It's hard to consider that the NBA season is already over. The first ball hasn't even been tipped and if you ask most folk the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors are destined to be there at the end facing each other (again) for the championship trophy. Maybe they're right, but with Pau Gasol going to San Antonio and the maturity of Toronto I don't think it's going to be so easy for the Cavs and Dubs to make the Finals. Chicago has arguably gotten better, the laughable Knicks have made an attempt to make a difference, I think the Toronto Raptors are going to make things interesting in the Eastern Conference. The Spurs, Clippers, Thunder, and others will make the Western Conference tougher than people think.
It's hard to bet against Durant joining the already deep Warriors and betting against LeBron James is never smart, but I can't come to the consensus that the season is already over. Will they meet up at the end like Vegas thinks, maybe, but there's too much parity in the Association to decide it in October.
