Saturday Morning Links


Ah, you smell that?  It’s the sweet smell of freedom.  Well, it is for me, at least.  I took my last final yesterday, then hopped on a one way train to nowhere.  Sounded really fun, but then I woke up in New Albany.  Hope you guys are all feeling fine and dandy this morning as I guide you through what could possibly be the laziest Saturday morning of all time.  Grab your coffee and have a seat.  We’ll be here for a while.  On to the links…

–  Khem Birch this.  Khem Birch that.  You know what’s a good source for finding out Birch really feels?  His own mouth.  Thanks to 2012 recruit Anthony Bennett, we’ve come across the twitter account for Khem Birch.  He’s got some interesting things to say, so check it out.  But please don’t berate him.

–  Jerry Meyer concurs that UCLA is losing ground with Shabazz because…well, because they suck.  Terribly bad.  Their best player just got the boot and a one way ticket to Lithuania.  How in the heck did Ben Howland go to back to back Final Fours?

–  Ladies and gentlemen, USM would like to reintroduce you to Darnell Dodson.  Dodson has been reinstated once again at Souther Mississippi.  This article also states that Darnell is near graduation.  Good for him.

–  Another shameless plus, but go check out my good friends Houndmouth at the Irish Exit if you’re down to travel to New Albany this evening around 8pm.

–  Deandre Liggins has been impressing down in Orlando.  He’s a “competitor” but has a lot to work on, they say.  Lets hope he carries that on as games get underway.  The Magic’s first preseason game is tomorrow at 8pm versus the Miami Heat.

The same can be said for Josh Harrellson.  And he plays today at 2pm when the Knicks square off against Jay-Z’s Nets.

–  Our other rookie debuted last night, and it was a good one.  Kyrie Irving and Brandon Knight showed why they were the top two point-guards coming out of high school and into the league.  Knight put up 9 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds, and a steal in his preseason debut.  Irving may have put up more points, but Knight was quite impressive for his first time out there.  The Pistons seem more than happy to have him, despite the loss.

    Oops. Fixed, even though it just goes to Aaron’s twitter. He didn’t link real article nor could I find it.
