File this under "only at All-Star Weekend": Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Rev. Jesse Jackson were on the same commercial flight leaving New Orleans to return to Boston today. No word on whether they discussed the Celtics missing out on trading for DeMarcus Cousins.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Anthony Davis is happy about the Cousins trade. Since Christmas, he's mostly played the Center position, but he's more effective at the 4-spot.

All NBA rules designed to keep stars in place can be subverted if stars take less $ or if team willing to take less in trade 4 stars(Kings)

Sources say Mavs' approach to deadline isn't impacted by DeMarcus Cousins deal. The Mavs won't pull the plug on fighting for West's final playoff spot. That doesn't necessarily mean the Mavs won't make a trade, but there will not be a fire sale with Dallas veterans.

Really was a fantastic All-Star weekend, big 👍🏼 to New Orleans & to the NBA. I'm almost considering asking for a trade to the Pelicans too.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Russell Westbrook leads the NBA in points scored (1,771). That's the most points scored for any player at the All-Star break since Nate "Tiny" Archibald scored 1,810 points before the break in 1972-73.
