I am surprised none of the frequent posters of this thread mentioned it. Bill Russell passed away at the age of 88. R.I.P. Legend

I'm excited for the Magic,think they might be the next in few years.Cole-Suggs-Franz-Isaac-WCJ with Fultz,Okeke and first round pick this year off the bench.This is fucking awesome young core capable of playing sick defence.Just praying that Isaac will be the same defensive force when he is back.

Oklahoma with Giddey-SGA-Dort core if they can draft Chet or Paolo are also team to follow.
Magic with Paolo and OKC with Chet 🔥 That Franz-Paolo-WCJ combination is going to be so sick. New season could not come fast enough.

Memphis-Magic-Pistons-OKC-Hornets probably my top 5 league pass teams. Memphis are my favourite team to watch for last 4 years and It will stay that way,Magic cause they are building something similar like Memphis and could surprise lot of people this season,Pistons cause of Cade-Ivey-Duren great young core,OKC cause of SGA-Giddey-Chet combination and Hornets because LaMelo is simply must watch. When guys like Wesley,Sochan and Branham get a chance I will probably replace Spurs with Hornets cause Clifford will mess them up most likely.
I watched my first ever full NBA game a few days ago, which was Nets vs Celtics 1. I thought it was a cool game, but all those timeouts sure are annoying. How do you fellow Europeans follow the sport regularly? The reason I was able to watch was because the game started at 9pm or so, but the vast majority of the games are between 2am and 4am
Just watch replays this season. Replays in the morning or after the work. Priceless. Experience is at least 10 times better.No timeouts,no bullshit.I'm watching max 5-10 games live through the season,most of them around Christmas.
Insane if true. Brown night be better than Durant at this point.
He is not. I would trade Brown + picks in a heartbeat If I could get Durant. Not sure I'm giving Smart in that package and that deal collapsed I think exactly cause of that part.

I'd gamble on Durant if he was 30, but not now, not for Brown and def not for Smart.

I think that Boston is not sure that Brown will extend so it's a good time to trade him if player like Durant is available.

LOL what a clown show..
Drama is gonna continue 100% especially if that clown Kyrie stays around, dude causes drama everywhere and Durant has clearly shown that he s not capable or willing to rein him in.
Like how are they gonna get over what ever their first hardship is gonna be? Nash knows Durant and Kyrie asked for him to be fired....
They re gonna start pointing fingers the moment shit hits the fan.
Also they have what probably is the mentaly weakest player in all of the NBA and he ll be asked to perform in the highest pressure atmosphere not sure thats gonna work out and i think they need ben to win.

Edit: this is not a critique on the nets or tsai it probably is their best option if they wanna win in the near term, and seeing as they did not really get any good offers it probably was the best way forward for the franchise.
I personally just dont think they ll win anything

Chet 😭 So unlucky. But another high pick is coming.

Giannis was too much for us today. That second block at the end of the game was insane.

I don't watch the games, don't have the time really, but American friends are apparently watching games and are hyped for different type of basketball. Also there was a funny minute in CRO-GRE where no team could score :) classic

Same i guess having 3 MVP (2 former MVPs) candidates compete in the euros has lifted interest a lot...
I mean they even talk about it now in their dumb little sports talk shows like first take

Couldn't watch the game but I heard about that. Will check the extended highlights tomorrow, along with the Italy game tonight that I also probably will miss.


Eurobasket is usually a great tournament but I feel like the level of talent across the board isn't improving. Some bigger names because they have an impact in the NBA but there's a serious lack of depth for most sides. Probably France, Spain and Serbia have the deepest sides. Greece is average without Giannis and not sure if the team can tick around him (we lack shooters) but I trust my guy Itoudis.

I think this says more about how bad the state of the NBA is rather than how great the European game has become. Give me back the mid 80 to mid 00s Eurobasket. At least 4 stacked teams and lots of surprises.


I also don't like the way they're hosting these now. It reduces its importance when you have four hosts. I mean Cyprus is co-hosting the next one and only two arenas hold 5k at best. And the one they picked doesn't even have a separation for fans. I guess they'll somehow rig it so that Greece and Cyprus get to play there so that it's filled up because I cannot see more than 1,000 gathering to watch a random game between Montenegro and Hungary unless it's free or forced upon fans with a ticket of another game.
