The NBA is about two days old, so what better time than now to draw conclusions from as little information as possible. Here goes:
—Liking Ben Simmons early. Liking Ben Simmons a lot.
—Not sure what the Pelicans are going for with Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. Can’t see it working. … whole league going in another direction and for good reason. I tweeted that it’s like that scene in the Poisedin Adventure when the people headed for the deck didn’t realize the ship had capsized.
This one is a tough one to see having a happy ending.
—Warriors are going to be fine but the Rockets have some people who can spread the floor.
—So unfair that the Colangelos, the NBA’s golden boys, get to run the 76ers. They couldn’t have put together a team like that in their wildest dreams.
—Things are set up for Washington to emerge in the East. No reason the Wizards can’t wind up the No. 2 seed.
