Who Has the Better Mustache?
The NBA rookies sat down for a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) and readers asked important questions about their choice of shampoo, NBA 2K rating and whether or not they've met Drake yet. My favorite exchange was when a fan asked Pistons rookie Spencer Dinwiddie if he has a better mustache then Stan Van Gundy. His response: "See, it's not even close. His argument is that his has been around a long time. But looks wise, it's all me." Can we just give him Rookie of the Year right now?
Kate Upton Shows Off Baseball Talent
I don't have a record of every time a fan in the stands has received a ball from a baseball player, but I'm willing to bet that nobody has ever made it look sexier than Kate Upton did last night (especially when Smooth Operator is the background music). Then again, not every fan has been on the cover of SI's MLB Playoff preview.

Scrabble Gets New Words
Scrabble's official dictionary has been updated to include 5,000 new words. So next time your grandma tells you "hashtag" and "beatbox" aren't words, you'll know better (and then will have to explain to her what those words actually mean).
From the SI Vault
Since entering the NBA nearly two decades ago, Kevin Garnett has been spotted emitting laughter approximately four times. OK, I made that up but it takes a special person to get the intense KG to unleash a genuine belly laugh. Brian Scalabrine, as this photo indicates, is one of those special people. "Veal" was at it again yesterday when he spoofed LeBron's "I'm Coming Home" essay to announce his return to Boston to call games for CSN. It even inspired me to look at old Scalabrine YouTube videos; this one is clearly the best. For more photos of 6-foot-9 redheads (and other athletes), visit the SI Vault on Twitter.
