This Confuses Me.

I do not understand how someone like Paul Shirley ends up in the NBA. I mean, I get that it's because he's extremely good at basketball, but I'm confused as to how someone with his writing ability, sardonic personality, etc. etc. actually ends up being that good at basketball.

It can't just be because he's tall, can it?

Anyway, I strongly advise reading his "online journal," for a perspective on the NBA that you're unlikely to have ever seen before.

Additionally, he has begun to answer readers' questions on Bill Simmons's espn.com web page.

This is great stuff, even (or, perhaps, especially) if you don't like the NBA, and I recommend it strongly for anyone who'd like a laugh.
