1. Seeing Bynum and Gasol together for the first time.
2. Lakers vs. Celtics again...I want some revenge.
3. Any time its young big vs. older, legendary big (shaq vs. oden, bynum, etc.), young vs. another young, or old legend vs. old legend.
4. D-wade being better than ever.
5. This is more of a want, but I really hope that the western conference playoff race is as good as last year's (i'll take the east being as exciting, too lol). It felt like the playoffs for 3 months before the actual playoffs.

- Seeing Ian Mahinmi
- Healthy D-Wade
- Tyrus Thomas with another summer under him, and now having a consistent oppurtunity
- Derrick Rose
- NBA on TNT
- Jeff Van Gundy
- New and improved 76ers

Pretty much

I guess one thing I'd label that I'm looking forward to is the endings. I love flipping through the close games as they end (via online, I know) and watching the suspense and intensity of the tail end of the 4th. Nothing I love more than the ending of tight bball games.

1. Watching Michael Phelps getting signed by the Knicks
2. Mike D'Antoni getting fired mid-season
3. Watching LeBron tell his mom to sit her ass down one more time
4. Watching Bosh's GF piss Kobe off (since apparently it didn't work on LeBron)
5. Watch as David Stern rigs another playoff year so he can get the Celtics and Lakers in the Finals once again.

Number 2 would be highest on my list. I think if AK can get over 2bpg and 1.5spg and around 12ppg 6 rpg and 4apg that I'll be fine with that, any better than and I'd be stoked. Remember how well AK started last season? 10.9ppg 6.8rpg 5.6apg 1.9spg 2.3bpg in 16 games in November. It'd be my dream come true if he could post those numbers all year long.

Wow people act like he's inked a deal already. Utah will most likely be able to sign him for more than any other team, and if history has shown us anything, he likes money.

EDIT: I actually hope the Jazz don't give him a long term max contract though since Paul Millsap would probably stay for about 7-10 million less.
