Ernest Wilkins: Me! What? If I don't believe in myself, why should you?
2. Mike Krzyzewski said this summer could be a "springboard" for Derrick Rose. What does that mean?

Ernest Wilkins: IS DERRICK ROSE JUMPING? OH GOD HE CAN JUMP AGAIN THANK YOU BASED GOD YASSSSSSS

Ernest Wilkins: *Writes a thank you card, puts head between legs, snaps it to Mannelly*
5. Brian Urlacher's golf game has reportedly improved since leaving football. What else is he doing with his time?

Katie Gibson: All the single ladies, all the single ladies.
