    I think the Celtics and Warriors win tonight. Other prediction, we see Westbrook cry for the first of many times this season when he doesn't get "enough" PT.

    Going in, I am truly interested in this Green/Poole situation in Dubland. That could have ramifications around the entire league.
    Usually, these things are more hype than anything else, but there is something there on this one....
    As the Warriors go, so goes the rest of the league. The title is once again theirs to win, or lose.

    I unfortunately agree, but think 3-3 is possible as well, depending on if things click.

    Here are some rankings of one guy's top 100. Not even sure exactly what his criteria are:
    The rankings, compiled by national NBA writer Ben Golliver, are meant to assess each player’s relative value without regard to his specific role or teammates.

    Among the factors considered: last year’s performance (as judged by traditional per-game statistics and advanced metrics), current health, injury history, age, consistency, contributions to winning, ability to make teammates better, off-court concerns, postseason performance and offensive and defensive impact.
    Top five: Giannis, Curry, Jokic, Durant Doncic.

    Lillard #10, just ahead of Jimmy Butler at 11. Grant 74, Simons 86, Nurk 97 (two behind Christian Woods). Other guys of interest: Siakam at 23 and Anuunoby at 56, CJ McCollum at 54,

    So, we have only one player in top 70.

    Oddly for you, that seems optimistic.

    And I can say with all due respect that a lot of our players thoroughly deserve MORE G-League experience

    Harden looks like he’s slimmed down and more defined.
