Boston, Dallas, Memphis and the Lakers share one win amongst themselves and 10 losses. So understand me when I tell you that everything – absolutely everything – written here is a complete guess. So it goes when you’re watching basketball as messy as this.Please, blog, may I have some more?
A week into the lockout and about a dozen players have already ditched the United Statesfor Europe. None bigger than Deron Williams, who agreed in principle to play with Besiktas in Turkey. As the same team also wooed Zaza Pachulia, it looks like we have a genuine European Dream Team on our hands.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Let’s just get it out of the way now: I don’t follow college basketball. Every year, a new line of freshman enter the league and I think, “It would really be helpful if I knew anything about these guys.” Then a squirrel passes outside my window or a dust particle hitting the sunlight catches my eye and I’ve already forgotten what I was just thinking about.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Every once in a while when my DVR is empty and there are no dead cats in the alley for me to watch the raccoons chew on, I take a slow walk on over to my local post office and do a little pre-holiday shopping for my girlfriend.Please, blog, may I have some more?
One more night. I know I’ve got a long summer filled with postseason rankings ahead of me. Not to mention keepers, sleepers, rookies, lockout news, more lockout news, Ron Artest-is-bored-and-crazy news, Greg Oden-is-progressing-and-looking-forward-to-a-lockout-shortened season news, Hey-is-that-Luke-Ridnour?-Why-is-he-even-in-this-state-much-less-at-my-laundromat-news, preseason rankings, and the inevitable process of writing about fantasy basketball if there is no real basketball.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Every time I type C.J. Miles’ name, I want to type Watson. I almost type it. I get to the “t” and have to delete. This tells me that Miles just hasn’t made a name for himself yet. Hasn’t carved out his place.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s been said that Kevin Durant is an angel, a lamb of a guy; really top-shelf goods inside and out. For the most part, I tend to believe this, but everyone’s got their dark peccadilloes. Some people rub the free cologne samples in magazines over their bodies instead of showering.Please, blog, may I have some more?
After last month’s report that Baron Davis had ballooned to the weight of Guernsey cow was squashed, it seemed like all was right in La-La Land again. Now reports are that, although he’s not quite bovine, Davis is still paunchy, out of shape and Vinny Del Negro ain’t thrilled about it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
When I was 14, I was convinced girls liked guys with pained and mysterious pasts. Every date I ever went on until I was 20, I managed to sneak in hints that I was somehow bruised and tormented with something that made me sensitive and mature and really “get” Belle & Sebastian albums.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The upcoming season hasn’t begun yet. Really, it’s still a glimmer in your eye, a good idea, a bottle of Boone’s Farm and a basement futon away from fruition. What you do with fruit and futons is your own business, unless it involves keepers.Please, blog, may I have some more?
