Still not back to his college form. Lets see if it goes in. Fultz is still a great passer and good at getting to the hole. Also a good defender

Not so much time, but also can mess up the flow of the game. Especially when you're watching Hou play. I think its smart what they are trying to do, bc it is a copy cat league. We dont need a bunch of players coming up and focusing on how to draw fouls and get to the line, which obviously is not good for the game.

Not sure how this changes any of the foul baiting. You get fouled you still have a chance at the same number of points. It doesn't make getting fouled any less valuable.

If anything it makes more favorable. Down 2 late? Only have to make one shot instead of two.

Its gonna take that into consideration. Depending on the time of the game and type of foul

Final minutes can drag out when teams intentionally foul.

Yea, I don't see any issue with that. I actually think NBA went a little too far with only 2 timeouts in the last 2 minutes. I think they should have 2 full TO and 1 20 sec. timeout (to advance the ball) in the last 2 mins. There were too many games last season where teams were down by 1-3 pts with couple seconds left and had to inbound the ball from their own half and made the game anti-climatic.

It's not what they're doing anyways that's just the only time I think free throws can be time consuming and ugly to a game.

Harden's new move is a one legged three? Yeah his teammates are gonna get tired of that pretty quickly.

Zion measured at 6'6 (which i think is also rounded up).

Curious to see how tall is Durant (I think he's 7'0). I think Dwight will be like 6'9 or something
