I wish I could say the NBA's summer of 2014 is almost over, but, unfortunately, I can't. We still have to sit through the entire month of September before training camps open, and we won't have any meaningful regular-season games to watch until Oct. 28, when the San Antonio Spurs tip off their title defense against the Dallas Mavericks.
Technically speaking, then, it might be too early to hand out offseason superlatives, what with so many days left to count down until the start of the 2014-15 regular season. But, for all intents and purposes, the most important portion of the interregnum has passed, especially now that Kevin Love and Andrew Wiggins have traded places and the rest of the league's rosters are just about set.
With that in mind, let's look at some of the "bests," "worsts," "mosts" and "leasts" of the summer, with the winners in each category chosen based on everything that's happened in the basketball world since the Finals came to a close in late June.
