I'm going with the latter -- what about you? I'll be taking off soon for tonight's game between the Cavs and Pistons at the Palace. As usual, check out HOOPSWORLD for my pre-game, halftime and post-game reports.
Random display of self-awareness: I've been linking to those HW game blogs for a while, but in case you haven't checked them out, please do. You probably noticed I'm not doing quite as many game recap-ish posts on DBB this year, but that's mostly because when I'm at the games for HOOPSWORLD, I'm writing about it on their site.
The link I posted above features nothing but a preview now, but in time it'll also have another pre-game post just before tip-off, halftime observations and my post-game reports. So check it out now and reload throughout the night. All told, I usually end up writing somewhere around 1,200-1,500 words about the game for HW. It's as much or more than I ever wrote before, but now I'm actually in the room getting quotes directly from the players and coaches instead of second-hand from one of the beat reporters (whom I respect more than ever, by the way -- the jobs they do despite a looming deadline is actually quite impressive when you see it in action.)
As such, if you ever have questions about the game that you want me to ask one of the players, leave a comment on the HOOPSWORLD game post and I'll see what I can do. I wish there was a way I could better integrate/highlight my experiences with HW on DBB, but right now that's not possible, so frequent links will have to do.
Okay, enough of that, back to regular business: feel free to discuss the game, the good ol' days when you read my content on DBB and DBB alone, how funny it is that Varejao thinks he's worth $9 million a year, etc in the comments.
