It's like GQ with a higher IQ?

Check out this bit of sports-triting in the March issue from noted word arranger Mike Lupica, about the NBA's Kevin Garnett: "He comes up the court, smiling. Loving this game. Loving this life. He is twenty. Where does a go-to guy go to? To the rack. To the rim. To the sky."

Did they maybe mean GQ with haiku?
