1. Kyle Lowry
The Toronto Raptors guard is arguably the best player whenever he steps on the Olympic floor. Need proof?
Lowry: 1st in defensive rating, 3rd in net rating. Team USA was +192 with him on the floor. Yeah, he’s good. https://t.co/Xj5tAKyPDd

2. That time when David Robinson decided to steal one scoring title from Shaq on the last day of the regular season…
… and finished with 71 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 blocks.
3. Bill Simmons
The Australian phenom had a generational lone college season at LSU. He became the only Division I player with at least 150 assists and 380 rebounds in a single season since 93-94.
Busy week for Kobe Bryant. Rings the bell at NYSE this morning. Now, L.A. City Council set to declare Wednesday — 8/24 — Kobe Bryant Day.

5. Toronto Raptors
The Raps are finally getting the attention that they deserve.
The Raptors are scheduled to appear on US national TV as many times this season as they had been in the previous 7 years combined (6)
