Tough matchup versus the defensive-minded ex-Bobcats, and Al Jefferson is going to do mean, not-nice things in the post. But hey, Melo needs three points for 20,000! All your carefully-worded verbiage goes here.

Hi Knickerbloggeristas, So I missed the first quarter and a half but the score was a robust 26-22 by the time I tuned in. And no, I don’t own a TiVo.

Sigh…killjoy. In any case, training camp is in full swing and so it seemed like an appropriate time to bring back the Knickerblogger Podcast. Bryan Gibberman and I discussed the chief storylines heading into the season, my trip to Media Day, and we peered into our Magic Eight Balls/consulted the Log Lady (Twin Peaks, yo!) to give you the skinny on what’s to come. Enjoy!
