Hello, friends! I can't even really remember the last time we did an RTOE. So, here one is. We've got Derek, Jordan, Ian, Eric, Robby, Andrew, and Raffers on the case. Enjoy. - Ed.

Here's a new feature we're trying out at the Ol' Paroxysm. It's called Fantasy Fiction. One writer, Kyle Soppe, gives you a fantasy basketball update for the week--who's
Hardwood Paroxysm's deep and versatile crew of writers previews the upcoming NBA season in the most HP way imaginable: a 221-page opus featuring three sections on each of the 90 teams, seven additional long form articles, eight roundtable discussions, nine original pieces of art, and all the witty jokes and puns your heart can handle.

Here’s Dylan Murphy writing about the NBA D-League referee tryouts:
Tucked away in a second-floor conference room are 27 males and two females, all of whom forked over $150 to be here at Basketball City on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Except they’re not players, and this isn’t quite an open tryout. These men and women are referees, and were selected after an online application process at nbaofficials.com to vet their officiating experience. Still, they are unknowns.
I highly recommend reading the full piece over at Sports on Earth. Dylan wrote and tweaked and edited it for a long time, and the final product is really fantastic.
