    I’m creating this as a placeholder. I’ll do a write up on Sunday when I have time. I’ll do roster count for each team so we know who to follow and support.

    Season starts October 16th.

    I was starting to wonder if we would have one this year. Not all is lost we still have some big names this year in Jokic, Hayward, Gasol, Love, Porzingis, and all-star last season Dragic!

    Plenty of new white rookies to get excited about in Luka Doncic who is the favorite for rookie of the year. We have a big influx of white guard/swingmen this year in Allen, Divencenso, Huerter, Dzanan Musa

    One of the top rookies in Summer League was ex-Michigan swing-man Duncan Robinson. He signed a 2-way contract with the Miami Heat a couple weeks after going undrafted. Even the caste media in Miami was hyping him up in July.

    2-way contracts allow a Developmental League player to spend 45 days with an NBA team during the season....Hope is Robinson can impress so much that the Heat will tear up his 2-way deal and sign him to the 15 man roster.

    Jokic and Gallinari look great so far. Should be the leading scorers for the Nuggets and Clippers, respectively.

    Uber bust overall #1 pick Markelle Fulz named starter for the 76ers. JJ Redick will come off the bench. Obviously a ploy to boost Fulz’s fragile ego after his disastrous rookie campaign in which he developed a bizarre hitch in his shot. Look for Philly to take a major step backwards this year after last year’s breakout season. Veterans Belinelli and Ilyasova are gone. TJ McConnell will be relegated to the bench with Redick.

    “Trust the Process” is the most annoying, misunderstood slogan. “The process” consisted of the 76ers being the worst team in the league for several consecutive years and drafting several busts, but hitting on a couple of decent players. What a pathetic process. Anyway, I’ll be rooting against the 76ers until they restore McConnell and Redick in the starting lineup with Saric.

    Big fan of Redick since his Duke days. But he's an idiot if he didn't see the writing on the wall. Last season he stood up for Markelle when local reporter's were laughing at the bum air ball jumpers during 76ers open practice. Redick can be heard yelling

    "Leave him(Fultz) alone. He's just a kid!" Ya that kid has now taken your spot. Again big fan of JJ. But I like him 25% less.

    Bucks surprisingly have some White guy's to cheer for. Notably Donte DiVencenzo and Pat Connaughton. Dellavadova, Tyler Zeller and Ilyasova. Unfortunately all will be bench players.
