Ball Don’t Lie: Steve Nash may want to consider bottling his pit stank and marketing it as cologne.  He’s already got one prospective customer who could double as a famous spokesperson in teammate Metta World Peace.  The product would likely fly off the shelves considering the great influence of the Los Angeles Lakers, an organization that has popularized such things as Matt Barnes’ wife. The Basketball Jones: For god’s sake, people, stop driving your cars into LaMarcus Aldridge’s black Ferraris and limited edition Mercedes Benzes! Hoop Chalk: NBA247365.COM contributor Jacob Frankel goes into great detail regarding Minnesota’s devastating Pek-and-roll.  I know, I know, I’ve hammered this subject to death, but Jacob actually provides diagrams and stuff.  I mostly just pretend Pekovic is a mythological character with superhuman physical abilities. USA Today: For some reason, the Grizzlies seem determined to trade Rudy Gay for a collection of lesser players.  Rumored destinations for Rudy include pretty much everywhere, but two that I’ve heard mentioned repeatedly are Phoenix (Jared Dudley, picks) and Toronto (Jose Calderon).  Both deals would appear to be salary dumps. Sheridan Hoops: Phil Jackson tells Chris Sheridan that he has “no intention” to coach another game of NBA basketball.  Congratulations, PJ Carlesimo.  Sorry, everybody else. 8 Points, 9 Seconds: Paul George was an absolute beast against the Heat last night, scoring 29 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.  He was so good, in fact, that ESPN’s resident Pacers blog gave him a grade of A+ for his efforts.  Let me assure you, folks, George was insanely impressive in this game.  Remember when LeBron basically shut him down for the duration of a playoff series?  Yeah, well, George was dribble driving right by him, posting him up… just doing all sorts of things.  Considering how well he’s played over the past month and half, this performance truly demonstrates the player he’s become. TMZ: Ty Lawson tells an amateur camera man that he told Kobe “it is what it is,” and that the Nuggets were “going to bust [the Lakers'] ass, and they gon’ deal with it.”  While the Nuggets did indeed bust the Lakers’ ass, I have a hard time believing that Ty Lawson said that to Kobe.  Mostly because Ty Lawson never would’ve lived to tell that tale. The Awesome Boston: New, more exciting footage of Carmelo Anthony’s postgame spat with Kevin Garnett has emerged.  In this clip, the two players can he heard hurling obscenities at each other over a crowd of 15 or 20 people, rather than just standing around doing nothing.  What, you didn’t think they were actually going to lay a hand on one another, did you?  C’mon son!  These two are as fugazy as they come. The Point Forward: Andre Iguodala, Chuck Hayes, Nick Young, Jared Dudley, and Will Barton talk about some fun stuff, such as their recollections of their first slam dunks.  According to Swaggy P, his first jam came at the expense of his big brother. Twitter: Well, fans, so much for that Gerald Green vs James White dunk contest.  According to Zach Lowe, Gerald ain’t gonna enter.  This, to me, is a disappointment of catastrophic proportions.  WE WERE THIS CLOSE!
