Daily Dose: 8/24/16 Kobe Bryant Day just so happens to land on Reggie Miller’s birthday

What happens when “Kobe Bryant Day” falls on Indiana Pacers legend Reggie Miller’s 51st birthday? We go to YouTube and watch footage from the time Bryant and Miller fought on the court in 2002. Don’t worry, they’re cool now. Happy Kobe and Reggie day, y’all!

Olympic swimmer Jimmy Feigen releases statement about Rio incident. Feigen was one of four Olympic swimmers, including the now infamous Ryan Lochte, who was involved in a much talked about incident that unfolded at a Rio de Janeiro gas station during the Olympic Games. Last week, Lochte released an “apology” on his Instagram account, saying he should have been more “careful and candid” in handling the situation. On Tuesday, Feigen released his own statement, admitting to certain details about the situation that were previously lied about. This whole thing is a mess, and hopefully it’ll soon come to an end. Until then, The Associated Press has the details of Feigen’s statement.

Donald Trump isn’t bringing in as many dollars to the Republican Party as he claims. When you think Trump, one of the first things that comes to mind (jokes aside) is money. The businessman turned politician was suspected to provide a major economic boost to the Republican Party when he decided to run for president. But recent numbers show that the Republican presidential nominee isn’t living up to his promise. Though the election is still a few months away, Trump isn’t even close to hauling in the fundraising numbers 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney produced. What does this mean in terms of support heading into the election? AP‘s Chad Day and Julie Bykowicz have the details.

The NFL season is approaching, and you know what that means: time for fantasy football. Personally, I haven’t begun drafting yet, but a few people I know have already made their picks in anticipation of the season. Last weekend, I sat in on a friend’s draft and the top two picks were Cam Newton and Adrian Peterson — weird, I know. For those who frequent these fantasy football streets, you know the key to a solid roster is the “sleeper.” There’s always a list of projected sleepers before the start of the season — some more attractive prospects than others. VICE Sports breaks down the sleepers to avoid come draft time.

Trouble in paradise for Washington Wizards guards John Wall and Bradley Beal? Remember in 2014 when Beal said he and Wall made up the best backcourt in the NBA? Remember when we all somewhat believed said bold statement and began referring to Washington’s backcourt as the “House of Guards” (which adidas even started profiting on)? Well, I think it’s say to safe that for Beal to make such a statement he had to at least get along with Wall. Not necessarily. On Tuesday, Wall came out to say that at times the two guards, who’ve played together since 2012, “dislike” each other on the court. This is not good, especially since Washington just signed Beal to a five-year $128 million max contract. ESPN has the report.

Coffee Break: There’s been a lot of talk about Frank Ocean lately since he released his two albums last week, which I’m still working my way through. Let’s take a moment to appreciate Frank Ocean as a songwriter by revisiting this cover he did for Beyoncé’s I Miss You, a song he co-wrote.
