David Aldridge: Detroit, for sure. A 10-3 mark out of the gate is stunning, no matter the opposition, for the Pistons. I love Avery Bradley and what he brings to any team, but his presence alone can’t explain how Tobias Harris is playing at an All-Star pace and how Andre Drummond has improved so significantly from the foul line (though he is beginning to regress from his NBA Christmas jerseys ridiculous numbers the first week/week and a half). But, the Pistons’ upcoming schedule is formidable: at Milwaukee tonight, a Minnesota/Cleveland back-to-back next Sunday and Monday and road games at OKC, Boston, Philly, Washington, San Antonio and Milwaukee through the first week of December — followed by home tilts with Golden State and Boston. Yikes.

Steve Aschburner: If someone had told you a month ago the Detroit Pistons would win 10 of their first 13 games, you would have raised a hand, stopped him in mid-sentence and politely asked if you could switch the conversation to Russian election conspiracies. But it’s true, and the Pistons’ happy back-to-back set out West a couple weeks back (beating the LA Clippers and the Golden State Warriors) isn’t the only reason. Point guard Reggie Jackson is healthy, forward Tobias Harris is East player of the week-worthy with a burgeoning 3-point game and center Andre Drummond is playing up to his max NBA Christmas jerseys contract now. Detroit’s offensive improvement unexpectedly makes it a Top 10 team on both ends. Now if only folks would show up in greater numbers to new Little Caesars Arena; a team that’s 7-1 at home should rank higher than 13th in NBA attendance.

Take Denver Nuggets great Alex English for example, who played for one of the highest scoring teams in the 1980s. In a record-scoring game between his Denver Nuggets and the Detroit Pistons, in which the two teams combined for 370 points, only four 3-pointers were attempted in that cheap authentic NBA jerseys game.

But let’s not kid ourselves. The 3-pointer has completely changed the game, and in today’s NBA it has become imperative to not only utilize it, but to do so effectively as a team. That is of course, if you want to have any chance whatsoever to win a championship for NBA Christmas jerseys. After all, could you imagine cheap sports jerseys and the Golden State Warriors shooting mid-range shots all night?

And how about the bigs? Remember them? Long gone are the back-to-the-basket days of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the finesse in the paint shown by the likes of Hakeem Olajuwon, or the unstoppable force inside that was Shaquille O’Neal. No, now we’re watching the tallest guys on the floor shooting from its deepest spots.

Philly’s rise from doormat to tough out was anticipated if the 76ers could keep their young stars on the floor. And so far, both Joel Embiid and rookie Ben Simmons have been healthy, even as Philly continues to keep Embiid on a pitch count (he has yet to play more than 32 minutes in a game this season). That the Sixers have been so competitive without top overall pick Markelle Fultz is even more encouraging.

But the Knicks came out of nowhere. There were no expectations in New York, after Phil Jackson was fired and Carmelo Anthony was traded just before the start of training camp. The only (unstated) goal was to be as bad as possible to get cheap jerseys for sale as high a pick as possible in the 2018 Draft.

Yet New York has not only hung in there behind Kristaps Porzingis, who’s put up historic numbers for the franchise in the first weeks of the season, but the Knicks have been entertaining most nights and competitive after a terrible first week of the regular season. Since starting out 0-3, they’re 7-2.

The Pistons, though, are the league’s biggest surprise, a game and a half behind Boston for first in the east after completing a five-game homestand sweep with Sunday’s win at Little Caesars Arena against the Miami Heat. And of all the East surprises, the Pistons look most poised to be able to keep NBA Christmas jerseys going all season.

“First and foremost, you out a ballhawking defender in front of all that length and defensively, it could be scary. You saw what they did to Detroit (Wednesday night). That rim protection with all that length, they can sit back and cut off all angles to the basket with the ball pressure Bledsoe provides. The real test, though, is going to be how he plays in some of those marquee matchup against the other elite point guards. We know he can put up numbers on a bad team. He did that with no problem in Phoenix. And I realize that’s not an ideal situation for a guy at this stage of his career, so I’m not passing judgment on how he exited that situation. But what’s he going to do with the spotlight on him in some of those bigger matchups, in the playoffs? That’s the lingering question for me. Will he raise his game and the games of his teammates with his play and NBA Christmas jerseys?”

Mega-trade of Kyrie Irving, Isaiah Thomas doesn’t change much in East

Mega-trade of Kyrie Irving, Isaiah Thomas doesn’t change much in East

The first few seconds of your first earthquake are disconcerting. You don’t know what’s happening. The undulation, the noise, the inability to focus — it’s all disconcerting. But once you’ve been in a few, you know the feeling. You don’t relax, but you don’t panic, either.

Such is another week in the dramatic life of LeBron James. Another ‘quake? Big deal. It’s like he lives in a village called Frackingtown.

Kyrie Irving’s gone? Isaiah Thomas’ hip is jacked up worse than the Cavs thought? …

Kevin Love’s shoulder? Irving’s knee? Dwyane Wade’s knee? For that matter, Larry Hughes’ foot?

Guys go down next to James cheap NBA jerseys from China year after year, yet very little has stopped the party since 2007 — and not at all since 2010. And while a whole lot of people got their knickers twisted when Cleveland temporarily braked the deal, the end result was as good as anyone in Northern Ohio could expect, given the complete lack of leverage the Cavaliers had once Irving’s trade demands and unhappiness became public. (No, Koby Altman’s future as a GM isn’t ruined; everyone around the league knows the straight jacket every Cleveland exec is in, with Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert driving the bus. Hey, he paid for the bus; he can drive it if he wants sports jerseys cheap. Altman did a hell of a job getting what he got.)

Yet rarely have the two best teams in a conference made a trade with cheap jerseys wholesale one another the summer after, jangling up all the pieces from their five-game Eastern Conference finals series just a few months ago.

Thomas may miss the start of training camp. He says he’ll be fine eventually, but can’t say for sure he’ll be on the court at the end of the month. But there is no doubt in the James camp that whether Thomas is ready for cheap custom NBA jerseys training camp or not, or the start of the regular season or not, James will still be on the last East team standing in June 2018.

But that doesn’t mean this whole rigmarole with Irving sits well in JamesWorld. You don’t chase Michael Jordan’s ghost with fresh new faces; you need grunts like the guy who went all over France looking for Private Ryan. Irving had earned his stripes and James was expecting a grand pursuit of Paul George or Jimmy Butler this summer to close the gap with the Golden State Warriors, not losing one of his best teammates and having to scramble.

Playmakers like Jokic and Millsap cannot rise up from the second round without showing respect for the game plan. Without the pedigrees of explosive athleticism or a high Draft number, they’ve had to win over coaches and teammates along the way. Millsap’s reputation is renowned. Jokic’s is just now forming.

“The great thing about Nikola is his unbelievable work ethic,” Connelly said. “Certainly, his game is not based on athleticism. It’s hard to believe how good he is when you look at him. We had a game in New York cheap Nike NBA authentic jerseys this year, we played really well, and I’m sitting there with a couple of our guys. They said, ‘Do you believe that guy just had 40 points?’ I can’t. So he’s kind of a relatable superstar.”

The Nuggets hope to see improvements in Jokic’s shooting (32.4 percent from the 3-point line last year) and in his defensive leadership. Both areas figure to be enhanced by the presence of Millsap.

A big-money acquisition so often changes the personality of a franchise, and not always for the better. In Denver, where the identity is embodied by a 22-year-old pass-first center, Millsap’s value will be judged very much on his ability to bring out the best NBA jerseys in Jokic.

“It’s hard to guard a moving ball,” Connelly said. “We can’t play like other teams because the roster is a little atypical. I need to see the other guys around Nikola build into it. We’re not going to catch and hold, catch and watch. The quicker the ball customized NBA jerseys cheap moves, the quicker the decisions are, the more successful we’ve tended to be.”

In a league that is falling in love with ball movement, the Nuggets are emerging as unlikely trend-setters.
