1 2017-18 NBA Basketball on 9/24/2017, 9:28 pm

I am a MN fan this year. I like coach Thibs. I like the potential for the TEAM. I find the East and the Bulls to be minor league basketball, and I will watch games, but the real basketball is in the West. OK just got stronger.

For all my criticism of LeBron James the basketball player when compared to Michael Jordan, there is one area he has proven to be the goat which in my opinion is more important than being the goat in basketball. I believe few have conducted themselves with more class and determination to work to improve communities than James. Michael was into dollars. James has taken this to a whole new level of respect.

I will purchase a one team season NBA pass for the Timberwolves. There will be less blackout issues which caused me to cancel my Bulls one team pass because of the hassles I had with their blackout policies. We get ESPN and TNT so when it is a national televised game, I will be able to pick the same up on those two networks, and when not I can stream the Timberwolves for about a hundred bucks a year......I used to spend much more than that on going to live bulls games for just one game, so this may work out but the blackout policies based on ips becomes a nightmare when I travel to Florida.

I am buying the NBA one team pass for the Timberwolves tonight. I cannot wait to watch them play the lakers Saturday. I want Butler to absolutely swallow up ball and make him look like a rookie. I am so tired of the shoe hype and father's behavior. The only chance the other two kids have is for his father to learn to STFU because every defensive guard in the NBA is going to be licking their lips to make this kid look foolish.

Timberwovles are my team this year and they dispatched the Lakers easily and just as I thought, Ball did not do chit. His old man has painted a bulls eye on his kids back which you can bet every team will be looking to shut him down. The Lakers are not good enough yet for him to be isolated, so they will stack their defense and if he is so great, five points a game with lots of minutes will get him high honors as a failed draft choice. Preseason does not really mean that much, but the wolves had balanced scoring as almost seven players had double figures. The warriors lost so again....just preseason.

The Bulls beat the Pelicans tonight. I know it was preseason, but the Pelicans have serious problems with their double post offense. The Bulls suck and if they are beating you.........my guess is that they will try to trade their stars before the trade deadline and start rebuilding.

The Cavs are flooded with MVPs, all stars, and some of the best players ever assembled artificially to try to salvage King James legacy.....but the one factor which makes all this effort without meaning.....James will be on the team. If they cannot win with this collection of players, the problem will finally be accepted by all.

Monk was the most under rated draft choice this year. Micahel Jordan is finally going to have a good team. Dwight Howard haters may have a surprise. I put the Hornets as top four in the east, and they will get better.

The baby bulls are nothing more than a CF where the coach will run his running college offense, and then defenses will simply force them into a half court game.

Valentine will thrive if the bulls truly turn the offence loose to run.

I have never seen a more incompetent front office in Gar Foreman and John Paxson, which when combined with Fred Hoiberg who is better suited to coach a junior high team and these three individuals have just repeatedly failed over and over again and Reinsdorf is in his mid eighties and he will do nothing. Now they are having fist fights with serious injuries in practice.

The Cavs looked meh last night.

LeBron is going to have to charge over the top of a thousand defenders just to make the playoffs.

The Cavs are probably the sixth best team in the NBA this year. The excitement is all spurs, warriors, Houston, OK, timberwolves, and the Cavs a distant sixth.

He's the best I've seen since Earl Campbell.

Spurs vs Timberwolves has been a great game. Thibs is going to have to deal with a lot of egos. No team chemistry, but a huge upside with the talent and blend of experience. The wolves are going to be very good, but they have to work out their rotations as the Spurs were just a little bit better.

wolves beat Utah, but the talent in the Pelican/Warrior game is off the charts....Curry is just that once in a generation player.

Wolves beat OK. Butler is taking a back seat and they are winning. They actually are playing pretty good defense.

The Greek Freak has elevated his game to something we have not seen for years. I doubt he can keep this pace up, but he is something to watch.

The Chicago Bulls front office keeps proving they are the dumbest front office in a decade. They traded Bell to the Warriors for three million dollars. If you saw his dunk, or saw how tough this kid is playing, you realize he may break into the Warriors starting rotation......the Bulls simply have certified idiots running the team. Gar Foreman is mentally challenged, and John Paxson is just some more of reinsdorf's notorious loyalty to incompetent managemment where they once played for the organization....see Kenny Williams and the White Sox.....another sterling idiot who they will not let go.......I would like the rules to change on the draft. This stupidity should not be rewarded.

It is hard playing with James. It is all about him. The team has always been hurt by the nature of Jame's game. It is suffocating to good team ball.

I feel bad for the defenders. He literally sticks his forearm (elbow?) into their chest and moves them.

The timberwolves beat a very good OK team for the second time this year. Butler was sick for two games they lost, but he just plays lock down defense even though Townes and Wiggins are horrible at defense. Townes did get four blocks which is only beginning to tap his potential. If Gibson and Butler can get him to take as much pride in his defense, this will be a very good team. Wiggins is exceptional and could be a top tier defender, but these teams which get all the draft picks seem to never be able to have these young teams play defense. Thibs is sitting at the bottom of defense in the NBA, and Butler missing those two games as mediocre teams ran up the score. The Wolves could be the real deal if they simply start playing defense.

The Pelicans are looking good. The Cavs still cannot play a lick of defense, and neither rose or Thomas are going to save the day and create something other than the fifth worse defense in the NBA. They have improved this year from the worse the second half of the season. It has been comical to talk about the Cavs as even being relevant any more.
