What It’s Like Blogging With Gilbert

Posted by JakeTheSnake on April 18th, 2008 in Did You Know

If you’re a diehard NBA fan, you probably know Dave McMenamin as the writer behind NBA.com’s Rookie Rankings. Diehard Gilbert fans also know Dave as the person responsible for making his blog happen. The thoughts are pure Gilbert, but Dave is the one who transcribes his thoughts and makes it happen when you see his blog. In an interview with Green Bandwagon, Dave talked about what it’s like working with Gil on his blog:

Green Bandwagon: What is the Gilbert Arenas experience like?

Dave McMenamin: Your question reminds me of that Nike commercial, “The Michael Vick Experience”, where people were strapped into a rollercoaster-style seat suspended from a track hovering over a football field and shot off on a round-about route eluding would-be tacklers. If “The Gilbert Arenas Experience” was a ride, sadly it would just involve a lot of text messages that just say “Blog” blowing up your phone as late as midnight and as early as 7 a.m., copious Google searches of the words “Gilbert Arenas” to see what bloggers are writing about him to gather material for the next time you talk to him and painfully editing out a lot of really funny stuff he blogs about that are too inappropriate for NBA.com. But really, it’s awesome.
