      And they have Dragic, just signed Isaiah Thomas, and drafted Tyler Ennis. That's a lottt of money in point guards.

      I'm beyond excited for the Celtics this year... Will they be good? Absolutely not, but they are fun to watch in this preseason! Enjoying Marcus Smart.

      Do you by chance know what E-mail I have associated with my team? So I know where to keep an eye out.

      well westbrook usually does fine without KD, hopefully the rest of the team can pick up the pieces though.

      any explanation on the cause of the break? i didn't hear anything about it yet on espn.

      I haven't heard anything about it yet either. He's out 6-8 weeks and I think they'll be okay with Westbrook at the helm until he returns, though. I'd be more worried about this injury being something that lingers. This is the same injury that one of the Lopez brothers needed surgery on like three times.

      If D. Rose stays healthy the Bulls will beat the Cavs. If he can't, Cavs win the East. Once again, a lot riding on Rose's shoulders.

      I think spurs will come out of the west again. West is stacked as always but I just see them pulling it off again.

      I'm going to enjoy (to the fullest) watching the Lakers struggle. I don't see them being a .500 team and Kobe has the franchise in a horrible position this season and next season.

      Will be interesting to see what kind of coach J Kidd turns into. I didn't think much of his coaching last season and he doesn't have much talent this season. Will be another long season for the Bucks.

      welp, Steve Nash is done for the year, and most likely forever in the NBA.

      i always liked his game and respected him, it's sad to see his great career come to an end like it has over the past couple years.

      to Steve Nash.

      should be an awesome season for Chicago. they have arguably the most talented front court in the east btwn Gasol, Noah, Gibson, & Mirotic. They also have arguably the best ten man rotation in the east.

      Will be tuff to beat them. cant wait to watch the Cavs-Bulls Rivalry rehashed.

      FINALLY, OPENING NIGHT!!!!

      I hate the break between the seasons, mainly because I have little to no interest in he marathon that is regular season baseball, and football is just ridiculous these days.

      Man I am excited for this season, lots of great story lines this year.

      I don't think it's all that realistic for them to repeat as of yet, but if they stay healthy I think they have a great chance.

      Go Spurs!

      It should be interesting. I am biased but think the suits (Ryan Mcdonough) knows what he is doing with this team. I got them in the playoffs this year.

      me being biased again... Not sure they really overpaid. From what sources said the Suns were willing to pay 48/4yrs. he got 70/5yrs.. So they paid him an extra extra 2 mil per year and extended him 1 extra year. I don't think either did too bad as long as he can remain healthy.

      Ouch, rough night for the Lakers. One game Randal is out with a broken leg!

      That being said... Wow Davis killed the magic but Vucevic was pretty dominant also.

      NBA action is FANTASTIC!!!!!

      Kemba Walker was money last night. The energy in Charlotte was awesome and I like the team they have put together. Should be an exciting season in Charlottte.

      My Bulls looked phenomenal. They were up by 30-something and Thibs was still coaching his butt off. Like i said earlier, if Rose stays heathy, Bulls going to the Finals.

      Big M, are the Knicks the Lakers of the eastern conference? Cause they look horrible.

      How much are the clippers gonna win by on Friday when they play the Lakers? 30+? Lmao

      Knicks are not the Lakers of the east. NY is in rebuild mode. LA is still in denial about the end of the Kobe era.

      Big M lol you made a funny!!!!

      Knicks played well against the Cavs, but instead of the Knicks winning that game , I think the Cavs lost it. Lebron was horrible and there was too much hype for game 1 of the season. The Knicks won and I didn't see any resemblance to the triangle offense at all lol.

      I wanted to throw something at my tv last night cause the clippers were frustrating me. Westbrook gets hurt in the 2nd quarter and the clips still couldn't pull away from the thunder. Reddick almost lost the game because he kept shooting unnecessary 3's in the final minutes. Clips bounce back tonight though and blow lakers out by 20-something.

      Plenty of triangle going on for ny last night. They broke from it occasionally, but that's ok...occasionally.

      NY won because they were clicking last night, and Cleveland is just a little too new together. It happens. NY hasn't mastered anything, but they had a good night of smart ball. Refreshing, for once

      I hope this Derrick Rose hamstring injury doesn't affect his ability to enjoy future meetings and graduations.

      If they can get a consistent (good) effort on the defensive end they'll do fine... and probably win the east since Rose will likely play every other playoff game.. j/k

      I don't doubt that Cleveland will turn it around but the poor start just makes me happy.

      i would be absolutely shocked if they dont get AT LEAST the 3rd seed. i mean come on, they are in the east...lol. they'll be fine, that starting roster has some great talent.

      big concern is really the bench. i had yet to watch a cavs game prior to the spurs. it was interesting to see the poor rotations off the bench. no way you make it to the modern day finals with your big 3 averaging 38 minutes a game.

      i am enjoying them struggle as well. we have to enjoy it while we still can. its really only a matter of time. Lebron did not look happy tonight after the Washington game. When Blatt finally pulled him out of the game with a minute and change left in the 4th and the cameras showed a close up of Lebron, you could see it in his face... "I should of stayed in Miami"

      Rose, coming out after 10 minutes against Denver:
      "It wasn't nothing like I'm limping or I pulled it or anything, it wasn't any of that," Rose said. "It was just that I wasn't moving the way I wanted to while I was on the floor. So why push through it when I wasn't able to affect the game the way I wanted to? I came in here and talked to (Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau) and we both agreed on just sitting out."

      Can't miss those future graduations and meetings. Rose is done.

      I'm not trying to defend Rose, because everytime he opens his mouth he digs himself into a deep hole but...
