Perhaps the most humiliating moment of the Warriors’ ignominious collapse in the NBA Finals came when LeBron James soared out of the sky and pinned Andre Iguodala’s shot to the backboard in utter defiance of gravity and everyone.

The Indians have been nigh unbeatable this postseason thanks to a bullpen that’s seemingly incapable of getting roughed up and a propensity for whacking big dingers. They lived up to expectations on both fronts tonight, but they also have Corey Kluber to thank for utterly confounding Cubs hitters all night, kicking off the World Series with a historically good start.

Police opened fire on a semi-truck in a high speed pursuit near Hammond, Indiana after the truck refused to stop, according to Fox 32. We now cut to footage recorded on the scene from two bros totally losing their minds, dude.

In his first game without Tim Duncan since the Mesozoic Era, Gregg Popovich got wistful and told a touching story about his relationship with old friend Steve Kerr.

Hockey players tend to be dentally challenged, but goalies usually manage to retain most of their chompers. Not so much with Ben Bishop. The Tampa Bay Lightning goalie took a Peter Holland zinger to the face and lost his two front teeth this evening despite having a mask for protection.

The Cavaliers are cruising in the first game of the NBA season, with a nice healthy fourth quarter lead over the Knicks. It’s gone about how you’d probably expect. Kristaps Porzingis has loped around the court and hit a few shots, Kyrie Irving has put Brandon Jennings in the toilet, and, of course, LeBron James has been his usual omnipotent self, and has returned to terrorizing any and all rims in front of him.

A 36-year-old Broncos fan fell from a “severe height” while leaving last night’s win over the Texans, and the Denver Medical Examiner’s Office pronounced him dead this afternoon. Jason Coy fell last night at 9:45 p.m. local time, and an emergency crew responded to a 911 call shortly after. Coy was taken to the hospital, where he died of blunt force trauma, per the Denver Post.

The NBA season is starting more or less right now. What better way to kick the proceedings off than to enjoy TNT’s Charles Barkley offering his first astounding take of the year.

Oh, you put a jersey on your dog to celebrate your sports team winning a game? Real cute. This Burnley fan and his cool horse are very impressed.

On Thursday, the Sacramento Kings will play their first game in a new arena that the city chipped in $255 million to build. They scraped together that money in 2013 in order to win an arms race with billionaire Chris Hansen and the city of Seattle. Hansen’s offer to the Maloof family was $39 million higher than the eventual winning bid, but Sacramento offered to pay up more than Seattle did. Then-commissioner David Stern helped push the Kings arena proposal through the relocation committee with a unanimous vote because of the incredibly owner-friendly precedent set by the city kicking in so much money. Stern used relocation as a cudgel and he got what he wanted.

The Cleveland Indians had to know their racist-ass logo would inspire some of their numbnuts fans to show up to the first Indians World Series game since 1997 in headdresses and redface.

Broncos linebacker DeMarcus Ware returned home from Monday night’s game against the Houston Texans to discover that his house had been burglarized. Ware was understandably upset, but was also comforted by the fact that his house was equipped with hidden cameras.

The large, hard-charging Argentine is winning things again. Juan Martin del Potro just captured his first ATP title in two years at the Stockholm Open, an event he’d only qualified for by way of wild card. Most of those two years he spent addressing chronic wrist injuries and free-falling through the rankings. But 2016 has been kinder: In January he was as low as No. 1041 in the world, but this Monday, fresh off the 250 points from this title, he leapt another 21 spots up to No. 42.

The NCAA issued yet another response in its convoluted back-and-forth with the University of North Carolina over the institution’s response to UNC’s sham Afro-American Studies department, which funneled athletes through paper classes.

I don’t think I’d want to wear stuff branded by a website I like. But you don’t judge me for my weird, some-might-say deviant peccadilloes, so I’m not going to judge you for buying some swag from the all-new Deadspin Store.

Amazon added 20 new Dash buttons to their lineup this morning, and while you probably don’t need most of them (except the Pop-Tart one, you definitely need that), there may be a few in there that could come in handy around your house. The buttons still cost $5 each, but as an added incentive, you’ll get that $5 back in the form of an Amazon credit when you press it for the first time.

Three years ago, before Donald Trump announced his apocalyptic, finally real run for president, reality TV producers were planning a big rollout of their own: Trump Town Girls, a series pitting beautiful, leggy contestants in Trump’s beauty pageants against the hardened real estate brokers of Trump International Realty.

Dallas Mavericks and former Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut’s political beliefs are exactly what you would expect them to be. He complains about the rappers, cars, and the bling bling in the NBA; goes on random right-wing podcasts; is anti-workers rights; and frequently tweets profoundly uninteresting things about male privilege, safe spaces, and the dreaded SJWs. He is basically a bizarro quasi-libertarian Australian version of Spencer Hawes. He’s the honky messiah.

Yesterday, a sort of legend died: Jack Chick, wildly prolific maker of tiny, usually unintentionally hilarious evangelical comics, went to go meet his faceless god at the age of 92. Chick made comics warning about the spiritual and real-world dangers of Halloween, Rock and Roll, Catholics, Jews, gay people, pretty much any secular interest, and, yes, he even had at least one comic about cars.
