Give NBA players credit, they've been much more creative at how to pass the time waiting to play than their NFL counterparts were earlier this season, at least besides Ochocinco.  Granted, the NBA has now begun to actually miss regular season games, but that isn't stopping the stars of the hardwood from keeping themselves busy.  A new LeBron James McDonald's commercial showed up to give a nice break from the endless talk of international barnstorming tours.  Then Kevin Durant went and played a game of flag football with a random dude.  But my new favorite locked out NBA player has to be Chris Paul. The video below comes courtesy of our friends over at SportsGrid.  My only disappointment with the following is that fat Louie Anderson isn't the host anymore, or Al Borland for that matter... Hopefully for Chris Paul, the lockout can end soon so he doesn't have to become a professional game show contestant.  I suppose it could have been worse.  He could've followed the Family Feud playbook of this guy... TURKEY!   Don't forget for all the latest on the NBA Lockout you can check out Crossover Chronicles, Bloguin's flagship NBA blog.   [h/t SportsGrid] [follow]
