Really exciting to see the "tanking" teams win games.

Hack journalists on twitter going "this is a must-lose game for both sides" is ******* ridiculous. Toxic thought process.
No one that is active on the court or bench is ever trying to lose games intentionally.

The NBA has too many farcical parts to the competetition already without 15 teams trying to tank at once for an 86% chance to not draft a player.

I am so happy that the big team ups of 2021 failed.

Teams built to win on top end talent and not on balanced well built rosters.

They would probably be really strong if they kept it balanced and didn't add Westbrook or Harden. But they thought they could overpower their depth and balance issues with star power. It has failed in the most spectacular way possible.
Going early here, i am not giving up on Philly yet.

Depth always helps throughout the regular season, it is the post season where the start power tends to shine through.

Everyone's second team, the Pelicans, have dispatched the Clippers to take ownership of the water.

No Ingram no worries. Zion led the way with an almost triple double.

Son of Skeletor enjoy the ride

Kicked them out of the crypto and halfway back to San Diego.

Nice news to wake up to on a Monday.

Disappointing weekend for the Bulls, dropping both games.

Managed to get down to Sydney to check out the new official NBA store that opened on Friday. Not too bad at all.

Plenty of jerseys but still missing City editions.

Healthy and fit Zion really is a game changer for the Pels, yes I know they have won without him and their bench runs deep, but given all his injuries and criticisms about his weight, some people thought he couldn't replicate this forum.

Has been a beast and it's wonderful to watch.

Knicks look pretty solid this year not championship material but they look pretty solid.

He's a unique person. I mean a :"short" 4 in the Barkley mode, but quick on his feet.

Also, props for the reintroduction of:

Never seen Beal play so badly. Only has 2 points after 3 quarters, and they were from Free Throws

Good to see nut touching defence is still applied by the warriors

Sorry, when I was talking about Harden I was talking about the Nets bringing him in not the subsequent 76ers trade.

It was a huge risk. That has backfired.

76ers are more balanced.
