Oprah owning the Clippers? Nuttiest NBA playoffs ever? Red Sox hottest AL East team?

I can't decide what to write about today:

1)  ESPN is reporting that Oprah Winfrey is considering buying the LA Clippers.

Not to mention Oprah's mind control powers might come in handy as well.

2)  This has been, without a doubt, the most amazing/ridiculous/unpredictable NBA playoffs ever, and we're still in the first round...

  • East #1 seed Pacers are about to be eliminated by a sub-.500 team.
  • West #1 seed Spurs are one missed layup away from potentially being down 3-1.
  • West #2 seed Thunder trail 3-2, and have played 4 consecutive overtime games (a playoff record).
  • There have already been 8 OT games so far, the record for one postseason is 10.
  • After winning 58% of the time in the regular season, home teams are 15-21 in the playoffs.
  • The Pacers ineptitude means the Wizards, 44-38 in the regular season and fresh of their upset of #4 seed Chicago, will likely play in the Eastern Conference Finals. 

3)  It may sound hard to believe, but the Red Sox are in fact playing better baseball than everyone else in their division at the moment:
