For good measure, it’s Ramel Bradley sitting on a basketball hoop.
Gooooooooood Morning KSR! I’m going to be your tour guide today as we navigate our way through one of the slowest news portions of the year. The draft is over, the Decision is done, Football has yet to begin, and it’s a beautiful day to be outside. If you’re sitting around refreshing KSR, stop and enjoy the summer. When you get back, all the news will be wrapped up in a pretty bow for you.
Without further ado, some morning links for my homies.
-In the fallout of LeBronukka, Calipari is still finding his way into the news cylce. In a five point fallout column, Ian Thomsen mentions that Cal was one of the few people able to recruit LeBron, but no GM’s were willing to hand over control to the big man. I find it hard to believe that any NBA GM, who by nature are incredibly stupid, would be scared to hand the reigns over to Cal. I think it’s more likely that the timing wasn’t right.
-Speaking of LeBron, you want to know who Michael Jordan thinks is better?
-Again, on the story of the King, perhaps my favorite new twitter account is LebronJamesEgo. Bringing you gems like this… “CHRIS BOSH ASKED ME TO PUT SUN BLOCK ON HIS BACK AND AT FIRST I WAS LIKE NAH MAN, BUT THEN I THOUGHT I’M LEBRON THE SUN BLOCK KING SO I DID.” It’s a pretty good account to add to your feed.
-Sick of LeBron? Me too. To send the lady’s aflutter, here’s the article on John Walls tight groin, and how excited Yi is to play with him. For some reason, I doubt the excitement is mutual.
-I posted this on the site yesterday, but if you’re looking for the NBA Summer League schedule, you can find it in full on NBA.com.
-A little more on the Melvin Turpin tragedy, as the LHL reports that Turpins family was baffled by the ruling of suicide. A lot has been written about this already, but it is still a very sad thing to see.
So go outside, have a fun day, and come back and see me when you get done. Just please… tell outside I miss her.
