A lot of people have said nice things about TrueHoop since it started in May 2005. Having no shame, I decided to compile some of them here:
"I'm really impressed with it. My roots were in the blog world pre-ESPN and I've always had an affinity for guys who go out and do it on their own. Yours is, honestly, the best I've seen in the NBA world."
"Been reading your site religiously...You do a very nice job. Keep it up."
"I will never turn down an opportunity to praise TrueHoop."
"I do frequent and enjoy the hell out of your site."
--SI.com Columist Kelly Dwyer (who gave me permission to quote him here so long as I include that he has "a musky, Victor Mature-like scent.")
"How good is Abbott’s blog? Well, let’s put it this way: If you don’t read True Hoop, you can hardly consider yourself an NBA fan."
"One of my first stops on my daily tour of the NBA."
"Was taking my weekly scroll through your compendium of truthiness, and happened upon the notice that you just had your first-year anniversary. Belated happy birthday to youse guys, and thanks for the great work."
--Newark Star-Ledger's Dave D'Alessandro
"Just wanted to drop a note to tell you how great I think TrueHoop has become... a must see on a daily basis."
"Thoughtful, engaging news and commentary on the world of professional basketball."
"TrueHoop.com is the finest NBA blog on the internet."
"My close personal friends know that the very first thing I do when I awake in the morning is check out Henry Abbott’s TrueHoop. OK, that’s not entirely true. The very first thing I do is feed the dog and cats, search for some pants, check my email and Google myself to see if David Laing’s been talking shit about me again. But the 5th thing I do every morning is check out Henry Abbott’s TrueHoop."
"Most prolific NBA blogger can do it all: investigative reporting, media commentary, and basketball analysis."
"Spotted another typo..."
