NBA Daily Links: Saturday, February 1, 2014


Welcome to the weekend, and to the month of February, everyone!

The NBA has given the Boston Celtics a pretty easy-to-manage schedule for the month of February.  The All-Star Break helps every team, of course, but it will be interesting to watch Rajon Rondo improve as the Celtics navigate the second half of their season.

You know something that I need to improve at?  Getting you your daily dose of NBA links!  I have missed a few days, so time’s a wastin’!  Onto the links!

There were eight games in the NBA last night.  See why Kevin Durant’s impressive streak of scoring 30+ in a game ended, in addition to all of the other stories.  [NBA.com]

I know it’s no longer morning, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy today’s Morning Shootaround.  [NBA]

The transition is complete: for the first time in 30 year’s, a changing of the guard has occurred. [ESPN]

I know a lot of fans around the league want their teams to tank, in order to land a juicy pick in the draft.  However, as the Cleveland Cavaliers are learning this season, being a good college player doesn’t always add up to a successful NBA career. [Sports Illustrated]

Sometimes I just shake my head at sports writers.  Take, for example, this piece, in which the writer re-does the 2013 NBA draft based on the first half of this season.  [Sports Illustrated]   Seriously – with this much hindsight at your disposal, everyone can look like a genius.  What’s the point of that?!?

The Indiana Pacers have rolled the dice and signed Andre Bynum to a contract through the end of this season.  [Bleacher Report]  Apparently, this franchise completely IGNORES hindsight!

Finally, your Boston Celtics link of the day gets you caught up on who is in this weekend, and who may be out.  [Masslive.com]

Enjoy!
