There Were No Mirrors in Dwyane Wade’s Hotel Room in Chicago

Or he lost his luggage and had to borrow a pair of pants from Nate Robinson.

Perhaps Wade feels the need to fill the postseason haute couture void created by the season-ending injury to Russell Westbrook, who usually sets the tone for this sort of thing.

Unless Wade is headed to a wedding reception on the beach, “fashion” in the NBA has officially reached a new low. (Hat tip to Deadspin, among many.)

NEW YORK — The NBA announced its All-Star starters tonight, and there were no surprises. Jeremy Lin finished third and never gained any ground on Chris Paul for the second guard spot in the West, and Kobe Bryant edged LeBron James by less than 8,000 votes for top-vote getter.

The big Turk left Utah’s game against Dallas with blood covering his face after taking an elbow from Vince Carter, but he returned and had six points and seven rebounds in the Jazz’s 113-94 victory Wednesday night.

We have already told you that Kanter is our favorite player (until someone deactivates his Twitter account), and we are giving his an “Evet” shoutout for his stylish look as he presumably went trolling for company after the game.

Kanter has already made the Tweet of the Night Hall of Fame, joining J.R. Smith as the founding members. We will be following him closely — if you know what does that mean.

Let’s face it: Orlando Magic GM Rob Hennigan got fleeced in the Dwight Howard trade. Put over a barrel by the demands of a petulant, wishy-washy superstar, he was the only executive who did not acquire an All-Star in the four-team blockbuster.

Hennigan’s net take for Howard and some extra parts was Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Moe Harkless, Nikola Vucevic, Christian Eyenga, Josh McRoberts, three highly protected future first-round picks and two second-round picks.

Unless Hennigan does some more wheeling and dealing this summer, his roster is the above players plus Jameer Nelson, Big Baby Davis, J.J. Redick, Quentin Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu, Gustavo Ayon, Justin Harper and rookies Andrew Nicholson and Kyle O’Quinn.

With a rookie coach in Jacque Vaughn, that squad is in the netherworld between contending and rebuilding, destined for 50-55 losses and virtually no chance at the high draft pick it needs to truly start over.

The Magic will be tough to watch this season. But during timeouts, the group of fine upstanding young women pictured above will be much easier on the eyes. These 20 ladies are the Orlando Magic Dancers for the 2012-13 season, announced Monday.

Perhaps they are smiling because they don’t follow basketball.

The winner is the picture below. It comes from the Facebook page of IAMAGM.com, which is a great site.

These are the suits the Americans will wear when they march in the opening ceremony tonight.

Apparently, we have chosen a cross between British schoolboy uniform and Catalan police garb.
