    Like most sports fans, seeing the Miami Heat win makes me want to punch kittens. That being said, I don’t begrudge the 20 or 30 real Heat fans out there for celebrating.

    Spurs’ Manu Ginobili Slaps Kevin Durant in the Face During Game 5 (GIF)

    While the San Antonio Spurs figuratively slapped around the Oklahoma City Thunder during Game 5 on Thursday, Manu Ginobili took a moment to literally slap Kevin Durant…right in the kisser!!! The slap from Ginobili was obviously unintentional, but that probably didn’t make Durant’s face feel any better. And the 117-89 loss and a 3-2 series deficit won’t […]
