We spent all summer discussing the biggest NBA moves, but the more subtle maneuvers will still make a huge impact this season.
Blockbusters aren't everything. Even in this era of superstar dominance, it takes a total team effort to win a title, so the rotational shift and tweaks of strategy and chemistry are still essential. If talent were everything and the bench and cohesion afterthoughts, the 2012-13 Los Angeles Lakers would have been champions.
Those unheralded improvements don't get so much love when they happen, but they'll surely pay off when games start up again.
