Who Wore it Better? NBA Edition
Ah Lebron. Setting NBA records is his game. But fashion trends?
During the NBA playoffs James wore a shorts suit which cost a whopping sixty four thousand dollars.
Following suit (see what I did there ) Draymond Green was subject to donning this awful trend during the NBA Finals.
And now, the youngin’s are copying the trend.
Ah, the NBA Draft. Where dreams come true and fashion goes to die.
New Hawks rookie Trae Young topped his night off sporting a maroon suit short outfit, and a black bow tie. Young’s little brother was also at the draft, matching his suit.

Iranian Futbol Player Somersault’s into History
When you’re on the world stage during one of the most watching sporting tournaments ever, sometimes you just want to do somersaults.
In Wednesday’s match between Iran and Spain, with Iran trailing 1-0 into injury time, Mohammadi looked as though he would go for the long throw to try and even the score.
According to the FIFA website, Mohammadi is a player "renowned for his extraordinary speed and agility",
He decided to put that to the test. He lined up, kissed the ball, and proceeded to attempt a somersault throw-in.
And it failed.
Upon nailing the somersault (A+ for effort there bud), the defender’s balance seemed off, and was forced to abandon the whole plan at the last second.
Iran failed to score in the final 20 seconds of the game, and the internet went wild.
Check it out below.
