My goals for this game:
1) no injuries
2) Bagley shows a smooth jumper (is even playing?)
3) Halliburton looks like NBA prospect

I’m watching the Blazers telecast. HORRIBLE. The colour analyst (Richard somebody) is always whining about something, or responding sarcastically.

Everything else political aside, Grant Napear was an amazing play-by-play, and with Jerry Reynolds at the wing, they were the best part of the Kings organization.

Looking like last season on Team D. Fox’s shot looks bad. Real Bad. I was expecting him to come out and put his imprint on the game. Not liking what I see, so far. On the positive, Hield is blowing up his trade value.

Aren’t we saying that every year. It’s only one preseason game. It’s only 10 games in. It’s only 40 games… Ad nauseum. C’mon. John Wall and Boogie Cousins have been injured most of the past 2 years and they came in made an impact on Game 1.

Nobody going to respect Fox from anywhere Between mid range mad deep. He has to attack and look for the assist but teams will be satisfied with fouling Ofx because he’s not a good free throw shooter. He’s just kind of got weird problems as a good player.

Does NOT look like an All Star. His outside shot looks awful. It’s only one game. But, I was expecting to see some new wrinkles and some uptick in this game. He looks abysmal so far. It’s only one preseason game. So, no fire alarms, yet. If he’s playing like this up to the AS break, then this Max contract is going to hurt for years.
