Cliches are as big a part of training camp as integrating new players into the rotation or developing new offensive sets.
The use of cliches can be extremely frustrating for fans because so many press conferences are nothing more than one cliche after another.
If coaches and players were not allowed to answer with cliches, then press conferences and other interviews would be can't-miss television.
Unfortunately, that isn't the world we live in, so we will be forced to deal with the cliches in hopes of finding something noteworthy or remarkable.
As the preseason action starts to heat up and the cliches keep popping up, just remember that the regular season tips off on October 30th.
