Not going to lie, it felt weird looking for basketball content this week, with the amount of unrest this election has created and the overall importance of that. Oh, and we’re also still in the middle of a pandemic. However, I also find it imperative to look for ways to unplug for a minute, because mental health is extremely important, and all of this can be — and is — draining regardless of who you voted for.
And for me, that has been podcasting, exercising, and listening to and reading other basketball content. I hope that this week’s episodes of the Grizzly Bear Blues podcast network could serve as a nice stress reliever for you, as this year just doesn’t want to take the foot off the gas.
