LeBron James is a game time decision as opening night is finally here, the new-look Cavaliers and Celtics face off after their blockbuster summer trade and Eastern Conference Finals series. Kyrie Irving makes his return to Cleveland, where he won a championship, and will receive a video tribute after requesting to be traded. James has been quiet on him, but is commanding attention with his uncertainty due to a left ankle injury. Marcus Morris is out, and Jayson Tatum will make his NBA debut in his place as a starter. Isaiah Thomas will watch, awaiting return from his hip injury.

DFSR’s Doug Norrie and James Davis take to the Thursday podcast discussing a smaller three-game slate of NBA action. They start out talking about the trainwreck that are the Chicago Bulls who basically start the season running out a borderline D-League team with Dunn, Lavine, Mirotic and Portis all sidelined for a variety of reasons.
They also break down some thoughts on the new makeup of the Thunder and how the additions of Paul George and Carmelo Anthony will affect Russell Westbrook from a fantasy perspective.
And finally they try to make heads or tails of the new-look Clippers and a Lakers’ team likely to play fast and bad again this year.
It's game day! A new NBA season is upon us, and that means it's time to preview our Detroit Pistons. There's a lot to look forward to - new additions to the roster, healthy players, and even a new arena. But, the every season brings its own fears in tow, and this season is no different. Jamie, Jacob, and Ben dig into all those details and more in this season's preview. How good could this team be, and what would it take to get there? Who are the most important players and why? And what about Little Caeser's anyway?
Jason and Rich explore dynasty survivors: the last player from a dynasty to remain with the team.
From Gail Goodrich and Don Cheney to Randy Brown and Robert Parish, we look at each major pre and post expansion dynasty and who hung on through the final days of the dynasty. We examine how long the player remained with the franchise, why he was the last left and of course some fun facts along the way.
Just one game left in the New Orleans Pelicans' Preseason, and that can only mean that it's time for a substitute teacher preseason recap with Travis Tate and Trevor Ritchie of TheBirdWrites.com.
Trav and Trevor recap both Bulls games in addition to the Thunder matchup, discuss inconsistencies on the wing, how injuries will affect the start to the regular season, and what to expect from the Pels' opening night matchup with the Grizzlies just five days from today!

In the Season 3 premier of The HeadQuarters, Sean Woodley, Harsh Dave and John Gaudes react to Jonas Valanciunas' strong preseason, ponder the role of OG Anunoby, answer listener questions and more. This episode is brought to you by Loren Woods.
The NBA Regular Season is officially back, and that means we have real games to look forward to! The Clippers have a new and exciting team with a mixed bag of expectations, but a lot of fun on the court. How do Adithya, Robert, and Shapan think the Clippers will fare this year? What do they think of newcomers like Milos Teodosic, Danilo Gallinari, and Patrick Beverley? Will this team stay healthy? Do we have any predictions to make? And what about the rest of the league? Happy Basketball everyone!
No team in the NBA is built to go punch for punch with the Golden State Warriors. Not the Cleveland Cavaliers, not the Houston Rockets, not the Oklahoma City Thunder. The reigning champs remain in a league of their own, perfectly positioned to deliver an adequate encore to last year's 16-1 playoff romp.
Declaring the Warriors NBA champs in October isn't any fun, though. And that means we're in search of something, anything, anyone, any team, that can derail what is so obviously the best squad ever assembled.
To help figure out the impossible, Dan turned to Bleacher Report's Grant Hughes (@gthughes). He cannonballs into every possible pitfall and peril, however innocuous, facing the Warriors and decides what their biggest concern should ultimately be—insofar as they must be concerned at all.
Is it their turnovers? Surprising plainness in crunch time? Wonky three-point shooting from the Death Lineup? Championship complacency? Something else? And is there even a team that registers as a remote threat to their throne?
Because versatility is king, Dan and Grant also discuss whether Stephen Curry is more important to the Warriors than Kevin Durant; whether Klay Thompson has become underrated; whether Nick Young will ever see the floor; whether Draymond Green will win another Defensive Player of the Year award; and whether rookie Jordan Bell is set to become a rich man's Day-Day.
Durant's covert social media accounts may or may not have come up, too.
