2016-17 NBA Thread....

I love basketball but the NBA has less drama and is the most predictable of the four pro leagues (NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB).

As we have seen, while baseball, football, and hockey have their traditional powers, the teams you can count on being good year in and year out, they also have teams that rise from the ashes and get hot at the right moment. Their playoffs bring real surprises...did anyone before this season really see Atlanta making the Super Bowl?!? :blink:

That's why there have been less repeat champions in the NFL, NHL, and MLB than in the NBA over the past 20 years.

The NBA season is a long dreary slog towards the inevitable Cavs vs. Warriors (or maybe the Spurs) Finals.

HELLO PELICAN!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't expect too much from NO this year, it's gonna take Boogie a little time to get into the Pelicans system.  But once Davis and Cousins start clicking (think Robinson and Duncan), and with Jrue hitting 17 and 7 per game, they will be a force to be reckoned with.

They will need a new coach first.

Well the Pelicans have not won yet with their big two and tonight must go to OKC.  I am really anxious to see Chris Paul return to the Clippers to see how good they can be with him.  They had Golden st on the ropes at the half and then allowed them to blow them out in the second half.  With Chris Paul and Blake, they can be competitive with anyone. In the East, if anyone can give the lazy Cavs trouble it may be the Wizards who are damn tough at home.  Atlanta also.  I am not sold on Boston.  In the West Utah is coming on, and Denver has been a very strange team.  They clobbered the Warriors just before the All Star break.  They have played well with the exception of that joke of a game at Sacramento.  Are the Kings better without Cousins? Oops, allow me to answer that one.  They just got smoked by the Hornets after that huge upset of Denver that cost me a 4 teamer.  Pricks.  5 nobody's turn into Micheal Jordan's when I bet against them

Golden st has to deal with this injury to Durant.  They are going to the West finals but I believe the Clippers will be waiting for them.  Chris Paul is back.  The Clippers are going to be a force.  No doubt.   De Andre, Blake, CPIII,  Reddick and more.   Oh  see CPIII is back and Blake and D Andre are all in shape.  Crawford and Reddick also make this a great team that everyone had best watch out for.  Hear that Sean?  Paul?  Clippers baby!!!!

 

In the East, the Wizards to me are the biggest threat along with Atlanta to possibly beat Cleveland.  It will take some doing.  But the Wizards may be the toughest team in the NBA at home.

^^ I hear you about the Clippers, and--as always--I'll believe it when I see it...  :P Of course, never ever count out the Spurs...

 

I see the Heat still have a puncher's chance at the 8 spot in the East. Not that it matters--that 8 seed is just a fight to see who will get stomped by Cleveland in the 1st round of the playoffs...

They were a thorn in the Clippers side back when they had all hands on deck.  Its been a while since Chris Paul has been ready to go and Blake Griffin also.  No we see if this Doc can coach.  I do not care much for him. . I think he should have been fired long ago.  With this lineup they should be right in the thick of it.  The Cavs have big injury issues now.  I would not be shocked if the Wizards or Hawks won the East.  Golden st even without Durant is great with their starting lineup.  But the bench is not deep.  The Clippers have a better bench.  I am not a believer in San Antonio minus their future hall of fame forward that has retired.  Duncan.  I know the Clippers are better than them.  Houston is also better.  The Warriors will need Kevin Durant down the road.  I am interested in seeing how the Pelicans do now that they have Cousins and Davis.  Denver is another team to watch.  The hammered Golden st at home.   They have been very good the past month and a half or so.

Dirk entered the 30K Club tonight in Dallas. Dirk Joins NBA Legends Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Wilt Chamberlain as the only players to surpass the milestone.

What's Kerr up to? Now they lose the series to SA, losing the tie breaker for home court advantage and allowing SA to within 1/2 a game!?!?
