It's already a foregone conclusion for most people around the sporting world that the 2016-17 NBA season was one of the most unentertaining seasons in recent memory. From the start of the season, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors were on a collision course for their third matchup in the Finals in as many years. The lack of parity around the league was at an all time high, but free agency has more than made up for the lackluster season. 


On the latest edition of the S.W.A.P. Meet with James Moore, the former Spartan speaks from the heart yet again in reliving a tale of a time life dealt him a terribly unfortunate hand.
