Nice story about the Thunder players helping needy families buy presents at a local Target store. Every player and many of the front office workers (including GM Sam Presti) attended and helped brighten several families' holiday season.
Yao Ming is reportedly done for the season after another stress fracture, this time in his left ankle instead of the foot that's been his most steadfast opponent in his struggle to stay on the floor. Another tough break for Yao, and now the Rockets' season outlook is looking more and more grim.
J.R. Smith had an absolutely vicious climb-the-ladder dunk on Gary Neal in last night's Nuggets-Spurs bout. And Neal's left heel was obviously in the restricted area, so no charge, even though J.R. took off from just a couple feet in front of the free-throw line...Wow.
A pretty hilarious video of Rasheed Wallace and friends singing "Jingle Bells" in front of a green screen from a while back. Solid gold.
