With just two weeks and change to go before training camps open, The Committee (of One) is ready to unveil its 1-to-30 pulse take in the wake of an unpredictable offseason
Hope everyone remembers this is Marc’s “before the preseason starts” rankings. Your team will surely be in the Top 10 by the time the season starts....
Much respect to your Bucks respect 🦌 🏆
Whatever the 'over' is on the Raptors, take it. Toronto's roster has championship experience, familiarity, and the right blend of kids and veterans. Precious Achiuwa for Most Improved Player? Get your money down.
I thought Dubs, Nuggets and the Clippers are legit top3 in the west atm. We see eye to eye.
Marc - dont expect access to a table at Nick and Sams anytime soon after putting Dallas at 13!
Waiting for the NBA to force the jazz to change GMs after their tanking as an all star host. What a black eye for the sport. Funny how 5-6 teams are outright doing what philly did but now no one cares.
I agree on these minus the clips and nuggets. Fine, they got some great players back from injury but let's see them still perform at a high level. And still don't trust Denver to win.
Also, just finished watching winning time which, even if it is not accurate, is a great show
I recall last year pre-season the Raptors were not expected in the playoffs. Don’t underestimate Anunoby’s impact on this team which was shown when he missed some games last. Achiuwa was not the same player at season end as he was at the beginning. His in season development was quite something. Give the Raptors a summer of development along with Barnes and there is clear upside (or optimism?). Also with Thad Young from the start of the season could be a wild card.
There is no better time for this than the first day of the NFL season. Especially since the NFL is now trying to steal Christmas and MLK Day from the NBA. Time to play hardball with them! (Or is the wrong metaphor.) Only thing wrong with your timing is that the WNBA finals start today, and that deserves a day to itself.
Here’s hoping that the Atlanta Hawks ranking is way off. Team was hammered with injuries and Covid issues last season, but that gets ignored. If a national hoops writer isn’t dismissing the Hawks, then he/she isn’t a national hoops writer.
