Ugliest Jerseys in NBA History

"Pistol" Pete Maravich was one of the most exciting players to watch in NBA history, but the puke-green Hawks uniforms of the early '70s were doing him no favors. Check out the rest of our choices above for ugliest uniforms in NBA history (click here for the full-size version).

Bizarro Back to the Future

It's hard to imagine Back to the Future without Michael J. Fox. As you may know, Marty McFly was originally played by Eric Stoltz, but he was replaced by Fox five weeks into filming because it wasn't working out. Here are photos of Stoltz's scenes before he was given the heave ho by director Robert Zemeckis.

Important Cheerleader Calendar News

Lots going on in the world of cheerleader calendars. Last week, the Cowboys visited Cancun for their annual shoot while the Jets Flight Crew headed to Turks and Caicos. The Patriots, meanwhile, have been holding cheerleader auditions all week and posting the action on Instagram. The L.A. Kings Ice Girls are shooting their calendar in Malibu, which produced this memorable GIF.

Chicken Wings with J.R. Smith

In one of the better promotions of the NBA season, the Cavs held a contest in which fans threw rubber chickens at a target on the court. The winner got to eat chicken wings with J.R. Smith. I can't think of anyone with whom I'd rather eat wings.
