1. Remember when Fergie performed that horrible rendition of the national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game back in February? You know, the one where she tried to turn the song into some sexy, sultry jazz number? 

If you recall, it was so bad she even apologized for the performance.

Basically, every person who had their hearing intact panned the performance, but for some bizarre reason, Fergie's ex-husband, actor Josh Duhamel, is angry at Draymond Green for laughing during the singer's butcher job.

In a recent interview Duhamel said, "I was pissed off at Draymond Green, first of all. I think he owed her an apology. I thought he was kind of a prick."


"Just because he knew the camera was on him. And he snickered about it. I just thought if he would've been a real man, he would've at least called her and said, 'Listen, I'm sorry that I caused all this.'"

Congrats to Josh Duhamel. He just unloaded one of the worst takes in the history of the world. Holy cow, everything he said there was amazingly bad. Let's count the ways:

A) Every single person who watched that peformance laughed and snickered throughout. It's absurd to single out Green.

B) Green didn't snicker because the camera was on him. He snickered because Fergie was trying to make people horny while singing the national anthem.

C) Draymond Green did not cause "all this." Fergie—and Fergie alone—caused "all this."

D) If everyone who laughed at Fergie had to tell her they were sorry, she'd stil, eight months later, be fielding apologies. Watch the clip below. EVERYONE was chuckling.

The amazing thing is that there are a million reasons you can bash Draymond Green, but it's ridiculous to call him out for this.

2. Well, here's some shocking news: A player who has won two NBA titles and makes $26.5 million isn't impressed by a dumb billboard. Who would've guessed?

3. You're either going to hate this or love this. No in between. I love it.
