          If Joey keeps us winning, the crowd needs to start "Joey" chants at the next Raps game.
          OG is our king

            If Joey changes his name to Bruno, I think we can get this done.

              Hahaha Its my Dogs name actually, and he loves to sit by the TV and watch the ball get whipped around; so I was laughing pretty hysterically when they were chanting his name.

                Tough game.

                Toronto can win it if they remain intense and aggressive.

                  So far, we've lost to two teams with a) great coaching and b) continuity.

                  The West has way more teams like that than the East. Will be interested in how the Raptors handle the Suns, Mavs, Trailblazers, Warriors and San Antonio.

                  For some reason, teams like the Rockets, Kings and the Clippers scare me less. They have talent but they're not particularly well-coached.

                      Hmm, you dont like Rivers? With the Raps now (and coaching) if they can control CP the Clips can be beat. I know its difficult but so is Lebron.

                        Not too sure how you figure Miami has continuity. Huge turnover this summer, I think they lost some James guy

                          this is a horrible matchup for us
                          phoenix can run run run in transition and from what ive seen, our transition defense is putrid esp in the early stages of the game
                          also phoenix likes to play a lot of small ball, which is really weak for us when JJ is out
                          expect to see a lot of pj tucker and morris at the 4 to expose the slow footed amir johnson

                          they have a lot of guys that can get hot quickly, so it will be interesting to see how we are going to handle them

                            Rivers strikes me as a great locker room leader and a so-so GM/coach.

                            In regards to Miami, you have to give Spoelstra and the Heat organization credit. The players they have have bought in and seeing how they perform compared to Cleveland just proves that chemistry and coaching still matters. They have every excuse to roll over but obviously between Wade, Bosh and Spoelstra there is enough leadership and professionalism to at least stay competitive.

                              I actually think the Heat will be more successful than the Cavs this year. The Cavs are just a stinking mess of a team right now.
