Basketball Things

Malcolm Gladwell has a great piece in the New Yorker on David vs. Goliath and the importance of the full court press.

Here's the Barack Obama version of "Where Will Amazing Happen This Year?" Also, here's the Teen Wolf and Hoosiers versions, courtesy of Bill Simmons - who, I'm very disappointed to say, announced that his new book will end up being called The Book of Basketball and not Tuesdays With Horry.

Look for the Celtics to shock the Magic tonight despite gaudy stats from Dwight Howard.

Doesn't look good for the Celts. Allen has shot terribly.

Gladwell's book is controversial - it's this year's Freakanomics. He identifies some interesting connections, but makes huge assumptions that can be shot down. His 10,000-hour rule has come under particular fire.
