It’s hardly a secret that the newspaper industry is dying, slowly getting replaced by a medium that can support videos of dining dogs and moving pictures of large teenagers in pink shirts thanking their lord and savior for a three-point shot as pixelated waffles rain in the foreground.
But today, the Star-Ledger’s given me a reason to act like the man above, with an honorary section of the sports section dedicated to the history of the New Jersey Nets.
They’ve got your “best” lists, ranging from top five highest-impact players to five biggest drug suspensions. They’ve got your Dave D’Alessandro ripping the Nets for 35 years of indifference article. They postulate on Dr. J, Chocolate Thunder, and Draz. They’ve got a great personal piece on Buck.
So, if you’re interested, swing by your nearest hollowed-out cave where they keep the newspapers and pick up a Star-Ledger.
