Kevin Durant scored 17 points in the fourth quarter while LeBron James scored five points in the final 12 minutes of the Thunder's 105-94 victory in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. But LeBron wasn't the only one who had a rough night. Heat president Pat Riley was taunted by fans, and Lil Wayne's return to Oklahoma City did not go well. (We're guessing Wayne won't be getting one of these cool "OKCLE" shirts for the rest of the Finals.) Speaking of shirts, Russell Westbrook came through with another gem in his postgame press conference, but it was the dog above who sported the Look of the Day.
Natitude!Two notable home runs you should watch from Washington's 4-2 win at Toronto last night: Rookie catcher Jhonatan Solano hit his first career dinger and got the silent treatment from his teammates when he returned to the dugout. Then there's phenom Bryce Harper, who hit this BOMB. After the game, a reporter asked Harper if he was going to have a beer (since 19-year-olds can drink in Canada). For some reason, the rookie outfielder did not appreciate the question.
UPDATE, 12:35 pm ET: Tons of you have written in to let me know that Harper is a Mormon and this was probably the reason he scoffed at the beer question.
This Is GoldenKent State is on its way to Omaha for the College World Series. (You should watch the how the Golden Flashes earned their trip since the clip includes a memorable call by the play-the-play man.) If you're a Kent State fan who wants to cheer on the Golden Flashes in person, former Kent State quarterback and current Browns wide receiver Josh Cribbs is chartering a bus to take fans to the Series.
