USC professor Todd Boyd joins ESPN.com

Dr. Todd Boyd, professor of critical studies at the USC School of Cinematic Arts (and hard-core Detroit Pistons fan), makes his "Page 2" columnist debut at ESPN.com today. Boyd's first column for the Worldwide Leader concerns the the firing of Don Imus after his derogatory comments regarding the Rutgers University women's basketball team. The bio at the end of the column notes that Boyd has a forthcoming book entitled "The Notorious Ph.D.'s Guide to the Super Fly '70s." Also, here's an interview I did with Boyd back in 2003, for the Amateur Athletic Foundation's "SportsLetter," upon the publication of his book "Young, Black, Rich and Famous: The Rise of the NBA, the Hip Hop Invasion, and the Transformation of American Culture."
