Random Wax: 2015-2016 Donruss Basketball

The NBA's silly season starts tonight so now is a good time to look at a pack of 2015-2016 Donruss Basketball.  I opened up a retail box of these in the past and I do like the design and photos.  That break can be seen here.  As excited I am for the NBA's free agency to start tonight this pack, outside of this cool Kemba Walker card and a few stars, it was somewhat boring.  
   Maybe I should be more excited about Paul Pierce, Kevin Love, and Chris Paul.  All great players for sure and maybe I'm just too excited about possibly getting Curry, Lillard, Durant, Leonard, AD or James.
  The young players really didn't pan out over the last 4 years.  Rakeem Christmas does have one of the coolest names of all-time.
And the rest of the highlights...  This won't deter me from being exciting about seeing a historically great free agent class make their moves over the next week.  I'm all about players staying with their teams for an entire career but that isn't the world we live in.  Many of the moves are pretty much a done deal or somewhat expected but I'm hoping for a few surprises that'll make us go wow.

  1. I like this set a lot, it's not ground-breaking or anything but it's a solid low-end set with great action photos. I was hoping you'd pull a rookie I need but I have the Hezonja :/

    Can't wait to see who signs where. It's going to be crazy.

    1. Yes it will be crazy. It seems hard to believe we'll ever see a free agent class like this again. Can't wait.

  2. So weird seeing Pierce not in a Celtics jersey. Was hoping he'd be a lifelong Celtic.

    1. Can't argue. Would love nothing more than to see more players stay with the same team for their entire career.
