New York Knicks Preview

Tonight the NBA gets underway!  Opening night means a lot of things across the league but for Knicks fans its means optimism.  Even if false optimism, New York fans always think this will be the year everything turns around and a long playoff run in coming in the following months.  We know how things usually work out and Knicks fans will hate the roster and how the season shakes out but that is future Steve’s problem.  Right now its time to looks at this roster and see what the biggest questions/ issues will be for the New York Knickerbockers. Projected Starting Continue reading New York Knicks Preview

Pick your Conference

I wish I could say this was my idea but the someone at ESPN said something i found extremely interesting that could relate to all sports but right now let focus on the NBA.  What if your conference was a tradable asset?  Could teams swap conferences in exchange for draft picks, players, or straight up for swapping conferences? Let’s not think about the silly stuff like well what about travel and rivalries, who cares this could be lots of fun.  Look at the NBA this year besides the Heat the next top 10 teams are probably playing in the West.

NBA Eastern Conference Preview

And…we’re back.  Year 2 of the AVS over/under NBA preview is upon us and we have expanded it this year to include predictions on all 30 teams.  We have big shoes to fill as last year we hit on 13/16 over/under totals among the 16 playoff teams (thank you!, thank you!) and our promise this year is to do even better than that. In my column you will notice one broad theme that will aid me with many of my predictions.  The upcoming draft is one of the deepest and most talented classes in years.  Certainly since 2003 (LeBron, Wade, Continue reading NBA Eastern Conference Preview
