Now that the NBA has given all of the remaining playoff teams a well-deserved night off, instead of, you know, scheduling the games accordingly so that fans could watch their favorite stars play every night, we get to sit back and enjoy some games tonight. And since the Miami Heat play, we’ll hopefully get some more Chris Andersen antics for Shaquille O’Neal to talk about on TNT tomorrow night since he apparently loves talking about the Birdman.

That Shaq, such the comic genius. I, for one, can’t wait to see him return to the big screen in Grown Ups 2. In fact, if TNT could show that Grown Ups 2 playoffs ad more than it already does, I’d be so incredibly happy. It’s great to see Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade and Kevin James openly acknowledging how they play the same character in everything they’ve ever done. That’s true comedy.

Kevin James should have farted. That was the only thing missing. That and David Spade’s model girlfriend’s younger self appearing before her and asking, “Why? Why has it come to this?”

NBA Playoffs

Game 3: Heat at Bulls – 8 PM ET on ESPN

Game 3: Spurs at Warriors – 10:30 PM ET on ESPN

Here’s the question of the day that is not intended to be an insult to fans of the other remaining playoffs teams, but will ultimately piss some people off on the rare chance that they actually read this – If you’re not a Heat fan – more to the point, you’re just a casual fan of the game – and you want the Heat to have the toughest possible opponent in the Finals, do you pull for the Spurs against the Warriors or do you want Stephen Curry and Golden State to continue their strong run and just hope for the best?

Or, another option, do you want a GIF of an adorable dog?

NHL Playoffs

Game 5: Rangers at Capitals – 7:30 PM ET on NBC Sports

Game 6: Ducks at Red Wings – 8 PM ET on CNBC

Game 6: Blues at Kings – 10 PM ET on NBC Sports

Let’s just go ahead and wish the Blues well on their summer vacation now. I’ll argue until my face turns, well, blue that the Blues are the most frustrating team in all of professional sports.

MLB: Cubs at Nationals – 7 PM ET on WGN

I will keep wishing continued success to Anthony Rizzo, who is still the second most important person to ever graduate from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School behind me.
