    Adam Silver is by far the best commissioner in sports right now. I love how he listens to the players!

    So, it looks like the Blazers have 11 single game road trips of more than 2000 miles.

    Probably one of their alternates (or whatever fancy marketing word Nike has attached to it).

    I've found it: the most Lakers-fan-ish tweet possible:

    If your a lakers fan you just assume every good FA ever wants to get on their knees and worship the yellow and purple jersey/trophies.

    Yup. Looks like it was released on the 11th last year so it should be soon.

    they said teams would get an opportunity to review the schedule to ask for changes for the league to review. I believe the teams received the rough draght end of last week

    The teams have the schedule. They are making requests for date changes and waiting to hear back from the league. Teams always have the right to petition for a few changes to the schedule before the release. Assuming Friday, total guess.

    Lakers fans get on their knees for golden showers. They must think everyone does.

    It's kind of surprising that they can ask for revisions with arenas probably having shows booked throughout the year and probably super close to the dates already set for the games.

    Do arenas have 2 days set up for each game? Man, that must be tricky running arena scheduling.
