Watch all of this interview, it's worth it.
(I'm sorry I keep relentlessly invoking Bill Russell. Working on the book has convinced me that he's underrated. Calm down, everyone knows he's the greatest center ever and all.

As of the moment, my definitive say on NBA/Arizona. There are a lot of holes, and no one seems to know if my final conclusion is cynical, overly idealistic, or both. Was accused by one friends of "double-Obama" maneuvers. Anyway, please read, and if you can't stand the comments there, talk here.
Can't wait for Treme tonight. And please, oh please, let us see the Hawks as they should be.
