So a game after Curry gets injured Green and Russell suddenly get injured too?

Ya right. Green and Russell are quitters.
All the rich people who probably spent god knows what on tickets for the new arena in SF. :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Warriors had a good run but it's over, they're gonna be in salary cap hell for the next four years built around a core of max players over 30.

Luka is amazing flat out. I figured he would be a good pro but nothing like this. Whole different level of player.

Found the league's replacement for LeBron.

Mavs need to make a trade for a starting level caliber SG, Seth Curry and Hardaway JR aren't going to cut it. Luka is flat out carrying games right now with some solid contribution from the bench but somewhere along the way a trade needs to get done.

Agreed. They have two, real deal pieces now, and your 100% correct. Problem is who is going to trade with them to willingly create a death star? The Mavs are going to have to give up a ton to get there.

Can you imagine that team with Beal? Steven Adams at the C spot would also be ideal, and allow porky to play his natural position as well.

Great TV to watch right now though.

Man that Spurs defeat hurt, was another close game and Lillard probably *should have made that three pointer for OT. Then the GSW demolished us as well. Not off to a flier here :/

Jesus Christ...is it too early to say that the Suns are actually GOOD????
Yes. I know that's not what Suns fan wants to hear, but they have a TON to prove.

Let's see what the record is after 25 games, which is always my my litmus test.

I would love to have Bradley Beal but the problem with Steven Adams is that I wonder if he's lost a lot of athleticism already, I watched some Thunder games last year and he looked way slower than he used to be.

I don't know if he was injured and I havent seen what he looks like this year.

Dallas needs a rebounder at the 5. I've watched every Mavs game this year, and for running opportunities that Doncic thrives on, they need a good one. A perfect fit would be Andre drummond, but not even out of my cold dead hands. ;)

Perfectly fine with that. A track record of sucking takes more than 10 games to dispel......hell, I wouldn't be confident of calling them GOOD even after 25, and I'm a Suns fan. Wanna see at least 50.

A promising start, though.

Lakers having a great start to the season. The loss against the Raptors was their fault unfortunately but right now they’re smacking Warriors

I'm nervous about Gordon missing the next month or two, but to be the best team in basketball 10 games in at 9-1 I can't complain. We actually have some really solid wins too, not just beating cupcakes like the West Coast team everybody would rather talk about. Fuck the Lakers, Go Celtics!

The Hayward injury is a real shame, dude was looking comfortable in the system and looked to have gotten over the psychological hump regarding his previous devastating injury.

Yeah he was looking great early on, hopefully with it being his off hand it won't be too much rust upon his return since he can at least stay in some good cardio shape unlike when he turned his foot backwards :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Man, painful catching up on the Blazers. Think it was 5 defeats in 6 games. Should have had the Clippers in truth. Not a fan of Dame saying we was in the game. we're sacrificing too much and hoping to come back in Q3/4. Need to pull fingers out.

Lakers #1 in the west and looking much better this season. I'm still hoping Lebron can get MVP this season and AD can get DPOY.

I'm also glad to see Melo getting another chance!

Golden State needs to get fined for this shit. Your supposed to field a professional basketball team, not the Washington Generals.


Adam Silver needs to step in and stop this shit. Play come competitive basketball ffs.

Cut'em some slack. They've lost all three of their best players from last year (2 to injury, 1 to FA), and they lost quality bench depth in Livingston and Iguodala. You take out the 3 cannons from a warship, and odds are they will suck badly.
