Above is Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah, former BYU standout and the No. 5 overall pick in this year’s NFL draft. And yes, those are 3D glasses he’s wearing. Someday, we’re going to look back at this as the moment hipster glasses officially jumped the shark. A future millionaire walking onto the Radio City Music Hall stage wearing the eyewear used for viewing Avatar? Yep, that’ll do it. Shark jumped. And I say that as someone who wears somewhat hipster-ish glasses. Do you though, Ziggy. Do you.

-ICYMI: from yesterday, Steve Jones of the C-J checks in with 2014 stud Stanley Johnson. The LA native claims he’s Cal’s top target on the wing, and given the MKG comparisons, I’d be just fine with that.
-You’ve all seen the replays. The knee injury sustained by former USC running back Marcus Lattimore was as gruesome as they come. Frank Cooney discusses the road ahead for Lattimore, who was taken in the fourth round of the NFL draft by the 49ers yesterday.
-Russell Westbrook is officially done for the season. This is a blow for fans of great point guards, basketball in general, and odd men’s fashion. But all is not lost for the Thunder faithful. KSR friend Gregg Doyell has some thoughts about about what Kevin Durant is going to have to do to keep OKC’s playoff hopes alive.
Happy Sunday, Cats fans. I’ll be here all morning/afternoon, so feel free to space out your trolling evenly throughout the day. I’ve got thick skin.
