Of Studs, Signees, Scribes and Showbiz

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- Mighty thankful for the hoopful diversion that TBT is providing in this long, hot summer of our discontent. Without baseball and the up-in-the-air status of college and pro football, the NBA and even our beloved college hoops, seeing the former Flyers + 2 in the Final Four for $1 million is a welcome digression.

Win or lose, life goes on and “FTS” is here to provide some short-term succor, with updates on the matters of studs, signees, scribes and showbiz.

Hit it!

Studs

When it comes to Flyer hoops, there is Obi One stud. His Obiness has been a busy boy, as he patiently awaits the NBA draft, now scheduled for sometime in the next millennium.

NBADraft.net provides us with this Situational Analysis: Obi Toppin:

You’ve got the same Feinstein link in there twice. Can you fix that? Am I the only one to notice? Or is it my operator error?
