In his first game as a Laker, Troy Daniels just hit a running tear drop in which he got fouled. He didn’t even attempt one of those in what seems like 700 games as a Phoenix Sun. What a time to be alive.

And Jared Dudley played 13.5 minutes without fighting anybody - another thing that did not happen in Phoenix.

Hornets beat bulls tonight...Hornets went 23/44 from 3. PJ Washington went 7/11 and had 27 points...I liked him a lot in the draft and he would have made a lot of sense at 11 too...I really hope Cam is good because there are a few guys we passed on there that would have been nice!

It's actually amazing how he manages it.

Poor TJ. I actually want him to tear it up in Indy. I like the guy. Sucks to see anybody get hurt right at the start of the season. I'm similarly sad for New Orleans; they deserve to get to watch Zion go nuts on the league rather than having him already sidelined.

Trae going off in the 1st Q...16 points so far. Atlanta looks very fun offensively...though Detroit looks pretty bad defensively as well.

I've seen about 3 quarters of Pistons basketball this season and I feel like that's already 2 quarters too many.

Just checked to see who has Bagley on their roster in our fantasy league. I feel bad for you with him and Zion, but now I know why you're watching this Hawks/Pistons game. :lol:

Trae with 6 3’s and 26 points in the first half. Detroit winning though...both teams quite bad defensively. Who was asking about teams that would be worse defensively than us? I’m watching 2 right now.

I really dislike watching James Harden. I respect his skill, but the way he baits refs is so damn annoying.

I'm watching Chicago vs Memphis, and JJJ looks pretty good putting the ball on the floor and driving. Morant is FAST.

Not sure what's making me happier right now, the Suns or Trevor Ariza's last two games (45 mins, 0-6 FG, 0 points). f*** that guy.

Ok, here is a funny fact for you Ariza haters out there. In Turkish the word Ariza means malfunction. I guess basketball wise that must also be the meaning of this word..

The Kings are a dumpster fire.

Bagley's injury is bad luck, but they made their own bed with the rest of their issues.

Not sure where their fetish for changing coaches as soon as they achieve some success comes from.
