Since the news broke that there is going to be an NBA season this year Chris Paul and Dwight Howard have stolen the spotlight. The past week we’ve been inundated with stories about where Chris Paul wants to go, and where he’s going to end up. On top of that, there have been headlines addressing the future of Dwight Howard.
The big names are stealing the spotlight, but let’s not forget that Paul and Howard are still members of their respective teams. We can speculate all we want, but that’s just what it is at this point; speculation.
What about the real stories? The stories that aren’t speculation, but reality. We haven’t forgotten you. Take a look.
(5) The Miami Heat are 2-1 Favorites To Win It All
2-1 are pretty small odds. I mean that’s almost saying at least put them in the Finals for sure. I mentioned in an earlier post that no team needed this season more than the Heat. A lost year would have been horrible for them. Let’s not forget the Lebron, Wade, Bosh show is still playing in South Beach.
(4) The New Jersey Nets….
….. are one season away from becoming the Brooklyn Nets. This team will be as active as it gets in their attempt to acquire players. I do believe they will make a heavy run to get Deron Williams and Dwight Howard together. Without Howard, Williams is a goner. I’m looking for this team to make moves. Jay-Z wouldn’t have it any other way.
