Hi, welcome back, Shoals. If you live in Los Angeles, I'll be on ESPN Radio at 12:45.
Kindly observe my newest Sporting News column, which is about playoff anti-heroes. If you felt my previous efforts were a little too straight-laced, this should come as a pleasant surprise.
Also, Obama on HBO tonight talking about his relationship with hoops. Expect a post later. I also want to do a "State of FreeDarko Heading into the Playoffs" monster before this weekend. I hope it happens.
