The Second-Most Hated Man In Sports

Besides Alex Rodriguez, is there an athlete in sports today whom other athletes continually dump on more than Dwight Howard? His teammate Kobe Bryant, who has taken shots at the center, said recently that the team doesn't have time to wait for Howard's injured shoulder to heal. Guard Steve Nash is reportedly angry and frustrated with Howard. And Howard thinks opposing players are trying to further injure his banged-up shoulder.

Did you ever hear the one about former Ohio State coach Woody Hayes letting a turtle bite his penis?

Dad Files

Mike Bibby played for six teams over a solid 14-year NBA career. But now he's just like any other dad getting kicked out of his son's high school basketball game.

All of your 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit content launched on SI.com last night. In past years, I've always used this day to name a Rookie of the Year. It's really not an official award, unless you believe Kate Upton's Wikipedia page, but it's one I take seriously. So, without further ado, the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Rookie of the Year is ... South African beauty Natasha Barnard. Congratulations, Natasha. I know you're honored.

UPDATE: Apparently there is an OFFICIAL "Rookie of the Year" contest this year in which you can cast your vote (on the left side of this page). This doesn't change the fact that Barnard is the Hot Clicks Rookie of the Year.

The New Gangnam Style

I haven't even posted any of these Harlem Shake videos yet, and I feel like I already have to ban them from Hot Clicks because the craze is out of control. We have the University of Georgia swim team, the St. Leo University baseball team and the Dallas Mavericks all with their own versions of the dance.
