On Thursday night, the Inside the NBA studio crew took some time to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year (February 10th) during Ernie Johnson's "Neat-O Stat of the Night" segment. EJ handed out toy animals to his crew mates to match the animals that represent the years in the Chinese calendar that Shaquille O'Neal, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley were born.

Charles Barkley called Kris Humphries the most disappointing player of the season – which leads to today’s latest trade rumor – a Bobcats/Nets discussion involving a Ben Gordon for Kris Humphries trade. Averaging 6 points and 6 rebounds, Humphries is getting a cool $12 million to come off the bench behind Reggie Evans ($1.229 million) who has out-performed the energy/dirty...
