I am just stunned by the quality of play at the start of the season. The NBA has developed a reputation for lazy lackadaisacal regular season play.

Not this year. Every team is playing balls out. Every PLAYER is playing balls out. The fans are crazy loud. Arenas and games seem to have a playoff atmosphere and intensity already.

It's the best of both worlds: college basketball intensity, with the superior athleticism of the pro game. WTF is going on?

I think this season is the best season for a rookie class but certainly not the greatest season ever, lol.

the beginning of the season is always intense and exciting. I'm enjoying it so far though even though I hate the younger generation of players.

Im tempted to buy leaguepass but they dont have it on my Cable. Is the version for your laptop worth it?

I hate the younger generation players though. There so unexciting compared to the 90s and early 2000 young guns. And they lack confidence.

Nope. Won't even be better than 2011 which certainly by far was the best season of the 2000's.

2006 was the greatest season I ever witnessed... LeBron, Kobe, Wade, Dirk, Nash, & everyone else killed that entire year & the playoffs had buzzer beater after buzzer beater

& this is no where near the best rookie class

Why, because D. Rose won MVP? :laugh2:

I agree with this.


2006 was the season of historic scoring.

Kobe - 35.4
Iverson -33.0
LeBron -31.4

I guess WWII wasn't in the 1900's? Or the Civil War wasn't in the 1800's?:rolleyes:

I liked 2008 just because of that MVP race.

Lebron averaged like 30-8-8 and finished 4th. :laugh: When is that going to happen again?

Probably within the next couple years, because Lebron will do it again and not get voted as the MVP somehow.

I actually think the OP has a good point in terms of talent. The league still has a number of future Hall of Fame guys playing at the tail end of their primes or still playing at a high level, while the top guys are among the greatest crop of talent the league has ever seen and there are a number of young players in their third or fourth seasons who are just hitting their primes at the right time. This rookie class also has the ability to be among the best in a long time.

The point guards and wings are among the most talented crop that have ever been in the league at any given time. And although there aren't nearly as many elite centers, there are a ton of extremely talented offensive bigs in the league right now.

However, he strength of the season is often later based on the entertainment value of its postseason and the strength of its best teams, so we'll have to wait a while to see how that goes. If the Heat are as good or better than last season, OKC can deal with the loss of Harden, and older teams like LA, San Antonio, Boston and NY can make runs, this has potential to be a great NBA season.

I'm just amazed by how 'hot' the crowds are. ATL has never been known as a basketball town but their fans were crazy loud on opening night. Even Pistons fans showed up in force and made noise.

Players are diving for loose balls and just playing full tilt. It's crazy, man. Here it comes.







Wait for it.







Wait for it...








I LOVE THE NBA!!!

It's the beginning of the season so every team has hope. 3 or 4 weeks in, the good teams will be good and the bad bad so excitement will wane in about half of the league's cities.

Best draft class was easily 2003.
