Breaks of the Game - has been rereleased

So check it out. Amazon has the book on sale. For those who don't know it was a book recommended by Dave way back when as good reading. It covers the change and growth of the NBA and connects it to Walton in the Post Championship years. I actually had to purchase the original print two years ago, which ran me a pretty penny, so it's nice to see that it's been rereleased. If you're a basketball nut and blazer nut, you should check it out. Either way, I'm amused that a book that looked like it was sinking into obscurity has resurrected itself and I'm also wonder if the promotion by Dave had anything to do with that.

Euro games - Batum and Rudy's Stats

Link to how Batum is doing and his stats. (click on the title above) I'm amused by this comment: "Forced to a stupid trip to Portland a few days before the Qualification finals, to check a little shoulder injury, he was a bit perturbed by this unnecessary 64 hours trip back to Oregon." So blunt, you can tell there's no bias there! Plus I would actually agree. Either way, i'm amused. Also, a link to rudy too: Click here for Rudy
