Paul George and the Pacers have agreed to a 5-year, $90 million contract extension.

 

And it's getting to be about that time again. The season starts a month from this Sunday.

That's too much money for him. At least not yet. But I can't blame the pacers that much as if they don't overpay him, somebody else will. It's going to be really interesting what they would do to Granger. Granger might ask for same or more money if he comes back and plays like he never got injured at all.

In regards to the Paul George max contract... a little voice in my head keeps screaming "RASHARD LEWIS!!" who the Orlando Magic gave the max contract as well. I hope I'm wrong though.

I didn't see this coming, but it looks like the Kings have given DeMarcus Cousins a 4-year, $62 million contract extension.

Kinda expected. Pretty much any young RFA with all-star potential is going to get near max. Cousins has the potential to be the best big in the league, but his attitude will never get him there.

I just thought they might have waited to let the season play out. But I guess he's unarguably their franchise player now. And now that Shaq owns a part of the team, I'm sure they're hoping he can impart some wisdom.

 

The Clippers have also picked up Lou Amundson.

The guy has so much skill I am not sure about the money given to him. His attitude and immaturity has lacked so far and would hate to see money wasted in a once competitive franchise.

Getting rid of 2-3-2 in the Finals is one of the smartest things the NBA can do.

Well the Thunder may be out to a slow start this season. The team announced that Russell Westbrook had arthroscopic knee surgery today and will be out the first 4-6 weeks of the season.

The new alternate jerseys for the Lakers are terrible. Black jerseys, sleeved jersey. That's the shit that shitty, irrelevant franchises do.

I think the lakers black alternate jerseys is the best jersey in the nba. Especially the ones made by nike that nba is not using anymore.

 

Good thing 2-3-2 format is gone.. The 3 straight home games is just awful.

Paul George is one of the 3 best wing defenders since prime Pippen. Even if he never improves at all offensively, the contract will be worth it.

Preseason starts this weekend.

 

It kicks off on Saturday with OKC vs. FBU (a basketball team from Istanbul, Turkey), Bulls/Pacers, Pelicans/Rockets, and Warriors/Lakers.

 

And if you'd prefer to watch basketball over football on Sunday, there's the 76ers vs. UBB (a team from Bilbao, Spain) and then a night game of the Nuggets/Lakers.

The Predator was on Parks and Rec tonight. That show has more random NBA player cameo's than anything else on TV.

Aaaannnddd Dwight Howard got ejected from the Pelicans/Rockets game for technicals. But it's preseason so it's not like it matters. At least he almost had a double-double and his FT shooting looked good.

 

EDIT: Looks like there was some confusion and Dwight wasn't actually ejected. He really only had one technical.

 

And with that I can't really find anything to complain about with the game he had tonight. He looked good.

Dwight is saving his ejections for when his team needs him.

Yeah cause the Lakers sure did need him when he got ejected and they were already down 0-3 to the Spurs in the first round last year :roll:

Great point! because you should totally not give a shit about your team and the way you go out just because your down 0-3. Bynum and odom went out like punks against the mavs couple of years ago and dwight should be no exception.

Hey at least I can stick to a point. Now we're talking about Dwight not giving a shit about his team or the way they went out? You said "Dwight is saving his ejections for when his team needs him." The Lakers didn't need Dwight at that point, so you're little quip made no sense.
