I love the NBA offseason for one simple reason. It is the only time of the year when every team is a contender. It's the time of the year when long-suffering Warriors fans sick of missing the playoffs or troubled T-Wolves fans outraged at a string of first-round playoff exits can dream.

Unfortunately, the dream is about to end. The summer is winding down. Most of the big moves have been made. Dreams are giving way to the harsh realities of the real world.

We live in a world where the rich just keep getting richer and the poor just keep getting poorer.
