2004 NBA Season Preview

Will the Pistons repeat as NBA Champs? How will Shaq do in Miami? Check out the Coach's 2004 NBA Season Preview.

2004-2005 NBA Season Preview - Big Changes

The NBA will have several different looks for the 2004-2005 season. Shaq was shipped out of LA and is now playing for the Miami Heat, Kenyon Martin left the Nets for the Nuggets and Tracy McGrady and Steve Francis switched teams. All these changes mean you can expect to see some new contenders for NBA playoff spots. You'll also be seeing a new team as the Charlotte Bobcats tip off their first season in 2004-2005. They'll be playing in the Eastern Conference. Each conference will now have a total of 15 teams with three divisions of five teams.

  • Lebron James had a big rookie year and you can expect he'll continue right where he left off and get the Cavs into the playoffs.
  • The Houston Rockets will have lift off. Yao Ming plus Tracy McGrady could make the Rockets an unstoppable basketball force.
  • With the addition of Kenyon Martin, the Denver Nuggets will have a breakout year and become one of the top basketball teams in the Western Conference.
  • Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O'Neal will be a force for the Miami Heat and will turn the Heat into NBA title contenders.
  • The LA Clippers, the Chicago Bulls and the Golden State Warriors will stink up the joint yet again and will be about as exciting to watch as an Olsen Twins movie.

    Cheer-leading is a sport - most people think that it is not - but it is Yes it looks like they are just cheering on the football players - but their routines and being able to hold up girls over their head takes strength, and they work really hard to make everything look good.

    I liked cheering for the underdog, so I've always cheered for the Cavs. I'd like to see how this year's line-up goes, though our past best point guard left for the Celtics.  :/

    Mayo lost against Dublin again. 1-16 to 1-17. I support Mayo, and I am horrified to be honest. I don't want to sound like a sore loser, but I think Dublin fouled Mayo way more times than they were punished for it. Mayo rarely got any frees and the last free of the game was a minute before it ended and Dublin were taking it from very far away. Of course, they got it. Up until then, it was 1-16 to 1-16. I guess Mayo won't be taking home the cup again for another year.
