NBA season is long, playoff caliber teams will be obvious.

Just cancel some games and go by win percentage. The bottom seeds have very little chance of advancing. By the time the playoffs start the vaccine will be available to anybody that wants it.

Last year you can't tell me the Heat upset the Bucks with fans in the stands. Unless you think the Bucks drop the first two at home in a packed arena.

NBA IMO has a bigger problem, James Harden and Kyrie Irving. Couple of team cancers that don't want to play. Fully guaranteed contracts in the NBA brings out the worst in many players.

HMM...wouldn't you rather have LeVert....money didn't work? Who knows if Oladipo can stay healthy.

I see Levert is signed for 3 more years....Oladipo is a UFA after this year. Salary dump?

LeVert is a nice glue guy, but his legs and feet are made of tissue paper.

Although a lot can change between now and 2025/27, I presume at least the 2021/23 pick swaps won't happen?

Probably.

Those would be the worst case scenario swaps for Brooklyn. Kyrie implodes, Durant reinjures his leg, Harden weighs 450 pounds...

Wow...

Reminder: James Harden AND Kevin Durant AND Kyrie Irving have player options on the final year of their contracts, which means all 3 players can become unrestricted free agents after next season.

This seems important considering the Nets traded away all their first-round picks

Good thing I'm not in charge of the Brooklyn Nets. I would have pursued Beal rather than Harden, and find a way to keep Allen out of the deal.
