Great Article

 

ESPN.com Bill Simmons wraps with Malcolm Gladwell, author of Tipping Point, Blink and Outliers, who surprisingly enough knows quite a bit about the NBA and NFL. Both talk extensively about the draft and about NBA tactics, focusing on the underutilization of the full-court press.

“You can easily find 10th, 11th and 12th men to make that press work. You know how many athletic swingmen are out there? Oodles. There's always another Dahntay Jones or Josh Powell killing himself in the D-League hoping for a chance.” states Simmons

There is also an interesting comment made about if the NBA's all-white guy team could compete with the NBA's all-black guy team. And, according to Simmons, foreigners don't count as white guys. My All-American White-Guy team- Bird, West, Maravich, Stockton, Walton and Bill Laimbeer.

Heres the link, it's spit into three separate articles:
