    Huh? Heat and sixers dude. Cavs Mavs and Spurs aren’t easy games. No games are in the NBA are easy really

    There are only 19 games. Eyeballing it, I think 11 wins 8 losses is more likely.

    We'll be in first place in the WC after those 20 games!

    This is going to be the best cheesy sports movie of all time! A bunch of injured and/or aging vets and undrafted youngsters find a common goal after being overlooked by the entire NBA and will their way to a title.

    Get outta town, Hoosiers!
    Hit the road, The Blind Side!
    GTFO, Rudy!
    To the glue factory, Seabiscuit!

    The tagline: "NOW who's laughing?"

    I'm sure the Lakers said the same thing about Detroit!! On any given night, you can get beat.....take every game serious and one at a time.
