With the 2009-10 season quickly approaching, SS&R is joining a whole host of blogs, led by SB Nation's own CelticsBlog, in previewing the upcoming season. Now, I know what you're thinking — CelticsBlog?? But it's okay. Our Lakers are the reigning champs, so we're at the top of this pyramid, looking down. Besides, they may be the enemy, but we can still show good sportsmanship. Right, LeBron?
Anyhow, the Pacific Division is scheduled for a bit later in the month of October, so our contribution to this glorious project will be coming soon enough. In the meantime, I know you're not busy, so click on through for links to previews for the teams of the Atlantic and Southwest divisions. Should be interesting reading, and a good way to get to know our many potential rivals a bit better.
Here are your Atlantic division previews. Of course, pay special attention to the Celtics, as they're the most likely candidates from this group to challenge the Lakers for the championship, should our team return to the Finals.
New Jersey Nets
New York Knicks
Here are your Southwest division previews. Pay special attention to the Spurs, as they're most likely to be the Lakers' toughest competition in the battle to represent the West.
San Antonio Spurs
New Orleans Hornets
Stay tuned for more. Other divisions coming soon, and soon thereafter, we (and a few other Lakers blogs) will make our own contribution this grand group attempt to peer into the immediate future of the National Basketball Association.
