Back in the day, reporters and journalist types used to go to NBA games or media day, talk to the players and write about them.
That still happens, but now the players are using media day to tell you what they’ve been up to in “their own words”, and I put that in quotes because having a ghost writer is the new speaking. NBA.com brings you the player blogs, pre-training camp edition.
