R. Kelly is singing the national anthem Tuesday night at the Brooklyn Nets game, which is great. BUT BEFORE THE GAME HE WAS MAKING 3-POINTERS WHILE WEARING A TURTLENECK WITH A CIGAR IN HIS MOUTH. I don't know why he has a cigar. Surely you can't smoke cigars inside the Barclays Center, but that doesn't even matter right now.

This is going to shoot straight up my list of greatest sports things I've seen. A turtleneck and a cigar, you guys. Gonna go listen to the remix to Ignition right away.
