With the World Series upon us, college football reaching it's half-way point and an exciting NFL season heating up, you may not have realized that NBA is tipping off tonight. One guy who's definitely aware of this is J.E. Skeets, Yahoo! Sports NBA Blogger.

Skeets' Ball Don't Lie, a mainstay among the top blogs on BallHype's rankings, has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the 2009-10 NBA campaign. The writer who hails from Toronto has been breaking down every team, every division, every player for weeks with his previews full of insight, analysis and old-school hip-hop lyrics.

Skeets who is a part of the Yahoo! Sports NBA team that includes Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc Spears took some time out from photoshopping Mountain Dew logos on Caron Butler, digging up pics of Charles Barkley when he was skinny and dropping NBA knowledge on his readers and Twitter followers to answer our questions about the upcoming season.
