The new NBA season has started last night.

I must admit that I really like Dirk Nowitzki's playing style, not because he's German, but probably because I am German and Dirk certainly gets more TV coverage than any other player here.

TV coverage in Germany has become worse over the past few years. While I was able to watch a couple of games live in free TV even through regular season just a few years ago, now even the finals are only covered on Pay-TV here - or with a few days delay. But still I'm looking forward to this season.

Last night's results indicate that the new Mavericks will need a little more time to learn how to play together while the veterans playing for the new Lakers simply know how to do so.
