-Shaq on JJ Hickson’s career-high night: “You could be Cedric Ceballos.” Interesting.

-Stat guru Jon Nichols, writing for the New York Times, points out that LeBron’s stats decrease across the board when Shaq is in the game, particularly his foul drawing rate. There are some lurking variables in there, and the Cavs seem to be getting better and better with Shaq on the floor. Still worth a look, though.

-Yahoo! Sports has an early look at the all-star reserves. No Cavs, which is about what I thought.

-LeBron’s first McDonald’s ad will air during the Super Bowl.

-The latest Amare rumors post lists six possible destinations for him. The Cavaliers are not one of those destinations. Alas.

-Alright, until later.

-UPDATE: Via Windhorst’s Twitter, Delonte West’s trial date has been pushed back from Febuary 18th to April 26th.
