The confetti has finally been cleared from the streets of Los Angeles, and the Lakers are ready to begin this year's title defense. It won't come easy if the other powers in the NBA have anything to say about it.
The Cavaliers are hungry for a title, bordering on desperate, as this may be the last year of LeBron James' stay in Cleveland. They've added a big veteran piece in Shaquille O'Neal in the hopes of taking advantage of King James' potential. Boston's Big Three will be (hopefully) healthy, hearty, hale, and joined by new pickup Rasheed Wallace. The Magic lost Hedo Turkoglu, but gained a potent veteran scorer in the person of Vince Carter. The Spurs are ever-dangerous in the West, while Denver and Portland are two young and talented teams that could end up making waves in the playoffs.
