It was Luda Day weekend in Atlanta last weekend, where rapper Ludacris both throws some big parties and gives back to the community in Atlanta (such as taking 1,000 youth to see an Atlanta Braves game.
The highlight of the weekend is the charity basketball game, which featured Kevin Durant (of course it did, he’s everywhere), Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and of course Justin Bieber. Of course.
Below are the highlights, with plenty of Bieber. Because I know you secretly have all his stuff on your iPod. Admit it.

It could happen, they are certainly contenders. But two things need to happen.
The big one is their defense, which was middle of the pack last season, needs to move into the top 10 (and DeAndre Jordan needs to play consistently like a guy who is third in Defensive Player of the Year voting).
Second is the new and improved bench unit of Lance Stephenson, Josh Smith, and Jamal Crawford (he’s not new) need to mesh into a unit. Those are three guys who like to create for themselves and make questionable shot choices, getting them play well with others could be a bumpy road.
