The NBA is just days away from opening tip-off, and holy expletive I am excited!  I’m tempted to just hibernate the next few days, but I’m pretty sure my job would not consider “resting up for opening night in the NBA” a valid reason to burn three sick days.

They’re selfish that way.

Since I cannot do that, all I can do is read, read read in order to build up my anticipation.  With that, I share with you today’s assortment of links.

Got some free time on your hands?  Like clicking your mouse . . . a lot?!?  Then check out this ranking of the NBA’s top 100 players.  [Bleacher Report]  I would have been happy with just the top 50, myself.

Time to gaze into the crystal ball and see who is going to win it all this season!  [Sports Illustrated]

And here’s your dose of Boston Celtics literature today: why the Celtics’ quest for number 18 will take a back seat to “the process” this season.  [Masslive.com]

Be good to yourselves, readers!
