Behind enemy lines but staying out of harms way in the NBA

Yo, this is Nicky and I normally wait a week or so to get a feel for how the teams are going to come out of the box to start a season but I see some real opportunity on opening night. Firstly, everyone and their mother will be tuned to the debut of the Heat as they take on the Celtics and I have no idea what to expect from that game so I’m just going to sit back and enjoy the action with everyone else. Because of that all of the attention will be off the Lakers, their ring ceremony, and the begining of the quest to tree-peat. Besides the fact that Kobe doesn’t like that they’re not the team to beat right now, Bynum is still not in the lineup, there new guys are still trying to learn the triangle offense, and quite frankly, LA never shows up on opening day, even last year when they got their rings it also ended with a loss. In any case, I’m taking Houston (+7.5) as their part-time center is more than the Lakers have right now so even LA surprises me I can’t see them covering such a large number. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
