Howard Gets Dunked
Dwight Howard :: Walter Iooss/SI
Jimmy was not feeling very good today and asked me to pinch hit for this afternoon's Hot Clicks. The NBA season begins tomorrow and Dwight Howard spent his last free weekend partying relaxinggetting baptized. Speaking of the NBA, here are a few predictions from SI's crack NBA staff.
Jamie Dixon = Hero
Props to Pitt basketball coach Jamie Dixon who helped some trapped passengers escape from their car Saturday night after an accident on I-279 in Pennsylvania.
The Oklahoma State hoops squad unveiled their new locker room -- and it belongs on MTV Cribs. I guess you can't blame them for upgrading (look at the pitiful list of NBA players the school has produced.) I don't want to get too down on Oklahoma State, though, as the school was once home to Barry Sanders (and his fan club).
