Hoping the young Bucks can take a leap this year.

Also, put me down right at the top of the GS haters list, but damn I love having an evil empire team in a sport. Always makes it more fun and interesting to have an unbeatable villain.

It was surprising they didn't make strides last season. It seems like the chemistry is just a little off. A couple mismatched pieces.

There will be a handful of relevant teams and the Bucks, like my Bulls, will be irrelevant.

They need to find a way to unload Monroe. He just doesn't fit with what they're trying to do. Honestly, I don't think he fits with what a lot of teams are trying to do in today's league. He's still a good offensive player, but he mostly serves to pound the ball in the post and not move around a lot.

Also, they had no shooting whatsoever aside from Middleton. So, even if they exercised quality spacing, defenses didn't really have to pay it any mind. Hopefully Dellavedova and Teletovic are able to come in and knock down shots and help space things a bit when they're on the floor.

I'd be thrilled if they could move Monroe and Carter-Williams even if it meant taking pennies on the dollar value-wise. At this point, it's addition by subtraction with those two.

Soo ready for this season. Save me a seat on the GS hate wagon. Wish KD stayed but it is nice to have a villain. Hope Russ and crew torch them come November 3rd at GS :pint:
Im going to need this shirt too..

Really have no idea what to expect from the Rockets this year, but i'm just glad Howard is gone. From what i've seen so far it seems like the energy is very positive. Also Harden is starting point guard this year, should be fun.

Hadn't heard what happened so I went to NBA.com to check, but man they have an atrocious site re-design. On my laptop and this was obviously made for a phone. Pain in the ass. The site was always a piece of fudge, but at first glance, this is worse.

I'll google what happened...

I'm convinced the arena has to be on an ancient burial ground or something. How can they be this unlucky?

On another note, I know its preseason and Russ only played for half the game and Adams was out for the second half with an ankle injury but damn you OKC, that defense against Real Madrid looked suspect.

Been one preseason game and I already hate the Warriors so goddamned much. Wake me up when the Finals start.
