Then after the BET Awards show it’s the after party
And after the party it’s the hotel lobby
And around about 5am you gotta clear the lobby
Then head to Jamie Foxx’s basketball game and hit a game-winner over somebody… 

Apparently R. Kelly and Jamie Foxx played a game of basketball at 5am the morning after the BET Awards and this happened.

In other J.R. Smith related news, here is a photo of Louis C.K., Chris Rock, and Earl Joseph Smith III himself (wearing the JAWS movie poster??) hanging out at the 40/40 club last week during Rihanna’s after party.
One can only hope they are discussing a possible Pootie Tang sequel with J.R. as Pootie Tang’s long lost cousin.

Knicks guard and Sixth Man of the Year J.R. Smith reportedly missed practice this morning and is listed as questionable for today’s game due to “illness”. Which is a better excuse than “DNP (hungover af from partying with Rihanna all week)”.

But perhaps the most bizarre anecdote from the recent wave of Jason Collins news was the fact that notable comedian–and Rush fan–Jason Segel, was his backup center for the 1996 Harvard-Westlake High School basketball team.
According to a 1996 L.A. Times article Jason Segel was the team’s court jester (not surprised) and after entering the slam dunk contest, earned him the nickname “Doctor Dunk”.
From the article:

"I’m not nearly as skilled a basketball player as some of the other guys," Segel says. "But I have a lot of bravado."
Not to mention a made-for-the-highlight-reels dunk.
During Harvard’s two-week East Coast trip in December, Segel wowed a Florida crowd with a two-handed slam made with the front of his jersey pulled over his head. Before the dunk, Segel stood poised, calling for silence with outstretched arms. After the dunk, he dove headfirst into the stands.
"He put on an absolute show," Da Costa said.
Segel also keeps the team loose with impressions of everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Kermit the Frog. He even does Hilliard.
"You spend five minutes around Jason and he’ll come up with a pretty good impression of you," Abusaleh said.
An aspiring actor, Segel has dabbled in bit parts and studied in England. After the season, Segel is scheduled to begin rehearsals for a school production in which he will deliver a 22-minute soliloquy on stage.
"I love getting up in front of people," he says.
His most memorable moment this season? The dunk, of course. Not because he made it but because Jarron allowed him to. Jarron qualified for the competition ahead of Segel but deferred to his teammate.
"He knew it was something important to me, so he stepped back and let me do it," Segel said. "I appreciated that."

What a crazy, awesome world. Hat tip to Andrew Ungvari for the article.

Our N.Y. Knicks: While many of you were embroiled in watching the Oscars, (Don’t even get me started, I mean o.k., The King’s Speech, but what about  Winter’s Bone? what about Darren Aronofsky or David Fincher for best director? Jeff Bridges or that Little girl from The Coen Brothers excellent True Grit?) o.k., I digress, while all this shit went down, The Knicks played the Miami Heat. A high Profile game played by higher profile players and I am happy to report, the Knicks won! Not just outscoring their opponent, as they have done in most of their victories this year, but they actually BEAT the Heat by playing defense. So seeing this at the deli today made me happy

With Danilo Gallinari leaving town, I assume Spike Lee spent all day researching Ancestry.com. He’s probably hoping Carmelo is maybe just 1/64 Italian, that way he could justify doing this stupid hand gesture. I assume someone like Danny Aiello or Chaz Palminteri conned him into thinking it would be cool if he did it every time an Italian made a bucket.

Spike Lee manages to wear a hat that is uglier than Ray Felton’s jump shot.  Tough to do.
It actually reminds me of that expensive rat hat George wore in Seinfeld.  Only orange.
