Evan Turner Runs Out Of Gas
It's been a rough few months for Pacers guard Evan Turner. He was traded from the Sixers to the Pacers in hopes that he could prop up a low-scoring bench, but instead was labeled as selfish and received seven DNP-CD (did not play-coach's decision) in the playoffs. But yesterday was the low point as his Ferrari ran out of gas on a freeway and he had to call his old teammate P.J. Hill to come pick him up. Turner wasn't the only NBA player with car problems. Carlos Boozer checked out the new Lamborghini Aventador while visited a shop in Miami and discovered that 6-foot-9 men aren't made for Lamborghinis.
Things Look A Little Different Here

Alex Rodriguez has made a lot of enemies over the past couple years and the trend continues, this time in his luxurious Central Park apartment.

Don't Take Latrell Sprewell's Photo
I thoroughly enjoyed this little tale by Ryan Phillips of the Rumors and Rants blog. He was out in Milwaukee last night and happened to see Latrell Sprewell at a bar. He took Sprewell's photo to text a friend. That's when things got interesting.
Andy Murray: Dog Savior
Andy Murray was on his way to the All England Club to practice for Wimbledon when he came across a runaway labradoodle scurrying across the road. Murray coaxed the dog into his car, drove to a nearby dog park and called the owners, who were happy to retrieve their wandering pup. It's a busy week for Murray, who, in addition to rescuing dogs, guest-edited The Beano comic book in a tennis-themed issue.
From the SI Vault
A YouTube user decided to compile Shawn Kemp's 50 best dunks into one mashup video.
And any excuse to feature Kemp, especially this amazing shot from the 1991 Slam Dunk Contest, is something I can't resist. For more classic sports photos, visit the SI Vault on Twitter.
