    That reminded me of Gordon Hayward's leg injury on opening night last season.

    So I got to see Lebron James score 51 points and take down his former team. The Miami arena was a nice place, easy to get to and move around in, plenty of good vendors and overall airy and clean.

    Drivers in Florida are another story.

    Right. Should have said the arena in Miami to be clear. The PA announcer was horrible....so overdramatic on the home team announcing and for the Lakers you couldn't even make out what names he was calling out because his voice was so soft and low.

    Things may change but at Christmas this year just 4 games separate the top 5 teams in the east and the top 8 teams in the west. Playoffs could be more wide open then they've been in years.

    The Western Conference is tight as a drum.

    However, home court still means a whole lot especially for the Golden State Warriors.

    Re: 2018-19 NBA Basketball Season Thread

    Hot take: James harden could be the most overrated player in nba history. All these articles about his greatness. People wanna hand him the mvp. My bad the refs wanna give him the mvp. He draws fouls, but their flop fouls. Sure heís a star, but thatís why he disappears in playoffs. He isnít an all time great and itís embarassing that there is a conversation that he is. He shoots 43 percent and scores a 3rd of his points from the free throw line, on fouls that werenít fouls in 90 percent of the years the nba has existed. Curry will drop 50 points on 23 shots. Harden drops 50 while attempting 20 3s. Steph revolutionized the game, and harden, Dantonís and the rockets are ruining it.
