I look forward to watching Ben Simmons



Kid looks real quick, agile, strong and those finishes and passes for a forward make him look like... next LeBron? :o

Hawks look horrible. We will not overtake them in the tank standings. Lakers too. Especially in the west. Best we can do is #3.

Ben Simmons is going to be a problem, however, he has to get a jumper. I believe he will get better at shooting. His vision, passing ability, speed and ball-handling for his size are :o

Only impressive thing about Simmons is his passing.

And he was guarded by rookie point guard who is 5 inches shorter than him..

It would of been fun to watch this guy maximize KP, WHG & Frank on the offensive end during this development period.

Jesus he's good. But I heard he's a statue on D. Also Simmmons has to get a jump shot to be taken seriously. So what if he can pass. NBA defenses will load up against him.

so I just moved into our first house but we are in a different cable provider zone and im pissed I don't get NBA TV. The silver package they have has MLB Network and NFL Network....but I don't think I can justify paying an extra $20-25 a month on NBA TV...probably will just have to stream out of market games on the CPU.

Laptop? I think you might need a thunderbolt to HDMI cable (I think?). I got one from Amazon a few years ago super cheap and I still have it now.

25$ a month for NBA TV? :o

Can you USA folks just set up vpn for 10 mins and get an International League pass? Its currently 120~ bucks (around 80$ for just the Knicks games) for the whole season in Latvia.

Our does this not work anymore? I've read dudes were purchasing int. LP and watching with no issues from USA past years.
