Wednesday's A.M. Hot Clicks
Gronk Being Gronk
It was only a matter of time. On Monday, Julian Edelman tweeted a photo of himself wearing a custom T-shirt of a shirtless Rob Gronkowski enjoying a night on the town. A mere day later, Gronkowski emerged with a T-shirt of Edelman's Gronkowski shirt. I'd normally think this is the greatest thing ever (I am from Boston, after all) but Macaulay Culkin and Ryan Gosling performed the same T-shirt trick last week.
Draft Lottery Fallout
Two major stories emerged from last night's NBA Draft Lottery. The first was the Cavs and the ridiculous luck they had to capture their third No. 1 overall pick in the last four years. The second was Mallory Edens, the 18-year-old daughter of Bucks owner Wesley Edens, and her sudden rise to fame. Also of note: A look at the winners and losers from last night's lottery, a Minnesota fan will now have to eat poop, and potential No. 1 pick Joel Embiid has interesting taste in music.

Lovely Lady Of The Day

Who the Hell is Dressing Dwyane Wade?
Someone Needs Decaf
Kim Brooks, the baseball coach at La Mirada (Calif.) High, lost his cool after a recent loss. And by lost his cool, I mean cursed out every player and acted like a complete psychopath.
From the SI Vault
Our friends at Next Impulse Sports had a good time ragging on the awful shirt that former Bulls forward Horace Grant wore to the Hornets headquarters on Tuesday. As this photo demonstrates, Grant (third from left) hasn't always been a bad dresser, unless you count Zubaz and a Malcolm X hat unstylish. Bill Cartwright is also rocking the Zubaz, while a very young J.A. Adande (far right) listens in. For more classic sports photos, visit the SI Vault on Twitter.

We're In Love With Mallory
That didn't take long. The newest internet sensation, Mallory Edens, now has her own song.
Thunder fans Kabir Iyengar and sister Karnika created the worst/greatest (I can't tell) rap song of all time.
Life Lessons From Charlie Day
The It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star delivered the commencement address at Merrimack College (his alma mater) and it was superb.
