In lieu of a preview or an elaborate post this evening, here are a few quick passes until a heavy day on Scribe tomorrow:
/selstart> /selend>From New York Magazine, Chris Smith delves into how Bronx native, Donnie Walsh, is hoping to resurrect his hometown franchise. This shall be interesting considering a) that this magazine rarely ventures into sports unless there's something 'sexy' and b) no one really knows where this path will lead, no matter how well Walsh is regarded.
- Sticking with the Five Boroughs somewhat is an article from this weekend's New York Times Magazine. Bruce Schoenfeld chronicles the long and bizarre (mostly bizarre) road to have professional basketball... in Oklahoma City.
- From Advertising Age, Rich Thomaselli adds another comparison of one number 23 to another; this time, in relation to Madison Avenue. Hey, it's the fulltime job talking over here.
- From The Biz of Basketball, Maury Brown highlights the special shoe that Kevin Garnett took to the floor during tonight's opener. You should now want your face to adorn a shoe.
- Finally, this breaks from Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo! Sports. Anyone who has mentioned the New Jersey Nets in person to me has heard me rant somewhat about their tenable situation in trying to move to Brooklyn. This may further prove the point that I've been making... no one's coming to Brooklyn. More on this later.
