Just because Brooklyn Balling will be a little slower over the next few weeks doesn't mean that the site won't pick up running in early-to-mid August
I leave for sleepaway camp tomorrow (for those unfamiliar, it's a tradition common among Northeastern Jewish teenagers), meaning that my internet access (and thusly, Twitter access) will be lessened and more infrequent over the next seven or so weeks until I return, around August 12th.
Due to this, Brooklyn Balling will be mainly dormant until then as the NBA Draft comes and goes and free agency kicks into high gear.

Rogers was a candidate to join Jeff Hornacek's staff with the Phoenix Suns, but withdrew his name from consideration on Monday.
Seeing as how he has zero coaching experience, this is probably a good idea. New Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd is reportedly going to get a jump start on his new job and coach the Nets in the Orlando Summer League. “I think it’s the best thing to get right into it,” Kidd said [...]
Even though Avery Johnson has been out of coaching since he was fired by the Brooklyn Nets earlier this season, he looks like he’s doing just fine, judging by this home.
The former NBA point guard for most notably the San Antonio Spurs, though, has decided that it’s time to relocate, and he has put his mansion on the market, for a mere $8.9 million.
