Gordon Hayward isn’t “great” at any one particular skill. But he’s so good at just about everything, that it doesn’t matter anyway.
Think of all the things Marc Gasol is great at, then toss in him shooting 39 percent from three-point range last season. What are we dealing with here?

The Lakers aren’t there yet, but they’re looking promising again. The Lonzo Ball hype is real. But which other teams will improve the most this season?

Bradley Beal was finally healthy last season. Bradley Beal finally started taking smarter shots. And guess what? The results were very telling.
