After a weekend that went by far too quickly, Monday shows up like a slap in the face, taking you back to the real world, where you have work to do and school to go to. And, so, Monday’s are usually the worst and people hate them because it is the furthest away you are from the weekend and not having to work or go to school again for a few days. But this Monday is a day to rejoice, for it begins the last week without NBA regular season games. And to help you through this Monday, we’re here as always with some words to read. So check out today’s suggested basketball readings from across the web.
2013-2014 Hardwood Paroxysm Season Preview: By HP Staff
This is the only suggested reading for today, because if you’re going to read something about the NBA today, there really isn’t anything else you should be reading. That’s how good this thing is. The annual project put together by they guys over there is fantastic. The 2013-2014 version of the Hardwood Paroxysm Season Preview was released at midnight last night, and it’s well worth your time even if it is 2345984 pages long (just kidding it’s only 221). It’s filled with analysis, essays, and even some awesome art. If you’re somehow unfamiliar with Hardwood Paroxysm, this is a great way to get introduced to them. (It does cost 99 cents, but trust me, it’s completely worth it.)
