Scott Machado: A Point Guard With Vision, Even if He Needs Glasses

+
In December, dealing with dizziness, Machado went to see a neurologist and an ophthalmologist, both on the same day. To his relief, nothing appeared on the neurologist’s magnetic resonance imaging scan. But the eye doctor prescribed something new: glasses. Machado is mildly myopic. In order words, Machado, whose court vision has helped him become the nation’s leader with 10.0 assists a game, recently discovered he is nearsighted. "Wow, that’s actually pretty funny," Manhattan Coach Steve Masiello said. "The best point guard in the country couldn’t see. He sure doesn’t show it." http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/10/sports/ncaabasketball/iona-guard-scott-machado-passes-his-way-to-prominence.html?_r=1&hpw

N.B.A. Draftees Know How to Dress

An air of giddy anticipation hung over the arena as the first pick of the 2011 draft was announced. As expected, Kyrie Irving, a 19-year-old point guard from Duke with a choirboy smile, was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The 8,400 spectators erupted into applause. Irving coolly exchanged hugs with family and walked onstage with the studied calm of the Oscar winner for Best Actor. He wore a sleek navy pinstripe suit with a lavender striped necktie — courtesy of Giorgio Armani, and fitted at the designer’s megastore on Fifth Avenue a few days before. .... Perhaps the most GQ-ready look was found on Tristan Thompson, the fourth player selected, also by the Cavaliers. The forward from the University of Texas wore a custom charcoal suit by Paper Brown Bag, a Harlem label, that called to mind a very fashionable Pee-wee Herman with tapered pants and a shrunken jacket. Thompson, 20, comes to the league with a taste for Ferragamo, YSL and Comme des Garçons. "I definitely like a European look, pride myself on the European style," he said. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/30/fashion/nba-draftees-know-how-to-dress.html

Every year, the NBA tips its hand as to who it believes are the top 14 or 15 prospects in the draft with its annual "green room" invitations. These players are invited by the league to sit in a special room with their families and agent on draft night. When their names are called, they leave the room and go up on stage to shake commissioner David Stern's hand. .... The only conspicuous name left off the list is Bismack Biyombo from Congo.
