NBA Fashion Watch
Orson Welles once said, “Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.” For Ray Allen, style is a tailored suit. For Dwight Howard, it’s a polo shirt and purse. For LeBron James … well the shirt speaks for itself. Wherever you stand, here’s a look at the NBA’s best “going to the arena” fashion so far this season.
Four WAG Updates
Jenny Dell, an NESN reporter who is living with Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks, may be heading to Fox Sports 1. Dell is quite popular in Boston … Tennis pro Ryan Sweeting married actress Kaley Cuoco on New Year’s Eve … Metta World Peace tweeted a photo of him and his lady in bed … Paulina Gretzky, who’s engaged to golfer Dustin Johnson, posted a bikini pic to welcome in the new year.
One Naked Runner Update
We mentioned in AM Hot Clicks that Olympic runner runner Nick Symmonds was vowing to run naked until he found a new apparel sponsor following the expiration of his Nike deal on Dec. 31. We’re happy to announce that Symmonds signed with Brooks. He can now run fully clothed.

Also included in the issue is Charles Barkley discussing his thoughts on driving a Rolls Royce to the supermarket as well as a short profile of Arizona linebacker Tedy Bruschi.
Odds and Ends
This man re-created famous romantic movie scenes with his dog. Its tremendous … Free agent punter Chris Kluwe ripped former coaches Leslie Frazier and Mike Priefer in a Deadspin article … The Memphis Grizzlies drafted an eight-year-old who suffers from cerebral palsy. His wish was to be drafted by an NBA team … The Stanford Marching Band enjoyed themselves at yesterday’s Rose Bowl (even if they got the Snapchat logo wrong) … This year’s Puppy Bowl will include penguin cheerleaders and a cat playing the keyboards.
Hulkamania Hits New England
I was going to have a big Hulk Hogan gallery in tomorrow’s P.M. Clicks, but couldn’t wait that long to post this bizarre video of the Hulkster professing his love for the Patriots (and specifically tight end Matthew Mulligan).
