EVERYBODY GET UP, IT’S TIME TO SLAM NOW
It’s time, y’all.

Well, this is incredible.
There’s plenty of preseason content up on this here website, and you can catch all of it here. If you haven’t already, be sure to give all of our beat writers a follow on Twitter too, as they’ll be hard at work covering these teams. Here’s Kortay. Here’s Parker. Here’s Lauren.
Also, buy tickets! Go watch live sports! It’s so damn fun! (Editor’s note: I’ll be at BOTH games this week, NBD)
