A comment by Norsktroll in one of the Season Preview posts came like a thunderbolt out of the blue to strike me on the head, making me aware that I had done something quite careless, thoughtless, and really inexcusable. I've been writing these season previews for easy consumption, keeping them brief, general, and at times humorous. But in doing so I failed in one of my critical duties as a blogger, which was to point you to where you could get a better estimation. In case you haven't noticed, the NBA blogroll at SBN has grown considerably in the last couple of months and it will grow even more. This network is full of writers that really know their stuff about their teams. By not providing links to them in the season previews I've done so far I've not only been insulting them, I've also (unintentionally) been implying that my write-up is better or more accurate than theirs. Nothing could be further from the truth.
My only excuse (and it's a poor one) is that I've been doing these for years from the same template, which by now is quite old, and which didn't have a spot for links. I've remedied that starting with today's post on the Magic, which cites Third Quarter Collapse. Previews of teams for which we have SBN sites will include links from now on.
I apologize without reservation to the bloggers of teams we've already covered. A list is below. It would do my heart good if some Blazersedge readers headed to some of them and checked them out today. The writers of this network really do have some good stuff to offer.
I'd also like to put an offer before Blazersedge readers. I would love to have a reader designated as an ambassador to each of our sister site NBA blogs. The ambassador for a site would check out what's written there and convey anything that might be of interest to us. This would be a great thing to do if you have secondary teams that you like that we also cover. It would also be great if you just love the NBA and reading. Let me know if you're interested in being an ambassador to an SBN-NBA blog and I'll organize it.
Here are the sources for teams that we've already previewed. If you're interested, check them out!
