Is there a Holy Grail of athlete real estate? Yes, there is and it's the mansion in Highland Park, IL that Michael Jordan is trying to sell. We go through these athlete real estate deals on a daily basis and this $29,000,000 pad speaks for itself. Even Pete Sampras's mansion can't compete. Ever wanted your own basketball arena? Ever wanted 27,000 sq. ft. of house? Are you a new Facebook millionaire? Jump on this one!
While the Lakers are bitching about one thing or another, the Los Angeles Clippers are having a good time and leading the Pacific Division. Yeah, we still don't believe it either, but maybe it's because they're a bunch of stupid kids who don't understand the significance of the Clippers leading anything. Take center DeAndre Jordan, who likes to take photos of his teammates sleeping. Creepy, but also funny. Here are some of the best. JUMP!
Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah just had a birthday. He went to St. Bart's to celebrate. Neither of these things are important, though. What is important is who he celebrated with. We don't know her name, but the ugliest dude in the NBA was actually spotted with a fairly hot lass. We can only attribute how this happened to the fact that he's rich. There's really no other explanation. Here's a look. Won't you please tell us more? JUMP!
Seems kinda odd that Scott Skiles, head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, would put this massive house on the market in late February. His team is 13-20, but he's under contract through the '12-13 season. Is he just tired of the 4,700 sq. ft. of spaciousness? Is he just downsizing to a 2,500 sq. ft. pad to cut down on window cleaning? Skiles doesn't seem to be a dumb guy. Dude won't need this place in about 8 months. JUMP!
Been wondering what former Georgetown legend Michael Sweetney is up to? He's actually alive & playing in the Puerto Rican league. That's his current photo (left) and Sweets in 2010 (right). As you can see, he's been cutting weight. He's listed at 288 pounds. Of course that's generous. This guy actually averaged 15 ppg & 25 minutes played per game in 2011. Does your NBA team need a big body down the stretch? Sweets is all ears. (via @JohnnyNBA)
What did we learn this weekend in sports? Did you watch that all-star game? LeBron still wants someone else to take the last shot. We had one guy saying he wasn't open to take the final shot. Dude, he's supposed to be the world's best basketball player. Just needs a field goal for the tie. Instead, Bron Bron takes another dump. True, it's an all-star game. Still. In racing news, the unemployed get to enjoy a Monday green flag at Daytona. 12 p.m. EST on Fox. Let's get rolling!
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!
Yeah, she isn't as jacked as Anna Watson the muscular Georgia cheerleader but she is packing a pretty good punch. Look at those biceps. The Kansas Jayhawk mascot looked just as creepy as he does in every game but looked especially creepy as they took on the Mizzou Tigers. A sign in the crowd referenced "John Brown's Final Battle". All of this and more after the JUMP!
Every week on College Gameday, the crew refers to how much swag Jay Bilas has or how trill he is. The crowd seems to love Jay Bilas and keeps making signs for him like this one saying "Trill Recognize Trill". A Jeremy Lin spinoff sign was spotted in the crowd with Lin crossed out and Lamb added who is a UCONN player. Digger Phelps looked like he was having a stroke on live television. JUMP!
And you thought Bobby Knight was retired from coaching. Oh, wait. He is. That was his son Pat, the coach of Lamar, ripping off a legendary post-game rant that would make his father proud. After Lamar dropped a game to Stephen F. Austin the other night, the younger Knight ripped into his seniors, saying, among other things, they were stealing money by being on scholarship. College basketball is more fun with a Knight in it, that's for sure. Check it!
New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin isn't sleeping on his brother couch anymore. Hooray! No, Lin is movin' on up, as it were, although not to the east side. Lin is subletting a condo in White Plains from former Knick David Lee, who was banished to Golden State in 2010. Lee's loss, Lin's gain we suppose. Here's a look inside Jeremy Lin's new babe layer, where we'll be sure to observe the rule -- if this baby's rockin', don't come knockin'. Check it!
In case you didn't hear the news yesterday, we went out and hired Asher from College Cheerleader Heaven to be our new Spirit Editor. HIs job is simple: Keep you guys updated on the hot chicks in cheerleading. Knowing that this weekend will be the final Mizzou-Kansas conference basketball game, Asher thought he'd break down this war with one final Big 12 basketball cheerleader showdown.
New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin already has a legion of fans, but probably none of them are as dumb as this dude. That's right. We've found the first idiot to get a Lin tattoo. It was only a matter of time, right? The best thing we can say about the ink is at least dude didn't get Lin's face tattooed on his body somewhere. Thankfully, it's just the guy's number. Still, we doubt this will help him with the ladies. You be the judge. Check it!
Hell yes we're proud to announce that BC has hired the college cheerleader legend, Asher, from everyone's favorite underground site - College Cheerleader Heaven. This might not be a major announcement to the likes of SB Nation or Bleacher Report because they're busy throwing investor money at high-profile bloggers. Meanwhile, BC will just be here giving you guys what you want instead of 1500 word posts you'll never read. Up first: the Miami Redhawks Dance Team! JUMP!
Don't worry, ESPN intern guy, hardly any East Coast asshole screencappers were still awake for this one. Should fly under the radar most of the day. (via @NickName54) You know what hurts for the Dallas Mavericks? You hold Kobe to 4-of-15 from the field and get 7 turnovers from him and still lose, 96-91. In NFL news, it's meat market day in Indy. You'll be able to start watching the events on your computer starting Sat. with these cameras. Let's get rolling!
You know what's respectable with this Jim Harbaugh guy? He's not against working his ass off during the off-season by picking up some cash as a student manager at Indiana men's basketball games. Wait, what was Harbaugh doing carrying chairs during timeouts at tonight's blowout of North Carolina Central? No biggie, Tom Crean is his brother-in-law and Jim is in town for tomorrow's combine. JUMP!
Kudos to the Binghamton Bearcats for finally getting a win this basketball season. Now 1-26 after beating Vermont, 57-53, Binghamton should expect its 344th RPI ranking to adjust accordingly. Since it's a slow Wednesday morning, you should enjoy Bam Margera being arrested at Mardi Gras. The reason? Something about swimming in a pool with his clothes on. As for tomorrow night's Heat-Knicks game in Miami, $135 gets you a seat. Let's get rolling!
It was nearly a storybook finish... until stupidity took over. Down by three with four seconds left, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Martell Webster steals the inbounds pass, races down court and... goes directly in for an awesome dunk! Timberwolves lose. We've got the video, which showcases not only the stupidity of the play, but also the reactions that followed. Let's just say, we weren't the only ones dumbfounded. Check it!
We continue to say it. There isn't a strip club in America that 'gets it' like the minds behind Rick's Cabaret in Manhattan. You know how many strip clubs send us press releases about their dancers and pop culture topics? 1. Rick's. That's because Lonnie Hanover continues to understand men, their sports interests and their interest in strippers. Take a Jeremy Lin jersey, put it on an Asian stripper & you have buzz. Brilliant. JUMP!
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio has game, but that doesn't mean he gets a pass from rookie hazing. No, the Spaniard gets the same treatment as all first-year players. Thanks to veteran center Brad Miller, Rubio will be sporting a Justin Bieber backpack off the court for the remainder of the season. It's a sweet little number too... if you're a 10-year-old girl. We fully endorse Miller's choice. Check it!
Her name is Lindsey and she's a Michigan grad just trying to do her part to piss off Ohio State fans. There she was Saturday morning at Crisler Arena holding her Casey Anthony vs. Kate Upton sign. We spotted her at about 10:15 and had her photographed within minutes. One thing led to another and Lindsey was emailing us this afternoon about her sign ordeal with a Crisler Arena usher. Seems someone didn't like the Casey Anthony reference. JUMP!
Wasn't really planning on spending my Saturday morning in Ann Arbor for ESPN Gameday, but figured you guys would enjoy a look at the hot Michigan chicks. Didn't exactly find any. And the cheerleaders look very Ivy League-like. But these two chicks stole our hearts with two signs that just hammered the pop culture references of the week. In typical Michigan dork fashion, these two were being ignored by the bros in the crowd. JUMP!
Via: An assistant coach for the Creighton University women's basketball team was arrested early Sunday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Carrie Moore, 26, of Bellevue, was arrested after employees at a McDonald's restaurant found her passed out in her car at the drive-through, Bellevue police Officer Sean Vest said. Moore told police that she had been at the Creighton men's game late Saturday and had a few drinks afterward. Punishment: 35 suicides.
How to win: Follow @BustedCoverage & tweet this phrase: I want @BustedCoverage's #JeremyLin #Knicks jersey! #RT2WIN. The more you tweet the phrase the more likely you’ll be to win. We’ll pick someone at random next Thursday, so make sure to get all RTs in before 11:59pm ET on Wednesday, 2/22. It'll be a large jersey so you've been warned. These things retail for like $60 - if you can find one - so get your ass in gear. Start tweeting.
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!
Nice bow tie Anthony Grant. You kind of look like a waiter at my local seafood place. The baby in the background really adds to the picture too. I also think Grant's yelling is pretty half assed. C'mon Grant, if you are going to yell, yell. We were tipped off that the Alabama photobomb guy would be out in full force with his minions. Check it out after the JUMP!
A sign in the crowd was spotted that said 'Jeremy Lin Hates The Buckeyes. Go Blue!' on College Gameday today proving that Linsanity is literally everywhere. Hey, if Jeremy Lin is behind the Wolverines, I would worry if I were a Buckeye. There also was a Michigan guy wearing a bikini helmet with a hula skirt in the crowd. There also was a guy that said 'I heart U Denard'. Aren't we supposed to be getting ready for a basketball game? JUMP!
If you ever wondered if Digger Phelps was getting old and out of energy. This should answer it. He hasn't. Jay Koot is on the scene in Ann Arbor and got to witness the Digger dance in person.The crowd and cheerleaders loved it when Digger shook it to "Just A Little Bit" fist pumping from side to side. We'll have more on College Gameday up shortly until then check out the video after the JUMP!
Don't blame Jeremy Lin's 9 turnovers for last night's embarrassing Knicks 89-85 loss to the New Orleans Hornets. Look right at the 3-point FG percentages. NY was 4-of-24, while N.O. went 7-of-12. End of story. It was the Hornets 7th win of the season. Yes, a bunch of gamblers got their nuts kicked in. In other basketball news, we're leaving in an hour to visit the set of ESPN GameDay in Ann Arbor. Gotta keep an eye on this Digger Phelps character. Let's get rolling!
Oh, hey, there's Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox yesterday just doing their thing in Cabo because what else are you going to do with Fox's money in the winter? Sit around in L.A.? Pfft. Gotta admit it has been many years since we've seen the Rickster with his shirt off on a beach. What's the 2012 Rickster rocking? Man cans. Dushku is still in perfect shape, possibly even looking like she needs to slam a Five Guys. JUMP!
You might remember our friends at Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale, AZ Tebowing after a regular-season victory. Yeah, well it's playoffs time in Arizona. Connor Upchurch (@gonetochurch) filed a report with us last night. "Check out More of Scottsdale DMHS
#tebowing in round 1 AIA playoffs vs. Anthem Bouldercreek," Connor tweeted. DM is 20-9. Get on the bandwagon - NOW! Um, DM's next game is against 28-1 Corona del Sol. We need a miracle, boys!
Contrary to popular belief, that old coot Dr. Ruth is still as dirty as ever with her sex talk and has even evolved with the times which means talking about the "back door" on Twitter. Guess what else she's talking about? Jeremy Lin! Of course she is because who isn't talking Jeremy Lin at this point. And here we figured this broad was either dead or too busy getting laid to tweet about hoping Jeremy has enough condoms. JUMP!
Would this qualify as "Linnsanity?" New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin has become a media darling and his face is all over the place, but one Florida State sorority girl apparently doesn't have a TV or know how to use the Internet. While we presume she wanted to ask Lin to her formal, she instead asks "Jerry Linn," who she thinks plays for the New York Giants and is black. She loves black guys. We're sure daddy loves that. Here's the video.
Sacramento Kings Seattle SuperSonics new general manager. Mike Tyson was at MSG last night for the Jeremy Lin experience, but the former world champ didn't get to see a scoring outburst from Linsanity. He'd have to settle for 10 pts & 13 dimes in a 100-85 Knicks win. The victory - 7th in a row - gets NY back to .500. Don't think Vegas isn't taking notice. The Knicks are now 30/1 to win the NBA Finals. Let's get rolling!
Yep, we've been keeping one eye on this Kentucky live basketball practice that's airing on ESPNU this afternoon. John Calipari is running a practice with about 2,500 fans hanging out to see what it's like inside the program. What have we learned in this practice? Not much other than this is one helluva recruiting tool. When you have students sweating practice, a recruit knows this is life or death. (watch live on ESPNU)
