Welcome to “Pretty Much Screwed,” our definitive guide to the upcoming NBA season. This team-by-team preview details why it’s probably not your favorite team’s year.

Hard to tell what’s going on here, exactly: there’s the woman in pink, a blonde sitting a row behind and a security official at the Hawks-Magic game on Saturday night.

When she makes her initial approach with the tiny, tiny, spoon, she gets the old cone sidestep. Not in this bro’s house, lady. But c’mon, ice cream bro. Look at that spoon! It’s miniature. The most she can scoop is .08% of your ice cream. You gotta share, if only not to incur girl(friend) wrath.
Dwight Howard must have discovered a select few Magic fans whose hearts he hadn’t yet broken. People who clung to the notion that Superman’s best days were in the past, with them. Well, they had one thing right: he kicks ass at basketball when he plays in Orlando.
LeBron James Finally Hit His First Go-Ahead Basket With Less Than 10 Seconds Left In A Game Since Joining The Heat
It took him almost three years (and nine failed tries), but LeBron James has finally flashed some clutch prowess in South Beach. With their 15-game winning streak in danger of ending at the hands of the lowly Orlando Magic, down 96-95 James hit a layup with 3.2 seconds left, putting the Heat up for good, 97-96.
