Don’t know who Brooke Knight is? Well with only 6,234 Twitter followers apparently a lot of people don’t know who...
Who would’ve thought we’d be running two Scottie Pippen stories in an eight day period here on BC? After Scottie...
Nigga please. Hell yes we figured black dudes would be frantic over the release of NBA2K13 on Tuesday. And they were. Nothing gets black dudes fired up like the return of the NBA and video games. They picked up a copy after midnight Tuesday and haven't stopped playing. Nigga-bombs and smack talk left and right. Example: "Buy a broke nigga 2K13 & watch his eyes light up." That's why we get up in the morning - honesty on Twitter. JUMP!
Remember last week when news began to surface that Cowboys.com was now a gay dating site? A place where you can "find your own cowboy", so to speak? That was hilarious and cool that somebody got the best of Jerry Jones, but we have something that might top that. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has pulled the ultimate bad-ass move by purchasing Nets.com! Not only that but he threw in a little jab to Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov...in Russian! JUMP!
Big news coming out of Philadelphia early this morning. No, it wasn't the Eagles third lucky win of the season...it was this heroin bust by the Upper Darby police. An undercover cop made a sizable purchase of 140 bags of heroin last Thursday. Standard on the mean streets of Philly, but something was different about these baggies: they were labled "LeBron James". Yep, The King himself is now officially an endorser of Philadelphia's finest heroin! JUMP!
Its been three long years since Marko Jaric has been on an NBA roster, but the wait is finally over...for now. ESPN has announced that the Bulls signed Jaric to their training camp roster, giving the 33-year-old another shot at the NBA. Why would we care about a random scrub like Jaric? Don't let those three years Jaric spent in Europe fudge your memory...he's the lucky S.O.B. who's married to Adriana Lima! JUMP!
Scottie Pippen turned 47 on Tuesday. Yes, it's weird that he's almost 50 but the biggest thing we took from his birthday is just how hot his wife is. The lucky lady is Larsa Pippen, who has been married to Scottie since 1997. The happy couple went out partying for Scottie's birthday, and lowanbehold Michael Jordan showed up...looking like a scrub! JUMP!
Having spent seven out of 11 of his pro career playing in Charlotte, one would assume Gerald Wallace would've splurged and bought himself an insane house. The guy has amassed nearly $63,000,000 in career earnings and is slated to make another $40,000,000 over the next four years in Brooklyn. That's some serious cash to only be living in a $1.6 million house. Looks like Wallace is unloading this dump for some nicer digs up in New York. JUMP!
Before we get to the purpose of this post, lets all take a minute and realize just how terrifying of a man Reggie Evans is. Ok...moving on. Veterans of the newly minted Brooklyn Nets are already up to some mischief. Deron Williams and Evans pulled a prank on "rookie" MarShon Brooks by filling his Acura with popcorn. We put rookie in quotes because Brooks had already finished his first season. He was actually a trooper and responded well to the prank. JUMP!
This has to be James Harden right? Judging by the circumstances it's extremely unlikely that this is in fact Harden at a Towson football game, but this bro is a spot on doppelganger for the bearded assassin. If this is in fact Harden, BC might have just cost Harden some fans in a year where he is heading into free agency. Rocking both a spurs hat and a Tim Duncan jersey, can't imagine Thunder fans would be excited to see their star in enemy gear! JUMP!
By now we all know that last night was an absolute fiasco. Former Seattle Sonics guard Gary Payton took to Twitter after the game congratulating the Seahawks on the "incredible" win. Naturally some Packers fans were very salty and one felt the need to reply directly to The Glove. User @Shaun_King33 got all NSFW on Payton really quickly, and growing up in Oakland, Payton stopped taking sh*t from people at a very young age. Read the full Twitter exchange here. JUMP!
Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger is a real man of the people. You want to know what its like to live like an NBA player for a month? All you gotta do is round up a few of your buddies and pony up $25,000 and you can rent out Granger's L.A. house for a month. Why Granger has sunk millions into a house that is over 2,000 miles from where he plays basketball is beyond us, but hey, it has a sweet pool! With mountain views! JUMP!
Even when JaVale McGee is trying to do something nice, he can't seem to get it right. Yesterday on Twitter, McGee offered a free Chipotle lunch to his first ten fans who showed up. You'd assume tons of fans would take him up on this. Hell, at least more than ten, right? Wrong. One person showed up and claimed their free burrito. McGee has over 66,000 followers yet only one felt the desire to meet him and claim a free lunch?! Bummer. JUMP!
Yao Ming played all eight of his NBA seasons in Houston after they drafted him #1 overall in 2002. Knowing Houston was going to be his non-Chinese home for a while he decided to drop some cash on this place. Complete with some of the highest ceilings we've seen and a pink jacuzzi, it doesn't look like Yao spared any expenses. Seriously though, we can't get past this pink Jacuzzi! JUMP!
In the market for a life-size portrait of Shaq? How about one of Shaq in a Superman suit? If so, we've got you covered. A Newport Beach area Craigslist user posted these masterpieces yesterday and somehow they haven't sold yet. For only $3,995 each, these paintings could find their way into your basement, office or living room. Supposedly they're valued at $100,000 each so $3,995 is practically getting them for free! JUMP!
As if LeBron James wasn't a big enough a-hole. He and Nike thought it was a good idea to charge $315 for his latest pair of sneakers, the LeBron 10's. These fancy kicks come with built-in chips that can record how long you have run or how high you have jumped...a.k.a. a white boys nightmare. Anyways, ballers were stretching their accounts thin with $120 Jordans, now LeBron is raising the stakes! Don't think Twitter let him get away with it.JUMP!
What do you do when you get shipped from a city you have called home for eight years? Sell your $4.5 million mansion of course! Joe Johnson, now in Brooklyn, is looking to unload his Atlanta home. Can't imagine he's feeling too much pressure to get this beast off his hands, as he's due to make nearly $20 million this season...and over $20 million each season until 2015-16. Have $4.5 million sitting around? JUMP!
Remember that insane twitpic sent out back in June? The one that had Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice in a tiny white bikini. Well that same Stephanie Rice is now being linked to Kobe Bryant and the two just may be dating! According to a photo Rice tweeted in late July, the two met then and have been in contact since then. Fast-forward a few weeks and the two have been spotted multiple times since the games began in London. JUMP!
Team USA has been handling their business in tune-up games leading up to the Olympics. With the exception, of the Argentina game, each victory has been a cakewalk. However the team looks like it is trying to catch as much rest as possible, especially on the plane. Kevin Love snapped an epic Instagram pic of six of his teammates and head coach Mike Krzyzewski passed out en route to London. Impressive ability to catch all seven guys out cold. JUMP!
Gilbert, Gilbert, Gilbert. Where to begin. Back in '08 he was wrapping up the prime of his career. Arenas got on his high horse, started dropping millions into this place and before he knew it, it was 2012 and he was struggling to find an NBA team. That's about the time these morons realize that million dollar pool might not have been the best "investment". At only $3.5 million this beauty could be yours! JUMP!
If you are in the market for a massive luxury van then today is your lucky day. Current owners "John & Rosemary" have had enough of this vehicle and are trying to unload it to a lucky buyer. Yes, this tricked out van was formerly owned by Shaq himself...as if the masive Superman logo on the grill wasn't enough of a hint. Shaq was ahead of the curve when he decided to sell this beast. JUMP!
Anderson Varejao is a complete d-bag. Always has been, always will be. Take last night, for example. The guy walks into a Brazil-USA friendly and acts like a complete jagoff, fouling guys like it's Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Of course Americans on Twitter were pissed off with a guy slamming bodies and acting like he's about to put a gold medal around his neck. Complete dick moves, Varejao. JUMP!
It's been a wild couple days for New York Knick fans. Between the Jeremy Lin offer sheet fiasco and the Jason Kidd DUI, tabloids have material for days. The Knicks have a pretty decent (and old) roster on paper, but there are good portions of their fan base who are at wits end. They are dreading seeing Carmelo Anthony shoot 30 times a game. They are pissed to see Jeremy Lin skipping town for Houston. They hate the teams owner James Dolan. JUMP!
Steve Nash of the Los Angeles Lakers just had some fans pass him some Keystone Light while he was driving in LA. He seemed to love it so much he posted it on TwitVid. He even said "the fans have been pretty good so far". These fans are going to love Nash until he misses a game winning shot but in all likeliness, Nash will stay clutch as usual. The Lakers look like a team to be reckoned with next year with their recent acquisitions. Video after the JUMP!
This, my friends, is desperation in its finest state. Former Chicago Bull/Milwaukee Buck/New Orleans Hornet Marcus Fizer must be hurting for cash because he is selling his 1999 Mercedes Benz CL500 for $10,000. Might not sound that outrageous, but he dropped $20,000 into customization alone. Chalk this up to another stupid athlete binge purchase early on in their careers. Act fast because the auction is ending in four days! JUMP!
It's been quite a while since our last #TeamBJNBA update. 12 days to be exact. We were going through withdrawal, wondering what Sarah Jay and Angelina Castro were up to. Well, it appears that the girls ran into some trouble when the NBA sent them a cease & desist order. Apparently the lawyers didn't appreciate the two busted porn "stars" using the NBA logo and the likeness of Wade, James and Bosh on their site. JUMP!
The city of Birmingham, Alabama is trying to get it's own NBA team "not only for the entertainment but also to help local businesses and create jobs in the city of Birmingham". The movement has it's own official website, Twitter account, their own song, and videos about them. According to the website, this movement was started by a 15 year old and is gaining steam. Would you go to an NBA game in Birmingham, Alabama? JUMP!
In case you missed it, Tony Parker was caught in the middle of an ugly scrum between Chris Brown and Drake last month. Things escalated and Parker ended up in surgery after shards of glass ended up in his eye. Enter the new specs. We understand he needs to wear them to prevent blindness, but we're just not feeling it. Not sure if its the stupid face he's making or the glasses themselves. JUMP!
Ever since Jeremy Lin made his Knicks debut last season, literally anything the guy does is newsworthy. That's why when he signed an offer sheet, the internet nearly imploded. People are so damn confused by this. Half of Twitter thinks that he is already heading to Houston. The guy signed an offer sheet and odds are the Knicks match it. Relax Twitter nation, no need for all this NSFW Lin hate! JUMP!
For only $3000 dollars, you can buy this custom painted Oklahoma City Thunder car that has all of the player's faces on it. The car has James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, and Kendrick Perkins on it as well as a window on the driver's side that doesn't work. It's only got 125,000 miles on it and can be purchased on Craigslist. The car may have been worth a lot more if the Thunder were able to knock out the Miami Heat. JUMP!
David Stern, last night, was booed unmercifully from the minute he walked onto the stage all the way through the first round. The Jersey/NYC bros treated Stern like a corrupt, third-world dictator. After about two hours of harassment, we thought Stern was done bathing in the hate, but we were oh-so-wrong. Twitter came through once again and all the idiots came out of the woodwork to let the world know how they feel about the evil commish!
Now it makes sense why Landry Fields couldn't make a damn jump shot last season for the Knicks. The guy probably couldn't stop think about his girlfriend. Elaine Alden, his model girlfriend, is all about Twitpics and posted a gem earlier today. She's stupid hot and she knows it. After going through her library of twitpics, we pulled the best of the best...65 to be exact.JUMP!
