I rather see the Raptors in the NBA Finals than either of those teams(if my Pacers can't make it happen which is likely with McMillan as coach)


You are a Pacer fan and Laker fan like me?



Well I'm kind of taking a sabattical on the Laker fandom with LeBron there but otherwise yeah.

De'Aron Fox is a beast huh?

Dude really blossomed this year. Right now, De'Aron Fox might be better than Tatum


Tatum proved himself against the best last season.

Fox last five games have been against average or bad teams. Big improvement right now is that he's drawing a lot more fouls compared to last season. Won't call him a beast based on performances against Memphis, Washington, Miami, Orlando and Atlanta. Same goes for Kings who are 6-3, but 5 wins against these teams after 1-3 start.


Fox lighting up Kyle Lowry so far tonight.

37.5% now after tonight's game.


Man, I have to give it up to the King's scouting department (and Vlade?). They've really nailed it lately.

Hield, Fox, and I forgot that they tried to sign Zach LaVine this summer.

He was overrated when he was at the top of his game. He was never an efficient shooter. It was frustrating pooling for his Bulls against the 2011 Heat. After last night's game, his FG jumped to 46% overall and 46% from threes. Even at the height of his game, he's low 40's and low 30's from threes, which I expect where he'll end up at the end of the season.

Never this good? He was league MVP, he was better than this. Maybe not as efficient, but that is just silly.

BTW Lanny, I agree, he's disgusting.

Tatum w/ 2 pts so far today vs. the Suns.

1-7 fg
4 pts
7 reb
30 min

It's starting to look more and more legitimate that Fox is better than Tatum this year.

Man, Tatum's giving Kobe a bad name.

Hilarious how bad Melo is at this point

Tonight the Rockets got blown out by the Thunder without Westbrook while Melo had 2 points on 1-11 shooting with 0 assists, steals or blocks.

Nice to see some of the top teams struggling so bad to start the season, it is making our rough start much more manageable.. Only 2 games back from a top 4 record in the conference.

That was a superb OT. No timeouts called, back and forth...shots being made on each other. Great fun.

depends on perspective....he is not playing to the level of 2018 Playoff Tatum, but he is clearly playing better than Fultz, Ball, and Jackson....the guys drafted directly in front and after him.

Not sure what kind of perspective that is, but the statement is Tatum isn't very good this year.

That statement has nothing to do w/ players drafted around him.

When we say Zubac is not playing well this year, we don't go back and look at the players drafted around him.

The Thunder really look good to me after that dismal start...

Dumping Melo has made such a difference for them.
