The 700 Level: Tonight, Andre Iguodala makes his return to Philadelphia.  This was the big news in Sixerville until the franchise announced earlier today that they’d be debuting “Big Fella,” the world’s largest t-shirt cannon, on Wednesday evening.  “Big Fella” weighs 600 pounds, fires 100 t-shirts in just 60 seconds, and looks like it’ll probably scare the crap out of little kids.  Rather than t-shirts, I think they ought to use it to disperse Andrew Bynum replica wigs. Eye On Basketball: Thanks to James Harden’s brand new contract with the Rockets, Houston’s strip club industry is predicting an excess of $80 million in added revenues over the next five years.  Also, maybe James Harden can finally afford to visit a dentist. Bleacher Report: The Nuggets have awarded Ty Lawson a four-year, $48 million contract extension.  I linked you to Bleacher Report because their article compares Masai Ujiri’s philosophy on building basketball teams to buying over-sized clothes for growing children.  Hopefully, for Ujiri’s sake, baby JaVale grows into his new overalls! Yahoo!: The Warriors will bet $44 million dollars on the ankles of Stephen Curry.  Being that he’s so much fun to watch, hopefully Curry can stay healthy and live up to his new, four-year contract extension. Nola.com/Pro Basketball Talk: Eric Gordon, who participated in his first full practice of the preseason just three days ago, is being put on the shelf indefinitely due to soreness in the same damn knee that kept him out nearly all of last season.  Monty Williams is presenting the “indefinite” tag as a method of dodging the media’s constant Gordon-related inquiries, but EJ’s history causes it to come across as a death sentence. Posting And Toasting/NJ.com: Amare Stoudemire’s Range Rover is currently submerged in water.  To make matters more unpleasant, the water appears to be full of garbage.  Kind of like his left knee. The Basketball Jones: Tim Duncan asked to rap on Stephen Jackson’s album.  Unfortunately, Stephen Jackson said no. NY Times: Thursday’s Knicks @ Nets game has been postponed by request of Mike Bloomberg.  Since TNT will still be carrying Thunder @ Spurs, I hope they devote the first three hours of their NBA block to a special, extended, Shaq-free edition of Who He Play For? TRNUSA.COM: Drew Gooden has opened a Wing Stop franchise in Orlando.  He plans to open more, so don’t make fun of Drew Gooden at any Wing Stop location.  He just might be your chef. Youtube: Kyrie Irving Uncle Drew is back, and he brought an old friend to Crenshaw!
