Lakers over 51.5 looks damn good.  I see them and LAC being around 60.

It'll be interesting to check back in a year and see how this holds up. A whole lot is going to change between now and then, but this is how ESPN sees it today:

 

 

 

didn't need to wait a year to see some real changes:

That’s a lot of dunking. I’m sure he’ll develop more to his game like Blake did.

The best thing I actually saw was that spinning move inside and pass to to the open guy in the corner. That’s how he’s really going to help them this year. Draw everyone inside and have open guys.

Dunk are awesome, and he looks like a beast...but you gotta do more than that. He looks like he can.

Yeah that was a very nice play.   He had another one that was similar where he made a nice move and found Ingram in the other corner.  He looked good last night.

Zion now 21-25 with 1 three pointer in the last 2 games. Defenses will adjust but his range will extend too. Dude is the real deal. 

In other news... AD is already hurt.

This isn't sustainable though.

I don't think Jaxson Hayes could have landed in a better situation. The Pelicans should be really good, possibly elite, for the next 5 years.

It's going to take awhile before they are really good or what's more elite, especially playing in the West. They have some nice young talent, and a really good floor leader (coming off his first ever season without injuring himself), but just making the playoffs should be considered good for them going forward.

I could see them winning the division in Year 3-4. Harden and Westbrook will be 33-34 by then. Agreed, the West, and the Southwest Division is definitely stacked though.

I could see the Pelicans being like the 2018-2019 Nets. Good young team that makes the playoffs. Hayes, Zion, Alexander-Walker, and Lonzo Ball on rookie deals for a few more years. JJ Reddick was a good veteran pick up on a short term deal. Maybe Brandon Ingram is good?

My point is the Pelians have a talented, cheap roster right now that should be able to attract a superstar or two in 2021. Not bad for a team in the smallest market in the NBA.

NOP with Zion and Texas Hayes will probably lead the NBA in dunks.

this is awesome. Just when you couldn't laugh at these entitled players enough already. Maybe if the players have toddlers or babies I can see this, but surely they can afford a late night nanny so the player can get the right amount of shut eye. If its late night at the clubs, then fuck them.

Bet they're not as sleep-deprived as the Uighurs in the Chinese concentration camps.

Seriously, it's been an embarrassing couple weeks for the NBA.  This sleep deprivation article is just the icing on a cake.  Yeah, bitch about not getting enough sleep when you're making eight figures, playing ball, and then hitting the clubs after the game while the regular working and middle class often work two jobs just to get by.

Believe in something...unless it costs you $$$$.

Being a good SJW apparently doesn't extend to supporting democracy or challenging true dictators if it means losing some money.

Chairman Xi would be proud.

This is what the press is for. Find the people with the most to lose and ask them their thoughts. I bet if you polled all of the owners even fertitta would say they want morey gone (not because of sour grapes on winning either). The only difference is that morey is the only reason fertitta will ever win and he knows it so he keeps him hoping things blow over.

Between LeBron Kerr and Pops it’s like the twilight zone. 
 

I couldn’t even imagine a more tone deaf hypocritical response even being possible.

Yep, just keep his mouth shut.  He shouldn't keep his mouth shut about social issues in general, but if you're going to basically toe the line with really support of china, you shouldn't really be saying anything about stuff here either.

Shut up and Dribble really should be a mandate for the NBA at this point. Just drama otherwise.

You mean a near billionaire athlete really doesn't care much about social justice around the world and only cares about the money? No way!!

Why people think these athletes/entertainers that live in their own bubbles outside of all the injustice going on really give a damn and actually mean what they type when incidents happen is beyond me. They have a following so they know they need to give off the illusion they actually care but they don't. If it fucks with their money, they will shut that shit down quick. The 'shut up and dribble', as fucking stupid of a comment that was, actually came to fruition in front of our eyes. Amazing.

Amazing how one seemingly innocuous tweet exposed  NBA executives, owners and players as nutless hypocritical cowards.

I just love how the owners and Morey and Fertita in particular are just sitting back and letting LBJ be the whipping boy for this issue.    Yeah he does some business in China but shit the whole league does.   None of the owners seem to be getting called out like one individual player is.    I'm sure they are pleased about that in this time of player empowerment.
