OT-NBA off season thread

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about the NBA, none that bothered to submit a monthly thread for nearly 4 months as to avoid detracting from what this site is really about: ... white privilege

#sixers will have 23 (!) nationally televised games this season between ESPN, TNT, & NBATV.

The day the NBA schedule is released is an amazing day.

Games I'm angling to go to:

San Antonio vs. Memphis (March 5)
Milwaukee vs. San Antonio (March 25)
Minneapolis vs. New Orleans (Jan 6) OR Minneapolis vs. Toronto (Jan 20)

I was about to say Minneapolis vs. New Orleans (Feb 3) was in the running, but as that's the day before the Super Bowl in Minneapolis, that's a no go.

Meyers Leonard could not handle New York City with my liver.

why am i posting news about an NFL team firing its doctors after they misdiagnosed an injury? hmmm? what. could. i. possibly. be. implying.
The Saints have fired team orthopedists Deryk Jones and Misty Suri, per source, after it was discovered that CB Delvin Breaux has a fractured fibula and will require surgery expected to sidelined him for 4-6 weeks. Breaux was originally diagnosed with a contusion – and the team was frustrated that he wasn't recovering more quickly until the missed diagnosis was revealed. It was accurately reported that the team has had an issue with Breaux's string of nagging injuries in the past, but this case is different. And it seems unlikely at this point that the team will be as eager to trade or release Breaux.

From Hoops Rumors:
Veteran forward Udonis Haslem is the latest Heat player to express interest in bringing back Dwyane Wade if he agrees to a buyout in Chicago, writes Ira Winderman of The Sun Sentinel. Interest in the possibility was reignited with a report Wednesday that Wade and the Bulls could part ways at some point this season.

I don't begrudge the guy his money, I'm sure he's a prince among men, but why in god's name are the Heat still paying Udonis Haslem millions of dollars per year? $4 million last year for 130 minutes! That's like three games for a Thibodeau player. If they want him around for the younger guys why don't they just make him a coach?

2 76ERS
Everybody is excited to see the culmination 76ers' Process. Joel Embiid looked like a future face of the league last season. They have the past two overall No. 1 picks (Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons), and they signed veterans (J.J. Redick, Amir Johnson) to help them win. Philly could make a playoff run in the weak East (SportsLine projects 40.2 wins, good for the No. 7 seed).
The Lakers are young, and play a fun style. Is this the season they take a step forward? Probably not, but there's enough young talent (Lonzo Ball!) on this roster to make them watchable -- and you can see them plenty; L.A. is on national TV 35 times.

The Bulls traded their most entertaining player in Butler. The main prize of that trade, Zach Lavine, may miss the beginning of the season with an injury. Dwyane Wade is seeking a buyout. Rajon Rondo is gone. Don't pay extra to watch the Bulls -- if you watch them at all.

the mavs are way too low. dennis smith jr and nerlens noel should be insanely fun to watch. the suns are also underrated, assuming bledsoe stays healthy. the raptors should be bottom 5.

there's a strong underclass of unwatchable this year. CHI/NYK/DET/IND/ORL/ATL. even some teams that could be good (UTA/TOR/NOP/WAS/MEM/MIA) are likely to be boring/uninteresting.
