Less than 3 days to go before the 2022-2023 season commences. Lest this be a special season not due to the crowning of a potential new champion, should the Warriors fail to repeat, but for the race to the bottom. The prize? 14% chance of securing the no 1 pick, and with it the newly termed Alien Victor Wembanyama the 7'2" point-shooting-centre.

There will be many distractions of course throughout the season, some consensual.

The season tips off with West and Eastern powerhouses colliding:

The Celtics minus coach Ime host traditional rivals from Philly. The 6ers look stacked with the addition of PJ Tucker, D House and Montrez Harrell. Lots of flexing here.
Meanwhile out west, will we see Draymond Green clocking a Lakers player? Let's hope it's Westbrook

Thanks for your patience during the off season. May the banter begin.

During the session, one employee asked Silver about tanking, a theme that is widely expected to dominate the league conversation with 7-foot-4 French phenom Victor Wembanyama -- a potentially franchise-altering prospect -- being projected to be the No. 1 pick in the 2023 draft.

"We put teams on notice," Silver told employees. "We're going to be paying particular attention to the issue this year."

Hmmmmm. What can they do to stop it? Perhaps let it go and then fine the ball club afterwards. Then deny tanking exists a la try afl

Give me the 1-7 Sixers. Fire Doc, hire Big Balls - heading to the NLCS the ECF is the easiest bank you'll ever make.

The plan is in motion. The talent and roster is not the problem lmao.

Honestly wouldn't blame Embiid if he puts in a trade request.

This is how I feel about every non-white Celtics player.
