Season starts soon. Might as well get this going. Preseason games have started as of today.


Lakers lost to the Nets at home today. LeBron and Westbrook didn't play. AD played limited minutes.

Not sure whether to keep this in the offseason thread or to switch to this one.

At least now we know the monetary value of his "beliefs".

Good to see the Raptors back in their home arena after playing in Florida all last season.

Lots of empty seats, but granted it's preseason.

Trevor Ariza has ankle surgery 3 days ago. He’s out at least 2 months. Posting it here since it affects the regular season.

Well, this news sucks



Ariza is out and now THT is out for an extended period of time. Read that Malik Monk has a groin injury as well.

Kyrie is no longer allowed to practice or do any team activities until he has at least the first shot. Nets GM sent out a statement today.

I can't keep up with the Kyrie stuff. I thought he was just allowed to practice due to it being a private facility?

The team and coaches had a meeting and decided if he was only going to be available part time they didn't want him with the team.

Season officially starts tomorrow.


Lakers bring back another former Laker



I do think this is a good pick up. They got some injuries to Monk, Nunn, Ellington and THT is out like 2+ months. Bradley is a good defender and can hit the occasional big 3. And he knows Vogel's system.

Trevor Ariza is also injured, but yeah, otherwise it's a weird thing.

Apparently Bradley is on a non-guaranteed contract. So his stay with the Lakers will likely be temporary until all the bodies get healthy again.

Itís funny how quickly a career can decline in this league. Bradley was the starting PG on the Lakers team that won the Championship as recently as March 2020.

Well, he was one of their starting PGs until he didn't make the bubble. I believe the only holdovers from that team are Davis, Lebron, and THT (with Dwight and Bradley now on the team but having left)

Ben Simmons suspended 1 game for conduct detrimental to the team. Reports say that Doc Rivers threw him out of practice.

I think Ben Simmons decided to get lessons from Jimmy Butler.

Again, the NBA is the best soap opera.

There was a video where Ben was "practicing" while his cell phone was in his pocket.

Re: The Official 2021-22 NBA Season Thread -- 82 games and full capacity

Here's my post from 2 weeks ago:

"I'm still baffled by Philly's moves during this situation. He has made it abundantly clear he doesn't want to play there so why would you want to force someone who wants nothing to do with your team to continue playing there contract or not. Paying a guy a maximum contract who is going to be giving your team the bare minimum effort makes zero sense. They should take the best offer they can get and move on with their lives. If one of my employees at work came up to me and said I hate working here and I refuse to do it anymore the last thing I would say to them is "well you signed a contract" so tough luck. I would not want someone working for me who is that miserable and going to be causing me constant headaches."

Philly is getting what they deserve.

So basically two spots opened up on the Eastern All Star team, including a starting spot (which I assume Harden get those votes). So maybe Trae Young and a player from Miami can get in this time.
