Tuesday Morning Starting Five: March 24, 2009

First, I’ve been linking a lot so I can get this book done. Deadline is August. I have a lot of great interviews to post so if you see three a week it’s because I have to get these up. The first will be Professor Griff tomorrow, beat writers Gary Washburn, James Beale and Mark Spears…Duane Spyder Hughes, Phillip Hot Sauce Champion and sports agent Darren Heitner. There will be three different features upcoming on Dwyane Wade, Vince Carter and Ron Artest after speaking with them recently. Secondly, we would like to thank the Atlanta Hawks organization…namely Arthur Triche…for being the first professional team to credential The Starting Five. I’ve obviously covered hundreds of games but that’s while freelancing for other services…mad different. I must say Jerold Wells Jr.’s Hawk piece represents us well and I’m proud that’s our first work, now go get that star!

Quit playin’ young fella…damn 😉
