If I could watch 5 teams on sterling HD on League Pass they would be:
I would not ever want to see:
They'll be on national TV most nights anyway.
I left out the Bobcats as they're the obvious #1 and local.
I think its funny that the Clippers have become the Heat opposite. They're younger and more exciting. They're truly playing to win I think; not giving it lip-service like in Miami.
Who would you pick/pan?
My list is a lot like yours - probably a common theme for many Bobcats fans.
In the spirit of the thread, I'm also leaving out the Bobcats, which would be #1 for sure.
1. Clippers-- I'm on the bandwagon. Given that only a handful of teams will seriously vie for the championship, they're an easy choice to support.
2. Blazers-- They may be going downhill as a team, but I love Felton and Wallace. Hoping they play well this year.
3. Thunder-- another elite team that's easy to support.
4. Timberwolves-- Some great young talent.
5. Wizards-- Call me crazy, but I want to see the Young/Wall backcourt develop.
I'm not going to include Lakers/Heat/Knicks/Celtics, the power house teams, though they fit on the list.
1. Raptors-- what a terrible team. DeRozan is the only guy I'd even want to watch.
2. Suns-- Love Nash, but the ship is sinking.
3. Cavs-- never have I been so uninterested in two high draft picks.
This was hard. There aren't a lot of teams other than the Bobcats that I really want to watch, but most other teams have at least one or two guys I want to see play.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
I just cant help watchin lebron dwight and rose..
English Bobcat Fan
Grizzlies - Z-Bo, Gasol, Tony Allen and co. are so much fun to watch, and the announcers for Memphis are among the best in the league. For real, check them out. The real-life dad from The Blind Side is one of their color guys, Sean Tuohy I think.
Thunder - Durant and Westbrook. Need I say more?
Bulls - If you have WGN, then you don't need this, but for me, Rose is must-watch tv no matter what.
Pacers - They're going to be pretty damn good, and I've always liked Granger and Hill's games.
Bucks - Jennings, Jackson and Bogut...they might suck, but it'll be entertaining as hell.
Heat - Do I even need to explain?
Lakers - Ditto.
Clippers - I'm already sick of them.
Hornets - Anyone who paid for ST's there should bathe in their own tears.
Pistons - They suck...a lot.
Grizzlies - Z-Bo is one scary beast. They're also enjoyable to watch.
Clippers - CP3/Griffin, I wanna watch that.
Timberwolves - Super Cool Beasley, Rubio, Love
Bucks - Big fan of Bogut since he's from Aus. Jackson can also be entertaining when he goes on a tirade (thankfully not on our team anymore though). Jennings is meh.
Hard to pick a 5th, think I'll pass on a 5th for now.
Heat - Boring
Hornets - Please
Lakers - Overshown
Proud Australian Bobcats Fan!!!
I have no interest whatsoever in watching Miami/LAL/Boston.
But 5 I would pick:
Sixers: I like the Turner/Holiday/Williams combo. Young team that could be a sleeper in the East. I also like Iggy.
Clippers: For reasons stated above.
Blazers: It's too bad Roy is gone but they've still got Wallace/ Aldridge and now Felton. Plus I'm a fan of Nate McMillan.
Mavericks: Big fan of Dirk and Kidd.
Warriors: Ellis/Curry/Lee and Mark Jackson as head coach. Could be a sleeper in the West.
Watched the Clippers/Warriors late game on ESPN last night. CP3 was amazing at the end closing it out.
Dribble stop side step crossover lurch back step swish; repeat three times.
....and I think I luv Jeff Van Gundy.
Heh I'm dropping the Kings and adding the Blazers instead. Forgot about Wallace/Felton; forgive me!
Also dropping the Grizz and adding the Warriors; tough call but it's got to be made.
