A guy on Twitter was very excited for his sister but was just a little off in his reasoning.

He believes his sister and her friends somehow met Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, but really, it seems pretty clear they're posing with Miami Heat star LeBron James.

Hey, at least it wasn't a random guy posing as an athlete.

In honor of the anniversary of Jackie Robinson's historic MLB debut, players around the league paid their respect in the only part of their uniform that is customizable: their cleats.

Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen showed off these yellow, black and gold shoes with a "42" on the front on his Instagram with the caption, "He was the definition of the word change. Not only the change in race, but change in this world. #Jackie42#TeamNike."

Detroit's Torii Hunter had the same emblem on his custom shoes that he shared on his Instagram

Cincinnati's Jay Bruce wore these custom Griffeys made by Nike. 


The New York Knicks could've used all kinds of this earlier in the season.

Earlier in the game against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday, we saw New York guard Iman Shumpert send Brooklyn's Paul Pierce to the floor with a crossover. Shumpert may have topped his first highlight-reel move with an off-the-backboard dunk from Toure Murry early in the fourth quarter.

Former University of Kentucky signal-caller Jared Lorenzen earned the nickname "Hefty Lefty" during his playing days for his enormous size, especially for a quarterback. Lorenzen recently reemerged in the public eye after videos showed he was still playing football despite weighing approximately 320 pounds. 

In light of the recent development that the NCAA would allow Division I student-athletes to receive unlimited meals and snacks, Lorenzen chimed in with a wisecrack about his weight:

Never change, Pillsbury Throwboy. Never change.

Prior to the Brooklyn Nets' matchup against the New York Knicks, Nets usher Bryan Bautista was tapped to sing the national anthem, and he absolutely nailed it. 

According to Rachel Nichols, Bautista has been an usher at Barclays since the day it opened, but this was the first time he sang the anthem.

Basketball trick-shot artists: The bar has been raised.

David Kalb dribbles not one, but two basketballs out of his moving car before hitting a tough shot, then avoids driving into the hoop.

Plenty of editing was likely required to get this footage, but doing any of the above feats is worthy of your attention.

The Pittsburgh Pirates showed off their hitting dominance against the Cincinnati Reds and celebrated in the dugout by channeling the WWE's heavyweight champion.

Following three innings featuring back-to-back home runs, the Pirates busted out a "Yes!" chant in the spirit of Daniel Bryan (skip to around the 1:50 mark to catch the chants).

Before the game was suspended in the sixth inning due to rain, both teams combined for a total of 10 home runs. The Pirates ended up winning, 8-7, with Russell Martin driving home the game-deciding run in the seventh.

The San Antonio Spurs have already wrapped up the top spot in the Western Conference, so they can afford to have some fun while the regular season wraps up.

From Danny Green all the way up to Tim Duncan, the Spurs got a little silly while taking a team selfie ahead of Fan Appreciation Night. 

The only thing that could have made this picture even better would have been if San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich had joined in on the fun.
