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


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.


That definitely looks like Lebron


As a Knicks fan we don’t belong in the same manuscript as those teams


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


Preseason starts this weekend.


*meaningful basketball


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.


Kobe gonna kill MyPlayer in 2K


Wizards and Warriors are also getting in on the Esports.


Every Warriors game is basically going to be a snuff film.
