NBA Bloggers Spreading Like a Virus Around ESPN.com

ESPN.com's Daily Dime put together some hefty team previews, complete with little nuggets of information from many NBA bloggers.

Editor Royce Webb asked me to help wrangle those, which is why I was desperately seeking Magic and Grizzlies bloggers last week. Now, you can see the world of media changing before your very eyes. On the left side of the screen you can read Tim Legler's sober account of the Wizards' fortunes:

Because of the trio of Arenas, Butler and Jamison, the Wizards will make their third straight playoff appearance. But having no interior threat and an aversion to playing defense will limit their success.

Barely an inch to the right, you'll find Wizznutzz saying this:

We would get Wiz logo tats if we could ...

... share a ham with Kevin Duckworth.

... be God Shammgod's MySpace friend.

... get Tyrone Nesby to stop calling our mom.

Brilliant! People, we are living in a time of change. At least when it comes to online basketball coverage. You can see all the Eastern Conference teams on the main NBA page today, and tomorrow we'll see the West.
