Reason No. 12,814 why I love the NBA: I took my daughter to the Cavs-Clippers game two weeks ago and she sat on my lap for the first three quarters. When Ruben Patterson entered the game, I found myself holding onto her even more tightly than usual. Let's make sure we add this to the next round of "Where Amazing Happens" commercials. "Where the chance to root for a registered sex offender happens."

That reminds me, my buddy House and I were on the phone last week trying to come up with the funniest images that could ever appear in a YouTube parody of the "Where Amazing Happens" commercial. We didn't realize that some YouTubers had already taken the concept and run with it, but here's the 30-second parody that I would have spliced together if I had the technological savvy:

(Start on a picture of Tim Donaghy.)

"Where crooked referees happen."

(A picture of Jerome James on the Knicks bench.)

"Where stealing money happens."

(A picture of the Artest Melee.)

"Where paying spectators getting punched happens."

(A picture of Stephon Marbury's SUV.)

"Where a truck party happens."

(A picture of Brad Miller wearing cornrows.)

"Where white guys who think they're black happens."

(A picture of Dwyane Wade not getting fouled by a Dallas player.)

"Where referees deciding a championship happens."

(A picture of Vince Carter sullenly sitting on the Raptors' bench.)

"Where quitting on your team happens."

(Finally, a picture of the NBA logo.)

"Where Amazing Happens."
