Weird or Wonderful? LeBron James, Anthony Davis as giraffes…

@leraffejames

There’s a new Instagram account sweeping the nation, and it’s… something.

Basically, the account LeRaffe James takes all of LeBron James’ Instagram photos and transforms them into giraffes. How do people come up with stuff like this? Also, how long does this take?!

THAT’S the power of the internet.

If you were wondering, the answer is yes: former Cat and current Laker Anthony Davis has even made a few appearances on the account. How does The Brow look in animal form?

Enes Kanter concludes 50th free basketball camp

Enes Kanter has had quite a busy summer. The former Cat spent his offseason traveling across America to host free basketball camps for children. The “tour” made stops in 25 different states and affected thousands of kids.

Kanter said his mission was to visit more towns than the “normal” NBA stops in places like New York, Los Angeles and Miami; his tour also made stops in places like Evergreen, Alabama, Anchorage, Alaska, Nampa, Idaho and Fargo, North Dakota.

“We wanted to go to places the NBA has never stepped on before,” he said. “America gave me so much. America gave me a home. I wanted to give back to not just the city I play for, I wanted to give back to all of America.”

Kanter wrapped up his summer Saturday with lucky stop No. 50 in Boston, his new city. Nearly 100 kids, ages 8-18, attended Kanter’s free three-hour camp in a local athletic center, which featured shooting drills, five-on-five competition and a question-and-answer session with the NBA player.

For his final camp, Kanter was even joined by a special guest – Tacko Fall. The big man and fellow Celtic had no problem dunking all over his teammate.

I’m sure the campers loved that. According to Kanter, that’s what this entire summer was about.

“I don’t want and I don’t need their money,” he said. “I just want them to come and have fun. To put a smile on their faces, that’s what we try to do.”
