I'll be watching the body language tonight of Jaylen, Tatum and Smart and how they interact with Kyrie. May tell us something about what they really think of him.

But that little side show aside, I'm looking at the guys trying to get into the rotation and how they perform.  There are regular minutes available if someone can earn them.  Also rookies tend to be up and down so Pritchard/Nesmith Round 2 will be interesting.

ok....here is chance to eyeball Tatum s real height .   Vs KD who we know is a solid 7ft er.   

see how they size up.

No not sure if this is serious or joking but Kevin Durant's rookie combine measurement in 2007 without shoes was 6'-9".  He is currently listed as 6'-10" on Brooklyn Nets official team website.

Now Durant growing approximately 1" in 13 years is something I believe as possible but I have a hard time believing that Tatum grew and is now the same size as him.  I think it is great that they issue real measurements now.  There were clearly a lot of phony measurements being referenced.

As to the game, it is tough on the Celtics right now with 4 key players injured, 3 of which (Walker, Theis, Thompson) are potential starters.  You are basically throwing out combinations that have never played together and have hardly practiced together.   Hard to make any judgments on players or the team as a whole under the circumstances other than to expect a slow start to the season.

Will be interested to see how Durant looks. The guy was such a stud and joy to watch play. Absolutely fantastic offensive player that really makes it look easy. Hope that injury doesnít tank the rest of his career.

Looking at the Brooklyn roster, they have a lot of offensive firepower but their defense is going to be an absolute dumpster fire.

Also, will Kyrie actually play?

I recall reading that Smart and Kyrie got along better than the others, can't recall the source though.

If anyone's going to lay a hard foul on Irving, my money is on Jaylen. And as long as there's no intent to injure, I am just fine with that.

We have Taco and TIMELORD, that should be enough. If needs be Brad will play Waters at center.

Hilarious!  He clearly has a superior intellect. 

Maybe, he mixed some peyote in with it.  It would make this game a lot of fun to watch.
