Another day closer to the start of the NBA season, another set of things you should read to get ready. Here are today’s suggested basketball readings.
Over at Blazers Edge, the SB Nation site for the Portland Trail Blazers, Ben Golliver brings us a must read interview with Jason Quick, the now former Trail Blazers beat writer for The Oregonian. Quick is very candid in discussing a wide range of topics from basketball to the life of a beat reporter.
ESPN has a summer forecast series going on, in which writers will try to answer questions and figure out how teams will look in the upcoming season. On ESPN Boston, the topic yesterday was Celtics’ rookie Kelly Olynyk. Forsberg (and other Celtics bloggers from across the web) try to predict what kind of season the long haired big man will have.
Zach Lowe is back from his mini vacation, and that means more great basketball writing from the best in the business. Today on Grantland, Lowe takes an in-depth look at LARRY SANDERS! who just inked a long term extension with the Bucks. In the excellent piece, Lowe provides a look at SANDERS!’s strengths and weaknesses, and why the Bucks were willing to give the young big man big money.
