Introducing some consistency to A Substitute For War: Daily themes (+ This week’s preview)

with 2 comments

I decided this NBA Season I’m going to try and write at a more consistent level. To do this I’m introducing daily themes for each day, which are:

Monday: MVP Monday/Power Rankings – Bringing back a weekly article when Matt Johnson was a regular contributor, I’ll discuss the top 5 in the MVP race and other players who had a particularly big week. I’ll also contribute a team power rankings.

Tuesday: Stats Tuesday – My attempt to say something insightful statistically once a week

Wednesday: Video blog Wednesday – I’ll try to consistency make more youtube videos on general thoughts on the NBA

Thursday: 33 point Thursday – I’ll post an article related to my 33 point method for evaluating talent that I introduced a few weeks ago

Friday: Prospect Friday – Posts on NBA Draft prospects and the NCAA if I have anything to say about it

Here is my plan for this week:

Monday: MVP Race predictions

Tuesday: Demar Derozan, OJ Mayo, Michael Beasley and the possessions game catching up to young players

Wednesday: Why I’m down on the 2012-2013 Minnesota Timberwolves’ season (video blog)

Thursday: Team record predictions using the 33pt method

Friday: An early look at Shabazz Muhammed (video scouting report)

It’ll be work, but let’s see if A Substitute for War can get taken to the next level
