Hardwood Paroxysm at Las Vegas Summer League: Day 1

I took this

By Jordan White: We woke up expecting a slow news day. Maybe a smaller free agent signing, or at least agreement, but nothing major. How foolish we were. Those expectations were quickly shot to hell around 9:30 when the LeBrocalypse came to its stunning (though, really, not all that stunning, right?) conclusion. After writing the necessary articles and tweeting the necessary tweets, Andrew and I packed up and headed to UNLV, our home for the next 11 days. I picked up my credentials and walked into the media room to find basically all of Paroxysm congregating around the couches. Unsurprisingly, the talk amongst us bloggers had nothing to do with Summer League and everything to do with LeBron — what the Cavaliers do next, how they acquire Kevin Love, and so forth. Congratulations, NBA, you’ve become the year-round sport you hoped to be. Already, next season is more exciting than last season. But first, we have to make it through Summer League. Shammgod help us all.
