After an NBA season, the playoffs, the Finals, the draft, free agency and a trip to Las Vegas for Samsung Summer League, we’re taking a break for a bit. You’ll see us around the Hall of Fame inductions, then we’ll be back for the medal round of the FIBA World Cup, but until then The Starters will be enjoying the rest of their summer and recharging those metaphorical batteries you always hear about.

 

Stay tuned. Next season is less than a hundred days away.
