Two great things about Tuesday night's preseason game between the New York Knicks and the New Jersey Nets: We learned that Amar'e Stoudemire(notes) does not mind having the top of his head touched — in this matter, and in this matter alone, he and Adrian Beltre are dissimilar — and we learned that Danilo Gallinari(notes) is fascinated by the texture of a non-coiffed human skull. The preseason's about learning, guys.

Ref: It was your elbow.
LeBron: Oh, that's right. My elbow is flaring up again.
Ref: Other elbow.
LeBron: Oh, that's right ...
Runner-up, thelegendarygregostertag: "I don't want to hear you cryin' about your wrist when I saw you writing tweets over there on the bench. Repetitive strain is serious business, son."
