Friday And-1 Links: Kareem still not good at “Jeopardy”

May 18, 2012, 1:40 PM EST

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.

• Kareem Abdul-Jabbar went back on a charity/celebrity Jeopardy event (after his classic flub the first time) and still, when he misses, he misses funny.

• In case you never saw Kareem’s first Jeopardy flub, follow this link.

• There are some very high risk/high reward guys in this year’s NBA draft. The exact guys that three years from now you will say “How did you miss him?” or “Why did you take him, he’s terrible?” Guys that get GMs fired.

• Along those same lines, here are the safest picks in the draft, according to Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated.

• The Clippers Nick Young has put off having a root canal to keep playing in the series against the Spurs. He may not have to wait that long after all.

LaMarcus Aldridge is now a week after hip surgery and tweeted he should be walking again in another week.

• If you can’t get enough of the Lakers final possession against the Thunder, here is a great breakdown.

• The Lakers Pau Gasol has won the 2012 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award due to his work on behalf of UNICEF and other medical groups.

    Seriously? You lead off with a story about Kareem making an error and you get the word “Jeopardy” wrong in the headline?

    Try spelling JEOPARDY correctly.
