    Preseason starts tonight. I've never been so excited for preseason games.

    Bulls 95, Pacers 86

    Rough 1st quarter by chicago - no defense and 7 turnovers had Indy up 11 after 1, 33-22. Defense then showed up, holding Indy to about 34% from the field. Nice opening game between two of the teams that should make the playoffs in the East.

    Cavs win!!!!!

    In 15 minutes Kyrie Irving had 21 points, 6 boards, 3 assists, and 2 steals. 5 turnovers though :(
    In 14 minutes Tristan Thompson had 11 points, 7 boards, and 3 blocks. Are there no foul outs in preseason cuz he committed 8 fouls!!

    I hope this Dwight Howard Trade talk doesn't go into the season. I hope he's dealt before the start of the season, but i find that unlikely!

    Hope he keeps it up... but Irving needs to put on some muscle if he wants to last the season.

    Bobcats open up with a win with an overall team effort. I was very surprised how well Byron Mullens played and I did not know he had some range.

    Are Miami and Denver this good? Or is Dallas just REALLY bad right now. I am thinking the latter...

    Kyrie Irving looked....like a rookie that played 11 games last year...Tristan Thompson? Looks like the real deal ant PF for the Cavs.

    I don't agree with giving Kyrie the start. But damn it seemed like Sessions loved the sixth man role. Jamison started extremely slow as well. Hollins is a fuckin bum. Get Samuels in there. He started at the end of last year and did well and had a great season. Don't know how in the hell Hollins got above him in the rotation. Maybe it was a matchup thing. I can't say this, but i'm actually looking forward to Semih Erden coming back.

    Dwight, Hedo, and Redick all score 20+ points in a win against the rockets. This is the kind of balance we need.

    That's awesome where were your seats? and yes it was a great way to start the season. The Cable Box was electric tonight especially when Kemba came off the bench and when they showed Cam and Derek Jeter on the screen.

    Bulls playing sloppy for the second straight game. They got away with it against the Lakers but it doesn't look like they will tonight against GS. The warriors backcourt is killing the Bulls, especially in the area of stealing awful passes by the bulls.

    And its a bad sign that the bulls haven't figured out how to attack teams doubling rose at every turn. Not a good sign.

    I haven't caught any of today's game, but the biggest thing i noticed against LA is the fact that they don't seemed to have developed anything for Rip. Dude stood still more in that game than i think he ever has in his entire career.

    When he wasn't on the bench in foul trouble, refs called him for heavy breathing on Kobe a couple of times.

    Does it make me a bad person to want to root for the Thunder this year over the Cavs? I have been in DFW now for 6 years. I have watched the Thunder get better each year. I have been to 8 games (here and in OKC) over the past 5 seasons, and dammit, Russell Westbrook is my favorite player in the league...

    I feel horrible about wanting to desert the Cavs, but...but...it's just so hard to stay focused on them when i can watch almost every Thunder game here and i never get to see the Cavs...

    Perhaps I am just ranting and drinking beer...
