In the Open Topic Tuesday post, user EnviroCaper asked for some interesting websites to learn more about the game. Something to expand one's roundball knowledge. There are plenty to be sure, but here are a few that caught my attention today.

Being able to lock down the opponent’s top offensive threat is great, but what’s even more valuable these days is a defender who can also stop his teammates’ assignments from scoring near the rim. The NBA players who do that best do so by challenging at the hoop without fouling—by going straight up.
Leave it to a bunch of science geeks to use their special testing laboratories and supercomputers to deduce that what our dads always told us growing up ("Use the backboard, son") is the best thing any player can do to be a better shooter.
