Where's Alex Len?
I noticed he hasn't participated in the SL. Is he injured or something? I wanted to see the kid play against other bigs in the SL like Val, Cody Zeller, Henson and...(excuse my Spur-ness)...Aaron Baynes.
He had surgery on his ankle.
Also, the poster formerly known as R-Sharpe (or something like that), I want to take a moment to address what I feel is a rather under utilized function on this very site (by most people, not just you). Many people are probably like, "Well, what in the hell does Mikey V actually do on NBADraft.net other than write the occasional article we can nitpick?" (nitpick away, friends!) Well, I direct you to Alex Len's profile for an example:
If you go to the lower headings of Mr. Len's profile, you will see, "Related Content" and "Related News". The "Related News" is something I have worked my @ss off keeping current and keeping people informed. So, if you are wondering something about a player, I urge you to check this section. Not only that, if you want to learn more about the player and his progression (there are actually a lot of really interesting stories on Alex Len, a lot from Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post who covers the Maryland Terrapins), that is what this section provides.
I do not necessarily keep this up by myself, but I would say have done close to 95% of it for this past year and a bit. If the guy is a draft target, chances are I have something about them or on them. The one I go into absolute overdrive for is Andrew Wiggins. Seeing that I am Canadian (dual citizen, actually have one more as well, but born and raised in Canada as well as living here currently), plus he is relatively awesome, Andrew Wiggins more than likely gets a check from me everyday and has TONS of articles on him. However, I tend to check all top draft prospects for the coming year and will put major news on the new entry guys (2012/2013 mainly).
R-Sharpe, not picking on you, just saying that if you ever have questions like this again and do not want to Google it, check the players profile because it might have some poignant info (had the "Len undergoes ankle surgery" right at the top). If anyone would like to send me some news or if they feel I have missed something big, very glad to get help or suggestions. Just send it to:
Hoping this alerts people to a fun way to get information on some of your favorite prospects!
Thanks for helping maintain the site, Mikey.
I'm still not sure how the .net is managed, but it's cool to know that some users are responsible for uploading content.
Side note: Is it just me or are those Adidas sleeve jersey's just awful. It doesn't look comfortable, no sleeves are classic, and to me the worst part are the v necks, this isn't a fashion show.
Good looking out, Mikey.
Your good spirit deserves this:
That was almost as humiliating as this:
Also, seeing that no one has posted this yet, here is Dirk Nowitzki giving his best go at Karaoke:
Finally, a Flula blast from the past with his take on "Why NBA Lockout Is Not Great":
gotta love Wade laughing his ass off on the Dwight diss
