Time for an early look at the NBA. With all the furor over the Miami Heat, everyone else has been practically forgotten. But the Heat seem to have gained some footing and other teams there hot before are not now. And so, the Standings.
Los Angeles Lakers – Why does this team never seem to slump. The Lakers are 16-6 and hold a nice four-game lead in the Pacific. Business as usual.
San Antonio Spurs – Leading the Southwest and as usual, trying to stave off the Dallas mavericks. The New Orleans Hornets looked like a threat when they were 11-1 but since then have struggled and are now third at 14-7.
Utah Jazz- Hold a slime lead in the Northwest but the Oklahoma City Thunder are playing very well. I’m hoping that this division can beef up during the season and provide another threat to the dominance of the Lakers.
