Weekend Hot Clicks: NBA draft aftermath, Alex Morgan is LLOD
NBA Draft Aftermath
We're two days removed from the NBA draft but draft chatter is still abundant. First, reports surfaced that Carmelo Anthony is pissed over the Porzingis pick and the state the Knicks. Then he began dispelling those rumors by dealing direct blows to fans and IT. WAS. AWESOME. Meanwhile, poor Porzingis was booed at Mets game when throwing out first pitch. Further south, fellow big man draftee Frank Kaminsky wasn't making any friends in North Carolina after his BBQ comments. But at least it's never too early for fans of both the Knicks and Hornets to look ahead to 2016 with lottery projections.
Everyone is still bewildered by Bob Costas' remarks toward Cubs reliever Pedro Strop during last night's Cubs-Cards game. The longtime broadcaster went way over the line in criticizing his poor performance and is under serious fire for his actions.
Reactions to the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage ruling dominated social media on Friday and into the weekend, with loads of celebrities taking to Twitter to show their support for the landmark decision.
