Always love your nets passion. Serious man. I love it. I will be rooting for you guys. I wish my jazz had booker back. We missed him last yr.

Booker is fun, and is a great guy in the locker room. Not sure where he fits on the team though this year. I could see both he and Lin being moved at the deadline.

The Nets have seemed to focus on having shooters or athleticism at 1-4. With RHJ, Carroll, Mozgov, and Allen all candidates to get minutes at the 4/5, I could see Booker getting some backup 4 and 5 minutes, but not starter minutes like last year. Kenny even talked about playing RHJ, who is 6'7", at Center this year in an uber small-ball lineup.

I said the same about DANgelo last year....
IDK Adam, I'm a fan of both. I think Ingram at 20 is completely unknown. Nobody can really say much about the guy except he has a high ceiling. His raw scoring skills point to potential allstar especially with Lonzo at PG getting easy looks but yes today, he is a guy who doesn't look as polished as Kuzma.

As far as D-Lo. He had some great signs early and then after the Nick Young issue their was a serious chemistry issue and lockeroom concern. So this new look in BK is a second chance for him and I expect a pretty big year for him and a ton of growth by the end of next season under a good young coach.

Not sure he has the health to live up to the hype, but Rodney hood is going to get a lot of the ball-time that Hayward had last year. He wasn't healthy most of last season, but if he is this year (likely to be a contract year), then lookout.

Also, on the same note, Dante exum and the guy everyone locally is giddy for, Donovan Mitchell should get more opportunities to really shine.

Donovan Mitchell looks NBA ready. And he plays defense.

My buddy went to the Sixers open scrimmage yesterday and says Ben Simmons looks unreal and was dominating the games without shooting.

The Sixers are going to have a real "AAU" feel to them-- and I mean that in the best way possible. Just another team that I'll have to tune in to watch on random week nights this year. My non-basketball nut friends won't get why I have to stay home and watch Sixers-Magic on a Wednesday night...

If there were ever a year to invest in League Pass, this is it

Yep, so many young and exciting teams this year. I'm really excited to watch the 76ers actually. I'll also be watching the Nuggets/TWolves this year as well

Lol, dude you can't watch Sixers Magic but i totally agree. So many teams that are a year or 2 away from making some playoff noise like Milwaukee, Minnesota, etc and so many teams that are a year or two away from the playoffs like LAL, new style teams like NOP, just a ton of stuff to look for along with a great rookie class and the best player from last year's class.

Interesting to see how this has kinda changed with D-Lo being hurt, the Lakers struggling more and Denver kinda underachieving plus losing Millsap.

Denver is struggling because Malone is a pretty bad coach. I was afraid of them losing Chris Fleming, who many said was the de-facto offensive coordinator, and it turns out he must've really done most of the work, because they look really bad right now. They get majorly outplayed every 3rd Q when the other coach is making adjustments at halftime and Malone has nothing. I'd expect them to make a change pretty soon though, wonder if they bring in Fizdale to replace him.

I love Malone as a coach. I think without Millsap them being 11-9 is kinda right where they are supposed to be. They aren't better than the Warriors, Rockets, Spurs or Blazers. They shou;dn't be better than OKC or Minnesota and they should be fighting with the teams at the bottom of the playoff fight.

They have a log jam of good but not great guards. They are soft up front without Millsap and Jokic is special but not dominant. He is kind of like a guy who can dictate the game and get you wins but not take it over. Like a much better Vlade Divac with range. If i was a Denver fan I'd consider playing some young talent more like Lyles and figurign out which guard to package and move along with Murray and Harris, Barton and Mudiay along with the 1st two is guard overload.

Today it's Oladipo... which makes sense since I sold everything last year including all his #5/xx NT RPAs and traded the Logoman Auto, lol.

This is technically his rookie season so I doubt he qualifies.

MIP currently is between Oladipo and Gordon. Those 2 guys have actually significantly improved their games whereas others are simply getting more playing time, which obviously increases stats.
