Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas admits he's pondered changing his jersey number to 11. Told he should embrace No. 4 considering the way he plays in the fourth quarter, Thomas smiled and said, "You're right. I've got a lot of thinking to do." Thomas chose 4 because 11 was taken when he got traded to Boston. It's currently vacant.

Teams like the Boston Celtics have gone all out on social media trying to get fans to vote for their players in this year's All-Star game. But one of Avery Bradley's college buddies took it to a new extreme. Nate Paul, a businessman in Austin, Texas, bought a digital billboard near the University of Texas encouraging fans to vote for Bradley — a UT product — for the All-Star game. Bradley lives in Austin and has been getting texts from friends and family about it. Said Bradley: "It's really neat. I thought it was cool that somebody showing that support. I live in Austin and going to UT, all the guys there, they support me. So I thought it was pretty cool." (photo: Twitter/@JOEYxFRESCO)
