There's a tradition, especially in New Orleans, to have a King Cake during Mardi Gras. It's a festive cake with a small, plastic baby hidden inside which will bring you luck if you find it. This tradition has translated into the horrifying King Cake Baby, a mascot brought out around Mardi Gras season by the New Orleans Pelicans.

This is coming from an NBA team who recently gave their year round mascot "plastic surgery" to make his face a little less scary.

Amidst all the haters, there's no doubt that Joey Crawford will be missed for his impressive procession of awkward trips, falls, and barrel rolls as he wipes the gym floor with his gleaming bald dome of a head.

At least Crawford who was infamous for making the gutsy, more controversial calls left it all out on the court.

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.

Kentucky basketball phenom Anthony Davis, likely to be snapped up by the New Orleans Hornets with the No. 1 pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, has trademarked his famous unibrow -- he now owns the rights to the phrases "Fear The Brow" and "Raise The Brow."

"I don't want anyone to try to grow a unibrow because of me and then try to make money off of it," Davis explains. "Me and my family decided to trademark it because it's very unique."

NBA commissioner David Stern was a guest on today's Jim Rome Show, where the exchange turned ugly when the host questioned whether the league's draft lottery was fixed.

Stern turned on Rome -- "Have you stopped beating your wife yet?" -- thereby cementing his jackass reputation for all eternity. Because the draft is fixed, along with everything else in the NBA.
