Even though New Year's resolutions are typically reserved for those of us who need to drop a few pounds or increase productivity, that doesn't mean some resolutions can't apply to your favorite NBA teams as they head into 2013.
Sure, January 1 is an arbitrary date to suddenly commit to personal reform. And yeah, most resolutions tend to fizzle out after a few days. Still, it's worth it to at least pretend things can suddenly change when the calendar flips.
After all, wouldn't it be nice if Josh Smith and the Atlanta Hawks exercised a little more self-control in the shot-selection department next year?
And couldn't the Sacramento Kings benefit from some housecleaning?
Some of our advice involves minor tweaks designed to help improve a team's mood in the future, while others are pretty harsh calls for change. We're not shying away from tough love around here.
Nobody's perfect, and neither is any NBA club, so each of the teams on our list would do well to heed our suggested resolution in 2013.
