While most of the Carolina fan base is entrenched with the football season, we can not forget that the National Basketball Association will soon be here. With that in mind, and with the fact that this season the NBA will have, barring injuries, sixteen former North Carolina basketball players hitting the hardwoods each night, I have decided to find blogs following the NBA squads...
