Handing Out Awards

As the inspiration for the querie that Henry Abbott (TrueHoop) put to team bloggers to be used in ESPN.com's 2007 NBA previews, Chip and I felt that it was our duty to select the best questions that were submitted. It turned out to be a difficult task, as nearly all the bloggers were creative in the questions they would ask their team's GM. So here are our Top 5:

1. Lang Whitaker, slamonline.com: Atlanta Hawks

2. J.E. Skeets, The Basketball Jones: Toronto Raptors

3. Dumpy, NetsDaily: New Jersey Nets

4. Liston, Introducing Liston: Minnesota Timberwolves

5. Wizznutzz: Washington Wizards

All the bloggers did a fantastic job and we here at 3 Shades of Blue salute you.

There were some really funny things and some serious questions as well.

I thought a real question that I would like answered was the Spurs question "What happened with James White?" White was a player the Spurs traded to acquire who was subsequently released. It isn't like the Spurs to make mistakes like that. Too bad R C Buford probably won't answer that question.

I wonder how many bloggers used the Chris Wallace story to try and get some face to face time with their GM's?
