The Thunder stayed perfect by beating the Grizzlies on Wednesday, but an altercation took place between Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Move along, nothing to see here.
Question on Everybody’s Mind: Should Westbrook be traded?
Our Take: Now that is sillier than Enes Kanter’s hairline. I mean, his eyebrows are being invaded y’all. As for the fight, forget about it. Every great team has infighting. Hell, Kobe and Shaq nearly killed one another on their way to multiple rings. Having a BFF is overrated.
Hype Meter: 5 out of 5 Enes Kanter’s Barbers
This story should be great fodder for the masses. Get ready to hear a great deal about Westbrook being traded. That would be awful as great point guards are rare nowadays, like Utah Jazz wins.

The Colts will come out and try to win this Sunday, putting their hold on the first overall pick in next year’s draft in doubt. The sudden need to win is nice and all, but I think fans would have liked to have seen it sooner.
Question on Everybody’s Mind: What are they thinking?
Our Take: The fact is, you can’t ask a football team to take a dive. Some of these guys may not be on the Colts in a year. So what do they care if some rookie shows up next season? And if you put scrubs in, you just risk playing guys that are really hungry. This is the most over-hyped story of the year.
Hype Meter: 5 out of 5 Let Them Plays
Many will call out the Colts for missing a golden opportunity, but I see great wisdom here. Full disclosure, I am a Rams fan.

Arsene Wenger is rather fond of bringing back former Arsenal star Thierry Henry. So much so that he has officially offered the NY Red Bulls forward a two month loan offer.
Question on Everybody’s Mind: What’s a Thierry Henry?
Our Take: Let’s bypass the American myopia for a second and discuss one of the greatest Arsenal players ever. This would be like Willie Mays coming back to play for the Mets, or something like that.

This is a huge deal for millions of people…that don’t live in this country. I will bow out as you all discuss Tim Tebow’s chastity belt or something.

THAT’S GOTTA HURT
Cavaliers hopeful Manny Harris has been cut because of a bum foot. The odd part is that he got freezer burn by getting into a cooling chamber with wet socks. The Nike’s Cryon-X is meant to aid rehabilitation, and it seems freeze the funk out of wet feet. Via NESN.
