Excited for Philly. Embiid, Simmons and Fultz. What a collection of top prospects.
Can't get over Fultz's free throw motion.

I was really high on him pre draft, but I'm not sure if I was right to be

I literally just said this exact thing in another thread

Did anybody else notice the Pacers attempted 102 shots and 32 free throws against the Nets last night?

How is that possible without overtime?  That's crazy.


Pacers had 8 players in double figures, 3 of whom had 20+.

Is it possible that the Pacers could be fun this year?

They have a sneaky good (or at least fun) team.

PG: D.Collison
SG: Oladipo
SF: Bogdanovic
PF: Thad Young
 C: Myles Turner

5 guys who can all shoot the ball with range.
4 guys who can handle and pass the ball.
Good quickness & athleticism.

Some decent bench players too in Corey Joseph, Lance Stephenson, TJ Leaf (who I like the look of) and Sabonis. I was happy Big Al didn't play. Instead they went with the younger more active big bodies of Sabonis and Leaf. I hope they continue to do that. I think those young guys are better than Big Al (sadly).

We have the Bulls and the Suns looking worse than the Nets so far. We need Lakers to stunk it up too.

Hate admitting it, but I'm about to watch this Lakers game because of Lonzo Ball.

Me too, but at least it's because of the 30 yr old rookie for the Clips..   c'mon man Celtic pride!! Jk

That said, I do expect Milos to run circles around Lavar's boy.

Still not buying Ball as an elite talent. Just don't see it.
