The World’s Quickest 2017-2018 NBA Preview

I must say with the bevy of off-season news, this should make for one of the most exciting NBA seasons in recent memory. The Kyrie Irving trade. Carmelo Anthony and Paul George to OKC. Chris Paul to Houston. Jimmy Butler to Minnesota. Color my ass pumped! Hell, it has to better than last season when…

Politics and Sports: Never an Ideal Mix
