1982 – Happy 30th birthday to Boston Celtics point guard Leandro Barbosa (@TheBlur_Barbosa) who is currently in his 10th NBA season. He won the Sixth Man of the Year Award for the 2006-07 season as a member of the Phoenix Suns. Barbosa is now providing some much-needed bench scoring for the Celtics in 2012-13.

1984 – Happy 28th birthday to Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut who is currently in his eighth NBA season. Two seasons ago, he led the NBA with 2.6 blocks per game. Unfortunately since beginning of 2011-12, Bogut has only played 16 games. He hopes to return soon from his ankle injury and be an interior presence for the Warriors.
