New week? New roundup of my NBA latest
Suns, Heat, Clippers, Trail Blazers, 76ers, Lakers, Mavericks, Rockets, Nuggets, Pacers and more ... all covered in this edition of the Monday Musings
The NBA's new collective bargaining agreement and the various team-building restrictions it contains were supposed to steer the league's 30 franchises away from the Superteam concept.
Sure doesn't seem to be working out that way so far.
The Phoenix Suns were widely described as the NBA's Outlier Franchise right before the June 22 draft when the Suns capitalized on Miami's reluctance to go all-in on a Bradley Beal trade by offering a Chris Paul-centric package to the Wizards so they could take on Beal and the nearly $208 million left on his contract over the next four seasons.
Look at what's happened since, though.
Are you frustrated with the Twitter experience?
Do what many NBA fans did Saturday after it was announced that the platform had imposed view limits on tweets.
Relocate to The Stein Line's Substack Chat!
It's a great place to interact with fellow offseason-obsessed readers who want to inhale every latest morsel of transaction mayhem in #thisleague and who banded together during this latest Twitter storm to share the latest news updates that the limits on tweet views might have otherwise caused them to miss.
And at least once a week we get together for paid-subscribers-only sessions with rapid-fire Q&As on an array of league topics. Check out the impromptu session we did Sunday afternoon.
