Today is the dawn of a new era here at Poor Man’s Commish (and Dream League, for that matter). From this day forward, blogposts will be more frequent, as will — as a direct result — our Twitter and Facebook posts. Best to explain with a Q&A…
How is this different than before? Well, with my busy schedule and extremely limited extracurricular time in front of the computer, it was ultra-difficult to get posts up, even though I still had a steady pulse on the stream of Poor Man’s Commish-related activity out there. Plus, it was a very disparate process, updating this site, Twitter, and Facebook. A pain, as it were.
Why should I be interested? I’m a basketball news fiend and there’s no way you could possibly keep up with everything like I can, so you’ll get a firehose of information directly relevant to you, your upcoming Dream League game, good hoops knowledge and experience and your surrounding community, such as other dreamleaguers.
Wait, I thought you just said you’re too busy to find yourself in front of computer? Ha! That’s the secret sauce I’m not telling you about. Anyhoo, you’ll get more stuff coming from me, although my schedule hasn’t really changed all that much. Call me Flash.
What are you going to be posting? Just like the new tag line at the top of the page says: “Views from the beneath the ivory tower”, the ivory tower being the NBA and related entities.
What about all the Jeremy Lin stuff? FYI, this is not a Jeremy Lin site, although the content is heavily weighted in his direction, for obvious reasons (the fact that he’s Asian-American and Dream League the second-biggest league catering to Asian-Americans in the world, being the first and foremost reason).
Then what is this site about? Anything in the ivory tower that somehow trickles down to either touch or act in parallel to we rec league minions, down here in the grassroots. Actually, it’s been like this since Day One, but I haven’t really had the bandwidth to tie each and every post back to our “Bizarro” world. Or, is the NBA the Bizarro world and we’re reality? I don’t know. Sometimes it’s hard to tell.
So this analogy to David Stern, what gives? Seriously, all the stuff he has to deal with? The complaining about refs. Team owners who don’t know what the hell they’re doing. Courts that get drenched with water when a pipe breaks. Expanding to China. Defense and role-players winning championships. Oh, did I mention the bitching and moaning about this or that that didn’t go your way when you lost your game? Believe it or not, I deal with it too. The only difference is that David Stern can hire someone to shield him from the crap. I can’t. Oh, and he gets paid gazillions for his job, while I make the inverse of that.
Do you still think “What happens in the NBA happens in Dream League”? Absolutely, which is the whole point. Well, maybe except forfeits and ticket sales. And dance teams with beautiful women. And mascots. Craig Sager. Dunks would be another thing. Getting paid to play. Alright, alright, maybe not much that happens in the ivory tower happens amongst the minions. We’ll just have to see, won’t we?
Does your posting this on April Fool’s Day have any bearing? Actually, no. I wanted to post this late night yesterday, but fell asleep. I guess in case I can’t come through with the above, I’ll have an excuse in the future!
