Lindy's Pro Basketball 2018-19 Is Available Now

One of the first welcome signs that the NBA season will begin soon is the appearance of Lindy's Pro Basketball at your favorite bookstore or newsstand. The 2018-19 edition includes eight feature stories and 30 team previews. The feature stories are "Scopin' the NBA" (Mike Ashley looks at some of the major off-season stories, not surprisingly headlined by LeBron James' move from the Cavaliers to the Lakers), "Generation Next" (Lindy's editor Roland Lazenby shares insights gathered from top talent evaluators regarding young stars Jayson Tatum, Donovan Mitchell, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid), "Durant and the Drama Factory" (Michael Bradley examines how the NBA has become like AAU basketball with players "jumping ship and changing teams, almost on a whim"), "The Hoosier " (Mark Murphy profiles Brad Stevens and his Indiana roots), "NBA Report Card" (Lazenby rates each team's off-season moves), "A Look Ahead" (Jeremy Treatman scouts the 2019 NBA Draft), "NBA Fantasy Guide" (Ashley provides advice for fantasy basketball enthusiasts) and "A Look Back" (Lazenby describes the final championship of the Bill Russell's magnificent Boston Celtics career).

I wrote the team previews and sidebars for the Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder. My sidebars discuss Mark Cuban and Russell Westbrook respectively.

It is always a source of pride to write for Lindy's and then to see the finished product just a couple months later. The death of print media has been proclaimed for quite some time but Lindy's is alive and well. This is the 11th edition for which I contributed at least one article or team preview and I hope to be on the roster next year as well.
