A product of these Times-- LA and NY. Now at the WWL's I write letters that become words that become stories.

The Quiet Man " — Paul Millsap wasn't giving an inch when most defenders would have preferred to keep their distance. He marched right into a mismatch - guarding LeBron James in the second half of a tight Game 1 in the Eastern Conference finals. But Millsap didn't just guard James.

Poster Child " — Timofey Mozgov somehow crammed all 7 feet and 1 inch of himself into a booth tucked away in the corner of a Boston hotel. His knees nearly poked out to the opposite end of the table. These NBA playoffs, the first in which he's received extensive minutes, have been just as tight.

The Best (Pickup) Game at All-Star Weekend — I'm from Los Angeles, and lately, I've been wanting to move back. I'd be closer to my family - and Grantland headquarters. Also, I'd get my pickup basketball game back. They call it "noonball" at USC, my alma mater. I've played ever since my sophomore year, about a decade ago.

Josh Smith, From Deep — From the stands, Pete Smith can still hear people complain about his son's play. He has to restrain himself from responding. He detests the critical comments, the jabs from people who've never played the game at an elite level. They don't know how hard it can be.

1990s Orlando Magic Oral History — "Our owner, Rich DeVos, said, 'Why not us? Why not now?' Everybody was saying we're too young to win a championship. We hadn't suffered enough. Little did we know, we would be suffering by the end." -Tree Rollins They were destined for greatness.

Five funnier parodies of Silicon Valley culture than HBO’s “Silicon Valley” — Tonight is the Season 2 premiere of HBO's "Silicon Valley". A lot of people in Silicon Valley seem to like this show. I am not one of them. I probably watched last season's episodes only to come into work the next morning and complain about the show to my colleagues at Nuzzel.

The Fastest Mouth in the West — Draymond Green had just finished his stellar career at Michigan State the last time he shared a court with his aunt. Annette Babers, a former basketball star for MSU's women's team, was one of Green's first mentors in the sport. She had told Green he could win every game - except when he played against her.

After the Crash " — The boy needed a nudge from his mother. "Tell everybody where Daddy is," Kendall Phills instructed her 3-year-old son. "Daddy is in heaven with the angels," Bobby Phills III told several hundred mourners at Charlotte's Central Church of God before returning to the crowd and embracing his year-old sister, Kerstie.

Nuzzel Custom Feeds and the Future of Online News — Nuzzel's current app and website focus on showing the top news stories that your friends have shared. (We also have a friends of friends feed, and you can browse other people's Nuzzel feeds). People love using Nuzzel this way, both in San Francisco and around the world.

Nuzzel Around The World — Some of the journalists or Silicon Valley technology investors who love Nuzzel seem to have the impression that Nuzzel is mostly popular in New York or San Francisco. In reality, although Nuzzel is still a small and young company, we have users all over the world.
