You have Isaiah Livers,how much shooting you want 😛
That's my dude.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this season. I think we can compete for a play-in spot. Probably one more season away from being a real division title contender.

If Cade can have second season similar to LaMelo last year they have some chance for a play-in.

8 teams are locked for playoff or play-in in my opinion. They need to be better than 5 of next 6 teams...Pacers,Magic,Hornets,Wizards,Knicks,Bulls. Better record than Pacers,Magic and Hornets...that sounds realistic. And now they need to be better than two of Wizards,Knicks and Bulls which is achievable. All this teams have flaws and there are no clear favourites. Still,I think they will finish 11.-12.,I don't trust Casey at all and defense is too questionable. Waiting for Casey to retire soon and take job in Pistons office and new coach to come in a year or two for this young core.

But hope is certainly there and plenty of reasons to be optimistic. They are my top 5 league pass teams this season,maybe even top 3 if Duren get a chance immediately. Pistons are fun finally.

Warriors and Celtics looking sharp.....

Bit worrying for the 76ers that they were never really in the game in the second half despite harden having a monster game....

I'm a hard sell on the Sixers this year. I don't see how anyone in the east is challenging the Celtics this year, unless the Nets magically ban together as a team.

Well Celtics don't have their coach, so they are a bit of a unknown force right now. Maybe they'll do good over the year, but will fall down in playoffs.

Apparently Giannis is mad at the disrespect, so I think they will be the main team on the east

I'm all in on Sixers for the regular season. 55+ is a real possibility.

And this is their best chance in the playoff also. Best team in years. Not sure they can do it,but time is now.

For a start,fucking Harrell should be on the bench as a third string and Paul Reed should be a backup C if you want 48 quality minutes there.

So after watching a replay of the entire pelicans nets game i m already ready to write of the Nets what a clown show....
How the hell do you come out this weak in a home season opener after the shit show you created last year and this off season?
No fight no nothing. Yes Kd is still amazing and kyrie to but this just aint gonna work... Add to that Ben simmons who still is afraid to shoot and who will now get slaughtered by the press again which wont help his weak confidence. Unless something drastic happens their gonna massively disappoint once again.

I might have underestimated the pelicans though looked really good and so did zion.

I only distrust his constant injury woes, otherwise ALWAYS TRUST Zion. He a real one.

As i said dude is done at least in any kind of high pressure environnement....
Dude should join a non contender where he can just ball with 0 expectation but his ego probably wont let that happen...
The nets with kd and kyrie there is one of the worst environnements i can think of for ben.

Kyrie screamed "shoot it, shoot it" throught the whole game. So they are trying to encourage him. Also Kyrie looked amazing this game, but Mavs just had a better game overall

Yeah realized that also the team and fans cheered a bit louder everytime he made a shot that being said you could also see the frustration when he airballed that layup.
Yes kyrie was amazing but when you get 39 from kyrie and 37 from KD and you still lose man you have a problem

Also lol lakers starting 0-5... Feel sad for russ whos gonna get most of the blame

My man Maxey going crazy. Future All-Star.

Also Paolo is looking amazing on Magic. Shame they have so many injuries and no guards but hey,maybe they will get chance to draft Scoot to complete this good young core.

Pretty much all blame on Pelinka (and owners). And they extended him. They deserve this.

Miserable season for the Lakers is great season for me.
