Not the craziest thing to ever happen in the NBA, but damn was I impressed when I was watching the game last night.  Never heard of Jodie Meeks in my life and he came into the Lakers game against the Denver Nuggets and hit his first 5 shots last night.  All three pointers.  He ended the game shooting 7 for 8 behind the line and didn't have any two point baskets.  Honestly this is just what the Lakes need to get over the hump.  A spot up shooter than can knock down open threes when the big guys kick it back out.  Look forward to watching this guy a lot more later in the season.  Video of his highlights below.
