Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (27) gets sprayed with water by Donovan Mitchell after winning the game against Atlanta at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City on Friday, Feb.1, 2019.

Former Nickelodeon star Kenan Thompson says he and co-star Kel Mitchell once sold a pair of Super Bowl tickets and spent the proceeds at Chili’s.

Thompson told “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon that Nickelodeon had given them tickets, but because they had no other money to spend at the game, they opted to cash out and then pig out.

Just wondering, when has the sizzling fajita plate not been more interesting than the Super Bowl?

MAKE IT PLAIN

A USA Today story called Maroon 5’s halftime show “a white-bread performance from one of America’s most generic groups.”

Which nicely matched the Patriots’ white-bread win in one of America’s most generic Super Bowls.

THE FIRST WITHIN

Rudy Gobert says coaches who didn’t vote him on the All-Star team were aware of the ramifications.

“They know it. They know what they did,” he said. “They’re not stupid. They know.”

They know they’re going to have a jumbo serving of Rudy to contend with the rest of the season.

D FREE

Gobert fears not being named an All-Star sends a message to kids “that defense doesn’t matter.”

Cleveland Cavaliers: “OK … so … what’s your point?”

WEEP NOT

Golden State’s Draymond Green trolled Gobert after the Jazz center tearfully described his pain.

“I guess I should cry too … no Charlotte?” Green tweeted, using weeping emojis.

Because, as everyone knows, Green never lets emotions get the best of him.

COFFEE CALL-OUT

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz apologized to Seattle for selling the Sonics, allowing them to move to Oklahoma City.

He said in his book he “will forever be deeply sorry” about the Sonics leaving Seattle.

Sorry enough to lower the cost of a cinnamon latte?

CRASH COURSE

A Utah man is accusing Gwyneth Paltrow of crashing into him on the ski slopes and leaving him injured. But her legal team says the man actually hurtled into her.

Comment on this story

Terry Sanderson alleges that after the collision, Paltrow skied off even though he had four broken ribs.

In other words, he’s saying he’s not Iron Man.

GONE WITH THE WIND

A study says one-third of young Chicagoans want to leave the city.

Maybe Jimmy Butler wasn’t so wrong after all.

KANT-ANKEROUS

After going nine days without playing, Knicks center Enes Kanter entered a game by kissing the court at Madison Square Garden, and following it up with an air ball.

Still, it wasn’t nearly as bad a whiff as when he demanded a trade — which he got — then trashed the Jazz anyway.
