Basketball Jones: New shirt ideas for Russell Westbrook. May I suggest one with his red glasses on it? You know, to match his red glasses. It’ll be funny because the shirt will have as many lenses as the actual glasses: none.
Eight Points, Nine Seconds: Should Indiana sell high on the 22-year-old Paul George? Good thing Larry Bird is the Executive of the Year, ’cause that’s a tough one. I do think it’ll be difficult for George to reach his ceiling (however high it may be) playing alongside Danny Granger, simply because I think he’s a natural small forward.
Yahoo!: LeBron’s game log. Take a look at those last four games… do a little creative math… compare the numbers to a bench warmer’s season totals. F@cking incredible.
Youtube: I’m on the west side of Chicago, lookin’ for a bussdown, make me put my two arms up, touchdown!
Bucksketball: Scott Skiles will probably be coaching the Milwaukee Bucks next season, but if he isn’t, the Magic just may have found their new grumpy guy. If that doesn’t work out they ought to just re-hire Brian Hill for a third tenure.
CSNNE: Doc Rivers believes his technical foul from game one is “the worst [he's] ever had.“ I agree, Doc. That call sucked almost as much as your team did.
USA Today: Kyle Lowry is no longer interested in playing for Kevin McHale, and if I’m the Rockets I really don’t care, ’cause I prefer Goran Dragic anyway. Remember, Goran had that team rolling in March (I think it was March, right?). Things got ugly when Lowry came back and the two of them were forced to share the reigns. As their season went down the tubes it became clear that Houston would have to make a choice, and I think this just makes that choice easier.
Statesman.com: Stephen Jackson is second only to Ivan Johnson in the field of awesome quote making. For example: “I love being nasty, especially on the court. That’s my name. Stephen Nasty Jackson.”
Sportando: Stephon Marbury not wanting to return to the NBA is old, irrelevant news. However, he’s just offered us a new, interesting explanation which cites the NBA’s collective lack of feelings.
InsideHoops: I can’t come up with anything good for the tenth spot, so here’s a little snippet about Von Wafer being waived by the Magic. Did you know Von’s real name is Vakeaton Quamar Wafer? Now you do.
