    Tyler Bey is a bit like a poor man's Shawn Marion. Terrific athlete and a terrific all around defender. Not a good shooter though. But I could see playing at PF with Porzingis at C and Luka at SF.

    Josh Green is a young Aussie kid who was at Arizona. Great athlete again, loves playing D and can knock down threes.

    Tyrell Terry is a kid I absolutely love. Not very athletic, but IQ off the charts and a lights out shooter.

    Would you compare him to the Herro kid at Miami?

    You've got me slightly more excited for the year!  ;-)

    Herro is bigger though, SG size. This Terry kid is much smaller and slightly built, but yeah I would say their skillsets are otherwise comparable.

    Klay has suffered an Achilles injury. Out for the season again. Poor guy, he's a really good dude, and I feel for him.

    Fuck the Warriors though.

    I didn't realize how 'old' Klay/Steph/Green were ... 31/33/31 I think.
    I think this injury basically ends the idea of them making a few more plays at a title.

    He is easily the most likable of all their stars to me, like you said fuck the Warriors, just a shame these injuries are not happened to Draymond.

    Dallas will finish top 4 in the West I bet, they have the makings of a good young team. Doncic is a true superstar, and that is always the hardest piece to get in the NBA.

    And your secret weapon as always is Mr. Jim Carrey, second best coach in the league by a country mile.

    Took him a few months to get 'doncic' two years ...
    Yah he's quite brilliant but I'm a bit surprised he's happy to stay for so long ...

    Its a pretty good job, as far as general NBA spots, solid ownership that will spend and in a good market.

    I'm not sure I would want to work for or with Mark Cuban myself, but that is just from the outside looking in.

    Was surprised Hayword opted out with Boston and signed with the Hornets.  

    I figured he would want to stay on a team with a decent shot at winning something soon, as opposed to the bigger contract.

    And of course the Michael Jordan of bad owners, Michael Jordan, overpaid for him.

    Ha!  I did steal it, but I originally heard from a caller or texter on the Jim Rome radio show some years ago.

    Westbrook traded for John Wall. Looks like Harden might be out of the door soon too.

    Don't get that trade for the Wiz - they're building a good team.  Is Westbrook the way to keep Beal happy?
    The one thing is for sure is that with Russ, they'll get into the playoffs - which is I guess a positive step.

    If Harden goes to the Nets, he's an idiot.

    Well, having Westbrook is better than having an injured John Wall on the books for another 2 years. Westbrook and Beal should get you to the playoffs and they have some interesting youngsters now with Hachimura and Avdija.

    What are the Rockets doing now? I expect they are waiting for Philly to make an offer for Harden with a Simmons package.

    Rockets can built a really good team around Simmons - kinda like the Mavs with Doncic.  Get him shooters and let him do his shit.

    Regular season starting tomorrow, anyone care to make predictions on how things will turn out?  Something we can use to make fun of each other when they go incredibly wrong.

    How about conference champions and NBA Finals winner?  Anything else?

    I think It will be Brooklyn vs LA CLippers in the finals, with the Clippers taking it all.

    I'll (unfortunately) be surprised if LeBroners don't win it again - they've got a better team than last year.

    GSW will be dangerous as long as Steph is healthy ...

    Rookie of the year will be Avidja from preseason I've seen.

    Brooklyn should be the best team in the East ...

    Mavs should get to conference finals.

    Don't sleep on the Ball kid. I watched some Hornets highlights and the boy can play. Opponents do target him in defence though. He's got a lot of work to do.

    he's got great court vision - could average 5-7 dimes a game, but his shooting is as poor as his brother's.
    He was a poor shooter in Oz ... i'll be impressed if he gets to 15ppg.
