I was at a party Tuesday evening and the TV was tuned to the Rockets/Thunder game. Most people were pretty surprised that it was NBA time, though when I told them it was preseason they were like, "oh." Still, already? Not that I'm not excited by the Rockets this year, but either time has flown or the NBA is starting earlier.

In other news, No more East vs. West as NBA revamps All-Star Game format.

Suns trade Eric Bledsoe to Bucks for Greg Monroe, multiple draft picks

Man, it just keeps getting worse for Phoenix. I hope some of these draft picks make good. Even if they do, we're probably not looking at the Suns contending again until the 2020s. facepalm

Best,

Geoff

I saw reports of that. The Clippers are really rebuilding I guess. Is Deandre getting traded or are they keeping that piece now that Blake is out?

Most Clippers fans around here I've spoken to feel that Deandre will be eventually traded and that they'll start fresh.

Wow.

Last night, James Harden scored the first 60-point triple-double in NBA history, also breaking Calvin Murphy's single-game Rockets scoring record from 40 years ago.

The Cavaliers traded away half of the team today, and the Lakers made room in case LeBron would like to join them next year.

Best, worst and most surprising moves at a wild trade deadline

Best,

Geoff

The Rockets made no trades like other teams doing well, though they have done some signings and will have to let a player or two to make room.

Signings: Brandan Wright and Joe Johnson.
Waived: Bobby Brown, either Tarik Black, Troy Williams, or Chinanu Onuaku

I don't like losing Black, the other two haven't seen much if any court time.

The Cavaliers did seem to get younger, more athletic, and more defensive-minded. Sorry to see Clarkson and Nance go, but it's a good trade for the Lakers, particularly with respect to their contract situation. And if IT balls, is happy there, and it works out beautifully, then that's a bonus.

I havenít followed NBA since the Karl Malone era ended and the Allen Iverson era began. But I still root for the Atlanta Hawks. Do they look good this year?

I'm not really sure. I haven't watched a ton of basketball this year, in part because the Lakers haven't been very good (until lately....in the past sixteen games, they have the second best record in the NBA), I cut my cable, which had their channel, and I've been extraordinarily busy.

In the not so distant past, but after the Malone/Iverson era, the Hawks were young and athletic, and were maybe a team that might get bumped in the first or second round, but ran you up and down the court, if I recall correctly.

I became a fan when I lived in Atlanta, during the days of Dominique Wilkins, Spud Webb, Doc Rivers. They had bad teams but they were a lot of fun. And you could always score good seats at Phipps Arena, since the place was usually half-empty.

It seemed like the Mike Budenholzer era was turning them around, but they're currently dead last in the East. idk
