The Great Basketball Whisperer // Nightlands’ Dave Hartley Writes Sports Column for WXPN

Dave Hartley is a man of many things. You’ve come to know him as the bassist in The War On Drugs and leader of Nightlands – a gentle giant and sci-fi fanatic. Today, we recognize him as the great basketball whisperer. Perhaps we gave you a preview of this when we highlighted Dave’s work for IMPOSE. We are only solidifying his love for the game now. WXPN just announced Dave will head up their new sports column, Top Of The Key. Don’t believe us? Check out that awesome photo of Dave strong arming Baron Davis. GO DAVE!

To put it bluntly, Hartley is a basketball freak with a encyclopedic knowledge of the game.” – WXPN
(you better believe it)

Back to the point. Dave’s first column is now up for your reading pleasure. He so kindly spells out why Andrew Bynum’s injury is not an end-all for the 76er’s. Read the column HERE.
