The NBA started on October 27, 2015 with the Pistons defeating the Hawks. Two more followed that, officially tipping off the NBA. This season is going to be full of nice moves and buzzer beaters. Each team has playmakers and have a chance of making some noise this season. Even the Lakers have a pretty good team and could possibly contend for a playoff spot. In addition to all the returning playmakers, there is a lot of young talented playmakers ready to live their dream and make their mark in the NBA. Young Talent such as Jahlil Okafor, Justise Winslow, Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell and a lot more. Some rookies took no time to dominate like their known for, such as Jahlil Okafor with 26 points and 7 rebounds. Unfortunately, some rookies had envisioned their first NBA game to go a lot smoother than it did. Emmanuel Mudiay had 11 turnovers not seeming to get comfortable in his game against the Rockets. In a video game that would even be a horrible game. If my player in the game obtained 11 turnovers I would have to restart the game and try again, but consequently for Emmanuel, he doesn’t have a restart button. That’s how it is for rookies sometimes, some are just quicker to getting their “sea legs.” Even with so much new talent to watch who can forget the players you know are going to lead their team to their full potential. Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, and more returning stars are going to do amazing things this year. For players of this caliber it’s exciting to see what they will do because anything is possible for them. Records, buzzer beaters, you name it and these guys are capable of doing it. It’s just a matter of waiting to see who shines more because all of them will shine regardless. Overall this NBA season will be a privilege to watch and I can’t wait to go home and watch tonight’s games.
