This was bound to happen sooner or later. The US and China are so intertwined economically, yet near polar opposites in terms of values, these sorts of clashes are inevitable. Like many conflicts we've had with China over human rights and individual freedom, the furor from this will pass, and China will simply have more outside voices they will censor from their people while the NBA continues to make its money over there.

 

While I definitely don't think the NBA or the Rockets should cave and punish Morey, and I support his HK stance in general, I do have to wonder what he was thinking. He's no dummy, so he had to have some idea what sort of shitstorm he'd ignite, especially given the timing of his tweet.

The season's just 5 days away. Anyone want to go on record with predictions?

Unless Toronto decides to bail and trade guys like Lowry and Gasol (which I think is very unlikely), I am all over the over at 46.5. Their two most likely challengers for third best in the East (Boston and Indiana) both have big question marks.

It’s nice not going into the season assuming GS is just going to win it all. Should be a very fun season.

Woj
A severe injury has been ruled out for Zion Williamson’s right knee, but he is expected to miss period of weeks to start regular season, league sources tell ESPN. Pels are clearly treating injury with an abundance of caution but there’s no shortage of confidence on full recovery.

That blows.  

 

People do worry about his size and the wear and tear he puts on his body, so this isn't exactly good news.

Well, at least the Pelicans losses early in the season won't count now!!!

 

Seriously though, that sucks. Hope the kid bounces back quickly. He's a pleasure to watch!

Could easily ultimately be the difference between them making the playoffs or not.  But the way it goes.
