Pro Basketball Update for November 2009

By James Waltham

I know that it’s very early in the season, but it’s never too early to begin an exciting conversation that can get basketball lovers going back and forth for hours. It’s a simple question, but the answer is never so easy. Who is the best team in the NBA this season?

Sure, a lot can change over the course of the season and it probably will. Still, I have some strong opinions about the state of the league right now and some of the teams that many predicted would dominate.

As much as I believe that Shaquille O’Neal, Vince Carter, and Ron Artest are some incredibly talented players, I simply don’t think they’re the right fits for their teams. I think that each team is struggling to find its way with their new player, and hopefully they can adapt as the season progresses.

In the case of Ron Artest with the Lakers, I’m not quite sure if he’ll be good for the team. While he’s obviously an exceptional player, I think that he still has attitude and maturity issues to deal with.

I don’t believe that Ron Artest wins his team games. He’s a dramatic distraction to a team that had incredible chemistry.

Then we have Shaq in Cleveland. My thoughts are the same. For direct evidence of this, look at the Suns before Shaq, the Suns during Shaq, and the Suns without him now. They went from elite to average, back to great this season. Cleveland is struggling.

With the Magic, I’m just not a fan of Vince Carter. I loved him during the earlier part of the decade, but I think that his best days were behind him and I do think that Hedo Turkoglu was a better fit for the team.

The only team that I believe got it right was Boston. Having acquired veteran All-Star Rasheed Wallace, I think he blends in perfectly with the Celtics, and I’m not surprised to see that they’ve won their first six games.
