There is residual fallout from a lockout, of course. Something that is obviously not making many headlines is the fact that NBA news practically doesn’t exist anymore.
For the most part, the Rip City Project has been not in the business of breaking news, and also not in the business of covering news that wasn’t pertinent to the Blazers. Having said that, let me be the first to apologize that we’ve gone somewhat dormant in the last month or so.
When the lockout was announced, I was like every other blogger out there in so far as I felt the urge to get some kind of lockout manifesto in to the ether. But then a friend said something very profound to me. We’ve got all the time in the world to write about the lockout. And since there are individuals better equipped to break news, update CBA negotiations, and keep NBA fans abreast of which superstars are planning to hop the pond in the hopes of getting a paycheck in the next 12 months, we at the Rip City Project are going to do our best to stick to our mandate, and talk about things that are relevant to this team.
So thanks to those that reached out to the Rip City Project asking whether or not we’d hung it up. We haven’t, and if we had we would have at least let you know. We wouldn’t do you like that SJ.
I haven’t lost touch with the NBA blogosphere, Twitter hasn’t been locked out after all, and now that I know people are worried that RCP met a premature death, I’ll probably try to gather my thoughts to get a lockout piece out there. Part of the problem is that I’m still working through exactly what my lockout thoughts are. Part of the problem is that the lockout could last well in to 2012.
Either way, we’re still here, with no plans of going anywhere.
Also, check out Sean’s new column over at Hardwood Paroxysm, looks like he’s going to be a fixture over there.
Enjoy the rest of the lockout!
