LeBron James goes after Mario Chalmers; Emily Ratajkowski is today's Fox-y Lady
LeBron James almost killed Mario Chalmers last night. OK, that might be a slight exaggeration, but at one point, it certainly looked like LeBron was going to do something to Chalmers when things got heated during a timeout in Miami's 97-94 win against Indiana. James quickly apologized to Chalmers and then diffused the situation afterward on Twitter, of course.
FLOP OF THE DAY
In that same Miami-Indiana game, Paul George pulled off a marvelous acting job.
Washington guard Glen Rice had to undergo wrist surgery on Tuesday after aggravating the injury while celebrating the Wizards' win over the Knicks on Monday. Then, this happened to coach Randy Wittman last night.
WATCH THE GUY ON THE LEFT
When Knicks center Andrea Bargnani heaved up a shot instead of trying to run out the clock while New York up two on the Bucks last night, the Knicks bench went nuts. The best reaction, though, came from the dude on the left in the black shirt and khaki pants. (Thanks to @HPBasketball for the GIF.)
GIVEAWAY OF THE DAY
1. During my podcast with Connor Barwin last week, I asked him to name his favorite album of 2013. He gave three. Name one. UPDATE: Giveaway is done. Headphones are gone.
