    Games for tomorrow:

    Chicago @ Miami
    Phoenix @ L.A. Lakers

    Tipping Miami in a very close game and Lakers to get up.

    There's a thousand games on the 1st, so not going to list them here.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Suns Lakers game should be great with Kobe back in the side. I think he has been waiting for this re-match.

    Cannot beleive it. What a thrasing, last season Champions Miami have been absolutely hammered by the Bulls 108-66 in the season opener!

    Gaurd, Kirk Hinrich was the main man for the bulls with 26 points, 15 of which came in the 1st Half. Ben Wallace, showed why he was named defensive player of the year with 11 boards in a dominate Bulls outfit.

    Dwayne Wade still managed 25 points for the Heat, but to no avail as they were outclassed in all areas.

    The 52 point loss is the single biggest loss by the reigning champs in a season opener in the History of the NBA, worrying signs for Miami with an ageing line-up? or Just early season rust? Time will tell i guess.

    Damn!!!!!!! Miami got their ass kicked and thrown around! That was absolutely pathetic! White hot heat got washed out! Shaq with only 5 boards in 25 mins he played. Would have loved to see the fans faces after the final buzzer.

    I know it's only been one game into the season so far, but the Bulls are showing good signs for the future.

    Suns Lakers game was a good one. Kobe didn't play and they still picked up the victory! Odom getting 34 shooting 50% from the field. Pretty good performance by him. Anyone know the reason why he didn't play? Is he injured or something? Also whats up with Stoudemire? He didn't start and only played 11 mins.

    But he played in the pre-season, so no reason to take it slow now.

    Well there were a lot of games that took place today, and currently are taking place

    Great game between the Knicks and Grizzlies. Went to 3 OT to decide it, and Knicks only take it by 1 point. Looking foward to see if they can make the playoffs this year under Isiah Thomas.

    Hornets also picked up a victory in their opening game. Hornets are team that will make the playoffs this year without a doubt in my mind. Chris paul is a beast, and a really good Guard. And now with shooters like Peja in their team, they def have a chance of getting into the playoffs. Don't think they will go far in the playoffs however.

    Bucks also with a good win over the Pistons 105-97.

    Looks like Bogut had a strong comeback with 70% FG and 9 rebounds from 28 minutes. First game back from injury.

    97-94 win for the Cav's over the Wizards. LBJ doing the damage with 25 points & 11 rebounds. My pick for this years MVP. Good to see Larry Hughes getting his season off to a positive start after his torried end to last season with 27 points to his name.

    Got my self a copy of both NBA Live 07 and NBA 2k7 so heres a review for both of them.

    (Note I have them both on PS2, so the reviews are for PS2.)

    NBA 2k7:

    The graphics for these games are pretty much the same as NBA 2k6, but the players clothes move just a little bit in 2k7. The look is still better than Live 07 however. The new introduced signature shots is a great idea and it's a massive ad on to the game. Only problem with that is that if you want to edit a player and have them get signature shots, you can't. So after all the players with signature shots retire, everyone will have same shots in the game.

    Passing has also improved in the game, with more realistic passes. When in bounding the ball it won't be that easy as the AI in the game has improved dramatically. A lot more turnovers are in the game. If you play on Hall of Fame difficulty, you will get one hell of a challenge from every team.

    Also a few new camera angles have been added to the game, which also makes it more realistic.

    NBA Live 07:

    Let me tell you something about this game, the game play is awesome, the graphics, are horrible!! There are only 4 camera angles in this game, and 3 of them are crap! Baseline low, baseline mid, baseline high, and press box are the camera angles. If you aren't used to a side angle like press box, like me, you will have a hard time in this game. The other 3 angles are crap and either you are too close and can't see all the players, or you are too far and can't exactly see whats happening. Seriously if this game got better camera angles, and kept the graphics the same, then this game would sell way more copies than NBA 2k7.

    This game also has the freestyle superstar, which is a great addition. Richard Hamilton got his nasty jump shot, and Vince carter will dunk on anybody. This games goes in detailed with every single player, which is really good.

    Both are still great games, and if I was you, I would buy a copy of both if not already.

    Detroit pick up their first victory of the season 101-88 against the Celtics, pretty good victory. Rip leading the points with 27, and Chauncey scores a double double with 11 Assist and 20 points. Antonio McDyess also nearing a double double, as he fell 2 points short.

    Kobe got his first game of the season also tonight, scoring 23 points. His jersey looks so ugly now.

    Damn Gilbert Areans got a 44 point game today. Really good solid performance from him, that person who got his Jersey at the end of the game was one lucky person.
