    Default NBA 2016-2017 Regular Season Discussion

    Today is season opener three games today let's get this thread started

    New York Knicks would the debut of Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah take on the defending champions Cleveland Cavs. We got two young teams playing against each other the Blazers vs Jazz and gen we got the Spurs fuse on the Warriors with Durant make his debut with his new team. That game should be a good one

    Melo is on fire but the rest of the Knicks are in true early season form so far.

    Yeah he did a couple of nice things early but they fell apart after the first few minutes. Brandon Jennings looks terrible.

    So many awful passes by the point guards by Jennings and Rose, they look so drunk with the ball.

    Rose is attacking with no fear which is a good sign, but people are going to be nervous every time he drives to the basket like that. Knicks went on a nice run there, taking advantage of LeBron on the bench.

    Knicks defense and their bench will be a major concern all season long and of course health too

    It was only a matter of time before the Cavs started hitting more of these wide open threes.

    Knicks only defence is Porz waving his long ass arms around.

    Kyrie Irving is a beast.

    The Cavs are going to be the top dawgs, but I think the Knicks will work their way to the top. This is their first game with all their big guys together and it's felt good to watch them. Sucks it had to start with the Cavs and all this excitement going on in Cleveland, but I'm very happy about this season for the Knicks. I expect greatness.

    Pop and Steve Kerr really bringing the heat in the tie game tonight.

    Warriors trailing by 11 at the end of one - time to blow it up?

    It's looked awkward what I've seen, but switching between basketball and baseball is jarring.

    Everyone will be talking nonsense about them being better before KD but I think it's much more about Bogut not being there.

    I've seen plenty of missed open shots so I'm not concerned with the warriors, but size like the Spurs have will be trouble. I like Reggie saying they'll face this kind of size nightly... umm, no they won't. Gasol/Aldridge/Leonard is a bit of an anomaly in the league.

    Spurs playing real nice, every time the Warriors make a run they have found an answer. Jonathan Simmons with the LeBron-esque block on Curry giving him flashbacks.

    GSW crowd is real obnoxious.

    I was impressed with the Spurs refusing to let the Warriors have any garbage time and really driving that win home. San Antonio's game plan of slowing things down against the Golden State starters worked very well (Pop called a timeout after almost every three-pointer Curry hit in the first half to stop him from getting on a run) and then they absolutely destroyed the Warriors bench.

    Absolutely hilarious moment just then with a classic Philly fan in the front row flipping Westbrook the bird. He'll drop 45 on them now.

    76ers actually look really quite good, add Simmons to this and they will be super to watch.

    Westbrook is playing great but he needs his teammates to shoot better. Oladipo has been terrible, -15 at halftime.
