The NBA tipped off Tuesday night, as the Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers and Los Angeles Lakers picked up the league’s first wins of the season. Two of those teams – the Heat and Pacers – are among many analysts’ favorites to make a run at a championship.

Bleacher Report’s lead writer for the Heat, Ethan Skolnick, appeared on SiriusXM’s Bleacher Report Radio to discuss who his favorites are to contend for the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

“There are nine or 10 teams that I think have a legitimate chance to win the championship,” Skolnick said. “There’s just a lot of story lines this year. I’m looking forward to it.”

Skolnick went on to talk about Lebron James, as well as the bad relationships between certain teams and players around the league.
