Around the Net: October 28, 2011

From Dunking with Wolves:

From Buckets Over Broadway:

At the risk of gross hyperbole, is it now safe to declare Walt “Clyde” Frazier a living legend? The language, the wardrobe, the flair, the style, the defensive dominance, the championships, the altogether cool.
