20 of the 34 games in FEB-APR are teams that are expected not to be good. You win mostof those and win a couple here or there vs ATL, maybe UTA at home, and you have one hell of a hot streak goign into the playoffs.

We just have to come out of the gates after NOV 18 in half decent shape after the road games and we should be ok.

Wow, 16 of the Lakers first 20 games are at home. Wow. Can you be any more obvious?

We get to watch the Raps play the Knicks on ESPN... I guess they want to see how good Bosh looks in MSG.

Wow, surprise...a tough Nov-Dec? I can here Jack Armstrong at Christmas saying as usual "get through the schedule until February and the schedule eases up. The same old same old.

Not even close. Its not how you start, its how you finish, and as Ive outlined, our FEB-APR is probably the easiest in the NBA.

Let's get ready to Rumble. Who covers Shaq in game #1.
Who matches up best with the King?
Brutal start but lets hope we get off to good start.

the question is who does shaq get to chase up and down the floor.. i suspect that any type of up tempo game will find shaq hanging out around mid-court sucking wind!! we need to realize that we are a much better team than we think... teams will have to figure out how to stop us at most of the positions on the floor.. the cavs will rely way more on LBJ than they did last year as shaq will be useless most nights unless he comes into camp at around 300 pounds... he is old and slow and he WAS a winner, now he is a distraction... clogging up the key is NOT what the cavs need and is something that we can take advantage of with a quick hitting offensive plan... we have the pieces... we really do...

Aren't you like 15? Bredren, if you came to my door, I'd throw the candy down the street and tell you to go get it.

Shaq is one of the most dominant big man to every play.
Even last season he showed he still has gas left in the tank.
Labron and Old Shaq = 60 plus wins again.
Toronto has to utilize there big men and run pick and roles and fast
break alot to beat Cleveland. Are team has Improved put I think
Cleveland will have are number in the First meeting.

Shaq won't be in shape in game 1. No way. He won;t be a factor until game 10 or so when he finally works into game shape. This game will be close. Whoever wins will do so by 5 points or less.

It'll be Christmas before he's in shape as usual. And the same with AP, who the last 2 seasons has struggled bigtime outta the gate. Unless he's highly motivated.
