About 22 years ago, I almost went to work here. (I will be eternally grateful, as that newspaper allowed me to jack a living wage out of the paper I was working for at the time.) However, and I think I speak for all readers of this blog, this is about the worst idea in sports media since the moment somebody said, "Hey, let's call it Around The Horn!" My lord, too much of journalism is already a big old bowl of Wheatena -- David Broder, please call your car service -- and now it's spreading into the one part of the newspaper where the subject is sufficiently unimportant to demand irreverence. Heavens to murgatroyd, what's next?

“Still too early, but I share the concern. Would love to see the eventual second unit guys – Baby, Jeff Green, Arroyo, West and probably Kristic – get to play together. Rondo looks exhausted and it would be helpful if Doc could cut back his minutes. Also, I strongly suspect there were concerns that Perk was not the same player anymore.”
“Packer was serious about hoops. I knew it was a big game when Musberger/Nantz would call a game with Packer. He was old school so he took delight in fundamentals such as a pick/roll or boxing out a rebounder. I'm still a young kid, but I enjoyed his analysis.”
