Well I'd say my love of basketball has been constantly growing (not necessarily because of the NBA, a lot of it comes from playing myself with my friends and in HS and now in college) with the years, so I guess logically this next one is my most highly anticipated season.
But if I had to put it in terms of off-season moves / previous seasons' results I'd agree with the lists almost everyone here posted (97', '04. '09 and so on)
"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.
