NBA Season 2012-13. Draft and off-season 2013.

Pages

So... with the release of NBA 2k13 this week, it's about time to start thinking basketball.

Also, today the league announced fines for flopping!

ESPN has a season preview section, and of course a draft recap, if you've forgotten.

Pre-season games start this Friday, apparently with international team exhibition games.

Regular season starts Tues Oct 30.

BRING ON THE LINSANITY!!!!!

Rasheed Wallace officially signed today for the Knicks, giving them the oldest roster in NBA history.

So, we've got that going for us.

I am sad about basketball until Rubio starts playing. I do hope I get some quality Alexey Shved time, meanwhile.

Love me some Sheed. Hope he does well on Team Nursing Home.

I can't wait to see my first NBA game this year. To the Garden!

One of the rare seasons where I have little hope for the Blazers. It's going to be a season where I catch up with the team by looking at a couple box scores every week to see how the rookies are doing.

Kobe cuts loose on some ex-teammates.

"I almost won an MVP with Smush Parker and Kwame Brown on my team," Bryant said before Wednesday's 93-75 exhibition loss to Portland. "I was shooting 45 times a game. What was I supposed to do? Pass it to Chris Mihm or Kwame Brown?"

Ugh, stay classy Kobe.

Case in point of what happens to someone when they are given too much too young.

You know I recall Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Frazier, Kareem and Jordan doing a lot of these... NOT!

Well, it's not like the stuff he said isn't true. But yeah, why pick on those guys. They know they suck.

f*cking son of a bitch balls.

Just so we're clear, this post is related to the NBA season.

Er... trade? Injury? Hiring/firing?

The Lynx?

Good god, we are so old. So very, very old. Like, "Yo mamma so old..."-level old. I just need us to be better than the Nets, or else i'll never hear the end of it from my traitor Brooklyn friends.

Rubio got with hookers and blow?

Probably Love's injury. Out for at least 6 weeks.

Yeah, this was it. I was going to post a link later but I forgot that I posted.

Why would he be doing knuckle pushups? FFS.

Is that a common practice? On hardwood floors?

I googled and knew it was that. It was funnier to me to think that maybe it was about the Lynx losing on Sunday.

But, they won last night.

Oh. Then it's a wash, right?

You lose Kevin Love, but maybe you'll get a WNBA title parade.

Hey exhibition on TNT tonight. Am I crazy for watching that over baseball playoffs?

Knicks Raptors tomorrow in Montreal. Gonna walk over to see if I can snag cheap tickets from scalpers. Cheapest ticket this week was 40 which I'm not paying.

Is there any interest in a fantasy NBA league here?

I haven't paid much attention to the NBA the past 2 seasons and am looking for a reason to get back in to it. And now with no hockey, I'm going to be watching a lot of basketball after the World Series ends.

I was just thinking the same thing today. They were running fantasy NBA numbers up on the TV during Mike & Mike this morning on ESPN.

I only did fantasy basketball one time, and it was just a random group on ESPN. Don't really remember it, or if I even bothered to finish, it was a few years ago.

Not sure if we have enough interest here, or who would want to commish, or who would want to join, or what scoring rule set to follow. But it wouldn't hurt to talk about. We have a week from today (Tues) to get it all set up.

Eh, there's only like six NBA fans here. I'm one, and I'm not particularly interested in fantasy sports anymore.

I do a fantasy league with some real life friends, but only barely. I'd love to do an auction draft, but honestly with the NBA the draft is the best part.

I would be interested in fantasy bball. Never participated in one before, but would like to try it if there is enough interest.

I'm down for fantasy basketball too.

Just purchased my League Pass.

Well that's 5 maybe? What do we need, 10-12 for a decent group size?
