LeBron James returned to Cleve-
land, Kevin Love joined him and sud-
denly the Cavaliers had the makings
of the latest superteam.
The San Antonio Spurs are already
No big changes were necessary for
the Spurs, who simply kept the gang
together. They brought back nearly
every piece from the team that anni-
hilated James and the Miami Heat in
the NBA Finals for their fifth champi-
James set off shortly after for a new
start in his old home, where he will
renew the quest for a championship
that s eluded Cleveland s pro teams for
half a century. The Spurs today will
begin chasing about the only thing
that s escaped them in the Gregg
Popovich-Tim Duncan era: back-to-
"We know that every team is going
to come out and give us everything
they ve got," Spurs guard Danny Green
said. "We ve got a bigger target on our
chest now and that s what we want.
... We ve got to take on the challenge
and be the ultimate competitors that
Teams will be coming just as hard
at the Cavaliers, who didn t win much
more than draft lotteries after James
bolted for Miami in 2010. But they were
elevated to instant Eastern Conference
favorites when James joined Kyrie Irv-
ing, the MVP of the All-Star game and
the Basketball World Cup, and Love,
the longtime Minnesota Timberwolves
Neither of those guys has even played
in a postseason game, but inexperi-
ence---or anything else---won t work as
an excuse now that James is back in
his familiar No 23.
"It s going to be a different challenge
for them," James said. "They were so
accustomed to being the prey sneaking
up on the predator. Now it kind of
James and the Spurs could meet for
the third straight June, a familiar NBA
Finals plot with a new stage and co-
stars. But both face significant chal-
lenges just to get there.
Derrick Rose s return could lead a
running of the Bulls right to the finals.
Maybe Oklahoma City, once MVP Kevin
Durant recovers from a broken foot, or
the Los Angeles Clippers, looking to
pay back record-spending new owner
Steve Ballmer with a championship,
could stand in the Spurs way.
"I don t see it as a big question mark
in the East. LeBron and Love and Irving
will be in the Eastern Conference finals.
I think Chicago will find their way there
Rose again," ABC/ESPN analyst Jeff
Van Gundy said. "But out West, to me
there are like five teams you could say,
I could see them advancing to the
None has the continuity of the Spurs,
who brought back 14 of the players
who had confetti falling on their heads
after Game 5. They won t be in top
form for a while because of injuries,
especially NBA Finals MVP Kawhi
Leonard s eye infection, but they still
stand out even among the other top
teams in the loaded West.
"I think we re all right next to each
other---other than the Spurs," Clippers
coach Doc Rivers said. "The Spurs are
better than all of us. I don t think there s
any question about that and so we have
to catch the Spurs."
LeBron back home
Here are other things to watch
as the NBA season begins:
WILL OKC BE OK?
Durant is likely out until
December because of a broken
bone in his right foot. He carried
the Thunder through the absence
of Russell Westbrook last season,
and now Westbrook may need to
raise his game to keep Oklahoma
City among the West leaders.
Rose and Kobe Bryant are back
after knee injuries kept both
former MVPs sidelined most of last
season. Only Rose has realistic title
hopes, as Bryant's Lakers could be
headed for another rough season
after losing a franchise-record 55
games in 2013-14.
Eastern Conference finalists last
season, the Indiana Pacers lost All-
Star Paul George to a broken foot
and Lance Stephenson to Charlotte
in free agency, leaving a team that
struggled to score without its two
best offensive players. The Pacers
will still defend, but can they find
enough points to stay in the
playoff picture in an improved
Even with Steve Nash's career
possibly over because of a back
injury, there could be around a
dozen Canadians on NBA rosters,
topped by Andrew Wiggins and
Anthony Bennett, the last two No 1
overall picks who were dealt from
Cleveland to Minnesota in the Love
TAKE A BREAK:
Look for fresher players to start
the second half of the season after
the NBA extended the All-Star
break to give teams at least a
week off around the February 13-15
weekend in New York.

top as NBA returns
