The 2017 NBA off-season is arguably one of the most interesting in league history.

In no particular order, we've seen:

  • Chris Paul traded to the Rockets to join The Beard;
  • Jimmy Butler reunited with Coach Thibs in Minnesota;
  • PG13 sold for cheap by the Pacers to pair with Brodie; and
  • Gordon Hayward decided to take his talents to Shamrock-land.

Besides these deals, we're still waiting on potential buy-out candidates in dudes like Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade. They'll no doubt happen, too.

With the possible exception of Hayward, all this jostling is an effort by players to join forces into super-teams, à la the Golden State Warriors.

What does this portend for the league's landscape? We don't know; we're still working on portend. So click over to The Daily Player to get a more informed opinion.

Meanwhile, if you're more inclined toward the dude who drinks and knows things, Fanorama is your click of choice for nifty cool stuff like this liquor holster with shot glass holders:

To say you'll be the focal point of the party is an understatement.

And for only $49.99, yet!

Trust us, this will be your anti-portend! (We finally looked it up.) You need that. Really. You do.

So flex that itchy clicker finger and do us both a favor. We'll both be glad you did.
