Good timing.

Couldn't have happened to a better fan base.

Insight to the G League

Maybe the ‘G’ actually stands for ‘Guinea Pig,’ what with the way the NBA uses the league as a vital testing ground.

This season, the G League will experiment with two-minute overtimes (as opposed to the standard five-minute OTs), a Coach’s Challenge (each coach gets one per game which can only be used on called fouls, goaltending, basket interference and out-of-bounds calls), and four-person referee crews (as opposed to the standard three, and only during the month of November).

“We did (the four-person referee project) in very limited fashion last year, at Long Islands Nets games, while they were played at Barclays,” Turner said. “I believe it was eight or nine games that they did there, and obviously that - in and of itself - is a very small sample set. So we really wanted to take the month of November to roll out that test across our footprint for all games, so not only for our referees but for our coaches and GMs and other observers to really understand it and gain perspective and we can gather feedback etc. ..This will just give us a more robust sample to look at.”

4 referees on the court at one time, seems like a lot of referees.

The Long Island Nets....feels like a diss, unless they just got kicked out of Barclays too.

ESPN Power Rankings

4. Minnesota Timberwolves
2017-18 record: 7-3
Previous ranking: 13

The Timberwolves got off to a 2-3 start but proceeded to reel off five straight wins. It's the first time they've won five in a row in a single season since January 2009.


Also the first time they've been 4 games above .500 since January 2007.

My God this is a terrible franchise.

This week's power rankings

23. Charlotte Hornets
2017-18 record: 6-9
Kemba Walker scored 47 points, the second most in his career, in Friday's three-point loss against the Bulls. According to Elias Sports Bureau research, the Hornets have lost 11 straight games decided by three points or fewer, tied for the second-longest streak in the NBA since 1979 when the 3-point line was implemented.

Outside of Kemba this team is pretty terrible.

He is currently averaging a paltry 8.8 ppg whilst shooting at a 35% rate overall (33% from 3pt). Is that good?

It doesn’t sound too good to me.

I'd flip these two honestly. BK sucks, but they have no reason to tank and I see them winning 28-30 games. Hornets seem to be quasi-jinxed.


I could see that, but outside of Russell what does Brooklyn have? What does Russell have?? They need that Texas kid to step up quickly to reach that over. I have irrational confidence in Charlotte.
