A new NBA season

Here we go again!
A new NBA season on the way. And it's the usual suspects...world champ Lakers and the Celtics heading up the field. Lakers have the best player on the planet in Kobe Bryant and a young bench that just got a bit better with experience. Chicago's very own Shannon Brown is making a name for himself. The Lakers will be very tough to beat. The Celtics coming back with a healthy Kevin Garnett,while picking up help in Rasheed Wallace...nice pick up! However,father time is not on their side. They signed Rajon Rondo to an extention which help them in the long run. Rajon is coming into his own.
What's with Chris Paul and the Hornets??? They should be moving up instead of sideways and back.
What's with Shaq and the Cavaliers team??? I'm a big Shaq fan,so,time will tell. Shaq and Varejao together may be a problem. Don't sound the alarm just yet.
What's with Allen Iverson and the Grizzlies??? No one really wanted to pick him up over the summer,now he's stated his displeasure in not starting. He was allowed to return home to attend "Personal business". Wow!
Where's Jerry Stackhouse(no one picked him up yet),Tracy "T-Mac" McGrady(working out with trainer Tim Grover all summer and beyond hoping to get back to form),Michael Redd(injured again),Hasheem Thabeet(sitting on the Grizzlies bench).
We just hope Chicago's very own Antoine Walker and his shoulder-shimmy can get out of his financial-jimmy.

He always had a big smile and was a joy to be around,he had a low dribbling style at times that remined you of the Globetrotters,he would later join the Harlem Globtrotters,so,it kinda make you wonder where they got that spinning,Groucho style of dribbling of the Trotters came from. DuSable were "Fast-breaking and full court pressing team on their way to the 1954 State Championship. They did not win the title because of a lot of controversial calls that turned the game. Paxton led his team to 31 straight victories,wearing high "Pro" socks. Paxton H.S. team was a big inspriation for young kids in the community. The DuSable team played a new high-school style of basketball called "Run-and-Gun". They were averaging 80 points a game when the other high school teams were averaging 50. Paxton went on to Indiana University on scholarship,but his books were second to basketball. He got in trouble with gambling and alcohol. He left Indiana University and joined the Harlem Globetrotters. He came back to Chicago to lead a positive life being a inspriation to young people in the community.
