Early Sunday evening, Flip Saunders broke a more than yearlong silence on Twitter to “set the facts straight” about 3-pointers. I don’t know what recent post on whose blog — since he’s clearly talking about disreputable “bloggers” and not REAL reporters or REAL fans — set him off and led him to nail this three-tweet treatise […]
Is Kevin Garnett the mentor we hope him to be?
