  1. Always appreciate the link love, LLC, so I hate to nitpick, but…(wonders how to say this)…we don’t have a “Scott Weinstein” on staff at D-LeagueDigest. Matt Kolsky did write the piece you linked though.

    In the meantime, Scott Weinstein seems an interesting juxtaposition of D-League blogging comrades Steve Weinman (me, of D-LeagueDigest) and Scott Schroeder of RU, though I’m not sure how we factor a “stein” in there. :-D

    Again, thanks as always for the link.


  2. Thanks for pointing that out, Scott… I mean, Matt… err.. Steve! You D-League types all look alike anyway. ;)

    It’s been fixed now.

    LLC does a great job on these links — plenty of great content.
