There were many outstanding individual performances from the first weekend of the NBA playoffs. Chris Paul led the Hornets to a win against the Lakers with 33 points and 14 assists. Kevin Durant torched the Nuggets for 41 points in Oklahoma City's victory on Sunday. And Dwight Howard put up 46 points and 19 rebounds in a losing effort to the Hawks on Saturday. But there wasn't a more impressive effort than the 39-point, six-rebound, six-assist output (watch his highlight reel here) from Derrick Rose, who led the Bulls to a come-from-behind 104-99 win against the Pacers. In fact, Rose was so good, Indiana's Danny Granger compared him to a crazy stalker ex-girlfriend.
More NBA Highlights
The end of the Celtics-Knicks game was wild. Kevin Garnett clearly tripped Knicks guard Toney Douglas to free Ray Allen for his typical clutch game-winning three-pointer, but there was no call. ... Memphis' Shane Battier hit the winning shot against San Antonio on Saturday and then became a father. ... Kevin Durant did this.
MLB Weekend Highlights
Huge props to Mets third baseman David Wright, who played catch with a couple of young fans before Saturday's game against the Braves. ... You've never seen a balk like the one Justin Verlander committed on Friday night. ... Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester came very close to getting hit with a broken bat on Sunday.
Photo Gallery Of The Day
Imogen Thomas :: Ferdaus Shamim/WireImage
British model and TV personality Imogen Thomas is involved in quite a controversy with a "world-famous Premier League" soccer player. Thomas says she and the unnamed man had an affair for seven months, but his lawyers have served her with a gag order and she can't name the guy.
What Color Is That?
Marv Albert and Bobby Valentine are currently sporting the same odd hair color (and style). I put out an all points bulletin on Twitter last night for photo proof so I could share photographic proof with Hot Clicks Nation. Luckily, @bubbaprog came through with the evidence.

The Train Is Coming Video Of The Day
This video was sent in by Jorge Morales, of Lubbock, Texas, with no explanation or comment. I have no idea where it's from. I just know it's one of the more bizarre things I've ever seen.
