Monday Musings: NBA Finals, Doughnut Boxes, and Bleachers

Monday Musings returns with some interesting articles to check out on the NBA Finals, why doughnut boxes are pink, and then give a listen to Bleachers. Check it all out below.

So Kevin Durant Can Play Center Now?

After Draymond Green fell into foul trouble during the third quarter, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr put Durant at the 5 — a position he had played for only eight minutes this season, entering the night, per NBA Wowy. Over a five-minute stint, the Warriors extended their lead to 14, and Durant thrived; the stretch was a microcosm of Durant’s technicolor performance that left him two steals short of a 5×5, with 33 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, and five blocks.

Kevin O’Connor over at The Ringer took a look at Kevin Durant’s performance at center in last night’s Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Even if you watched the game and already witnessed what he did, this is a good read on him and the situation.

Why are doughnut boxes pink? The answer could only come out of Southern California

The pink box is a distinctly regional tradition, one so ingrained it often requires an outsider to notice. The Northeast has Dunkin’ Donuts and its neon orange and pink box. The South has Krispy Kreme and its polka dot box. But come to Los Angeles and it’s the no-frills pink box, with signature grease marks, that commands counter space in our offices, waiting rooms and police stations.

If you’ve ever wondered about pink doughnut boxes, the LA Times has the reason why. Reading this just made me want a whole box of doughnuts, though, so consider yourself warned.
