Know how we know NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin is dating out of his league? His girlfriend, Jordan Fish, used to shake it 40 or so times per season for NBA fans. It's extremely rare for NASCAR guys to dabble in the cheerleader/dancer market for a simple reason: the drivers used to be way too hilljack-y. Ms. Fish should obviously be congratulated on breaking down the barrier. JUMP!
Remember that hit that Udonis Haslem put on Tyler Hansborough during Game 5 of the NBA Playoffs? Well, it cost him a game suspension and we found out today that it was intentional and he would do it again. Haslem claimed that it was to defend his Miami Heat teammate Dwayne Wade who was fouled hard earlier in the game. He went on to say "I can't imagine anything I wouldn't do for Dwayne". JUMP!
How are we getting you ready for Game 7 between the Celtics-76ers (ABC, 8 p.m.) with another NBA dancer find from Asher. He went out looking for a Celtics dancer and came back with Atlanta native Faren, who just happned to star in Cee Lo Green's "It's OK," video. Do we really care who faces the Miami Heat after this game? Not really. Let's just get this series over with already. JUMP!
Yes, there is basketball tonight in Boston (Game 5 vs. PHI | 7 p.m. TNT) as the Celtics-76ers series moves back to TD Garden. Just when you figure the Celtics are going to bury Philly, Garnett goes out and has a 3-of-12 shooting night. That said, we'll still get a Game 6 in Philly where you'll be able to scope out dancer Cassie one more time in 2012. Asher has been hunting for an NBA red head for you freaks. Here is what he found. JUMP!
Dwayne Wade was driving to the basket on Roy Hibbert during the Miami Heat-Indiana Pacers NBA playoff game and things got kind of chippy. Roy Hibbert didn't even pretend to go for the block and just grabbed Wade and pulled him down and held onto his arm. Wade and Danny Granger confronted each other after the play where both teams got involved and the officials needed to pull them back. The play costed the Pacers a technical foul. JUMP!
Snoop Dogg himself showed up to the Los Angeles Lakers-Oklahoma City Thunder playoff game last night in this Rastafarian style hat and crazy sunglasses. Of course the sunglasses had a flip up cover with smiley faces on them (why wouldn't they?). I'm sure he was just wearing them so you couldn't see how red his eyes were. Anyways, the Lakers came back from a pretty hefty deficit against the Thunder to win the game with a crazy finish. HT @Jose3030. JUMP!
Asher is all over the NBA dancers lately for two reasons: (1.) The guy is in love with cheerleaders. Like thinks about them pretty much every day and (2.) He's on the hunt for the NBA dancer with the craziest college major. Today he makes a return trip to Oklahoma City to visit with Alexis. Her major: Chemistry. Not going to find one of those on the Lakers Girls. Once again, this is just how they roll in OKC. JUMP!
A Stephon Marbury statue was unveiled on the lawn of the MasterCard Center where the Beijing Ducks won their first ever CBA championship. If it wasn't weird enough that China has a Stephon Marbury statue then guess who gave the commencement speech? Dennis Rodman. Why did Dennis Rodman give the commencement speech? We have absolutely no idea. JUMP!
Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics thought it would be a good idea to try an alley oop to his teammate who was ahead of the defense. Well, Ryan Hollins, was not prepared for the alley oop but went up for it anyways. He ended up catching the ball, missing the dunk, and landing flat on his ass. It's just good television. The Boston Celtics lead the Philadelphia 76ers 1 to nothing in the NBA Playoffs. JUMP!
Asher has spent the better part of three weeks investigating the Clippers dance team. His mission? Find the chick with the craziest career goals. That led to Katrina, just another hot chick using her dance career to get into the nursing field. Or that's just what she tells her parents. Nursing seems like a giant waste of time when she could just marry right into millions and not have to waste time wiping down old dude asses. Her call, though. JUMP!
Anything worse than being pressured into going to a stupid parade with the GF/wife/lesbian lover and sitting there without any poon to peruse? The chick clowns are always old hags who plays Bozo's wife on weekends and fire candy at your face. The National Cherry Blossom Festival this year changed parades forever, in our minds, via the inclusion of the Washington Wizards and Redskins cheerleaders. It was pretty much a huge butt-off between the ladies. JUMP!
Why do we want the Atlanta Hawks to prolong their home season as long as possible, even though they're down 3-1 against the Celtics in the NBA playoffs? Simple answer: Crystal Hopkins. She's one of the team's dancers & BC Cheerleader Stalker Asher put the pieces together on this 23-year-old who also has dreams of being a country singer. Did we mention the great rack and her dancing ability? God, please let the Celtics fold and the Hawks advance. JUMP!
After the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Dallas Mavericks, Russell Westbrook was asked some questions by reporter Johnathon Tjarks. Tjarks, who works for RealGM.com, asked Westbrook if he would consider James Harden a maximum contract player. Westbrook dodged the question and responded to Tjarks with a "No more questions for you bro". Video after the JUMP!
Chris Paul brought his son to the post game press conference after the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Memphis Grizzlies. Chris was discussing a specific part of the game and asked his son to imitate Blake Griffin's game face. The kid did a spot on imitation of it and the crowd loved it. Thanks kid for creating a meme for us. The LA Clippers lead the series 2-1 against the Memphis Grizzlies. JUMP!
This is why you never leave your star players on the court when the game is in hand. Derrick Rose went down with an injury to what looked like his knee after falling awkwardly on it. The Chicago Bulls took on the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs where the Bulls pulled out the win. We'll see if Derrick Rose is able to return for Game 2 or if this will effect this series or series to come. HT Deadspin JUMP!
What exactly do they feed women in the SEC that makes them turn into either an NBA dancer or a boutique owner in a Dallas galleria? And they're all blonde. It's as if the Gods figured that women in the south would be good at three things: Shakin' it for NBA fans, selling fat women clothes they shouldn't be wearing and being hot trophy wives. It's an amazing world God has created. Take Mavs dancer Meghan. She's already an all star at two of the three. JUMP!
The Los Angeles Lakers took on the Oklahoma City Thunder today where some 'extracurricular' activity happened during the game. Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, elbowed James Harden in the face in completely violent fashion. Of course, Metta World Peace pretended like nothing happened while Harden layed on the ground in obvious pain. I'm sure David Stern is going to take a look at this play and possible hand out some punishments. JUMP!
Miami Heat president Pat Riley just sold his 80,000 square foot mansion for $16.75 million dollars. Not only does it overlook beautiful Biscayne Bay but it has one of the most unbelievable pools we've ever seen. This two story house is basically perfect for a guy. Not only does it come with a 103 inch plasma television, but it has it's own private beach with sand. JUMP!
The Orlando Magic are a complete mess heading into the playoffs so the logical move from us to ease the pain for fans is to dig into the lovely dance team and pick out a favorite. Asher went digging and came up with former Florida State cheerleader Jessica. She's part Italian/Irish/German, which seems to be the perfect combination to creating the hottest NBA dancers. JUMP!
Ahh, that time of year when we unleash Asher on NBA dancer Facebook and Twitter accounts. The guy is under strict orders to start building a database of the hottest cheerleaders who'll be shaking it during the playoffs. Drunk photos will result in a pay raise. Drunk photos with Mark Cuban will result in a $25 bonus. Drunk photos with Shaq & Darius Miles makin' it rain on said cheerleader is worth $100. No drunk photos today. Just Heat dancer Sophie who is from Singapore. JUMP!
We're headed to the Pacific Northwest to check in on the Portland Trail Blazers' Dancers. Specifically Amanda, a gorgeous blonde with a big smile! An outdoorsy kinda girl that loves to fish, bike and hike, Amanda also knows a thing or two about wearing tight ass dresses that show off all of her best parts. She's also persistent. It took this firecracker five attempts before she made the Trailblazers dance team. JUMP!
The one area where Michael Jordan has been solid in his GM duties for the Charlotte Bobcats has been in the dancer department. What, he's not in charge of hiring dancers? Um, he should be claiming responsibility because the basketball team he puts on the court is horrid - 5-32. The only good news at a Bobcats game? You get to see Lindsay shake it during timeouts. Otherwise, this basketball outpost is a giant waste of time. JUMP!
This little kid looks psyched for the Boston Celtics-New York Knicks game today. The other guy in the picture? Not so much. Jeremy Lin struggled in the beginning of the game so there wasn't much Linsanity. Spike Lee showed up in another ridiculous outfit. Doc Rivers gave us his best confused/what the hell just happened face. Steve Novak showed that he just does not miss 3 pointers. JUMP!
What's the best part of the NBA season? The dunk contest hands down. This year's contest definitely did not disappoint and we caught the best dunks on video for you. Diddy came out to help Chase Buddinger make a dunk in which Chase jumped over Diddy. Another guy came out and dunked over a motorcycle. Kevin Hart showed up again after getting kicked out of the game yesterday to be a prop. JUMP!
Spike Lee showed up in Orlando wearing his most hilarious Jeremy Lin shirt representing his New York Knicks fandom. The shirt is absolutely hilarious and there is no lack of celebrities in town this weekend. They brought in Jay-Z and Kanye West to do the intro song to clips of basketball that was fantastic. The skills competition and the dunk contest all after the JUMP!
It's no secret that Jeremy Lin is making waves in his first eight starts in the NBA. Just look at all of the signs by New York Knicks fans cheering on Lin. Even Spike Lee showed up in some weird outfit to cheer on the New York Knicks as they took on the defending champion Dallas Mavericks. Mark Zuckerberg was also in the crowd to be a witness to Linsanity. JUMP!
While the douchebags at Around the Horn are debating whether Mark Cuban is right about the NBA being jerkoffs for not scheduling them into Washington D.C. to visit the Prez, we were investigating reports of Mark in Miami for New Year's. What we know is that Cuban was hammered (or just looked that way) at Wet Bar Miami, according to those in attendance, including a Notre Dame nose tackle. Frosted Flakes shirt on New Year's for a 53-year-old-man? Ok. JUMP!
It's the typo that is causing lots of LOLs around the basketball and newspaper world as the Charlotte Observer seemed to have some deadline issues with this morning's sports page. Of course newspaper/media insider Jim Romenesko went searching for answers. A sports editor tried to explain how a copy editor went to correct the disc spelling to disk and instead ended up with dick. Ahh, old media, so embarrassed by a random 'dick' in the newspaper (via @RosinskiBill)
Thanks to the guys at The Big Lead we get to see Mr. Cunnilingus this morning saluting the ladies during overtime of the Pacers 98-91 win over the Cavs. We're guessing Indiana student, Christmas break, climbs mountains (hence the North Face coat) and had at least 5-6 cold ones during this classic tilt. Now comes your part. Name his ass. Let's find a woman who can either support or reject Mr. Cunnilingus. This shouldn't take too long: email@example.com
WCNC is Charlotte is reporting that Michael Jordan has popped the question to longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto. The source responsible for the engagement news leak says that MJ did the deed on Christmas Day. He then watched the Bobcats season opener with Derek Jeter on Monday. Boss move, Prieto. That's how a guy puts his foot down and claims his turf. You get a ring, access to his millions and His Airness gets to talk Nike with Jetes. PHOTOS of Prieto - JUMP!
We'd read earlier this year that Mark Cuban had this weird way of getting ready for a Mavs basketball game, especially during the 2011 NBA Finals. The guy literally gets on a stair climber and gets in a workout. Oh, & because he's a showman, Cuban also allows the media in to ask questions. Take this Sunday. There was Cubes, 30 minutes before showtime on his stair climber, catching the end of the Celtics-Knicks and just showering the Dallas media with billionaire sweat. JUMP!
Ever get a bank account boner? Let me paint a picture for you. Imagine buying Cam Newton's game-worn BCS pants before Newton is even drafted. You spend $1,500 and are instantly called a "f-ing moron." Then the guy is drafted #1 overall and then goes out and accounts for 34 Panthers' TDs. Rookie of the Year, rookie records destroyed, blah, blah, blah. But then the guy shows up at last night's Hornets game & is a fashion icon. That's a bank account boner. Let's get rolling!
Look, Jill Martin's face isn't getting any younger, but that rack somehow manages to stay as lovely as ever. It was just 25 days ago that we introduced you to the Knicks MSG 'features' sideline reporter and the rack is still holding together nicely from what we can see yesterday in Miami. Usually 25 days for a chick of Jill's age (what, late 30s) is like an eternity. All hell can break loose. But there the rack was, in shape. Hands down best sideline reporter rack in the NBA. JUMP!
For those of you not in the know, Sunday is opening day for the NBA & the NFL is holding its normal Sunday games tomorrow. That means all eyes will be on Dallas where the Mavs open their shortened defense of the NBA title against the Miami Heat (2:30 EST, ABC). Blah, blah, blah. It's still the NBA and we're still bored by the sport until early June. For now we're fixated on the dancers and how Shaq is doing in the TNT booth. Today we get to know the Mavs Dancers. JUMP!
Merry Christmas, fool. So there was this big release last night at midnight for Michael Jordan's new shoes, Concords. That meant street thugs, whitey, gangbangers and ever other form of punk you could think of broke away from his/her video game marathon to hit the mall. Then all hell broke loose. Thugs tore doors off stores, busted down doors and brawled in the Brooklyn streets. The shoes retail for $180 and there were limited supplies. Powderkeg! JUMP!
You used to wait anxiously all year for Christmas Day when there would be a Nintendo, a Ken Griffey Jr. 1989 Upper Deck rookie card, a super-cool Alf doll or even a Cabbage Patch doll for those of you metrosexuals who were of age during that period. Now you've grown up and just want to sleep late and wake up to a woman such as those on our 2011 Sexy WAGs of Christmas Past & Present. Of course they're in a relationship, but 'tis the season to dream big and remember what the Christmas spirit is all about. We have Adriana Lima, Danielle Lloyd, Erica Ellyson, Gemma Atkinson & more celebrating the Yuletide. JUMP!
