Commenter Petey responds to the recap of yesterday’s Phoenix game with a very timely and appropriate reference to a post on Eric Musselman’s blog: “I don’t have any answers. Maybe that high S/R should be run with EJ and Camby. Maybe you feed Thornton in the post and lure the Phoenix bigs[...]
I have a post up at TrueHoop that lays out what I believe is a fair characterization of the debate over the Randolph acquisition: When considering ‘desirability of location,’ we might also want to look at the organization itself. When the Clippers traded Cuttino Mobley and Tim Thomas (b[...]

Meet the new Zach, same as the old Zach. Zach Randolph and I have a troubled history together. I first became aware of him when I caught a bit of the 2000 McDonald’s All-America Game on TV. I remember thinking as I watched him dominate the paint (he went on to win MVP), “This guy is big,[...]
