Up by 26 points and the Lakers still lose that game. Too many turnovers by Russ. I know it's early, but I never felt he's the proper fit for this team.

Miami looked damn good last night against Brooklyn. Bam had a field day inside.

Much as hate the way Pat Riley left NY, I have to respect the culture he's established in Miami. They're playing excellent basketball. Lowry is just what the doctor ordered.

Good discussion on Westbrook's struggles with the Lakers....who didn't see this coming?

Some unexpecged results for sure. That's what I love about the regular season, honestly. It's a rollercoaster.

Warriors outclassed the Bulls yesterday with some great defense. Not the result I was hoping for in one of the few Bulls games to get televised here, but the Warriors are off to a blistering start.

A possible finals preview on Tuesday, Nov. 16th, when Brooklyn takes on Golden State....must-see TV!

The warriors to be far are off to a flying start and without Wiseman too plus Klay I think Curry if he continues is definitely set for an mvp season

Going to have to catch that Muggsy documentary, I saw him mention it on his social media. Crazy stuff in the Pistons/Lakers game indeed. I'd say there'll be a couple of suspension there, with Stewart getting the longer penalty for continuing to go after LeBron.

A Suns/Warriors WCF would be nasty! That's definitely a seven game series.

I expected GS to rebound, but I thought Phoenix would take a step back after the Finals loss. They haven't missed a beat. Impressive what they're doing.

It would suck if both met in the playoffs before the WCF.

Agreed. That'd be a great WCF, and if they both continue this form, it could very well be the series we get.

A nice double-header tomorrow night on TNT, Knicks/Nets, then Warriors/Suns. Get the popcorn ready!

It's a complete mess. I think Rich Paul expected to Daryl Morey to blink, and he hasn't. Not that that strategy doesn't have a ton of risks of its own, mind you, but I think Ben Simmons and Paul expected to look like the good guys in the situation.

Only, Simmons hasn't banked that kind of goodwill. He's got a point that the 76ers kind of threw him under the bus after the Playoff exit last season, but by the same token, he hasn't improved his game. He seems disinterested in doing so, compared to his interest in being a socialite. He's repeatedly dipped out on the Australian national team, though to that end, I'm not unhappy that he missed out on being part of the first squad to win a medal. It's seemingly confirming those pre-Draft scouting reports back in 2016 that openly wondered if he was truly interested in and committed to professional basketball.

It's also why a lot of people doubt his claims about mental health. That's extremely unfortunate, because mental health is something to take seriously, and there's still a stigma against athletes and celebrities speaking out on something that can affect us all; the whole "you're getting paid millions, just shut up and go to work" mentality that I absolutely disagree with, because that doesn't make you immune to those problems, and also carries its own challenges. I don't like to be sceptical about someone else's mental health. When you've squandered that goodwill though, and you refuse to see a neutral medical professional about it so that you and the team can best work out how to proceed, it invites scepticism. If he's being genuine, I think he needs better help. If he's using it as an excuse, that's really low of him and his management to do, especially when players like Kevin Love have been trying to bring more awareness to such issues.

If I'm another GM, I don't want any part of that. Even if it's just because he's unhappy with the 76ers and not entirely wrongfully so, it's a huge risk to give up picks and quality players for him. Who's to say he won't do the same thing if he's unhappy in the future? Who's to say he'll actually work on his game and play to his full potential? I've defended Simmons before and I've wanted to see him succeed. He is an Aussie - when it suits him - and he spent part of his early life in my hometown, as his father played for the local team (when we had one). Someone I went to school with even coached him when he played at the rep level here. But it feels like he's squandering his talent, certainly squandering his goodwill, and not being a professional. He's tried a power play and maybe it'll get him out of Philadelphia, but I think it'll hurt him more in the long run.

Also, the Memphis Grizzlies just defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 152-79. That's the largest margin in NBA history. Not the kind of 75th Anniversary Season milestone you want to be a part of.

It was always going to be a tough game when they were missing SGA, Giddey and a couple others, but that really is just an embarrassing effort.

There was some good news today at least..

Agghhh...tough loss at MSG last night vs the Chicago. That turnaround by Derozan was sick.....and Caruso's all over the friggin' court. Well, it's good to see the Bulls are back.

Knicks drop to .500

For a duo that wasn't supposed to work very well together, DeRozan and LaVine are working pretty well together.

Suns/Warriors, Pt. 2....fun game is far. Even without Booker, Phoenix is only down 3 at the half.

Bulls take on another NY team when they visit Brooklyn tomorrow night.

And I owe Bulls fans an apology I really didn't think the defense would be that good but a whole team collective effort really has putting pressure on the ball, AC and Zo have been great together hustling and getting turnovers
