Things that make me happy — Shaun Livingston earning playing time, getting run in crunch time and leading the Bobcats to a win over the Celtics. (No offense to D.J. Augustin or the Celtics, but we root hard for Livingston around these parts.)
A fantastic statistical breakdown of what makes Manu Ginobili good. Very good.
The Hornets are currently owned by the league. They are one of two teams that does a pre-game prayer in the arena. Does that violate the league’s own policy?
Can LeBron James win a third straight MVP? Should he?
The injury to Marquis Daniels may force Boston to make a trade.

Interesting little interview with Greg Monroe of the Pistons, who has really come along as the season has worn on.

J.R. Smith walked in the Nuggets locker room for shootaround Monday, noticed Carmelo Anthony wasn’t there and freaked out. (Anthony was out for personal reasons but played in the game. And dropped 50.)
Be warned, Hedo Turkoglu’s knee is killing him.
