The Nash-Hedo dynamic got a bit more interesting today with Gentry walking back a lot of the "Hedo as facilitator" talk.
Gentry Says Nash Will Play Off The Ball ... But Not Too Much - SB Nation Arizona
Gentry, for now, sees Hedo's role as similar to that of Boris Diaw when he was with the Suns. Hedo will get the ball in elbow isolations (as Amare often did) and but only occasionally on pick and rolls.
Turkoglu was most effective in Orlando when he was running the pick and roll and facilitating most of that team's offense. Will he be satisfied only getting limited chances to run the show?

First media day story posted. I'll have another later and Wil Cantrel was an interview machine. I'm sure he's going to have a ton to share later.
In the meant time, here's a meta post with lots of pictures:

And so it begins, not with a whimper or a bang, but with a simple gathering of players in their new lighter, more breathable uniforms and a bunch of media types milling around hoping to get a good quote or a better sandwich.
