Preseason NBA coverage nearly always comes packaged with a disclaimer: It's just the preseason. The implication being that we can't learn anything from preseason basketball performance because teams treat the exhibitions as a regular-season lay-up line and not real competition. If the players don't treat the games like they mean something, then why should we?
Because they do mean something.
