By the time January rolls around - maybe the All-Star break, at the latest - Shaw envisions...

If you have played Nintendo’s Mario Kart, then you’ll know that these sounds by Denver Nuggets goofballs JaVale McGee and Evan Fournier.

The Denver Nuggets' JaVale McGee and Evan Fournier dominate voice impressions of the Mario Kart video game characters.
There was a surprise at Thunder practice today. Russell Westbrook participated in some non-full contact drills.
