Same stuff we heard last year, and then injuries happened right when we were supposed to 'turn it on'. Which put us in a desperate situation from then on.

I really hope my "concern" is just me being silly. But *part* of me cant help seeing this happen...

"It's just pre-season"

"It's just mid-season"

"It's still just the regular season..."

etc, etc.

Let's just say...yea, I'm a tad on edge. Feel free to use that against me should the team get off to a nice start I'll be more than happy if they do.

If they are going to struggle without LeBron, then it becomes a more difficult decision to give him some rest games during the regular season.

Is it too early for me to think "what if" the Hield trade went down instead?

Ok, I'll shutup. It is too early for that. I think.

For what it’s worth, the Lakers were kicking ass last season before AD wore down. 22-6, iirc, going about 3/4 speed. And then Solomon Hill dived into Lebron’s legs and ended our chances. So the mid season regular season stuff didn’t really apply last season.

You are correct but even then a number of us (including me) wondered just how good that team was at the time. They had a rather puff-like schedule as I recall, including a stretch of barely beating subpar teams.

Let's just say...I'm cautiously...cautious?

I remember the Heat in 2010 started 8-7 in their first 15 games then went on a 12 game and 9 game winning streak in their next 25 games...

This isn't 2010. And neither is LeBron, Carmelo or Westbrook.

I gave them the benefit of the doubt and went with The Glass Is Half Full scenario rather than The Glass Is Half Empty scenario.


If LeBron has to play 75 games so they can get to 50 wins, he might not have a full tank for the playoffs.

You mean Dwight Howard?

AD is one of the toughest guys out there. Hardly a coward if that’s what you were calling him.


AD one of the toughest? FOH with that (bleep).


Ok tough guy…relax.
AD is having a solid game..

wat? You're the one that said AD is on one of the toughest guys out there which is f'king ludicrous...because he's not.


I meant he’s been tough in this game. He’s been all over the place. Dunking on people, rebounding, etc. that’s defined as tough…right?

No need to get pissy with me. I think AD had a solid tough game. My opinion.

As an aside, I believe Dwight for the Lakers the only +

Dwayne Wade aint coming through that door; Chris Bosch aint comin through that door...

True, we are seeing how this team lacks athleticism (my first game of the preseason).
