* Finally, the man speaks. Robert Sacre, where do those celebration dance moves come from? “I learned a little bit from Yosemite Sam. He has those guns shooting up in the air, but other than that, really I just freestyle and go with it and get super excited when they make a great play.” Fair enough.

* A letter to Royce White.

* Some lady freaks out when she touches a sweat-soaked Kris Humphries as he exits the court.
