    Oh GIF’s! What would life be like without you? That’s right, almost exactly the same, but slightly less obnoxious. Well, as silly as this technology is (and it’s quite silly), there are a disarming number of funny ones online.

    Game One of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics could have been a lot more interesting down the stretch had it not been for what may very well be the softest (and worst) call of the playoffs thus far.

    Memphis guard Tony Allen went into his local barbershop and asked for “the Grizzly cut.”  This is what he got.
