Dirk Nowitski of the Dallas Mavericks was invited on stage by the indie rock band The Avett Brothers. Dirk chose to play the tambourine to one of their songs called "Sally's Lover". We already knew that Nowitski likes to listen to David Hasselhoff before a game but we never knew he was a fan of indie rock. Nowitski was even kind enough to put on a t-shirt of the band and take some photos with it. JUMP!
The University of Connecticut is actually going to make this horrible t-shirt and actually sanctioned it. The UCONN Alumni aren't exactly happy about this t-shirt being sold at their alma mater's official website. If you purchase 50 dollars or more of these, you can get 50 percent off! What a deal. If I went to a rival school of the University of Connecticut, I would have some photoshop fun with this. Full t-shirt after the JUMP!
BC Cheerleader Expert Investigator Asher was ordered to start compiling intel on the San Antonio Spurs dancers because we figure they'll be in the NBA Finals by Wednesday or so. He came back with a little firecracker, Mandy, who is a big fan of the Kardashians, Tony Parker and I Love Lucy. Hell yes that's a well-rounded girl right there. She also has a decent collection of Twitpics for her 97 Twitter followers. How does a Spurs dancer only have 97 followers? Mind-boggling. JUMP!
The day he divorces his right hand. The day he marries the love of his life. The day he loses his virginity. It's finally here for Jimmer Fredette. The Kings shooting guard & BYU legend will marry his longtime girlfriend Whitney Wonnacott tonight at a Denver LDS temple. Yes, we bought the couple a nice present, a red spatula. The big question we have, is how long will this guy be able to perform on his wedding night? 3-4 minutes? 1:37? JUMP!
Is there a bigger dickhead move in Oklahoma like some rich bastard sitting courtside sucking on a stogie in an arena with a no smoking policy? Who do you think you are, Sam Farha? I learned years ago, if a chick wears hoop earrings she usually puts out on the first date for a guy sucking on a cigar at Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Oh, the Thunder won by 20. In NHL news, the Stanley Cup keeps getting disrespected. Let's get rolling!
Charles Barkley, in 2006, said that “Oklahoma is nothing but vast wasteland. No place for black people. The Oklahoma Sooners and the Hornets are the only brothers in town.” Of course the local media hasn't forgotten that quote so it's one storyline for Thursday's Game 3. The other being the 2-0 hole OKC finds itself in. Anyway, a Barkley sighting is a big deal in the city which made his jog this afternoon through downtown a big deal. JUMP!
Are you moving to Atlanta and need a place to hang your basketball memorabilia, drink beers, play pool, swim, chill with your homies and get a haircut all under one roof? NBAer Jason Terry has your forever house. According to Basketball Reference, this guy has made $87 million over his basketball career. Time to let the $1.9 million house go. Purchased for $1.76 million in 2003, Terry seems to be content pretty much breaking even on this shack. JUMP!
Marcus Jordan learned a valuable lesson today on Twitter when ordering whores – double check to make sure you are DMing said whore. This morning, Jordan hit send on a tweet to some whore who goes by @xxxrachelroxxx. The only problem was that he seemed to be telling Rachel that he had some serious cash for her. From the tweet it doesn't appear the two are related. JUMP!
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!
Oh, hell yes Spurs fans kicking the sh*t out of a Thunder fan is a great way for the Western Conference Finals become relevant in our eyes. That's exactly what happened last night during the 4th quarter. TNT cameras caught the action and so did some guy who was just trying to play some NBA 2K12. Fists flying. Multiple people stomping Thunder fan. A sucker punch. Classic playoffs ass kicking. JUMP!
By the way, when did they start serving those giant margarita yard cups at NBA games like they do in downtown Vegas? You let grandma slam a couple of those and she's gonna ride Tony Parker like a mechanical bull. In other NBA news, the Spurs take a 2-0 lead and have like 20 straight wins. Um, they shot 55% from the field. In MLB news, Reds 3B Todd Frazier saved a guy's life on Tuesday. Some dude nearly choked to death on a steak tip. Let's get rolling!
The big story last night in Game 1, besides LeBron kissing him mom on the lips during halftime, had to be Danny Crawford and his quick technical whistle. At one point around 9 p.m. EST, Crawford was the #1 trend on Twitter in the U.S. As you'd expect, the NSFW vitriol was spilling over. That's always good for business here at Busted Coverage. The more you guys hate someone on Twitter, the more pageviews we generate. Here's the best of the best. JUMP!
Say you were LeBron James, and of course you love your mother, would you still kiss her on the lips during halftime of the Eastern Conference Finals? With all those Delonte West rumors circling? Could you ever look at your mother the same way? And why the lips? Maybe a nice cheek kiss. How about a nice hug? Nope, King James goes straight to Otis Nixon's mouth. First question at the presser: "How's Delonte West taste?"
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!
Loyal BC reader Steve in Hoboken was up watching SportsCenter last night while the rest of New Jersey was fist pumping in Seaside. "Who's the blonde smoke," he asked. Let's see, full lips, perfect nose, insane jaw structure, great flow to the hair. She's not holding that Channel 5 mic so you can rule her out at that station. One of you bros knows that blonde. Make things happen this weekend & drop us an email with her name and modeling pics: email@example.com
