May is the month of NBA Playoff basketball, the NHL Playoffs, and the Champions Cup. We're not here to just see vindications of athletic accomplishments though. You saw the memes from Kevin Durant's heartfelt thank you to his mother. We came for some shenanigans, too; nobody got time to be inspired and shit.
In a way, Russell Westbrook, Lance Stephenson, and 50 Cent are the MVPs for the month. You have the latter possibly intentionally failing at throwing a pitch over the plate to maybe draw attention to Animal Ambition. Then you have Stephenson playing the "rival" to LeBron James, with maybe some sexual tension in between them. Westbrook didn't really fail—being Westbrook is enough to make The Best and Worst Sports GIFs of May 2014.
