The NBA is still exciting to watch with a good variety of offensive and defensive teams. I think that more teams have a legitimate chance to win the NBA title this season than in recent years. The Western Conference is loaded and it won't be as easy for the Heat to come out of the Eastern Conference bracket as it was last season.
I still am a big NBA fan simply because of my love for the game of basketball. That being said, the egoes have gotten completely out of control the last five years and I really can't blame anyone who doesn't like it.
