The Machines Will Rise Up One Day I had a big long post going, but there was a quick power surge and It was lost. But then I reflected and realized it was probably boring anyway. It was about NBA realignment. I don't think its official yet, but the proposal is changing the conferences to 3 divisions apiece, with Charlotte going to the East and New Orleans to the West. Heres the new East:
Northeast: Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets, Philadelphia 76ers, Toronto Raptors Southeast: Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Bobcats, Orlando Magic, Miami Heat, Washington Wizards Central: Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks
Not much change for the Bulls, except possibly less games against the Raptors, Heat and Hawks...which is kind of a bummer. Plugs! I definately want to touch on this though. It warms my little heart to read emails from other basketball bloggers saying they enjoy my site. When I first began, the Basketball Blogosphere didn't seem to have much community, at least not to the extent of baseball sites. But its good to see that its possibly changing. So on with the link dance of love... AllThingsNBA: I mentioned this site before, but I'm gonna be adding it to my links on the left. It has TONS of content, and the best part is that you can search posts by team..which is neat-o. Basketball Rules: Its not about the rules of basketball. I think it means "Basketball RULES!"....kind of like "The Cider House RULES!". This is another all-nba blog, and with a new design so you dont have to look at the hideous green background anymore :) March Madness Report: Produced by my buddy Jeff..and as you can guess it is about the college game. Unlike me, he REALLY knows his stuff. So if you have an interest in college hoops (especially big10 and University of Illinois....but I mean that's everybody), Its definately worth a read. I personally know he has nothing better to do so it'll hopefully be updated often. and a final note, Tim at The End of the Bench asked me to plug his fantasy basketball league. So click on the link if you want to finish second place to him. I'm not joining the league due to deep psychological reasons that I dont care to discuss. (man its hard to convey sarcasm on the internet....) I'll be gone this weekend, so check out these new links and the usual suspects while i'm gone.
