- The Nets’ home opener at the Barclays Center against the Knicks has been postponed because of the devastation in New York due to Hurricane Sandy. With no mass transit system and millions without power, this was probably a wise decision. (via NY Times)
- James Harden has agreed to a 5-year, $80 million max contract extension with the Houston Rockets. If the man wanted to get paid, it looks like he made the right move not signing OKC’s 4-year, $52 million offer. (via Yahoo!)
- Ty Lawson yesterday, Stephen Curry today. The Golden State Warriors have agreed to sign Curry to a 4-year, $44 million extension. (via ESPN)
Lakers fans — It’s only one game, you’re still a contender.
Thunder fans — You were the favorite to win the West regardless, calm down.
Heat fans — You’re not a lock for the repeat just yet. Relax.
Knicks fans — We have nothing to do with this, but I thought I’d just tell you that we’re still slightly above average, and not a contender.
I can already see Skip Bayless’ wrinkly forehead scrunching together, yelling at the caricature of a caricature of a black man known as Stephen A. Smith that the Lakers are overrated and have no shot at winning a championship. Now, maybe that won’t be his opinion, but regardless, prepare yourself for a day, a week, or maybe even a month of nonsensical ESPN storylines about the Lakers’ so-called problems preventing them from winning a championship.
