Would you like to see video of a Karaoke benefit hosted by Shane Battier that includes Battier, Chase Budinger singing Bon Jovi, and Luis Scola singing “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Of course you would. Here’s a link to the video, courtesy of click2houston.com. (Hat tip goes to Deadspin.) 

The benefit raised money for the Boys and Girls clubs of Greater Houston, so kudos to Battier and co. for willing to look a bit silly for a good cause. The only other thing I’ll note is that while Battier doesn’t have the best voice, the benefit did seem to go much better when he was on the stage as opposed to when he was off of it.

NEW ORLEANS — Russell Westbrook hit 4-of-6 3-pointers in the third quarter.

This one apparently put him on fire to the point he had to cool himself off.

It’s hard to find a new low for defense in an NBA All-Star Game.

But Stephen Curry was laying down on defense. Literally.

The result was a Giannis Antetokounmpo dunk and Curry ending up in the highlight anyway.

Hey, DeAndre Jordan, where was this Saturday night during the Dunk Contest?

The Clippers’ big man threw down an off-the-backboard alley-oop from Russell Westbrook during the All-Star Game Sunday that was better than anything he did on Saturday night. Enjoy
