The 2012-13 NBA season may be young, but there are a number of storylines stirring when it comes to the league’s hottest rumors.
It’s no secret that the firing of Mike Brown and the potential return of Phil Jackson (according to Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears) has created the loudest buzz around the league. The Los Angeles Lakers are in the spotlight, and everybody wants to know what’s going to happen next.
That being said, buried under the drama in L.A. is plenty more to talk about. Rumors won’t truly begin flying until we get closer to the trade deadline, but early-season stories can cause a stir, and there's plenty to talk about as the season heats up.
