Boston Celtics all the way like last year.

And as for Olympic and internationals, I would route for Ireland, but their basketball team is hardly worth following.

that was not really true
But Murray has played very well in his last match, and now he should have a good test against the spaniard Verdasco

I'm happy to not listening the tournament with BBC, I follow him with ESPN

Well i like the Houston Rockets because i live in Houston for a long time and it's like home for me pretty much. I dont know any international teams because i never bother to watch them except for olympics.
