Video: John Wall’s new commercial for Reebok

Go ahead and make your joke about John Wall joining Derrick Rose as the guy not on the court making ads for basketball shoes if you must. We’ll wait. Get it out of your system.

Thing is, Reebok is in big with Wall and so you can’t blame them for putting out an ad. And frankly, I kind of like this one.

But Wall was supposed to be back around Thanksgiving and now we keep hearing “no timetable.” That’s not good for the Wizards or Reebok.

Hat tip to SLAM.

Report: Cavs sign Dionte Christmas

The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:

In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.

LeBron James sat out the Cavs’ preseason game against the Sixers on Thursday night, but Cleveland still held the lead for all but the final 5.4 seconds. Then, Sixers rookie Scottie Wilbekin did this:

Wilbekin, who played college ball at Florida, has a chance to earn legitimate minutes for the Sixers this season as they try to find young talent on the cheap. This is a good start.
