Tune in for excitement but

Don’t watch for wins, yeah?

But no bench at all

Phoenix Suns

Lost on LaMarcus

And rebuilding but to where?

Add angry Morri

Twilight of the Dirk

San Antonio Spurs

LaMarcus unfair

Transition to new era

This year is step back


Memphis Grizzlies

Grit-n-grind core safe

Bench gets a younger facelift

Still need outside shots

Much to replace now

But someone might roll

Houston Rockets

Gunning for top spot

Increased weapon options

But still lot of holes

Golden State Warriors

Great chance at repeat

Curry owns court and the ground

Beneath. Pray for health.
