Friday And-1 links: Wade’s pink pants were… interesting

13 Comments

Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points.

• Dwyane Wade wore pink pants to the game on Friday. Yea… not working for me. The best line came from LeBron James: “You look like Eddie Murphy in the ’80s.”

• If you read one post today, it should be Kevin Arnovitz on the brilliance of Tim Duncan.

The history of the Celtics and Sixers in Game 7s. Larry Bird ain’t walking through that door, Boston.

• Whoever wins Game 7, here is a look at the Eastern Conference finals schedule, which starts Monday in Miami.

• What should the Bulls do this offseason, a roundtable discussion.

• The Wizards have a huge to-do list this summer.

• Those Wizards have started their draft workouts, looking at guys including Ohio State’s William Buford.

Some speculation the Lakers might go after Al Harrington.

• Chris Bosh is still out indefinitely. If LeBron James and Dwyane Wade continue to play like they did the last couple games the Heat can make the NBA finals still, but they are not beating the Spurs or Thunder right now.

• Vanderbilt’s John Jenkins might be the best pure shooter in this draft. Actually, not might.

• Looking for a draft sleeper? Try Syracuse guard Dion Waiters.

• Jeff Van Gundy is no fan of Magic CEO Alex Martins.

• Warriors assistant Mike Malone would love to get a shot at the Trail Blazers job. That’s a good job for sure, but they need a GM first.
