Incredibly powerful image.
Jalen’s suit: never forget.
The NBA Draft is tonight and if history is any indication, expect to see some eye-popping outfits from the Association’s newest players. Eighteen years ago, Michigan guard Jalen Rose wore this spiffy red pinstriped suit when he was taken with the 13th overall pick of the 1994 NBA Draft. Who will be the fashion star of tonight’s draft?

Strangely, the only part that bothers me is the $9.00 Bud Lights.
A few thoughts upon seeing Miami’s celebratory tab: 1. $12,840 just in tax. fffffuuuuuuu 2. How great would it be if it were Shane Battier who drank the 12 Bud Lights? I’m going to guess that it was Juwan Howard & Mike Miller each downing a sixer. 3. How great would it be if Spo got stuck with the tab? “But I only had a sugar free Red Bull, maaannnnnnn!”.
Just $171,937.53 or more than half of Mickell Gladness’ salary
Yup, I’m officially okay with the Heat winning the title.
This man married Marilyn Monroe. That is all.

This is phenomenal:
I don’t think of Willy as an eccentric who holds on to his 1912 Dandy’s Sunday suit and wears it in 1970, but rather as just an eccentric — where there’s no telling what he’ll do or where he ever found his get-up — except that it strangely fits him: Part of this world, part of another. A vain man who knows colors that suit him, yet, with all the oddity, has strangely good taste. Something mysterious, yet undefined.
