Anyone who follows Kendall Marshall on social media knows he likes to have a good time on his accounts, so it should be no surprise that he used Twitter to say his goodbyes to Los Angeles.

After the Lakers waived Marshall over the weekend, the Milwaukee Bucks picked him up. That meant he would have to say goodbye to everyone and everything he had become familiar with over the past year.

The point guard started his farewells by thanking the Lakers for giving him a chance:

Then, he thanked something near and dear to him:

The seventh annual Chicago Blackhawks Convention kicked off last Friday with the usual fanfare.

Players assembled to give autographs, talk to fans and engage in Q&A sessions with the people who pay their salaries.

When superstars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane sat down to talk with fans, one bold woman threw out an unusual request. She wanted to see a dance-off.

“I’m Paige, and I’m a Toews fan,” she began, as if opening up a support group meeting. “And we were wondering, if…because of the competitiveness you guys had last year…can we see a rematch of the dance-off?”

Any fans who have gone to see Jamal Crawford in the Seattle Pro-Am League this summer have gotten their money's worth.

Last week, the Los Angeles Clippers guard dropped 104 points with ease over a span of two games. Those performances were impressive, but he recently wowed fans in a different way.

With his team trailing 115-114 and only 5.6 seconds to play, Crawford came up big, hitting a deep three-pointer to give his team a two-point victory.

There's not much that he hasn't been able to do in a game this summer.

Jagermeister is many things, but "drink of champions" isn't a label often associated with licorice-flavored fist-pump fuel.

This distinction may be changing, however, judging by a picture that surfaced of Rory McIlroy's family celebrating McIlroy's Open Championship victory Sunday night.

@Love_Belfast (h/t J. Camm of BroBible) spotted a picture of what appears to be McIlroy's mother, Rosie McIlroy, overseeing the pouring of Jagermeister into the Claret Jug.

The image appeared to have been taken at a post-Open family gathering McIlroy attended.

When you have a farmer tan's like this, you might as well have some fun with it.

This fan decided to turn his farmer's tan into a Dante Exum jersey. It's a great way to save some money and still show support for the Utah Jazz rookie.

Dez Bryant is hoping to build on his successful season with the Dallas Cowboys last year and make an impact on a team with Super Bowl aspirations.

Bryant rocked the Air Jordan 6 Retro cleats in his workout on the Nike campus. They will be available to fans and players around the globe on Jordan.com and at select retailers this summer.

Kobe Bryant has yet to make his NBA return after missing most of last season, but the Los Angeles Lakers great looks to be ready for competition if his softball prowess is any indication. 

Competing in Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman's annual celebrity softball game at Safeco Field, Bryant hit an opposite-field home run as captured by Instagram account LakersWorld16:

He also posed for a photo with Clippers guard Jamal Crawford and former SuperSonics great Gary Payton:

Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney is known for his "bow and arrow, point to the sky" celebration after completing a save. 

Division rivals Mike Trout and Albert Pujols of the Los Angeles Angels might have gotten a little tired of seeing Rodney taunt Angels fans after escaping in the eighth inning. 

So when the Angels rallied to beat the Mariners 6-5 on Sunday afternoon, the power-hitting duo decided to give Rodney a taste of his own medicine. 

The rally began when Trout drew a leadoff walk in the bottom of the ninth, and Pujols doubled him home to tie the game at five. Grant Green then sent the winning run across the plate with a bases-loaded, walk-off single, denying Rodney what would have been his 200th career save. 

Tyler Skaggs of the Angels chimed in after the game:

You can bet Rodney will celebrate a little extra the next time he saves a game against the Angels.

Some NFL rookies may have had high ratings in EA Sports' NCAA Football, but now that they are in the NFL they have to start over and earn their grades.

EA Sports gave rookies Jadeveon Clowney, Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater, among others, a chance to rate themselves for Madden NFL 15. Needless to say, some of them aren't lacking in the confidence department.

When the rookies found out EA Sports' actual assessment of them, they had some hilarious reactions.

Throughout a 162-game season, MLB players are going to make mental mistakes. Fans may not like it, but it happens. Adam Jones happened to be the latest player to have a lapse in concentration.

During Sunday's game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Oakland A's, Jones lost track of the number of outs in the bottom of the third inning. With Yoenis Cespedes on third, Oakland's Josh Donaldson hit a fly ball to Jones, who thought he had just recorded the third out. The only problem is that it was just the second out of the inning.

Cespedes likely would have scored on the play even if Jones had thrown the ball to the plate, but he was instead able to trot home with ease to give the A's a 3-0 lead.
