It's a road game....home opener is about 300 bucks a ticket for nose bleeds....so no

I'm actually going to the LA Kings game...so I will be at Staples center tonight...watching lakers when I get home tape delayed....tickets were stupid cheap...like under 50 bucks for both tickets...couldn't figure out why it was so cheap when I grapped them a week ago.....it's the Islanders who suck but why so cheap?.......LeBron's first game duh...oh well I'd still have grabbed them if I knew

Did also buy some tickets to see Toronto Maple Leafs only game in LA this year though Art

Tonight kicks it all off but we always seem to play like shit in Portland so I'm not expecting too much especially with Paul Allen passing away

I stopped watching in the 4th, but the disparity in play between Rondo and Ball was obvious. Ball's +/- must have been horrible. Ingram looks better than last year in g1 and more confident.

Loved the Magic interview where he said he could see Boston beating the dubs in 7....thinks Tatum will be an all-star this year too, the painful admission Ainge rules, and Brad is the 2nd best coach in the league. :bored: (He's 1st)

Until Pop retires he is still the best coach in the NBA in my opinion:

Pop
Brad
Carlisle

Are the top 3.

Lonzo's shot looked a lot better and more fluid. But he did look stiff which is to be expected but I do not think Lonzo understands with Rondo and LBJ and to a lesser extent Ingram out there he has to figure out how to play without the ball. Ingram is starting to fill out and like I said just give him time he is only 20.

As for Tatum in 2 years he will be the C's best player no matter who else is on the roster unless it was Anthony Davis.

Well then, he needs to get ugly again...he shot 26% I believe. Ingram's confidence is through the roof...never pensive anymore. As for the Ball comparison, Rondo is just magic at finding the open man, and his lane penetration was really impressive...Lonzo had nothing there. I had to remind myself it was a decade ago RR won with us. Love McGee...always have, just a baller. Speaking of AD, I reviewed my pics and I want to amend them...NO is 2 in the west. :wiggle: He'd look great in green. Tatum can't amaze me enough. Reverence to Pop, but I have Brad at #1...know more on that his year :nod: I also think Quin is in the running at 3rd

Well the thing that Pop and Brad are really amazing at is getting people to buy in and understand sometimes they're not going to be the horse that night. And yeah AD when healthy is my favorite player in the league to watch with Russ being a close second (honorable mention is Devin Booker). As for Zo he is still recovering from knee surgery he only had 1-2 practices and played limited minutes in one preseason game. I will judge him more after about 25-30 guys, but yes Rondo is the better player at this point.

I'm wondering what team is going to gut their roster for Butler.

I'm a little disappointed that I'll miss watching the Celtics vs Raps game tonight. Should be a good one.

Def loved the intensity and leadership I saw from JaVale, Bron and Rondo...they all should remain starters

Bron after one of our kids got knocked down and got off the ground...LeBron ran over and said loud enough for the whole team to hear .."when you are knocked down...stay down...one of your brothers will be right there to pick you up" team building, loved it....as for Ball...good luck on the bench kid...produce, grow or be gone...because Rondo is our pg...one game showed how far Ball is from the old man

I despise LeBron on the court, but whatever team he lands on you gotta love him...or hate having the best player on the planet on your team. :balls: Adore the man off the court.

I like him but unlike Kawhi (who is younger and better) he is not worth the haul Minny is trying to get for him. Minny is acting like its AD23 they're dangling out there, anyone else is not worth that price especially when they can sign him without gutting their roster in July.

One of many reasons for why you're a better specimen of a human being than I....loved him dearly when he was playing for my team and cheered as loudly as anyone in that arena the night he won his first ring, but cannot stomach his smug face in any other jersey. Hats off to you!
