It's only been about a month since we saw the USA Olympic men's basketball team win gold in London, but believe it or not, the 2012-13 NBA season is right around the corner.
NBA teams will be kicking off training camp starting October 2, and suffice it to say, the league looks just a little different than how we last left it in June.
