There's like 6 or 7 teams that could feasibly win the title this upcoming year, a fair bit of parity. I think this season will be fun to watch.

I will miss Darren Collison. This will also be the first time in human history that it might be fun to watch a Clippers game. It's going to be pretty damn hard to score on them consistently and that's exciting.

Strangely, people are really hinky here about the Brogdon deal and its level of perceived courtesy to the Bucks. Also kinda funny that he threw shade specifically at the Nets for their offer practices.

Honestly, one of the weirdest things I've seen this off season is the TJ Warren deal. The Suns had, what looks to be a fine player who can score just entering his prime, on a cheapo contract, that they spent 5 years cultivating, and they send him to Indiana at their own expense. There's even reports that initially the Pacers front office didn't respond to the offer because they thought it was a joke.

Additional weird facts:

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George were briefly teammates on the Pacers, technically. The Pacers traded Kawhi for George Hill drafting him specifically for that trade.

TJ Warren and Doug McDermott were, in 2014, the two highest scoring (by PPG) players in college basketball, and are now teammates on the Pacers.

The Pacers have a long history of signing people with similar names. George Hill, Paul George, and that other Hill guy whose name I forget (Solomon Hill). We now have 3 TJs on the team - TJ Warren, TJ McConnel, and TJ Leaf. Saying "hey TJ" in practice is going to be deeply confusing.

Westbrook probably feeling like he's had the carpet pulled from under him rn. He could transition into the latter part of his career gracefully by nurturing a new era of players in with all these picks going forward, but seems unlikely from his past.

Unfortunate for Westbrook, while I didn't watch that many of his games it seemed like he was taking better shots and not just bulldozing to the hoop perpetually. I don't know if it's because his shot was atrocious this season so teams just sagged off of him even more, or if he genuinely made that adaptation to his game. Interested to see if he keeps that same level of decision making or if next season if his shot starts falling we get the Westbrook we all know and love.

westbrook had one of the worst seasons of all time from a high volume/low efficiency standpoint and his game does not age particularly well

okc can now stay vaguely competitive if they want, or move gallo again to get even more assets, on top of SEVEN first round picks and shai

even with pg-13 they weren't going anywhere and now they're set up for the future, it was a no-brainer

Whoever is doing marketing for Paul George is a genius because so far he hasn't been worth what teams have given for him in general.

I honestly hate watching Westbrook play, but I do applaud his loyalty to a small market team. I doubt the market for him will be hot - A. he's super expensive. B. He's older for his style of play. C. He's a ball dominating possession black hole. But somebody may take a chance on it. The stupidest thing I've seen written so far is that the Rockets might want him - I would watch that just to see Chris Paul, James Harden, and RW physically fight each other for possession of the ball.

Also the Demarcus Cousins signing with GS for a HUGE pay cut, and then basically table scraps in LA just now shows that the kings made a *damn* smart deal on getting rid of him years ago. Basically their whole franchise now is built off of that trade, and if they had stuck with their franchise guy they'd have nothing.

the lakers finally made shooting and depth a priority during free agency (signing avery bradley, demarcus cousins, jared dudley, danny green, alex caruso, etc.)

the raptors can possibly contend for a top seed in the east but the top four teams are probably gonna be the 76ers, pacers, bucks, and either the celtics or nets depending on how much of the workload kyrie irving and kemba walker can shoulder for their respective teams

the warriors won’t make the western conference semifinals this season

the lakers, clippers, jazz, nuggets, trail blazers, and rockets can all make legitimate claims for being a top four team in the western conference

the knicks should try to swing a trade for russell westbrook in december seeing as NBA free agent movement requires preexisting all-stars to secure a signing now

Anyone you guys like in Summer League?
I promise I didn't make this post to sound like an annoying homer, but our entire draft class has been looking great so far, especially Carsen Edwards and Grant Williams (playing the 4 like Yabu was supposed to be getting towards we'll miss u dancing bear D:).
Tacko Fall, of course, is an event-wide fan favorite too, Danny sign that man

zion got stuffed like 20 times vs the knicks, he only scored from wide open dunks, he was gassed as fuck and he has no other abilities other than dunking while being like 5'8" and 400 lbs
he will be a bust

Zion is a great athlete, I said it before the draft that right now he can be an excellent role player but the people saying he will break the NBA are idiots, throughout the NBA's history there's been prolific athletes who didn't dominate the game immediately.

zion has the ability to carve out a niche in the NBA as a big who can dominate in the paint and finish at the rim, but unless he either develops into a solid 3 and D big or becomes some freakish mixture of joel embiid and giannis antetokounmpo he'll be relegated to a fourth or fifth scoring option on a low-tier team above .500 or a sixth man on a playoffs team

i highly doubt he'll be a bust though
