Smell that? It's the scent of NBA general manager surveys. They're in the air, and they're better than love.
As it has done for the past 11 years, NBA.com polled all 30 of the league's general managers. I must say, lucky No. 12 was a doozy.
General managers were asked to answer an array of forward-thinking questions related to teams, players, coaches and so much more. There still aren't any questions on tanking, which needs to change, but overall, these surveys are a breath of fresh air.
Which team will win the championship in 2014? Who's the best at their position? Which offseason moves were the most productive?
Perspectives from the suits above are invaluable. They're paid to build the rosters, to shape the answers of these questions every year. What they have to say, or in this case write, is worth far more than your average bar-stool conversation.
