    Well, he will be allowed 42 travels and 29 fouls per game, so that gives him a small chance.

    Wonder how the layoff will effect his free-throw shooting. I'm more worried about Alvin Gentry's good coaching and the NBA's desire to get their annointed one into the playoffs than any quality NBA play Zion will bring to the tournament (it's essentially the NBA's version of the NCAA tournament).

    The way they set up the hotels, by seeding, I wonder if they will keep the eight games among the teams in the hotels in order to limit contact. It also makes sense to set the seeded teams against each other for the jockeying of spots. They are limiting three preseason games to teams in the hotels.

    I think Lakers win it all. Lebron’s last title.

    Cindyrella: Mavericks

    yes the 8 games as far as I know are the next 8 games on your schedule and if you had a team on your schedule that did not make it then it would skip on to the next game. So there may be some small adjustments but it is pretty much going to be who was on your upcoming schedule.

    Yes, he will.

    I think the Pelicans going 23-14 since Dec. 23 gives them more than a small chance.. Portland is 15-21 over that same period of time.

    The NBA has never made any statement regarding the schedule. What you are reporting has been false assumptions from a reporter after Day 1 that continues to recirculate.

    Those records mean absolutely nothing. Absolutely nothing. Then let's crown the Kings Champions. They were 10-5 over their last 15.

    23-14 means nothing in the NBA? That’s like more than 1/3 of the season.

    Why do you hate Zion so much?

    If that shoe was on the Blazers' foot, you be insisting they were maybe the most important numbers in the history of mankind. And, yeah, you should be concerned about the Kings too.

    I assume that the results of these 8 games are going to be added to the games played already. How is that equitable, since the teams will not have played the same number of games? I think it is likely that one or more teams might be getting messed over because of this. The league should schedule the needed amount of additional games for each team, so that they all end up with the same number of games played in the end. If that issue has already been addressed, just ignore my sometimes-incoherent ramblings.

    It means nothing because how New Orleans played and how Portland played then, especially Portland because of their roster differences (Dame/Nurk/Ariza/Zach/Trent), is no indicator of how they will play during this. While I think MEM is POR's biggest challenge because of POR having to go 2-0 in a playoff format, NOP is their second biggest challenge because of Silver's annointment of Zion Gentry's excellent coaching.

    I have stated this a zillion times: My complaint is with the NBA giving blatant preferential treatment to certain players. Giannis literally can take six steps with the ball whenever he feels like it making it physically impossible to defend. The difficulty in defending Giannis and Harden and Zion isn't because of their physical skill, but because it's impossible to defend someone who is allowed six steps in the case of Zion and Giannis and Offensive fouling in the case of all three. Anyone who denies this to be true is living in la-la-land.

    You know I wouldn't. I've never favored anything in my life that wasn't fair to all, except in cases of abuse of power by a majority, or infringing on the rights of a minority.
