    So which Knicks player will get injured and miss the rest of the season first?

    Knicks going be that team with hype and end up in Eastern Finals to lose to Lebron.
    I predict them to go far though. Nevermind they get beat by the Hawks before that.

    Half the Knicks team gonna be on IR before February. East still small potatoes... Lebron casually walks into the Finals again.

    Uhm yay....

    I still cringe whenever I think wade and rondo can work together.

    Rondo's jumper ain't that bad anymore.

    It's the "I'm not passing you the ball unless I can get an assist" style of play is more of the issue....

    Welp, Pierce announced his retirement. This will be his last year.

    Sheesh. What a summer.

    Media day has always been kinda "eh" to me. Pics get taken... Reporters asking the same questions we been hearing all summer.. Only this time they are asking them in person.. The players giving the same canned stereotypical answers to them... We still don't get to see any basketball be physically played for another month.. It's a damn tease ..plus the Grizz always get shitted on.. No coverage

    *meaningful basketball
  • GeoG2GeoG2 I came for the culo Joined: Posts: 12,139 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Technically, meaningful basketball doesn't start until April. Nobody even worries about playoff seeding for 2-3 months.

    Basketball is basketball, preseason or not. If you care about a team, you're going to want to see what is different about players.

    I care about my team just fine, but preseason games are boring. I want to see the starters without restrictions and the bench in thier realistic roles. i watch the whole regular season it is important to me. I'll see how the players have progressed once the grind of the season gets underway..consistency is what I want.. A few preseason games don't show you that

    If Popovich plays all the starters, then it's a meaningful game.

    Wizards and Warriors are also getting in on the Esports.

    I don't think the Warriors are going to be as good as last season. Where is their rim protection?
  • PsychobluePsychoblue the Conductor of the Hype Train Joined: Posts: 2,946
    I also feel like the Warriors could potentially disappoint. There's a lot of talent but we've seen teams in the past with this much superstar talent fall short.
  • GeoG2GeoG2 I came for the culo Joined: Posts: 12,139 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    There's never been a team with this much talent. 2 of the top 3 players in the league + best shooting backcourt of all time + a guy who was second in votes for Defensive Player of the Year. Let's get real.

    As far as rim protection, tbey have Javale McGee.

    Yeah but Lebron is still the father to all of them.

    I don't like their bench depth this season, losing Barbosa hurts a lot. David West is 36 years old, Varejao hasn't been the same since injuries, and Ian Clark is unproven. Andre Iguodala will be asked to do much more for the Warriors than in his previous seasons, and he's turning older which is why we heard rumors of them flirting with a shumpert swap

    West never relied on athleticism, his age hasn't affected his game. There will always be a starter in the game, they won't play like the last 2 years where the entire bench subbed in. And they still have Livingston, their most impactful sub because of his height advantage.

    People been trying to come up with reasons all summer for why the team won't be as good as predicted, and it just ain't working.

    LeBron is salivating at the prospect of shitting on this super team. He barely beat these dudes last year.

    I don't think he can again honestly. I see 2 years of GSW winning everything at least.

    Durant historically has been owned by LeBron but with this stacked team KD will finally feel like he's getting his. I think that was a huge factor in joining GSW, to finally get back at LBJ even if he had to stack the deck in his favor.

    Malone was 40 and played for half the season. From what I remember, Payton was a shell of his former self. I don't really think 04 Lakers and this year's Warriors is a good comparison.
    Why bring logic to a discussion?
  • GeoG2GeoG2 I came for the culo Joined: Posts: 12,139 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Comparing that Lakers team to this Warriors team is a joke. 2 stars and 2 washed players on the brink of retirement compared to 4 stars in their prime (with 2 MVP caliber players).

    You would have to go back to Wilt/Jerry Lakers or some other 60s/70s stacked team to find something like this year's Warriors.

    Out of the top 10 shot blockers last season, only 4 of them made the playoffs. Rim protection doesn't mean much anymore. Everybody is shooting outside shots.

    I honestly don't like the dubs expectations. I liked it when we were still underdogs, like back in 2012 draft lmao. It was sad but Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry were considered good, and DLee was our top PF who couldn't move lateral or play D. Now we're some mega team that's still hard to fathom. People just want us to burn now.

    This might be the first time the Sixers will actually attempt to be competitive in a long time. Everybody is healthy, they have vets like Jerryd Bayless and Gerald Henderson, and Simmons will make everyone better with his passing.

    I agree not a good chance for the Cavs to repeat. GSW is way too strong.

    The Hawks will sweep the GSW in the finals but otherwise GSW is unstoppable.
