    What are you doing in my chalet Prestigious

    That's my prediction as well, except maybe/probably Blazers instead of Rockets, still with Clippers advancing

    We were potentially a 9-10 seed this year with Marcus Morris. With Mook, definitely a lock for that 8 seed this year!

    Nothing has ever been more on brand than Grayson Allen picking up two consecutive flagrant in a summer league game

    What’s so interesting about these new teams is the matchups.

    Small teams:
    Rockets: PF Tucker (6’6) C capela (6’10)
    Clippers: if they do start Shamet then one of PG/Leonard will match up with power forwards. Their big men are reduced to Zubac, Harrell (6’8”), Green (6’9)

    Big teams:
    Lakers: will most likely start AD (6’10/Cousins 6’11) with McGee off the bench.
    Blazers have Whiteside, Nurkic, and Collins all 7 footers but who starts at PF to guard small PFs. They also lack depth at the wings.
    Philly will start Horford and Embiid

    Idk it’s going to be interesting seeing the match ups and how teams strategize going small or big. I feel like these teams need a game of go-fish to balance out their rosters lol

    I have a hard time agreeing that Chris Paul is overrated. He's been an incredible point guard both offensively and defensively for a long time (discounting the last few years). He's a great player. His playoff performances though have left a lot to be desired, but a lot of players struggle in the playoffs. I dunno, I see him as the 2nd best point guard of this generation, personally.

    This is what is going to make the NBA so fascinating next year. We have some teams who still are "small" and then teams who have tall mofos for days. Gonna be crazy to watch the strategies.

    My point exactly, he’s overrated and has underachieved expectations his whole career. First PG is Steph easy, and theres a lot of guys I’d rather have over Paul easy, even in his prime.

    @team_newton Prestigious

    If we're talking about this generation of basketball players, who are you talking about specifically? Just curious.

    music and baseball.

    Chris Paul is one of the best players all-time in my book.

    His stats in the playoffs are actually pretty good too.

    He’s top 4-5 when it comes to PG’s all time too

    Idk how money would work in a trade but pairing Adams, Paul, and Butler on the Heat would be interesting.

    Salary-wise, CP/Adams for Dragic/Winslow/Olynyk/Waiters works

    But not sure why OKC would want to give up Adams if Miami has no picks to send back
