The NBA season starts off tomorrow with a few games I am really excited to watch! The Miami Heat game, L.A. Lakers game without Kobe Bryant because of last year’s season ending injury, and the Oklahoma Thunder who are also without one of their stars Russell Westbrook leaving Kevin Durant to carry a heavier workload.
Miami Heat are looking like they could win the NBA championship for the third season in a row. Kevin Durant is expected to be the leading scorer in the league, but will be competing with Lebron James.
Dwight Howard has left the Lakers to join the Houston Rockets to join up-and-coming star James Harden, who played against the WSU Cougars when he played for ASU. I think it will be interesting to see how Howard fits with this team because of his rough season with the Lakers last year where it seemed like he just couldn’t get in sync with the team.
Former WSU star shooting guard Clay Thompson is continuing his NBA career with another good season with the Golden State Warriors. Thompson and Stephen Curry are two of the most dangerous three-point shooters in the league.. Not too shabby coming from WSU!
