With 22 NBA teams going at it last night across the ‘States, the official website has a serious compendium of clips collected this morning. Several favorites from The Continent are featured and BiE has compiled this run of videos with which you can kill a good ten minutes of your morning this morning, easily.
There’s more and more murmuring about Lebron-to-Chicago during the upcoming free agency period these days, it seems, and two key questions arise for BiE in conjunction with such rumors: 1. How much is Deng praying he doesn’t end up with the Cleveland Shell-Of-The-Former-Cavaliers on the wrong end of a sign-and-trade? 2. Can King James and prospective teammate Yannick Noah find a way to, you know, just get along?
• The entire Official Highlight Film from the Chicago Bulls-Portland Trail Blazers game runs below; Derrick “Just as Sweet” Rose went for 33 while Deng went for 23 in the Bulls’ OT win.
• Wow, where does this Beno Udrih pass to (surprise) new Sacramento Kings acquisition Carl Landry come from, exactly?
• And *more* sweet passing as former Baskonia stalwart Luis Scola connects with Aaron Brooks for the Houston Rockets against the leadfoot San Antonio Spurs…
• A classic looky-what-I-found loose-ball recovery and follow-up dunk by Señor Baloncesto himself, Pau Gasol:
• Finally, below is the highlight collection from Gasol’s Los Angeles’ triumph over the Philadelphia 76ers, not that i’m pimping my soon-to-be back-to-back NBA champion Lakers or anything. Along with Andrew Bynum, Gasol went for a double-double with a 22/11 in L.A.
