Cavs looked good but lets not too overly excited here, just there first game back might be the adrenaline... would like to see a few more games before I make a judgement

The debacle of picking Fultz #1 in the draft has reached virtual reality proportions...

That whole thimg is still so weird. I don't know if it's his own doing or the 76ers doing. Nobody knows.

He shot awful percentages in Summer League and I feel like the team wanted to change his shot, and it's what lead to all this.

The "shoulder pain" seems more of a cover up...i think.

This Rising Stars game is becoming a shooting exhibition, this Bogdanovic kid can really shoot, reminds me a bit of Drazen Petrovic back in the day.

They fixed the All-Star game. New format works. That was fun. :)

This is the most entertaining NBA all-stars game since I don't even remembered. I hope they do this next year!

Those last 5 mins were pretty intense. Steph was completely blanketed in that last play.

Blown call on a video review!! In an all-star game!! I suspect the refs didn't have the camera angle available to them. Seacaucus guys got the night off. ;)

Team LeBron wuz robbed on that play, but karma is a bitch. It really was the best game in many years.

The slam dunk contest was average this year. Multiple borrowed dunks that were not pulled off as good as past competitors.

I enjoyed the Rising Stars and All Star game.. it was fun this year... Dunk Contest and 3pt was pretty bad.... Best Dunk Contest will always be the Toronto one in 2016... Gordon and Levine went crazy... and Gordon definitely has the best dunk in the competition ever.. followed by J-Rich and then probably Vince

Posting in here to see if there’s anyone who might be interested in a live NBA trivia app, think HQ meets Sportscenter and all about basketball. My friend and I have been working on the app for a couple months and we’re looking for some people to help us test it out! We have cash prizes also. It's only on iOS for now as that's what I have experience with haha. Trying to get android out there for sure.

Here's a clip of our most current version, we ran this a couple days ago with a prize of $150 if you got it all right, split between winners but no one won haha.

Here's our first version really laggy but we've managed to fix that: start around 2:37 https://youtu.be/tg1fBmZakTg?t=157

And our pre-allstar game:

This is just a passion project we've been working on and hope we can get some more testers outside of our friends!

If you're interested the sign up page is: https://sportsqtrivia.com/

Was Zaza Pachulia's FALL on Russell Westbrook REALLY A Dirty Play?

Did Nick Young's foot clip Zaza's leg? Yes
But he damn made sure to get most out of the opportunity, just like all his "accidents"
Could he break the fall or at least not aim for the knee? Probably, he's professional athlete, not clumsy like rest of us.
