Smart looks great. You hear so much about the guys who get in great shape over the offseason. It's legit with Smart. He also just destroyed Richaun Holmes. I don't know how that dudes hands are so strong.


Kyrie is going to be so ridiculous with an actual coach and system. Looked nervous Tuesday, but on fire today.

That was the most absurd thing I've seen in the NBA in a long time.

Edit: Video of the steal. One handed, he just destroys the guy holding the ball with two hands.

Well that hurts the Hornets. A ton.

In terms of east tiers post-Batum's season ending injury I think it is safe to say:

Tier 1:
Cleveland
Boston

Tier 2:
Washington
Toronto
Milwaukee

Tier 3:
Miami
Detroit


That still leaves an 8th spot in the playoffs for the likes of the now reduced Charlotte, Philly, etc.

How long does it take for a team to blowup and rebuild? Because I feel like ATL faced a slow 5 year death once Joe left and that’s CLIPPERS inevitable future.

As long as Balmer is around and Blake can play the Clippers aren’t rebuilding.

They made all the right moves this summer to make up for CP3 leaving and they can fill any potential gaps on the roster in free agency,

Depends on the team.

Seattle/OKC is probably the quickest i can think of at 3/4 years depending on how you feel about the 05/06 season where they finished with the 11 seed after being the 3 seed the year before.

It was 4 years between playoff apperances

In general i would say 3 years is the fastest you can expect to rebuild without significant Free Agent signings. The longest it can take is an indefinite time period since GMs can be incredibly incompetent at times.

I'd like for them to keep him on the team, but it's not looking good. I get the feeling they'd rather give his bench seat up for Jeff Green.
