October 25th, 2012 at 6:20 AM
  Hello there! For the second consecutive year, I am putting entirely too much effort into previewing the NBA season.

Chicago Bulls Stuck in Neutral as Other Contenders Improve
July 9th, 2012 at 3:17 PM
The Miami Heat have added Ray Allen for cheap. The Los Angeles Lakers have landed Steve Nash in exchange for draft picks. The Brooklyn Nets have acquired Joe Johnson and are possibly on the verge of getting Dwight Howard for very little. Countless other teams have made moves to bolster their...

The 2012 NBA Draft has arrived, which means we're less than 24 hours away from the death of fake Twitter accounts that spew false rumors/deals that some people, even respected journalists/bloggers, somehow buy into.
