In the aftermath of his father's passing, last night was OG's first pre-season action.  Glad it was a pre-season game for Vic, because his stats for last night are uglier than PUke Pete.

From Bleacher Report:  Updated Trade Packages and Landing Spots for Timberwolves Star Jimmy Butler

Purely a speculative article but OG and EG both mentioned as possible trade bait for Butler.

Precarious time for Towns. This is the first point I've seen him start to receive some criticism...this time last year, he was the Golden Boy and the future of NBA big men. Now it seems some are doubting a bit. Reading that story, I flashed back to that Kobe interview in a parking lot somewhere when he tore into Andrew Bynum...I'm not a Kobe hater but I don't think that guy was ever the same and he certainly never reached his potential. That's not all Kobe's fault by any means but it might light even more of a fire under the TWolves to get Butler out of there, before things escalate and maybe it does start to impact Towns negatively.

So once Fultz is out of the NBA I really want an indepth story of what happened to him. You don't forget how to shoot/play basketball to the degree he has, that doesn't happen. Its some voodoo stuff

I really think that he and his trainer (who I believe Markelle is very close to) tried to change his shot mechanics and they botched it then he got the yips and just forgot how shoot completely. He was already really reliant on his jumper so without it he's just not any good. Defenses have no reason to respect him offensively.

Opening night for a number of Hoosiers and what an opening night it was for Vonleh as a Knick - a double double with 12 pts. and 10 reb. in just 16 min. of action.   Yogi got the start for his new team the Kings.  Per Crimson and Cream, OG suffered an injury which accounts for his limited minutes.  Later saw it's described as a right orbital contusion and uncertain for Friday's game.  For those of you not well-versed in high falutin' medical terminology, he got poked in the eye!

So the Cavs replaced Lebron with Woodbury.
