1. Just the NFL. Only the NFL, with a grip on this country like no other, can make a complete spectacle of releasing the schedule of games for the upcoming season.
Every year, the hype around the release schedule grows and grows. Even if most of the schedules are released on Twitter throughout the day, there will still be a two -hour show to air Thursday night on the NFL Network and simulcast on FS1 while ESPN2 will also air its own two -hour show.
The hype around the release schedule is complete Twitter fodder. Most people ridicule it as useless, some will admit they love it, while others (and this is the category I fit into) love and hate it at the same time.

3. The Warriors were completely defeated at FedEx Forum last night, 134–95, and at one point fell to 52 against the Grizzlies. The game was so out of control that Golden State forward Draymond Green really danced and celebrated with the home crowed.
4. Jrue Holiday had a variety of late-game heroics last night to lead the Bucks to victory against the Celtics. He has a three-pointer clutch, a big block and a game-ending steal. Brian Anderson of TNT is unique in each of these calls.
5. Angels pitcher Noah Syndergaard celebrated Reid Detmers’ no-hitter on Tuesday by taking to Instagram and pointing out that Detmers threw a “true no-hitter.” Because the Mets recently threw a combined no-hitter and Syndergaard had previously played for the Mets, a lot of people took it as a shot. Syndergaard said no. Hmmm …
6. Former Celtic Tacko Fall at 7’6 ”. He grabbed the front row seat in the Bucks-Celtics game on Wednesday. It was a problem with the woman sitting behind him. But things worked out in the end as you can see below.
7. RANDOM VIDEO OF THE DAY: On this date, May 12, in 1994, George Costanza experienced a decline.
