Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose doesn't pay for sex, at least not when you don't charge him up front. Rose allegedly stiffed a prostitute after a meeting in Memphis... or so we learned via Twitter today. You can take this for what it's worth, since we don't really know anything about the person who tweeted the story, other than she learned her whorin' techniques from a white girl. We should all be so lucky. Check it!
From BC Afternoon Editor Monty: You'd think an NBA player not named Doug Christie would wear the pants in his relationship. Apparently, we need to think again when it comes to Jimmer Fredette & his WAG Whitney Wonnacott after seeing their Halloween costume. Oh yes, it's coordinated! It's wholesome! And it's also totally unmanly. That's why we're revoking Jimmer's man card until future notice. Check it!
Hell, he's got nothing else to do, so Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hung out at Carolina Panthers practice today. While he was there he threw footballs at the goal post with Cam Newton & Co., which, it turns out, is a game players play in their free time. We didn't see Newton come through, but Curry did... and then he posed for the camera. Here's the video. Check it!
We've got a real value for you today and you can also help out an NBA players while he's not getting paid! Miami Heat forward Mike Miller's Miami mansion is on the block for just $9 million. We're talking three stories, six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a bomb-ass pool and a piece of land right next to the ocean. Not only that, but you'll help Miller make close to $4 million in profit. Here are the details and the photos. Check it!
As the NBA and the NBA Players meet today with David Stern promising a war the athletes don't want if they pass on his 50-50 revenue split offer. In other words, either the players call Stern's bluff or take the deal. If Stern isn't bluffing, the NBA season will, in effect, be over. The players will dig in. So will the owners. The real losers here are all those workers caught in the crossfire, such as Miami Heat dancer Ashley F. Her career hangs in the balance. JUMP!
Via BC Assignment Editor Monty: So, (I) really feel weird about saying this, but it almost looks like Lamar Odom's wife, Khloe Kardashian is suddenly passable as a woman. We know. Read that sentence again. We gotta give credit where credit is due, though. We were really disappointed in Lamar for a long time. He married the ugly Kardashian sister, but hell, she got rid of the adam's apple and found a gym. Check it!
The Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries joke marriage is no more and the people are sad. Some fans got together in New York this week to hold a candlelight vigil in honor of the fake nuptials and we've got the photos to prove it. We've also got the latest prop bets on Kardashian's next target from BoDog.com. Tiger Woods? Sure, why the hell not! Actually, we're not taking that action. There are some nice bets, though. Check it!
Should we be surprised that there's a sense of urgency from Baron Davis to unload his 9,000 sq. ft. Vegas mansion? Not really. Not like homeslice is getting an NBA paycheck. But all of you figuring this is just a lockout real estate dump need to realize Baron has had this pad on the market since '09. Now it's empty & perfect for a porn czar looking to shoot MILF videos. Just think of all the scenes available under one roof. Pool scene. Crazy ass shower scene. JUMP!
If you're in the NBA and you're a real baller, you have to let everyone know by getting a badass back tattoo. Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is in the NBA, a baller and, of course, has a back tattoo. It is, perhaps, the most unoriginal back tattoo in the league, though. Why? Rondo jacked the Rolls-Royce logo and had it burnt into his skin. Check out Rondo and the rest of the NBA's back ink in this gallery. Jump!
Denver Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin put his ignorance on display for all the world to see this week. Martin got in a flame war on Twitter with some fans after they said he was overpaid. It culminated with Martin saying he hopes his haters get AIDS and die. He then denied making the statement and closing his account. Brilliant! We've got the blow-by-blow rundown for you right here. Check it!
A few tweets over the last 24 hours included some interesting tidbits from the Euro basketball league. It has come to our attention that Marko Jaric doesn't have a roster spot. Basketball guru @rafael_uehara writes, "European season officialy underway and haven't seen Igor Rakocevic, Marko Jaric or Bostjan Nachbar in a squad." Um, what? That 32 yr old scrub can't even find a team in Turkey? This means Adriana is now a WAG Breadwinner! JUMP!
Get this, David Robinson hadn't tweeted in four days until dropping some emotional feelings on us this afternoon. Says the Admiral: I miss Steve Jobs already. I hope the team at Apple can keep it going. Yes, that tweet came from David's iPad. What's the former Spurs great up to these days? We're pretty sure he just reads his Bible on the iPad and watches Navy football games on Saturday afternoons. In other words, he's as boring as you imagined.
The Milwaukee Bucks' Stephen Jackson has a new rap video for his song "The Season" and it's, uh... we'll let you decide. If you like videos with lots of bling, piles of money laying around, talk of the streets, dudes hangin' with the homies and stuff about the NBA lockout, this is definitely up your alley. Stack Jack, as Jackson calls himself, is no Eazy E, but he's definitely something... Check it!
Orlando Magic guard Gilbert Arenas may not be so pimp on the basketball court anymore, but he's dressing up as one off it. Thankfully, we can look forward to much more of Gil's clown antics, since it doesn't look like there's going to be an NBA season. Check out the full story of Gilbert Arenas' pimp suit and the full-body photo right here. Bang it!
