I expect a really good Wizards team this year with 3 of the 5 starters who took them to playoffs back..and a great coach. It messed up they canned their coach with 3 starters injured the whole year and the sixth man injured the whole year.

So, is Oberto on the Wizards or the Pistons? You have him listed on both.

If you really don't know: Use the hyperlinks in the post, you'll get your answer. For example, click on his picture and you'll see which team NBA.com has him on.

If you are simply trying to alert me: Thank you. I saw where he agreed to play for the Wizards, but I didn't see an actual announcement with a confirmed contract signing. I have now updated the thread, based on each teams' roster updates.

This will be a great team............until Arenas and Jamison tear their ACL's during the first quarter.

Just the alert, SixthMan, just the alert. Somebody new to the boards might get confused, and we don't want them thinking the best pre-game information provider on the NBA boards was not paying attention. I know you created the Pistons game thread last week, and you do wait for the League to change their rosters before you do the updates in the game threads.

Grizzlies Announce Preseason Schedule

Now we know the last 3 games that weren't previously announced by other teams (Dallas, Detroit, and Charlotte)...

What if Thabeet's presence causes us to be above .0500 in the preseason?

It will have as much impact as being 1.000 in SL. None. And by none I mean both SL and preseason aren't that relevant from record standpoint.

Imo, to a certain degree, you are right. I do think, that because Thabeet will be going up against better players than he faced in the SL, we will get a better gage on his NBA potential. I do agree the NBA pre-season games don't predict how your team will fare record-wise once the regular season starts.

Perhaps, that's all you're referring. If so, pardon my not recognizing it.

Yep. That's all. Awhile back I had already given Thabeet a pass on this season, so even if (or when) his presence has no effect I won't be all over him this season about it.

I like the matchup. Neither team is who they were last year, so it should be entertaining.

I have not been keeping up the off season talks, trades, etc, however, I am catching up now. Thanks for the links

They should. They never let the pre season go uncovered in the past. I'm just assuming things though.
