NBA season 2018/19



  • Sixers, Bucks and Raptors all made very good moves that enhance their chances.

    These teams smell their chance with a Lebron-less Eastern Conference.



  • The Lakers make do with trading Zubac and Beazley to the clips for some Muscala guy. I hope he's good because I liked Zubac



  • Are the Lakers fucked? LBJ is still awesome, but he's old.

    They publicly offered up every player on the roster to try and land Davis, and missed out. That has to fuck with the locker room. In the end they didn't get shit. They are playing in the West, where you need a good record just for the privilige of being smashed by the Warriors in the first round.

    No one appears to want to deal with them, so there is a chance they get no one in the off season either.

    Disharmony, no big signing, LBJ to request a trade in the off-season (to the Clippers duh duh!!)



  • Saw Brian Windhorst on ESPN basically say that the Pelicans just wanted to fuck with the Lakers this free agency period, as they think they've been tampering to get AD to LA.

    So they suckered them into trade talks, leaked every offer they received, which in turn sowed some real disharmony in the squad.

    It's a great 'fuck you' strategy, though I'm still guessing Davis wears a Lakers jersey eventually.



  • @barbarian Windhorst is a bit of a puppet for LeBron so I would take his comments with a grain of salt.

    That's ESPN as a whole. He's their first second and third story of the day if he takes a shit.

    Muscala can play. In today’s NBA he’s a good addition. Can shoot outside and open up space for LBJ, Ingram and Kuzma



  • On the Lakers, don’t worry Magic was going to be with the team in Boston to give all those young guys a nice big hug.



  • New Sixers roster looks really good so far - a couple of wins against Denver and the Lakers now in the books.

    Fuck the rest of the NBA, the only thing I'm actually interested in this season is who wins the Eastern Conference (and then loses in five to the Warriors).

    You can barely separate the four teams at the moment, while the Pacers sans-Oladipo will still hang around...

    The East was good fun before the close of the trading, it's even more now.

    Spurs had a shocking weekend. Rested their best players v the Warriors to keep them fresh for their other two games, which they got smoked in as well.
