Friday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Savannah Jerson; Halfcourt Shot of the Year
Warning: Hot Clicks is now a Star Wars-free zone. There will be no mentions of the movie in any form. I hope you can survive.
We're on Day 7 of our 12 Nays of Christmas countdown and today we are focused on the Jimmy Graham-to-Seahawks trade. In retrospect, it was not the best move for Seattle as Graham struggled before a season-ending injury in Week 12. This 7-year-old girl knew the trade would be a disaster. (Nay 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.)
Busy Night in the NBA
Only three NBA games Thursday night, but lots of action. LeBron James had a sideline collision with Jason Day’s wife, Ellie, and she had to be taken out on a stretcher. James was later dunked on by Steven (not Scott) Adams, though the Cavs ended up winning 104-100. Kevin Durant pulled off a Dr. J baseline reverse in the loss. In Los Angeles, Kobe Bryant dunked for the first time all season but the Lakers still got blown out by the Rockets. Meanwhile in Toronto, DeMar DeRozan connected on a game-winning three-pointer as time expired, which was wiped out because Coach Dwane Casey called a timeout. The Raptors went on to lose in overtime.

Marshall from Parts Unknown wrote in requesting I feature Miss Hawaii 2013 Savannah Jerson. I did some reporting and reached out to Savannah, who sent in some photos and chimed in with her favorite team (Anaheim Ducks) and athlete (Odell Beckham Jr.). She is today's LLOD (click here for full-size gallery).
