One man’s take on the Beers of the Year is also a fun look at the NBA.
The Asahi Super Dry of the NBA: Ray Allen. This beer is supremely smooth and doesn’t waste energy doing anything else but trying to fill up the hole
The Coopers Pale Ale of the NBA: Paul Pierce. Not just because of the obvious Coopers/Celtics Green connection, but because just like the Pale Ale, Pierce delivers every single time even when you think it’s finished. It may not be as explosive as its twin Coopers Red (Kevin Garnett) but late in the game/slab you’ll still be knocking down those Greens while the Red goes to shit. Coopers Pale Ale is The Truth of all brews.
Also out there: Scott Souza look s at the development of JR Giddens… and how Gabe Pruitt is helping.
I talked with Bill, and at first he was like, “No, I don’t want to go, and this and that,” Pruitt said. “But once he got down there he saw it was not too bad, and he had a chance to play. After J.R. had 34 in a game [Dec. 1] I called him up afterward. He was enjoying it because he was playing. He was making the most of it.
