BC Associate Editor Monty sent us this dispatch: I know it's disappointing, but your plan to be totally original and get a tattoo of Dallas Mavericks' forward and NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki tattooed on your ass is going to need some work. Someone has already beat you to it. His name is Derek Dilday and he did it because... well, he's a dumbass.
They honored their new favorite son J.J. Barea with a parade in San Juan, Puerto Rico this afternoon. Unfortunately, a motorcycle rally broke out during the sad, one-float parade for the World Champion Dallas Mavericks guard. And where is the Miss Universe girlfriend? Wait until you see what Barea says about a Puerto Rico parade vs. a Dallas championship parade. The nerve! JUMP!
It's been a whirlwind 10 days for Tyson Chandler. He's won an NBA championship, been a guest judge on the Miss U.S.A. pageant and then closed Monday on the sale of his Chicago mansion that had been on the market for 4 years. Yes, 4! Originally purchased for $4mm and then listed for $5mm, Chandler finally succumbed to the real estate market with a sale of the 7,309 sq. ft. home in Northfield, IL for $2.1mm. Photos and details of what Chandler just sold - JUMP!
Mark Cuban, still riding high from taking a leak with the Larry O'Brien, has filed court papers that serve as a response to 2010 papers filed by Ross Perot Jr. claiming that Cuban was a "careless" owner. It's well documented that Perot Jr. is a nutjob who once spent millions to set a world record as first person to fly a helicopter around the world. These court papers should once and forever keep Jr. quiet and busy cleaning those sweet lenses. JUMP!
Possibly sensing his days in San Antonio are numbered, Tony Parker threw a HUGE house party Sunday and allowed half of San Antonio to show up for a DJ'd blowout bash. We're not talking Hollywood elite at the $7.1mm house that he and Eva Longoria started to build in 2008. This was straight up hood rats that seemed to be handpicked off Twitter. Think: hoochies that Eva would never let on her 16.5 acre spread. See Tony's bash and this insane pool - JUMP!
Our coworkers at Coed tipped us off to a chick on Twitter who goes by the handle @Heathero14 who who already her Dallas Mavericks NBA Championship shirt. As an added bonus, Heather took the time to do some mirror shots of the new shirt. This combination of skin, her fandome and our need to post a gallery of Heather's greatest work has resulted in her being named "World's Sexiest Dallas Mavericks Fan." Those wishing to compete with Heather are encouraged to email us. email@example.com Gallery! JUMP!
The Giant Ass was on Leno last night to tell the world how the engagement process went down between her and Kris Humphries (yes, this is our job to track such stupid garbage). That crap bored us to death, but the moneyshot had yet to be dropped. Um, yes, Kim says there will be a prenup which has our hands wringing. Remember yesterday? Yeah, we bought a $22.50 napkin for these millionaires. More Giant Ass pics & Kim's prenup reasoning - JUMP.
Leave it to German newspapers to make the NBA Finals into a race story. Welt Online, one of Germany's largest daily papers, is considered to be a conservative voice of the citizenry. The paper is also now famous within the sports blogosphere as the rag that allowed Peter Schelling to turn Dirk vs. the Heat into Dirk vs. black guys who have tats and "wrinkled faces," as Pete writes. Seriously, this guy will probably never drink for free at Club LIV. More of the racist barrage - JUMP!
And the photos keep rolling in. At some point we figured there would be a shot of Mark Cuban doing something crazy with the Larry O'Brien trophy but it never crossed our minds that someone would snap the billionaire going boss move by taking the goods to take for a leak. That's exactly what Busted Coverage came across this afternoon. Mark's legend officially grows. FULL SFW PHOTO - JUMP!!
Keeping with our tradition of buying wedding gifts for super-rich people who make their wedding registry public, Busted Coverage slapped the plastic down for a gift this afternoon. The Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries (marrying October 31!) registry at Gearys Beverly Hills hit the Internets and guess who bought them the second gift? Busted Coverage dropped $31 for a napkin. Someone else bought them a single steak knife for $50. DETAILS - JUMP!
They're cheerleaders. Enough of this "NBA Dancer" garbage. If you put pom-poms in a chick's hand & have them go nuts after a made basket, they're cheerleaders. Clear? Now, let's tell you how the Dallas Mavericks cheerleaders have to be one of the most secretive units in all of sports. We've literally spent hundreds of man hours trying to show you something - maybe a bikini - other than the normal cheerleader uniform pics. In the end, a tipster came knocking. Casie! Boat time! JUMP!
What is a ridiculously wealthy NBAer to do with his summer and a near certain lockout looming? Head to the World Series of Poker! Paul Pierce is in Vegas. So is Donyell Marshall. Both were playing yesterday in a $1500 Hold 'Em event and Pierce decided to roll out the most intimidating card protector we've ever seen. Yes, that would be a Celtics world champion brick ring on his right hand next to the Red Bull. Paul's poker day revisited - JUMP!
Dallas Mavericks' guard J.J. Barea is one lucky little Puerto Rican. He's now an NBA champion & dating fellow Puerto Rican Zuleyka Rivera, who was Miss Universe in 2006. The guy goes from riding the pine, to NBA Finals stud, dropping three-point bombs and driving past LeBron. But you knew that. What you might have missed were his WAG's tweets. Translations, please! JUMP!
Ohio Governor John Kasich jumped on the "bash LeBron" bandwagon this afternoon by signing a resolution praising the Dallas Mavericks and their fans. Part of the resolution reads "Whereas, the proud city of Cleveland and the entire state of Ohio share in the excitement of Dallas Mavericks fans everywhere." That's right, Bron Bron, even state governments are against you. Full resolution in all its glory - JUMP!
And the photos keep rolling in. We now have Dirk Nowitzki appearing slightly hammered making his infamous Dirk face before or after his two-handed swig off this soon-to-be most Googled Ace of Spade bottle in history. We've seen estimates from Twitter dorks that these bottles go for $80k in the clubs. Frankly, we could care less. It's more than a case of Summer Shandy so it's expensive. There are also reports that Cuban ordered 100 regular Ace of Spade bottles to keep the party "popping" as the kids call it these days. DRUNK DIRK FACE FULL SHOT! JUMP!
Who knew we'd be talking about 31-year-old has-been Rashard Lewis at this point of June? But we are, and dude was trending for most of yesterday afternoon thanks to rumormongering gossip sites saying LeBron's poor Game 4 was due to Lewis hooking up with Bron's baby mama. How horrible to start such a rumor. Anyway, we found that Lewis was actually partying on South Beach this past weekend and was drunk. Your move, Stephen A. Smith.
