Big news coming out of Philadelphia early this morning. No, it wasn't the Eagles third lucky win of the season...it was this heroin bust by the Upper Darby police. An undercover cop made a sizable purchase of 140 bags of heroin last Thursday. Standard on the mean streets of Philly, but something was different about these baggies: they were labled "LeBron James". Yep, The King himself is now officially an endorser of Philadelphia's finest heroin! JUMP!
Its been three long years since Marko Jaric has been on an NBA roster, but the wait is finally over...for now. ESPN has announced that the Bulls signed Jaric to their training camp roster, giving the 33-year-old another shot at the NBA. Why would we care about a random scrub like Jaric? Don't let those three years Jaric spent in Europe fudge your memory...he's the lucky S.O.B. who's married to Adriana Lima! JUMP!
In the market for a giant Phoenix home where you can hide from your kids and watch NFL games in your 18-seat theater? Of course you are. Are you and eight buddies looking to go in on where you can throw raging fratty parties and shoot NSFW bikini videos? Jason Kidd has a house you need to buy. It's only 13,500 sq. ft. and has six bedrooms. However, you'll get like four houses within one house. That's right, multiple living arrangements. JUMP!
Michael Jordan this week happened to be at Scottie Pippen's birthday party and, as expected, His Airness was in yet another ridiculous suit jacket. Look at that thing. Not only is it the size of a queen sheet, it's complimented with ripped jeans, a Jordan staple. We're not breaking new ground with this post. It's just time to remind 6'6" men to chill out with the jackets and parachute pants. It's time to put this rich man on notice. JUMP!
Scottie Pippen turned 47 on Tuesday. Yes, it's weird that he's almost 50 but the biggest thing we took from his birthday is just how hot his wife is. The lucky lady is Larsa Pippen, who has been married to Scottie since 1997. The happy couple went out partying for Scottie's birthday, and lowanbehold Michael Jordan showed up...looking like a scrub! JUMP!
Having spent seven out of 11 of his pro career playing in Charlotte, one would assume Gerald Wallace would've splurged and bought himself an insane house. The guy has amassed nearly $63,000,000 in career earnings and is slated to make another $40,000,000 over the next four years in Brooklyn. That's some serious cash to only be living in a $1.6 million house. Looks like Wallace is unloading this dump for some nicer digs up in New York. JUMP!
Before we get to the purpose of this post, lets all take a minute and realize just how terrifying of a man Reggie Evans is. Ok...moving on. Veterans of the newly minted Brooklyn Nets are already up to some mischief. Deron Williams and Evans pulled a prank on "rookie" MarShon Brooks by filling his Acura with popcorn. We put rookie in quotes because Brooks had already finished his first season. He was actually a trooper and responded well to the prank. JUMP!
This has to be James Harden right? Judging by the circumstances it's extremely unlikely that this is in fact Harden at a Towson football game, but this bro is a spot on doppelganger for the bearded assassin. If this is in fact Harden, BC might have just cost Harden some fans in a year where he is heading into free agency. Rocking both a spurs hat and a Tim Duncan jersey, can't imagine Thunder fans would be excited to see their star in enemy gear! JUMP!
By now we all know that last night was an absolute fiasco. Former Seattle Sonics guard Gary Payton took to Twitter after the game congratulating the Seahawks on the "incredible" win. Naturally some Packers fans were very salty and one felt the need to reply directly to The Glove. User @Shaun_King33 got all NSFW on Payton really quickly, and growing up in Oakland, Payton stopped taking sh*t from people at a very young age. Read the full Twitter exchange here. JUMP!
Want to live like former NBAer James Posey? The guy won two NBA titles, made over $57,000,000 in salary over his career and now you can live in his Miami apartment/house. Are you in the market for a villa with Biscayne Bay views, granite counters and a great neighborhood to call home? Posey has this place on the market for only $2,195,000 and it's in a gated community. He paid $2,170,000 for it in 2005. JUMP!
No, this isn't a re-post from last week. Greg Oden went back to Little Bar in Columbus and, as one tweeter so eloquently put it, got "frat boy wasted." With each passing week Oden seems to spiraling towards a dark, sad life of alcoholism and irrelevance. As he did last weekend, he went on another all-day bender on Saturday. Oden was first seen partying at a tailgate before the Buckeyes took on UAB. After the win, he hit up Little Bar where the shenanigans didn't stop. He left a $1 tip! JUMP!
Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger is a real man of the people. You want to know what its like to live like an NBA player for a month? All you gotta do is round up a few of your buddies and pony up $25,000 and you can rent out Granger's L.A. house for a month. Why Granger has sunk millions into a house that is over 2,000 miles from where he plays basketball is beyond us, but hey, it has a sweet pool! With mountain views! JUMP!
Greg Oden's alcoholic rehab doesn't seem to be going very well. The 7-footer apparently went on a bender this weekend on the Ohio State campus during a football Saturday. This middle finger photo happened at around 7:48 on Saturday night at the infamous Little Bar. Eventually the former 1st overall NBA pick would end up playing beer pong at some house party. The guy might look 47, but he's really 24 and living the dream. JUMP!
Every now and then we receive a Greg Oden update. Not long ago we saw his academic side when he went back to Ohio State for an economics summer class. Now it appears he is enjoying the other side of the college experience: getting drunk with kids and chasing after "white hoes". Last weekend he was out partying and apparently spending time with some students from nearby Columbus State Community College. JUMP!
After 26 years as the head coach of the University of Connecticut, Jim Calhoun has decided to call it a career. Guess who can't wait for reporters and Huskies fans praising his every move. The guy was a complete scumbag for the majority of his career and pretty much ignored the NCAA, recruiting as he pleased. Is he leaving before bigger sanctions are dropped on UConn? Maybe. Either way, Twitter ripped the guy apart. JUMP!
The photo of James Harden, in his United States of America Nike shirt, making a thick stripper work for his stack of cash has been on the Internet for a couple weeks. Now comes the video. How does the OKC Thunder star blow off steam during the summer? Oh, by waving a wad of bills in this thickie's face. If she wants the cash, it's going to take effort. Do your thing, girlfriend. We're guessing Nike is enjoying this product placement. JUMP!
Even when JaVale McGee is trying to do something nice, he can't seem to get it right. Yesterday on Twitter, McGee offered a free Chipotle lunch to his first ten fans who showed up. You'd assume tons of fans would take him up on this. Hell, at least more than ten, right? Wrong. One person showed up and claimed their free burrito. McGee has over 66,000 followers yet only one felt the desire to meet him and claim a free lunch?! Bummer. JUMP!
Yao Ming played all eight of his NBA seasons in Houston after they drafted him #1 overall in 2002. Knowing Houston was going to be his non-Chinese home for a while he decided to drop some cash on this place. Complete with some of the highest ceilings we've seen and a pink jacuzzi, it doesn't look like Yao spared any expenses. Seriously though, we can't get past this pink Jacuzzi! JUMP!
In the market for a life-size portrait of Shaq? How about one of Shaq in a Superman suit? If so, we've got you covered. A Newport Beach area Craigslist user posted these masterpieces yesterday and somehow they haven't sold yet. For only $3,995 each, these paintings could find their way into your basement, office or living room. Supposedly they're valued at $100,000 each so $3,995 is practically getting them for free! JUMP!
