The Official Offseason 2016-17 NBA Thread: Waiting for Preseason


Hopefully my Suns won’t suck too much this season. It’s been so long since we’ve played after April and I don’t know how much longer the fanbase is gonna take it before they leave altogether. I can totally picture $arver moving the Suns to Seattle just to spite the fans who boycotted the shitty product he’s put on the floor the last seven year.



We back boys.

Atlanta Hawks will win next year with Dwight Howard. Bold prediction at the beginning of the year.

This year going to be cesspool of hate for GSW. This is going to be interesting.
I don’t see a finals where GSW vs CAV. Won’t happen now. No Tim Duncan. No KD well on OKC. GSW is unchallenged in the west.
The east is free they just have the TOR and who else? Obviously the Hawks but who else?

Also KG was a great player, personality, and good teammate. Awesome career he had.


westbrook gives effort
harden does not
dont put them in the same sentence defensively

im happy for last year that the cavs won
should be a great year and now the they will have another year of experience under their belt and play more free since they brought a championship to Cleveland

hoping they go the distance again but im excited for for basketball period


East team- Pistons
West team- Spurs


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


All of them




Rose will injure his knee driving to the basket.

He will fall into Porzingas, breaking his leg.

Porzingas will fall into the backboard support, causing it to fall over and crush Noah.

Noah’s last gasp of air will be filled with the stench of his breakfast burrito and choke Lee.

As Lee struggles to breathe, he will run into Anthony, who will then fall into Spike Lee, and MSG explodes in a nuclear blast.

Knicks do not make the playoffs.


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.


The 2022 HOF class will be a must watch. Duncan, Garnett and Kobe’s speeches should all be vastly different from each other.


Uhm yay…

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


Or every time Rondo takes a jumper…


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.


You guys are lame. Today is media day around the league and this thread is dead, wtf.

Good. Now for JR Smith to sign elsewhere. Let the castle burn.


I’m depressed our best player is Loul Deng.


Yo, I really thought it was them for a second :rofl:

In other news, the Sixers looking to get in on the Esports:

As for the season, I’m most interested in seeing how the Knicks, Thunder, and Warriors end up. Those are going to be my most watched teams this yr.


In before the Sixers start tanking e-sports teams in the hopes of drafting Daigo.
