It's been fantastic - with every team looking vulnerable.

Pistons just beat the Warriors in GS - on the second night of a road B2B no less. Warriors once again far too casual with the ball - turning it over for fun.

Knicks stomping the Cavs in Cleveland...

Hopped on here hoping to see you celebrating. Hope they continue to play like that for the rest of the year. Still early but maybe this season/playoffs aren't as automatic as people assumed. :pint:

It still feels weirdly too early to suss anything out. But I guess I'm just not nearly enough of a believer in a Pistons/Grizzlies finals I guess. :lol:

Lakers just wrecked the Pistons...

Gambling on these early games has been a no-go!

Yep, steamrolled. They were faster and just kept coming. Had an answer for everything.

I suppose, but what the hell was Reggie on last night. McHale said it right, that fudge wouldn't fly back in the day. Hell probably wouldn't fly on any other team. There was some long periods of little to no ball movement.

Yeah... That's bad (evil) Reggie. Pistons fans are split on him. Some folks love the way he played in 2015-2016 and hold onto the memories like a dream. I personally think his style of play that year (hero ball) is unsustainable fool's gold. Reggie (along with Dre) are the most frustrating Pistons to follow. Ish Smith runs the offense better, but SVG keeps doubling down on Reggie. To be fair, he was injured most of last season but they played him anyways which added to my disdain. Sometimes he's solid, but he often forgets about his teammates.

Right now Indy is looking like they made a great deal in the Paul George Oladipo trade. They knew that they weren't gonna convince George to stay. Oladipo is playing great so far and Sabonis has been killing it while Turner is out. I really hope Indy plays Sabonis and Turner on the court together.

If there is a God, I'd like him/her/it to keep Embiid + Simmons healthy for at least the next 10 years.

They are the best thing to watch in the NBA right now, with all due respect to Giannis.

Sam Hinkie must be proud of his boys.

It's crazy how talented they are. I've never wanted anything so bad as to keep Embiid healthy. Barring injury, these two will be in the HOF one day... plus Embiid is a social media savage! :pint:
