Photo: Former NBA player Sean May with a dolphin

By Matt Moore

I'd love to fill this in with some sort of basketball analysis on May, how he looks like he's lost weight, how he's doing overseas, how he represents the very reason two draft picks should be granted to NBA teams. But really, this is just a photo of former Charlotte Bobcat and Sacramento King Sean May swimming with a dolphin. 

My favorite part is that he used one of those artistic photo apps for the smartphone to have this picture taken. Note the artsy border to the photo. Because really, when you want to remember that time you swam with a dolphin (who looks stoned), you want to make sure you have it look like something out of a hipster's photo exhibit.

Via Sean May's Tumblr, my new favorite thing in everything.

Brandon Marshall (NFL) wants to play in the NBA

NFL star receiver will try out for Nuggets or Heat if NFL suffers lockout in 2011.
Posted by Matt Moore

NFL star receiver Brandon Marshall is a terrific athlete and has an enormous ego that helped jettison him from Denver to Miami. Which means he'd be a perfect fit for the NBA. Which makes it convenient that Marshall says if the NFL is under lockout in 2011, he'll try out for the NBA, and predictably, he thinks he'll make it.

Marshall told reporters today at Dolphins training camp he planned on auditioning for either the Nuggets or Heat if the NFL locks out the players next year. Of course, what Marshall's probably unaware of is that the NBA is headed for a lockout of its own. Details, details!

How would Marshall, a high school basketball player, fare at the NBA? Well, he's definitely got the athleticism you look for. Killer speed and leaping ability. Unfortunately, he's 6-4, putting him squarely in the point-guard to combo-guard category. And that means he'd need an exceptional handle in order to have any impact. But hey, if he's killing time, playing in the NBA isn't a bad way to go about it.

Of course, you have to wonder what the Dolphins would say about this. I guess we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
