The NBA – Where 365 Days Of Entertainment Happens

As the 2009 NBA playoffs wrapped up, fans began pondering about life without basketball – if only for a few months. Luckily with emergence of social media and the overwhelming NBA presence on these platforms there has been no “off-season”. Fans went straight from playoffs to mock drafts, to free agent frenzy to what I call “Marketing Season”. I’m not sure its been all positive, but you can’t deny that it’s kept the game relevant even though the shot clock is off.

Here are some of the highlights along with some link love…

D Wade is the “Worst Rapper”?

Looks like Baron Davis has recruited Wade to start up a contest on I Beat You (a business venture of Baron’s) Previously we have seen the likes of Steve Nash and Chris Bosh take part in contests but this one has the potential of being great if they can get Shaq and Ron Ron to enter.

ustream-stephJuly 24 2009 – Mark it down as the day @StarburyMarbury took over the Internets

My twitter feed has been taken over, no work is getting done by me (or anyone I follow on Twitter apparently) and I haven’t left my computer in fear of missing out on some goodness.

Marburython on USTREAM: Have At It
Marburython on Justin TV: Mooncricket

If you late to the party, Michelle over at NBA Musings has a raw transcript with a highlight package of went down.

Russbengtson said it best on Twitter: Picking a favorite quote from the @StarburyMarbury marathon is like picking a favorite Michael Jordan highlight.

Chris Bosh has tried this, Dwight Howard has tried this, Kevin Durant has tried this but nothing comes close to the pure gold Steph has been spitting for almost 7 hours (he plans to do this for 24 hours straight)
