Hello, gigantic Lakers following. Over the last week or so, when a particular day featured none of our coveted forum blue and gold on the screen; I, like many of us, went to "The Bar" and enjoyed reading and sporatically commenting about various other games taking place with the rest of the SSR community. I love this concept, I think it's a great system.
I would like to; however, suggest something new to do for just one day in the next week or so, when there isn't a Lakers game on. Looking around SB Nation on this lazy sunday, I saw several dedicated fans of both the Thunder and Grizzlies (mostly under a preview, and for Loud City, a game thread) trying to talk about the game to one another and then I saw this particular exchange:
It was this comment alone that had me thinking, "At the Bar" is great, but is there any chance we could give some of our non-trolling, basketball-loving attention to a smaller market team, preferably one we're mostly rooting for. I just see about 1,200 comments on any given "At the Bar" thread and about 90 on nearly every other SB nation blog. I think it'd be great if we could collectively decide upon maybe one game to all join a thread of any of the 6 other teams in the playoffs that we aren't facing (5, *cough*, Boston).
So out of the Grizzlies, Thunder, Heat, Celtics, Bulls, and Hawks; I was hoping we could choose one blog (maybe the mods could contact their mods on getting a legitimate thread set up if there isn't one already) and offer our company.
Go check out their blogs if you'd like to research before answering:
(P.S. First fanpost, I think it's fanpost appropriate, if not, my bad)
