The Rangers gave Cole Hamels a very, very comfortable cushion of run support in his return from a two-month stint on the disabled list. Elvis Andrus hit two home runs, Adrian Beltre and Joey Gallo each added another, and Texas had a 9-2 lead after the top of the fourth inning.
Russell Westbrook—the first man to average a triple-double since Oscar Robertson, an insane human and statistical highlight reel, the player who single-handedly propelled the Oklahoma City Thunder into the playoffs—is the 2017 NBA MVP.
Has LaVar Ball’s heel act made his son a heel even in Los Angeles, or do wrestling fans in LA not know Lonzo Ball is member of the Lakers? Either way, Lonzo and LaVar Ball were both booed when they appeared on WWE Raw tonight.
The Bucks’ Malcolm Brogdon is the 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year, defeating 76ers teammates Joel Embiid and Dario Saric for the award.
Javier Báez showed off his range in the third inning against the Nationals tonight, leaping to snare a ball that seemingly was all but guaranteed to find the gap and become a hit. That he made it look so easy is just testament to how smooth a fielder he is:

Nick Fairley had the best season of his career last year for the Saints, racking up 6.5 sacks in 16 starts and earning himself a new $28 million contract with New Orleans.

Tonight, FS1 will broadcast all the hot 3-on-3 action that took place at the Nets’ arena in Brooklyn yesterday. The conceit of the Big 3 was pretty simple: Ice Cube rounded up a bunch of old NBA stars and had them play 3-on-3 hoops. The fact that they were all old really affected the quality of play.
A 23-year-old (presumably former) University of Missouri employee drove his Volkswagen Passat through a gate outside Mizzou Arena early Sunday morning. According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, the driver then somehow managed to steer said car onto the basketball court inside the arena, causing roughly $100,000 in…
