As of about eight and one-half hours from now, it will be December. Black Friday is over. The lines at your local Wal Mart no longer resemble the Rajon Rondo/Kris Humphries kerfluffle* under the basket at TD Bank Garden.
It is time. Time for shopping.
Should you need some gift ideas for the basketball fans on your list, look no further. Knicks fans would love either of Alan Hahn's new books about the orange-and-blue. Players of any skill level can use shooting gear from Point 3 or a nice new set of kicks. And for the nostalgic, Hoosiers has been re-released on Blu-Ray - because who doesn't want to see Dennis Hopper in high-definition?
* Sorry, I grew up watching the Knicks and Bulls and Heat and Pistons. I can't bring myself to call that mess a fight.
