WEEKEND BASKETBLOGGING….If you haven’t gotten enough of basketball via my intermittent blogging on the topic over the course of the season, boy, do I have good news for you: This week on Blogging Heads TV, Matt Yglesias and I discuss the Washington Wizards, the NBA playoffs, and Larry Brown (in addition to Iran, immigration, and other political matters…) The Wizards, by the way, halted their five-game losing streak today with the return of a not-quite-healthy-but-good-enough Caron Butler. The commanding win over Cleveland secured a playoff spot and further convinced me that the Wizards need the five seed so that they can face Cleveland in the first round. LeBron James is amazing, but the Wizards are 3-1 against the Cavs this year, and I like that match-up.
