    why do I have the feeling my magic will face the heat on a couple of 3rd nights of a back to back to back

    Quite a tough schedule, especially for the older players. San Antonio and Boston will struggle with their squads. Wouldn’t be surprised if one of them teams didn’t make the playoffs this season.

    There will be an All-Star game right??

    Back to back to backs are going to be hellish for everyone.

  • Overtime

    Ouch, that could be pretty nasty on a few teams. Tho 2bh, I imagine the league will only give out the max back-back-backs to basement teams, Cleveland etc.
    GP23, last I read, the All-Star game will happen, haven’t heard anything to contradict.
    Maybe they just eliminate the couple of days break they normally have?

    HOT DAMN! Back to Back to Back……

    You can be pretty sure the Lakers will be on of those teams with only 1 back-to-back-to-back.

    The Back2Back2Back sets are going to be so hard on knees, and season ticket holders.


    This year the Knicks will shock the world!

    Better get stock in tiger balm or Ginseng.
    Those back to back to back’s are gonna make such products more popular than ever in the trainer’s bags.


    I think the only think the back2back2backs is definitely gonna make the competition less, especially for teams that have alot of old guys. Many of the teams with young legs should breeze through it easily.
