Our leading (and only) basketball writer gives his, um, blunted, unconventional – and occasionally obsessively detailed – take on recent happenings in the hoops world.
What’s new, Ballers?!
The sweet spot of the year for roundball is upon us: March Madness is coming up, and the NBA season is past the All-Star break, gathering momentum toward playoff and/or divisional races. After taking some needed time off after the NFL season, we’re back!
Sometime this weekend we’ll be unveiling TFQ’s Upside Down Awards for the 2014 NFL season. The UDAs are our unique (and occasionally obscene) take on the high and low points of the NFL season that was. Keep an eye out for that, and more regular postings of High Posts.
Here’s a list of the topics from the ‘cast, courtesy PhdSteve on Raptors Republic:
- Michael and Greg’s preview of Marcus Smart on ESPN True Hoop’s bucksketball.com
- The Jimmer to Toronto? Does the prophet strike again?
- Is World Peace possible in smoke city?
- A review of the trade deadline that came and went and what it can tell us about the Raptors, Ujiri, and the plan going forward.
- Tim Chisholm’s piece on transcendent players
- What about a Bosh reunion?
- Kyle Lowry, Kyle Lowry, and more Kyle frickin Lowry
- The development of Tre Rosé, The onus on Jonas and the teams last 7 days that provided 2 wins against Cleveland, a win over Orlando, and a tight loss to the red hot Bulls
- What to expect or hope for in the next 10 days in what may be the toughest part of the remaining schedule
- Some college ball (about 10 mins at the end) where we talk Gators as #1, preview the ACC and SEC, and Steve tries to convince Blair and Mike that UCLA can still win it all!
