The kids who were really serious about basketball were seldom seen playing – maybe practicing a few free throws. I… Read more »

Even though fans get either elated or irritated with all the trades and deals, it’s a fact that basketball players change teams a lot. Careers and popularity rise and fall –
Here it is, spring in Indiana (yes, one of the hotbeds of basketball fever) and that means wind. It blows across the fields like it has to be somewhere right now.
What it does, right now, is blow a lot of things around. And today I saw a great big ouch! Big enough to make me cringe.
Every once in a while you come upon something that makes you say, “Wow. Just wow.” Bill Simmons is the writer of the “Sports Guy” column for a couple of ESPN products, a blogger, writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live and author of books, now numbering 2. It was his second book, The Book of Basketball, that made me go, “Wow. Just wow.” It’s sub-title is The NBA According to the Sports Guy. And that pretty much says it. With a dash – no, a pound – of humor, a passionate (and opinionated) viewpoint on basketball through the years and a… Read more »
