Jahlil Okafor’s trainer, David Alexander is also the trainer to Victor Oladipo who also got ripped last summer:

Today’s Panel:


First Half

Melo on coming off bench last year in OKC (September 2007):

Woj:ย Melo signs 1-year, $2.4M deal with Rockets |ย Think Melo’s cool with coming off bench in Houston?

“I would be stunned if he came off the bench this year” – Young

“I like him as the starting 3, 4. For Houston, it’s a good acquisition” – Arnovitz

“I think ‘Bench Melo’ could succeed because he could get some Melo time” – Sedano

Should Cleveland accept I.T.’s apology?

“He committed a gaff” – Arnovitz

“I think you should accept someone’s apology when they offer one” – Young

“They (the players who went to CLE) kind of referred to the situation as a [bleep] show” – Sedano

Bonus: Joakim Noah shares thoughts on Cleveland in 2010

Stan Van Gundy’s coaching future in jeopardy?

Here’s what he said on the ‘Real Talk Basketball with Rex Walters Podcast:’

โ€œI donโ€™t have any idea. Iโ€™m sort of as lost as Iโ€™ve been. Every other time, Iโ€™ve known or had a pretty good idea that I was still gonna try. If I could get a job [for next season], I had planned to coach. Now, I really donโ€™t know. Iโ€™m really lost right now. I donโ€™t have an idea.”

“It’s a really fickle industry” – Arnovitz

“Coaches get recycled. I do think he’ll get a chance to coach again because he maintains a great reputation” – Young

“I love to see Stan get another shot. He’s been a real innovator” – Young

Michael Porter Jr. says he’s pain-free after back surgery

“Absolutely not. Take your time here and get healthy” – Young

“They’re (Nuggets) playing with house money. I don’t totally buy that he is pain-free” – Arnovitz

Porter Jr.ย hating on Doncic?

A fan commented on the above post and Porter Jr. liked it!

Does Melo make Rockets bigger threat to Warriors?
Click here to read more about how Melo will fit with the Rockets (By Kevin Pelton)

“Melo can be a helpful player for the Rockets” – Pelton

“Houston’s system is going to fit him more favorably” – Young

“Carmelo is kind of expendable” – Arnovitz

“Will there be a matchup issue that will cause him to move to the bench” – Young

Expect West to be more or less competitive? (Per ESPN’s Summer Forecast)

“Way more. You can map out 11-12 teams that are legitimately in the playoff discussion in the Western Conference” – Young

“It’s going to be a battle royale. It’s going to extend far beyond the 8-9 (seeds) this year” – Arnovitz

“More competitive because LeBron is in the conference now” – Sedano

“I think Anthony Davis is going to be the MVP this year” – Arnovitz

All business ๐Ÿ’ช #LakeShow

A post shared by Los Angeles Lakers (@lakers) on

“It’s really fascinating to figure out whether this new Lakers experiment is going to work” – Pelton

“The Lakers are win-win for the broadcasters” – Arnovitz

“They deserve more because they’re going to be a bigger draw” – Young

Games you’re most excited for?

Sedano: Nov. 15th – Warriors/Rockets

“I want to see where do the Rockets now measure up against the Warriors with the changes? How will that affect them?”

Arnovitz: Feb. 22nd – Spurs/Raptors
Honorable mention: Jan. 26 – Warriors/Celtics

“Watching DeMar DeRozan return to Toronto. The ovation he gets in that great arena from those fans who love him, whom he loved”

“I am somebody who does believe that if the Celtics are healthy, I think they got enough”

Pelton: Jan. 3rd – Raptors/Spurs

“Certainly the most anticipated and most dramatic return since KD to OKC”

Young: Feb. 7th –ย Lakers/Celtics

“When you add in Kyrie Irving vs LeBron James, there’s an extra layer there. And they’re really good teams”

Dwyane Wadeย rules out China, says Heatย or retirement

“My best intelligence says yes” – Arnovitz

“He has a lot more to give. Got in great shape when he got to the Heat last year” – Young

“There are a lot of guys, particularly the guard position, that look up to Dwyane and I think he understands that” – Sedano

“I would love to see Dwyane get ‘one more time’ around” – Sedano

“He’s arguably a top-3 shooting guard of all-time” – Sedano
