Jimmy Johnson paid respects to the great Dale Earnhardt on Sunday. Johnson won the Sprint Cup race in Atlanta, tying him with Earnhardt for seventh on the all-time career wins list. Johnson held up three fingers out his window as he took his victory lap, an obvious nod to the “Intimidator.”

The legend of Steph Curry continues to grow. Saturday night, Curry hit a 3-pointer from just past half-court with less than a second left on the clock to beat the  Oklahoma City Thunder. Stars all around the NBA including Lebron James tweeted congratulations and accolades for the Golden State Warriors star.
