We are all witnesses… to this crazy LeBron free agency saga that may or may not end with more jerseys set aflame. As NBA pundits, haters, and so-called Heat fans continue to speculate and/or troll, LBJ proved again why he is the most talked about athlete in sports. And he didn’t even have to win a ring this time (in case you’re wondering, Tim Duncan did not opt out and will play his last season with the Spurs for $10 million).

With free agency in full swing, the biggest names in the NBA are making headlines—not for having big games—but for taking meetings. That’s how awesome the off-season has been. While we grind our teeth and clench our toes waiting for a decision on where Melo and LeBron will take their talents to, let’s marvel at how Chris Kaman is really Chris Rock trapped in a seven-foot German body.

Basketball IQ: Carl Lewis was drafted in the NBA

If you think that there are only four Hall of Famers from the 1984 NBA Draft (MJ, Chuck, Hakeem, and Stockton), you’re wrong. Another guy who had a Hall of Fame career is Frederick Carlton Lewis or better known as Carl Lewis.

If you missed the controversial Game 1 of the 2014 PBA Governor’s Cup Finals, here’s how the last possession went down: Down three points with less than three seconds left, Paul Lee took a cross-court inbound pass, faked, took one step back, took a page out of D-Wade’s fishing expedition book, sent Marc Pingris flying, and had a chance to send the game into overtime. But alas, no foul was called, pushing San Mig to just two wins away from a Grand Slam.

Yeng Guiao thought “Paul got fouled in the last play,” while Tim Cone wasn’t sure because he was “too far away” from the play. Was there a foul? Did Lee initiate contact? Did he travel? These are the questions that will haunt the rest of this series, no doubt. And to keep the debate going, was there a foul in Kobe’s tweet?

The 2014 NBA off-season made another huge step towards being more entertaining than the 2014 NBA playoffs. While the Miami Heat drama continues to unravel, Jason Kidd makes a power play in Brooklyn, which may end up in him being GM and head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. Yeah, it doesn’t make sense to us either. But at least it drew some hilarious tweets.

Best of luck, Isaiah

We’re sure you’ve seen this already but it’s hard not to watch it again and again. Such a fitting tribute to a young man, whose NBA dream was prematurely crushed by an unforeseen circumstance. If this doesn’t get you at least a little choked up, then you have a heart made out of whatever material they use for making submarines.

Basketball IQ: What country won the basketball gold medal in the 1987 Pan-Am Games?

The Pan-American Games is a sporting event that holds various athletic competitions for countries in the Americas. In 1987, Indianapolis played host to the tournament.

In the basketball gold medal game, the home team faced Brazil. Everybody on earth expected USA, featuring the likes of future NBA mainstays Danny Manning, Dan Majerle, Rex Chapman, and David Robinson, to trample the visitors. But Brazil’s Oscar Schmidt had other plans.

The only mock draft you’ll need

It’s D-Day in the NBA tomorrow. ESPN writer, Grantland contributor, and We’ll Always Have Linsanity co-author Jared Dubin made his mock draft for the 2014 NBA Draft and he was absolutely right on the money. Even the most sharp-eyed scouts and RC Buford couldn’t have nailed this one.
