Good morning. Let's basketball.

LOVE AFFAIR: Kevin Love visited Boston and flirted heavily with the Celtics.

Celtics fans are understandably excited. Flip Saunders is not.

TONY'S OK: The Spurs expect Tony Parker to be ready for Game 1 on Thursday.

PLUS: The state of Manu Ginobili's game, from Pounding The Rock. The Heat's aging roster is peaking at the right time, from Hot Hot Hoops.

Here's your full Finals schedule, by the way. Thursday-Sunday-Tuesday is the pattern.

This is as close as Tim Duncan gets to talking trash.

This is as close as Gregg Popovich ever gets to being happy.

THE COMPLETELY WACKADOODLE STORY BEHIND CHRIS ANDERSEN'S LEGAL TROUBLES. I don't know that there's a way to really TL;DR it. Worth the long read.

LANCE: Did Lance Stephenson lose himself some money with his LeBron antics?

EWING: Patrick Ewing believes his calling is to coach the Knicks. He's never been asked.

FISHER: Howard Beck investigates Derek Fisher's options, including coaching jobs with the Lakers and Knicks.

WELP: We know someone on the Indianapolis Marriott's social media team didn't watch Game 6 of the East Finals.

BUBBLE: Zach Lowe on what the high price tag on the Clippers means for the NBA and its players.

SEATTLE: Chris Hansen released a statement congratulating his buddy Steve Ballmer for buying the Clippers. Hansen also indicated he'd find another very rich person to bankroll his next attempt to resurrect the Sonics.

INSTANT FOLLOW: @SavedYouAClick spoils leading, mysterious tweets by revealing what's behind the link. It's good for folks who lack the willpower to not click on a "These 3 Vegetables Will Save Your Life" link. Unfortunately, it still means you have to watch Dr. Oz to find out what ingredient in your toothpaste is slowly killing you.

HEY! It's a bear in a hammock. (That embed may autoplay, so be wary.)

Happy Monday. See you next time.
