The SI cover story on the Thunder that freelantz brought up yesterday. Pretty good, and always nice for the team to see some national coverage and get a little notoriety. I wish people would stop acting like there's absolutely nothing to do in Oklahoma City, though; growing up in OKC I know that's not true. The choice of players for the cover is interesting as several people have pointed out. I too thought Westbrook was seeing enough recent attention to make it on there, but for whatever reason, Nenad and Thabo accompany KD and that's rad too.
Athletics Propulsion Labs (APL) basketball shoes have been banned by the NBA because they apparently give the wearer a higher vertical and an unfair advantage. I only have one question. As a white man, will I now be able to jump? Actually one more question, do I want to spend $300 on them? Probably not.
