What better way to start your weekend then by reading about the NBA. We’ve got a lot of fresh content here at StS and we’re of course sharing some of the best work from across the web. Here are today’s suggested basketball readings from across the web.
The Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers used to be fierce rivals back in the day. (Just ask Larry Bird and Dr. J.) In the current era, the teams don’t have the same type of rivalry. But, Andrew Lynch of Hardwood Paroxysm tells us that there may be a new type of rivalry heating up between them – an off-court version.
After winning their second straight title, the Miami Heat are once again heading into the season as favorites to win it all. In order to prepare for a three-peat (and fourth straight trip to the finals), the team is heading to the Bahamas for training camp. Over at SB Nation’s Hot Hot Hoops, Matt Pineda takes a look at the roster – looking specifically at how the team will fill out the remaining spots.
The injury bug has certainly been the narrative for the Minnesota Timberwolves recently. Over at Timber Pups, Zachary Bennett (a new member of the StS staff) wrote about ending that narrative and what we can expect to see from the T’Wolves heading into a new year.
