    2016-17 NBA Season Thread

    NBA Season #71 is upon us.

    From the opening tip on October 25, 2016 to the last possible NBA Finals date on June 18, 2017, it should be another exciting NBA season.

    Fresh off bringing Cleveland their first major pro league sports title in 52 years, will the Cleveland Cavaliers repeat as NBA champions?

    Will the Golden State Warriors bounce back to win the NBA title to overcome their 2016 NBA Finals collapse?

    Stay tuned.

    Nope. Nobody will take a flyer for Dwight Howard.

    Is Howard expected to make max salary? Does any contending team have cap room to begin with?

    I'm guessing Lakers, as there is no longer the pressure to win and Kobe is gone. It would be his team. Plus, they're used to a highly paid big man that can't shoot free throws.

    The Bulls are sending Derrick Rose, Justin Holiday and a 2017 2nd-round pick for Robin Lopez, Jerian Grant and Jose Calderon, per source.

    I think the Chicago Bulls wins this deal. What is Phil Jackson and the NY Knicks brass thinking?

    Yeah, you need a point guard, but you gave up too much and D-Rose is made of glass.

    IF that's true, I would be massively pissed that they gave up Grant. But they're saying not only is Grant gone but they even gave up the much better Lopez????

    WTF!!

    That's the Isiah Thomas type of trade. I bang my head to a brick wall if I were a Knick fan right now.

    rose trade is just hilarious. dude is a 20m pg who can't shoot, can't stay healthy, can't pass, can't even play both sides of the ball for 30 minutes.

    and they gave up 2 decent assets for him.

    it's honestly hilarious

    The Ibaka trade seems dumb.

    I think it gives OKC a legitimate 3rd option while making them deeper. They can backfill the 4 with Kanter/Sabonis/Ilyasova. Not a bad return for a guy who probably would have left at the end of next season and who may be overrated at this point.

    Yep, how many times did we see it come down to Dion Waiters or Ibaka taking big shots from the perimeter? I think Oladipo will thrive there.

    Maybe Kevin Durant is thinking about staying in OKC after that trade.

    I hope Danny Ainge knows what he's doing with keeping those picks instead of trading some.

    OKC is my biggest winner on draft night tonight.
