Seriously. Compare this years roster to the start of last season...
posted by Romy AquinoGoing into last night, the talk was all about the debut of Kyle Lowry with the Toronto Raptors and the chance for the fans to get their first look at the likely Raptors regular season starting five of Lowry / DeRozan / Fields / Bargnani / Valanciunas. But despite a solid night for Lowry (14 pts/6 ast) and a sick throwdown by Valanciunas....most of the news...
As the NBA preseason rolls on, the Brooklyn Nets faced off against the Washington Wizards at the Barclays Center.Nearing the end of the game, Nets guard Deron Williams was fouled hard by Wizards guard AJ Price while attempting a lay-up.After the foul, both had some words for each other but it looks like D-Will had the last laugh:
