1.) Ray Allen holds the record for most blocks by an American in a single Olympics. He had 11 in Sydney back in 2000.
Also, John Stockton led the 1996 United States team in swats.
2.) From 1970-1986, there were no back-to-back NBA champions. From 1987-2002, only the Spurs (1999) did not win back-to-back.
In case you missed it, the Lakers (87-88), Pistons (89-90), Bulls (91-93), Rockets (94-95), Bulls (96-98), and Lakers (2000-02) all went at least two straight.

Damian Lillard, PG, Portland Trail Blazers ($8,300)
Dame has been off with his shot lately and is facing a stout defensive team in Memphis. That doesn't mean you shouldn't consider him.

2. Elfrid Payton (PG, Orland Magic) and Dennis Smith Read More

Seen Better Days?
Pau Gasol, San Antonio Spurs
Gasol may not be the efficient offensive machine he once was but he is still a solid power forward with multi-category contribution potential. Playing at a shade under 32 minutes last Read More
The NBA boasts an 11-game slate Friday so if you're playing Daily Fantasy Basketball, here are some of the names to watch out for.
Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks for November 13:
Russell Westbrook, PG ($11,600)- The price tag is hefty, sure, but the production is, too. Kevin Durant will be out for at least a week with a strained hamstring so it's up to Russ to lead Oklahoma City over the Philadelphia 76ers, who by the way, is the sixth-worst team in the league in stopping opposing Read More
