So, yesterday a trade happened. I'm not going to talk a whole lot about the #BasketballReasons of the trade (other, than, perhaps to take a 5-minute break laughing myself silly at those of you who actually thought Toronto got better here) because I think Ben Gulker and Devin Digham both do a good job of that here and here. I just want to briefly talk about the economics.
Chip Rain from 3 Shades of Blue, a Truehoop Network blog dedicated to the Memphis Grizzlies, contacted me and some other analysts to ask if we would participate in a Q & A about how the Grizzlies don't seem to be suffering as much as one would expect without Zach Randolph. Turns out I was the only one who answered in time for his article, so Chip has a Q & A with me up this morning. It's only 3 questions, but I might add more later with Chip.
The NBA Season is ready to start on Christmas Day, the last couple of preseason games are being played as I write this up, and it's time for me to cater to every serious NBA fans love of season previews! The 2011 Geektastic Preview is going to be way too large for one article, so I'm dividing it up into divisions (and even so, it's going to be long, so get a cup of coffee!). I'm continuing the preview here with the Southwest Division, from worst to first.

I'm calling them guesses, not predictions, because this way if I'm completely wrong, I won't look as stupid.
