Hello friends, Andrew Doughty from Next Impulse Sports with Weekend Hot Clicks. Feel free to follow me on Twitter for daily bits and quips.


NBA Draft Aftermath

We're two days removed from the NBA draft but draft chatter is still abundant. First, reports surfaced that Carmelo Anthony is pissed over the Porzingis pick and the state the Knicks. Then he began dispelling those rumors by dealing direct blows to fans and IT. WAS. AWESOME. Meanwhile, poor Porzingis was booed at Mets game when throwing out first pitch. Further south, fellow big man draftee Frank Kaminsky wasn't making any friends in North Carolina after his BBQ comments. But at least it's never too early for fans of both the Knicks and Hornets to look ahead to 2016 with lottery projections.


Bob Costas

Everyone is still bewildered by Bob Costas' remarks toward Cubs reliever Pedro Strop during last night's Cubs-Cards game. The longtime broadcaster went way over the line in criticizing his poor performance and is under serious fire for his actions.


Celebratory Reactions

Reactions to the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage ruling dominated social media on Friday and into the weekend, with loads of celebrities taking to Twitter to show their support for the landmark decision.


Lovely Lady of the Day

This weekend's LLOD is crowd favorite Alex Morgan, who helped the Americans advance to the WWC semifinals with a victory over China on Friday night. (Click here for full-size gallery)


Bat Man

Here's a feel-good story: Danny Luckett is retiring from Louisville Slugger, where he spent 46 years turning bats for MLB players. This is the same guy that Hank Aaron at the time of HOF induction, saying, "I should've taken Danny into the Hall of Fame with me." Watch this awesome tribute to the Bat Man.


Awwww

An adorable elderly couple was caught on tape practicing their celebratory high-five routine at the Tigers game.
