NBA Daily Links: Slow Sunday Edition

Good morning, Hardwood Houdini readers!

Daily links coming at ya!!!! Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

I dislike weekends like this, in which the Boston Celtics have both Saturday and Sunday off.  Friday night games are great, but I enjoy games on Sunday since there’s an awful lot of garbage NFL games on by this point in the season.  I’d much rather be watching Celtics basketball  than watch the Buffalo Bills play the Jacksonville Jaguars, two teams who were eliminated from the playoffs five seasons ago.

Ah well; at least I have today’s links!

Anyone need an aging Spaniard to boost their playoff hopes?  The Lakers are considering their options with Pau Gasol, again.  [ESPN]

Ah, Twitter!  What did we ever do without it?  Surely, we couldn’t have enjoyed this magical exchange between Roy Hibbert and Greg Monroe.  [Dime]   Great stuff.

Finally: here’s a look at Avery Bradley’s success this season, and whether Jordan Crawford is playing the role of Rajon Rondo.  [Masslive.com]  Hey – I like Crawford – but he’s no Rajon Rondo.

Have a good Sunday, everyone!
