With the NBA starting tonight, what are your thoughts on the season?

I am interested in seeing how OKC's trio plays together.

Outside of CP3 and the Beard, does Houston have enough to be a serious competitor in the West?

Is San Antonio still a threat?

Does the East have anything to offer outside of Boston and Cleveland?

Just some random questions...

Thoughts?

Cavs Warriors in the finals. Cavs don't look good enough to hang. Granted, as we saw tonight, crazy stuff can happen...an injury to Curry, Durant or Lebron could change things quickly.

Rox win over GSW... Green injury made it easier, but they would not have won with last year's team.

Fractured tibia and dislocated ankle. Tough turn of events for Boston and Hayward. I've followed him since he heaved a half court shot to beat Duke in the NCAA Championship game. Love the guy and hate to see him have that type of injury, especially in a new city, new team, and in the first game of the season. No one likes injuries, but especially not to a guy like Hayward.

Not good, Draymond always has issues with knees.

Hayward is still young but that could be a career threatening or career reducing injury. Once you ruin your ankle it's a troublesome spot.

Yeah probably the worst area to suffer an injury as a BBall player. I think some of the Celtic Fans I talked to were overly optimistic about this season- Could be a few seasons if it is ever 100%


I remember ex-Buckeye, Maverick, Rocket Jim Jackson derailing his career on an ankle. He was coming into his own and after his ankle injury he was essentially a role player.

What made it worse was the tibia break, which probably caused the ankle to break as well under the weight of Hayward falling.
