When a noise complaint was called about a group of kids playing basketball too loudly, this Gainesville, FL police officer showed up to set them straight. And by set them straight, we mean dunking on them while playing basketball.

Officer White handled the issue (or non-issue) like a pro and according to the Gainesville Police Department, he is trying to set up a full game.

Hafthór Björnsson famous for his role on 'Game of Thrones' as Gregor 'The Mountain' Clegane. We'll bet you didn't know that this massive godlike species of a man played professional basketball in Iceland before he took up lifting/moving very heavy things; and finally acting as his full-time career.

So, yeah. Take a moment to imagine this gigantic beast of a dude running down a basketball court, full speed, and with you as the only obstacle between him and the hoop.

Uhh, fu*k that noise is right. He's like one of those steroid-addled, veiny, superhuman, cartoon beasts from 'Space Jam,' but even bigger.

It takes a serious set of stones to openly mock LeBron James for being a crybaby when you're sitting four feet away from the demi-god of a man. An epic moment of awkwardness in every sense of the word.

Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Kevin Love is the latest victim of Twitter's unfortunate crop.

The hoopster tweeted out a photo of his chocolate milk today and because of Twitter's uncanny ability to ruin every photo, it looked like he was holding a penis or phallic sex toy.

It also didn't help that he said he was "getting loose." If you know what he means.

He later changed the photo for a better version, but the Internet never forgets.

Pope Francis is now officially a baller.

The Harlem Globetrotters paid a visit to the Vatican on Wednesday, and they performed a few tricks with the pope during his weekly meet-and-greet with the public.

At one point he tried to spin a basketball on his finger, but it didn’t stay up for very long. And the second attempt was even worse.

But he appeared to enjoy the whole experience nonetheless.

The team also gave him a jersey with his name and the number 90 on it (because the Globetrotters are 90 years old), and they said that he could play with them as an honorary member.

Pope John Paul II was also made an honorary Golbetrotter back in 2000.

The Globetrotters posted some more images of their meeting with Francis on Twitter.

Minnesota Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine won the NBA All-Star Sprite Slam Dunk competition on Saturday night in New York, and he won over the crowd with a throwback to the 1996 movie “Space Jam.”

In his first attempt, he appeared on the court wearing Michael Jordan’s #23 Tune Squad jersey from the film while the Quad City DJs performed the theme song.

“I’m still on cloud nine. I feel like I’m dreaming,” he said. “Seeing all the dunk contests and people hoisting the trophy, I just saw myself do it and lived it, so it’s a dream come true. I’m glad my family is here to witness it and go through it.”

LaVine, who got 2 perfect scores, is the second youngest winner in the competition’s history next to Kobe Bryant.

So this happened, and you just "can't even" because you are literally dying.

The British Royal Family met the royal family of the United States on Monday at the Brooklyn Nets vs Cleveland Cavaliers game in New York.

Jay-Z and Beyonce walked over to meet and greet Prince William and Kate Middleton during the 3rd and 4th quarters, while "God Save the Queen" and "Crazy In Love" blasted through the Barclays Center, according to US Weekly.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in the U.S. for a three-day tour, and the epic basketball game meetup followed a brief meeting with President Obama Monday at the White House.
