I would welcome him on the Raptors for putiing LeBron on his bum ass.

LeBron shouln't get a free pass for cheap shots no matter who he is.

Lowry is such a good player. He came into the game in the 3rd quarter Miami vs Detroit and completely changed the game for Miami. A Lowry type of player is what we are missing in the Raptors right now.

For hitting back and someone who took a cheap shot at him? If I'm a team I'd rather have that player than the one who runs away.

Expected the Suns to sustain last year's level in the West. I expected the Warriors to be good, but not this good, at least not until Klay came back.

they got some players that can prove their tank can go long term. Wiseman can be an impact long term big man if he stays healthy. and with the lottery talent in Kuminga and Moody long term, can prolong Curry's run as just a release value in any offense the Warriors decide to run in the next 5-6 years (Curry is 33yo). With the emergence of Poole as well, they can rest Klay, Curry, during the regular season.

Deebo better than MJ.

He is now the player who has scored the most points in his first 16 games with the Bulls in the team's history.

His 425 points passed Michael Jordan who had 424 points in his first 16 games with the team as a rookie during the 1984-85 season.

Crazy chemistry they got. Another deep playoff run I’m predicting
2019 Eastern Conference All Stars

Derozan
Lowry
Ibaka
Valanciunas
Van Vleet
Delon Wright
Lebron
Embiid

There are only 2 teams in the league that rank in the top 6 in offensive and defensive efficiency: the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.

Roughly 20 games played for all teams and the biggest surprise (though wasn't for me) is how much better the Eastern Conference has been compared to the Western Conference. Just on record alone the 9th and 10th seeds in the East are at .500 or better, while in the West only the top 6 have a .500 or better record. Even the 11th to 13th seeds are only max 3 game below. This has been the deepest I've ever seen the East in years and it's only going to get tougher as some of the 23 and under players are still growing into solid NBA players. The East will be running the NBA for the next decade at least.

To be fair, Wiseman hasn't shown anything that indicates he could be an impact long term big man. Kuminga and Moody have a ways to go. So remains to be seen how good they can become.

And as good as the Warriors have been, they have had one of the easiest schedules in the league thus far. And when I say easy, I mean comically easy. So it will be interesting to see how they do when they play better opposition.

Refs don't even hide the fact they're trying to hand Philly the win, 39-16 free throw advantage. Somehow the Sixers, with Embiid playing, still manage to lose at home to the T-Wolves. Pretty embarrassing.

sure. but I'm just basing it off of what I have seen from the young guy when he could play. he's got a lot of tools that he could work and I'm just going to sit on the positive side of things right now, seeing they are all lottery picks. it would be kinda hilarious is Jordan Poole has a better career than all three combined (I.e. their late first round pick).

Frank Vogel on the hot seat per ticker article. Probably leaked by Lebron's camp. But it's Lebron and Pelinka who put this terrible roster together for Westbrook's acquisition. Three good players to the Wizards, plus losing Caruso. And LBJ missing a lot of games. Not sure if any coach could have them playing any better with this roster.

I never understood why they didn't take advantage of Harrell in the PnR with LeBron considering he's one of the greatest passers of all time -- him & Trez could've destroyed teams or kick out or drop off to AD. That should've been one of the most unstoppable offensive schemes in the league. Then they lost arguably their 2 best perimeter defenders in Caruso & KCP, Kuzma is an ok rotation if you use him occasionally in the offence. That's alot to use for arguably THE worst decision maker in the league...

The funny thing is the 2 Finals' favorites -- Lakers & Nets both don't look good or like they're gonna make it and almost more unbelievably to me there MAY even be a Bucks/Suns repeat, although with/if he can remain healthy Klay give me the Warriors to win it all.

The other surprising thing to me, is forget about Kyrie falling off the other side of flat Earth but James Harden...idk what to make of him. Is it the rule change that changed his ability to takeover a game consistently?! Is he just not engaged because it's regular season OR that he's bit checked out without Kyrie?! Rumors have already started to float about not only Morey wanting him but that he maybe interested in heading that way too. If Nets don't make the Finals what will KD do?! What will Steph's legacy be if it turns out he's the guy from this generation that ends up with the most rings??? When you look back at this generation it's gonna be him or LeBron that you remember being in the Finals all the time -- has to have a MAJOR boost and question all time, him or KD?!

What a potential twist of fortunes for all those franchises.
