๐Ÿ€ NBA 2021-22 - Get Switch or Die Tryin' ๐Ÿ€

Training camps open tomorrow, thought we could use a thread on what should be a very interesting seasonโ€ฆ

Will the Nets live up to the hype, or will Kyrieโ€™s antivaxx stance derail their whole season?

Where will Ben Simmons be playing in December, Philly, Minnesota or Guangzhou?

LeBron: MVP or the beginning of the end?

Will the Raptors surprise everyone and make the playoffs with ease? yes indeed

โ€œUnsatisfiedโ€ is a tune

oh I was wondering if there was a new thread yet

canโ€™t believe I didnโ€™t notice this before :boot:

also: Bembry and Millsap are at the Nets now?

Jordan and Nunn are at the Lakers now?

(think I knew about Nunn, actually)


anyway!

Hawks for the East, 70+ wins, WORLD CHAMPS in 6 againstโ€ฆ the Suns

either that, or the Bucks to repeat

interested to see how the Bulls go with DeRozan & Zo added to Vuฤ & LaVine

also interested to see how the Wizards shape up with their post-Westbrook haul, and how the young Rockets push on

Regarding the Hawks, I tend to agree with Zach Loweโ€™s take that theyโ€™ll be a better team this year, but not get as far in the playoffs.

if they get going and keep the key pieces fit, they can go to the finals

I expect other teams to improve (Bulls, Heat), but once Hawks are fit and firing (they areโ€ฆ not, not just yet), they can go toe-to-toe with anyone

Cam and Dre Hunter being fit will be huge. like, both guys are defensive studs with improving scoring. and Cam will be starting from the bench!

this dunk, btw

I actually think both the Bulls and Heat are quite overrated, and Philly have a lot of potential if they can shift that Australian nincompoop for something good (CJ McCollum?). Hawks will be right in the mix, but I canโ€™t see anything other than a Nets/Bucks ECF, even if Kyrie skips the season forโ€ฆ reasons. Guess it depends on playoff seeding.

These names are a blast from the past, immediately transported me back to late 00s fantasy basketball anxiety.

Any interest in a fantasy NBA dynasty league? Iโ€™ve got precisely one season of experience under my belt now, so ready to take it on. Could join one with randoms but would rather do DiS and DiS adjacent. Weโ€™ll have to get cracking if we do. Iโ€™ve set it up and if I get 8 people playing, great. If not, never mind.

Go on then

@shrewbie I might have given you bad advice

now the deficit is like 70 points

@profk @jont2001 @greenarrow if you guys are interested, sign up on the link above ASAP - weโ€™ll do a slow draft and Iโ€™ll start it as soon as weโ€™ve got the 8. Youโ€™ll get four hours per pick, but obviously you donโ€™t have to take four hours, and Iโ€™ll pause it overnight. Hopefully weโ€™ll squeeze it in before the season starts.

I think that would leave us one more spot, four are taken already.

No thanks, I tried it last year but couldnโ€™t get into it, Iโ€™ll leave it for someone who can get more involved

Weโ€™re at 7/8, one spot left. Will leave it open for a while, then Iโ€™ll see if I can round up a UK random from Sleeper.

Heat resting all their main guys, but Trae still looks mean af tonight. mid-season form, but looking even better than heโ€™s ever looked in any mid-season

like the playoffs were his Frieza Saga and heโ€™s come back from space on another level entirely
