Fantasy Basketball: Music of the Traffic – Week 9

There are times in life when we don’t appreciate what we have until it’s taken away. This week, the NBA family lost one of the all-time greats.

For all the talk that last year couldn’t be replicated, that the team was different now and his role had to change, that we wouldn’t see anything like the craziness we witnessed in that record-setting season— well, I guess there was one guy not listening.

Change is inevitable, but some handle it better than others. Take Kevin Durant’s move to Golden State for example.
