"For a long time, Orlando Pinstriped Post (nee Third Quarter Collapse) was one of the best-kept secrets in the NBA blogosphere. The secret got out for good once the Magic made their [NBA Finals] run last year"

Ben Golliver, Blazersedge, January 15th, 2010

"[T]he Orlando Magic's smartest website [...]"

Mike Fisher, DallasBasketball.com, July 3rd, 2009

"These are facts, parsed through a screen full of smarts, tarted up with a bit of writing talent, and served on a properly-decorated plate full of awesome. This is analysis. This is what you should be demanding from your cable TV, instead of nonsense from Chris Webber, Kenny Smith, Jon Barry, and Michael Wilbon."

Kelly Dwyer, Yahoo! Sports, May 14th, 2009

"Third Quarter Collapse is one of the top NBA blogs in existence."

Matt Watson, Detroit Bad Boys, May 3rd, 2008

"There are times when we feel like Third Quarter Collapse is the Woody Allen of the NBA Blogosphere. Extremely talented. Very funny. Brilliantly thorough. And completely neurotic and self-examining to a degree that cannot be good for him but is wonderful for the rest of us."

Matt Moore, Hardwood Paroxysm, February 8th, 2008
