The BEST team can lose to the WORST team on any given night in pro sports.
i thought it was more likely to happen in football or baseball.

Well watch more sports on a regular basis, and you'll see it's not the rare occurrence you believe it to be.

Fair enough, in that case you're not in position to give an educated opinion on whether the Thunder are legit contenders, or anyone else for that matter, since you haven't watched enough.

Oh, and I don't have league pass either. But I have net access to every game, every night....

Yeah, I don't have the time to watch many games but I look at almost every single box score and have been an NBA fan for over 20 years.

There are things you miss by not watching so many games but at the same time you don't get caught up in the hype of a guy making a great play....but then committing sloppy turnovers that people tend to forget about.

I generally try to catch most of the *better* match-ups like whenever a pair of top tier teams run into each other.

Mathguy, for someone who doesn't watch too many games as you claim, you have perfectly reasonable Basketball analytical ability. You're not out there making wild claims like, oh I don't know, let's say the Bulls lose to the Wizards this season, that means they're not contenders. I mean seriously....

P.S Not sure if you understood completely, when i said 'or anyone else for that matter', I was referring to teams, not posters on here.

I knew what you meant, was just throwing in my 2cents as an aside.

Well, the 76ers are still holding their home court. Just for fun, when they hit their tough road stretches more towards the end of the season we can claim they are choking lol.

i thought the celtics would have a chance because of the sixers tough schedule but the sixers will not be caught by the end of the season. it wouldn't surprise me to see the sixers in the eastern conference finals since it's only one good team in the east...miami

Bulls have the best record in the east....and that's with having played 17 road games so far this season.

76ers have played 9 road games so far.

Aw, this thread is going to be funny as heck as the year goes on.
