This season's offerings from the Sports Picks series promise the same intense attention to detail McFarlane Toys (if a player does it in real life, his McFarlane Mini-Me does it too... pitching styles, facial quirks, you name it...) is famous for... but that's not the only reason they're worth checking out when they hit shelves this month.
Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria (right) and San Francisco Giants hurler Tim Lincecum will make their McFarlane Toys debut with the release of the MLB 26 Series; based on how the two have performed so far in their respective careers, these figurines may become collecter's items by the time they hang up their cleats (aka... be sure to pick up a couple!).

This week, UNDRCRWN decided to mess around and commemorate the occasion by releasing a Celtics-green model of its "Mr. Triple Double" t-shirt.
You can see close-ups after the break...More »
The TNT crew caught up with Orlando Magic guard Vince Carter as the team prepared for tonight's matchup with the Atlanta Hawks to discuss his improving postseason play, Orlando's domination of the Hawks, and what VC, Dwight Howard and co. would need to do to pull off a series sweep. Pretty cool behind-the-scenes coverage...
But not the reason I'm posting this.
