NBA media day is a celebration around the league for the start of the new season. The day gives fans and media members a first look at team personnel after the offseason. A lot has happened since the Warriors won their third title in four seasons. LeBron James is a Laker, Kawhi Leonard is a Raptor and Jimmy Butler is most likely on his way out of Minnesota.
The first exhibition game of the NBA preseason is on Sept. 28 when the Philadelphia 76ers play Melbourne United and the Boston Celtics take on the Charlotte Hornets. The NBA regular season begins on Oct. 16 with the champs, the Warriors, taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder.
But before any of that can get underway, players and coaches must face the media:
