Parsons’s teammates stuck up for him and even encouraged the crowd to cheer after he hit a free throw later in the quarter.

Gotta give it to Lavar-- he doesn't just talk trash when Lonzo has a good game. He also talks trash when Lonzo is 1-6 shooting, 4 ast to 2 TO, and -14

Feeling pretty happy to have Smith

Feeling a little bad that Cuban played them so hard.

How awful it must be to be a Knicks fan. Their forum topics are... Frank turns ankle, Joachim Noah mentoring Kanter(lol), Hornaceck starring as IT the clown, and Phil jackson will trade Melo for a bag of chips. I'd feel sorry for them but I rather enjoy taking a giant dump all over New York.

Some of their posters still call DSJ trash. It's sad, really. I think Frank will be ok in the long run, but it doesn't make things any better today.

Ben Simmons is nearly a year and half older than DSJ and honestly looks like it with his muscle mass. He also has a years worth of NBA coaching to some degree over all of the others.

Fultz definitely looks good and like a #1 pick even though the numbers aren't there. The Sixers with Simmons, Fultz, and Embiid have zero reason not to be vastly improved this year and ECF contenders in 2 or 3 years. It's all up to their coaching now.

Some brief thoughts after less than a week of ball:

1) OKC is for real. If they can find a consistent rotation and some scoring off the bench they will be a force.

2) I will be shocked if the WCF isn't OKC/GS... the league will blatantly throw games to make this happen.

3) New Orleans is quite possibly the most awkwardly built team of the three-ball era. Davis should be playing the 5. They've dedicated themselves to playing big and will be mediocre for it. Their only hope is finding three 3-and-D guys to put around the big 2. (But they threw money at Jrue and signed Rajon instead... LOL).

4) Memphis got a steal with Dillon Brooks. GS a steal in Bell. ATL a steal in Collins. Us, the biggest steal of all.

5) Someone please get Lavar Ball a medical marijuana card.

6) Spurs truly are the Patriots of the NBA. Doesn't matter who they put out there. The system works.

7) I will be shocked if MVP doesn't go to Giannis or Lebron.

8) I will be shocked if ROTY doesn't go to Simmons.

Justin Anderson only got 3 min of play in 76'ers loss to Celtics. I always thought high side would be J. Crowder type but solid role player - doing the dirty work kind of guy.

@wojespn: Phoenix coach Earl Watson has been fired, league sources tell ESPN.

@wojespn: Suns owner Robert Sarver and GM Ryan McDonough meeting with assistant coaches now, sources tell ESPN. Jay Triano likely interim coach.

Bledsoes agent is Rich Paul....Noel re-signing, Bledsoe trade and Lebron signing next summer confirmed.

I do Powell and Seth for Bledsoe in a heartbeat but the Suns saying of course no.

Probably the Suns are going to ask any team interested in Bledsoe do swallow Knights awful contract too..

I dunno about that... the Suns are below the salary floor right now and they're at least a couple of years/big moves away from making a serious playoff push. I could see them holding firm on wanting a lottery pick for Bledsoe but I doubt they'll insist on attaching any sort of salary dump to the deal.

And FWIW, as much as I love Bledsoe's potential, I don't think he's a fit here.

TLR version

Detroit cons the citizens into paying $863 million for a privately-owned stadium
20,500 seats available.
Pistons tried to give away 20,000 tickets to fill the stadium.
Looks like under 3,000 people actually showed.
Ice for hockey is terrible.

Detroit citizens are paying about $1,300 each for a stadium that fans don't visit and players don't like.

@wojespn: As Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry told reporters, Anthony Davis MRI was negative. Another source tells ESPN that Davis will be day-to-day.

Markkanen would have never fit here. He's over 6' tall and would cause us to have matchup problems.

Sorry, I haven't had my morning caffeine yet.

I think what is most surprising is Markannen's rebounding. If he can knock down his shots like most thought he would, the rebounding is what will propel him along. The biggest question is how is his defense? I don't watch Bulls games, as I'd imagine most of us here don't.

Don't apologize. Great and very true joke.

Wouldn't have been fair to walk in the foot steps of Dirk, but boy he is better than expected so far.

@NBA_Math: After their victory over the Chicago Bulls, the Cleveland Cavaliers are now 3-1. Here's how all their players stack up in TPA:

One fewer guy to watch for in the draft in the coming month. Joel Berry II loses at FIFA to his teammate. Throws fit and punches door. Breaks hand. Out 4 weeks.

MP went all-in, didn't win a championship, got bored, and is already selling the team. I know money talks, but the NBA should really be more selective as to who owns a team. A guy like MP made his money off the backs of the Russian people during the collapse of the USSR. He has incredibly corrupt blood in his veins, and I'm glad he'll be gone.
