In fact, it was earlier perceived that the biggest obstacle for the Cleveland Cavaliers had only involved the re-signing of Tristan Thompon. It appears, however, that the NBA team will have to contend with bigger problems this coming NBA season as star player LeBron James is still incapable of fully engaging in practices.

When the Stephen Curry squad began to beat the likes of James Harden from the Houston Rockets, Kevin Garnett from the Minnesota Timberwolves, Kevin Durant from the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kobe Bryant from the Los Angeles Lakers and Chris Paul from the Los Angeles Clippers, a storm of criticism bombarded the 2014 NBA champs. However, the intensity of the opposition of the haters and critics grew exponentially when Stephen Curry actually beat LeBron James as the Golden State Warriors won over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals basketball game.

This time around, however, the NBA team appears to be filling in the spots with young and fresh basketball stars to presumably build a winning squad from the ground up.

Hence, the Los Angeles Lakers will be expected to incorporate the NBA team's gameplays and the skills of Kobe Bryant, Roy Hibbert, D'Angelo Russell and Julius Randle this preseason period.

Kevin Durant title : Oklahoma City Thunder Kevin Durant Eye LaMarcus Aldridge, Kobe Bryant Defeat; Russell Westbrook, Dion Waiters Excited For NBA Season
summary : The Oklahoma City Thunder are entering the upcoming NBA season with incredibly strong confidence that the Kevin Durant squad could finally clinch the Western Conference title this. More than dominating the West, it looks like the strength and aggressiveness exhibited by Oklahoma City Thunder stars Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Dion Waiters are extremely promising signs in terms of unseating the Golden State Warriors and becoming the new NBA Finals champions. Although the competition in the West could turn out to be quite challenging this year, especially with the entry of LaMarcus Aldridge in the San Antonio Spurs roster and the promising performance of Rajon Rondo in the practices of the Sacramento Kings, fans and followers of the Oklahoma City Thunder squad remain confident that the return of the great Kevin Durant could spell the difference to the game plays executed by head coach Billy Donovan. Should the Oklahoma City Thunder actually emerge victorious in the Western Conference, presumably beating the likes of Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs, Rudy Gay of the Sacramento Kings, James Harden of the Houston Rockets and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers, then Kevin Durant and his squad have yet to confront basketball stars such as LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls to actually take home the NBA championship trophy. Could the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball stars do it?

Since getting the privilege of becoming the first round pick of the Chicago Bulls in 2008, Derrick Rose has been one of the most prized NBA stars in the basketball community. However, it looks like the injuries that keep cropping up in the life of the legendary Derrick Rose are not stopping anytime soon. In fact, the 2012 knee injury he incurred, wherein Derrick Rose needed to sit out a number of Chicago Bulls games in an effort to protect his physical wellbeing, is deemed to be the start of his downfall - a piece of information that has yet to be proven false by the star. In what could be described as yet another addition to the list of injuries suffered by Derrick Rose, the Chicago Bulls star fractured the orbital bone in his left eye weeks before the upcoming NBA regular season. While this news earned headshakes and disappointment from some fans and followers of the Chicago Bulls, it looks like head coach Fred Hoiberg remains optimistic on the return of Derrick Rose this NBA season.
