The weekend is over, and it's time to take a look in the rear view mirror at the news nuggets from the last few days that we loved the most.

First up: J.R. Smith. And the reality show that probably won't happen, but MAN do we want it to.

Listed at 6'5", 250 pounds, the man can hit a baseball even harder than he throws it.

So to the Giants, we say: Let Mad Bum mash. To Mad Bum, we say:

Finally, as sports fans, we can't say we were upset when we saw Kim Kardashian lose her top spot in the App Store at the hands of an athlete.

Just ahead of the weekend, Steph Curry's "Stephmoji" app took over the No. 1 ranking, and for good reason. The emojis are must-haves, even for the non-sports fan. Take a look at them yourself.

Here's a taste:

To Steph, and the team that helped him create such a mesmerizing set of emojis:
