…because in only a few hours we’ll have our official Euroleague draw.  With the new format intact, we’ll be welcoming some fresh faces into the mix and saying goodbye to a couple of past participants.

Who are the favorites?  The dark horses?  Which matchups are we most looking forward to? Which team is about to have their lunch eaten?  Who needs to sign somebody to have a shot?

It’s safe to say that we might–just might–have opinions on that and more.

And also in the “What to watch for” category: Slam and Freaknick’s Free Agent Frenzy Battlegrounds Podcast will be available by noonish, EST on July 8.  Novicka or Lior?  Bourousis or Siskauskas? Bluthenthal or Tepic?  We’ll play free agent toss-up, head-to-head style.

So keep checking back, and if you need to shake the rust off of your Euroleague fanhood, check what Week 1 had in store last season:
