Maybe LeBron shouldn't have said anything about Cleveland...
It's President's Day! That means it's time for our annual history lesson about George Washington. If you don't watch, he will eat your children.

Worst of the Night in Pictures:
OM NOM NOM
Linsanity dies against the Hornets. The HORNETS.
Gary Neal can levitate. Neat.
Stan leads his team in a chorus of "Wheels on the Bus"
Doc Rivers: Tap Dancer
Kevin Love always has the best pictures
Nationally Televised Games:
Hawks at Bulls, ESPN, 4:00pm: Derrick Rose is back, you guys!
Celtics at Mavericks, TNT, 8:00pm: Does anyone know if Kevin Garnett is going to play in this one? If not, this one sways from ugly to super ugly.
Trail Blazers at Lakers, TNT, 10:30pm: The Lakers just got whomped by the lowly Suns. If Kobe doesn't come out swinging (and putting up crazy jump shots), I will be very surprised.
All The Other Games:
Nyets at Knicks, 7:30pm: If The Prokhorov still gave a damn about his team, he would have someone break Jeremy Lin's knees in awesomely Russian mobster style before this game. However, he's too busy jumping jetskis over sharks or running for president of Russia or something, so that won't be a concern.
Grizzlies at Rockets, 8:00pm: Revenge game potential, anyone? From the STATS LLC game preview: "Lowry was one of Houston's few bright spots in last Tuesday's loss at Memphis
with 24 points and six assists. The Rockets committed 18 turnovers and shot a
season-low 38.5 percent. Houston leading scorer Kevin Martin missed all three of his shots
in that game and went scoreless for the first time in six seasons."
Magic at Bucks, 8:00pm: Dwight Howard has gone into beast mode every time he's played the Deer in Headlights this month. 18.5 points, 17.0 rebounds and 4.0 blocks. So yeah. Have fun with that, Milwaukee.
Hornets at Thunder, 8:00pm: My girlfriend came over last night while I was watching the start of the Nuggets/Thunder game. She's a basketball fan, but not at all an NBA fan, so we only watched that for a few minutes before popping in a DVD, but I did get to see Kevin Durant start off strong (though Russell Westbrook's nasty two handed jam was more impressive looking). So of course I woke up this morning and read that Durant had 51 last night and I missed most of it. Oops.
Timberwolves at Nuggets, 9:00pm: If the Timberwolves win tonight, they will be over .500 for the season so far. I'll just step back and let your wrap your mind around that one for a second.
There we go.
Wizards Generals at Suns, 9:00pm: Fun fact: this is the only time all season these two teams will meet. The Suns are surely disappointed by this fact.
Spurs at Jazz, 9:00pm: Manu Ginobili is hurt again??
Clippers at Warriors, 10:30pm: Hey, did you know the Clippers haven't had consecutive losses since late December? Oh crap. I just stat jinxed the hell out of them, didn't i? I'm sorry! I didn't mean it!!
