That NBA Lottery Pick:
One of my favorite WWE wrestlers of all-time has to be Stone Cold Steve Austin and earlier today, Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix got the chance ask what athlete he’d like to deliver his signature finishing move, “The Stunner”.

Stone Cold Steve Austin just told me the athlete he would most like to hit with the Stunner is Dwight Howard. Oh. My. God.
