Thanks NBA For Great Summer Of Free Agency!
It is the middle of July.
It is hot, it is humid, and it is usually dead when it comes to sports.
But thanks to the NBA, this summer seems to be flying by as we zoom towards the opening of NFL training camps in about 2 weeks.
Here in Charlotte, the focus has been on the free agent pursuit of Gordon Hayward and the misadventures of 1st round pick PJ Hairston.
While we continue to wait and see what happens with Hayward and hope that PJ will get his head screwed on straight, at least these stories have helped us to talk about something other than great summertime topics such as what is the best sports movie of all time, although there is still time in the summer for that one.
The focus everywhere else in the NBA has been on LeBron, Carmelo, and Bosh with the minute by minute updates on James bordering on the theatre of the absurd at times with reports of moving vans, enrollments of kids in private schools in Cleveland among others.
All this has helped us all get to this point of the summer and if, if we can survive next week which is widely believed to be the slowest week of the sports year, we can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
So again a big thanks to the NBA, you have come through when we needed you the most.
