Yea that will be a big issue with a ton of focus on the West. Cleveland probably won't even make the playoffs now, Raptors, Sixers and Celtics will be the top 3 in the East. I think the Eastern conference needs more star power because its almost going to be an afterthought without LeBron which is unbelievable really considering he's just one player. But who knows may Embeid, Kyrie etc will step up to the plate and light up the east.

This is make or break for the Sixers. They can either view last season like the 1989 Bulls who got close enough to figure out their next step, or 2013 Knicks who never did anything ever again.

That's sad, 45 is no age, RIP.

Another former NBA & NCAA player Tyler Honeycutt has passed too, he was shot by police

RIP

Can't get this to work (getting IP denied message?) but it's about the Cavs & what really went down in the locker room etc, from the notes I've read seems real interesting, maybe someone's upped it elsewhere as I'd like to give the show a listen

Also Dwight Howard now going to the Wizards, Tony Parker to the Charlotte Hornets.

Thanks will check those out.

Rumour going around about a potential trade between the Spurs and Raptors
A swap featuring churlish Spurs star Kawhi Leonard and some financial filler for DeMar DeRozan and some selection of young Raptors (OG Anunoby, Delon Wright, Pascal Siakam, Jakob Poeltl) and future picks would be a nuclear trade. Such a deal featuring Kyle Lowry instead of DeRozan has much the same feel.

Kawhi is a really good player but he was out majority of last season through injury and there's no guarantee he's going to be the same player before he got injured. So if Toronto does this trade it would be a huge mistake.

Um, so he's been traded to a team he doesn't want to play for, in the Eastern conference & to top it off in another country...

Popovich gets the last laugh. Leonard embarrassed him by saying he couldn't even stand one more season on his team, so Greg sends him to Canada instead of California.

And Kawhi wants to be on the American national basketball team. But guess who coaches them?

Free-agent guard Dwyane Wade has been offered a three-year, $25 million contract by the Zhejiang Golden Bulls, according to Chinese media reports.

The deal, which is before taxes, would make Wade the highest-paid player in China, slightly ahead of Andray Blatche, who plays for Xinjiang in the Chinese Basketball Association.

BTSports which airs the NBA has lost the TV rights. Eleven Sports outbid them but at present they have no TV platform so it will be streaming only. BT will show the NBA only til the end of October so only some games at the start of the season.
