What sort of things are you looking forward to about Media Day? In years past, it was the last day we saw a smiling Rick Carlisle, able and willing to answer questions without his usual scowl.
I, for one, am looking forward to seeing how Reggie Bullock interacts with his new teammates. Kristaps Porzingis is always good with thoughtful answers to questions. Though it may not come across via social media today, there will be limited access today with only a certain number of in-person media allowed. The rest of us, including Mavs Moneyball, will be on the Zoom today.
