Being thorough as we are wont to do here at WTLC, let's take a look at some alternate covers.

Sports Illustrated has gone with Lebron James for this week's cover and, sadly, it did not result in an Indiana win last night. I am disappointed for the short term, but the possibility and probability of a Spurs vs. Heat finals is pretty intriguing. Would it be cool to see Tim Duncan, calm and reserved for the vast majority of his career, get fed up with Chris Andersen's nonsense and straight up throat punch him? Yes. Very much yes. It's not so much that I dislike the Heat. It's more reasonable than that. Like most other people, it's just more fun to pull for the underdog. Be that as it may, and being thorough as we are wont to do here at WTLC, let's take a look at some alternate covers.

Alternate #1: Karl Malone is back with the Jazz; denim.

Alternate #2: The whooping of the tricks.

Alternate #3: The Spurs are not boring and Tim Duncan is weird.

Alternate #4: The unique ubiquity of Joey Crawford and is Pete Bell the next Rutgers AD? A brief article excerpt: "Joey Crawford sits alone in an ill lit room with Green Acres playing on a bruised and battered flat screen. Du Hast is faintly playing, but it is muffled by the sound of Crawford. He is cursing in fluent French and throwing empty bottles of Jameson at an Arnold Ziffle that isn't there. After a moment to pause and reflect, Crawford lifts his head. Someone is getting ejected tonight."

In a mildly related but completely relevant note, Moore and the other communities affected by the May 19 and 20 tornados still need your help. Stop by http://www.ok.gov/okstrong to see how you can help. Nick Collison is here to provide a visual of what helping may look like.
