J.R. Smith Dunks All Over Gary Neal

Even after watching him scrape defenders off the sole of his sneakers numerous times in his career, I'm still occasionally taken aback by some of the things J.R. Smith is capable of doing in the air. About ten minutes ago he added yet another extraordinary play to his already prolific highlight reel with an absolutely filthy dunk against the Spurs. Taking off some eleven feet from the bucket, "Swish" threw home an emphatic two-hander all over a hapless Gary Neal, who seemed as surprised as the rest of us that Smith had even attempted - let alone completed - a dunk from that distance.

[vid] Glen Davis: Ticket Stub Is Coming Back

How do you replace The Big Ticket? Glen Davis said he's got the answer in his back pocket: The Ticket Stub. 

That's the nickname Davis coined for himself during last year's playoffs, when he filled in admirably for an injured Garnett. Davis averaged 15.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game, while helping Boston get within one game of the Eastern Conference finals. (The Celtics fell to eventual conference champion Orlando in seven games in the second round.) 

While Garnett and the Celtics awaited official word from the league about whether Boston's starting forward would be suspended for his role in Saturday's Game 1 fourth-quarter melee -- the league made the one-game ban official Sunday night -- Davis said he'd be ready to once again fill Garnett's shoes. 

"Well, if Kevin's out, I have to bring back the Ticket Stub," said Davis. "You all know the Ticket Stub, you all saw the Ticket Stub last year. If [Garnett is] gone, I've got the Ticket Stub right in my back pocket and I can bring it out."

[vid] Cavs Fans Buy Billboard Asking LeBron to Stay

Cavaliers fans have designed and purchased a billboard encouraging LeBron James to remain with Cleveland.

Glen Infante's website, has more than 7 thousand loyal followers.

"There's a campaign where New Yorkers were gathering money to buy LeBron a gift when he arrives in New York And a lot of members were real angry about that and we wanted to respond to that," said Infante.

"It's hard to contact him, send him an email, or even a big sign in the crowd, you know. You only get a small chance to see that sign. But a billboard, he'll definitely see a billboard on the streets of Cleveland."
