He retired in the offseason. He did a lot for the profile of the game in China but unfortunately he couldn't stay fit.

Dalembert isn't exactly a signing that has Rockets fans dancing in the streets but a veteran center is very welcome for Houston at this time.

@DaveC

As far as I know NBA rules suggest that the home teams wear the light colours at home. Whilst it is different to what we see in the NFL and NHL (Where the home team wears the dark colours) I like the arrangement. It is nice to watch my team's games and see the opposing teams colours.

Similar to the NFL however teams do still exploit the jersey market with some teams alternates being virtually identical from their roads. The Rockets have two road jerseys which are both predominantly red and the Celtics have three green road jerseys. I do like some alternates like the Bulls Black however.

Anybody else?

Looking forward to watching it unfold

Do you have a link for that? It might be worth my while reading up on some of these teams.

It was light jerseys for the home team last year. Sometimes the home team puts their dark alternate on but the majority of the time the home team wears their light uniforms.

Who's everyone's pick to win it all this year? I'm going for the Boston Celtics.

Short list lol. I like the Blazers and Bucks out of that. Purely because I have soft spots for them!

Oh right! Shows how much attention I paid! I did only get into the sport around the time of the all star game though.

I don't think an aging celtics roster can deal with the amount of games in a short time. I think the heat will win it. Nuggets as a dark horse due to their depth.
