There is an awesome Mavs fan site out there if you get a wild hair...they post all kinds of statistical analysis and have some really good discussions about the NBA as well as the Mavs at dallasbasketball.com...click on "Lone Mavs Fan" Some of the best and unbiased sports talk anywhere. There are some serious statisticians and analysts (not of the Barkley or Stephen A. ilk) on there. It's Mavs heavy, but the threads and discussion are of excellent quality.
Where did you go to school? I'm at a DIII school in Abilene.
i totally agree with you about a lot of these basketball fans... i think stephen a smith is way more pathetic now that jaffe told him to be more subdued. also, how does that fool get off critiquing contestants on that lame show they have?
i'll check out the site... i like to see something other than the same 6 sites I visit everyday when I get an opportunity.
check out 82games.com if you haven't (im pretty sure you have), that's a really cool site if you're into "actuality" style statistics, such as relative player value and best on-court combos.
i went to uchicago... we were ranked #1 in 2000-2001 preseason, held it all season (first and last time i think), hosted a sectional, then crapped out to ill. wesleyan in the elite 8. i covered them all year so i felt really bad for the coach (great guy, taught me a lot about basketball) when they lost. i was also pissed because i was sure I was going to get to go to salem on the paper's dime.
if you get a wild hair yourself, here is the bracket from that year:
do you go to christian or ross state or where?
