Courtside Times

Kurt —  October 23, 2006

Last year Courtside Times was my first read every day on the NBA, a favorite place for smart research and conversation about the league and its players. They also foolishly let me also do some writing. Unfortunately, after a fast start, as the writers on the site got overwhelmed by a multitude of personal things (in my case, a second child), it kind of faded away.

But it was too good an idea and site to let go, so Mike (better known as Knickerblogger) has brought it back for the new NBA season, this time with a little more focus on news and commentary. Already there are a couple of good stories – a roundtable preview of the East and a look into the question does defense win championships? – both of which have sparked some interesting debates.

You’ll also notice that a couple of regulars from here at FB&G are now part of the Courtside team, Gatinho and Rob. For that reason alone you should check it out, just to call them two-timers.

  3. Tex likes what he sees

    From the LA Times:

    “Of course we’re faced with a number of key injuries, with [Chris] Mihm being out and of course Kobe,” he said. “And we’ve had other guys playing hurt quite a bit. But I think overall our preseason has been very good. They’re very eager.

    Tex also acknowledges the need to solve the frontcourt riddle and a desire for more Odom on offense.

  4. I really enjoyed the Courtside Times last year. I’m glad it’s back.
