Tuesday's P.M. Hot Clicks: Nina Daniele: Stephen Curry's Big Surprise
Steph Curry is in a Good Mood
By now you've heard Kevin Durant is taking his talents to Golden State. Lee Jenkins has a good piece on KD's legacy in Oklahoma City while Michael Rosenberg calls Durant signing with the Warriors the "ultimate cop-out." Steph Curry, meanwhile, couldn't be happier. He no longer has to be the face of the franchise and can focus on other things, like scaring kids at his hoops camp.
What is Wrong With Sean Avery?
The retired NHL agitator (and Vogue intern) is now going up to random homeless people, waking them from a dead sleep and asking for the time. He's recording it all on Snapchat so be sure to (not) follow him.

P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
Nina Daniele stopped by the office for a 2017 SI Swimsuit casting and it's safe to say not a lot of work got done when she strolled through the newsroom. She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).
Hot Clicks Giveaway
If there's one thing I know, it's old sports photos. So when I was asked if I'd do a giveaway for the new book, Who Shot Sports, it took me two seconds to say yes. The book, as you probably know, is guest curated by historian Gail Buckland and highlights sport photographers and their place in the history of photography (not just sports history). It features a number of Sports Illustrated photographers and includes photos dating to 1843. You should buy a copy right now. In the meantime, I have five copies to give away and will send to the 30th, 60th, 90th, 120th and 150th person to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the real name of the golfer who hit a bunch of hamburgers off a tee. The answer was in A.M. Clicks. Please make the subject line Who Shot Sports.

I Love the Internet (Reason No. 574)
A young boy lost his stuffed elephant. His parents didn't want to say it was lost so they told him it was traveling the world. That's where the internet stepped in.
