I never know exactly what to write as an introduction to a links post. It's not JUST an easy way out when I don't have anything interesting/enough time to post, although it is those things. It's also my way of saying, "Hey, I read this. It was worth the time it took to read it. And more than that, it was worth the additional few minutes it took to put this post together. So please, read it. I think you'll find it interesting, entertaining, relevant, and worthwhile, too.
Without further ado, a few links for you:
- A pair of pieces from Erie Times-News reporter Duane Rankin on the BayHawks came to me via Google Alerts today. First, in an article I missed from September 21, Rankin reviews the BayHawks' free agent tryouts held in Erie. The second article says Cavs rookie Danny Green is at least open to the idea of playing in the D-League.
- D-League President Dan Reed, who I interviewed recently, has a new blog post over at Reed and Write about the annual D-League Coaches Meeting and the pipeline of coaches from the NBA Development League to the NBA.
- Social media isn't going away, and it's influence on the sports world is being felt more and more all the time. RealGM's Alex Kennedy wrote a guest post at Ball Don't Lie featuring a roundtable Twitter discussion with NBA players. Perhaps the most interesting bit of information coming from the post was the speculation that the NBA's Twitter policy, rumored to be released this week, will be less stringent than the NFL's strict, controlling policy mandated earlier this year.
