Friday And-1 links: Jeremy Lin has a jersey made of fruit roll-ups

Jeremy Lin fruit roll up jersey

Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points.

Jeremy Lin has a special jersey made out of fruit roll-ups. Yes, I’m serious, look at the picture.

Metta World Peace will appear on Conan O’Brien next week. He had been scheduled to appear the night the suspension came down for the elbow to James Harden‘s head, but he backed out. This is his make up.

• Some Pacers players — Danny Granger, Kyrylo Fesenko — got into an idiotic late night standoff at a club in Orlando.

Rajon Rondo with a hip-hop track? Yup.

• Gregg Popovich doesn’t heap a lot of praise on rookies, which tells you how Kawhi Leonard has played.

• How the Lakers are running a lot of pretty half pick-and-roll sets to keep Arron Afflalo off Kobe Bryant. IT’s working.

• When Andrew Bynum gets position deep on the low block, get the man the rock.

Derrick Rose is holding off on his knee surgery for a couple of weeks until all the swelling goes down.

• Andrei Kirilenko himself has now said it is “not true” that he has a deal with the Nets. Okay. I’m just saying there’s a lot of smoke for no fire.

• Carlos Delfino had sports hernia surgery Thursday, he should be out a couple of months but be ready for training camp.

• How Grant Hill bounces back from knee surgery will have more to do with his return to the Suns than anything else, according to the team president.

Baron Davis is hoping to avoid offseason back surgery. I imagine so. Do you trust him to follow through and do his rehab properly?

Grading all the Golden State Warriors players. Klay Thompson gets a B+.

• Looking at what New Jersey Nets players will be back next season.

• ESPN’s Bill Simmons had to withdraw his MVP vote for LeBron James because he had bet on the race.

Tracking all the assists John Wall could have had with more help.

• There is a disproportionate amount of 7-footers in the United States who make their living in the NBA.

• Watch Enes Kanter drop the mic. Hat tip to The Basketball Post.
