    Can wait to hear Mark Cuban's comments on today's game.

    Did you see him on Tv? Disgusted.

    Is there another owner in any sport more fired up then him?

    Well I guess those football (soccer) guys are pretty rowdy.

    I agree with all your picks except Miami, I think they'll lose against the Bulls.

    Wow!

    See my Raptors I watched the whole game! Too bad the 1st game wasn't televised for me.

    Friday they are back on and I'm watching!

    One thing I don't understand though. Use Parker more.

    Euro League MVP. Come on! This guy should have monster games. Bosh and him can carry this team. I was hoping for 25+ points out of both of them.

    Use Parker!!!

    To me it doesn't matter much as long as Toronto does good since it's all Canada has.

    But i'm still sticking with my original guess that the Heat will take it.

    For me I'm rutting for the following teams in that order:

    1.Toronto - Canada's only team.
    2.Suns - Steve Nash = Canadian.
    3.Rockets - T-Mac got his shoes

    Hey, nice to see your back posting again.

    Is NBA big there? I'm not sure where you are getting the results from but if it's all televised for you then I'm impressed with the coverage.

    Which team are you ruting for?

    Steve Nash isn't Canadian. I think he's South African.

    Edit: Sorry, never realized he moved to Canada so young. Or that he ever moved there . The only place they mention him being from is South Africa for some reason. Probably cause there isn't a whole lot of Suns coverage outside or around the playoffs.

    Unfortunately I can't see all games but I find some streaming link here and there, mostly I follow games with live scoreboards of CBS and Espn when I can't see the games.

    My NBA interest bloomed as a friend of mine showed me the way by betting on it with Betfair I started following it at the beginning of this season and found that basketball is a really exciting game, the only downside of it are the lot of timeouts claimed during the game, a 12 minutes quarter can last more than half an hour and the very last minutes of the game are a pain in the ass but also heart breaking, depends on which side of the bet I am.

    In Italy no one gives a damn about NBA, all soccer here, but it's becoming pretty tiresome with all the gossip and talk about it so I needed to find something interesting like NBA.

    Imagine that when the Pistons will start to play here it is late night, the start is at 2:05 a.m. and Utah at 3:05.............Lakers' game starts at 4:30 and I'm not going to bet on it because I won't follow it until 7:00 a.m..............damned west coast.............going to sleep at 5:30 is bad but I'm lucky enough that I can do such a life.

    My favourite team?

    It's banal to say but I support Dallas, mainly because they gave me much joys with the bets and they are such a strong team, even with second liners like they demonstrated in the last games of this regular season.

    They simply have the consistency that many teams haven't ; Suns are great but they don't have the defensive consistency that Dallas has.

    My simpathy award goes obviously to Toronto for two reasons : !9 they are doing a great season against every prediction 2) they have Andrea "Mago" Bargnani
