    Get the feeling that NCAA rule is going to start a movement in the NBA. Rich Paul is going to be the Scott Boras of the NBA.

    More power to the people, I say. Let the high schoolers in! Let the players dictate where they want to play! I don't care. This offseason has been crazy and fun. Even the AD drama was entertaining, with him being such a dope.

    Boogie tore his ACL.

    I feel bad for Boogie (even though he turned down 2 years $40 million from New Orleans and then told everyone he signed with Golden State because he had no offers), but happy that the Lakers lost a key starter from an already thin roster.

    This guy had a torn quad and came back early for the finals.. torn achilles... and now torn acl... KD better make sure he is truly 150% before he bounces back on the court. You cant jump in there at 80% after a major injury, youre not moving the same and you start to use one leg more dominantly than the other and you put yourself at risk.

    There is no defense to what he said on the video and his personality that we all know of him as a public figure doesnt help his case at all.... this should humble his dumbass...

    Tanking just isn’t gonna happen with Riley. I’ll just enjoy watching Jimmy and Tyler Buckets be competitive and Tyler and Justise develop.

    With the level of tanking we have ahead of us in the dolphins, I’m happy we don’t have to endure that with the heat tbh.

    I think most Heat fans know Spo is a great coach although he has some weird quirks with his lineups at times which can cause people to question him.

    Rockets preseason starts tonight. I don't care if it is against a Chinese team. I'm just glad basketball is back because my college and pro football teams have been straight trash.



    Welcome back, Rockets.

    Riley doesn’t give him enough shooting, which will be a major issue this season.

    If Daryl Morey is fired over a damn tweet about China, Rockets' fans and players will protest. The team's owner better not cave in to the Chinese threats...smh

    The whole thing is hilarious to me. South Parks episode last week called “Band in China” was literally about us censoring ourselves to get that sweet China money. Harden was in the episode on a plane to China lol.

    Winnie the Pooh is banned in China because people were posting memes of the Chinese president looking like Pooh. Lmao.

    I’m so hyped for the Pelicans this season. Doubly so because the Dolphins suck and are very difficult to watch.

    Zion already looks like a top 10 player of all time. He seriously reminds me of a bigger Lebron James.

    It’s incredibly exciting. I’m doubly psyched because David Griffin structured the team so Zion doesn’t have the pressure to be “the man”. At least, not on his rookie year.

    Tyler Herro looking like he did before he went to Kentucky.

    That's when I changed my mind about him, when I took a look at what he was before, knowing what Kentucky sometimes asks their players to do in order to fit in.

    And that’s why you’re not getting paid to do this.

    If you were to come out to our local guard training camp led by local select team coaches, and said some dumb stuff like that, you’d probably be forced to clean the swimming pool while getting pelted by basketballs...probably while nude. If you had the knowledge these guys have, you’d have known Herro was an elite slam dunk prospect since the fifth grade

    I'm confused.

    He basically said he was looking better than he did at Kentucky if I'm not mistaken. That doesnt contradict what you said at all. In fact it can even be taken as showing his opinion correct to a degree.

    I was browsing the draft forum and came across this gem that some moron replied to CK with

    “And that is why you don't make money doing it - Jordan love is not in the same stratosphere as Herbert from almost any basic QB evaluation metric. if you want to debate that point, please come out to our DeBartolo Sports Elite Quarterback Training Academy. Learn from guys that do it for a living and say what you wrote here, they would make you clean the pool deck our facility if you did, likely nude, while slinging footballs at you. This type of dumb **** just lets dumb opinions propagate. You have an open invitation to learn some things if you can get time off from your day job.”

    I was joking, bruh.

    Sean marks did it again I think. Watching Nets and Lakers and 2nd rounder C/PF Nic Claxton looked great. He's been getting great writeups.all off-season and I see why. Great athleticism and his shooting looks improved from college. I think he's better suited to 4 than 5 but we have a logjam at 4 this year. He might end up in G league just to get minutes but I think the 2nd rounder will make the team

    Additionally Musa our draft pick from last year looked great. Marks is just killing the draft 1st and 2nd rounds.

    Lebron has made himself look bad today... you cant be a social justice warrior only on your convenience.... now that it affects your money you want to speak against social justice... okay dude, time for you to give your login and password to your PR team and stop giving opinions for a little while..

    In my opinion Lebron isnt nearly as intelligent as people make him out to be.

    He may read books and advocate that for kids, which is great, but most of his ideas that he expresses lack clear focus, logic or any sort of knowledge beyond the surface of the subject he is speaking of.

    If he wasnt the best player in the NBA he would basically be an average guy, brain wise, but people go around kicking his butt because....Basketball.
