Hardwood Hype's As Yet Unnamed Links Collection - January 12, 2011

A refreshing move on the heels of a humiliating 132-98 loss in Devner, as Suns' President of Basket Ops Lon Babby apologizes to the team's fans for an uninspired performance.

From The Basketball Jones, longtime Laker fan Holly Mackenzie addresses Kobe Bryant's basketball mortality and reflects on a decade and a half well-spent.

On HoopSpeak, Sherwood Strauss contends that LeBron was totally justified in taking a post-game Twitter dig at the Cavs- and makes a pretty compelling case.

Speaking of the Cavs' thumping in L.A., the Plain Dealer spoke with a beaten-down and incredulous Antawn Jamison, while Cavs: The Blog's John Krolik gave a firsthand account of a fan's view from rock bottom.

Hardwood Hype would like to join Peachtree Hoops in wishing a very happy 51st birthday to one of the greatest small forwards in NBA history, and one of the most electrifying players ever, the Human Highlight Film, Dominique Wilkins.

Despite the Celtics' mounting injury woes, CelticsBlog's Jeff Clark offers a "thanks, but no thanks" to the prospect of Rasheed Wallace coming to the rescue.

Meanwhile, Knicks' surprise second-round rookie sensation Landry Fields has been blogging on the team's official site- very entertaining and light-hearted, but clearly written by a Stanford man.

Finally, at Sactown Royalty, more arena-related shenanigans involving the Maloofs and the city: first, the venue formerly known as Arco Arena will be known for the next half-decade as the Power Balance Pavilion (that is one high-quality sponsor!), while the Maloofs angle for a nine-figure loan with which to threaten a move down I-5.

That Kobe article is exactly how I feel.
