Jeremy Lin got injured and out for the whole season..I hate these injuries and players getting out for the season.. =(

Yeah, that one might have been harder to see than Hayward. I'm pretty sure Dan Gilbert made a few with the devil. The Warriors better watch out.

Who should i bet on for MVP?

LBJ 5/1
K Leonard 5/1
westbrook 8/1
K durant 8/1
Harden 9/10
Curry 10/1

maybe LBJ because he's simply the best player.
Or Leonard because he's the only one not playing with another star (and he deserves a MVP trophy)

What are the odds on Giannis?

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Oct 2017 14:22:56
After a quick search, I saw Giannis at 11 to 1 and John Wall at 33 to 1. Those are probably the best value picks. If I had to pick my favorites for MVP, I would go 1 Leonard 2 Lebron 3 Giannis significant gap and then 4 Harden 5 Westbrook gap 7 Wall 8 Durant 9 Curry gap to the point of no chance 10 Irving.

Agree0 Disagree1

Vegas has giannis 8 to 1.

LBJ 5
K Leonard 5

Westbrook 8
Giannis 9
Harden 9
Curry 15
Irving 15
A Davis 23
J Wall 29
P George 41
C Paul 41
Towns: 51
Butler 67
Cousins 67
Embiid 67
G Hayward 412.

If you want to make a safe bet, split your money 3 ways between Lebron, Leonard, and Giannis. Out of those 3 I think you would have a better than 3/ 4 chance of one winning. So at an average of al little over 1 to 2 payout, it would be a great bet.

How do you think Boston responds to the Hayward injury? Do they stay the course and hope that Brown and Tatum can fill the void, go out and try to get a veteran sf, or possibly take a step back and try to make the roster younger now that they don't have much hope of getting out of the East?

If Hayward won't be 100 percent by the end of next year or even worse he'll never be the same player again, I think trading a guy like Horford, might not be a bad idea. The injury could push the Celtics time line back a few years and at that time Horford won't be much of an asset.

If they expect Hayward to be fine by the start of next season, I think going out and trying to get a cheap veteran that can score would be ideal.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Oct 2017 02:18:38
To stay compettitive with CLE i would say trade to get deeper. Get some vet wings for the picks. Start Irving, Brown, Tatum, Morris and Horford.

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Oct 2017 08:55:54
Paul Pearce maybe as a band aid fix.

Agree1 Disagree2

19 Oct 2017 09:53:38
The celtics still can play, Tatum, J Brown and Smart on the wings, so a cheap veteran should be enough.

I Agree, they should trade Horford. He's great for the team, but he's already 31.

imo, they need a center, my first choice would be Gobert for Horford+ LA pick+ Clippers pick + Memphis pick
And they should try to get Whiteside if the first one doesn't work out.
Whiteside for Horford+ clippers pick+ Memphis pick.

Agree1 Disagree1

Hayward's ankle got broken..
I hope the allstar format changed on choosing the 14 players regardless on their conference even just for this season only.. starters still voted by 5 player east-west format..

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Oct 2017 01:41:16
What a devastating opener for Celtics? smh

Gordon Hayward suffers a gruesome injury. Heart and prayers are with him.

Agree3 Disagree0

18 Oct 2017 05:49:57
Praying for his recovery.

Agree2 Disagree1

18 Oct 2017 11:08:15
Yeah, that was rough. I'm just hoping there isn't anything career threatening there. Hopefully he can be back to 100 percent by sometime next year.

If you could combine 2 borderline playoff teams and make them a championship contender, who would be the best?

West
NOLA/POR

Line-up

Pg Lillard/Rondo
Sg McCollum/Holiday
Sf Harkless/Allen
Pf Davis/Aminu
Ce Cousins/Nurkic

DAL/MEM

Pg Conley/Smith Jr
Sg Matthews/Curry
Sf Barnes/Parsons
Pf Nowitzki/Green
Ce Gasol/Noel

DEN/POR

Pg Lillard/Murray
Sg McCollum/Harris
Sf Chandler/Aminu
Pf Millsap/Faried
Ce Jokic/Nurkic

MEM/DEN

Pg Conley/Mudiay
Sg Harris/Murray
Sf Chandler/Parsons
Pf Millsap/Green
Ce Gasol/Jokic

East

I think East aside from BOS and CLE are almost all borderline playoff team

WSH/MIL

Pg Wall/Brogdon
Sg Beal/Middleton
Sf Giannis/Porter
Pf Parker/Morris
Ce Gortat/Monroe

Agree2 Disagree2

I'd say Washington, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Boston, and Toronto would make the playoffs in either conference.

Obviously if your only goal is to win a title this year Portland and NOs would give you the best chance, but they would be fairly bad defensively. I don't think they could be Cleveland or the top teams in the West.

If you're goal is to give you're team the best chance to win a championship at some point, I think you go Phoenix and Philly. They would have a ton of players that could eventually grow in to allstars and left over young talent to go out and add legitimate allstars now.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Oct 2017 18:08:17
I like the Port/ Denver combo
Who would start?
Nurkic or Jokic?

Agree2 Disagree1

17 Oct 2017 20:29:20
Are you really thinking over who is a better player from Jokic and Nurkic? Jokic is better player in every single game segment and yes i mean every single. Jokic will be a top 10 player in year or two and Nurkic's biggest reach will be playing some folk music during warm ups.

Agree1 Disagree1

18 Oct 2017 08:30:17
Jokic is better :-) :-) :-)
But that's the reason Denver traded Nurkic, he wouldn't be a benchplayer.

Agree0 Disagree1

What team could give I thomas a max contract?

Agree4 Disagree1

17 Oct 2017 08:14:49
Maybe Knicks or bulls.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Oct 2017 15:35:07
If Lebron stays, Cleveland is his best hope for a contract close to the max. He's almost thirty, so unless it's on a short deal, most younger teams that will have space probably won't have a ton of interest and it's hard to imagine current competitive teams being willing to carve out a max contract to sign him unless they possibly strike out else where.

Update on power rankings per conference:

West:
1. Golden State Warriors (duh they are the 2017 NBA Champs and they got deeper bench than before)
2. Houston Rockets (1st i want to put okc ahead houston but the rockets style of play are much better than thunder)
3. Oklahoma City Thunder
4. San Antonio Spurs (huge respect for coach pop and the klaw)
5. Minnesota Timberwolves (Trio of Butler-Towns-Wiggins plus coach thibbs)
6. Los Angeles Clippers (still have a good playmaker teodosic even without CP3)
7. Denver Nuggets (hard to predict this team and with well equipped players)
8. Portland Trailblazers (Lillard-McCollum vs Davis-Cousins, Blazers duo are better team contributors than Pelicans duo)
9. New Orleans Pelicans
10. Memphis Grizzlies (better than Jazz because jazz has no players to lead them in scoring)
11. Utah Jazz
12. Dallas Mavericks (coach rick is one of the best coach in the nba and almost all lakers players are very raw)
13. Los Angeles Lakers (better roster than the last 2)
14. Phoenix Suns (Bledsoe and Booker, 2 players that makes them better than Kings)
15. Sacramento Kings

East:
1. Cleveland Cavaliers (some people said this team got weaker and some others said they got stronger, despite of those opinions one name make this team on top, LeBron James)
2. Boston Celtics (Trio of Irving-Hayward-Horford makes this team sacrier)
3. Washington Wizards (despite of lack of good bench player, Wall&Beal plus Porter teamwork are better than Bucks & Raptors)
4. Milwaukee Bucks (one word "Giannis")
5. Toronto Raptors (not much a fan of Lowry-DeRozan duo but still they are a good team)
6. Miami Heat (better chemistry than Hornets and Sixers)
7. Charlotte Hornets (with better roster than last year)
8. Philadelphia 76ers (trust the process, Embiid-Simmons-Fultz)
9. Detroit Pistons (it depends on how good Drummond will be)
10. Orlando Magic (comparing the roster of Orl & Ind, this team has better bench players)
11. Indiana Pacers
12. New York Knicks (Porzingis all the way)
13. Brooklyn Nets (DRussell brings hope to this team)
14. Atlanta Hawks (last 2, both teams got the worse lineup/roster but Coach Bud is better than Coach Fred)
15. Chicago Bulls
