2019-20 NBA: 1st Half

Recommended Posts

Tomorrow is opening night already! 

Looks like the favorites are the Clippers? That can't be right....

Oh, and the Heat found a SF (and SG!) who can shoot the lights out of the building and ISN'T batshit insane.  So Dion Waiters this news is taking this news well:

Waiters has been suspended for the Heat's opener vs. Memphis.

Zion had surgery on his torn meniscus and will be out 6-8 weeks, so that sucks.

Jaylen Brown, Buddy Hield, and Domantas Sabonis all got max extensions.

Get the feeling the words surgery and Zion will go hand in hand until he retires

Steve Kerr says Klay Thompson likely won't be back this year, as per 4 letter. . . Not a huge shock there. . .

Michael Jordan saying that Steph Curry hasn't done enough to be a Hall of Famer explains a lot about his ability to identify talent...The Charlotte Hornets roster backs up this hypothesis.

Have you ever wanted to hear Arnold say "what it do, baby?" 

I love this so much.

Had the games on while I was working tonight. Great night of basketball. Glad to see the Clippers win and good to see the Pels hang without Zion. 

I'm going to the Pistons home opener on Tuesday! Will report. Fucking STOKED.

Let's see how long it takes before Dion has to be edited out.

Luka vs Beal was the most random #heatedbattle that I've seen in a while.

Astros are fun and all but Rockets season starts tonight!  Basketball Lawful Metal is back!  Time to besmirch that fraud MVP Giannis.  All he does is travel and shoot free throws.  In a perfect world, Russ will be on the floor whenever Harden's not, and their interactions together should be mostly limited.  Please don't take too many threes Russ.  I'm trying here.

So the Kings were going be one of my League Pass teams after hearing about how exciting they were last year. One game of Luke Walton coaching and that idea is dead. Slow paced with next to no ball movement. Funny to look back and think of how high everyone was on Luke Walton after the season that Kerr was out for the most of it.

May I recommend the Bulls? They are playing a more free form style, and most of all, they only have 2 above average defensive players on there roster. Should be high scoring as hell.

I shall give them a look. Outside of listening to Wendell Carter on the Right Time with Bomani Jones, I think the last time I really heard anything about the Bulls was the whole fiasco when Jim Boylen took over.

Zach Lowe wrote an article about two weeks ago ranking teams for League Pass viewing. He had the Bulls at 8. I'm on the Bucks and Jazz bandwagons again this year. I adore Utah's offseason. Milwaukee's, not so much, but they still have the pieces to be the best or second best team in the East.

Disgusting. I think they called 5 offensive fouls on Harden. None of them even close. Russ had a good game. When Ilyasova and Connaughton can’t miss it’s hard. Considering how bad Harden was shooting for the game to be that close against the best regular season team it shouldn’t have been that close. 
 

also Gordon shot like shit. He was a -22! That’s not likely to happen again.

I know, right?  It's like you can't even wildly flail your arms into defenders without people getting all pissy anymore. 

I blame rock music.

This so describes Giannis's drives to the basket.

Finally went through the Bulls's opener. 

The team can certainly be exciting and the scoring output was high. Lauri only hit one 3 but he still managed to score 35. I was kind of surprised at how much he was able to drive. It was a skill he had but everyone wanted him to be a spot up assassin. Apparently he worked on driving to the hoop even more and added a drag step that has been giving people problems. He's also bulked up significantly over the last two years and it paid off down low with 17 rebounds. Really excited about his potential this year.

I think this squad could be pretty fun this year. We might finally be out of the gutter. The defense was absolutely TRASH, which I know will drive me up the fucking wall, but I might not be completely miserable.

Jimmy Butler missed Game 1 due to "personal reasons".   I think he's about to miss Game 2 also:
