LOOK AT THE CLASSIC LOOKS LAST YEAR. INCREDIBLE MAKE-UP. LEIGH OF COURSE BEING WEIRD. NOT EVERYONE PLANS MONTHS IN ADVANCE FOR HALLOWEEN WHAT ARE LAST MINUTE NBA HALLOWEEN COSTUMES IF YOU HAVE A STOCKING HAT AND A CAMP ORDER IT’S EASY TO BE SHAQUILLE O’NEAL AT THE DUNK CONTEST YOU. CAN BE HOODIE MELO OR HOODIE MELAS AND BRAD BE JERSEY HUG YOUR BEST FRIEND AND YOU’RE A KERR IF YOU FEEL.>>WHAT A BRILLIANT IDEA. WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU SO LET US KNOW ON TWITTER WHAT ARE THE LAST MINUTE NBA COSTUMES. WE’LL HEAR FROM YOU LATER.>>GOT A FUN SHOW TODAY DISCUSSING OLD DIPOE’S HOT START AND PISTONS MATCH BUT WE’RE OFFICIALLY THREE WEEKS INTO THE NBA SEASON AND NOT EVERYTHING IS GOING AS PLANNED. IT’S SUPER EARLY BUT THAT HASN’T STOPPED SOME PEOPLE FROM WANTING TO HIT THE PANIC BUTTON. TRE HAS HUNKERED DOWN IN THE PANIC ROOM AND HE’S FREAKING OUT. TRE? CAN YOU HEAR US? >>SERIOUSLY FREAK OUT DOWN HERE SKEETS. WE’RE TWO WEEKS IN TO THE SEASON AND THEN B SA ALREADY UPSIDE DOWN. I’LL STAY BUNKERED DOWN UNTIL THINGS BLOW THEREFORE FEW THINGS MAKING ME NERVOUS RIGHT NOW. CAVS LOST AGAIN LAST NIGHT AT HOME TO THE KNICKS BY 59. THAT’S BAD ENOUGH BUT EVEN WORSE THE THIRD STRAIGHT LOSS FOUR OUT OF FIVE AND THEY HAVE A BOTTOM FIVE DEFENSE SO FAR THIS SEASON GUYS. I’M GETTING SUPER NERVOUS. IS IT TIME TO FOREST PANIC BUTTON?>>IS IT TIME?>>IS THIS A DIFFERENT CAVS TEAM?>>I’M IN. I’M PRESSING IT. I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M DOING IT.>>DON’T DO IT. YOU SAID IN THE INTRO PEOPLE ARE GETTING HEAD OF THEMSELVES. THIS IS THE SAME CASTING THAT WENT TO THE FINALS.>>I TRUE AND THEY HAVE JUST AS BAD DEFENSE AS THEY DID THEN. THE PROBLEM THIS YEAR IS THEIR OFFENSE ALSO STINKS. I KNOW LAST YEAR I TOLD YOU ALL SEASON LONG AT THIS TABLE. YOU WERE PANICKING ABOUT THE CAVS WHEN THEY HIT A RUT AND I SAID RELAX BITS DIFFERENT HERE. THE DEFENSE, STILL BRUTAL BUT PAIRING IT WITH THE OFFENSE THAT LOOKS JUST AS BAD AT TIMES IS THE WORRY HERE. AND THEY’RE STRUGGLING AGAINST THE EASIEST PART OF THE SCHEDULE. THESE ARE LOSSES TO THE KNICKS AND THE PELICANS AND THE NETS. THIS IS NOT YOUR SPURS AND WARRIORS AND ROCKETS. THESE ARE NOT GREAT TEAMS.>>HOW MUCH ARE THEY MISSING CURRY RIGHT NOW. HASN’T BEEN TALKED ABOUT BECAUSE OF THE TRADE. BUT THEY’RE MISSING KYRIE IRVING. HE GETS THINGS GOING FOR THEM AND HE’S NOT THERE. EVERYTHING FALL BACK TOS LEBRON. WHEN HE LACKADAISICAL ON DEFENSE THE GUYS ARE LIKE IF HE’S NOT TRYING HARD I DON’T HAVE TO AND THAT’S WHAT WE’RE SEEING AS WELL. LEBRON IS SO – >>YOU ARE GOING TO PUT THIS START ON LEBRON. I THINK EVERYONE ELSE HAS.>>YOU SEEN HIM ON DEFENSE AND HE’S DOING THE SAME THING. NOT LOCKED IN OR FOCUSED AND THAT CENT SENDS A MESSAGE TO THE OTHER GUY IF LEBRON PUT HORSE EFFORT IN.>>YOU GOT GUYS LIKE KEVON LOVE. WE GOT EXCITED WHEN HE WAS PUT IN AS THE CENTER. BUT HE’S BRUTAL ON DEFENSE AND WE KNOW THAT. ROSE.>>THEIR LINE-UP HAS CHANGED A BILLION TIMES. DEAN WADE STARTED AS THE STARTER AND WENT TO THE BENCH AND KYRIE IRVING TRADED FOR THOMAS THEY’RE STARTING THREE AND FOUR AND WENT FOUR AND THREE THE FIRST YEAR THAT LEBRON GOT TO CLEVELAND THEY WENT TO THE NBA FINALS I KNOW THEY’RE OLD AND LOOK EXTREMELY OLD AND GET DOWN IN GAMES BECAUSE THEY WANT TO SAVE THEIR GAS FOR GAMES BECAUSE THEY’RE OLD BUT THEY CAN’T DO THAT BECAUSE THEY’RE OLD. THAT’S A BIG PROBLEM BUT AT THE SAME TIME DEREK ROSE WAS OUT. THEY HAD THE THIRD STRING POINT GUARD. THEY HAVE HAD SO MANY LINE-UP CHANGES. HALF THEER IS NEW AND KYRIE IRVING SECOND BEST PLAYER, WHO CARES. IT REASONABLY WAY TOO EARLY TO PANIC BECAUSE AGAIN, THIS ENTIRE HALF THEER IS NEW AND THEY GOT THERE A FEW YEARS AGO.>>LOOK. LEBRON IS GOING TO BE LEBRON. GONE TO SEVEN STRAIGHT FINAL BUT CROWDER HAS TO HIT A SHOT AND J.R. AND ROSE AND WADE AND KORVER AND LOVE HAVE TO BE ABOVE AVERAGE. I GET IT. YOU’RE RIGHT IF THEY HAVE 42 WINS THEY’RE IN THE PLAYOFFS BUT WOULD YOU WANT TO TAKE ON BL BRON NO BUT THEY’RE OLD AND THERE’S ISSUE AND YOU’RE THROWING IN ISAIAH THOMAS. YOU AIN’T GETTING CAREER FROM HIM LIKE LAST YEAR.>>THAT’S THE WORRY SOME PART. IF THEY GET TO THE PLAYOFFS AND THE NBA FINALS AND GET SMACKED AROUND. LAST TIME HE WAS OLD TEAM LIKE DEAN WADE HE WENT FOR KYRIE IRVING. NEXT YEAR WORRY BUT RIGHT NOW THIS THE EAST.>>I GUESS TIME ONLY ONE PANICKING.>>BACK TO TRE. THERE’S A CREW FREAK OUT.>>>>I HAVE ENOUGH SNACKS TO LAST ONE OR TWO WEEKS BUT NOT TO BE OUT SLOPPIED BY THE CAVS BUT THE WARRIORS ARE TRYING TO FLIP THE SWITCH BUT THEY HAVE HAD FAULTY WIRING AND THE DUBS COULDN’T OVERCOME 26 TURNOVERS IN THE LOST TO THE PISTONS LAST NIGHT AND GOLDEN STATE 2 AND 2 AT HOME AND YOU THINK IT’S TIME TO SMASH THAT PANIC BUTTON?>>NO WAY. NO WAY.>>WE CAN’T DO IT. IT’S DIFFERENT THAN THE CAVS I THINK.>>YEAH.>>THE BEST, I GUESS TERM I’VE SEEN APPLIED TO THE WAY THE WARRIORS ARE PLAYING IS FROM THE MERCURY NEW WHENCE THEY SAID THEY’RE PLAYING SELF-DESTRUCTIVE BASKETBALL. YOU SEE THESE IN THE LOSSES AND ONE TO THE PISTONS AND THEY JUST ARE GIVING BALL TO THE OTHER TEAM. THEY’RE DOING THREE THINGS. TURNING IT OVER WAY TOO OFTEN AND THEY FOUL TOO OFTEN AND GETTING KILLED ON THE OFFENSIVE GLASS AND THAT’S THE ONLY ONE I WORRY THAT THEY CAN’T CLEAN UP. ALWAYS BIT OF ISSUE.>>WHEN THEY PASS THE BALL AND THEY’RE CARELESS THEY ALL START MAKING SILLY PASSES AND LAST NIGHT THEY GOT HAMMERED BY A TEAM COMING OFF A BACK-TO-BACK THAT AREN’T A GREAT ROAD TEAM AND THE WARRIORS. STEVE KERR I THINK WILL LIKE THIS BECAUSE IT SHOWS THAT THEY HAVEN’T GOT A CLEAR PATH STRAIGHT BACK AND WILL RUN UP TO 70 WINS. HE WILL POINT TO GUYS AND SAY YOU HAVE TO GET BETTER AND DO THIS OTHERWISE THIS ARE CONTINUE.>>THEY SHOT 57 PERCENT AND THEY LOST. THAT WAS A SEASON HIGH FOR THEM. LOST TWO OF THE THREE AFTER BEING UP DOUBLE DIGITS BECAUSE THEY’RE AMAZING AND YEAH, THEY’RE LAZY AND SLOPPY BUT THEY’RE HUMAN AND DRAYMOND GREEN SAID, WE’RE NOT COMING OUT WITH LASER FOCUS. THAT’S NOT WAY IT’S GOING TO BE. THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE BAD GAME BUT THEY’RE KICKING BUTT EVEN AS THEY LOSE.>>THAT LOSS TO THE PISTONS OVER THE WEEKEND THAT WAS A BUILD UP OVER A WEEK OF SLOPPY PLAY THOUGH THEY WERE PICKING UP THE WARRIORS THE WIZARDS GAME COME TO MIND. THEY STILL PULLED IT OUT IN THE END BUT THIS HAS BEEN BUILDING UP. YOU GET THEL EVENTUALLY.>>UNLIKE THE CAVS THAT ARE BAD ON BOTH ENDS THE WARRIORS ARE NUMBER 1 IN THE LEAGUE OFFENSIVELY AND THEN THEIR BAD DEFENSIVELY BUT NOT THE OLDEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE LIKE THE CAVS THEY STILL HAVE YOUNG LEGS.>>NO PAN WICK THE WARRIORS. ALL RIGHT TRE, FINAL ONE?>>ANOTHER DAY AND ANOTHER REASON TO BE WORRIED ABOUT MARKEL FULTZ. WE FOUND OUT HIS SHOULDER HAD BEEN INJECTED WITH FLUID. THE SIXERS SHUT DOWN FULTZ FOR THREE GAMES AND THE TEAM SAYS HE’S OUT INDEFINITELY WITH THE SHOULDER INJURY AND I’M BITING MY FINGERNAILS HERE IN THE PANIC ROOM IS IT TIME TO PUSH THE PANIC BUTTON?>>A ROOKIE. ARE YOU PANICKING OVER A 19 YEAR OLD? >>NOT EVEN THIS FRONT OFFICE THAT HANDLED THIS COULD PREVENT HIS SHOULDERS FROM BEING IMBALANCED. HOPEFULLY HE GETS RIGHT.>>THIS IS WHAT I SAID THEY SHOULD DO. NOW THAT YOU’VE GOT AS MUCH TIMES A YOU WANT TO GO GET HIM RIGHT AND REHABILITATED AND CONFIDENT IN AN EMPTY GYM SO HE’LL HAVE CONFIDENCE. DOESN’T MATTER HE CAN MISS 25 GAMES IF THEY NEED IT BUT GET HIM HEALTHY.>>THAT WEIRD BACK AND FORTH OF WHERE HE HURT FROM THE SHOOTING MOTION OR HE VICE VERSA THAT WHOLE SONG AND DANCE WE TALKED ABOUT HERE ON THE SHOW THAT HAS NOTHING REALLY TO DO WITH HIS FUTURE I BELIEVE.>>SOME PEOPLE THINK THIS COULD HAVE LONG-TERM EFFECT ON HIS PSYCHE OUT THERE.>>ONLY IF THEY KEEP TRYING TO FORCE ENERGY INJURY.>>AND BE BARELY TWO YEARS HE SAID? BEN SIMMONS IS THE ENTIRE YEAR AND THESE GUYS LOOK PRETTY SOLID. SO IF THE SAME WERE TO HAPPEN THIS YEAR THAT’S OKAY. HE’S 19-POINT 5 YEARS OLD.>>I DON’T KNOW WHY IT TOOK THE SIXERS THIS LONG TO ANNOUNCE THIS.>>THE IDEA HIS PSYCHE MIGHT BE DAMAGED HE UNFOLLOWED 2,000 PEOPLE ON TWITTER BECAUSE UNLIKE EMBIID HE PLAYED AND HE GOT A LOT OF LOSERS ON TWITTER COMING AT HIM SAYING YOU STINK AND DON’T SHOOT PROPERLY SO HE HADN’T ISSUE BUT DON’T READ YOUR REPLIES, MAN. JUST DON’T DO IT.>>BE OKAY IN THE PANIC ROOM?>>I’M FINE. I’M FINE.>>LOOK LIKE YOU’RE FREAKING OUT MAN.>>IT’S VERY SCARY DOWN HERE.>>WE’LL TAKE A BREAK AND TRY TO FIND WHERE HE IS AND WHEN WE RETURN. DID THE PACERS WIN THE PAUL GEORGE TRADE OR IS THAT CRAZY TALK TOO? THAT AND MORE IN THE UP/DOWN REPORT. COME ON BACK.>>END OF THE UP/DOWN REPORT FIGURING OUT WHERE WE STAND ON NBA DEVELOPMENTS AND ASK YOU TO DO THE SAME ON TWITTER. THUMBS UP OR DOWN. OLYDIPO ON FIRE THIS SEASON AND CONTINUED HIS HOT START VERSES THE CLIPPERS. STEP BACK THREE WITH TEN SECONDS LEFT TO COMPLETE A LATE RALLY AND GIVE THE VICTORY OVER SAN ANTONIO. OLD DIPOE WITH OTHERS HAVE PEOPLE WALKING BACK THEIR INITIAL THOUGHTS OF THE THUNDER PACERS TRADE. SO UP OR DOWN ON THE PACERS ACTUALLY HAVING WON THAT PAUL GEORGE TRADE? LEIGH? THUMBS UP? WOW.>>OBVIOUSLY I WAS IN THE OTHER CAMP.>>MOST PEOPLE WERE.>>BUT IF YOU THROW IN IS A BONIS I THINK RIGHT NOW THE PACERS FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT. PAUL GEORGE WAS GONE NO MATTER WHAT. SO SABOE AND PAUL GEORGE AND WE SEE HIM THRIVE AND NUMBER 2 IN THE DROP AND NEVER BEEN ABLE TO TAKE ON A GREAT BIG ROLE AND NOW HAS THAT OPPORTUNITY AND EXPERIENCED PLAYER.>>IT’S THE TEAM THAT HAS THE BEST PLAYER IN FOR TRADE SO YOU’RE GETTING TWO.>>WESTBROOK IS EXCITING. TO ME IT’S NOT WORTH THOSE TWO. IF HE LEAVES, THROW THAT THUMB DOWN. IF HE IS THERE THEN THROW THE THUMB UP.>>WEST BROOKE HADN’T SIGNED IT BUT THAT’S REASONS FOR WESTBROOK TO LOOK AT THE THUNDER SAYING I’M THE NUMBER 1 GUY AND IF YOU’RE ABLE TO DO ANYTHING THAT MAKES RUSSELL WESTBROOK STICK AROUND THAT’S HUGE.>>HE WAS HAVING A BABY.>>HE WANTED TO SIGN THAT EXTENSION.>>LOT OF EXCUSES ALL I KNOW IS HE SIGNED AFTER THEY GOT PAUL GEORGE.>>I FEEL LIKE IF YOU’RE THE INDIANA PACERS YOU HAVE TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT WHAT YOU GOT.>>THAT’S WHY WE HAVE THE QUESTION AND EVERYONE SAYS THEY GOT HOSED. I WOULD RATHER HAVE IS A BONIS AND OLD DIPOE.>>DETROIT PISTONS WON BACK-TO-BACK ROAD GAMES OVER IN THE DEFENDING CHAMPION DUBS. CURRENTLY TIED FOR THIRD IN THE LEAGUE IN WINNING PERCENTAGE. THE PISTONS LOOK GOOD HERE BOY BUT IS IT TOO EARLY? YOU UP OR DOWN ON THE PISTONS BEING FOR REAL?>>I THINK THEY’RE FOR REAL.>>YEAH.>>FOR REAL DOES THAT MEAN THEY’RE THE BEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE? PROBABLY NOT BUT THEY SHOULD BE A PLAYOFF TEAM SOMETHING WE’VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT THEM FOR THE FIVE STRAIGHT SEASONS BUT THE FIRST TIME THEY’VE BEEN EXCITING TO WATCH. THEY’RE PLAYING HARDER AND THERE’S CONSISTENCY AND ONLY GOT 23 STARTS OUT OF DRUMMOND AND HARRIS AND JACKSON AND THE THREE OF THEM IN THE LINE-UP AND THEY’VE BEEN IN THE LINE FROM THE FIRST GAMES THIS YEAR AND THEY LOOK BETTER AND SHOULD MAKE THE PLAYOFFS.>>WE’VE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS AND THAT’S WHY I CAN’T THIS EARLY. MAYBE LATER BUT RIGHT NOW THEY GOT THE CLIPPERS WHO HAVE NOT LOST. FULL CREDIT TO IT THEM AND THE WARRIORS THAT ARE PLAYING BADLY BY THEIR STANDARDS.>>AND THEY CAME BACK SO I WANT TO BELIEVE BUT I NEED MORE OF A SAMPLE SIZE BEFORE I CAN BUY IN TO THE PISTONS.>>THEY’RE OFF THE CATEGORY POINTS OFF TURNOVERS. THIRD SECOND CHANCE POINTS SECOND FAST-BREAK POINTS AND THEY’RE ON TOP IN EVERY DEFENSIVE CATEGORY. DO YOU BUY TWO YEARS AGO AND THEY MADE THE POST-SEASON AND EVERYONE EXPECTED THAT OR LAST YEAR THEY FELL OFF. THEY CAME IN THIS YEAR AND ARE READY. EVERYONE OF THE GUYS DRUMMOND IS BETTER FROM FREE-THROW LINE. HE’S SHOOTING FREE THROWS. STAN VAN GUNDY IS ASKING TEAMS TO FOUL HIM. HARRIS IS INTERESTING. UNLIKE JAZZ THAT ARE NOT A GREAT TEAM AND THEY HAVE SORT OF GUYS THAT ARE 3-12 THEY ARE GOOD AND DON’T HAVE A START AND TOBIAS CAN GET YOU 20. HAS HE GROWN? ONLY 25 YEARS OLD AND HE’S GROWN INTO A GUY THAT CAN CLOSE FOR THEM. HE IS LEADING THEIR TEAM IN SCORING AND SHOOTING BALL WELL. I THINK EVERYONE IS WORKING TOGETHER. THIS THE EASTERN CONFERENCE THEY BETTER MAKE THE SEASON.>>THEY’RE STARTING LINE-UP HAS BEEN ATROCIOUS. SECOND WORSE FOR THE LEAGUE. WHEN A RESERVE GETS BACK ON THE HUMAN TACKLE BOX IS GOOD. FINAL ONE HERE ON FRIDAY NIGHT, HEATED ALTERCATION BETWEEN THE WIZARDS BRADLEY BEAL AND DRAYMOND GREEN LED TO BOTH BEING EJECTED AND PLAYERS FROM BOTH TEAMS TRIED TO BREAK UP THE KERR IF YOU FEEL THERE BUT MAY HAVE MADE THINGS WORSE. BE WAS FINED $50,000 WHILE GREEN WAS HIT WITH A $25,000 FINE. KELLI JUNIOR WAS FINED $15,000 AND TWO WIZARDS PLAYERS SUSPENDED FOR ONE GAME EACH BECAUSE THEY LEFT THE BENCH. SO DRAYMOND GREEN IS NOT HAPPY. CURIOUS WHAT YOU THINK. UP AND DOWN FOR THE DUST UP? DID THEY GET RIGHT OR WRONG?>>I’M TEAM GREEN. WHY SHOULD HE GET FINED? BECAUSE HE GOT HUGGED?>>HE INITIATED THAT WITH THAT LITTLE ELBOW AND BE RESPONDED. THAT’S A WRESTLING MATCH. THE NBA HAS TO FINE THEM.>>PENALIZED FOR FAILING TO DISENGAGE.>>HE’S ZOVLD BUT IF THAT’S THE CASE THEN SO DOES KELLI. HE WAS SUSPENDED THIS CALENDAR YEAR FOR GETTING IN A FIGHT WITH HIM SO I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW HE’S FINED LESS.>>THAT CREATES MORE OF A FEUD WHEN PEOPLE PILE IN ON THAT. THEY WERE DANCEING THEY LEFT THAT ALONE THEN ALL THE OTHER GUYS WOULD NOT HAVE COME IN.>>HE DID HIT DRAYMOND IN THE HEAD.>>I FEEL THEY RULED THAT INCIDENTAL IF YOU LOOK BEFORE THAT DRAYMOND GIVES HIM A JAB SO LET’S HERE FROM THE PEOPLE OUT THERE. COMING UP NEXT WEEKEND WHOOP ISES. DON’T GO ANYWHERE.>>FOR SOME WEEKEND WHOOPSIES.>>JOHNATHAN SIMMONS IN AHEAD WILL LOCK. THAT’S TERRANCE ROSS! THEN THINK HE FINDS JOHNATHAN. GIVE HIM A HUG.>>FRIDAY NIGHT, NICS WITH THE GAME IN HAND. SHOT CLOCK RUNNING DOWN HERE AND ROOKIE, HERE. GOING TO GIVE THOMAS. IT AS TEAM TURNOVER NONETHELESS.>>LOOKING FOR MORE BALL MOVEMENT THIS YEAR.>>JIMMY BUTLER GOES DOWN AND JUST GOT OVER AN UPPER RESPIRATORY INFECTION SO IT’S UNDERSTANDABLE HE WANTS REST.

  2. CLE IS NOT MISSING KYRIE STFU WITH THAT!!!!!! THEIR DEFENSE PROBLEM IS JUST AS BAD WITH AND WITHOUT HIM!!!!!!!! HIS 25&5 ON 40% SHOOTING DOESNT MEAN EVERY 3 WILL BE CONTESTED

  3. Cavaliers offense stinks?? … after 1000 years of nba he still don’t understand a fuck… and even a children understand that 2017/2018 NY is stronger than Melo era.. now they’re are a team. Pff Sometimes I want quit with this show. Leigh Ellis is only one understand about Nba basketball

  4. The Draymond Green – Bradley Beal thing is kinda ridiculous. Fining and giving a tech to Green for something stupid that Beal did sets a bad precedent. Basically tells the league that hey, send a player to flagrant foul Green, he'll fight back and you can get him ejected that way. New strategy: send your unused bench players to headlock Green to get him out of the game. Hack-A-Dray strategy incoming.

    Green didn't elbow Beal beyond any normal boxing out jostling. Nothing happened until Beal decided he wanted to put his arm around Draymond's head. Then after that, you see Beal making a concerted effort to drag Draymond to the ground.

    Last point: What is Oubre Jr. doing in the NBA? That guy isn't play ball, he's just there to fight. This isn't even the first time he's done this. He ran in to jump into the dogpile and he punches Klay Thompson? How is this guy not heavily fined and suspended for multiple games? This doesn't even fly in the NHL.

  5. You guys have said that Fultz doesn't need this kind of attention to give him a bad start to his career a few times already. Yet you keep bringing him up. Still love the show, HEYOO! from
    Australia.

  6. To me Curry, Klay and Durant are all scoring the ball well. My question is who is next up. Is it Nick Young, Iggy, David West, McCaw or Livingston? They need bench production, we don't really expect it from Draymond and Zaza

  7. LeBron responsible for Cavs struggling? GTFOH! Though I understand where you're coming from, Leigh (team is looking to him as the leader), LeBron has had some fantastic games and done the heavy lifting logging heavy minutes.
    What might be interesting is looking back at DRose and DWade having signed for the minimum: Both haven't been great but if you look at it from a cost-efficient/salary perspective you really can't complain. Same goes for Jeff Green.
    The guys I'm really looking at here are JR SMITH who has been abysmal so far, TRISTAN THOMPSON being a complete no-show last game and not good the other games and TYRONN LUE who's looking pretty helpless so far and without a plan. He tried something, benched Thompson and JR Smith – their performances so far seem to have proven him right – nevertheless it didn't work for Kevin Love or the team. Furthermore it looks like it made those guys perform worse and JR Smith is back to being a starter – on the initiative, unselfishness and maturity of Dwyane Wade. Offense looks bad, defense looks bad but the roster looks freaking loaded. You'll get some time 'cause you got new pieces to integrate but I wouldn't be surprised at all if Lue doesn't make it to the end of this season.
    Sidenote: some people critical of Kyrie's trade request might wanna reconsider…

  8. Oladipo/Sabonis for PG: If you ask whether Indiana won the trade the answer should be about whether they took a good/the best offer for Paul George. Because there is zero doubt this was a winning deal for OKC. Oladipo wasn't a fit next to Westbrook whereas PG13 is the perfect player next to him, likely got you Melo and helped Russ to sign his extension. Sabonis was a good young prospect, well, you gotta give something to get something…
    From a Pacers view given their performances it's definitely a winning deal too. Whether it was the best, I'm not sure about that 'cause Pacers still aren't going anywhere in terms of contending. Nevertheless it's definitely a big step forward compared to losing PG for nothing, you either got good players to build for the future or players with high trade value to go in a different direction. Whatever they'll do in the future, Pacers look fantastic so far and Myles Turner isn't even playing

  9. Cavs just waiting for everyone to be healthy. Warriors just have championship hangover now. Both team will go on 15-20 win streak around Dec to Jan

  10. Im here again wondering wen u gunna mention me lol #thestarters im here every episode i watch them all ull see muaaaaahhhaaaa

  11. Cmon Leigh you are once again an idiot. Guess it's because of you rage… WHAT elbow? that was straight up basketball box out, what the f-in elbow u talking about?

  12. Leigh looking for any excuse to defend Bradley Beal's cheap shot. Draymond didn't throw an elbow, that's called "boxing out."

  13. The guy with glasses tells the truth, it's on LeBron. He is not playing defense and other guys see that. But the other 2 guys on the show are like "LeBron, it can't be his fault" LOL

  14. The Warriors having issues is obviously fake, the NBA finally told them to tone it down a bit or they are going to have to do something about it. So they decided to "struggle".
