Muscle cramps. They're a pain. Literally.
CJ Watson got locked in a bathroom on the Pacers' bus ride to San Antonio and being the good teammate that he is, Roy Hibbert sat down and filmed the whole thing.
Instagram sure is a funny place. Unlike Twitter, there is no character limit and sometimes, things get out of control in the comments section. If you follow LeBron James, you'll probably have noticed that nearly every photo he posts ends up being a debate between a handful of people on whether or not he is as godly as he's made out to be.

Last night should have been a boring night in the NBA, but it was far from it. We had a team work their way back to .500 for the first time in...ages. We had a triple overtime game, which doesn't happen very often. We had a game-winning jumper from one of the oldest men in the world. We had a huge upset out in Utah. We had a ridiculously fun game between the two best teams in the NBA, which also featured a career night from one of its youngest stars. So yeah, it was kind of awesome.

You know the drill by now, so let's get to the best and worst from a busy Monday night in our wonderful association.
In case you missed the big news today, Kobe Bryant signed a two-year extension with the L.A. Lakers worth a whopping $48.5 million. That's right, the 35-year old Kobe Bryant who tore his Achilles less than a year ago, and is yet to play a game since doing it, just signed a contract that will make him the highest paid player in the NBA for two more years.
