Man that is one of the nastiest basketball injuries I've seen. Ware's is the only one worse I can think of.

Worse than Shaun Livingston? I haven't seen it yet.

 

edit, just watched....holy shit man. idk if it was as bad as the Livingston injury but it's up there. On a positive note for Boston, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum look pretty good.

I think Denver is gonna be pretty good, but not top 3. Houston sure looks legit after beating the Warriors though.

I don't think Denver is quite ready for a top 3 seed, could see them landing somewhere between 5-8 though. After Houston's impressive comeback last night, think they showed they could be a top 3 team in the West. Still not a fan of their mentality that they will just out shoot the opponent and not worry about defense, that will eventually catch up to them. The West should be fun this season. As for the East, the C's made nice comeback last night but I can't see them or anyone else beating LeBron and the Cavs.

Jokic is a great player and Millsap is really good too. Gary Harris looks solid as well. I'm not gonna say they're the 3rd seed because thats dumb, but I'd be surprised if they miss the playoffs.

Through preseason and through three games, Drummond has been statistically better from the FT line, which has been huge.  He probably won't be that way forever, but, some improvement at the start of the season gives me hope.

Phoenix fired Earl Watson. Doesn't make much sense.

 

Then this happened.

They should of moved Bledsoe for something.  It's not too late to do so still, but it's clear he isn't happy, and they are wasting eveeryone's time.

Pistons wouldn't be a Detroit team if they didn't look good for their first couple of games before being down by 20 at the half to the 76ers...

Also Ben is such a matchup nightmare, guy just shoots over guards.

It isn't just Bledsoe, reading on the twittersphere... He didn't have the support of any of his players. He would preach at them, tried this us vs them kinda approach and they didn't give a shit. We need a coach who can develop all these young players -- and I haven't liked Bledsoe since he got here so I say good riddance to that loser when the time comes.

 

We don't have time to develop a head coach at the same time as our team.

Not sure if Fultz will get there, but Simmons and Embiid look like quite the duo if healthy.

He's hurt right now, which makes him look worse than he is, I think. But it's still going to take him years to reach his potential if he gets there.

He's also playing a new position. He went from having the ball all the time in High School and college and now he has to defer a lot to Simmons and Embiid. It's crazy how fast some people are willing to write this kid off.

So the Magic are off to a surprisingly hot 3-1 start that includes a blowout win in the King's castle. I'll enjoy this moment now until we inevitably come back down to Earth.

As much as it PAINS me to admit, Embiid owned Drummond the previous game.

But I am glad he's taking shots at Drummond. I've had it with this guy and how little he tries on defense/when the team is losing by a lot. Man's not hot. Smh
