SPORTSLAND 83 delves into the prospects of who can beat the Miami Heat
The NBA season finally arrives, better late than never, and the Sportsland, Oregon gang have it covered.
From top to bottom.
Lostradamus and company make all of their predictions, starting off with the playoff picture for both the Eastern and Western Conferences.
Which teams will all those player moves, some of them from earlier in the day, affect most and why.
Can anyone beat Miami this year? The Sportsland Crew makes its call.
Is LeBron going to blow out the league and be MVP this season? Kobe still got enough game to lead the Lakers to the Finals? Chris Paul going to shove his skills into the face of the Lakers and Commissioner David Stern for not letting the Lakers trade for him?
Dirk tough enough to lead the Mavs to back-to-back titles? Celtics anyone. What about the Knicks? They haven't been an entertaining team in a decade or more.
All-NBA? Got it.
Rookie of the Year? Got it.
Sixth Man of the Year? Got it.
Coach of the Year? Got it.
Even Most Improved Player of the Year.
Where do the Blazers fall? Are any of them worthy of awards?
The Sportsland crew decides.
All that, plus the usual segments, including What We Wanna Watch and What Plucks My Duck..It's all recorded at Blitz Pearl in Northwest Portland.
