• Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has led the 49ers to the Super Bowl and the NFC Championship Game in his two seasons as a starter, but is he worth a huge contract extension this offseason?

• All you 49ers fans who insist Alex Smith would have led the 49ers to victory over the Seahawks, isn’t it time to let it go?

• Speaking of disappointed 49ers fans and all their second-quessing, it could be worse – you could be Raiders fans, right?

• When Kings rookie guard Ben McLemore was picked for the NBA dunk contest, did you also wonder why?

• All-Stars Paul George, Damian Lillard and John Wall also are in the dunk contest, but will anyone confuse them with Michael Jordan, Dominique Wilkins and Clyde Drexler, who went at it in 1988?

• When the Kings whipped the Bulls on Monday, did anyone else notice that guard Isaiah Thomas took just nine shots and didn’t attempt a three-pointer?

• When an official made that awful offensive foul call on Toronto’s Kyle Lowry, how many Kings fans immediately thought, “Well, we finally got a break?”

• With reports of rancid drinking water, unfinished roads, construction delays, terrorism threats, corruption and more, can anyone explain why Sochi is hosting the Winter Olympics?

• Speaking of the Olympics, isn’t it lame that the events start before the Opening Ceremony?

• When one of the five lighted snowflakes failed to turn into a ring early in Friday’s Opening Ceremony, who didn’t think, uh-oh, more #SochiProblems?
