Thursday And-1 Links: Jeremy Lamb as a young jeans model

Sep 26, 2013, 8:23 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.

• This is a few months old, but did you know Thunder reserve Jeremy Lamb was a jeans model in his youth?

Dwyane Wade owns more than 400 pairs of socks.

• Five NBA teams that should have an improved defense this year.

Danny Ferry thinks his Hawks team is still in the thick of it in the East. If by “in the thick of it” you mean “could possibly get playoff seed 6-8 if things break right” then yes, he’s correct.

Andrew Bogut and Stephen Curry both say they are completely healthy heading into the playoffs.

Curry will wear a flavored mouthpiece this season as part of an endorsement deal.

Nerlens Noel is not expected on the court until December, but he will travel with the Sixers starting from Day 1.

• Kelly Olynyk has battled plantar fasciitis this offseason, but Celtics GM Danny Ainge said the rookie should be 100 percent by the start of camp.

• Not hoops related, but this is a fascinating story about the declining student attendance in college football.

• Minnesota signed their 2012 second-round pick Robbie Hummel, who has a camp invite now. If healthy he might make the team, but that’s a long shot now.

• Former Knicks first-round pick Renaldo Balkman — who looked good for Puerto Rico at FIBA Americas — will attend Mavericks training camp.

• Joe Alexander, the former Bucks first round pick, got a training camp from the Warriors.

• D.J. White has an invite to the Bulls training camp.

• The Lakers are bringing Darius Johnson-Odom and Eric Boateng to training camp.

    FREE JEREMY LAMB!! He’s sat on the bench long enough

      OKC really has no choice. Over the last 12 months they’ve gone from Harden to Martin to Lamb.

      Thud.
