The NBA Playoffs get started Saturday with the 76ers traveling to Chicago for a 1:30 tip against the Bulls, followed by the Knicks playing in Miami against the odds-on-favorite to win the 2012 NBA Championship. Pregame.com has Lebron and the Heat as 2/1 favorites and Chicago as 4/1 to win it all. This also marks a cheerleading milestone for certain units. How about the Los Angeles Clippers dance team finally working into May, a first since '05-06. JUMP!
Drunken Michigan Athletic Director In 120 MPH Police Chase After Women’s NCAA Tourney Championship! [Cuff 'Em]
Newspaper reporters keep driving us nuts. They're always burying the lede. Take this story about a local Michigan athletic director leading cops on a drunken 120 m.p.h. police chase. Blah, blah, blah...AND THEN THEY TELL US HOMEBOY WAS DRUNK AFTER BOOZING & WATCHING THE WOMEN'S NCAA TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP! Biggest embarrassment ever? JUMP!
The last time Busted Coverage's star interviewer Joseph Student sat down with a Playboy Playmate he caused drama in Denver via Leola Bell's comments about loving Tebow. The magazine enjoyed our interview so much that BC got a mention in the April issue. Anyway, Student sat down today with Miss May Nikki Leigh & jumped straight into his classic line of questioning. Let's just say that Ms. Leigh begged us to help her meet Blake Griffin. JUMP!
Here's what is hard to figure out with hot chicks. Why don't they call each other out for jumping on NBA bandwagons? Guys would give each other sh*t for years if one of your buddies rooted for the Nets and suddenly became a Mavs fan during the NBA Finals. But hot chicks don't operate in this fashion. It's as if they don't care about loyalty. And it's just understood. Chick code. For example, we now learn that Arianny Celeste has climbed on the Lebron bandwagon. 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!
Our old friend Molly Sullivan has finally landed a big time East Coast job where sideline reporters become noticed instead of languishing in Las Vegas. We happened to be in the same Playboy fantasy football league with Molly last season with plenty of other C-listers. Little did we know that Meridith Marakovits would get called up to the YES Network & the 76ers would have a sideline opening. One thing leads to another and Molly gets the CSN job. Philly is on notice. JUMP!
What the f*ck is going on with the sports world? Are we running out of filler for the 24-hour news cycle? Dropping espionage and _____-gate makes us feel like a Walter Cronkite hologram will show up after a commercial & kick Neil Everett's ass. Jesus! Can't we get a fake Steve Phillips press conference about Albert Pujols being homerless? In NHL news, the Rangers force a Game 7 while Gary Bettman battles the shits over the Blackhawks being eliminated. Let's get rolling!
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!
And the 99 Problems jerseys just keep rolling in. We asked for submissions a few weeks ago and look what was in the inbox this morning. Indy backwards hat 99 Problems d-bag. Fact: you should never rock this look in an Indianapolis sports bar unless you have a "Ain't 1" bitch rolling with you through Dave & Busters, or wherever Indy watches games. Just sayin'. In MLB news, you MUST look at the NY Post front page. MUST, DAMMIT! Let's get rolling!
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!
So we kinda got into it last night with Auburn nation over the Charles Barkley with greasy redneck Auburn bros during rodeo weekend photo. We thought Auburn fans/students were honored to be called greasy rednecks. Maybe coming from a Yankee it was an insult. Just reporting what we see. And the guys with Barkley look like their clothes could use a wash. Anyway, Chuck also took time out of his night for picture time with this lass. JUMP!
This past weekend just happened to be Auburn rodeo weekend, the annual frat party put on by the Alpha Psi brothers. The event is known for (A.) Booze, (B.) Dirty jorts, (C.) Daisy dukes, (D.) Rednecks. Just happened that Charles Barkley was in town and at some bar where some greasy Auburn bros stopped the Round Mound of Rebound for a photo op. Typical celebrities would brush off the dirtbags and tell them to get a shower. Not Barkley. 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!
And you guys thought we only picked on ESPN interns. Look, you screw up a sports graphic that's running on live TV and BC is coming after you, especially when it's as easy as spelling C-E-L-T-I-C-S. Here we have Sager doing his thing with Doc Rivers during tonight's Cel-tics-Knicks game. Kinda disappointed in Sager's coat choice. Too reserved. Knicks led 43-28 at last glance. Hope the TNT intern enjoys his/her last night on the job. (HT: @jose3030)
Yeah, we're fully aware that the other Internet outlets that cover athlete pads had this one last week. However, not a single site (Business Insider, Chicago Tribune, Curbed, etc.) called out Kyle Korver for what has to be the worst game room in athlete house history. Korver is about to sell this 16-room, suburban Chicago mansion for $1.475 million. He paid $1.38. Yep, housing is coming back! Blah, blah, blah. Now, let's rip on Korver's game room. JUMP!
