Lichtenstein: Prokhorov Has Gone All In, And The Expectations Have Risen

Prokhorov isn’t putting up all this money just to make the playoffs — he wants a championship, or at least a serious run at it. Kidd, with help from his staff, will have to sort out all these new parts to find the right formula in a hurry.

Schmeelk: It’s Time For Gregg Popovich And The Spurs To Adjust

The Heat changed things up, and now it is time for Gregg Popovich to adjust. Is there anyone else you would want in that film room and on the practice floor figuring out how to counter those moves more than Popovich?
