Keep this thread for all IGT. I'll update with new posts throughout to separate the games.

I know this is going to come across as totally sarcastic.... but I can't wait to watch the Bulls go 30-52. I hope this season goes similar to how the 2014-15 Cubs seasons went -- you see the obvious struggles of a young team learning and growing together, but you also see them developing chemistry and improving.

My expectations are really high for Carter -- he has all the tools and disposition to be an All-Star. Hopefully Lauri can transition back in after his injury and we can have a nice scoring punch with him, LaVine and Carter. Defense, especially on the perimeter, is probably going to be non-existent. Oh well -- I'm glad Bulls basketball is back.

I feel like if they're healthy, they're a playoff team in the East. But who knows. They already aren't healthy though, so they may get off to a horrid start.

I wish being a playoff team in the East meant something.

I feel like a run towards the 8th seed is best case scenario. Boston, Philly, Toronto, Milwaukee, and Indiana are locks, to me. Washington, Miami, Charlotte, Detroit, and Cleveland figure to be much more equipped to battle for the last 3 spots. I have the Bulls in the same boat as the Knicks -- interesting talent to keep me going, but not enough defense and injury question keep them out.

The team has potential to have exciting offensive games, but we all know they're going nowhere unless one of these guys magically takes the steps to stardom. That or we strike gold in the non lottery portion of the draft again because our current trajectory places us just outside. We'll see what happens though, at least the NBA is back.

Yeah, I'm pumped to know that Golden State will win again.
You never know.... their entire starting five could die? I'm more interested to see if they keep their core together after this season. If they win again, I would bet Durant leaves for NY.

Assuming they don't choke and actually lose to Houston this time.
I don't think that will happen. I honestly think Carmelo is just a cancer. Maybe not as a teammate (or maybe, idk), but as a player.

I mean, yeah, if there are some major injuries, then things could change. But at that point, it would be 1 of 2 teams that will win it all then.

The NBA will be interesting again once this super-mega-ultra team gets broken up. IMO.

It wont matter, because you still have teams that are stockpiled and ha e enough flexibility to stay ahead of the curve. Unless a team like Utah or Milwaukee strikes gold again, most teams are just playing for the participation trophy.

The NBA is in an awful state where most of the talent ends up congregated on like 2 rosters and everyone else is left high and dry with no chance of really competing. Not that I'm expecting it to be like the NFL where the parity is strong, but we're very much on the other extreme right now.

Not sure what the fix is...but there's probably a lot of incompetent GMs out there.
