The NBA season kicks off TOMORROW. What better way to celebrate than with some absurd trivia about our favorite game?

I’ve got ten questions below about teams, players, and various basketball props. They’re all pretty silly, but that’s how trivia should be, right?

Click the image below to take the quiz and then let me know how you do. Good luck!

The Crisp Bounce Pass Holiday Corner

Perhaps you’re like me and didn’t quite realize the holiday season is upon us. And maybe, also like me, you’re scrambling for some last-minute gift ideas.

Well, I’ve got you covered. For the rest of the month, this section will provide a pair of hoops-themed gift ideas for your enjoyment.

Grab them as a gift for someone else or snag ’em for yourself. And if you have any must-have suggestions, send them my way!

Society6 Basketball Gifts

Society6 is a fantastic place to pick up things like phone or pillow cases, wall art, and other fun decor. It lets people know you have STYLE, and that’s important.

I once got a phone cover of Allen Iverson’s famous “step over Tyronn Lue” and then went to a conference in Philadelphia. I was a legend for 48 hours, which is a great feeling and a short enough time of legendary status so as not to feel cumbersome.

In any case, the link above goes to all things basketball. But my pick is this rendering of Stanley from The Office dribbling a basketball. It’s glorious.

Two Cuddly Dachshunds Gear

Two Cuddly Dachshunds Hoodies

Okay, this gift technically doesn’t feature any sort of basketball action on it. However, the owner of this shop, Stacy Padula, is releasing a series of books with NBA coach Brett Gunning, so it’s KIND of a basketball gift.

Plus, dachshunds rock. I’ve got two halvsies myself (a chihuahua dachshund mix and a Jack Russell terrier and dachshund mix) and have dogsat for a full dachshund. They’re great cuddlebugs, protective, and have those cute lil’ bodies that sometimes waddle when they walk. All fabulous qualities to have.

Stacy’s shop features renditions of her pups, Baxter and Briley, and they are certainly eager for some belly rubs. Pick up some gear and be stylish as all getup.

That’s all ’til next time. Thanks for reading!
