Seriously - it's probably more than I pay for Sky Sport over the same period.

Nope. I never really got the hype from the start.

...but if preseason is any indication we'll push the pace to breaking point and, as a result, set new records for turnovers and lose 138-125

Nice win for the Pelicans last night. Almost hoping for the Kings to lose at this point so that incompetent Vlade gets shown the door well before the trade deadline.

I'm not sure if I'm underrating the Hornets or overrating the Bucks. Personally I thought the latter leapfrogged the Pacers (though I'm pretty sure Indy's better than the Sixers), but they were a Batum brick from going down last night. Of course, we are literally one game into the season...

I think:
Celtics
Raptors
Bucks
Pacers
Sixers
Wizards
Heat
Cavs
-----
Pistons/Hornets/Magic

and...

Warriors
Jazz
Pelicans
Rockets
Thunder
Spurs
Lakers
Nuggets
-----
Wolves (w/ Butler)/Blazers

Not sure where to put this but I think the Suns will be a lot better than people expect (like 35-38 wins), they would have a decent chance of playoffs if they were in the East. Maybe same for Mavs.

Don't think the Rockets got better at all (does anyone?)

Pops will find a way to get the Spurs in...they'd be locks with Dejounte but they still have two all-stars and, of course, some good role players.

Not really on the Nugs hype train but they should get in. Not sure why I left out the Blazers but even though they were the three seed last year, if they had lost three more games they wouldn't even have been in the playoffs. That's the West for you.

East pretty much picks itself. Don't think the Sixers got any better either. And everyone seems to think the Cavs are going to win like 25-30 games but I think they'll be fine, all things considered. Plus I don't really see any teams that didn't make the playoffs last year really stepping forward. Maybe the Pistons.

Lebron starts his Lakers career with a big dunk, little to no defense in the 4th and a loss.More or less the same thing he has done with all his teams.

Yeah - LeBron sucks! :uhoh:

Lakers came into the season with no shooting, and it kinda hurt in this one...

Bron will be texting Korver as I type.

Walton working out lineups.

My favourite was Rondo-Lonzo-Hart-Lance-Kuzma. Got swatted by Collins for fun. :lol:

No one says he sucks. It's more amusement at the Hype. I do believe he needs time at his teams, he always loses his first game.

Oh... I get ya.

The hype overshadowed Paul Allen's tribute, which was disappointing.

I'm happy the Blazers won.

Raps v. Cs just started. Should be a good one!

40 point first quarter. This team is so fun to watch


AD told the media this week LSU and the Saints aren't playing so he better see a packed house :uhoh: :( x(


Edit: so it's apparently a sell out... but there's so many empty seats out there, all game long now deep into the 3rd. They're all in the free beer garden watching high school football

Remember when Paul Pierce said Niko couldn't have back to back 30 point games :lol:

He was visibly frustrated the other night when they had to traffic their "AD trade packages" halftime bit that they teased pre-game. Eat a million dicks you cunt, and that smirking prick Jalen Rose

Damn!! Get wrecked Kangz :D (sorry Goey)



They're shit, but remember last year when we'd struggle so hard to beat the shit teams (lost twice to the Kings at home ffs!)

Two complete obliterations to start the season!!!

And AD and Jrue only had to play 26 minutes :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

This is more like it!


Edit: Oh and I see the Celtics lost! Someone check on Paul Pierce

Well they are a true pack of lying cunts at ESPN and they're barely hiding their "get him out of that little low-ratings market" agenda these days

Add Stephen A Smith to that list. He claimed on Hot Take that his sources tell him AD wants out and will demand a trade at the end of the season. This fukwit has no sources. Then he made a big show of laughing at the name of the Pelicans arena, saying no one can win MVP playing 41 games there. He's doing his bombastic trolling schtick but it all gets fuking tiresome

If Woj or Shams or Bobby Marks aren't reporting it, then it's made up clcikbait horseshite PERIOD!

And that article ESPN published during the playoffs about how AD is only appreciated by the national media but is the most underappreciated star by his own city because they ONLY sent 5 media outlets to cover the playoffs :uhoh: They blatantly failed to mention that this is every single media outlet that the city of 393k has! And left out all the media credentialed bloggers who actually have the biggest audience anyway. They got it wrong and issued a correction later but left it misleading. What a bunch of fucking hacks


Give me Ernie, Shaq, Chuck (and maybe Kenny, I guess) on TNT all day over these ESPN fuks

Image Seriously tho








Edit: But I'll keep watching because they do still have actual quality analysis

Also here's a good youtube channel if you want daily 2-minute wrap-ups of each game (he's usually pretty onto it at this time of the night)

Paul Pierce is the Thunder offense of NBA pundits. Clueless and embarrassing.

Not sure I've heard a dumber fuck on the air. He's consistently dreadful.

Anyway, Thunder 0-2, as I expected them to be (as did Vegas). PG and Schröder taking awful shot after awful shot made my eyes bleed. Thankfully I'm still on the high that Auckland gave me - so I'll survive - assuming Russ gets back soon (the next game, please!), and doesn't look too rusty.

I decided to watch the first half of the Clips-Thunder game instead of Jazz-Dubs

... I made a huge mistake

Beat me to it, Tehui!

Rondo v. CP3

Good stuff!

Ingram with that long reach of his may have connected with CP3 as well!

Madness.

He is a bitch.

Always has been.

Rondo would have knocked him the fuck out, given the chance.

He's a joy to watch.

I've got the Nuggets at 4th in my WC standings. It's finally their year!
