Video: Four minutes of Joakim Noah leading the fast break

If you need me, I’ll be over here, downloading this brilliant supercut from YouTube and then having it burned on to a golden Laserdisc so that I can show my future grandkids how they need to play whenever they are born and grow up. Only one question — how young is too young to to tutor a child in the ways of Noah? Might be weird to stick a player in a hospital incubator, so I’ll probably just wait until they arrive home and then rig some sort of continuous loop so that they have to watch this 24 hours a day. World’s best grandpa, right here.

On Tuesday’s 100th episode of The Starters, the guys discuss — IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER! — the Spurs’ streak, how the Pacers can right the ship, the comeback ‘Cats, what in the world Timofey Mozgov was thinking, Patrick Beverley’s knee, and new Easter kicks. That, plus Bones joins us to discuss NBA referees, whether the league should abolish conferences, and April Fools’ Day pranks.

Video: Dirk Nowitzki talks nicknames on ‘Conan’

Sorry, Paul Rudd, but I’ve got a new favorite “Conan” guest now. I’m sure he understands, but Dirk straight crushing this nicknames bit last night is just impossible to beat. It was a nice run while it lasted, Rudd. There’s a new Herr in town.

Shoutout: Just because it’s such a bizarre looking line, let’s give a shoutout to DeAndre Jordan throwing down an 11-point, 24-rebound, 4-block performance in a win against the Timberwolves. Though to be fair, now that I’m looking in to it, this kind of seems to be DeAndre’s thing, as he’s went for such a line five times already this season. But still, it looks crazy.

 

Not so much: The Pacers lost again, this time to the Spurs, which is fair enough. The bad part, however, is that they scored just 77 points, the fifth time in their last six games that they haven’t topped 80, which is something that hasn’t been done since the Bobcats did it during the season where they set the record for lowest winning percentage ever. Seriously.

 

Silliness: Here’s the LeBron James and-one that finally sunk the Raptors.

 

 

LeBrisket finished the night with 32 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, six turnovers, a massive dunk and the No. 1 seed, so you could say it was a good night.
