What's The Point? A Short Introduction.
The last thing the world needs is another blog. Especially a basketball blog written by someone who doesn't even pretend to be a basketball expert. While I can tell a pick and roll from a drive and kick, and know my PER from my Win Shares, there are plenty of other places that you can go for more in-depth analysis than I can provide. Instead, this a blog primarily about basketball history. This is a blog about Sam Lacey. This is a blog about Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf. This is a blog about Red Robbins. This is a blog that will give proper recognition to Dikembe Mutombo's postseason brilliance. This is a blog about the NBA and the ABA and the BAA and the NBL and (god willing) the ABL, but probably not the NBDL. This may even be a blog about Alex Groza. Finally, this is also a blog about the current NBA in which, in deference to established internet protocol, I will complain about Anthony Randolph's playing time and express amazement at the Rockets' refusal to take 16-23 foot jump shots. So, welcome to Waiting For Groza, where we're still waiting for the Indianapolis Olympians to fulfill their potential.
