That's mature. Lonzo seems like a nice guy. Do you wish injury upon all those that don't play a sport on your favorite team?

Nope, but all that talk and ego from both himself and his father without having played a single NBA game will have consequences, and not from me.

His dad is the loud mouth. Lonzo is pretty measured by NBA standards. You're making it like he's Draymond Green or something.

Cavs officially have the "easiest" schedule based on 2016-2017 Win/Loss records. I know a lot of players have switched up, but I thought that was an interesting factoid.

After reading through one of the pro basketball annual mags, I really like what the Rockets have done w/ their roster. They picked up Chris Paul to go with Harden. Last year Harden had to serve as both main scorer and main distributor, and that is too taxing for one guy. The Bulls wanted to do that with Jordan at one point, and Jordan himself put the kibosh on it.


The Rockets also have last year's 6th man of the year in the backcourt--Eric G. Arguably we have not seen a backcourt like this since Isaiah Thomas/Joe Dumars/Vinny Johnson of the bad boy Pistons.


The Rockets led the league last year in three point shots per game made, and now add Chris Paul who is a good 3 pt shooter (41 pct last year). They have defense up front with guys like Ariza and Luc Mbah Moute (sp?). They have PF Ryan Anderson who can hit 3 pt shots and draw out the defense.


This is a well designed team. The great teams always have a deliberate design, as opposed to just bringing in guys who can put up numbers (that has basically been Clevelands approach). They won't beat GSW, but if GSW happens to run into injury problems, I'd bet on the Rockets.
