Gladwell on Basketball (and defeating Goliath)

I always enjoy Malcolm Gladwell’s topics, and his latest New Yorker article “How David Beats Goliath” is no exception.

I think it also explains why I don’t find basketball as interesting as say hockey. Only half the time is spent doing something interesting — the game is played on about 48 feet of a 94 foot court.

A very interesting article. We always hear about David vs. Goliath, but I must admit, I always thought of it as a offhand phrase. I love reading about how the underdog wins when they exploit the weaknesses of their opponent - especially with crazy approaches! Thanks for the link. I also grabbed Gladwell's other New Yorker article.
