    Well, if that isn't a well reasoned argument, nothing is...

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

    Okay league pass users, two questions.

    If purchased
    1) Will I be able to watch tonights preseason game?
    2) It says there's an XBox app, does it work like ESPN by storing already aired games allowing me to re-watch them at my convience?

    I love the app it blacks out local games just like normal Lp. But it has all the features. For me personally it made ripping games super easy so I love the app saved me a ton of time . I am still waiting for condescend games, but that app last year was amazing. I hope with the new rules the local games will be on the app now.

    If Tony Mitchell plays with this type of energy every night dude is a game changer. He is playing tonight exactly how I envisioned him when I first watched him 2 years ago at NT, dude is every where tonight.

    I haven't watched the Pistons outside of tonight. I hope this is the norm for Tony. He doesn't even have to play that well. He just needs to play hard dude is so good on defense if he plays hard.

    I know he had some family issues last year that affected his play, maybe that was what caused him to quit playing hard. Even if that is true it is concerning.

    Tony Mitchell plays a lot like a young dennis Rodman.

    No, I'm not saying he's the next dennis Rodman. But he does have the same style. Hustle mixed with incredible athleticism.

    He hasn't played much before tonight. Both Villanueva and jerebko have failed as the 3rd big so far, so Mo decided to give the rookie a shot.

    I called him the next Rodman with offense his whole freshmen year. No joke if I would of been drafting after his freshmen year I would of took him top 5. I feel in love with what could be. Last year he looked like a different player. He was so lazy and just seemed like he didn't care for the game. I still had him mid 1st rd , but only because of talent he displayed his freshmen year. He truly is a special talent basketball wise. I just don't know if mentally he will keep it up. But no doubt he is special. He is going to be a great player if he stays the course.


    I want to see a Drummond, Mitchell, Smith, Pope, X lineup out there at some point this year. That is a scary defensive group.

    1. No, I think only international LP users can watch preseason
    2. YES, and this is an awesome feature

    Did Cleveland botch the draft by picking Bennett? Oladipo is having a strong pre-season

    What signs? He hasn't played a real game yet. Even the fake games he's played in have been fulll of mistakes as well as quality plays.

    Bennett has looked alright too, at least from what I've heard around here. I think they needed a forward more than a guard too.

    Either way, way too soon as you said.

    Really? He's making a name for himself with his career 0.0ppg, 0.0 assist career average? Who of note is impressed by that?
