It looks like they've confused LeBron James with Buddha in China. James, who's touring the country, is being swarmed like a deity and Chinese are cramming themselves into places you need a shoe horn to get them out of just to get a glimpse. It must be because he's American, unless they're a nation that worships choke artists. Take a look at the lengths people are going to just to get near this fourth-quarter disappearing act. JUMP!
We now know, thanks to the i-Team at US Weekly, that Orlando Magic forward Ryan Anderson is dating reality star and model Gia Allemand. The couple has been publicly gushing over each other on Twitter and, as we're sure you expected, say they're in the perfect relationship. Of course this isn't Gia's first rodeo with a jersey. She once dated Carl Pavano and NHLer Chris Campoli. Nothing could possibly go wrong here, could it? Bikinis! Tweets! JUMP!
Three former UCLA Bruins -- Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook and Baron Davis -- have been attending classes this summer in an effort to complete their degrees. On Wednesday they were joined by music mogul and entrepreneur Diddy. No word on what class these clowns are taking, but you can be sure it isn't a class in the Molecular and Medical Pharmacology department.

Rent Miami Heat center Zydrunas Ilgauskas' Soho townhouse for a month! You'll even have $3,000 left over for call girls! The place even comes with an Old School poster in one of the bedrooms. This place has it all. Check it out in the Busted Coverage real estate listings. JUMP!
Shaquille O'Neal has a new girlfriend, Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander, who clocks in at 5-foot-1. We're not saying Shaq's girlfriend needs to be the size of Lisa Leslie but this is a tad ridiculous. Ahh, but Hoopz height isn't nearly as ridiculous as those Jorts Shaq is rocking. Where exactly does one go to buy a pair of Jorts to fit a 7-footer? And there are even more questions about the girlfriend. JUMP!
17 years have passed since Jalen Rose was photographed in his red draft day attire. Yesterday, the ESPN analyst added to his Google Image search results with an orange jumpsuit mugshot that TMZ immediately slapped with its watermark. But don't cry for Rose, who'll be serving somewhere around 18 days for his DUI conviction. He won't get the normal inmate treatment at a suburban Detroit jail. JUMP!
Our good friend and BC contributor Peter Burns hit us up on Twitter this afternoon to tell us his old homeboys from the San Antonio radio days tell him that David Robinson is selling his giant estate. The big news here is that The Admiral lived in a gated community so this is like trying to bust into Fort Knox to figure out the details. We know a few details on the pad: there are very high ceilings, a basketball/tennis court and plenty of neutral décor. JUMP!
Hey, all the douchebags are doing it! Get a leg tattoo of your favorite ballers face and you'll be the coolest douchebag on your block!

If you are willing to get Briant Cardinal tatted on your leg, email us and let us pay for it. firstname.lastname@example.org
Kevin Love may play for one of the worst teams in the NBA (Minnesota Timberwolves), but he's still a hell of a player. So, when he says something, people listen. Love, who's doing duty as a beach volleyball player during the lockout, didn't pull any punches when he was asked this week about the Miami Heat. Sounds like someone might be a little drunk on the Cuervo tequila he's pimping. The quotes - JUMP!
People do stupid things to cars to celebrate their favorite athletes or teams while most of us just attach the car flag to the window on game day. Today we get a look at the Paul Pierce El Camino that screams load of mulch in the afternoon and chick machine after dark. Ladies, don't resist the urge. You know riding in this will be the highlight of your single life. Jump in and let this El Camino show you a good time. JUMP!
A year after using ESPN for "The Decision" LeBron James spurned their awards show, the ESPYs, to return to the scene of the crime and play yesterday in a summer-league basketball game in Cleveland. It's probably a good thing though, since he was made fun of at the EPSYs most of the night. Watch Bron Bron's team get dunked on and The King miss yet another summer league jumper. Video...JUMP-JUMP!
Sixers Jrue Holiday & Women’s World Cup Soccer Player Lauren Cheney May Be Most Wholesome Couple Ever
Philadelphia 76ers guard Jrue Holiday and U.S. Women's World Cup soccer player Lauren Cheney appear to be dating, but may actually be a pair creepy, saccharine robots with great athletic prowess made in a lab somewhere. Holiday is in Dresden where the women came through with a Biblical victory over Brazil. The triumph sent Jrue & Cheney into a Twitter love-making session. JUMP!
Since it's the new fad to track down athlete wedding gift registry listings we figured it was time to check in with Stephen Curry & Ayesha Alexander, who are marrying July 30. This registry was slightly a tough nut to crack because Steph isn't listed as the one of the registrants on the Williams-Sonoma account. His mother, Sonya, is along with the future bride. The highlights: organic towels & a $120 salad serving bowl. More of our favorites from the list - JUMP!
Seriously, we can't stop laughing. Nearly choking to death. Convulsions. Why? Chris Bosh is in the news this morning for what is being dubbed by the Mainstream Media Dorks® as the giraffe's Hangover 3 bachelor party. That Hangover 3 garbage, obviously pumped by some PR retard, is being passed around the Internet. Well, we're here to show you the real party and provide you with tipsters who say Bosh was eating chocolate strawberries at Tao Beach. JUMP!
Our old buddy Gilbert Arenas was up to his antics again last night as he entertained his Twitter followers on a Monday with photos of him planking - sorta. Probably not cool to his young, impressionable fans was the shot where Agent Zero is planking face down in a hot tub. There's also the shot of his daughter planking - sorta. Please NBA, lockout these guys. It's content gold. Bored NFLers and NBAers might be the best thing to ever happen to the Internet. PHOTOS - JUMP!
The "Jimmer Fredette is kinda like Tim Tebow" train rolled into Sacramento this weekend with the introduction of the franchise draft picks at the Arden Fair Mall. Yes, a mall. With that crappy high school stage bunting. Yes, with a cheesy intro DJ. And lots of bored Sacramento fans ready to jump on the back of a 6-2 gunner from BYU. This is what basketball has become in Sac Town. Catch the fever - AFTER THE JUMP - with a mall full of Jimmer fans.
