OK, they refer to him as World Free, but still. Hoopism has these very cool word clouds for each of the NBA teams featuring every player ever ranked by minutes played. It's certainly the largest font Jon Koncak's name has ever been put in.
I really enjoyed sliding through the various teams seeing strange little surprises (I had forgotten Hakeem's brief dalliance with Toronto) and people who show up prominently on several teams (Shaq in particular.) But perhaps my favorite part was going through the two teams I love (the Warriors and Celtics) and finding great little memories like any of the Warriors awful late 80s big men – Victor Alexander? Jim Petersen? The immortal Uwe Blab?
This was a lot of fun for me. Hope you enjoy it as well. And yes, I have BGGcon wrap ups coming early next week. The short answer is it was better than last year, even if most of the hot new games were not available for purchase this year.
