LIKE MIKE AWARD: LeBron James

After his team lost the NBA Finals in five games, the Cavaliers star took to Instagram to show off his new bald head while working out. LeBron is really taking all these debates about himself and Michael Jordan pretty seriously. Hopefully a pro baseball career isn't in the works, too.

RARE AWARD: Penguins fans

For some reason fans in Pittsburgh celebrated winning the Stanley Cup over the Nashville Predators by eating raw catfish in the streets of their city. It would appear that anyone wanting to open a sushi restaurant there could make a killing.

FLIPPING MAD AWARD: Yasiel Puig

The Dodgers outfielder was fined and suspended one game by Major League Baseball after he was seen flipping a pair of middle fingers at fans during a game last week in Cleveland. Mr. Met was recently fired for flipping just one middle finger to fans. The mascots need a better union.

WORLD TRAVELER AWARD: Dennis Rodman

The former NBA rebounding king made another visit to North Korea to hang with that country's leader Kim Jong-un, and many folks in the U.S. were again wondering what the Worm was doing there. Perhaps it was to hang with someone who has worse hair than he does for once.
