Harry Giles III’s face says it all.
Be prepared to freak out yourself
The Kings decided to break things up at training camp by having a magician come break the players’ brains.
Willie Cauley-Stein was not happy that a Sharpie mark somehow ended up drawn on the inside of his closed fist. Frank Mason and Kosta Koufos were flabbergasted when a card with the magician’s signature on it replaced their own card in between their clenched teeth. But nobody lost their mind as much as Harry Giles III.
What’s the greatest trick of all, though? Seeing all the former college stars the Kings have and convincing me they might not be a bad team.
Stay up late tonight and watch this
The Australian Football League Grand Final (the Super Bowl of Aussie rules football) is tonight at 12:30 a.m. ET and the player everyone has their eye on is an American who thought he was getting scammed when he was approached to try out four years ago. He’s such a sensation and has attracted so much media attention that his team has had to turn down interview requests from the New York Times, USA Today and other major overseas outlets. SI got to talk to him, though.

It’s not all bad news in the Wrigley bleachers
On Tuesday I had a video in here of a really ugly brawl in the bleachers at Wrigley Field (I didn’t even notice the racism the first time I watched it!). So here’s something a little more uplifting—an entire section of fans rooting for a rat to successfully leap over the wall.
