Today is an odd day.
i’m thrilled to announce that as of this week, I’ll be joining SI.com’s NBA staff — along with the tremendous Ben Golliver of Blazer’s Edge and CBS Sports — to take over Zach Lowe’s stead at The Point Forward. Yet on the heels of that announcement comes another, more somber note; after three years and change of commentary, recaps, and finding ways to justify the performance of Erick Dampier, I’ll be stepping down as the lead writer of this fair blog. This isn’t an actual goodbye, per se, but an acknowledgement of a transition; I’ll still be involved here at The Two Man Game as editor-in-chief, but this is likely the last you’ll have to deal with my written indulgences in this particular space.
This day would be much more difficult if I weren’t still able to claim to be a member of both The Two Man Game and the TrueHoop Network, but I’ll be hanging around. I’ll still be coordinating all of the coverage here and writing elsewhere. I’ll still be available on Twitter (@RobMahoney) and via email (thetwomangame[at]gmail.com). I’ll still be a member of the THN family. The specifics of the coverage here may change, but only in the way that all things eventually do.
It’s been an absolute pleasure to write The Two Man Game, and I can’t thank you all enough for lending me your attention and feeding this site with your comments. I sincerely hope that you’ve enjoyed your stops here—however frequent or infrequent, lengthy or brief — and that you’ll be back to check out all that we have in store going forward. The Two Man Game rolls on, even without my blathering, but this seemed an appropriate time nonetheless to thank you all for everything this site is, was, and will someday become. You all make The Two Man Game work, and while I know that means a lot to the TrueHoop Network as a whole, it means far more to me.
