In Tuesday's Hot Clicks, we rank the best Kellys in sports history and profile the lovely Bo Koehler.
Ranking the best Kellys in sports history
Boston knocked out Washington in Game 7 Monday night, thanks to 26 points for Kelly Olynyk. This inspired us to rank the top Kellys in sports history because that's very important journalism. Also of note: TNT got excited and busted out this graphic way too early ... Bradley Beal had 38 points and one awful flop ... Ian Mahinmi is a lot stronger than Isaiah Thomas (and how was no foul called?) ... Twitter was very excited about Olynyk's performance, as were Celtics fans who went after Wizards superfan Mia Khalifa.
Oral history of the 1997 Knicks-Heat brawl
Great story on one of the best playoff series in NBA history. I will never forget little Jeff Van Gundy clinging helplessly to Alonzo Mourning's leg, of which Van Gundy says, "I’m not trying to be funny — but I understand why some criminals plead temporary insanity. I truly have no recollection."
I don't even have a joke
Lovely Lady of the Day
I spent some quality time with Bo Koehler Monday during SI Swimsuit casting and told her to send me some photos so I could make her LLOD. When I got home a few hours later, the photos were waiting in my inbox. I love the effort and follow through. She gets today's honors (click for full-size gallery).
Cristiano Ronaldo is living the good life
A Fox TV executive is considering a How I Met Your Mother reunion. I used to love that show until the awful series finale. Now I can't even watch it. So hard pass on a reunion.
Hot Clicks Giveaway
Cell phone cases are very important in 2017, and if you're not using Caseology, you're doing it wrong. As I'm sure you know, Caseology is known for amazingly slim yet extremely durable cases, with an elegant build that embodies a minimalist aesthetic. As the top-rated case on Amazon and coming in at a low price point (between $20-$35), they are available for iPhones, Samsung Galaxys, Google Pixels, LGs and Motorolas. I have three cases to give away and I'll send to the 100th, 200th and 300th person to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name the fifth best Kelly in sports history. The answer is in our ranking of sports Kellys I linked to earlier. Please make the subject line "Caseology."

Odds & ends

The guy from Million Dollar Arm is now trying to be a WWE superstar ... Looks like Johnny Manziel had a fun time in Mexico ...

Bill Cosby thinks racism "may very well" be a factor in his rape allegations.
