Notes and Errata: September 7th, 2010

September 7th, 2010 by John Krolik


-Kevin Durant’s assist totals have remained pretty low throughout these FIBA games. OKC’s offense actually wasn’t all that good last year, and Durant’s low assist ratio was a reason why — should we be concerned?

-I say this as somebody who follows maybe 3 NBA players on twitter — Mo Williams’ twitter is kind of delightful. There’s something about posting a picture of baking chicken with the caption “yup” that I just find endearing.


-Saw an advance screening of “Jack Goes Boating.” Spoiler alert: Jack goes boating. In all seriousness, it’s a pretty decent movie — it’s adapted from a play, and you can tell, but there are worse things. Funny, weird, sweet at times. Amy Ryan continues to prove she can be a convincing romantic partner for any character imaginable. It’s Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s directorial debut and adapted from a play, so naturally it’s overdirected at times, but I didn’t really mind at all.

-Are there people who don’t like Boise State? I ask this as someone who doesn’t really get college football at all, despite the fact I go to USC and never miss a game. And got told not to make the “all proceeds go to Joe McKnight’s car payments joke” at a football-themed fundraising raffle the other day. I’m a self-loathing USC student. I swear.

-Good night, and good Joe Smith rap single:

I miss Joe Smith.
