Can't believe the new NBA season is almost here already.  I'm really curious how long Lebron can keep up his elite level of play considering how old he is.  It's extremely impressive how many games James had played without any serious injuries coming straight out of high school to the NBA at 18 years old.  He is one of the most durable players the league has ever seen.

He is a freak of nature. Lets look at the 2003 NBA draft batch:

    1    LeBron James
   2    Darko Miličić    
   3    Carmelo Anthony
   4    Chris Bosh
   5    Dwyane Wade
   6    Chris Kaman
   7    Kirk Hinrich    
    8    T. J. Ford
   9    Michael Sweetney    
   10    Jarvis Hayes

We can clearly see that most of the players there are gone or never heard and didn't last that long. And those who have the same staying power as Lebron, their games have dramatically suffered. And the last time we see someone goes to NBA right out of high school is... wait for it.... Kwame Brown (2001).... Grin

The pistons really screwed that draft up.  They could of selected Bosh, Wade, or Melo and became a dynasty.  There is no reason the Pistons couldn't have won 3-4 rings with one of those players added to that legendary defensive squad.  Since those Pistons teams were heavily defense oriented Wade/Melo/Bosh would of gave them an enormous offensive boost.

Yes, but they did select Darko amongst the list, however, as far as I can remember, coach Brown that time wanted Darko to play out of his comfort zone, which eventually didn't go any good for him and there are times that he will snapped as well. Also, remember that he was very young at that time and with no guidance, away from his family that greatly contributed to his performance and eventually quitting the game for good to go back to Serbia and attend to his mother.

Overall that moving the 3 points line back further is a non sense idea to me.
I got his point but these changes would really have a very very long debate on having such decision. Changing 3 point line so that there would be no players can easily shoot 3's? It do definitely lose out the the balance on the game yet players would play mid-range which I cant deny its a good view but make it all balance would still be preferred.

Just to add, there will be no changes if 3 point line will be moved further back. They will still kill the perimeter area so still it will not solved the lack of physcial actions that everyone want to see like way back 90' etc. or where lots of big man are still present in the league. Again the current era lacks of pure big man that's why we can't compare the actions to past era.

The pistons really screwed that draft up.  They could of selected Bosh, Wade, or Melo and became a dynasty.  There is no reason the Pistons couldn't have won 3-4 rings with one of those players added to that legendary defensive squad.  Since those Pistons teams were heavily defense oriented Wade/Melo/Bosh would of gave them an enormous offensive boost.

If they picked Melo or Wade back then I don't see Pistons role players will able to show their true potential. Detroit Pistons that year doesn't have a main man but instead all of them are contributing. Their team was composed of role players. Dwade and Melo's first season in their respective team are more of isolation plays meaning most of the plays are focused on them. Wade on Pistons will shadowed Billups position, Melo's positon will shadowed Tayshaun Prince and Rip Hamilton's position.

Can't believe the new NBA season is almost here already.  I'm really curious how long Lebron can keep up his elite level of play considering how old he is.  It's extremely impressive how many games James had played without any serious injuries coming straight out of high school to the NBA at 18 years old.  He is one of the most durable players the league has ever seen.
Though he's not getting any younger, and we know that mentally, he can still manage to play the game smartly, but physically, he's aged. And this will somehow affect some of his famous monster moves that he is known for. His movement will now be limited, but we all know that his passion and dedication will always  be there, and I think that's the important attitude being a winner.

Maybe until his son playing in NBA. Anyway, I'm a fan of Lakers but  I'm pretty sure that this season LeBrown James will not make LA Lakers NBA Finals or even playoffs.
See how strong Western Conference is.

I might agree that there will be no 9th consecutive finals appearance for LeBron James now but for playoffs appearance I believed they will. I don't see how they can't able to finished even at 8th spot on the West. A young and unexperienced Los Angeles Lakers last season finished last season at 11th spot with just 12 games winning behind to the top 8th on the West.

I see Lakers will finished at 4th to 5th spot on the West.

Yes, or maybe even the 3rd spot.
Why? Strategy. The top teams may try to manipulate the match ups by losing if it needs to be so that they wont face a stronger team on the first round.
I bet they can give 1 to 2 losses just so the wont be facing Lebron James. That takes out the risk of going for the next round and also for preparation to face him in 2nd round or the semis.

Some teams gets shocked when the playoffs begin. It is a different aura there that is why they are losing. Look at Toronto, so strong in the season and yet shocked at what happened.

Yes agree it really happened.

At most of the cases, a certain team will try to avoid facing the team they didn't want especially at first round of playoffs. That's why until the last game of the season, the expectations of who will be matched at the playoffs changed.

Interesting to see how the Cleveland will react to James. The first time he transferred it was really ugly and there are reports that some fans burned James Jersey. But I think Cavs fans will be soft this time, because he was able to bring a trophy (which he promised.) Tony Parker will be embraced by San Antonio and perhaps gives him tribute when he goes back and play on Jan. 14.

Can't believe the new NBA season is almost here already.  I'm really curious how long Lebron can keep up his elite level of play considering how old he is.  It's extremely impressive how many games James had played without any serious injuries coming straight out of high school to the NBA at 18 years old.  He is one of the most durable players the league has ever seen.

Maybe until his son playing in NBA. Anyway, I'm a fan of Lakers but  I'm pretty sure that this season LeBrown James will not make LA Lakers NBA Finals or even playoffs.
See how strong Western Conference is.

I might agree that there will be no 9th consecutive finals appearance for LeBron James now but for playoffs appearance I believed they will. I don't see how they can't able to finished even at 8th spot on the West. A young and unexperienced Los Angeles Lakers last season finished last season at 11th spot with just 12 games winning behind to the top 8th on the West.

I see Lakers will finished at 4th to 5th spot on the West.
West finals really a question since Lebron is teaming up with young generations and new stars, might be having chemistry issue but meeting the playoffs I also agree with his capability to play well and to lift his team to a much better position, though we are all waiting for this new season to open we are looking for the team we supported to excel and show a good run.

After a series of back-and-forths, it looks like Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson is finally cleared to suit up for team Philipines in Asian Games in Jakarta.

Good news to all Filipino fans out there. Finally Jordan Clarkson was given a green light by the NBA and this is a opportunity that his been dreaming, to represent the country and play under Gilas Philippines. Please take note though that this grant from NBA also includes Rockets’ center Zhou Qi and Dallas forward Ding Yanyuhang to play in the Asian Games.

NBA trade news: Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler exits, Raptors confirm deal, Lakers claim

Interesting to hear that Kyrie Irving doesn't want to sign a extension with the Celtics. He even haven't had the time to show his skills in a Celtics uniform and now his thinking of leaving them? Is he thinking of joining another team that has a star and be a potential super teams? I don't know about Butler's case though, he also turns down a lucrative contract offered to him.

He knows that the Celts are going to be good even without him judging from the Eastern Conference Finals last season.

I think not considering that the Celtics will have Hayward back to it's roster and this could make them a team to beat at the East. He may have problem with the Celtic's front office  Grin.

Is it possible that Kyrie will team up with Lebron James again, I mean they work better together and they are a threat.
There are a lot of surprises actually but I hope he will be in a team that has a championship potential, and I also hope he will be fully healthy to finish a season, especially the off season.

I believe it is not possible that kyrie might not team up with LeBron, I think that Lakers have their own people to be with King James in order to win and look, their rookies might be the superstar Lakers might need right? So, they must stay on the track with the king.

According to the news, Irving and Butler might go with the Knicks or the Nets. I think they must go to Knicks so that Porzingis have some good teammates to play with. I don't think Irving will go Lakers. Magic will focus on his young players and will train them in order to win a championship.

I am still shocked that people even after so many straight finals and so many times carrying his horrible cavs teams they can still question lebron james. I understand beating warriors or rockets could be a problem but lets face it warriors are not "having fun" like they used to and rockets lost key part of their team with ariza, now I do not think lebron will have west side finals but he sure as hell is not staying out of playoffs. He will give people their moneys worth and have a shot at actually disrupting other teams.

Also, this year is not really the year lakers are looking into being great again, this year is the year lakers are getting by. Next year when there is huge names in the free agency, they will go hard after a lot of players and if they can get couple good names into this roster they will be amazing. Simple strategy, hope to get good players next year and hope warriors fall apart on contract negotiations.

Kyrie Irving has lost it when he quit Lebron and to be honest Butler and Irving is not a good pair.

Side topic:

Dates that notable players with new teams will be visiting their former teams during the 2018-19 season.

DATE

Carmelo Anthony at OKC   Nov. 8
LeBron James at CLE           Nov. 21
DeAndre Jordan at LAC   Dec. 20
Kawhi Leonard at SA           Jan. 3
Blake Griffin at LAC           Jan. 12
Tony Parker at SA           Jan. 14
DeMar DeRozan at TOR   Feb. 22


Interesting to see how the Cleveland will react to James. The first time he transferred it was really ugly and there are reports that some fans burned James Jersey. But I think Cavs fans will be soft this time, because he was able to bring a trophy (which he promised.) Tony Parker will be embraced by San Antonio and perhaps gives him tribute when he goes back and play on Jan. 14.

He tried his best. Actually I have never seen a player played that much just like Lebron James minutes. It is too exhausting just watching him almost not having a break.

He had a mindset of a champion and yet it is just short and I dont blame the other players of Cleveland too. It is just too hard to reach a certain game like Lebron. He is really on his peak of playing basketball.

I want to see DeRozan ex-team reaction though. He is one of the best in Toronto and now here is what happened.

Yes. DeRozan is also going to be something big when he goes back to Toronto again. Seems that he doesn't like to leave the Raptors but its business and as much as the fans wanted him, the management makes the final decision. He will be appreciated, because he was traded and didn't left like what Lebron in "The Decision", or Durant decisions on moving to GSW.
