1. From hot-headed China league outcast to the league’s best bench player.

Don’t forget about Babbitt, who had two assists in a game five times this season. WOW! [SB Nation]

2. A fantastic picture of Russell Westbrook at the line.

According to the photo, this was the most important moment of all time. [Reddit]

3. Scott Fujita signed a one-day contract with the Saints at Machu Picchu in Peru.

Then he retired. No word on whether he hiked the Inca Trail afterwards. [ESPN]

4. Robin Van Persie scored a stunning goal (one of his three) to help Manchester United secure the Premier League.

He was off-sides but whatever bro. [BI Sports]

Not sports related, still important.

Michael Shannon reads that sorority girl letter everyone was freaking out about; Bob Dylan, Wilco and My Morning Jacket will tour together; the surviving Boston bombing suspect has been charged; New York hates cigarettes.

Food porn of the day.

Watermelon, kiwi and feta blocks.

A+ for presentation, healthfulness and creativity.
