Anyone looking forward to seeing Kyrie, Luca, and a washed Klay play defense?

Nobody in the league can guard that roster.   Mavs improved greatly so far.   Grimes and Marshall are two stellar defenders

Pretty sure the addition of a shooter who’s a decade past his prime doesn’t make them harder to guard

They blew it when they let Brunson go. It’s a shame because Luka is fun to watch.

Brunson was best when Luka was injured. I don't think they could have been successful together- Luka is just too ball dominant. As great as Luka is, his antics make it fun to watch him lose.

LOL.   You serious?   Klay is one of the best shooters in history.  He is replacing Derick Jones, a career 32 percent 3 point shooter.  Klay will be shooting wide open shots all season long with Luka

It’s for a $16 million contract annually, and it figures to increase rotational flexibility and veteran presence. It seems to make plenty of sense.

It makes sense if you expect him to shoot open corner 3s coming off the bench for 15 minutes a game.

For the amount of roster obligation, that or playing half a game could actually work for them

It’s possible he needed a full year back to fully recover from the injuries. Possible but not probable. I think he got plenty of open looks last year playing with Steph. It’s probably worth a gamble for Dallas.

I feel bad for Bronny.  No one would have drafted him without having his Dad be Lebron. It seems a lose-lose situation. Imagine if MJ had come back to play with his kids who were decent college players but not NBS guys.

Plenty of people in sports have jobs because of their last names. The Lakers are owned by one of them

Warriors are done.   They will be a lottery team this season
