I've been watching and enjoying the Grantland previews. They just now made it to the playoff teams. I don't agree with today's video though. I personally don't see the Blazers making the playoffs. But other than that, I've agreed with a lot of what Jalen and Bill have said. A new episode is added every morning.

 

And in other NBA news, Allen Iverson is apparently going to announce his retirement. Little does AI know, everyone tthought he retired years ago lol.

 

Oh and Melo recently stirred shit up when he said he wants to know what it's like to be a free agent.

They release the image but keep the rankings hidden??? I don't see the point in it. If the image is accurate, I like seeing the Mavs at 14.

They have Portland just missing the playoffs according to their power rankings no? I'm seeing my Mavs as the number 8 seed on the image. Haven't seen the video yet...

Bill Simmons was saying throughout the video that he thinks Portland is making the playoffs in the 8th seed.

Why are all the analysts hating on the knicks this year?  Some have even said they won't get 40 wins this year.  That makes no sense to me considering they improved the team over last year.

This pre-season has been a nice showcase of the Cavs' depth on the roster, which is something they've lacked for the past few years since The Decision that handicapped their transition early on.

 

Jarrett Jack and Sergey Karasev should be nice guards to bring in when Kyrie or Dion need a break or to change up the pace of the game, which is nice now that Daniel Gibson is no longer strangling their depth at the guard position. SF is the biggest question mark since the two main guys at that spot (Earl Clark and Alonzo Gee) haven't been that impressive to be the obvious starter and that spot seems to be waiting for Anthony Bennett to be ready to take it over. I wouldn't be surprised to see Gee get cut at some point so they can move on from him. If the frontcourt duo of Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao can stay healthy, they could be one of the best in the business since both are near the top at offensive rebounding and are fairly good on offense. Then there is still CJ Miles, Carrick Felix, Herny Sims, Jermaine Taylor, and the eventual returns of Andrew Bynum and Tyler Zeller from injuries. It'll be interesting to see how things shake out when they have to make cuts for the regular season roster.

Derrick Favors and the Utah Jazz have agreed to a 4-year, $49 million contract extension.

 

I think Utah is way overpaying him, but this is a rebuilding team with no real star player. I guess they're hoping either Favors or Hayward can become one.

Kobe's 35 and coming off a severe injury, one that ends most careers, Nash is 39 and hurt, and the Lakers have no depth. I've been as big a Gasol booster as there is, but he's 33 himself, and has dealt with injuries the last couple years.

The showdown last night was great! Idk if you've been watching preseason games but it felt like a reg season game. It was the first time our starting 5 for the year was starting together. That game could've gone anybody's way. Y'all made the plays at the end though. Can't wait til Nov 1st...

I did actually, and I agree. It looked a lot like a competitive regular season game through the first 3 quarters. As always, I expect the Southwest Division to be the most stacked in the NBA and there should be some good battles. Seeing as how the Rockets open the season against the Bobcats, I'm looking forward to Nov. 1st too lol.

The Suns are going to be loaded in next year's deep draft (while also in talks with Bledsoe to lock him up long term) and Washington gets a center who actually has an offensive game. I like this deal for both teams. Wouldn't surprise me to see Washington in the postseason as hard as it is to say that and not chuckle.

Washington was the best defensive team in the NBA in the second half of last season. Any improvement at all offensively and they'll definitely make the playoffs.

The last 3 spots in the East are all up for grabs IMO. You can already tell that teams like the Celtics and Hawks, who made the playoffs in the East last year, aren't going to be returning.
