Kentucky’s Biggest Fan, Drake, Unhappy after Loss in the National Championship Game

The rapper Drake didn’t look very happy after the Wildcats’ 60-54 loss in the National Championship Game on Monday night. We hope he doesn’t like draft day as much as his Draft Day track suggests, as the Harrison twins, Julius Randle, and James Young are likely all going to the NBA next year.

James Young Emphatically Posterizes Two UConn Players

A widely under-appreciated player because of Kentucky’s other talent, James Young brought it on Monday night. During the National Championship Game, the outstanding freshman absolutely posterized Amida Brimah and DeAndre Daniels, UConn’s best two players above the rim. This will be playing on NCAA Tournament highlight films for years to come and really showcases Young’s talent...

UConn’s Phillip Nolan Thinks He’s Marcus Smart, Flops Terribly

  Phillip Nolan apparently though he was Marcus Smart on Monday night during the National Championship Game. When Alex Poythress spun into him, he flopped late clearly, though the referees called an offensive foul on Poythress. This is absolutely ridiculous and why the NBA implemented an anti-flopping policy recently. [@HPBasketball] The post UConn’s Phillip Nolan Thinks He...

Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov eggs on taunting Winnipeg Jets fans

When it was rumored the Phoenix Coyotes were going to move to Winnipeg, then Coyotes goalie Ilya Bryzgalov made it known that he wanted nothing to do with Winnipeg. The fans let him hear it in his first game back in Winnipeg and Bryzgalov egged them on, asking for more.

LeBron James Tweets That Shabazz Napier is Best PG in Upcoming NBA Draft

LeBron James tweeted out during Monday’s National Championship Game that Shabazz Napier is the best point guard in college basketball and that he should be the first PG taken in the lottery in this year’s upcoming NBA Draft. I’m not sure if he knows who Dante Exum is, he should probably look him up and then reconsider. Here’s the tweet: No way u take another PG in the lottery...

Julius Randle Comes Up With Huge Block, James Young Hits Big Three to Spark Kentucky’s Offense Before Half

With UConn up by 13 in the National Championship Game, Julius Randle came back into the game and rejected Phillip Nolan emphatically, sparking a James Young three and an 11-2 Kentucky run. Randle has to continue to be a huge paint and rim presence for the Wildcats in order for Coach Cal and company to be National Champions. Kentucky trails Connecticut by just 4, 35-31, at the half...

John Daly Used to Drink 26-28 Cans of Diet Coke a Day, Has Cut Back to 10-12 Now

John Daly really loves Diet Coke, and that’s an understatement. The golf legend apparently used to drink 28 cans a day, but after getting lapband surgery, the carbonation bothers him. So, he’s now cut back to drinking only 10-12 per day, which is still obviously a ridiculous amount. Daly also smokes 40 cigarettes a day, too, according to The Guardian. He should probably start...

Marc-Andre Fleury Hits Fan After Exiting Locker Room Tunnel

Before the start of the second period, Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was running down the tunnel when a fan looking for a fist-bump didn’t move his hand. He knocked Fleury on the head and Fleury didn’t appreciate it too much, going up to the fan and giving him a shot. I’m sure something else was said during the exchange and that this fan won’t be doing this...
