Re: NBA Discussion Thread

1. What happened to Gordon Hayward was disturbing, granted that is part and parcel of playing basketball but noone wants that to happen and it's sad that for the first game of the season in a new team he gets carted out. I pray and wish him well that he comes back stronger.

2. Swaggy P looking good in his first regular season game, they lost by one though since KD's release was way too late. What most people I was watching with was talking about though was this one
:lol

Re: NBA - Regular Season Discussion

nah, i think the c's are really longshots now. even if hayward manages to get back this year, he won't be right. it would have to be like +600 on a $50 bet. so if you won, i give u $50, if i win, u give me $300. that's still probably being generous.
I'm not going to take money from you over this. It wouldn't be fair. I'll give you your $300 IF the Celtics can manage to knock off Cleveland. But if Cleveland wins, I don't want your money.

Re: NBA Discussion Thread

I think Hayward was going to have a big year for the Celtics. Gutted to see what happened there. But I think Brown will have a breakout season, I think that kid can be a star.

Re: NBA - Regular Season Discussion

You talkin about Bogut?
YES!! That is it. Thank you. Pretty much same situation. First game with new team and real horrible injury early in the game that is probably season ending. It was last year, have to wait and see about this one.

To be fair, Bogut was a mid season acquisition and a sudden one at that. And at best, he was going to be a role player on 20 minutes a night.

Hayward was signed in the offseason, giving plenty of time of anticipation and build up to the moment he steps out on the floor with Boston. He was expected to be Boston's second best player. And he was coming off of arguably his best season.

This is simply heartbreaking stuff. I don't think Boston had any legitimate chance of beating Cleveland, but in the end that isn't what's important. This is a injury that could potentially impact Hayward as a player going forward. Hopefully that won't be the case and he can come back strong from this. Bogut is already well past his all-NBA third team days. Gordon's still in his prime.

Re: NBA Discussion Thread

Pretty optimistic with the Sixers this year, we looked pretty damn good against the Wizards, competitive all the way to the end. Simmons looks damn good, Fultz needs some work but has potential, hopefully Embiid can stay healthy this time around......we need to get better at closing out games but that will come with experience. Covington had a great shooting game yesterday.

Don't think we'll reach the playoffs this year but it will be close if everyone can stay healthy. It will at least be fun to watch (Y).
