And in a shocking development, neither Nerlens Noel nor Derrick Rose played tonight.

PS The Sixers' starting 5 tonight:

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, PF
JaKarr Sampson, PF
Henry Sims, C
Tony Wroten, G
Hollis Thompson, SG

That may be the worst starting 5 I've ever seen. Earlier in this thread, I said this team might win 8 games. That's looking ridiculously optimistic now.


Tony Wroten isn't a complete embarrassment. The rest of these guys...Christ. Although they did compete tonight.

Did anybody else notice that Popovich rested Duncan and Ginobli last night, in a nationally televised game, against their undefeated, in state rivals, Houston?

I don't think Adam Silver is gonna like that. It's the second week of the season. Popovich has balls and doesn't give a fuck. I like that.

The Cavs are a circus:

What the hell are you talking about?
As JK pointed out in the post that followed yours, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, nee Chris Jackson, blazed that trail almost a quarter century ago.

If you read the article it could be possible Waiters made his decision to wait in the locker room without discussing it with management as he was out for the next pre-game. The quotes didn't portray Waiters as unhappy or disgruntled so I'm not sure where circus fits in.
Feel free to hate LBJ but in pro sports this kerfuffle doesn't belong in the same tent with "circuses" like Ray Rice, Roger Goodell, Adrian Peterson, A-Rod, etc.

So acting like an idiot is blazing the trail?

What exactly does the national anthem contain that offends the Muslim faith?

Not only is there nothing in the Star Spangled Banner that would offend a Muslim, refusing to show the proper respect for one's country of origin is actually contrary to the Koran.

Sure, I didn't endorse the trail. I just said it existed.
If the trail includes ramming fully fueled jets into skyscrapers and beheading journalists on videotape then not standing for the Anthem is a relative stroll to Grandma's house.

Hell if I know, probably the obedience to something other than their religion.

While I may agree with you on the basic premise of "When in the US do as the Americans do," you can walk into pretty much any scholastic sporting event and see kids acting as if they are in various stages of a painful death because they have to stand. Having been coerced into attending a few volleyball matches this year I've noticed that all the players who are predominantly (if not entirely) from Christian homes in America feel the need to mime along with the song by swinging their arms during the "banner yet wave" lyric.

Does that make high school volleyball a circus?

Do Lebron, Irving, and Waiters play high school volleyball?

Davis is awesome.

Crazy that a guy can be that great of a rim protector AND run the floor like he does.

his athleticism is just fucking ridiculous for someone his height. When he got to the NBA after his freshman year at Kentucky, I thought that he'd be an elite defender, but his offensive output is so much better than anyone thought. He's a top 5 player in the league and I don't think it's really that much of a conversation.

A lot of people are projecting Embiid to have that sort of upside if he can stay healthy. But since it's the 76ers, he's far more likely to go the Greg Oden route.

So to those who actually watch, is Boston any good? They're a couple of near misses in Dallas and Toronto away from 5-1 despite a lot of injuries. Looks like Evan Turner is blossoming into the player he was supposed to be.

They play an exciting brand of hoops and have a good young coach so they are always going to give max effort. With the loss of Smart I expect them to fall off a bit, but they are definitely a frisky team who will be a bitch to play on a nightly basis with Rondo/Jeff Green.

Yep, although they're still a work in progress defensively ,especially inside. They have negative rim protection when Sullinger and Olynyk are both in.

Yeah, teams that have inside post presence will eat them up.
