NBA 2015-2016 Season Thread

Recommended Posts

With the monumental news that Anthony Bennett has cleared waivers and signed with Toronto, as well as me re-upping my sub to league pass and Maxx starting a fantasy league, I figure it's probably about time to kick off a new season thread.

Hawks almost had J-Rich, but alas.  Had his body held up, he could have been a damn fine depth guy.  Better he walks away with his health, though.

Mike Scott was arrested for drug possession.  Knowing how it's gone for other athletes, I doubt he will be affected terribly.  Still wish we would go get some more backcourt help.

Nothing to report for the Pistons currently. Hoping they can finally make that push into the playoffs with a team revamped in SVG's image.

Deron Williams-free in Brooklyn! Now time for us to be bottom feeders and watch whoever the hell has our first round pick reap the benefit. >_>

Tristan Thompson wants more than $17.5M a year. I understand the leverage he has over the Cavs (they're over the cap so a replacement would be an exception or minimum player, friends with and has the same agent with LeBron), but how the fuck could you consider giving him that?

He's a 10 & 9 and isn't a starter, no matter how much salaries jump there is no way an average role-player will be getting $17.5M. It isn't even like he's had some monster 30-10 game or something that you can point to as him being able to bust out and do something amazing. Shit is crazy.

Oh yeah, Tristan is just idiotic trying to force himself to such a deal. He's playing behind one of the best PF's in the game when healthy in Kevin Love, and then he demands 17.5M as a player with limited usage. He's just crazy and LeBron is also an asshole for practically telling him to do such a thing rather than talk sense into the kid.

I get why Tristan would ask for it, since it might be his only major payday of his career even if the cap goes up, and it's obvious he's a limited player who won't have all-star upside.

But still, dude needs some sense because there's no other team that will pay that much for a player like him, not even the Kings would go there...

I'm pissed off at basically everything the Hornets did. Maybe we get a 7th seed but no upside for the next few years thanks to Mr. Michael Jordan not understanding the meaning of ''long term''. At least Kaminsky looks decent.

Man, I want Matt Barnes to get punished so badly, but I know nothing will come out of it.

If he did spit on his ex-wife that's fucking disgusting and deserves punishment.

But I wouldn't date someone I knows ex without running it by them first. He overreacted but a lot of people do in that situation. Hell a lot of people overreact if they don't already know their ex-wife/husbands new partner.

And I'll qualify it by saying I think Matt Barnes is a horrible person. But the whole thing is ick and making it public is even icker.

So I've recently been really getting into basketball having only kind of paid attention before now. Which means I don't have a team.

So I'm going to have a tournament for my support! And probably a few of my pennies!

I don't want to just choose a team so I'm going to watch all 30 teams and essentially 'advance' a team to the next round based on who I end up rooting for (regardless of result). For example, I have watched the first of these games already and the 76'ers have been eliminated with the Knicks progressing to the next round! I realise Philly were missing most of their big names from this game but I want to get this going early so I'm including pre-season so I can have a team as soon as possible. So, hooray (?)! I'm pretty sure outside of @Plubby there are no Knicks fans around here though?

Anyway, I figure this is a pretty good way of finding out who I naturally root for and end up with a team I genuinely like. And knowing my history of stereotypical British love affairs with previous underdogs I suspect I won't be celebrating a championship any time soon in this sport either.

So yeah,

Round One

76'ersKnicks

Timberwolves Raptors

SpursHeat

PelicansBulls

Trailblazers Jazz

Bucks Cavs

Nuggets @ Warriors

KingsLakers

RocketsSuns

Ahhh okay.

Of all the players that made me root for them over Philly, it was Robin Lopez's barrage in the first quarter and Derrick Williams taking the game to Dunk City. That was good fun.

Plus I'm a sucker for the blue and orange combo.

You should support the Oklahoma City Thunder.

 

And in my eyes we have the best 1-2 Punch in the NBA in Durant and Westbrook! Amazing scorer and the most explosive, even after knee surgeries, triple double threat.

You should not be rooting for the Spurs, they are the opposite of an underdog, and also terrible.

T'Wolves are Quom's domain.

Oh I doubt the Spurs last but I'm just yesterday's games as my base point. So it was them or the Heat. And yeah, not a fan of the Heat.

I also doubt the T'Wolves make it all the way either.

Doing it this way gets me familiar with all the teams and it's entertaining for me. I already know of a few teams I highly doubt it will be but I'm giving them all a 'fair' shot. The match ups just depend on games that day for the first round. So occasionally a Spurs or similar might make it through.

      With free agency set to begin tomorrow, I think it's time to start a new topic.
      Kemba Walker is expected to sign with the Boston Celtics. So much for giving the Hornets a homedown discount.
      Nikola Mirotic is expected to sign with Barcelona of the Euroleague. Did not see that one coming.
      Warriors are going to give Klay Thompson a max contract, while Durant is taking meetings with the Knicks, Clippers, and Warriors.
      Kawhi Leonard is also meeting with the Clippers, along with the Lakers and the Raptors.
      Kyrie Irving is trying to get something done with the Nets.
      Derrick Favors is going to open up free agency taking calls from whoever, although the Jazz have until July 6th to guarantee his contract or make him an unrestricted free agent. The Jazz are expected to meet with Bobby Portis in LA tomorrow. I'm sure the talks there will decide what we do with Favors.
      Bunch of other rumors out there too but that covers a lot of them, I think. Should be a fun summer.

      Figured since the first big move of the off season just happened and with the draft tomorrow, it would be ok to start a new season thread. 
      The Hornets have agreed to trade Dwight Howard to the Nets for Timothy Mozgov.

      Couldn't find a thread for this coming season, so.
      I need help. It appears the League Pass option where I could pay relatively little and choose any 8 games a month is gone (boooo). And I don't want to pay £25 a month. So the £15 option is to pick a single team. Thing is I've never really settled on a team to follow/support. So I need to choose a team that's going to be an entertaining watch this year, plenty of exciting/close games. I'd also rather not watch the top few teams spend half the season dominating their opponents.
      So who would people advise I consider?
      I've thought about the Thunder but not a huge fan of Westbrook, same for the Rockets and Harden. I thought about the Bucks but Giannis doesn't reason enough on his own. Hell, I've considered LAL for the freakin' circus show of it all this year but I just can't.
      So who EWB? Who? Please help. Who's going to be a fun team to watch this year?

      Kyrie Irving is the standard edition cover star, DeMar DeRozan is the Canadian edition cover star and Shaq is on the standard and gold Legend editions.

      MyGM and MyLeague news from Senior Producer
      MyLeague is my favorite mode in the 2K games, so adding a story + G-League and new CBA stuff like supermax deals has me pretty hyped.
    • By Jasonmufc
      So this game released worldwide 2 days ago, and apparently according to the reviews it is p. gud. And most importantly, no Spike Lee in the career mode.
      Some changes & additions
      - 2016/1992 USA Mens Basketball Team
      - 2016 Australian Mens Basketball Team
      - 'Living' Arenas, unique sounds and looks of all the 30 different NBA courts.
      - 'Dynamic Commentary' with Chris Webber, Steve Smith, Brent Barry, Clark Kellogg, and Doris Burke alternating as third commentator.
      - David Aldridge new sideline reporter, replacing Doris Burke.
      - MyCareer interviews with EJ/Shaq/Kenny
      - More coaching animations and clips during timeouts
      - Face scanning now available on PC
      - Improved physics and animation, no more 'canned' animations.
      - Better ball physics.
      - No more ghost limbs, balls will react to all limbs and no longer ghost through whenever the AI pleases. (better hitboxes)

      - MyLeague/MyGM expansion teams, to a maximum of 36 teams, with Draft Lotteries and expansion drafts.
      - Start MyGM/MyLeague from the off-season.
      - Jersey retirements in MyLeague/MyGM
      - Rotation Timelines, to finetune exact rotations between all four quarters. (Keep your clutch players in late when they play less early on.)
      - MyLeague/MyGM 'Dynamic Rule Changes', to alter certain rules on a yearly basis.
      - Team Rivals in MyLeague/MyGM, to slowly build new rivalries between teams as they face each other in playoffs and clutch games.
      - New MyCareer story starring Michael B. Jordan. Allowing you once more to play in College, and also to play for Team USA.
      - Dynamic Duo, a new chemistry system where two players with great chemistry improve each other when they're on court. (e.g. Klay/Curry)
      - More 'choice' and you're not railroaded into Spike Lee's vision of a Harlem kid with a black twin sister and black parents, even though your player is whiter than a carton of milk.
      -- TL;DR, lots of shit changed.
      It's also getting great reviews on the internet, with IGN giving it a 8.9, Polygon a 8.0, and a lot of others above the 90... So apparently it's p. gud.
       
      Personally though, I'm not sure if I should get it just yet. I've already found it priced around 30 euros on keysites, but with the (pre-)season still a bit away, the chances of starting a legit MyGm/MyLeague with good rosters is a small one, since with training camps a lot of shit is going to no doubt happen.
      Anyone here getting the game, or already got it? What are your opinions on this year's title?
