    2017-18 NBA season

    The 2017-18 NBA season begins October 17 with the Cavaliers playing the Celtics at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. This thread is the place for basketball fans to post opinions and news about their favorite teams. I hope a lot of people participate. Otherwise, this thread ends up being my own personal blog instead of a discussion.

    The latest odds from the Vegas Insider website have the Golden State Warriors, with 5-to-8 odds, as the favorite to win the 2018 NBA Championship. The Cleveland Cavaliers rank second with 7-to-2 odds and the Boston Celtics rank third with 8-to1 odds. My favorite team is the Clippers. Their odds to win the Championship are 125 to one. Considering that the Clippers have never gotten past the second round of the playoffs, their odds may as well be zero to one.

    SiriusXM will broadcast every NBA game of the 2017-18 season, from opening day through the Finals. (Or should that be "Final"?) Games are carried on channels 212 through 217. Select games are also carried on SiriusXM NBA Radio, which provides full-time NBA news, talk, analysis and call-in programs. Among the hosts are several former players and coaches, including Rick Mahorn, Eddie Johnson and Greg Anthony.

    NBA Radio is Sirius channel 207 and XM channel 86.

    "Three strikes and you're out" is a rule of baseball. It now also applies to basketball.

    The Clippers, who have never gotten past the second round of the playoffs, are having another typical season: A good start followed by big losing streaks and several players injured. After winning their first four games, the Clippers are now 5-6. Austin Rivers, Patrick Beverley, Milos Teodosic and Danilo Gallinari are injured.

    Lonzo Ball, the Lakers' 20-year-old rookie, had been hailed as "the next Kobe Bryant" but he's off to a slow start. In his first 12 games, he's shot only 22% from three-point range and 29.8% overall.

    The Clippers lost again today. I like the Clippers but I don't really know why.

    The 76ers just beat the Clippers, 109-105. It's their sixth consecutive loss. The Celtics have won 12 in a row. And could LeBron James wind up with the Knicks? That is the rumor:

    Tonight the Cavaliers beat the Clippers in overtime. It's their seventh consecutive loss. Their longest losing streak was 20 games: four at the end of the 1993-94 season and 16 at the start of the 1994-95 season. The Clippers have also had two 19-game losing streaks and two 17-game losing streaks. Please, Clippers, try not to set a new record this season, okay?
