The 2018-2019 NBA season starts tomorrow night, and I. Can. Not. Wait.

LeBron James going out west to lead the Lakers.  Kawhi Leonard getting traded out east to the Raptors.  Boogie Cousins signing with the already loaded Warriors.  The “Process” manifesting itself in Philadelphia.

This is going to be the most exciting NBA season in recent memory.  So without further ado…
