The Best Of The Basketball Season In 2009-2010

By Jack Lake

The plot in the world of basketball this season has been so twisted, so convoluted in terms of performances of some players as well as some of the news about particular players, it has made it an exciting game to follow.

I'm going to talk about the highlights of the 09-10 season. I will talk about both the good and the bad that we have seen so far.

There is just no predicting what's coming up in seasons to come. Just last season two particular teams ranked at the bottom of the league but have proven themselves successful players over the past season.

First is the Oklahoma City Thunder, a team that people believed had a bright future but never thought they would be competitive this quickly. Thanks to superstar Kevin Durant, the team has suddenly morphed from one of the worst in the league to one with a winning record this season.

Although people had a slight hunch with the Thunder, when it came to The Memphis Grizzlies, no one had ever thought that they would make it this season or any season for that matter.

Thanks to some great play from Marc Gasol, Rudy Gay, Zach Randolph, and OJ Mayo, this is a team playing some very inspired basketball. They may even make the playoffs.

On the negative side of things, there was the Gilbert Arenas incident that marred the image of the league. Having been caught in the locker room pointing a gun at the teammate, the Washington guard was suspended for the rest of the year and pleaded guilty to felony charges.

Where there are new players there is a glimpse into the future of basketball and players such as Tyreke Evans and Brandon Jennings who are two top performing rookies are providing us with hope for the future of basketball games, so it's not all bad in the world of basketball after all. - 31494
