Yeah, great topic to discuss and I am pleased to comment first on the topic btw. The first few games of the season are also a wonderful opportunity to see what players have improved over the offseason. Rookies that excel right away frequently go on to have successful careers. However, the start of the season isn't pointless. What are your expectations for the upcoming NBA season?
And yes, what do you think for the Indiana Pacers vs. New York Knicks match today?
The Warriors are 16-2 WITHOUT James Wiseman and Klay... Now thats the real headline leaguewide... When I watch them I cant help but think, They've got Andrew Wiggins playing more of the position he did in HS, where he used to block a lot of shots (Looney too really)..
Otto Porter seems to be getting more comfy there too..
I root for the Magic in the east this year as an underdog. Even tho their record is putrid, I still think that team is way more fun than Orlando's rosters for a long time.
First off the Wendell Carter Jr deal will prove to be OBSCENE value.. It already is.. Jalen Suggs has shot the ball terribly so far early rookie year, thats hurt them, and Terrence Ross has shot 30% so far this year from 3 which is obviously really bad for them..
The Franz Wagner pick looks solid.. Mo Bamba looks really good, sorta right on schedule actually. RJ Hampton looks solid!
If Chris Paul ends this season around 11k at 37 years old. Long as he can keep this type of performance up for 3 more seasons the record will increasingly become breakable if he stays healthy and Brett Favre's it.
