    I can see that.  I'm not counting out the Lakers though.  Don't sleep on the Nuggets either.  Watch them this year.

    Steph can't do it all by himself so they are a team limping in to the playoffs.

    I so wish Bradley Beal would become a Laker...  Do some more trading Lakers!

    Zion will not win the ROY unless they pull a Philly and sit him for the whole year.  Remember I said this.  He lasts 5 years in the league at best.  That knee won't hold up... Sad too cause he is a beast.

    Most likely, he'll miss about 25 games, he'd have to be utterly dominant when he comes back and its likely they'll ease him back so his first several games will be short minutes. So almost like a half season lost.

    Pelicans werent winning anything this year so its more of a loss for the fans.  He had an unbelievable preseason tho.  Glad the injury isnt a long term concern.  The Pels have the best training/medical staff in the league so he should be good.

    Sixers are good. Everyone else sucks. Quote that! Haha. Fuck those 4 bounces.

    Sadly, I have a feeling Zion's weight will be an issue.  Hope I'm wrong.
    Alright, alright, alright!

    He is 38lbs heavier than LeBron and Bron is an amazing specimen of an athlete.

    Didn't see the game last night but after watching a 90 second clip of highlights, you would've thought the Lakers won by 30. Also, the stats from the lakers bench, yikes.

    Yeah, I think the weight might be an issue too. Wonder if the Pelicans, behind closed doors, might lobby for him to drop 25 pounds or so. With as explosive as he is, those extra pounds are going to wreak havoc on his knees.

    The league is wide open right now with all the free agency moves and injuries.

    I think they are in the running but 76ers and Bucks will be good too.  

    Toss up for me.  I'm not counting out Dallas either.

    Washington vs Dallas is a must watch when you have games like Bos vs Philly and Den vs Por?

    A game featuring a sure fire lottery team vs a team that might be an 8 seed if all comes together?

    Come on, they have no shot at the title, they'll be fortunate to make the playoffs in the west then if they do they'll get steamrolled in round 1.

    Third knee injury in 3 years...
    None of them were ACL related tho. Sprains and now a tear that can totally heal.  I was impressed by how deep NOLA is.  They’ll be a force in two years.

    Dallas, yes.  Doncic and Porzingas should be a fun duo to watch.  Don't hate.  That Doncic is good, he can ball.

    Right, but they have nothing beyond those 2, and Porzingis' health is always a question. To mention them in championship contention is silly.

    I think it's wide open.  Everyone has a chance this year, lol.

    Who's the lottery team in Was/Dallas?  They both will make the playoffs this year.

    Lebron will be coasting all year until the playoffs.  He will be saving his body for that.
