So the 2010-11 NBA season tips off tonight with a bang. We finally get to see if all the hype surrounding the “Three Kings” and the rest of the Miami Heat is warranted. The Heat will receive an early test as they travel to Boston to take on the Celtics in what could very well be a preview of the Eastern Conference Finals. It’s highly possible to win big by betting on your favorite NBA players and teams on W88.
Will the Heat be able to click on all cylinders even though Dwayne Wade has had limited game action with his new teammates? Will the Heat win over 70 games? Or will the Celtics show that Geico is correct, by saying that things do get better with age?
Will the L.A. Lakers be able to conquer the NBA for a third straight year? And if so, where will that rank Kobe Bryant among the all-time greats?
Will Kevin Durant take that next step and prove to the world he is the best “young” star in the game?
Are the San Antonio Spurs capable of winning another championship?
How long will Carmelo Anthony be a Denver Nugget?
Don’t forget about all the young talent in the NBA. With guys like Tyreke Evans and Brandon Jennings emerging as some of the best at their respective positions, will they be able to take their teams to the next level?
All those questions and more will start to be answered tonight. Get your popcorn ready, a cold beverage of your choice and enjoy what is sure to be an exciting NBA season. As an avid NBA fan, you can start betting on your favorite basketball stars on online betting sites which may also have the best online slots where you can earn some extra cash if you want to.
Now the moment you all have been waiting for, my predictions for the 2010-11 NBA Season.
Rookie Of The Year: John Wall, Washington Wizards (although I would not be shocked if last years No. 1 overall pick Blake Griffin found a way to win the award).
Most Improved: Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia 76ers (A dark horse, Michael Beasley Minnesota Timberwolves)
Sixth Man: Jamal Crawford, Atlanta Hawks (Lamar Odom, L.A. Lakers and Manu Ginobili, San Antonio Spurs will also be in the conversation)
Defensive Player Of The Year: Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic (The only thing stopping Howard from winning this is an injury)
Coach Of The Year: Jerry Sloan, Utah (man, Sloan has to win eventually right? If not him, then possibly Tom Thibodeau. Thibodeau should have the Chicago Bulls in the hunt at the end of the season)
Most Valuable Player: Kevin Durant, Oklahoma Thunder (the kid is amazing and I doubt anyone would be shocked if he wins the award. However, if LeBron James averages a triple double like I believe he can, he will once again win the award)
Central: Chicago (Milwaukee may contend)
Pacific: L.A. Lakers
Southwest: San Antonio
Northwest: Portland (OKC may contend)
West: L.A. Lakers
