Will James Harden be happy with the reconstructed Rockets roster? Is Doc Rivers’ leadership the reason for the Sixers’ early success? In Boston, Jayson Tatum has been outstanding and rookie Payton Pritchard has been a spark off the bench but Jaylen Brown’s improvement has been striking. In New York, the Knicks are off to a great start behind the great play of Julius Randle and the team has taken on the hard nosed personality of new coach Tom Thibodeau. And in Phoenix, Chris Paul’s organizational skills have helped young players like Deandre Ayton and Devin Booker accelerate their growth. All of this plus a preview of the first meeting between LaMelo and Lonzo Ball and one great “road trip” story from BJ.
