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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Pasty white guys, already jealous of LeBron James for his superior talents, absolutely lost their minds on Twitter last night when SportsCenter made this dunk its #1 Top 10 play of the day. Is it a blatant travel? Looks borderline to us. We say play on. White guys on Twitter, however, are sick and tired of SportsCenter gobbling on LeBron's nuts. Look, whities, you need to realize what pays the bills to fly Rachel Nichols around the country. LeBron does. Suck it. JUMP!
You have three months off this summer and $105,000 to kick around on a Malibu waterfront beach house? Pat Riley has a place for you to crash and the only view off the deck is for miles and miles of the Pacific Ocean. That's right, rent Pat's poon slayer lair for only $35,000 per month (June, July & August). What do you get? It's the perfect place to invite Vanessa Hudgens or one of these other horny Hollywood types over to watch waves crash. JUMP!
It's the news ESPN needed to drum up content for the 97 hours of daily live shows across the WWL. Chris Broussard goes on the NBA pregame show last night and drops a nugget about Orlando possibly interviewing Shaq for its open GM position. Of course it's a stupid idea, but just the kind of rumor that gets fans fired up. That means it's good for our business, so we like this stupid rumor. The reaction from the black dudes wasn't good for The Big Aristotle. JUMP!
Of course we want the Heat to absolutely bury the Pacers tonight. Make a statement. It's not that we're LeBron fans. Of course his act sailed years ago. However, it's a team like Miami that's great for business. You guys hating Miami equals pageviews. Pageviews equal $. Dollars equal my ass going on vacation like twice a year. Enter Miami Heat MILF dancing on a bar after Game 5 at the Will Call sports bar. JUMP!
The other big news, besides the 76ers getting a victory in Game 6, was that Allen Iverson was in the house to provide moral support to his former team. Of course Philly columnists noted that the guy "looked like a shell of his former self." Seriously, you think? The guy hasn't played in an NBA game since 2010. Think he's a shell? Amazing! In MLB news, would the Steinbrenner boys really sell the Yankees? That's the report. Let's get rolling!
Just when you thought Oklahoma City Thunder games would never include one OKC fan yelling "Keep moving, dickhead" to another OKC fan, these folks shock the hell out of us. Here we figured OKC Nation was on the same page. All In! One Goal! Just Win, OKC! Add your own stupid playoff cliché as you see fit. However, the other night two dudes went at it in the upper deck. These people are growing on us. JUMP!
@1raymo for keeping his eyes open last night during a normal Steve Kerr-Marv Albert sideline shot. And then, out of nowhere, came this surprise breast implant. Just look at Kerr acting like a professional. Gotta figure Marv took her back to his hotel and taught her a few lessons. In NBA news, the Pacers-Heat series is OVER. Sure, there is a Game 6, but a 32-point loss in Game 5? Nigga, please? In NHL news, the Kings are in the Stanley Cup Finals. Let's get rolling!
From last night via @PaigeGreco: "Hangin out with my homeboy Tony Romo last night... Yes I know I look gross." Blah, blah, blah. Let's focus on those seven letters across Romo's rec league jersey. Isn't a bigger kiss of death to an NBA franchise still in the playoffs like this guy wearing your name. We're talking one NFL playoff victory. Don't say we didn't warn Boston fans when something goes wrong in Game 6 & 7.
So the Media Take Outs of the world are having fun today with Joakim Noah, his girlfriend Amanda and some basketballer named Nic Wise. We'll try to keep this simple for you. Wise sent a text message to 'Amanda.' Long story short, Noah saw the message and decided it was time to protect his poon territory. Wise received the following message that's quickly becoming the "Meme Of The Week." JUMP!
Can't really afford to buy some crazy million dollar pad in L.A. but want to live like Vlade Divac in the Pacific Palisades? We have a deal for you and four buddies just waiting to happen. The former Lakers great is looking to rent out his contemporary stunner for $13,000 a month. 5 beds, 5 baths. Could be the craziest summer of your life with this place that's guaranteed to get you laid like a famous NBA player. JUMP!
Are we ever surprised at this job? Like 10 to 12 times per day. Take this morning on Twitter where we expected to find OKC Thunder porn star superfans Bibi Jones & Jesse Jane ripping off clothes and showing beef curtains after their team disposed of the hated Lakers and Metta World Peace. The ladies, instead, were actually taking Game 5 very serious. Serious tweets & not a beef curtain pic between the two. Of course BC was surprised. JUMP!
