The Malice at the Palace: An oral history of the scariest moment in NBA history

Blaha: Bill Laimbeer and I were broadcasting the game down by the Pistons bench. Everything happened on the other end of press row. And the reason I wasn't particularly shook up about it is because Bill Laimbeer didn't seem to be particularly bothered by it. He was kind of nonplussed by the whole thing. http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/7612311/view/full/an-oral-history-malice-palace

Why won’t Pistons announcers use Monroe’s nickname, Moose?

John (Westland, Mich.): Why won’t Pistons announcers use Monroe’s nickname, Moose? The fans are using it? Langlois: Pistons coaches and his teammates use it, John, but I haven’t sensed much enthusiasm for "Moose" among fans. The acquisition of a nickname is usually an organic process – it has to happen on its own. And sometimes, the nickname a player comes to be known by in public is different than what he’s known by in the smaller circles of his friends or teammates. Magic Johnson’s teammates didn’t call him Magic, for instance, at least not when they were in their world. To the Lakers of the ’80s, he was Buck. I’m not sure any nickname will ever catch on with Monroe. He just doesn’t seem like a nickname kind of guy. Pistons Mailbag - Thursday, February 10, 2011

It seems there are fewer and fewer sports announcers I really dig these days, but Gus Johnson is definitely one of them. With that in mind, I got pretty excited to learn that for at least one...

Humble Introduction

I don't want to make this long-drawn-out like some type of Academy Awards 'thank you' speech (although I can't promise there won't be tears), but I do want to take some time to welcome everyone to...
