The NBA season will be fast, furious and frenetic. (Beautiful? Maybe not so much.) And as it opens, the spotlight shines on LeBron James (doesn't it always?) and the Heat. Again.
The NBA will finally open, two months later than usual, to which we say: Season's Greetings! Christmas Day is the right time to tip off the season.
They aren't just a novelty anymore. The international players being drafted into the NBA are changing the league and raising questions about the state of our home-grown college basketball.
