Hardwood Classic Today: Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Lakers, 1991 Western Conference Semifinals Game 2
Time/TV: 9 p.m./NBATV
1) Free agent forward Earl Clark has signed a one-year deal to play in China. He will have no opt-out clause for when the lockout ends. Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel reports Clark has been in negotiations with Zhejiang of the Chinese Basketball Association but that nothing has been signed officially. #FreeEarlClark.
2) WDBO's Scott Anez caught up with NBA Champion Darrell Armstrong.
3) Nate Drexler of MagicBasketball.net remembers Game One of the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals. Good memories.
4) Feeling a basketball jones during the lockout? A poster at RealGM provided a link to every NBA Finals game since 1980 available for download (hat tip to follower Chase, aka @cb1115).
5) Who is the Orlando Magic's biggest rival? Dan Favale of Bleacher/Report (I feel so dirty, but nothing else is going on, I swear) says it is the Boston Celtics (I say it is Miami for a variety of reasons). The Magic are the Hawks and Bobcats' biggest rival, at least.
6) Stan Van Gundy with some inspirational words for the campers at Magic Basketball Camp last week.
7) Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel invites you to play find Stan Van Gundy with actual photographic proof Stan Van Gundy once played basketball.
