Ballin: Maybe you think David Lee’s 15 points, 20 rebounds and nine assists is a good line. You are right. So do I. But also, it’s the kind of line that hasn’t been seen in the NBA since David Lee in 2010.

Not so much: Zach Randolph and Tony Allen combined to go 7-29 from the field in last night’s Grizzlies loss. Obviously, they’ll never recover from the loss of Rudy Gay, so let’s never mention the Grizzlies again.

Angry: Russell Westbrook got angry at Thabo Sefolosha last night, got angrier on the bench and then got angriest during a postgame interview with Craig Sager.

This is hard for me to take seriously for three reasons: 1) the Thunder won the game, 2) it’s Russ’ fault he got whistled for a 5-second call, 3) his sweatshirt is from H&M and costs like $40 tops. If you’re going to be famous for zany shirts and being intense, you better get intense about the right stuff and wear shirts that I can’t afford.

Whoa: Here is an amazing stat from Elias regarding Serge Ibaka’s six blocks in 26 minutes: “Over the past two seasons, Ibaka has recorded more than five blocks in less than 30 minutes 11 times. All other NBA players have combined for just 10 such games over that span.” That’s silly.

Related: Speaking of blocks, Andrew Bogut’s game-saver was pretty chill.

Also chill was this one, where Bogut covers way too much ground for a guy his size that looks like Kelly Dwyer with a beard.

Nope: This tiny Russell Westbrook fan is the new Aaron Gray.

Other things: Nice look at all the 90s retro jerseys you’ve seen — and will be seeing — on the court soon … Kareem Abdul-Jabbar reviewed “Girls” for the Huffington Post and typed the words “black dildo,” so I think we can add that to his statue … Some basic clutch stats for your perusal … Shaqtin’ a Fool, you guys … GIF up top is from CJ Fogler and is the very definition of how to guard an inbounds play

  1. After seeing that Westbrook clip I think Royce White might be right.

  2. Soooooo excited about those Bucks & Hawks jerseys

  3. “If you’re going to be famous for zany shirts and being intense, you better get intense about the right stuff and wear shirts that I can’t afford.”

    Trey wins the internet today.

  4. “Maybe you think David Lee’s 15 points, 20 rebounds and nine assists is a good line. You are right. So do I. But also, it’s the kind of line that hasn’t been seen in the NBA since Kevin Garnett in 2004. Pretty cool.”

    in 2010 againts Warriors David Lee had 37 pts 20 reb and 10 assists, its not counted as “same kind of the line” :) ?

    • Great catch. Not sure how that was missed. Updated.

    • If you throw in two turnovers or less as a criteria, then nobody’s done it since Webber in 1999. Varejao also came really close, but only had 9 points when he did it last season. Only four players in NBA history have put up 15/20/9 with two turnovers or less.

  5. Man I love those retro Suns jerseys, miles better than the ones they wear now. Gimme some Raptors retros from 95-96!

    • The white home unis are god awful I don’t understand why they don’t wear orange at home ala lakers yellow. The black unis are just as terrible.

  6. I don’t mean to steal any of Russell Westbrook’s thunder (see what I did there?), but for years I’d go around wearing bright red sweat pants and roll just one pants leg as far up as I could. This is why I feel he and I could be good friends.

  7. When I saw the old pacers jersey with 24 all I could think of was pacers great jonathon bender.

    • I really hated those unis. the ones before were übercool but those jerseys achieved the rare feat of basically screaming “meh” at you. so much aggressive mediocrity was just too much to take. So why on earth do the pacers go retro with those shirts?! They look like some intern designed them with Microsoft Paint

  8. I want to see the Warriors and the Grizzies to play each other in the playoff just to watch (if healthy) the two best front starting court in the NBA.

  9. I cracked when i heard Barkley’s explanation why westbrook was so angry today!!!
    hahahahhaah!

  10. Russell needs to STOP BEING RIKE A BEHBEH

  11. It looks like Westbrook’s about to throw up right before he leaves the bench to go to the locker room. Weird.

  12. where the fuck is my podcast?!?!

  13. Russ didn’t handle that like a man at all. He handled it like a stroppy baby.

    Man up and wear block colours.

  14. man craig sagers suit is absolutely wonderful. cant we all agree that sager is the greatest sideline reporter of all time
