Tuesday And-1 Links: Kevin Garnett doing yoga. He’s centered.

Feb 19, 2013, 7:11 PM EDT

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.

• We open with Kevin Garnett doing yoga.

• Great stuff from before the break — 60 hours with the Clippers on the road. I really enjoyed the read.

Why wouldn’t NBA players use PEDs?

• The Lakers are still trying to figure out their offensive system. The Clippers system is Chris Paul.

• What are the odds the Lakers make the playoffs? Well, at Bovada, the odds are Yes: -150; No +110. Meaning the public is still mostly betting yes.

Jared Sullinger talks about his back surgery.

Great story about how the Trail Blazers use advanced stats extensively (behind ESPN’s pay wall).

• Before the All-Star break, the San Antonio Spurs had more success guarding Kyrie Irving than anyone. Here’s a good breakdown of how.

• After missing five games before the break with a quad injury, Andrei Kirilenko will play Wednesday for the Timberwolves vs. the 76ers.

• NBA All-Stars try to describe James Harden‘s beard.

• During All-Star weekend, James White went to a park and played some pickup with kids.

Landry Fields got engaged to a model in a creative way. And that’s a heck of a rock.

• Here’s a list of the award winning NBA writing from the past year. Great to see personal favorites such as Kevin Arnovitz on there. Congratulations to all the winners.

Craig Ehlo describes what it was like to guard Michael Jordan.

• Eventually the plan is to include fan voting for who should be in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. But not this year.

• And we end with Dr. J’s new Crown Royal ad.
