Please join me in congratulating both Mike and Scott
Personal shout outs to both after the jump.D-League bloggers are similar to D-League players in that we are very much out of the spotlight.
I don't want to speak for Scott
, but I think the biggest appeal of covering the D-League
these past few seasons is the opportunity to root for the underdog, to shed some light on some deserving and under-appreciated people in the game and business of basketball.
Scott was one of the very first people to show me some love when I began my Blog Talk BayHawk blog way back in April of 2009, and I always admired the tireless work he did covering the D-League for Ridiculous Upside.
leaves a substantial void in the D-League blogosphere, but I have no doubt that his
work ethic and intelligent basketball mind will enable him to do great things in his
new role with the Skyforce
