Living the dream

With the NBA season set to kick off in a couple of short weeks, I am providing my thoughts on the newest marvel that is the “Super team.” When I was watching basketball growing up, it was simply fantastic. Many of the teams were similar in skill, which lead to very tightly contested games and
