Hi, hello, welcome to B Sides: Volume 7 of the 2017-18 NBA season. We’re already a quarter of the way through the year, which seems wild but it’s true.
None of that is important now, though, because I have seven new reasons for you to love the NBA this week.
1. The Denver Nuggets think they are a boy band
Before you ask, no this does not count as part of the photoshoot curse that Zito Madu explained here. It’s before a game. It started randomly. And honestly, the Nuggets don’t have enough at stake to curse themselves.
What it is, though, is a beautiful photo set of the Nuggets attempting to be the next boy band to take over the world:
I’d buy their debut album.
2. LeBron’s shadow looks like Abe Lincoln
IT REALLY DOES. IT’S WEIRD.

3. This photo of Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson
The Pistons are actually kind of good. Andre Drummond seems happy. I’m here for it.
4. Starter jackets are back!
This is the start of something special. I love the ‘90s so much.
5. Memphis Grannies and Grandpas dancing to Gucci Gang
Listen, things aren’t exactly great in Memphis right now. But at least we have this:

6. Kenneth Faried’s Hey Arnold shirt
I’m really high on the Nuggets right now. They are B-Sides gold.
7. Dwyane Wade embracing the twilight of his career.
Here is Dwayne Wade as a busy mom taking some "me time":
And leaning into being part of the “Bench Mob” in Cleveland:
I like old Dwyane Wade a lot.
My favorite James Harden photo of the week
