-- Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky trolled Boston fans on Monday afternoon when he wore a Bucks hat during an interview.

The Celtics are currently in a playoff battle with the Bucks and are up 1-0 in the series. The Blue Jackets take on the Bruins in Game 3 of their own playoff series on Tuesday night.

-- Giants draft pick Corey Ballentine was wounded in a shooting that killed his Washburn University classmate on Saturday night and Mike Francesa said on Monday this is a bad look for the Giants.

“When you finish your draft and stress how you went out of your way to take the right kind of guys, guys that you want on the team, guys that are going to be great character guys and you stress that as strongly as the Giants did, it looks pretty bad when one of them gets shot on a Saturday night,” Francesa said on his radio show on Monday afternoon. “It does not look good. It’s just more of the same for the Giants, who just can’t get out of their own way, no matter what they say.”

“It’s sad to see the Giants become a laughingstock that they have around the league,” he continued.

And Ballentine’s father, Karl Vaughn, fired back at Francesa and his ridiculous take, telling the New York Post, “This is the kid that that guy (Francesa) wished he had as his son.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "When somebody says something like that, you never really forget it. Something like that, you're not going to. I don't really want to get into what happened because I'm going to leave it in the past where it belongs. But it's true. In Georgia, the education system isn't the best so I don't really put too much blame on the teachers. It is what it is." -- Jaylen Brown, on his teacher telling him when he was a teenager she will be looking up his name in Cobb County jail in five years
