The highly anticipated NBA season is finally upon us. Tonight, to tip off the season, TNT will broadcast a double header. Game one will feature LeBron James and his new Miami Heat teammates versus Shaquille O’Neal and his new band of brothers, the Boston Celtics. This will be followed by the reigning champs, the Los Angeles Lakers, taking on the Houston Rockets. The action starts at 7:30 EDT.
Many questions are circulating in our minds. Can Kobe and company three-peat? Will Shaq make a difference in Boston? Are the Oklahoma City Thunder for real? Are the Orlando Magic still contenders? Will LeBron, Bosh and Wade live up to hype?
The players’ hard work and off-season training, both in the gym and on the court, comes to fruition tonight. We’ll be there front and center with our eyes glued to the tube.
