Henry Abbott is a journalist who blogs. has given many of its journalists blogs lately. So it was a logical move for the sports behemoth to buy Abbott's TrueHoop blog, one of the best spots to keep track of the NBA, and put the longtime hoops writer (who's interviewed most of the league's players and coaches) on its full-time payroll a couple of weeks ago. Abbott does want his longtime readers to know that he's not quite "bathing in Goldschläger and eating only the choicest roe of wild sturgeon."
