    What a gruesome ankle injury to the Celtic's Jason Hayward on opening night.

    Sadly, it ratchets back the Celtics expectations.

    ___________

    I still believe (like most NBA observers) that Golden State is the team to beat.

    That was horrible to watch. Celts still played a game against the cavs though. Wish Kyrie hit that 3 though....

    I'm really interested to see how OKC and Houston do in the west this year. Curious how that idiot Lonzo Ball does as a rookie for LA

    Yup.

    And the Warriors actually lost their opener.

    Isn't Anthony Davis' contract up next year or am I going crazy?

    Hm. Wonder why I thought that. Maybe it's someone else I'm thinking at that's going to be traded next year to play with Davis.

    Yeah.

    That site that I linked has all of the current present (and future) contract info (for all sports) including opt-outs and UFA eligibility.

    Pistons gave up a King's Ransom to acquire Blake Griffin.

    Probably a bad move for Detroit.

    But, time will tell.

    Celts are not looking great right now. Toronto and Cleveland are driving hard. Celtics just look tired.

    Yeah.

    The East is wide open.

    The Cavs could be faves again because of their deadline moves.

    Do you think the lakers will buy out Thomas? I have a strange feeling they will instead of keeping him. I also have a feeling his career is close to over if they do

    Not sure.

    He seems to be doing OK, since the trade.

    Celtics have a nice Big 3 in Irving, Horford and Tatum to go against the Cavs in the East.

    I am starting to think the Lakers might just hang on to Thomas.
