Stormy Daniels and Giannis Antetokounmpo teamed up for a memorable episode of "60 Minutes."
1. Everyone knew about the Stormy Daniels interview that was taking place on 60 Minutes on Sunday night. Not everyone knew, though, that Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo was also featured on the long-running show—in a separate segment. The mashup of having an adult film star detail her relationship with the President of the United States and a feel-good story about one of the best NBA players was ripe for Twitter material (it also got 60 Minutes its best ratings in a decade). Throw in the fact that Jim Nantz had to continually promo the Stormy interview during the Duke-Kansas Elite Eight game that aired right before 60 Minutes and man, it was a great day on Twitter dot com, as you'll see below.
60 Minutes tonight has a story about somebody whose arousing videos I watch over and over again and also they interviewed a porn star— Rodger Sherman (@rodger_sherman) March 26, 2018
60 Minutes showing the giant hands of Giannis Antetokounmpo while Donald Trump is watching is hall of fame trolling.— Adam Best (@adamcbest) March 26, 2018
I’ve been half-listening to 60 Minutes while its on TV. Did Stormy Daniels criticize Hinkie for not drafting Giannis with the 13th pick in 2013 yet?— shamus (@shamus_clancy) March 26, 2018
A porn star just detailed an alleged affair (that allegedly included spanking) with the President of The United States on 60 Minutes & we are now segueing into a Giannis Antetokounmpo piece. Imagine reading this sentence 4 years ago.— Tyler Berg (@TBergKSTP) March 26, 2018
Detailed accounts about the president having a sexual encounter with a porn star & Giannis being awesome (with the last few mins of Duke losing in OT at the beginning)...this 60 Minutes ep is never leaving the DVR— Eric Felkey (@ericfelks) March 26, 2018
Never saw Michael Jordan or LeBron James follow up a story on the President getting spanked with a magazine that had his face on it by a porn star he was banging.— Ebo (@EboSays) March 26, 2018
Giannis Antetokounmpo is Top 5 in the NBA.
Don’t @ me.
The Bucks should invite Stormy Daniels to their next home game.— Ceferino Garcia (@ceferinog6181) March 26, 2018
She'd receive some sort of applause from the crowd
America, this may be the only day of our lives we'll get to hear Jim Nantz read a @StormyDaniels/@Giannis_An34 #60Minutes tease, so cherish it.— Jeff Eisenband (@JeffEisenband) March 25, 2018
"Stormy Daniels tells her story, plus the basketball sensation who's so talented, his fellow #NBA players call him, 'The Freak.'" pic.twitter.com/v265h3QLkD
I want this game to go 6 overtimes so a punchy Jim Nantz starts doing promos like, “After the game - if you loved Stormy Daniels in Good Will Humping, you’ll love her on 60 Minutes!”— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) March 25, 2018
You know every time Jim Nantz has to do a Stormy Daniels promo, it’s killing his soul.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) March 25, 2018
I’m also hopeful I get to hear Jim Nantz say: “We welcome those of you tuning in to see Stormy Daniela, we’re in overtime here in Omaha.”— Ryan Brown (@RyanBrownWJOX) March 25, 2018
2. Here's the link if you want to watch the full Giannis segment, which was excellent. Below are a couple of highlights.
3. I'm just gonna leave this tweet here.
4. Blow off work for six minutes today and watch this compilation of LeBron's best passes. You will not be disappointed.
5. You have to love the move Steve Kerr pulled last night, calling a timeout just so he could rip the refs.
6. I'm extremely excited to be taking over hosting duties of the SI Media Podcast. I will no longer host the Off The Board podcast, so if you were a subscriber to that one, PLEASE subscribe to the new one. Obviously, media will be a big theme since it's called the SI MEDIA Podcast, but I will still interview athletes, celebrities and other interesting people along the way. The podcast will post each Thursday and once again, you should subscribe. The first episode features an interview with ESPN historian and author James Andrew Miller, who had that shocking interview with former ESPN president John Skipper last week in which Skipper revealed he left the network because of a cocaine extortion plot. We cover all of that, as well as the fraying ESPN-NFL relationship, Monday Night Football and much more. You can listen and subscribe below or on iTunes.
7. RANDOM WRESTLING VIDEO OF THE DAY: My colleague, Andy Gray, requested some old-school Kurt Angle today. This should do the trick.
