As the NBA world anxiously awaits the start of the 2014-2015 season, there is plenty to discuss in the world of professional basketball. From LeBron’s move to Cleveland, the strengthening of the East as a whole, and the San Antonio Spurs recent hire of Becky Hammon (oh, and their strive to repeat as NBA champions), hoops has become a year-long topic, and that is fantastic news for the league itself.

Without delay, let’s unveil the list.
