    I don't need this as much as previous years, with all the new players on the team, I have plenty of motivation to watch all the games.
    Still, if any of you can add to what might be a waste of time otherwise, please help, with good reasons.

    Here are what I think are the least interesting teams to watch (in no specific order) I think any notable rookie would make a team interesting so correct me if I forget about any of them:

    Phoenix Suns
    Washington Wizards
    Charlotte Hornets
    Orlando Magic

    Maybe Bradley Beal is enough to see the Wizards. In any case, I think it's a good season for a lack of interesting teams. If you think I left one out, we can discuss it.

    The Clips, they don't have any players worth mentioning this year.

    Young team with a ton of lottery talent. Booker is capable of getting really hot.
    Wizards: Bradley Beal I guess....?
    Charlotte: you’ll get to see Jordan, which will be much more interesting than the game on the court.
    Magic: Gordon, Vucevic, Isaacs and MoBamba, they got an interesting mix of young talent. For an eastern conference team they’ll be in the playoff mix again.

    Phoenix is the one team I have no interest in. Living in Orlando, I will just end up watching them because that's what is on. I will definitely be at the March game wearing my Blazers jersey. I'm more excited to head down to Miami to watch Whiteside roast the Heat in January!

    Hawks,

    It will be interesting to see how #4 pick Hunter, and #10 pick Reddish fit with Trae Young and John Collins.

    Plus you get to see Crabbe & Turner.

    The Hawks were interesting last season to me. So this season it'll be interesting to see if their draft maneuvering paid off (for now). And you gave more reasons to watch them (which I thank you for).

    Does Jordan travel to all the road games? ( I did not know that).

    I doubt it, but Im not sure. I know he’s at most of their home games though.

    OK so there are no good reasons to see any of these teams. I'll have to list them as "dirt cheap".

    I'll occasionally watch another team play if an ex Blazer I liked is on that team....like Ed Davis or Will Barton and Mason Plumlee...Wolves have Vonleh, Layman and Napier so I'll watch them...other teams I don't bother unless we play them. Hawks now have Crabbe and ET....might check them out

    Orlando is still pretty interesting to me because of Jonathan Isaacs, specifically. When he was drafted, he had an almost Durant-level skinny build. Now he's supposedly bulked up and is primed to beast. And with Gordon, Vucevic, and Bamba, they've got more frontcourt talent than they know what to do with. Plus Chief is there!

    Phoenix really intrigues me because of the addition of Rubio. It's the first time Booker has had a legit PG to play with; Ayton too. Offensively, that could be one of the more exciting trios in the league if they gel. And that young forward rotation of Oubre, Bridges, Saric, and the (old) rookie sharpshooter Cam Johnson--lots of potential there.

    You could watch those teams to feel better about the Blazers if they struggle out of the gate. "I know it's bad, but at least I am not a Phoenix fan"

    How about if you don’t watch these team’s games, I’ll kick your ass.
