Who made the best off season moves? Are we seeing it now in preseason?

I think the Rockets and Cleveland won the offseason. Houston looks ready to roll and if they can stay healthy, should be a good time. Cleveland looks completely different, it will take some time watching the new squad to get a real feel for them. Once the General LeBron is on the court with Thomas, I think its gonna break the offense wide open.

Cavs are ******* stacked - Idc how old Rose and Wade are, if they stay healthy, they are loaded with talent.

Cant wait for opening day, Cs and Cavs.

I think Rose and Wade will be healthier because they wont be crushed by carrying the team on their shoulders.

I think the Jazz and the nets will surprise everyone this year because of their depth.

Hot takes:

- OKC strongest off season ONLY if PG13 stays (half credit if Melo stays too).
- CLE is suuuper stacked, I think people are quick to overlook age but it's going to hinge on this. Curious to see what Rose and Jeff Green can do, personal favorites that was always disappointed to see them fizzle out.
- MIN going to be exciting to watch for the long haul, like a marginally better Portland.
- GSW did you see them effortlessly throw up 15/25 (60%) from 3 against MIN? These were mostly contested but didn't matter, the shooting power on that team is f'd, no rust from the summer
- MIA will creep into the top 4 of the east
- NOP one of the more interesting narratives, it could either be really awesome or a total dumpster fire with Rondo + Cousins although they can play together.

Portland gon creep into the playoffs as a 6-8 seed. Will make for a super fun matchup come playoffs (assuming their big three stay healthy).

Charlotte gon wind up the four seed in the East. Monk will be a starter by the all-star break. Dwight will find SOME of his mojo.

Cleveland is a crap shoot.

Long term that could be a good thing. Forcing Clifford to play Monk more.

Just look at their preseason highlights. They're 3-0 and I'm not saying their wins are anything spectacular because they played two crap teams (Heat and twice against the Knicks), but if you look at how well they played and how many people are contributing, you'll see that they're much improved.

Just look at the last game. They blew the Knicks out by 30 something, but during garbage time when the Nets brought out third string bench players nobody has ever heard of, the bench warmers not only managed to maintain the lead, they increased it and it was against NYK starters. I know preseason doesn't mean much, but there's only room for improvement here on out.

Other than a weak link in the center position, they're pretty solid.

Dwyane Wade of Cleveland Cavaliers named fifth and final starter

Quote:
Wade will join a starting lineup of Derrick Rose at point guard, LeBron James at small forward, Jae Crowder at the 4 and Kevin Love at the 5
I dunnnnnnoooo mannnnn. It seems like they would want to keep some miles off Wade.

Yeah agreed. They want to keep JR going early then Wade to lead secondary unit.

I really hope IT comes back to MVP candidate form though. Not keeping my hopes up. DRose looked great in the pre-season games. LeBron should elevate his game.

Totally, I would have Rose and Wade off the bench. Maybe they will do that with IT comes back, Lue does seem to know whats up in most cases.

I just hope Wade and Rose are doing that hyperbolic time chamber training that LeBron does and extend their career with whatever training regimen or juice that Bron Bron is on nomsaiyan
