Can You Spell "Kristaps Porzingis?"​

Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis has the potential to be a NBA superstar. Spelling his name correctly, however, is another story. We asked a bunch of NBA rookies to spell K-R-I-S-T-A-P-S P-O-R-Z-I-N-G-I-S. It did not go well. Gallery: The hardest names to spell in sports.

He's Back

Brandon Armstrong, whose NBA impressions have been the funniest part of summer, is back and taking aim at referee/drama queen Joey Crawford. If you missed it, here's Armstrong imitating James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Tim Duncan. My favorite remains Kobe Bryant.

Big Baby Gives the Lowdown on Matt Barnes's Obsession With Rihanna

Glen "Big Baby" Davis stopped by the SINow studio and discussed the recent Rihanna-Matt Barnes situation. If you're not up to speed, Barnes was interviewed by TMZ and insinuated that he's dating Rihanna. The singer got word of the interview and blasted Barnes on Instagram, using the dreaded #shesnotthatintoyou hashtag (among others) to convey her point. Big Baby's comment on the situation: "I think he likes her," Davis said. "I think he just had a big crush. He said a little too much. He has a crush. It's just a little high school fling thing. He's just obsessed with her. Like on the plane, he talks about her all the time. ... It was just something friendly, Rihanna didn't have to kill him like that."

Oscar Pistorius Out of Prison

Oscar Pistorius, the Paralympic gold medalist who was convicted of killing his girlfriend last year, will be released from prison Friday after serving just 10 months of his five-year sentence. He will serve the rest under house mansion arrest. South African sentencing guidelines rule non-dangerous prisoners should spend only one-sixth of a prison sentence behind bars.
