Happy Tuesday, everyone!
Man, it’s hard to believe that the NBA season is already half-way done, isn’t it? I remember joining Hardwood Houdini back in October, and being all jacked-up to cover the Boston Celtics and the NBA. Now I look at the calendar and see that Boston has already played 46 games – that’s crazy! I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait until after the All-Star break, when the final push to make the playoffs begins and things REALLY start heating up on the hardwood around the league.
All right – time for me to shut up and turn things over to today’s links!
