By the end of this week FIBA Americas starts, then on Sept. 7 we get EuroBasket — actual competitive basketball with something (pride at least) on the line.
For now, we have pro-ams, and the best one going is probably in Washington DC where Victor Oladipo and Kevin Durant showed up to put on a little show. Oladipo has range but needs to work on his flashy dunks. Durant is Durant, he will score at will.
