Welcome to this season’s first game thread! Like normal, all people are welcome, except for Jah stans (kidding!) (kind of). Try to limit the language, and enjoy whatever’s in store for tonight.

Out due to injury/rest for the Sixers are Joel Embiid (tennis), Dario Saric (rest), Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) and Amir Johnson (ankle). Mike Conley and Marc Gasol, among others, are sitting out for Memphis. The game doesn’t impact the record, so it makes sense.

That being said, with the first action against another NBA team coming up for Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz, I haven’t been this excited for a meaningless game in a long time, if ever.

If you came for the opposing side, boo. Also, here’s a site for you, Grizzly Bear Blues.
