Twitter goes into frenzy after finding out Tristan Thompson punched Draymond Green.

1. So, apparently Tristan Thompson went up to Draymond Green at LeBron James' exclusive post-ESPY's party two weeks ago and punched him -- twice. Supposedly there's no video of the incident because phones were not allowed, so who knows whether all the details of this tale are true, but in the case of Twitter, nobody cares about that. It's all about having fun with this absurd story. And Twitter did not disappoint in assessing this situation and being 100 percent real about what all this means.

2. "Blake, good luck in Detroit ... you know what, I think you're just white enough not to get shot by the cops. But, be careful because you're now the worst shooter in the most violent city in America." The upcoming "Roast Battle" between Blake Griffin and Jeffrey Ross, airing on Comedy Central next Tuesday, sounds like it's going to be vicious and great.

3. Eagles offensive lineman Jordan Mailata has very impressive pipes.

4. White Sox prospect Michael Kopech pulled off one of the best plays you'll ever seen from a pitcher last night.

5. Instead of writing out my thoughts, I'm going to be lazy and just post my tweets about another ridiculous case of baseball being stuck in the stone ages.

Here are the ridiculous comments made by Nats GM Mike Rizzo this morning.

6. I'm no doctor, but this seems like a problem.
