Twice I’ve wanted make comments on other pre-season games and there hasn’t been a thread so wanna hear it? Here it goes!

So I’m really intrigued by Dallas. They’re currently stomping on the Paperclips (edit- I should add that i JUST turned on the game so i don’t know who all is playing or not of what the circumstances are...). I don’t think they’d take the whole bag this season but Doncic/Porky together is an intriguing combo.

Basketball is going to be So Much Fun this season

Haven't watched any Clippers games yet, but it would not surprise me if the ol' Clipper luck rears its ugly head again...

Kawhi Leonard - 2/12 and 1-5 from 3.. I shouldn’t be excited because he’s probably saving his energy for the season opener.

Can't really read too much into preseason games its just for building team chemistry....but yeah, I do kinda like to hear that the Clippers aren't just running teams off the court.

Mavs are legit. Doncic and Porzingis are a hell of a duo

We'll find out what the Clippers are really about when George gets back. The Mavs do look good, but we shall see.

It would be disappointing if Zion started missing time. The league benefits from the hype surrounding him.

So far, the Harden-Westbrook experiment looks underwhelming. One of the mysteries of our time is the disappearance of RW's jump shot. He was never a great jump shooter, but sheesh.

Agree with that part. It seems like he blew up the second he left here

Wait. Wasn’t DeAndre Ayton just drafted last season?! This is not an auspicious start to his sophomore year.

Thank you ma’m for this thread. In Houston tonight, how did they choke away this game? Small sample size but Westbrook and Harden don’t look so bad together.

Warriors could go from being in the NBA Finals last season to having to hustle to make the playoffs this season.

If 2006-2008 Kobe was substituted in for Steph, and assuming you have a healthy Klay back, I think Kobe gets this Warriors squad deep in the playoffs maybe WCF.

Agreed. If they land in the lottery they get to keep their 1st this season, fwiw.

I love seeing Trae Young and Luka have such success. I only hope Fultz and Lonzo can join them.

Not really doubtful actually. I’m watching the Warriors now and they look worse than I expected.

We're 1 and 1/2 games in ...and the Clippers are already annoying af. Refs letting them get away with murder just like the Celts back in the day. Need to pop these chumps in the mouth and remind them who's boss.
