  1. Not sure which is more awkward: some of those poses, the Knicks fan reaction to their pick at 4 or some of the suits. Great job following all the action, thanks Tracy!

  2. If this is the design of 2014-15 Hoops, I like it, a Lot! If we can get the full NBA in it (no paltry 300 cards, ignoring 125 players) it could be the best Panini set ever.

  3. Great Design – I Hope the photos will be cropped a little tighter than last year. When is the estimated release date for 2015-16 Hoops
