NBA preseason primer: MVP candidates | NBC Sports Chicago
NBA calendar: July -- Moratorium Period (ends at noon open for all teams participating in preseason NBA Global Games. CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Gordon Hayward finally returned to the court, and Kyrie Irving got to play at No - Basketball - Winnipeg Free Press. There will be an NBA game in Seattle this fall, as the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors are set to meet in a KeyArena preseason game on its $ million renovation, slated to begin at the end of this year.
He has the ability to be used at Center on Draft Kings so I think he is a must on that format in cash games.
However, in their last game he bounced back to respectable numbers. Draft Kings is basically begging us to use him at his salary while on Fanduel he is a little harder to swallow. I like the pace in this game where Gasol can get out on the perimeter and above the key to knock down some easy looks.
He has flashed upside at times and this could be one of those times. Use caution though as this is not exactly my favorite spot to go tonight.
No Thad young so he should draw the start tonight. After that time we will be offering memberships. What can you expect from that?

Hayward returns, and the NBA preseason schedule begins
And despite all that, this year is earmarked as the Kevin Durant revenge tour. Certain years, you can tell before the season begins that a player is on a mission. InMichael Jordan was sick and tired of having the Detroit Pistons sic themselves on him physically and tiring him mentally. He already owns the MVP and is nearing free agency, but is coming off an injury-filled season that caused him to miss 55 games.
He and Russell Westbrook will learn a new system with a new coach, and the Thunder could very well be the favorites to make it to June. Count me in for a season of Durant reminding everyone who the league's most dominant scorer is.
One of my favorite moments from his MVP season was the back-and-forth duel between Durant and LeBron in January; it almost felt like a passing of the torch Durant had finished second three times to James for the MVP that season. Durant was just a young pup in when the two met in the Finals, and I'd love to see another showdown with a matured Westbrook, a hungry Durant and a healthy Cavaliers team.
Now, that being said, the game's best player still resides in your favorite town, Cleveland. There's something to be said for James having a "down year" averaging I've watched his Game 3 performance against the Warriors a half dozen times this offseason, and come away more impressed each time.

All things considered, it was the best Finals performance I've ever witnessed, and that series as a whole gives me the feeling that James is going to be on that same mission to remind people who's top dog this year. I remember reading Brian Windhorst, who wrote that James was secretly annoyed at the lack of attention he was getting for MVP last season.
Some of that was justified. All of it will be used as fuel for the upcoming season, much like Durant. Irving played for the first time since March 11, when his season ended with a knee issue.
He finished with nine points. A look at Friday's games: Jeremy Lamb scored 15 for Charlotte, which finished with seven players in double figures. Jaylen Brown scored 14 points and Marcus Morris had 12 for the Celtics. The game was played before a crowd of more than 18, inside the Dean E. Smith Center at North Carolina, a place that carries obvious significance to many members of the Hornets organization — such as owner Michael Jordan, general manager Mitch Kupchak and Hornets wing Marvin Williams.
Boston led by as many as 20 points in the first half. The Celtics used 15 players and 13 of them attempted at least one 3-pointer, and Brad Stevens' club finished 9 of 47 from beyond the arc.
