Yes, yes… 2016/2017 NBA Season

nba-team-logos-2017

Can you feel it?  Can you feel the ‘crisp’ in the air?  Can you hear the squeaking of basketball shoes on the hardwood?  Can you hear the fans chanting for their favorite team?  Well… It’s here!!  The start of another NBA season.

From all accounts, this looks like it will be a fun filled season. The Sixers youth movement will finally take shape and will win more games than last year.  You can feel the energy from the young teams trying to take the next step like the Bucks and Timberwolves.  Then you have teams like the Knicks, Bulls and Pacers who made moves to make, or better position themselves for the playoffs.  In the East, the Raptors and Celtics will continue to make noise at the top of the conference.  In the West, the Thunder and Blazers will try to keep up with the big boys.  Finally, the contenders for the crown as it stands today, the Cavaliers, Warriors, Spurs and Clippers will battle it out to see who gets that championship ring.
