Here's the link to my latest piece for ph.nba.com. It's titled 'Four levels of trash talking" with a nod to Hollywood. It started out as a scathing diatribe against officiating (hey, Danny Crawford and Ed Malloy) but ended up with a whimsical look at talking the talk. The re-worked version was longer than what I submitted. Hope you like condensed one!
My contributions to ph.nba.com come out every Wednesday. Hopefully, I will be able to do more.
