Season Preview and Power Rankings here. 

The Raptors beat the Zion-less Pelicans in overtime and the Clippers won the battle of LA against Lebron and AD.

The games were fine. This kid was awesome. I love how he pumpfaked the camera-man by showing a Clippers shirt.. then took it down and put up a “Fight with Freedom, Stand with Hong Kong” shirt. The camera-man did the awkward look away that happens when you’re staring at a cute girl for too long and she catches you. The NBA (or Lakers affiliate) definitely told the camera people to not show these shirts. The first kid dabs. The second kid stands up for Human Rights. What a World. I am watching all NBA games illegally until they stand with freedom and not with China. It is the least I can do. As a Hornets fan.. it shouldn’t be that hard for me to avoid watching Primetime NBA games. But I am still gonna gamble on the games because a degenerate gotta degenerate.

Here is a video of the Hong Kong flag that wasn’t taken down on the TNT broadcast. I have a lot of respect for Daryl Morey, Adam Silver, and Shaq for their views. It seems the NBA is standing with freedom, but they are not all the way there yet. Keep going!

Kings at -120 for 4 units. I had the Kings at 14 in my power rankings and the Suns at 27. That alone is good enough for me to take them at -120. De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, and Marvin Bagley all improved last year. I expect them to continue their upward trajectory. Suns had a lot of preseason injuries.. Cam Johnson, Ty Jerome, Mikal Bridges, Tyler Johnson, Oubre Jr, Aron Baynes, and Saric have all missed time over the past 10 days. Kings have more talent, more depth, and more cohesion than the Suns. Call me crazy, but I think the Kings are gonna make the playoffs in the West. The Suns are not, even if they were healthy.
