My Journey to a New NBA Season

For Basketball fans, we are so glad the NBA season has started. It's not the high energy Playoffs games yet, but some games are worth watching. How about the double overtime Toronto-Houston? That was a heck of a game.

Some teams have been the surprise of the early season such as Philadelphia (many critics were saying that it would be the worse team of all this year), some of them have made a statement, like the undefeated Indiana Pacers, some others it is just business as usual, I am of course naming the Spurs who are just cruising.

How about Toronto? To tell the truth, I don't know. They have shown some good signs, but for some reasons I am still sceptical. The only positive I can see is the new General Manager. He has proven that he is the real deal. Let's wait and see.

For me, there are a few teams that I will be curious to watch. First there is Houston with Superman as their new Star, Brooklyn with Jason Kidd as a coach and the number of veterans they have now, and of course Miami who will be trying to win three championships in a roll.

For you non Basketball fans, I know that you may be sleeping by now. Be patient with me please, I will make my point very soon.

I think, the team that surprised most of the people was Boston. They got rid of most of all their Superstars and their very experienced coach. They even brough in a College Basketball coach with no NBA experience at all (So sorry Bertrand, your team will suck this year lol).

This is called rebuilding

In fact, they have done it before. After loosing many seasons (mostly for money saving), they brought in two big Superstars,  Ray Allen and Keving Garnett,  to add to the team. The same year they won a championship.

The rebuilding process can be long and painful. Doc Rivers, the coach who went through the first rebuilding a few years ago, did not want to relive the same experience this time. He is now coaching the Los Angeles Clippers. He said tha loosing so many games was so heartbreaking to live.

Don't you think that our lives sometimes need  a "rebuilding" process? As painful and long it could be, most of the times it is a necessary season so that we can be ready for the next "successful" new phase of our lives.

At least, this is the story that I daily tell myself.

Moral of the story? Do you want to start a new phase in your life? Just watch the NBA and you will get life lessons

Always a pleasure
