This week the class of NBA rookies has been going through their official NBA indoctrination — the league meetings telling them to manage their money, watch out for relatives trying to take their money, watch out for the groupies that will come at them. You know, all the rules they will ignore over the next few years. All the lessons they will learn the hard way.

And it’s also rookie photo day on Tuesday.

This year, the theme is outdoors. Not totally, but some of the shots. And I love these.

To the left is Quincy Acy of the Raptors, who you have to love just for that shot. Below is Jared Sullinger of the Celtics. You get the idea.

    Why is Dee Brown’s #7 not retired from the Celtics?

      Because he’s Dee Brown?

    is anybody else’s picture of Quincy Acy on the right? I’d like to give Kurt the benefit of the doubt that he knows his left from his right, but it’s not showing that on my computer screen…

    A Dee Brown reference! Yes!
