May 15 is the big day. A dog at this age would fool some people into thinking it was an adult, but those in the know would realized it still scampers about like a juvenile every time the wind changes.

Guess blogs age similarly to dogs.

Here are some of my favorite moments from the last year:

A lot of people have said nice things about TrueHoop since it started in May 2005. Having no shame, I decided to compile some of them here:

"I'm really impressed with it. My roots were in the blog world pre-ESPN and I've always had an affinity for guys who go out and do it on their own. Yours is, honestly, the best I've seen in the NBA world."

--ESPN's Chad Ford



"Been reading your site religiously...You do a very nice job. Keep it up."

--ESPN's Chris Sheridan



"I will never turn down an opportunity to praise TrueHoop."

--Deadspin's Will Leitch



"I do frequent and enjoy the hell out of your site."

--SI.com Columist Kelly Dwyer (who gave me permission to quote him here so long as I include that he has "a musky, Victor Mature-like scent.")



"How good is Abbott’s blog? Well, let’s put it this way: If you don’t read True Hoop, you can hardly consider yourself an NBA fan."

--Sam Amico of the Pro Basketball News



"One of my first stops on my daily tour of the NBA."

 --ESPN.com NBA Editor Royce Webb



"Was taking my weekly scroll through your compendium of truthiness, and happened upon the notice that you just had your first-year anniversary. Belated happy birthday to youse guys, and thanks for the great work."




"Just wanted to drop a note to tell you how great I think TrueHoop has become... a must see on a daily basis."

--Roland Beech of 82games.com



"Thoughtful, engaging news and commentary on the world of professional basketball."

--Paul M. Schwartz of Forbes.com



"TrueHoop.com is the finest NBA blog on the internet."

--Jamie Mottram, AOL's Sports Bloggers Live host and Mister Irrelevant blogger



"My close personal friends know that the very first thing I do when I awake in the morning is check out Henry Abbott’s TrueHoop. OK, that’s not entirely true. The very first thing I do is feed the dog and cats, search for some pants, check my email and Google myself to see if David Laing’s been talking shit about me again. But the 5th thing I do every morning is check out Henry Abbott’s TrueHoop."

--Can't Stop the Bleeding



"Most prolific NBA blogger can do it all: investigative reporting, media commentary, and basketball analysis."

--Jason Gurney of LowPost.net



"Spotted another typo..."

--TrueHoop commenter MaxPowar

I'll be out of town until Thursday September 8, but I am thrilled that Kurt of Forum Blue and Gold has agreed to babysit TrueHoop in my absence. E-mail him with ideas and questions.

Have a great week.

It's a great day for TrueHoop, as Forbes.com just announced that TrueHoop has been named in their Best of the Web "Blogs that Matter" lineup.

There are ten categories, ranging from art to small business. TrueHoop is one of nine sports blogs mentioned. Congratulations to SportsBlogs for being named the favorite. Four of us were named "Best of the Web" picks: Bad Jocks, Yanks Fan vs. Sox Fan, Sports Frog (who called Larry Brown "the skankiest coaching skank in NBA history" this morning), and TrueHoop. Some friends like Eric McErlain (Off Wing Opinion) were also mentioned.

To top if off, there is a very thoughtful review by Paul M. Schwartz, and I am thankful that he clearly spent some quality time getting to know TrueHoop, rather than writing a quickie review.

The best part of all: I didn't submit the site or anything. Paul found it through google, and the first I heard of it was when he e-mailed to say TrueHoop had been selected. Thanks, Paul.
