    I love Mobley, and in general believe that he (or Scottie Barnes) will very likely be the best player 5 years in (remembering that Mighty Mouse won ROY easily over Kevin Garnett and Rasheed), but let's let Cade Cunningham at least play one game first...

    What's surprising is Suggs' slow start. Maybe playing next to Cole "Ball hog" Anthony is holding him back?

    He's another one that I was underwhelmed by last year. I could definitely see the potential, but he looked a few years away from being ready. I wouldn't expect him to have a big impact this year.

    I agree with you.
    I saw that list organized by scoring and was like… No, no, noooo.
    Mobley is SPECIAL on defense and isn’t a complete nutcase on offense.

    Congrats LaMarcus! In a just world he would have been congratulated by his teammates Brandon Roy and Greg Oden on the 5-time champion Trail Blazers.

    Lots of low scoring games this year with new officiating changes. I don’t mind though. Let them play

    Detroit finally won a game! And Cade Cunningham played! Although these two things weren't much related - Detroit went on a run with Cory Joseph at the point, and Cade shot like shit (but also made several hustle plays).

    Not saying they’ll win the title but I wouldn’t be surprised if they get the #1 seed in the East. They’re deep as hell and have a superstar level #1 option.
