2018-2019 Regular Season

I’m starting this post early in order to flow more easily from the Draft and Free Agency post. And because SI came out with their NBA top 100 list.

SI RANKS TOP 100 PLAYERS

Surprises there as always, which I know is part of the point. Plenty of commentary to follow.

Another reason to start early is simply that the league will shift dramatically because of off-season changes. In short many more things to watch for and discuss this year starting with LeBron’s move West, Kawhi’s move East, Hayward’s effect on what is already an incredible Boston team, Warrior Boogie, Philly hype that Fultz has his shot back and the incredible talent coming in from the new draft class.

One thing I wonder going into the season: will this season be different in that several teams unlikely to make the playoffs will still be among the most interesting to follow? Suns, Dallas, Orlando, Clippers to name 4 that are likely to provide entertainment showing off some great new talent. I don’t remember any other year when their was excitement from so many teams that likely have no chance at the playoffs.

Anyhow, the early timing here is mostly because of SI’s list of it’s top 100 players. Here are the top 50 plus a few that come after that. The comments floor is now OPEN!
