When Stephen Jackson and Matt Bonner were planning their joint birthday party, it can't have been easy to agree on a theme. But if there's one thing everybody can agree on, it's that Anchorman is a classic of American cinema. So the San Antonio Spurs teammates decided to have a viewing party, and act along with the film. In a great video interview with Spurs.com (which is absolutely worth four and a half minutes of your day to watch and you should do so right now), Captain Jack recounts his starring role as Ron Burgundy. He even played the jazz-flute solo, if he is to be believed. "I co-wrote 'Afternoon Delight,'" he says at one point. "I don't know if you knew that." USA Today Sports
