In BSO on August 12, 2010 at 1:28 pm

With almost three months until the most highly-anticipated season in recent memory, the NBA has released their full schedule of regular season games.

As with every season, there are some games on the schedule that fans everywhere have circled as must-see. Not to anyone’s surprise, most of these games include the back-to-back defending NBA Champion Lakers and the NBA’s new Villains, the Miami Heat, who will meet on Christmas Day in possibly the most anticipated regular season game in recent history.

The Lakers and Heat aren’t the only teams in marquee games, so let’s take a look at the ten most anticipated games in the NBA this season:

Lebron’s Choice – The Effects of “The Decision”

In BSO on July 12, 2010 at 9:12 pm

When Lebron James officially made “The Decision”, my first impulse was to write an article blasting “King” James for copping out and taking what seems like a short-cut in a career that many expect to be one of the greatest of all-time.

However, out of respect for my readers and knowing that you were about to get 654 articles like that on Friday, I decided to sit back for the weekend and fully analyze the ramifications of what had just happened. I truly wanted to sit back and figure out exactly why Lebron chose Miami, why he chose to announce his “Decision” the way he did, and why exactly the reaction outside of South Beach was so harsh to James.

Like every decision any human being makes, there are pros and cons to what James did. We know one of the biggest pros is playing with Wade/Bosh and competing for titles the rest of the decade. We also know one of the biggest cons is that James will probably never peacefully return to Cleveland and instantly became one of, if not the most, hated players in the league. But what other factors play into the pros and cons of this decision?
