Spin Magazine (Actually, I’m not even sure if it’s an actual magazine anymore. It might just be Spin.com) is out with my favorite list of the year. The editors have matched up 40 NBA players with their pop music alter-egos.
Among the selections-Carmelo Anthony as John Mayer, because both are capable of working well with others (Melo with Jeremy Lin, Mayer with Frank Ocean) but are better on their own. They also have tattoos and date actresses. It’s not the most obvious connection, but I’ll take it. I also like Tim Duncan as Wilco because, while they’re both still really good, they obviously peaked in 2002.
