NBA Action. It's Fantastic. 

Stephen Curry :: AP

In one of the best games this NBA season, the Warriors beat the Suns 107-106 on a last-second shot by Harrison Barnes. The excitement was too much to bear for one fan when Stephen Curry hit a three-pointer with 6.8 seconds left. The shot gave Golden State a one-point lead and provided the best fan celebration of 2015, courtesy of this little girl. It reminded me of the great "NBA Action, It's Fantastic" commercials of the 1980s.


What is Going on in Qatar?

This story is hard to believe. Migrant workers in Qatar, many in jeans and flip-flops, were forced to run a full "megamarathon" in an attempt to set a Guinness Record for most runners participating in a single marathon. They failed to set the record. In case you forgot, the International Trade Union Confederation released a report last year estimating that 4,000 migrant workers will die during construction for the 2022 World Cup.


Sauce Castillo Gets a Night

The Sacramento Kings will hold "Sauce Castillo Night" on Sunday. All fans in attendance will receive a special Sauce Castillo giveaway, and there will be "saucy fun all game long." Sauce Castillo is the new nickname of Nik Stauskas, courtesy of a closed captioning error.


Lovely Lady of the Day

Quick story. We had SI Swimsuit rookie Rose Bertram in the office last week to hang out and film an appearance for SINow. Then SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day told us that we should've put her in a sexy outfit and had her eat a chocolate Easter bunny. So I called Rose's agent and brought her back a few days later and filmed the sexiest Easter video this side of Kate Upton. You can see for yourself in the video section below. In the meantime, Rose earns today's LLOD honors (click here for full-size gallery). 


Kevin Garnett is a Great Teammate

Just ask former Celtics guard Lester Hudson, who has a couple scarves, skullies, a backpack, shoes and belts from Louis Vuitton to prove it.

Odds & Ends

The Final Four photo booth was a good idea ... Stanford captured the NIT Championship with a victory over Miami ... A wounded Iraq War veteran had his donated golf clubs stolen from the Army Navy Country Club last week ... I'm excited about Milwaukee's deep-fried nachos ... Mike Napoli's home run still hasn't landed ... This 345-pound offensive lineman has a six-pack ... The NHL shop has embraced the league's tank wars ... The iPad turns five today. Here are five ways you're still not taking full advantage of it ...

Rose Bertram = Best Easter Bunny Ever

As promised, here is Rose Bertram bringing the sexy back to Easter.

Stephen Curry/Chris Paul in Claymation

Stephen Curry's crossover on Chris Paul was so lethal that an Instagram user named azxd made a Claymation video of it.

While searching for a video to accompany the lead item, I came across this gem featuring Elton John, Wayne Gretzky and O.J. Simpson giving the NBA their stamp of approval.
