Basketball season is nearly upon us, and the NBA preseason gives us a sign that it’s about to begin. Preseason games started Oct. 1, and will carry through Oct. 21. A lot of former Cats will be under the spotlight this coming season. How will Rajon Rondo fare in a new city with Dwyane Wade alongside him? Can Anthony Davis avoid the injury bug and get back to playing like one of the three best players in the world? Will DeMarcus Cousins get along with new coaches in Sacramento? Can Devin Booker back up his great rookie season with an even better second year (same goes for ROY Karl-Anthony Towns)? We’ll get a sneak peek at what the answer to these questions will be this preseason, as we watch the action unfold.
