After watching the last two seasons with all of the drama and Kiki factor, it's all pro wrestling.

The drama is an LFO controlled by the league, and the athletes are obviously pawn players playing their role. You see it when the defense stands back at certain times and lets the offense have their "pro-wrestling throw me over the rope" moments.

I'm reallocating my sports viewing portfolio -- all of my future NBA time is going 33/33/33 to MLB, NHL and NCAA BB.

"We have something up our sleeve." I hope so. It will be interesting to see if Morey can make something pan out. The Rockets were really good this season, but they need more top-level talent, and they faded down the stretch. I hate to lose Pat Beverley, but he might need to go in order for them to have room for some other top players. What interests me is that they are looking at point guards like Paul and Lowrey. Will those guys be willing to work in a system where Harden is the ball handler? idk

As far as Dwight being traded by his "home team," sigh. He's a nice guy, but it seems he can't make himself fit or be wanted anywhere despite his talents.

Nah...if we ended up buying the team the organization would dissolve into a shambles as we fought with each other over who got to call the songs played during breaks. Unless, that is, whoever contributed the most got to call the shots. In that case put me down for six-fitty.... smile

thats excellent advice . I think the Dubs might manage to lose a game or 2 just to keep it interesting. Otherwise, perfecting Hanon or new material is a good use of time smile

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

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?

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

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 haven’t 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.

Great game. Raptors came out strong and had a fifteen point lead at the half. Rockets came back and made a lot of shots in the second, got it tied right near the end, but Toronto pulled it out. Tense last moments.

Raptors are a pretty good team, especially at home. Lowry was on, JV was on, the bench was (mostly) on. Even Drake was on, he called the end of the winning streak during a TV timeout. They might actually make it out of the East this year...

I keep forgetting how well they're doing. OTOH, I don't forget about Kyle Lowry. He was great here and I'm glad to see him doing even better up north.

I would think these are some of the most wide-open playoffs in the NBA in years, no?

I'm glad Westbrook got the triple double average again. A few years ago I was not a fan of his and thought of him as a ball hog. His team loyalty sticking with Oklahoma has won me over.

It's funny because there were stories this week about him padding his rebound stats, claiming his teammates are boxing out the opposition so he can grab them. He, of course, denies it.

There are a lot of talented teams that can go far, and a couple of recent champs that have struggled this season so it will be interesting to see how far they can go.

Much better than having teammates who are trying to keep you from getting rebounds. smile

Yes indeed. Looking forward to some unpredictability—starting today!

Best,

I want to know who can stop the Sixers?

They have the most ridiculous amount of weaponry. The addition of Bellinelli and Ilyasova was key, as was Mr. Fultz becoming available. ROTY Simmons is playing lights out, as are Covington and Redick. They're killing everyone without Embiid - they should be even more formidable with him, I'd imagine.

They've had an amazing turnaround—from the worst four-year period of any team in NBA history to dominating the Heat in a Game 1 win. (Attention Phoenix Suns: here's your role model.)

While I do believe the 76ers could go all the way, since you asked who can stop them, the obvious top two candidates are the Cavaliers and ultimately, the Warriors, providing they don't get eliminated before Stephen Curry returns. Last, but possibly not least, Philly's own playoff inexperience could stop them.

Nonetheless, they are formidable opponents. You must be excited about their prospects, Dave. What a boon it would be for Philadelphia to have two championship teams in one year!

Best,

Geoff

15, but hoping the rest of the team returns for Game 2. Rockets were pretty cold from the three-point line last night. They did a lot of things right, and Harden threw them on his back and carried them the rest of the way, which was nice to have, but they can do better. If they don't, they're not going to last long.

And I keep wanting to start a pool about how long Derrick Rose stays healthy.

This Dodgers fan is rooting more for the Rockets than I was for the Astros, though—especially as a Suns fan who thought the team should never have parted ways with Mike D'Antoni. I would love to see a championship bring vindication to his system.

Geoff

Right? His system is almost everywhere now, so doesn't he deserve to actually win the championship with it himself? grin

The end of regulation between BOS and MIL yesterday was ridiculous.

Dang, I missed it. I've been trying to keep an eye on the other games when I can.
