Video: DeMarcus Cousins is Santa Claus, forgot how to ride a bike

You know that old saying, “Such and such is just like riding a bike — you never forget?” Well, nope, because I just watched DeMarcus Cousins try to remember how to ride a bike while wearing glasses and a way-too-small Santa Claus costume. And I laughed and laughed and laughed, about every single part of that previous sentence. New favorite Santa Claus.

All that, plus how Skeets keeps that body builder physique.

NBA Happenings: Dec. 11, 2013

Shoutout: 26 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists for Kevin Love, which is a nice line. And then once I tell you that he didn’t play a single minute in the fourth quarter of the Timberwolves’ decimation of the Pistons, then it immediately turns in to a magnificent line.

 

Not so much: A combined 1-17 shooting on the evening for Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich and Marquis Teague in Chicago’s stupid home loss to the Bucks. It’s like they’re trying to prove that, yes, D.J. Augustin actually is an upgrade at this point. No pun intended, lots of ugh intended.

 

Sit on down: If you are a fan of Kawhi Leonard and enjoy seeing him succeed, let me strenuously recommend that you do not watch this clip.

 

 

Quite the highlight festival in this one — peep Jonas Valanciunas’ dunk and Manu Ginobili’s fake – but this is my favorite. The Raptors lost, of course, but at least they won this very important “Who Had the Best Highlight?” contest.
