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?
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
