Kevin Durant named Western Conference Player of the Month for January.
KD not only got a new puppy, (who he should name MVP), he also earned another award to add to his mantle, his third Player of the Month award in a row after averaging 35.9 ppg on 54.9% shooting from the field, 6.1 rpg, 6.1 apg, 1.6 spg, and almost a block per game in 38.3 mpg in the month of January.

The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
