Kobe Bryant while in Boston for an away game, decides to learn a thing or two about marketing at Boston College.
In my best Kanye West voice, "Last night was mad real." The Bulls went into triple overtime for the second time this season, Greg Oden played his first regular season game in forever, the Clippers made a ridiculous comeback, Nick Young got ejected and ,well, SO MUCH MORE. It was a good night to be an NBA fan. So with that being said, let's get right to all the fun.
Jordan Crawford's been traded from the Boston Celtics to the Golden State Warriors. Some call him Steezus, but he's definitely more of a Janus.

This past weekend the San Antonio Spurs held their annual dinner and auction gala, Tux ‘N Tennies, with proceeds going to the nonprofit partner for Spurs Sports & Entertainment, Silver & Black Give Back. The theme for the night was Spurs Night Live, a play off of Saturday Night Live as it featured performances by Spurs players like this spot on Andy Kaufman impersonation by forward Matt Bonner:
Comedic performances are not new to Bonner, as last year he performed live improv with iO Chicago and his Coach B persona is a well known Internet celebrity.
For those of you unfamiliar with the original Kaufman bit, do take the minute and forty-four seconds to watch the comedic genius at work:
Kaufman performed this bit on the very first episode of SNL on October 11, 1975 and it is great to see that after thirty plus years it still holds up. It is also great to see that Bonner, like with his perfect shooting form, displayed perfect form in this performance:

Watch Clippers center Ryan Hollins squeeze his seven foot frame into a Smart Car.
This time next week, you won't be able to fill out another ballot for the All-Star game. It'll all be done. Finito. And all that will be left to determine who will be starting on February 16th when the East takes on the West in New Orleans is the tallying up of the millions of votes that have been casted over the last few months.
On January 25th, 2013, Rajon Rondo tore his ACL in a game against the Atlanta Hawks. On January 17th, 2014, he'll likely make his return.
NBA GMs trade so many picks, that by tracing the paths of just four individual picks over three years, I can connect 20 different NBA teams to them. No, that's not a joke.
