2013 is here!
May the New Year bring us plenty of exciting and unexpected moments from the NBA.
So what are some of the things we can look forward to in the upcoming year? Here are some notable questions heading into January:
Will the Golden State Warriors survive the tough months ahead to make the playoffs? Will Andrew Bogut return this season?
Will Andrew Bynum, Derrick Rose and Danny Granger make a successful comeback from injuries in time to help make an impact for their respective teams?
Can Amare Stoudemire finally fit in with Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler in New York? He will be playing on Tuesday, as you will find out below.
Are the Lakers good enough to contend for a championship this season? Can Dwight Howard regain his explosiveness?
DeMarcus Cousins has insisted on wanting to stay in Sacramento. Will the team move the troubled center anyway?
Can the 34-year-old Dirk Nowitzki make the Dallas Mavericks relevant again?
Okay, so these aren’t exactly the jolliest of questions, but they’re certainly topics we look forward to seeing the answers to in the coming months.
