Tuesday's P.M. Hot Clicks: Engelika Padilla; Scenes From NBA Rookie Shoot

Tuesday August 9th, 2016

Scenes from the NBA Rookie Shoot

Every year, NBA rookies gather in the summer for their rookie photo shoot (see gallery above). Last year, Hot Clicks fill-in and Miami Heat prospect Rohan Nadkarni covered the event for SI. Anyhow, this year didn't disappoint. Jaylen Brown channeled Dee Brown, Buddy Hield showed his #Phelpsface and DeAndre Bembery showed off an all-star afro. Most importantly, a good time was had by all.

Where Are They Now?

As Hard Knocks enters its 15th season, Uproxx takes a look at what the show's most memorable characters are doing today. Did you know Bobby Sippio is awaiting trial for attempted murder, kidnapping and armed robbery of his girlfriend’s brother?

You Know Who Should be the Jets' New Offensive Coordinator?

Hint: He'd do a pretty, pretty, pretty good job calling plays.

Engelika Padilla: P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

I had never heard of Engelika Padilla until I saw her featured on the Heyman Hustle website and it's safe to say I'm a big fan. She is this afternoon's LLOD (click for full-size gallery). 

Hot Clicks Giveaway

The summer is nearly over but that doesn't mean grilling season has to end. Just ask our friends at Kenyon. The SilKEN Grill is perfect for entertaining year-round, whether for tailgates, parties or going to the beach. I also recommend the Revolution Grill, which is "kickin’ gas and takin’ names," according to Kenyon's website. As you probably guessed, I have one of each grill to give away. I'll send the SilKEN to the 100th and the Revolution to the 200th person who emails me (andy_gray@simail.com) the name of the minor league baseball team that hosted "Better Call Saul Night" last weekend. The answer was in A.M. Clicks. Please make the subject line "Grill."

Reunited and It Feels So Good

Congrats to Argentina's Emiliano Grillo, who was finally reunited with his lost golf clubs.
