Been on vacation, but here are some recent NBA links.

August 6, 2015

Over the last week, my wife and I were in several places other than home. I still operate by flip phone, so traveling usually means I become unhinged from the internet. The blog dries up and cracks like old mud, and I have no idea about what's taking place in the world. Still, here are some recent pieces I wrote for ESPN TrueHoop's BallerBall:



In this year's NBA off season, the Portland Trailblazers, who just two seasons ago were a team on the rise, transformed into the Rose Garden Diaspora. Batum landed in Charlotte. Wesley Matthews moved to Dallas. LaMarcus Aldridge began a pilgrimage for greater wisdom to San Antonio. And Robin Lopez enrolled at Hogwarts.

Thus, Damian Lillard is all alone in the Great Northwest.

This situation prompted me to imagine the young point guard as an Uma Thurman-like protagonist in "Damian Lillard was Buried Alive." This was fun to write. The saga will most likely continue.

MJ is skeptical.
Before we left on our trip, rumors and news of a second Space Jam rocked not only the internet but the very fabric of the universe. Yet a second Space Jam would really be the third Space Jam because Boris Diaw already reinvented the franchise as a silent French film. You can read the very real interview about it at BallerBall

We'll continue to talk about whatever here shortly; it's a pretty open forum. Still, I would be remiss not to mention Matt Femrite's article at Nylon Calculus where he examines 0% usg games by NBA players over the years. It's basically a whose who of people renowned for doing little else than taking up space.
