Lindy's Pro Basketball 2017-18 is on Sale Now

You know that pro basketball season is just around the corner when the welcome sight of Lindy's Pro Basketball greets you at your favorite bookstore or newsstand! The 2017-18 edition includes eight feature stories plus 30 team previews. The feature stories are "Scoping the NBA" (Mike Ashley looks at some of the major off-season stories), "Success, Always His Choice" (Michael Bradley examines Kevin Durant's path to an NBA title), "Together Again" (Mark Murphy discusses the reunion of Brad Stevens and Gordon Hayward in Boston), "Malcolm in the Middle" (Lindy's editor Roland Lazenby profiles 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon), "NBA Report Card" (Lazenby rates each team's off-season moves), "A Look Ahead" (Jeremy Treatman scouts the 2018 NBA Draft), "Fantasy Basketball" (Ashley provides a handy guide for fantasy basketball enthusiasts) and "A Look Back" (Lazenby recalls Bill Russell's key dual role for Boston's 1968 NBA championship team).

This season, I wrote the team previews and sidebars for the Charlotte Hornets, Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. My sidebars discuss Dwight Howard, Dion Waiters and Manu Ginobili respectively. Last year I only wrote one team preview (L.A. Lakers) as that summer I had just taken (and passed!) the Ohio Bar Exam but this year I was fortunate enough to have three assignments. It is always a joy to write for Lindy's and then to see the finished product just a couple months later.

Print media has taken a backseat to the internet but it is great that Lindy's is surviving and thriving in this new era. This is the 10th edition for which I have written at least one preview and I hope to continue to contribute for a long time to come.

For those of us who don't make it to the newstand as regularly, do you know if there's an online buying option? I'd love to read your SA and Miami previews, especially (obligatory mention of EuroBasket MVP Goran Dragic, naturally), but the Lindy's site seems to only have individual team-focused magazines (at 9 bucks a pop)... would your stuff be in there as well, or is that a different product?

The Lindy's Pro Basketball preview mags on sale at the Lindy's site each contain all team previews and feature articles; the only difference is that there are a variety of cover options available.
