We apologize for going dormant for the past two weeks or so, but a) it’s a dead period for the NBA offseason because The Angel of Stern does everything in his power to prevent off-the-court news stories from taking the shine off the Finals, b) we do this part time, so now seems like a good time to take a breather, c) the only real news recently was a behind-closed-doors arbitration hearing with Kenneth Dam that, while likely deciding the fate of the franchise in the near-to-medium term, provided precious little in the way of facts to report on, and d) complaining that the Knicks’ summer league schedule coincides directly with my summer vacation this year will only serve to piss of my wife.
Anyhow, we’re back now and I have two links that I want to pass along:
- Here is the latest installment from Great Friend of the Blog, Stacey (am I supposed to use your internet handle? I don’t know what the etiquette is here), over at Aestheddict Magazine, wherein she likens Jeremy Lin to Our Holy Redeemer of Starks.
- For those of you who live in the New York metropolitan area or have MSG on your cable package (read: none of the actual writers on this site), MSG has apparently unearthed a copy of Clyde Frazier leading the Southern Illinois Salukis to a victory over Marquette in the 1967 NIT Championship Game and will be playing it on Sunday. I think that’s cool and is probably worth firing up the ol’ DVR for.
