If you’re anything like me, the summer can be the most frustrating time as a basketball fan. We have free agency, which is really only exciting for a couple days until the big names go off the board. Then we have a week and a half of summer league that gets us a look at all the new guys. Then what? Holding out hope for a few glimpses of someone’s offseason training routine or Scottie playing pro-am games doesn’t necessarily scratch the itch of craving basketball in the summer.
Obviously, if you’re not watching the WNBA that is the first place to start, but while we still wait for our own franchise in Toronto, there’s another way to take in basketball during the fairer weather months that is a lot closer to home.
