The Afternoon Killer

Other celebs in attendance to celebrate were Allan Iverson, Alonzo Mourning, Austin Nichols, Bill Maher, Bob Sagat, Champ Bailey, Charles Oakley, Chris Lighty, Constantine Maroulis, DJ Clue, Dwyane Wade, Eriq La Salle, 50 Cent, Fred Durst, Ice-T, Jermaine Dupri, Jerome Bettis, Jessica White, John Cusack, Kenan Thompson, Lennox Lewis, Luis Guzman, Luke Perry, Macy Gray, Michael Buffer, Michael Ealy, Rah Digga, Robert Shapiro, Salt n Pepa, Tommy Hilfiger, Young Jeezy, and Willy McGuinness."

--Here's the lamest actors to ever get action figures made. Seriously, what kid plays with a Vince Vaughn figure?

--Mark Cuban parties (in Pittsburgh?) with a backdrop of the obligatory ESPN split-screen argument. Update: Eagle-eyed reader Keith says that looks like a Hi-Tops cup in the Blog Maverick's hand, which would, in fact, place Cuban in the Burgh in this photo.
