All the way back in June, new Detroit Pistons president and head coach Stan Van Gundy made it clear he was thoroughly preoccupied by restricted free agent Greg Monroe's contract situation. "Even with free agency and the draft and everything else," Van Gundy told reporters (h/t NBA.com's Keith Langlois). "I’ve spent well over half my time on that whole situation."

USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo was just answering a question, but in the process he may have given this team both guidance and a slick slogan. Don't fear the beard—follow it.

The Chicago Bulls did an exceptional job filling out their roster this past summer, but there are still a couple of flaws in its construction—if we nitpick. The Bulls bolstered the frontcourt, adding two solid bigs in Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic. Trading with the Denver Nuggets for Doug McDermott was also a big addition for their perimeter shooting, an area of weakness over the past couple of years.
