oh it's tomorrow
2016 Opening Day Lineup by Draft Position:3rd Overall19th Overall34th Overall56th Overall60th OverallMean draft position: 34.42017 Opening Day Lineup by Draft Position:1st Overall3rd Overall3rd Overall3rd Overall9th OverallMean draft position: 3.8I know itís been talked about before, but, even as I donít like all the summerís moves, I find it really impressive that the starting lineup essentially improved from being a 2nd round pick, on average, to a top 3 pick. Draft position isnít all that matters, but there is a reason that some basketball projection systems include it as a variable.Also:2016 starting lineup average age: 28 years old2017 starting lineup average age: 25 years oldI think youth is ultimately going to be what limits this team this year, but the combination of draft pedigree improvement and significantly younger in age helps demonstrate the teamís ceiling, and why most of us (myself included despite some misgivings) are so excited.
Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.

Also from Clevis Murray's twitter feed: "The NBA has announced teams are "prohibited" from resting healthy players for "any high-profile, nationally televised game."".So what is the NBA going to do when a player "tweaks an ankle" in the first possesion of a late regular season game? What a wad of nonsense.
