Who's going to be some League Pass teams to watch this year?

Minny should be a pretty fun one to watch, and of course we'll all be watching the Nets pretty much every night. OKC and Westbrook should be another good one.

Who else should I keep on my radar?

Speaking of league pass, can anyone share their experience with it?

I was thinking about getting it but I've heard nothing but horrible things regarding it.
League pass is free for the 1st week of the season so try it out yourself.

thoughts on the Pacers? a lot of the projections and experts aren't that high on them, i think they can challenge for the 2 seed
As a minimum, I expect them to be in contention for the third seed together with Atlanta.

Yeah, I think they're a top 4 team in the East if healthy.
agreed.  health is the key, I could see them as the 2 seed if they pull it together

Overrated, IMO.  Paul George is great, Jeff Teague is pretty good, but Al Jefferson is a throwback center and might not even start.  I like Myles Turner.  Still don't think they are as good as ATL, TOR or BOS.  I put them at 5th seed in the East.

Same. I see them as a 5-10 seed.

Hayward and Favors out, and Utah still looks quite solid.

Decent challenge for the warriors right out of the gate.  Let's see if the spurs can keep the blowout under 30.

Warriors' defense is clearly not the same with Zaza as Bogut.

I love Shelvin Mack.  Really was hoping we could trade James Young and a second for him.

That preview for Logan looks pretty sweet! It helps that it largely focuses on Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, who are two of my favorite actors.

its been like 2 minutes.  Also, didn't the spurs win 67 games last year ?  Aldridge and now Pau are a ton to handle.  There's almost enough talent on the spurs to lose by less than 30.

Seems like Kawhi is a bit hesitant or uncomfortable out there as the primary guy.

Durant's efficiency is going to be sooooo much better with teammates that aren't chuckers like Westbrook

It wasn't the same all through preseason either.

Is Danny Green hurt or something forcing Anderson to start? That seems like a weird replacement for him. Terrible role for him to be in.
