NBA Withdrawal: 10 Blogs to add to your RSS reader

With no game 7’s to thrill us in the conference finals of the NBA Playoffs, Basketball fans are going through major withdrawal symptoms and Thursday can’t come soon enough! Here at Heels on Hardwood I am running 2-a-days bringing you a listmania feature that should keep you entertained for the times in between games. (List #1: 10 people you should followon twitter during the NBA playoffs) Coming tomorrow 10 must watch basketball movies and 10 must read basketball books.

If you are a fan of the game I am sure your RSS reader is locked and loaded with the main blogs like True Hoop, Ball Don’t Lie and Fanhouse but there are some that you may not have heard of and you are missing out. The following is a list of some of my hidden gems (they may not be so hidden but I like the way that sounds … Okay?? Thanks!)

  1. On behalf of the animated crew of the Round Ball Review I want to thank you for giving them some love. In case this is the first time some people have checked them out I should let you know a couple of thing.

    First off I was given the site that creates them by Scott Carefoot of Raptor Blog. I did not want to do it without his blessing. He had used the program to do his own thing. Second the Round Ball Review is actually a take off from a radio segment I was a part of on a Sports Show called Jock Talk. The main guys of the round ball review are named after myself( J.B Superstar) which was my nickname at that station and the guy who did the segment with me who was name Joe and his last name began with G. Hence for the funny word play of (Joey G) who is not on the top of my Favourite Raptors list. I have done a bunch of these and people have enjoyed them so I have keep the bit going. That and the site that makes them is FREE to use.
