We will soon be getting inundated with actual real NBA topics to talk about so let’s have fun for a minute.

In less than one measly month’s time we will have actual NBA preseason action happening. Where did the dog days go? It’s been such an eventful offseason it kind of weirdly flew by, right?

Anyway, in light of real news coming in droves very soon we thought it would be fun to take a minute to give a few Top 5 lists and invite you to share yours while loving or picking ours to bits, your choice.

1. What are your top 5 favorite NBA teams?
2. What are your top 5 favorite albums?
