With the Lakers set to unveil a statue of Shaquille O'Neal outside of Staples Center on Friday, head coach Luke Walton, who played with O'Neal during the 2003-04 season, was asked about his favorite Shaq memory. Walton said O'Neal once got sick of looking at his beat-up car, so he had his car customs shop take Walton's car and trick it out.

ESPN's BPI doesn't see the Jazz having a hard time beating the Knicks at home on Wednesday. A win would put them a full game ahead of the Clippers for the fourth seed in the West.

ESPN's BPI gives the Wizards better than a two-thirds chance of beating the Hawks at home on Wednesday. With a victory, they'd inch a half-game closer to the Celtics for the No. 2 seed in the East.

Even without Simmons and Embiid, Noel trade, Sixers are very competitive each night. True testament to their head coach.

Given there's little to lose, every underclassman who averaged over 10 points a game should enter NBA Draft. It's glorified job interview.

"I have three championships because of the triangle." Shaq suggests some Knicks are being stubborn and must adapt: es.pn/2mtrhiA

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Denver coach Mike Malone, who was an assistant in Cleveland early in LeBron James' career, offered an alternative solution to James sitting out one leg of a back-to-back completely: "Maybe just play the first and third quarters like camps in the summertime." Of course, that goes against James' claim that minutes don't really matter to him. Playing 25 minutes feels the same as playing 45 minutes because he goes through an entire day of game preparation followed by game recovery when he does suit up.
