We’re another day closer (just 20 days now) to the start of the NBA season and we’re back as always with things to read to help you get ready for that day. Here are today’s suggested readings from across the web.
The past few seasons in Charlotte have been pretty dismal, to say the least. With the possible emergence of Kemba Walker and the signing of Al Jefferson over the summer, however, there is at least some hope for a brighter future. Over at ESPN True Hoop’s Hawks Hoop, Chris Barnewall previews the Bobcats upcoming season.
The Brooklyn Nets’ hiring future hall-of-famer Jason Kidd as the team’s head coach over the summer surprised a lot of people. Kidd had just retired earlier in the summer and obviously had no coaching experience. The team has high expectations after making a number of moves this offseason and spending otherworldly amounts of money. Over at FanSided’s From Russia With Dunk, Jonah Mars wonders about what will happen if Kidd can’t meet these lofty goals.
The Jazz fully committed to turning the team over to their youngsters this offseason. One of them is big man Enes Kanter, who is entering his third year in the league. Over at FanSided’s Purple and Blues, Tyson Newman writes that we should expect that the faith the Jazz put in Kanter will pay off.
