Video: Durant, Harden take Kate Upton to work for a day


You would think “Take a Supermodel to Work Day” would be pretty much the perfect day (way better than taking your 7-year-old daughter to work), especially with Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover model Kate Upton, but…

Fun video from the folks at Skullcandy, working with Kevin Durant and James Harden. Plus, Upton in a bikini.

Thanks to SLAM for finding this.

And for the record, as a guy who works from home with an  7-year-old daughter, when every day is take your daughter to work day it comes with challenges.

Dwight Howard played through torn MCL and meniscus in playoffs

Dwight Howard hasn’t exactly been healthy in recent years. He missed half of last season with various injuries, including a two-month stretch from January to March after undergoing a knee procedure. On Thursday, he told a Houston radio station that the knee problems continued after that, and he had torn ligaments and cartilage during the Rockets’ Western Conference Finals series against the Warriors:

It’s a little alarming that we didn’t hear about this until now. Sometimes these injuries can heal without surgery, but Howard can become a free agent next summer, so you would think he would want to get any lingering issues addressed ahead of time. Considering his age (he’ll be 30 in December) and his injury history, this isn’t a great sign. A healthy Howard is the difference between the Rockets being a legitimate title contender and an als0-ran, so hopefully these problems are behind him and he can stay healthy this season.

On Tuesday night, Jazz big man Trevor Booker was ejected from a preseason game against the Lakers for taking a swing at Roy Hibbert during a scrap.

Now, Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Booker will be suspended one game for the hit, meaning he’ll miss the Jazz’ October 28 season opener against the Pistons:

Considering he was already ejected, a one-game suspension seems about right.
