Kevin Durant did this to Brendan Haywood in Oklahoma City's 106-100 win over Dallas on Thursday night. (The photo is more impressive than the actual dunk, which needed Marv Albert to call it.) Far be it for me to give Nike advice, but if the company is smart, it will use this image on the Kevin Durant Backpacks it plans on selling now that the superstar has made the accessory a staple of his postgame press conferences.
Another Must-See Photo
My sympathy to anyone who sat behind this Mavericks fan at last night's game.
Now This Is A Great Sideline Report
Call me immature all you want, but I love it when a curse words goes out on live TV, which happened during last night's Rockies-Phillies game. The fun, however, doesn't come from the actual word. It comes from the reaction of the announcers who get all tongue-tied and nervous as if some big crime was committed. Of course, all this could be avoided if they didn't interview drunk fans during the game. But what do I know.

Novak Djokovic hasn't lost this year and he's ranked No. 2 in the world going into the French Open, which begins Sunday. More important than that, however, is the fact that his girlfriend, Jelena Ristic, is a stunner.

The Hot Clicks Podcast
Those Guys Have All The Fun, a 700-plus page book about the history of ESPN, hits bookstores on Tuesday, May 24. I was lucky enough to get a copy Wednesday right before SI.com media reporter Richard Deitsch and I interviewed author James Andrew Miller. (For tidbits from the book, scroll through my Twitter feed.) Miller talks about what went into his reporting, the feuds that are highlighted throughout the book (Chris Berman vs. Tony Kornheiser is a doozy), the debacle known as The Decision, how Deadspin is like "crack cocaine" to ESPNers and much more. You can listen below, download it on iTunes or download it to your mp3 player.

The hot sport in Japan these days is Botaoshi. The object is to protect your pole (get your minds out of the gutter) for a couple of minutes before the other team can pull it down. If the owners continue to lock out the players, maybe this can fill the NFL void in the winter.
