Odds & Ends

LeBron James is getting rave reviews for his acting performance in Trainwreck. On the other hand, here are the worst movies featuring NBA players ... Santa Claus can't pitch ... The Padres and Giants had a baseball fight Tuesday night (lots of words, no punches thrown) ... A breakdown of Tuesday night's NBA Player Awards, at which ​James Harden was named MVP... Stephen A. Smith is back in the center of controversy for his "Black Lives Matter" tweet ... Capitals prospect Stanislav Galiev is on vacation in Vietnam, where he decided to eat a cobra's beating heart ...  Steve Spurrier has a great marijuana policy for his players ... Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo hit for the cycle against the Rockies​ ... The Cubs have a new star ... An emoji movie is in the works ... The AP is set to to put nearly 17,000 hours of archival news footage on YouTube ... If Marvel superheroes were dogs ... When Twitter takes on Facebook.
