Part 1 is here.
Sunday marks the arrival of NBA basketball once again. The MMB staff answers some questions on what they expect from this compacted season. Feel free to chime in with your own answers to the questions in the comments.
Tim: Relaxed. This is no small thing with the hustle and bustle of a compacted, 66-game season, but with a championship finally under the belts of most of these Mavericks, this season shouldn't be frantic at all. While other teams may be straining throughout the regular season, feeling the pressure that they have to win a championship this year, the Mavericks can relax knowing they are the reigning champs and just have to do enough until they reach playoff times again.
