ESPN's Top 25 Under 25

Insider Only. This is a refreshing list and yes, Kyrie does rank in the top ten. It's very worth checking out if you are able. Spoiler alert: there is some backup to my screams of Love > Griffin. The rest of you will see it soon enough!

Analyzing the Anomalous: Anderson Varejao vs. Boston

+

I was sent this link by blogger Michael Pina tonight. In his Shaky Ankles blog he takes a look at some interesting NBA happenings. I just looked over his site and he's got a wide knowledge of the league so here are his thoughts on Varejao last night. It's a very intelligent read.

Luke Harangody recalled from Canton

10

He played in three games for the Charge and played decently. With Boobie Gibson and Anthony Parker out for now he'll provide cover on the wing. Whatever.

Dwight Howard open to Chicago move

2

This would actually scare me if it happened. Him going to Dallas, the Lakers or the Nets wouldn't really strike fear in me with the current squads they have. If the Bulls could get him while hanging onto Luol Deng that would be a coup. They'd likely need to get a third team involved if this happened as Chicago has few young, cheap assets to entice Orlando.

Kyrie leads Grantland's Rookie Rankings

+

[Editor's note: FP'd Sebestain Pruiti at Grantland has posted rookie rankings throughout the season and Kyrie Irving has moved to first place this week. I had never read his work before it appeared on Grantland but it seems to be very well done. He uses advanced metrics to analyze players and gives pictorial evidence and detailed breakdowns in his rankings. Tristan Thompson was in the top 10 earlier this season but has fallen to just outside the rankings now as other players have stepped up.

Z is back!!

Zydrunas Ilgauskas has been hired as an assistant to Chris Grant.

He's not quite John Hollinger, but I absolutely love the basketball writing Pruiti does for Grantland. Check out his very detailed list with video clips featuring two Cavaliers. [Ed. note: FP'd]

I saw this during the game and figured I should try and get more people to vote.
