The Ghost of Jordan

If you haven't read Lee Jenkins' cover story on LeBron James, do so now. It gives a glimpse into what the Cavs star has been doing since the Finals and his quest to surpass Michael Jordan as the game's all-time best player. This marks LeBron's 26th time on the SI cover (see gallery above). The one from June 2013 is my favorite.

Draymond Green's Next Career Move

Life is about turning negative experiences into positive ones, and that's exactly what Draymond Green can do if he accepts Vivid Video's offer to be America's next great adult film star.

Which State Has the Most Olympians?

Nancy Gomez: P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Nancy Gomez is not only a model but also a photographer. Lots of talent there. She is this afternoon's LLOD (click for full-size gallery). 

Hot Clicks Giveaway

As you likely know, one of the top PGA TOUR stops on the East Coast is back with the Travelers Championship taking place from Aug. 4 to 7 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn. So be sure to tune into Golf Channel and CBS this weekend to catch all the action. As an added bonus, the tournament has provided me with some swag to help spread the word. I have a signed Bubba Watson hat and golf ball and a signed Kevin Streelman pin flag to give away. I'll give prizes to the 50th person (signed hat), 150th (signed golf ball) and 250th (signed pin flag) who can tell me (via email at andy_gray@simail.com) the name of the NBA player who delivered bottled water to the citizens of Flint, Mich. The answer was in A.M. Clicks. Please make the subject line Travelers Championship.

Short Athlete Meets Tall Athlete

Spotted in Rio: 6-foot-8 volleyball player David Lee standing next to 4-foot-8 gymnast Simone Biles. The picture is everything, but it's still not my favorite short athlete-tall athlete meetup. That distinction belongs to Manute Bol and Muggsy Bogues.

Those Crazy Kids

This game of Chicken is a lot different than the Chicken I played as a kid.
