    Let the preseason begin! Markelle Fultz is starting and already has 8 points of 4/5 shooting. Boston finally plays a starting lineup of Kyrie/Gordon/Jaylen/Jayson/Al. Both teams look good on paper.

    Looks like the Celtics are DOA. Can't beat Hornets in preseason. Gonna be a long year. I'll be surprised if they make playoffs.

    I guess on the east coast 5 o clock was like 6 hours ago, so this post makes sense when I look at it that way. :)

    Kip Winger is still around? Man, when I was in high school, he was like Bon Jovi-lite.

    What the hell kind of crazy algorithm is ESPN using. According to them, Tony Parker was one of 2 "top performers" in the game:
    http://www.espn.com/nba/scoreboard/_/date/20180928
    and it lists him with 1 rebound and 1 assist. Is that Top Performance? A check of the boxscore and it ends up he came off the bench and played only 9 minutes and missed all of the shots he took.

    Maybe Parker's mom works for ESPN?

    Looks like Warriors gave it their all (KD/Curry/Klay were 10/16 from 3) and still couldn't beat lowly Wolves at home. Gonna be a long season for them. I remember, after threepeat, the 2002-03 Lakers played below .500 for half of the season. And the Warriors have been to FOUR straight Finals. They're about to feel a burn. I don't see them winning more than 45-48 games.

    That's fine. I displayed some knowledge in that post. You probably don't remember the 02-03 season, so I'm sharing some perspective with this board.
