Yes, baseball and baseball cards are my true loves when it comes to our great hobby, but there is no denying the NBA took center stage this past week.

Kobe Bryant said goodbye, over and over and over again — to the tune of 60 points.

The Golden State Warriors won their 73rd game, and “Michael Jordan crying” took on new meaning.

And George Karl is on the NBA streets as the playoffs begin.

So, while there is plenty of diamond goodness among this week’s links, hoops get their due, too.
