•Shaquille O'Neal showed up in Philly to watch himself in Comcast's 3D holiday show. The Cavs are wondering if they can't trot out the 3D CNN Shaq hologram for the second half of the season.
•Kobe Bryant scored the last seven points of the game, including a buzzer-beating jumper in overtime to push the Lakers over the Bucks. And somewhere, Bill Plaschke is furiously writing a column saying he should have passed more.
•A Free Press columnist makes the argument that the Lions should trade Calvin Johnson, and he keeps a straight face when he says that WR is one of the easiest positions to fill in the draft. Apparently Matt Millen is an unperson, and the Lions' draft history has always been doubleplusgood.

•Oh lord. Every Marlins home run in their new stadium will be celebrated with "an explosion of color, lasers, pelicans and at least one jumping marlin." Oh by the way, this little country fish jamboroo will cost $2.5 million, or about how much it would have cost them to keep their closer.
