In today’s NBA news, Mavericks forward Brandan Wright will be out of action for a while with a small fracture in his left shoulder; Rodney Stuckey fractured his thumb on a car door; and Dwayne Wade returned to action for the Miami Heat.
SH Blog: Parsons credits himself for influencing Howard’s decision, Wall and Wizards in advanced talks for max contract agreement
Most of us took the news that Parsons had been talking to Howard everyday with a grain of salt with the mindset of “as if he can really make a true difference.” But as it turns out, the forward played an enormous part in helping Howard make his decision. Just ask Chandler himself, from Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports:
“I think I had a big impact,” Parsons said at USA Basketball’s mini-camp. “The first thing he said at the press conference was that, ‘You guys should thank Chandler Parsons because he is a big reason why I am here.’
“Obviously, he loves the team, [general manager] Daryl Morey, coach [Kevin] McHale and all that. But I think I just gave him that comfort that you got one of your boys here who is also a key part to the team, a young guy. And we can grow on this for a long time.”
While Sunday played host to Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals in the NBA, the world of music was treated to hilarity.
Sunday night at the Billboard Music Awards—which netted their highest ratings in 12 years—R&B singer Miguel attempted to platform jump over a group of fans during a performance. Needless to say, his jump did not end well. Additionally, hip hop fans were given behind-the-scenes pictures of Drake on the set of a forthcoming music video for his song, “No New Friends.”
Unfortunately for both Miguel and Drake, fans took to Instagram to demonstrate their photo-editing and comedic prowess using the music stars’ likenesses to make internet memes. Many people have gotten a good laugh at their expense.
Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried showcases his favorite image.
Washington Wizards forward Chris Singleton took a nice shot at Miguel with his first tweet of the day.
Dallas Mavericks reserve center Bernard James was entertained enough to post eight pictures in two tweets.
My personal favorite has to be the one of Drake hitting the home run.
Whatever their reasons for making the memes, one thing we can be sure of: internet fans are hilarious.
Keep on doing what you do internet fans.

In addition to his unwavering play at the game’s toughest position, the point guard of the Portland Trail Blazers has yet to miss a game this season, which many of his fellow classmates have been unable to say lately.
The Boston Celtics also raised expectations by adding some key pieces in the offseason, then promptly stumbled out of the gate. But there were no death stares, insurrections, coach beheadings or panic moves.
But there are some problems in Beantown. Let’s allow team leader Kevin Garnett to explain.
“You can’t speed chemistry up,” Garnett said. “I think the more practice, the more you get familiar with each other. There’s no hit the fast forward button here. You’ve got Comcast; some shows you can’t fast forward through. You’ve just got to let it go through and watch the silly ass commercials and be pissed, right? This is what this is.
