Wednesday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Sydney Maler: Nate Robinson Loves Israel

Tuesday March 22nd, 2016

Take Him, Nate

Nate Robinson is playing hoops in Israel and already making friends (as well as hitting ridiculous shots). Robinson was being interviewed in a park when a random dude came up to him on a bicycle and challenged him to a game of 1-on-1. The random dude turned out to be former pro player Raz Nisim Cohen, who talks trash like a champ and wants to play Robinson for money. I don't know much about life, but I'd bet two years' salary that these two somehow end up playing 1-on-1 in the next 30 days.

Coach of the Year

Kansas’s Bill Self, Villanova’s Jay Wright, Indiana's Tom Crean and Xavier's Chris Mack may be finalists for this year's Naismith Coach of the Year Award, but my vote goes to Whitman College assistant coach Stephen Garnett and his custom handshakes for each player.

Lovely Lady of the Day

Sydney Maler is (according to her website) "an avid beach bum who would always rather be in a bikini, bare foot with wild, unruly hair." Seems like good qualifications to be today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).
