NBA basketball is in full swing in early December, and as the east is finally catching up to the perennial powerhouses of the west, people are already picking this year’s winners.
San Antonio and Dallas are both strong candidates in the western conference, while last year’s biggest story, the Golden State Warriors, are quickly falling behind.
In the east, the newly reconstructed Orlando Magic are getting the attention they deserve. Dwight Howard, the next great big man in the game, and Rashard Lewis have dominated early on. The Miami Heat, on the other hand, are thoroughly disappointing so far.
The season is still young, but early on it seems as though this will be a season to remember.
