Why do we want the Atlanta Hawks to prolong their home season as long as possible, even though they're down 3-1 against the Celtics in the NBA playoffs? Simple answer: Crystal Hopkins. She's one of the team's dancers & BC Cheerleader Stalker Asher put the pieces together on this 23-year-old who also has dreams of being a country singer. Did we mention the great rack and her dancing ability? God, please let the Celtics fold and the Hawks advance. JUMP!
After the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Dallas Mavericks, Russell Westbrook was asked some questions by reporter Johnathon Tjarks. Tjarks, who works for RealGM.com, asked Westbrook if he would consider James Harden a maximum contract player. Westbrook dodged the question and responded to Tjarks with a "No more questions for you bro". Video after the JUMP!
Chris Paul brought his son to the post game press conference after the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Memphis Grizzlies. Chris was discussing a specific part of the game and asked his son to imitate Blake Griffin's game face. The kid did a spot on imitation of it and the crowd loved it. Thanks kid for creating a meme for us. The LA Clippers lead the series 2-1 against the Memphis Grizzlies. JUMP!
Is this some sort of fake Lakers fan that the Nuggets placed behind the basket for last night's game? That's the only excuse for some dirtbag picking her nose while Kobe is trying to sink a free throw while the Lakers are getting drilled. As for the game, the Nugs got a victory, making the series 2-1 L.A. Just another warning this morning, Erin Andrews says her Derby hat this year will be simple. Lots of flowers. Sad to hear there will be no more giant saucers. Let's get rolling!
We have boots on the ground in Denver this weekend for the Nuggets-Lakers series and they tell us Kobe Bryant might have pulled a Kobe move last night at the Tilted Kilt. Our ESPN TV sources tell us that the divorced Bryant had a particular problem with the waitresses at the notoriously busty brew pub. What was Kobe's issue with the waitresses? JUMP!
Everyone was going nuts last night about Marc Gasol getting two in the stink during the Grizzlies-Clippers game. Of course the emails rolled in this morning. "Why are you guys late on the Gasol video?" Sorry, woke up a little foggy this morning after a Wednesday night bender in NYC. That meant lots of whiskey and like 5 hours of sleep. Anyway, Gasol got fingered and the Internet went nuts. Ho-hum. JUMP!
Keep your eyes on the Chris Kaman Twitter account the next couple of days. Ted Nugent's love child packed up his ass kickin' trucks today and is heading back to Michigan where he'll spend the next few months blowing up sh*t and digging piles of dirt. Not kidding, the exploits of Kaman in Michigan are well documented. You should see these rides he's taking back. Suck it, gas mileage. You're dead to Kaman. JUMP!
Poor Derrick Rose. It's bad enough to have a blown out ACL, meaning you'll miss the Eastern Conference Finals against Bron Bron. But then the Bulls go and throw you into an empty suite. As of this writing the Bulls have a 53-45 lead. I'm on a 6 a.m. flight right now so you can go watch SportsCenter to get the final score. In fishing news, do you need some extra cash & live in Washington/Oregon? Go fishing & get paid. Let's get rolling!
Gonna make this one short because it's Monday, it's getting late and my ass spent most of the weekend entertaining you guys because Screencapper Matt decided to work for like 2 hours each day. Anyway, here are the 3 Biggest Douchebags At Game Two Of The Knicks-Heat Series. You'd get more than three but, again, I'm tired and not really in the mood to expand this to four or five douchebags. Cool? JUMP!
Now, before you start screaming that this is just some stupid wild rumor and no human would put $1.8 million on a first-round NBA game, realize that Floyd Mayweather's track record speaks for itself. For example, Money has bet $150,000 on the Little Caesars Bowl. But what's odd about this tweet last night from Twitter sports badboy Incarcerated Bob is that Floyd isn't known to brag about his bets until they're winners. Think he was sweating down 21? JUMP!
Know why we love our readers? Guys like Jason B. are sitting on their asses on a Sunday afternoon watching the Utah vs. San Antonio game and sending us screencaps of bullshit like this from ESPN. How does shit like this happen? It's the weekend, people are hungover and some smartass intern figures nobody is watching this game so he'll slip in a Phoenix victory. Guess who's not in the playoffs? Phoenix. Now, don't mind us, we're heading off to watch our 60 Minutes DVR.
This is why you never leave your star players on the court when the game is in hand. Derrick Rose went down with an injury to what looked like his knee after falling awkwardly on it. The Chicago Bulls took on the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs where the Bulls pulled out the win. We'll see if Derrick Rose is able to return for Game 2 or if this will effect this series or series to come. HT Deadspin JUMP!
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!
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!
