Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar were spotted together at an LA Clippers Basketball game watching intently. Their expressions unsurprisingly led to some jokes at their expense on the internet.

Jay-Z just wants to watch the game guys, can't you put your differences aside?

Eventually, though, they found some common ground.

sports twitter ESPN Tried a Bold New Camera Angle and Everyone Hated It

During a Michigan-Ohio State basketball game, ESPN debuted a camera angle that was supposed to make people feel like they were sitting courtside. Unfortunately, it was not the experience they hoped for.

It turned out to be a weird angle that didn't account for the referees who ended up blocking out much of the screen anytime they walked by.  People hated it so much, it's probably safe to say that ESPN will not be trying this again. via @AceAnbender, @eboland11, @BryMac@Reflog18

These Twitter emoji are part of a promotion for that All-Star NBA game. They will be live until Monday morning. You can use them by Tweeting the All-Star's name with a hashtag.

Those following along with the All-Star game can also use these emojis to vote for the MVP by adding #KiaAllStarMVP along with their player of choice.

They also have some amusing personal emojis for the broadcasters as well, although since fan voting only makes up 25% of the decision for MVP it's unlikely the broadcasters will end up getting the award. 

Officer White was recently dispatched to a call of kids playing basketball "loudly" in the streets. In the evening. Having fun. Not committing crimes. Let's see how he handled it.

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.

Unfortunate Crop of The Day: Basketball Player is "Getting Loose" on Twitter Today With Chocolate Milk

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.
