Also, our existing Basketball-Reference blog rss feed will be redirected to the new site's feed, so you won't need to change a thing on your end.

Some Blog Stats for the Road

1st November 2011

By now, you've probably seen Sean's post about the BBR Blog (if not, go read it first)... We had a great run here (going back to the start of the 2008-09 season), and while it's unfortunate that we have to shut the blog down, I'm really proud of the work we did over the past 3 seasons.

So, in that spirit, I'd like to say thanks and give you some final stats about the blog:

BBR Blog Runs out the Clock

1st November 2011

One of the tough parts of running a business is deciding when to put more effort into something and when to not. We know we've been pretty silent here since the end of the season, and after a lot of internal debate, we've decided to stop posting editorial content on the BBR blog.

This obviously has nothing to do with the quality of the content produced by lead writer, Neil Paine. His posts were phenomenal, and I know many readers looked forward to them every week. A big thanks to Neil for making this such a vital place for basketball discussion and analysis. As a small company, focus is vital for our success, and we are choosing to focus our energy on pumping out as much statistical basketball data as possible and that means cutting back in other areas.

None of the existing content is going to go away. We'll keep it up here for as long as the site is open (which we intend to be a very long time). If you would like to contact Neil, he's available at np@sports-reference.com.

Thank you most of all for your patronage.
