2018-19 NBA: FIRST HALF

Recommended Posts

Well, here we are again.  And once again the G*ld*n St*te W*rriors are the prohibitive favorites to win.  Oh well, try to look surprised in June when Steph Curry and Kevin Durant talk about how *this* one was the one that they EARNED.

Excited to see the new look Rockets tonight! I know everyone in town is locked in on the Astros, but I’m real excited to see the MVP and company. I’m interested to see what Melo has to offer, but essentially anything he does contribute is gravy. He’s taking the place of Ryan Anderson, and it’s not like he ever played defense either. 

I think the loss of Trevor Ariza is overstated, and I think James Ennis will mitigate any loss there. Plus, he’s younger, and I’m sure his 3% will improve with getting wide open looks and on target passes from Harden and Paul. 

Mans ... just stay healthy. The Rockets were a pulled hamstring from beating Golden State in 6. They can do it again, if they’re healthy.

Ryan Broekhoff is from the same town of about 30,000 people as I'm from. Playing his first NBA game for the Mavs today. Very surreal.

50, 28 and 8 combined for Blake and Andre. Two starters out sick, picked up the win. I'll take it.

Interesting, the DLeague is starting a "professional path" for elite prospects as an alternative to playing a year of college ball.  $125k contracts, access to NBA development programs, and the freedom to hire an agent and sign endorsement deals.  I could definitely see a lot of guys going this route, especially if the corruption trial going on now dries up some of that shoe company money that's getting spread around.

Aw, why do they want to make LaVar Ball cry?

I had genuinely not thought about Lavar in months.  Thanks for breaking my streak, jerk.

Anyway, he should probably worry about paying his own players before he starts worrying about this.

"Make" suggests he wasn't going to cry about something, somewhere, sometime anyway.

Bulls started the first quarter with 41 points and then vomited on themselves for the rest.

Joel Embiid got pretty much everything he wanted all the time.

This was funny:

The Lakers are going to be bad.   But I wonder how far LeBron can will this group of jerks in the West.

Can you really draw that conclusion from one game where they were up against the Nik Stauskas juggernaut?

All hail Jimmy Buckets, lord and ruler of Minnesota.

When Kawhi shakes the rust off.  Whew.

East is super interesting his year.  Raptors/Celtics ECF seems likely, but if Giannis ups his game in Bud's system we're talking about a 4 team race.

This excites me. It shouldn't. I'm an adult. But it does.

I like how GS almost lost a game where their MVP winners combined for 69 points to a guy named Joe Ingles. Joe Ingles should be tuning up your car, not tuning up the defending champs.

Joe Ingles is a stud and I will hear no more slander! I was sold last year during the playoffs when he put the beat down on PG while acting like a goon.

Seriously though, Ingles is legit baller.  He had a better 3p% than both Curry and KD last year.
