I will never be ready for this part of the NBA season. Now that the new CBA deal has been agreed on, the NBA free agency is set to open November 20th.

It’s a big year for superstars in Houston like James Harden and Russell Westbrook who weren’t able reach success. While they aren’t in contract years, they may still ask for a new home. It’s also a rumor floating around that Kevin Love could be joining the Golden State Warriors in a 3-team trade involving Draymond Green.

Let’s look at a list from Sporting News of key names entering Free Agency:

Carmelo Anthony (unrestricted), Mike Conley (player option), DeMarcus Cousins (unrestricted), Andre Drummond (player option), Evan Fournier (player option), Marc Gasol (unrestricted), Joe Harris (unrestricted), Dwight Howard (unrestricted), Serge Ibaka (unrestricted), Paul Millsap (unrestricted) and Marcus Morris (unrestricted).

My Question: Are You Ready?

I think my exhaustion in the NBA musical chairs is keeping up with some of the players that I love. I remember falling in love with the Bulls because of the caliber of player that Michael Jordan was. Or, how I will also love watching the Lakers play because one of my heroes, Kobe Bryant, once played in those colors.

In today’s game, once you begin to love a player and want to love his team, he’s gone. Do you ever feel that exhaustion?
