Recommended Reading: The Best Of The Worst
Recommended Reading is a daily (occasional) rundown of truly superb NBA related literature, pictures, and videos. Some is brand new, others are timeless. Enjoy!
Hardwood Hype: If our views on accomplishments in sports were a bit more republican, these players would get more credit for all that personal glory they attained—at their team’s cost.
Complex: Tell me this isn’t the face of a man worth $10 million.
Grantland: Jonathan Abrams tells the NBA it should learn from its mistakes. The NBA promptly ignores him, making everyone sadder than sad.
Washington Post: In the aftermath of Kevin Durant’s 66 at Rucker, Nick Young dropped 60 of his own in a recent Drew League game. Included nugget of info from Michael Lee’s story:
Young is getting some exposure this week, with him getting a fashion spread in Edge Magazine, where Young bragged about being the “best dressed man in the NBA” while wearing a questionable leopard print tank top with orange and blue stripes.
Hardwood Paroxysm: Kinda, sorta jealous I didn’t come up with this story concept first. Great work by Danny Chau.
The Point Forward: Zach Lowe has the unenviable task of compiling a “Top 100 Players in the NBA” list. So far he’s on 71-80. Let ridiculous debates rage on!
