Nick Jonas is feeling the brotherly love. The "Spaceman" singer took to the Saturday Night Live stage over the weekend for his first-ever time as host, and addressed how he's also performing as the musical guest.

"It is such an honor to be back at SNL," said Nick, who has served as a solo musical guest in 2016 and as part of the Jonas Brothers in 2019. "It has been a year to the day since I last performed live, so I thought I would ease into it by doing double duty as host and musical guest."

It's a big responsibility, so the singer and actor got some much appreciated support from his brother and bandmate Kevin Jonas.

"Honestly, I am so excited to be here to support you," Kevin yelled down from the balcony in the studio audience. 'Also, I got to ask, are we good? Because I see you are doing a lot of solo stuff. Are we still a band?"

"Of course," Nick assured him.

"Are you sure? Because, like, I just bought a house," Kevin added, with fear in his voice.

"The band is still together, I promise," Nick added with a smile.

Nick's new album, Spaceman, is his first solo project since the Jonas Brothers reunited in 2019, and his first solo album since 2016's Last Year Was Complicated.

Nick wrapped up his fun monologue with a musical tribute to Broadway -- which has been dark for nearly a year due to the pandemic. He was joined by Kenan Thompson, Kate McKinnon Cecily Strong and Beck Bennet as they sang a re-imagined version of Les Miserables' "Drink With Me," rewritten to address the challenges of lockdown life.

Saturday Night Live airs live coast-to-coast at 11:30 p.m. ET, 8:30 p.m PT on NBC.

Watch Kevin Durant put up 66 in legendary summer run at Rucker Park

A decade ago, Kevin Durant unleashed beast mode and gave local New Yorkers a highlight reel for the ages at the “mecca” of basketball, Rucker Park.

Maybe Kevin Durant was meant to be in New York from the beginning.

During the 2011 NBA lockout, the current Brooklyn Nets star toured different parks in New York to shoot some hoops and have fun. After all, who wouldn’t want the (at the time) reigning scoring NBA champion on their team?

His performance at Harlem’s Rucker Park, however, was something extra special. Rucker Park was famous for pickup games that included Wilt Chamberlain, Julius Erving, Allen Iverson, and Kobe Bryant. Before New York basketball fans saw the greats play in Madison Square Garden, they witnessed their blood, sweat, and tears in Rucker Park first, where it all started.

Like any public court, Rucker Park was the place for players to show off flashy moves, handles, and dribbling. But it was also a battleground for some of the fiercest competitors to leave it all out on the court — and what Durant did in the summer of 2011 was legendary.

Kevin Durant played one of the best games of his career.. at a park

In between the free-flowing trash talk and under the bright park lights, the towering 6-foot-10 forward may have stuck out like the neon on Miami Heat’s 2021 court, but no one could deny that Durant was in his natural element.

Playing for DC Power in the Entertainers Basketball Classic, Durant dropped 66 points — including four straight 3s at the end of the game — and looked as if he could burst into flames any moment. On his last shot, the crowd spilled onto the court and mobbed Durant. At 23 years old, the then-Oklahoma City scoring leader had already captured the hearts of many basketball fans, but at this moment, at this park, he was the people’s champion.

Durant remembered the game like it was yesterday, telling GQ magazine in a 2017 interview:

“I remember I just put my shorts and jersey on and my shoes, then I look up and it’s packed all the way to the gate, playing music, and seeing people in the high-risers across the street turning lights on and opening windows. It was like something out of a movie.”

Since Durant, a new generation of players have grown up on the courts at Rucker, from Kemba Walker to Isaiah Washington. Even if Durant doesn’t win a championship with the Brooklyn Nets (though they seem well-positioned to do so), he’ll still have one very fond New York memory he can look back on.
