Apologies for the relatively low number of posts this week. I’m trying to make moves, I have a hard time concentrating when it’s hot, and there’s just not that much interesting stuff happening in the basketball world right now. I’m sorry that I have not been updating you on all the latest happenings involving Baron Davis’s morbid obesity.

However, you can still check out some of my work daily at FreeDarko, where I’ve been posting the highlights of the NBA Twitter world just as I used to at The Baseline. It’s now called “Days of NBA Lives,” and you can enjoy it most every weekday. Here’s today’s post, which has a nice update from Danny Granger about eating dinner with a cat in Greece.

I’ll have more on ETO either tonight or tomorrow, depending on what happens in my life. Stay frosty.


Welcome to Earf

Welcome, dear friends, to Early Termination Option.

My name is Eric Freeman. Prior to this year, I also wrote as “Ty Keenan.” You may know me from such blogs as SportingNews.com’s now-defunct NBA blog The Baseline, FreeDarko, FanHouse, and the dearly departed Plissken at the Buzzer.

Now that The Baseline is no more and I do not have immediate employment, I have decided to start ETO as a forum for my stray thoughts about the NBA and basketball at-large. I can’t promise that this site will exist for a long period of time, which is why I gave it the title that I did. But for the time being, expect multiple posts per day featuring the same borderline-intellectual basketball analysis and overeducated humor you’ve come to expect from the Freeman brand.

This is still a work in progress, so don’t be shocked if a lot of things change in the next week or two. For instance, I am still trying to figure out how to get a site that doesn’t look like it was created by a robot, although that may never get fixed.

If you’re so inclined, please follow me on Twitter. I have a tendency to twit at length about things other than basketball, but you are sure to get in a few laffs along the way.

Check in later today for more posts. May the gods smile upon you.
