NBA Haikus - 2011-2012 Season Preview - The Southwest Division

It’s going to be a short season after an even shorter off-season. We had limited time to track player movement, team development and bring you in depth team analysis, like we did last year. So the bros and bro-ettes at NBAO decided we’ll follow in the footsteps of the NBA and provide you with abbreviated team previews in the best way possible, haikus.

Our last installment of NBA Haikus is dedicated to the Western Conference’s Southwest Division. Divorces, drama, veto’d trades, new coaches, suspensions, injuries, more trade talk, and that’s just the Los Angeles Lakers. Will the Lobs Angeles Clippers finally break their curse? Welcome to the Reality TV Division. 

Western Conference - Southwest Division:

Dallas Mavericks:
Dirk saves legacy
Cuban steals the Candyman
Khloe does Dallas
__________

Houston Rockets:
Gasol trade falls through
Still no big men! McHale asks
“Can we sign Joe Smith?”
__________ 

Memphis Grizzlies:
See, the thing about
Darrell Arthur’s Achilles:
Memphis still has swag!
__________

New Orleans Hornets:
Meditate Dell Demps
Find peace and center your Chi
Basketball reasons
__________

San Antonio Spurs:
Time is a factor
Tim is on his final run
A great run it’s been

NBA Haikus - 2011-2012 Season Preview - The Northwest Division

It’s going to be a short season after an even shorter off-season. We had limited time to track player movement, team development and bring you in depth team analysis, like we did last year. So the bros and bro-ettes at NBAO decided we’ll follow in the footsteps of the NBA and provide you with abbreviated team previews in the best way possible, haikus.

Our fourth installment of NBA Haikus is dedicated to the Western Conference’s Northwest Division. We will all miss Brandon Roy but this is probably the funnest division in basketball. Minny’s Rubio and Love connection, Portland’s plug-and-play roster, Denver’s gang of unknowns and OKC’s young bloods. My prediction? Thunder up!

Western Conference - Northwest Division:


Denver Nuggets:
Aaron Afflalo
Denver will make the playoffs
Still miss JR Smith
__________

Minnesota Timberwolves:
Skinny Kevin Love
Rambis out, Adelman in
Go Rubio, go!
__________  

Oklahoma City Thunder:
Dunks, blocks, wins and beards
Durant’s third scoring title
Trip to the Finals
__________ 

Portland Trail Blazers:
Brandon Roy is gone
Oden forever injured
Sad trombone, Rip City
__________ 

Utah Jazz:
It’s hard to look good
in fancy new uniforms
with latent talent

Add a great scorer 
His name, Tracy McGrady 
A decade too late

NBA Haikus - 2011-2012 Season Preview - The Central Division

It’s going to be a short season after an even shorter off-season. We had limited time to track player movement, team development and bring you in depth team analysis, like we did last year. So the bros and bro-ettes at NBAO decided we’ll follow in the footsteps of the NBA and provide you with abbreviated team previews in the best way possible, haikus.

Our second installment of NBA Haikus is dedicated to the Eastern Conference’s Central Division. A division that seems to be heading towards mediocrity, given the aging Celtics, the lack of depth of the Knicks, uncertainty of the Nets and the permanent stench of the Raptors.

Eastern Conference - Atlantic Division:


Chicago Bulls:
Sign Rip Hamilton
A two guard ghost protocol
The ghost is MJ
__________ 

Cleveland Cavaliers: 
Brad’s hot in Cleveland
Trade LeBron to New Orleans
Angry emails work
__________  

Detroit Pistons:
The perfect roster
for making a playoff run
in the FIBA league
__________  

Indiana Pacers:
Welcome back, Foster
Conseco, not Canseco
An eighth seed awaits
__________

StackJack in Wisco
Like orange juice with corn flakes
Offbeat, yet tasty

Boston Celtics:
A bad trade gets worse
Clippers’ pick and Green, useless
Pull the plug, Danny

Need a center, bad
Drop point guard for a center
Need a point guard, bad

A calm Doug Collins
Mediocrity lives here
No sun for Philly

Toronto Raptors:
If Dwane Casey can
Make Toronto play defense
Ed Davis will shine
