    I'm curious to see how those 3 are going to work. Also, the Nets bench is just crushed now. Durant should still be the #1 guy. No idea how KI is going to play with 2 other ball dominate players, he couldn't wait to leave LeBron after they won the championship.

    So many blowouts so far this year, many teams playing better than projected, lots of story lines so far.

    Raptors are playing like trash so far. Chris Boucher, FVV are playing well and PS is finally starting to come around, they should be a .500 team so far but some tough losses so far.

    I think another thing that's getting lost is the weirdness with what's going on with Irving's situation right now. He's missed 4 games now to "personal reasons" and there's unverified video of him at an indoor family gathering without a mask.

    That Nets locker room is probably going to be really fucked up. 3 of the most prolific scorers who also happen to be 3 of the moodiest personalities in the league.

    Does that Russian oligarch still own the Nets? Because under his management they made one of the worst trades in NBA history bringing in KG & Pierce well past their primes that mortgaged away the team's future for the next 5 years. Even though their core stars are younger this time around it could still potentially end just as badly. This team is full of toxic personalities and ball hogs with no consideration for how the pieces fit together. Most importantly there's no leader amongst them - KD is a ring chasing snake, Harden is a strip club loving whiner that threw his whole team under the bus in the middle of a season, and Kyrie is living on his own (flat) planet.

    I'd be happy to eat my words if they win a ring together or even reach the finals but this is one of those teams you love to hate.

    Their offense, even if it is a "my turn, your turn" type offense, will be hard to guard as all 3 guys are able to score from anywhere on the floor.

    Defense will be a problem, they're going to miss Allen. Durant is the only good defender of the starting 5. Jordan isn't anything like he used to be, Harris plays hard but not a stout defender, Harden hasn't been interested on defense in years, although he can be okay.

    Needless to say, going to fun to watch and see what happens.

    The hope and the prayer is that Harden took defensive possessions off because he had to carry the weight of the entire offense. With 2 other major contributors on that end, maybe (MAYBE) he re-engages on the defensive end.

    I'll be curious to see how he'll react in plays where he's not involved since that was the major criticism when he played with Paul.

    I'm thinking the same, since he was the offense he took defense off most of the time. He's never been a great defender though, so it'll be interesting to see. For the nets to be successful, he has to put effort into both sides of the ball. Standing off ball while CP3 was running the offense was shitty of him too, if he had of done more than basically walk up passed half court, it would of added another difficult layer to that offense to deal with.

    Durant and Irving are elite 1 on 1 scorers, so that won't matter as much but even a pick and roll with any 2 of them would be a nightmare to defend with the 3rd guy and Harris tucked in the corners.

    Only saw highlights but Harden and Durant looked good last night.

    Boucher is out playing the contract he signed in the offseason, exceeding my expectations for sure.
