Wednesday And-1 links: Iman Shumpert has a new Knicks anthem

Dec 12, 2012, 7:28 PM EST

Here is our regular 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.

• That would be Iman Shumpert‘s new Knicks anthem. Good to see he’s keeping busy during knee rehab.

Beer prices are going up at NBA arenas. Hey, those poor struggling owners have to make a buck somewhere.

Austin Rivers has struggled as a rookie, and as they note At The Hive, not in an “oh, all rookies are going to struggle” kind of way. They break it down and it’s not pretty.

Matt Bonner in a high school dunk contest. Need I say more.

Kevin Love was a great interview on TrueHoopTV.

• Ben Wallace says he is not retired and wants to play agin.

• The NBA has had 1 billion — yes, with a “B” — YouTube hits on its channel.

• Check out the decline in the number of 50 point games by players in recent years. Tom Ziller tries to figure out why.

• Everyone in Dallas sounds like the old Lakers — “Derrick Fisher really brings some intangibles to the team and the game.” I think he has brought 30.3 percent shooting and bad defense so far. But the Mavs are 4-1 in their last five and Fish will get credit for that. Deserved or not.

Hedo Turkoglu remains out indefinitely. A nation shrugs.

A great look by Tom Ziller at the divided Maloof family and what that ultimately means in Sacramento.

• A fun Q&A with the legendary Hall of Famer Bob Pettit, talking Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell and more.

Could the Miami Heat bring in Eddie House? Stranger things have happened, but not many.

• Some interesting looks at the potential design for a new Seattle arena.

• The Bobcats cut Cory Higgins. His father Rod is a Bobcats executive. Awkward.
