NBA Predix

Posted By on Tue, Oct 27, 2009 at 10:55 AM

The NBA season tips off tonight. My divisional preview series got sidetracked by other work, but I hope to finish those up — in somewhat abbreviated fashion — by the the end of the week. I also have a few other Griz-specific season preview items I hope to post here before the team's opener tomorrow night, one of which — on O.J. Mayo — should be up this afternoon.
