Dallas sports fan @hyrulecitizen is getting bombarded with hatred after her Thursday night tweet proclaiming the virtue of a slice of pizza dipped in milk. Pizza is a vehicle, and you probably know someone who puts something weird on their slice — but a thin liquid like milk seems on the surface to compromise everything great about pizza.
This had to be put to the test.
A trade that sent Sam Bradford to Minnesota in September 2016 gave the Eagles the rights to the Vikings’ first-round pick, but a coin flip was necessary to break a tie for the No. 14 selection. Both the Vikings and Colts finished with 8-8 records and had identical strengths of schedule.
The coin toss was the first in three years to break a draft order tie. In 2008, there was a three-way tie between the Atlanta Falcons, Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs for the No. 3 pick. The Falcons won the toss and selected eventual-NFL MVP Matt Ryan.
With the picks finalized for the Vikings, Colts and Eagles, the entire seven-round order for the 2017 NFL Draft is officially set.
Matt Barnes (Warriors): Kevin Durant suffered a sprained MCL and will be out at least a month. Barnes is no Durant, but he’s an edgy, tough defender who can shoot the three-pointer. He’ll be a stop gap until Golden State gets its leading scorer, rebounder and shot-blocker back in the rotation.
Norris Cole (Thunder): Cole last played for the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2015-16 season before going unsigned during free agency over the summer. A two-time champion with the Miami Heat (2012-13), he will provide some much-needed backup to Russell Westbrook and the Thunder, who dealt Cameron Payne to the Bulls in a trade deadline deal.
Denver tried to pair Nurkic in its front court with Nikola Jokic. That didn’t work. So the Nuggets relegated him to a reserve role in favor of their rising star, which didn’t sit well.
