The NBA offseason is rapidly coming to a close, and with that means is the opening of training camps, preseason games getting underway and eventually, blissfully, basketball making its way back into our lives.
Now, since there is still a month of down time before actual, meaningful games start, I've got plenty of time left to fool around and write my heart's content about things meaningless to the sport itself, which seems to be my forte.
One of my favorite things to do, both because I'm a basketball nerd and a music nerd, is fit a perfect theme song in for teams or just sum a team's work up with a singular song. I feel it helps reflect what a team has been able to do and it allows me to branch out and listen to music that I've yet to listen to.
The most recent installment of me putting basketball to a soundtrack comes in the form of theme songs for each rookie moving forward. Rather than letting them go into the season in silence, I've found a song to preface the situation they'll find themselves in and get them ready for the league in general.
