But we noticed as Shved was putting up 10 points in the fourth quarter for Minnesota to lead their 22-point comeback win over the Nets Monday that he had a new, shorter look going on.
What gives? Is that what caused the comeback?
We don’t know about the second part of that, but we know you can thank Andrei Kirilenko and Nikola Pekovic for the sheering. That’s what Pekovic told Fox Sports North after the win (hat tip to The Basketball Jones).
“You think because of that we win?” Pekovic asked. “Me and AK, we make him to cut his hair. Now he look like a man.”
If you hadn’t seen Shved precut, he went with the Lou Amundson pulled back look. Which is apparently unmanly for men from Russia or former Soviet Bloc countries. Now he has a cut that looks like half the guys at the University of Minnesota. Which I guess is manly.
But if Non… er, Pekovic tells you to get a haircut — or pretty much anything else — you do it. Smart move, rookie.

It was his best highlight on Sunday

He’s dropped weight and is playing well. Maybe not No. 1 pick well, but like a guy who can contribute at the NBA level.

McDermott and Tony Snell had a very good shooting game for the Bulls.

Randle signed his deal just 20 minutes before tip-off, but he was able to scramble a bit to make it into the starting lineup.

Dallas has had a very nice offseason.
Jul 13, 2014, 6:34 PM EDT
A good signing to maintain roster continuity, considering Chalmers has been Miami’s starting point guard for the past three seasons.
Jul 13, 2014, 6:05 PM EDT
In a wide open East, the Nets roster looks like one that could do some damage. If it can stay healthy.

Exum’s performance didn’t stuff the stat sheet, but was extremely exciting nonetheless.

Jul 13, 2014, 2:46 PM EDT
Remember he reportedly turned down three years, $30 million from Bulls.

Would Stephenson take more money over two years, say $20 million over two, or does he want the security of a longer deal.
Jul 13, 2014, 1:30 PM EDT
Love would give Dan Gilbert his own big three. Would Wiggins?
Jul 13, 2014, 12:36 PM EDT
This is where he most wanted to be (and they could pay the most, which doesn’t hurt).
