Nyets CEO Brett Yormark yelled at this guy for wearing a paper bag on his head. Shouldn't he be happy the fans haven't switched to plastic bags?

In brief legal news, Mateen Cleaves has been arrested for suspicion of drunken driving. In other news, Mateen Cleaves is still alive? Wow. Who knew? Also, Gilbert Arenas might do some jail time. Bear in mind, this is the man who said he "deserved to be punished." Well, okay then. Why is your lawyer trying to get you out of it?

Not many games tonight to talk about, so how about a little throwback action? Luckily our readers have supplied plenty of material!

Courtesy of Bawful reader CaptainHomeless, let's take a trip down Manlove Avenue. (As he noted, "So, this is an actual street that I drive by every day in Indianapolis. I just ... thought you guys would appreciate it." Yes. Yes we do.)

As shared by Bawful reader 80sNBA, Hakeem once provided us with one of the all time great moments in man love history.

Hakeem man love
Thank God there was a camerman nearby to preserve this moment forever.

Worst of the Night in Pictures:


Just think of how empty your life would be without Stan Van Gundy

Gettin' a little personal there, don't you think, guys?

And just think -- this is the winning coach

Alright, alright, take it down a notch. You beat the Kings...

Nationally Televised Games:
Nuggets at Knicks: Nothing like the Bricks to make for a good national TV broadcast. These are the days I don't complain about not getting NBA TV.

All The Other Games:
Bobcats at Wizards Generals Bullets: Oh no! A moral dilemma! Who will Michael Jordan root for?! (Sorry, trying to drum up some kind of drama for this game, no matter how far-fetched)

Pacers at Pistons: This will probably be a 92-85 kind of final score, but not because of good defense. Ugggggggh. Fun aside: I was reading Chad Ford's ESPN.com chat today and just had to shake my head at this exchange:
Steven (Indy)
Is there anything I can do to stop the Pacers from winning meaningless games and ruining their chance at a top draft pick?

Chad Ford (1:30 PM)
I keep wondering the same thing. Last week they had the 4th worst record in the league, had an 11.9 percent chance of winning the lottery and were in line to land a franchise type player like Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins. This week? They have a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery, have the 8th worst record and are in line to draft Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe. Way to go Jim O'Brien. Rest Danny Granger the rest of the season (if it isn't too late) and give Josh McRoberts lots of minutes. That ought to do it.
Clippers at Mavericks: Have the Clippers started thinking about who they'd like to draft in the lottery yet? It'd be nice to let that guy know in advance, so he can mentally prepare himself for the inevitable injury that will end his season and/or career.
