I think this is the tenth post in a row where I've complained about the amount of work I have instead of talking about basketball, and that is getting very boring for everyone involved, myself included. Either way, there are some things we have to discuss:
First, I neglected to mention last week that I am now writing a weekly column for Hardwood Paroxysm. It's titled HustleJunkie and runs on Tuesdays. You can read last week's installment here, and today's here.
Aside from the pleasure of working with a number of really talented writers over at HP, its also an excellent chance for me to do what I've been meaning to do for some time now: Not talk about the Spurs every damn post.
But it leaves me with a lingering question. If I now have a venue to muse on the state of the NBA as a whole, should I just give in and make this the full blown Spurs blog it is already on the cusp of being, or should I continue to keep up the charade of "this is an NBA blog that happens to be written by a Spurs fan." Well, actually, I lean towards the latter. I really do love the NBA as a whole, including its bumblingly tragicomic elements, and I don't want to limit myself. I hope to invest the time next season to really cover a variety of teams and players, and let whatever niche I carve for myself occur naturally. On that note, go over to HP and read my stuff, I think it ain't half bad.
And I promise, absolutely promise, that I will put up some meaningful content here at 48 Minutes this week. No excuses. Just good, ole' fashioned, amateur basketball analysis.
