    Wow! Paul George getting paid in LA, after the Bubble. Good for him.
    I recall both of the teams (Pacers/OKC) that traded Paul George did better with the player they traded for him.
    Paul George is a NBA top scorer in the regular season games however, don't bet $$$ on him in the postseason games lol
    In the upcoming season Kawhi has to do extra-overtime in every practice working-out with Paul George to make him a weapon in a post season series. Why?

    It's very easy to defend a player (Melo/Paul) who doesn't have a quick-step dribble move, plus keep using the same first step fake jumper on either side of the court in a series having 3 or 4 games in a week.

    The Clippers will use "a few sets" in the triangle offense this season, because Kawhi Leonard "expressed a desire to perform in the triangle."

    ďWe have put in two or three sets of the triangle and let Kawhi play in those spaces where Kobe and Jordan played,Ē said coach Tyronn Lue. It sounds like these sets will be used sporadically, perhaps when the halfcourt offense stagnates, but it's still a great indication that Lue is steering the offense toward his stars, Kawhi and Paul George.

    The Brooklyn Nets are owning the House of NY by having a 26 pt WIN over GSW 125-99 in the first game of the season.
    The Durant Brooklyn Nets high performance are looking to be the King of the Atlantic Division.

    The LA Clippers beat the LA Lakers in their first meeting in the regular season again 116-109 .. however, the game looked kinda lop-sided having Harrell rebounding and scoring a double-double for the Lakers.

    Ja Morant looked like a superstar in Wednesday's 131-119 season-opening loss to the Spurs, dropping a career-high 44 points with nine assists, two rebounds, two steals, one block, one triple and one turnover.
    So yeah, the Ja we saw in the bubble took yet another leap. The only other player in history to record a higher scoring total in the first game of his second season is Elgin Baylor with 52 points, foreshadowing what could be a truly epic season for Morant. If he develops a reliable jumper, the league is going to be in serious trouble because they are already having a tough enough time keeping him out of the paint -- he was fifth overall in drives per game last season, shooting 56% inside of five feet. Fantasy managers paid a premium for a reason with Morant having an ADP of 26 this season.

    In their first game of the season the Atlanta Hawks took a 24 pt lead over the Chicago Bulls at half-time, and boost their lead to a 36 pt lead at the end of the 3rd quarter.
    Mr. Trae Young is the real-Deal scoring 37 pts, 6 rbs, 7ast, and 5-6 from the 3-ball line in 25 minutes tonight, plus the Hawks dynamic winning performance haven't played this well since the Doc Rivers & Dominique Wilkins show in the 1990's

    This is the 3rd season after the famous draft night trade of Doncic for Trae Young, and still the trade is even over the two all-star players.

    Maybe we shouldíve signed GH.... He has monster game and leads CHA to victory over Nets.

    KD missed shot at end. Nets down by as many as 16 in the 4th.

    Tyrese Haliburton shot 5-of-7 from the field in Tuesdayís win over the Nuggets, scoring 13 points with three rebounds, six assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Haliburton was excellent Tuesday night, even knocking down a 3-pointers from a range rarely visited by players not named Curry, Lillard or Young. The rookie guard played well enough down the stretch that Luke Walton left him on the court to close things out, with Marvin Bagley (23 minutes) losing out on playing time as a result. Will there a come a point this season when Walton decides to move Haliburton into the starting lineup? Thatís a tough question to answer, especially when it comes to figuring out who would sit. But at the very least, Haliburton is playing well enough to be trusted to finish games.


    Toppin, the kid from Israel, Okoro, and Halliburton are gonna be compared to one another thru the early part of their careers.

    Oppin apparently not as NBA ready as this kid...

    Ball had it going on, as the rook beats Doncic and the Mavs.

    Suddenly, Mavs are 1-3. Imagine if...?

    Imagine things just work out well for the Knicks, finally. Mavs finish 27-45, hit lottery gold. NYK find themselves with 2 top 15 picks in this epic draft coming up in 2021!

    Thibbs has the ship sailing in the right direction...

    Imagine if...

    John Wall made his debut in Rox uni and scored 22 pts with 9 dimes giving the Rox their first win of the season. The newly acquired CWood had 21_pts. This team maybe better than the Russ team of last year, Boogie in a reserve role but if they can integrate him into a larger role this team may surprise and convince Harden he should take that 100M extension to stay in Houston.

    Love it, KP is practicing so his return is imminent, lets see if the Mavs continue their losing ways when he returns.

    Obi most NBA ready prospect? Still buy that crap. Yeah, heís old... but, obviously, not the most ready...

    I would feel a lot better with IQ and Halliburton future:



    TYRESE HALIBURTON
    PG, SACRAMENTO KINGS

    Tyrese Haliburton started the second half for an injured De'Aaron Fox (hamstring tightness) and went nuts in the fourth quarter, scoring 15 points with a key block, a huge steal and a dagger 3-pointer in the Kings 128-124 win over the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Haliburton finished with a career-high 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting and three 3-pointers with seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block. The block was against Coby White's late 3-pointer, who had a career-high 36 points, he deflected an inbounds pass with the game on the line and his corner three won the game for the Kings. Haliburton already looks like one of the best players on the team and he's going to challenge guys like James Wiseman and LaMelo Ball for Rookie of the Year

    Itís early... but it looks like we missed another gem...

    Tyrese Haliburton scored 15 points and dished a career-high eight assists during Friday's loss, making 5-of-10 shots with all of his makes coming behind the arc.

    He filled out his line with two boar2ds, two steals, one block and just one turnover in 29 minutes. The Kings are a bit of a mess, with off-court drama involving two of their best players, but Haliburton radiates promise for the franchise. He fell in the draft to No. 12 and plenty of teams are regretting passing on him, as he's already an assured presence and the team's second-best playmaker. He came in averaging 4.7 dimes vs. 0.7 turnovers, remarkable for a rookie, and he's shown elite efficiency from every level as a scorer. He shines brightest in 9-cat but is a fantasy star in the making regardless of league settings.

    Iíve watched this kid 3 games now... He is good. Looks like Alan Houston. Smooth and crafty and does everything well. He is definitely NBA ready...

    I guess I feel like this is a bit premature. Heís getting 28 minutes per game and averaging 12 points and 5 assists per game so far. Itís just like with Quickley where he played a couple strong 4th quarters and suddenly heís a star.

    Toppin never plays so I guess compared to anyone in the draft heís not going to compare well.

    Iím not saying heís a star... just saying that Iíve watched 3 SAC games so far. He is like a young Tatum. He just looks the part, like IQ. When heís in the court, you notice. He tips balls, heís communicating and involved, he can score at all levels, plays defense and rebounds and sets up teammates.

    Itís only a few games... but heís one of SACís best players right now.
