How has Zion looked in preseason, how do Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram fit into the mix, who will close games for this group, and how good can the defense be with talent but also inexperience? Plus we make predictions for the Pels season.
Then Ethan Strauss on LeBron James’ comments on China and Daryl Morey, plus his thoughts on how players and coaches should handle this situation and where we think Steve Kerr has gone awry.
Finally, Brian Lewis of the New York Post looks at the Nets’ season, including KD’s outlook for playing this year, whether they’re improved over last year without KD, the playing time battles on the wing and at center, and finally predictions for the Nets this year.
