True love waits
In keeping with the New Redemption theme of this upcoming season. I'm sure all of you remember
(any chance McCants takes to the court in AF1's?)
And I would like to offically cast a vote for "fuck training camp." The various roster upheavals aren't news to me, position battles barely exist in the NBA (they get their minutes regardless of who starts), and all that shit we spent the off-season breathlessly speculating about—chemistry issues, commitment, intangibles awakened, coaching philosophies—isn't going to get resolved in the least until the real thing gets underway. About all that happens in training camp/the pre-season are injures. And the Comissioner's office announcing the suspensions for summer gun charges, which historically, is always a good sign for a star on the rise.
Then again, the Rockets' new starting five might cause a natural disaster well before the season opener.
