Hopefully we can keep this as a continuous thread. They have worked well the past several years.

Hornets just tied the Bucks midway through the 4th. Kemba looks awesome with 36 so far. If Parker actually has a pulse, which he seems to, Kemba is going to have a much easier existence being able to play off the ball a bit. Giannis looks like he is going to put up 20-20-10 as the trendy MVP pick.

I really think the Raptors are going to be the clear cut #2 team in the NBA this year with a legit chance versus the Dubs. My only reservation was Kawhi's health and he looks good as new. That 2nd unit is just silly good and their defense is going to be suffocating.

I'll take the Celts. Deeper than Chicago pizza.

The Raptors are actually deeper in terms of having overall plus NBA players but the Celtics are unparalleled in those 3-7 spots. The two best benches for sure.

Bucks off to a good start, although the Pacers may just be a mediocre team that overachieved last year.

Kemba has looked amazing.

Pelicans GM looks like a genius. In the last year, he signed Randle for $4.6 million, and traded for Nikola Mirotic for a guy that the Bulls are buying out so they can dump him.

If he can't get AD to sign long term then he will probably get fired.

Who do ya'll think was the real villian of the Rondo/CP3/Ingram debacle?

Ingram shoved and punched people for basically no reason. Very odd.

Rondo spit on CP3 and threw the first punch.

CP3 poked a dude in the eye.

Is there a more ridiculous sequence of events possible?

I think Ingram just stood up for his teammates in his sort of way.

CP3 was weak for poking him in the eye, shoulda just punched him.

But id say Rondo, for spitting. Thats disrespectful and weak.

That doesn't make it any less impressive that New Orleans has gotten a solid starter at center and a candidate for 6th man of the year in return for almost nothing.

New Orleans can offer a Super Max, and no one else can, so they are in good shape on the new contract.

Can't imagine how lebron must feel on this team. A veteran professional focusing on prolonging his career--dealing with Rondo, McGhee, ingram and Stevenson every day. Good grief.

Looks like 4, 3, 2 game suspensions. Ingram 4, Rondo 3, Paul 2

I mean we are talking about 2 games into an 82 game season.
