I thought it was a nice piece overall, too, but this bit near the beginning annoyed me in the way I usually get annoyed when I read something Hardin writes: "Coaches and sportswriters, for the most part, coexist on a parallel plane from reality. They pretend we don't exist, and we pretend they understand things like parallel planes." First he uses the barely sensible phrase, "coexist on a parallel plane from reality," then he takes off on that to make a joke about how smart sports writers are and how stupid basketball coaches are. Maybe it's just me, but it seems to me Hardin does that kind of thing frequently. The anecdote was nice, though.
