Tear the Vines Off Christmas
Well, here it is. The Big OD. Super Tuesday. Nexus of the Months. Crown of Cardboard Art.
I see no future for Spurs/Blazers, unless you've got a passing interesting in the Travis Outlaw bandwagon. Rocket/Lakers, on the other hand, is major—after all these years, and all those distractions, it's still T-MAC/KOBE. Then there's all that designer caviar about Adelman's offense and how quick Javaris Crittendon gets his jersey in the NBA store.
Longform now is an Opening Day expulusion for the ages. Our Deadspin previews finish up this afternoon with Dr. LIC's on Garnett; don't sleep on The Recluse's Steve Nash piece. And then expect us back there in two weeks, and then every two weeks after that.
We also have an important announcement: We've invited Ty Keenan and Carter Blanchard to join the staff of FreeDarko. You probably know them from our comments section, or their ever-incisive Plissken at the Buzzer. They'll be chipping in a few pieces a month, upholding the mission of this site while bringing their own spinning brains to the table. Like a good basketball team!
And lastly, donations are still always welcome. Maybe I'll even give Billups some now that we're semi-paid.
Update: I'm quoted in this Portfolio article about marketing the Hornets, and Dr. LIC once again visits with the Bleacher Bloggers.
Update Numero Dos: The good Doctor's KG piece is now up at D'spin. Read that.
