NBA Players show plenty of resolve
Basketball New Year's Resolutions
When you think New Year's you think of a packed Times Square, Dick Clark on TV, Champagne corks popping and the old standard "Auld Lang Syne."
This year NBA's getting a head start on the New Year on Nov. 2 as the Detroit Pistons will help the league ring in the "Basketball New Year." The Pistons will bring to mind last year's title when they receive their championship rings before taking on the Houston Rockets (8 p.m. ET, TNT), while the Denver Nuggets visit L.A. to take on the Lakers (10:30 p.m. ET, TNT).
As we said, a new year wouldn't be complete without the resolutions to go with them. So, we gathered some of the game's brightest stars and asked them about their resolutions for this Basketball New Year.
