Good morning, NBA fans!
I regret to say that last week I was swamped at work and was quite negligent when it came to providing you with your Daily Links. If only my job would just go away and let me write! Better yet, if all my bills could just disappear, I really wouldn’t need that pesky job any more . . . .
At any rate, I’m back in the groove, so let’s get to them: the links!
