Break out the eggnog, Grandma! We’re divin’ into the TBJ time capsule! For example, take a look at this lil’ ditty from two years ago: “The Basketball Jones brings you seasonal NBA cheer with all your favorite holiday classics you didn’t know you loved yet! Learn the words, embrace the songs and don’t stop wassailin’ til you get enough.”

“[Wednesday] we thought we were moving toward a deal. Suddenly, today, they spend very little time negotiating. As soon as we got in there and presented our offer and without caucusing, they said, ‘We don’t have to do anything else. We can tell you right now we’re at 50 percent, and it has to be our way.’” — Kessler

Yup. Blazers owner Paul Allen killed a guy.

Well, that, or Peter Holt did.


The best part about Blake Griffin’s new Kia Optima commercial is not the ramp, hot potato phonograph gag, or the laugh-out-loud dunk animation. It’s the two-second shot (around the 0:25 mark) when Blake, still in rollerskates, showcases the mid-priced car like one of Bob Barker’s Beauties. In fact, someone make a .GIF of that, STAT!

On Tuesday night, in a good ol’ Big Blue All-Stars exhibition country game, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo tossed the best assist of the lockout, an over-the-head, no-look, one-handed, alley-oop pass to Denver Nuggets draft pick Kenneth Faried, who slammed it home cleanly.

At least, that’s what says happened. I don’t know — I refuse to watch the clip.

Take that, Stern!

As you might recall, last month, Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol and his younger brother, Marc, became sponsors of San Miguel 0.0 percent beer. The two of ‘em threw on a pair of their nicest dark jeans, attended a press conference in Spain, and toasted some non-alcoholic beer for the cameras. Mmmm … water!

Well, now they’ve got a commercial.

In the new spot, Pau says, translated from Spanish: “To be honest, I can’t recall the number of times I’ve seen my name written everywhere, in all the colors, sizes and types you can imagine, but the one that makes me feel more proud is the name I see on the back of my brother’s jersey.”

And then Marc dunks all over him.

“Hey, hermano.”
