NBA teams have put their photoshop skills back on display today with some of these hilarious tweets. The hashtag they used for this twitter war was #NBAMovies, where each team spoofed a movie poster with their own players photoshopped in. Here's some of the best ones.


The Quiz Master accepts his ice bucket challenge

By Daniel Zakrzewski (@TWDGFC) Aug. 20, 2014 2:33 PM
Once every member of the TSN hockey panel had completed their ice bucket challenge, panelist Darren Dreger realized something even more chilling than the water that had been poured on his head. No one had nominated the dreaded Quiz Master to participate in the challenge.

The problem? All the panel members were out of challenges. Dreger, being the creative analyst that he is, found a way to challenge the Quiz Master and provide a wonderful tribute at the same time.



The Quiz Master, with the assistance of hockey insider Bob McKenzie, took on the challenge, while managing to maintain his anonymity.



While the Quiz Master makes his living dishing out tough hockey questions, it's great to see he's just as invested in donating towards the search for answers in the battle against ALS.

Giant Grouper Fish Eats A 4-Foot Shark

By Daniel Bruno (@_brewknow) Aug. 20, 2014 4:52 PM
In this insane video of a group of fisherman who thought they caught themselves a 4ft shark, a giant grouper fish comes out of nowhere and snatches the shark in one bite! As brought to our attention by For The Win (http://ftw.usatoday.com/2014/08/grouper-eat-shark), this fish completely turned the table and decided to eat itself a shark. You have to see this to believe it.



And since you have to rewatch the video 4 or 5 times to believe what your eyes are seeing, here's the attack in GIF form.






Bob Costas throws out two first pitches

By Daniel Zakrzewski (@TWDGFC) Aug. 20, 2014 4:19 PM
Carly Rae Jepsen, John Wall, Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson. These are just a few celebrities who would have loved to have received the same gift NBC broadcaster Bob Costas was handed on Tuesday night. A second attempt at throwing out the first pitch.

Costas, who's widely known as a big baseball buff, was invited to throw out the first pitch at the St. Louis Cardinals home game on Tuesday night. The throw wasn't as stellar as he would've hoped. Unwilling to accept his fate, the legendary broadcaster elected to go for an unheard of 'second first pitch.'



The second time was a charm, as Costas whizzed in a well placed re-do pitch. With good movement, might we add. How many other people can you name that have gotten to attend every Olympics in the last 20 years, attend the world series year in year out, got featured in one of the greatest sports documentaries of all time, and throw out two first pitches? Costas summed it up best.




Dodgers Fan Loses Mind When Beyonce Comes On

By Daniel Bruno (@_brewknow) Aug. 20, 2014 3:46 PM
Dodgers fans have every reason in the world to dance right now, they're first place in the NL West by almost 5 games with just over a month to go, they have a dynamic lineup and the first three pitchers in their rotation can go toe to toe with anybody in the league. So, how do Dodgers fans release all of that pent up joy building up in side of them? Well this particular one just likes to completely go ballistic to Beyonce songs.



We finally have a replacement for this Dodgers GIF!



Actually, no we don't.


Pierce Brosnan Plays GoldenEye 007 with Jimmy Fallon

By Daniel Bruno (@_brewknow) Aug. 20, 2014 1:45 PM
It is commonly known by all gamers that GoldenEye 007 for the N64 is one of the greatest games of all time. So, when former James Bond star, Pierce Brosnan, was a guest on The Tonight Show last night, Fallon was determined to fulfill a childhood dream. Fallon seized the opportunity to challenge the star of his favourite videogame to a one-on-one death match, in that very videogame.

I hate to be the one to shatter all of your dreams, but Pierce Brosnan is absolutely terrible at the game, but the concept is still amazing. Watch for yourself.

Biker Crashes, Flips & Lands Perfectly On Top Of Car

By Daniel Bruno (@_brewknow) Aug. 20, 2014 12:56 PM
99% of the time, motorcycle crashes are disturbingly unwatchable. Well, this is that 1% time where an ugly motorcycle crash turns into one of the must see videos of the year. As brought to our attention by LaneSplitter, this crash looks like something out of the Matrix, as the biker crashes into a lane changing vehicle, flips in the air and then makes a perfect landing on that car's roof. All we know is that it happened on a bridge in Russia and that the biker appears to be OK.



And here's a GIF that you won't be able to stop watching.



Pretty freaky, right?




Is Adrian Peterson due for his worst season?

By Daniel Zakrzewski (@TWDGFC) Aug. 20, 2014 12:52 PM
Even with the NFL's transition towards becoming a passing league, running backs still sit a top most people's fantasy football draft charts. So with that in mind, it may concern quite a lot of fantasy football fanatics that historically speaking, Adrian Peterson is due to have his worst season yet, according to ESPN's Numbers Never Lie crew.

While it may seem hard to believe, the evidence is overwhelming, as illustrated by this animated breakdown produced by Numbers Never Lie, starring Jerome 'the Bus' Bettis.



While NNL made some pretty solid points, the evidence certainly isn't irrefutable. Players can buck trends, and if anyone is great at bucking things, it's Adrian Peterson.




Jeter & Jordan take on the ice bucket challenge

By Daniel Zakrzewski (@TWDGFC) Aug. 20, 2014 12:40 PM
They're two of the biggest names in all of sports, Derek Jeter and Michael Jordan. So it was only a matter of time until they took on the ice bucket challenge.

It started with Jeter being challenged by a rather eclectic group of nominators, including Mickey Rourke, Jennifer Steinbrenner and Roger Clemens. Before taking the challenge, the Captain acknowledged former Yankees legend Lou Gehrig, whom the ALS disease has become historically associated with, as well as former Boston College outfielder Pete Frates, who is credited with having started the awareness raising challenge.



After taking his ice bath, Jeter nominated Michael Jordan to join him in participating in the challenge . A challenge his airness was happy to accept.



Up next, the 1992 USA men's basketball Olympic dream team.
