What a sad thing to learn on a Friday before a long weekend. Total buzz kill.
I’d like to personally thank J.E, Tas, Trey and the TBJ crew for all the links, reblogs, retweets and all that social media jazz that helped promote NBAO. One of the funniest and friendliest group of guys in the blogosphere. Always willing to help other guys out even before they had made it big.
I doubt they go long without a home (they probably already figured it all out), but I wish them all the luck in basketball.
The Basketball Jones is a free agent! Undisputed king of the hoops blogosphere.
“The cool thing about playing for the Heat is when you’re LeBron’s teammate and you screw up, nobody gets mad at you for missing a shot or turning the ball over — they get mad at LeBron for passing to you in the first place,” - Greg Oden.
If Oden can manage 10-15 minutes a game. That would be huge. If he could just match the kind of just-block-shots-and-make wide-open-dunks production that Birdman gives in limited time. Big ”ifs” though. But that’s the kind of luck dynasties get. It will be fun to see.
