  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA New Orleans Hornets 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The New Orleans Hornets entered last season with very high expectations. They were coming from 56 and 49 wins in the last two regular seasons and with a healthy Tyson Chandler starting the season and a solid draft yielded productive rookies, the Hornets were a virtual lock...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Philadelphia 76ers 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The Philadelphia 76ers have been stuck into the mediocrity since the “old” Allen Iverson days and last season they gave one step back in their development. I remember that they went to the playoffs the two years prior of the last season, but in both seasons they had a barely...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Cleveland Cavaliers 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Season Review: The Cleveland Cavaliers were the only team to reach the 60 wins mark during the regular season and they looked ready to make a Championship run in the playoffs, but we all know what happened then… Lebron James was the league’s best player in the regular season and deservedly...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Indiana Pacers 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Season Review: The Jim O’Brien era in Indiana was supposed to be fun and entertaining to watch, but instead the team amassed a 104-142 record – only 42.3% winning record and I seriously doubt that O’Brien will survive another season in Indiana if the team doesn’t show any kind of improvement...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Phoenix Suns 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: What a hell of a season the Phoenix Suns had last year, didn’t they?! After missing the playoffs for the first time in 4 years in the previous season, the expectations weren’t that high for the Suns. The oddsmakers gave them a 41/42 total wins line for the season, so the expectations...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Golden State Warriors 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: At last Don Nelson passed Lenny Wilkens for first all-time on the list of the NBA’s winningest coaches when “his” Warriors defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves on April 7, 2010, achieving his 1,333rd career win. Besides this highlight, the Warriors have nothing positive to show...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Houston Rockets 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: Even though a 42-40 record isn’t a great career highlight for any head coach, it was enough to (once again) show how terrific Rick Adelman is as a head coach. The Rockets finally got through the first round of the playoffs in 2008-09 by defeating the Blazers before being eliminated...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Miami Heat 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: It’s almost irrelevant to talk about the Heat’s last season because there won’t be any sign of continuity between last season’s version and the current powerhouse that the Heat have transformed into during the offseason. Nevertheless it is curious to notice that basically...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Denver Nuggets 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The Denver Nuggets were 2 games away from being in the NBA Finals two seasons ago and their high expectations were pretty legit going for the last season. Admittedly they wanted to win it all last season, but in doing so they would have to enjoy another lucky injury-free season...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Oklahoma City Thunder 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: Not a long time ago, the Oklahoma City Thunder had started their first season in Oklahoma City with a 4-29 start and finished the season 2008-09 with the fourth worst record in the league! To think that, in just one season, they would be able to put a bold scare into the Lakers...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Toronto Raptors 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The Toronto Raptors knew that last season was a pivotal season for the franchise because Chris Bosh was entering his final year of the contract and the Raptors would have to show some competitiveness in order to convince CB4 to stay in Toronto, at the end we all know what happened...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Sacramento Kings 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: Even though the Sacramento Kings had the second worst record in the Western Conference last season, they have shown some signs of excitement regarding their future. Note that at the end of the year, the Kings had a 14-17 record to show with some impressive outings from their...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Chicago Bulls 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Season Review: The Chicago Bulls entered last season with some expectations after a splendid first round matchup against the Boston Celtics in the previous year, in which the Bulls lost in 7 games. They choose to not give an extension to Ben Gordon and the plan was to hope for the...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Dallas Mavericks 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The Dallas Mavericks were the winners of the trade deadline last season when they acquired Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood from the Washington Wizards and many pundits predicted them to be the second best team in the West. The truth must be told: they finished the regular...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Portland Trailblazers 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The last year of the Kevin Pritchard’s reign in Portland was a successful season if you think about it, but the Trailblazers once again failed to fulfill their potential by not being able to put together a healthy season. Nicolas Batum didn’t start playing until late in December;...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA San Antonio Spurs 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The San Antonio Spurs started last season with high expectations for a Championship run and actually they had the personnel to think about such goal. They got a charitable trade from Milwaukee to acquire Richard Jefferson for basically nothing and on the paper their roster ...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA New York Knicks 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The New York Knicks had another horrible season last year just to add to the others awful seasons that the Franchise has presented in the last decade. This time it was all about creating the best possible conditions for the team to receive some superstar players in the upcoming...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Los Angeles Lakers 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The Los Angeles Lakers had only one goal last season and they were able to accomplish the supreme feat of winning back to back NBA Championships. It was an up and down season, but in the end, they wrote their names in the Larry O’Brien trophy once again. They started the season...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Charlotte Bobcats 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: With almost 70 years, Larry Brown showed once again that he is still one of the best head coaches in the league by leading the Bobcats to the first playoff appearance in franchise history. His signature was (as usually) a fierce defensive team that was crowed as the best in...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Los Angeles Clippers 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The Los Angeles Clippers had really high expectations for last season and actually this time, those expectations were pretty legit. After all Marcus Camby and Chris Kaman were healthy entering the season; Baron Davis promised to have a bounce back season; the Clippers were...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Memphis Grizzlies 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: If we discount the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Memphis Grizzlies has to be considered the most surprising team in the Western Conference last season. They were supposed to be one of the worst teams in the league, as the oddmakers had them listed to win 28/29 wins, but instead...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Atlanta Hawks 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The final year of the Mike Woodson’s reign in Atlanta proved to be another solid and consistent season, but ended in an ugly fashion note at the ends of the Orlando Magic in the second round of the playoffs. Still the Atlanta Hawks improvement through the last years can’t...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Minnesota Timberwolves 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Review: The Minnesota Timberwolves have been a bizarre franchise in the last years and for this season, they carry the not likable label of being the worst NBA team in the last 3 seasons! During this span, the Wolves won 22, 24 and 15 games for a terrifying winning mark of just 24.7...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Milwaukee Bucks 2010-2011 Season Preview

    2009/10 Season Review: No other team in the NBA was able to overachieve like the Bucks overachieved last season. I remember that the oddmakers had the Bucks to win 26/27 games, but they ended the regular season with a 46-36 record and a trip to the Playoffs where they forced the Hawks to a ...
  • Blog Post: Andre Gomes NBA Detroit Pistons 2010-2011 Season Preview

    NOTICE: The NBA 2010/11 season is just around the corner and as always, I will present a complete preview for every team in the league. Note that any other relevant information like my Money Management or the release dates will be discussed later, thanks. 2009/10 Season Review: We all...
