I very much like your statement about entitlement. So many people (in life in general) have a false sense of entitlement and expect rewards without putting in sufficient effort. I always enjoy seeing people earn things, work hard, prove themselves, etc.
I remember you had a problem with Amare when he came to Portland as a member of the Suns. He was one of my favorite players on my favorite team, then. Suns are still my favorite team, but I don't follow Amare much anymore. It will be interesting to see where Nash ends up.
Looking at my predictions I realize it looks pretty silly. I picked the overall #1 seed in the West and the #2 seed in the East, but everyone's top pick for the finals, so I didn't really go out on much of a limb!
OKC will do well, but if San Antonio stays healthy, I don't think anyone can beat them.
I would love to see a Clippers vs. Lakers match up that results in Lakers going home!
That would be cool.
Go Nuggets tonight! I'm happy with Denver bouncing the Lakers out in the first round too!
