600- The NBA started last night! And it really gets going today… NBA predictions, in general… I got Heat over Lakers, ok, well EVERYONE is going to have Heat vs Lakers or Heat vs Thunder… Non-Rockets NBA preseason TOP thoughts or predictions or questions, etc…
630- Top 3
645- RE-DO Your Playoff Predictions! Before the season, I had Texans, Patriots, Broncos, Ravens, Chargers Jets… Lopez had Texans, Patriots, Broncos, Ravens, Steelers, Colts? I’m not sure… In the NFC I had Eagles, Giants, Bears, Packers, Saints, Seahawks (AHHH!) and I have no clue what John had….
700- Rockets season starts today! Who’s excited? I’m excited. Harden’s gotten me completely on board… Don’t like Asik, unsure on Lin, but very excited for Harden and Jones and a few others… I’m upping my win prediction drastically…
-Also, I kept qualifying it yesterday… Right now today, how many players in the league are better than James Harden? Because I think he’s a Top 15 player (like 13, 14 or 15) but still, Top 15.
Guys Better or Possibly Better than James Harden: LeBron, Durant, Kobe, Howard, Rose, Westbrook, Carmelo, Wade, Bosh, CP3, Love, Griffin, Irving, D Will, Aldridge, Parker, Ginobili, Bynum, Monroe, Dirk, Cousins, Josh Smith, Hibbert
