    This should do

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    That is a very meta post, Kstat.

    Best Celtic performance so far belongs to Scal at the announcers' table.

    The Celtics don't seem to care that much. Well, Sullinger seems to care and I'm sure that Fab Melo would care as well but that's to be expected from rookies.

    I have to say though that is funny to see Oguz Savas outscoring Kevin Garnett

    Fab melo....wow.

    How can you be 7 feet tall and air ball a layup....

    He had some of the ugliest point blank misses you'll ever see.

    Sullinger looked good, though.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Melo already making a name for himself


    It's a shame Sullinger is so bad defensively. Offensively he is something special.

    look at that basketball IQ. McGee spent a big part of the summer training with Hakeem Olajuwon, btw.

    Yep. It's a big difference between being an athletic finisher and being a low post scorer. It'll be interesting to see if McGee learns to do that.

    McGee is too frail to dominate in the post IMO.

    his physique and overall tools are comparable to Hakeem's, but not everyone has the brains to use them in the low post. Even Hakeem didn't fully polish his post game for many years.

    Watching the Raptors right now, DeRozan's handle looks much improved.

    i didn't watch that game, but Kanter went 12-11, 2 blocks in 24 minutes vs. the Warriors. He'll be interesting to watch (he lost 50 pounds over the summer, if someone doesn't know yet).

    Cuban's genius FA plans ****d up Mavs pretty bad. No way this squal gels together. Poor Dirk

    i think they'll be ok, they have a lot of older guys, they'll need some time. The main issue right now seems energy. Especially the big guys, and that's their strength this year.

    I just wonder if it's all worth it. Who will they get this summer?

    and DC just got left alone in the low post defending their center. He was pushing poor DC any way he wanted. Clearly the Mavs aren't sharp at all at the moment, they'll get much better.

    edit: the center is 7'2 260, no wonder it looked so funny

    wow overreaction much? Camp started a week ago and the whole team is basically new they will need a few months to gel and learn each others games. Don't worry the Pacers just like every team in the NBA will play sloppy in the preseason main reason there is a preseason so teams can gel and knock the rust off. If they still look sloppy in early January maybe I would be concerned but making a statement like that a week into camp is just silly. Basketball isnt played on paper main reason the Heat didn't win a ring their first year the whole team was new and needed to learn each other. While Dallas 2 years ago was a veteran team who had been together as a core for a long time believe it or not that is pretty important in the NBA.

    keep in mind these euro teams are mid way though their seasons they should be outplaying Dallas.

    Cuban's(or Dallas's GM and basketball ops team) plan wont be able to get graded until after FA next off season.

    Firstly, they are not through midway their season, euro basketball leagues not EVEN started in most countries. In Spain it started and I watched Barca's first game they lost at home to weak oppenent, i dont remember exactly but they probably lost their second game too. Euroleague didnt started yet.

    Other than that learn how to express your feelings without saying words like silly.

    Finally about subject; What I wrote was my bold statement about Dallas, and its not because the game they played, Its because the squad they had like I said in my msg.

    Barcy has been together for over 2months and has a similar team 2 last year. While Dallas has a brand new team. Cuban is trying to semi compete after missing out on Dwill I think his goal is 2 lure a top notch FA this summer IMO u can't grade them until then. I like what they did have guys who expire next year and it came from no where. I figured after they missed on Dwill they wouldn't even field a team who could win 30gms and still be players 4 cp3 and D12 next summer was remarkable IMO.

    I recall Phil Jackson's first Laker team looking like garbage over 8 preseason games, and subsequently winning 67 games and the championship.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    If we judge and make assumptions for one team only from the preseason let alone their first game, then we have rather lost the plot i think.

    .....eight nba teams felt this kid wasn't worth drafting? Seriously?

    Hey, I know it's only preseason, but....wow. You can't tell me there are that many NBA teams not in need of a center that massive and athletic.
