This is something that you don’t see too often. Last night Lakers rookie Julius Randle broke his tibia in the game against the Houston Rockets.

If the future of the NBA involves headsets and offensive coordinators. This is probably what that post-apocalyptic Skynet NBA will look like.
In a new commercial from BBVA, Houston Rockets all-star James Harden plays three guys on a roof blindfolded in Madrid, Spain. While his old teammate Kevin Durant guides him past the defenders for an easy slam back in Oklahoma City via headset...

The two stars were part of the star-studded Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am, which also included Yao Ming, Morgan Freeman, Nicole Kidman, Ian Poulter, Justin Rose and more.
