Okay ladies and gents... it's close enough to the start of preseason and we need a new thread!
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.
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.

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 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'm paying for NBA League Pass since I've given up cable.
My 5 times to watch?
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.
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.
