An NBA Referee Is Featured on a JDate Billboard That's Hanging in Times Square

Do you know what LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Deron Williams, Amar'e Stoudemire, Kevin Durant, and NBA referee Marat Kogut have in common? Well, believe it or not, they've all been featured on billboards hung up in Times Square at one time or another. But while most of the players mentioned here have appeared on billboards commissioned by the NBA, Kogut is currently featured on a Times Square billboard that was purchased recently by a much different kind of company. That company? JDate!

That's right. Kogut apparently met his wife Mariana on JDate and eventually got married to her. So JDate is celebrating the success of their relationship on a gigantic billboard that's hanging in Times Square. Check it out above. Kinda creepy, right?
