    ESPN ranked the Suns the worst franchise in the NBA and 3rd-worst franchise in all of American sports. I admit things are not good right now, but that seems a little bit harsh?

    The Knicks are ranked 2nd worst and the Lakers 5th worst. Even with the massive amounts of problems that both teams have you could never convince me that the Nuggets, Wizards and Pelicans are better franchises and thats just to name a few.

    I don't either but it is what is. I'm just wondering what's going to happen when the team starts 5-25 this season the schedule is brutal the first 20 game and this team isn't good at all.

    Probably not much, Ingram could log in starter minutes. Zubac would get playing time if he isn't already in the D League. I'd trust Clarkson to run the show more than Russell at this point. I'm not even sure why they have Lou Williams starting all these games, he's a terrible defender and is undersized at the position. The Mavs tried to do this with Jason Terry a few years ago, it doesn't work.

    I kept telling people that Yi signing was pointless. He fits nowhere in Luke Waltons offense schemes, anything he can do somebody else can do better. He's better off going back to China and dominating there again.

    lakers have been trying to pry him over for years... probably because of the chinese market alone.

    yi held off... probably waiting until kobe retired and he could actually play the game. and with all the youth he would have the chance to really step up.

    then walton comes in...

    i don't think yi fits poorly, but yi to lakers was really two sides who wanted to hook up because of business opportunities, but they chose a coach who actually wants to play basketball as his focus instead of padding the lakers pocketbook. yi could stretch, could play d, could contribute positively... but the youth movement + the ambitious amount invested in mosgov, it just won't give Yi what he wants: to be a star player... but the team would rather focus on development and finding itself.

    Doesn't the CBA pay more than the NBA though?

    No basketball league comes close to paying the same as the NBA, let alone more.

    In twenty minutes, Carmelo and David Blatt will have to watch JR and Shumpert get rings before him. Sodium levels will be at an all time high.

    He cursed himself. Adidas' history can't be avoided.

    And btw, Cavs mailed a ring to Blatt.

    People on Twitter said Barkley said Klay is the second best player in the world?

    I'm chalking it all up to being the first game (and that dumb hoe who tried to extort my nigga D.Rose).
    This 2nd unit scares me though, but I like Jennings and Holiday.

    Damn, I love watching Rose work.
