I'm pretty excited for the NBA season to start. I was a Knicks fan until ownership decided to let Jeremy Lin go so now I'm a converted Lakers fan. I have my reasons but I'm a Lakers fan because 1) one of my close friends is a hardcore Lakers fan 2) the company I work for, Time Warner Cable, owns the broadcast rights to Laker games 3) because I think the Knicks suck for letting Jeremy Lin go. Lakers look awesome on paper with Kobe, Howard, Gasol, Artest, and Nash in the starting lineup. They will kick everyone's butt. I cannot wait!
