My favourite Halifax basketball writer has a new blog post up on the Chronicle Herald website. Lucas just ponders the possibility of a Halifax starting its own league, but recent happenings seem to call that into question. Lucas’ blog is normally just recaps of games (his analysis is much better than mine since he takes notes and actually knows something about basketball), so this is a bit of a surprising departure for him. It’s mostly speculation and recaps of internet rumours, but go take a look. It’s interesting to me that the Halifax media have all been on the same page on this (even AJ Walling has come around ever since SMU football season ended and he finally realised that St. Pats wasn’t a school anymore) and agree that Halifax are good and fun to watch and the ABA sucks. I also think that the Rainmen get more media coverage in a week than most ABA teams get all year.
Lucas also wrote an article in todays paper on LaBoise Gladden. Chris Kallen wrote an article about Halifax’s best player, Jermaine Anderson for the Daily News today. Even if Halifax somehow manages to play next season it is a pretty safe bet that Anderson will be going elsewhere. He is the only reason why we have a competent half course offense. (God knows it isn’t the brilliant play calling from Coach Lewis. I KNOW WHAT EVERY ONE OF YOUR THREE PLAYS ARE, YOU IDIOT. WHY BOTHER CALLING #1 EVERYTIME DOWN THE COURT?! IT’S JUST A PICK AND ROLL AND EVERYONE KNOWS IT! STOP CALLING THAT PLAY… JUST STOP IT.… please stop…. please)
