Morning, Hardwood Houdini fans!
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.
