I'm peeking in from vacation because today marks the first SBN-NBA network-wide discussion of the 2013 off-season. All the NBA blogs around the network will tackle the same question today. Be sure and click different sites to see their takes and participate in the conversation!

The inaugural discussion topic for 2013: "If you were NBA Commissioner for a day, what would you do?" Several folks from our site warmed up on this topic last week. Now it's time to weigh in officially.

The first thing I'd do in preparation for becoming NBA Commissioner is check out THIS VIDEO. If you haven't already, you should too. After that, figuring out what to do is easy!

Cue the beat, sit down, and let me tell you what I'd do as Commissioner for a day.
