After an exciting 13 game schedule last night, we’re right back into it today, with another 8 games on tap. This first weekend of regular season games is shaping up quite nicely. Before you check out some of tonight’s action, enjoy your Saturday morning and afternoon by doing a little reading. Back with some suggestions for what to read, here are today’s suggested basketball readings from across the web.
Coming into his rookie season, no one really knew what to make of Michael Carter-Williams. He has all the physical tools and potential to be a good player, but would he ever be able to put it together people wondered? (And really, it’s too early to make any type of judgements.) But on opening night, he looked like a favorite for rookie of the year, leading the Sixers to a thrilling victory over the Miami Heat. Check out what Hardwood Paroxysm’s Seerat Sohi had to say after watching MCW’s debut.

But through two games, World Peace is trying to do more than just playing good defense and hitting open shots. As Kevin Metz, of FanSided’s Buckets Over Broadway writes, World Peace has to understand his role, if he wants the Knicks to win.
