Good morning, NBA fans!
Sorry to leave you all hanging this weekend – my son plays youth hockey and had five games at a tournament between Friday and Sunday! Whenever I thought I had the chance to write, I found out there was something else to do or somewhere else to go. Crazy!
To make up for it, I’ll give you a Super-Sized helping of today’s daily links!
There were eight games played in the NBA last night, seven of which did not involve LeBron James. Get your scores, recps, and video highlights here! [NBA.com]
Tonight, there will only be six games played, which means five games that do not involve LeBron James will take place, sadly. Why can’t he just play in all of them? Game previews! [NBA] And please excuse my sarcasm!
If you DON’T want to read about LeBron James, then you should avoid today’s Daily Dime like the plague. [ESPN] otherwise, proceed as planned.
Here’s a great excerpt from the book, Showtime, that focuses on Los Angeles Lakers great Michael Cooper and his battles with Boston’s Larry Bird. [Sports Illustrated]
Some interesting reading can be found here, with 50 notes, quotes and anecdotes from the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. [Sports Illustrated]
There’s a lot of people who still feel that Andrew Wiggins is the number one pick in the upcoming NBA draft. I sort of favor Jabari Parker – and here’s what Grant Hill has to say about that. [Sporting News]
I’m one of those guys who is on the fence when it comes to statistical analysis, so I appreciated this article over at Bleacher Report.
And your Boston Celtics link of the day asks the question, will Rajon Rondo ever thrive as the leader of the Boston Celtics? [b/r]
