Your morning roundup for May 13, the day we wondered why our census form asked for penis size. Video via Sportsfeeder.
What we watched: The Bulls played their most complete game of the playoffs yesterday, and it says here they looked good enough to lose to the Heat in seven. You're going to hear a lot of talk like this in the coming days — sorry, Kevin Durant, but Derrick Rose is the new national unicorn — and I fear the Bulls likewise will be reduced to the Not Heat. That'd be too bad. It's been a while since we've seen a team quite like Chicago, a coach's wet dream that can also make even the most casual fan sit up a little. (The early-aughts Kings, maybe, had they not turned into the Easter Island moai on D.) All that style comes wrapped in all those fundamentals. Hubie Brown was so moved by something Derrick Rose did last night that I'm pretty sure he actually yipped, and the effect was a little like finding John Wooden doing the Hustle. (Tommy Craggs)
What we're watching: Sometimes, a sport's changing of the guard is sudden and obvious, like Tiger Woods' public fall from grace, or Rafael Nadal's breakthroughs on grass in the Grand Slams. But other times it sneaks up on everyone, allowing you to make totally shocking, totally accurate pronouncements like this one: Novak Djokovic is the best tennis player in the world. Yes, he's still ranked No. 2 but that's a product of tennis's backloaded rankings system. Djokovic has yet to lose a match in 2011, including three against the No. 1 Nadal (one of those wins coming on clay).
Djokovic faces fifth-ranked Robin Soderling in the quarterfinals in Rome today, with Andy Murray up next. After that? Likely another finals showdown with Nadal. I'd say that would make for a great final, but I don't think Djokovic is physically capable of losing right now. (Barry Petchesky)
NFL sockpuppet denies the existence of sockpuppets: "Said NFL spokesman Greg Aiello in response, via e-mail: 'Regarding the statement from your recent post, 1) the goal of the clubs is not to shut down the league. It's to get a fair agreement with the players. 2) I have not posted any comments on your site and do not know of any club or league employees that have done so. If there is evidence otherwise, let me know. We most definitely have not tried as a league to influence comments on the site.'" [PFT]
