Jimmy Butler Loves Taylor Swift

Jimmy Butler made the media rounds Wednesday and had some interesting comments about the Derrick Rose trade. More importantly, he (once again) professed his love for Taylor Swift. In a related story, I've been holding onto this great Butler GIF for the last year (we spent a day with him and SI Swimsuit model Erin Heatherton), so I figured this was as good a time as any to make it the Hot Clicks lead item. 

Who's More Bored?

I know school is out and there's not much to do, but wondering who is more bored: The Michigan football players who recreated The Lion King or the dude who filled his pool with 6,800 Coca-Cola and Mentos before jumping in. I vote for the Coke pool guy.

NBA Meets Pro Wrestling

Here's a bunch of NBA stars reimagined as professional wrestlers. My favorite is Tim Duncan as The Undertaker.

I've been writing Hot Clicks for nearly three years and never featured Rachel Mortenson as LLOD. I apologize. (Click here for full-size gallery.)

Perry Ellis Signs Perry Ellis

The clothing company signed the NBA rookie in a move that makes too much sense. In honor of this pairing, we came up with nine other perfect athlete-sponsor matches.

Who's Excited For Rio?

Parts of a mutilated body washed up recently on a Rio de Janeiro beach, right near the Olympic beach volleyball venue.

This mom has way too much time on her hands.

Odds & Ends

I like this sperm donation prank Ken Griffey Jr. once pulled on A-Rod ... Noah Syndergaard poked fun at a beat reporter (in a good-natured way) and now I'm a Syndergaard fan ... Congrats to GM Peter Chiarelli, who has managed to trade the No. 1 and 2 picks from the 2010 NHL Draft (and lost both trades) ... Hackers stole a NASCAR team's data and held it for ransom​ ... Everyone was wrong about the late Buddy Ryan's age ... Here's what the NHL and cigarette companies have in common ... The Independent League Sonoma Stompers signed two female players
