There might be a couple of you old coots reading this who remember March 3, 1962. That was a Saturday morning when you old coots woke up and read that Wilt Chamberlain dropped 100 points on the Knicks the night before in Hershey, PA. In Miami it was HUGE news. In Saskatoon, not so much. Thanks to the Internet and newspaper archives we can go back and see how those paginators played Wilt's accomplishment. JUMP!
Via: Amber D. Ginn, 19, attended an East Central girls basketball game on January 17. During the game, she allegedly snuck into the locker room and stole $370 from the lockers of four players. Surveillance video in the hallway outside the locker room helped lead police to identify Ginn as a suspect. According to a court affidavit, Ginn admitted to the theft. She was arrested Tuesday. Just lucky there was $370 in lockers or inside intel? This one smells.
It kinda flew under the radar over the weekend that The Mailman is now making wordy deliveries on Twitter such as this gem about a witches tit in Nebraska. The choice of @TheDeliverer_32 is kinda odd since themailman_32 was available. So who's The Deliverer following? Of course the Huntsman Daughters and Karl Malone Jr. Follow The Deliverer & you'll figure out he likes to call his followers 'grasshoppers.' Why? No idea, but it's keeping us intrigued.
Gotta figure this mask will be auctioned off for charity once Black Mamba's nose heals. Kinda figuring a game-used NBA mask could fetch at least $5k. It's unique, has been on Kobe's face and was used in a 31 point, 8 assist, 7 rebound blowout of the Timberwolves. As for Jeremy Lin, he had a nosebleed last night which pushed him off the NY Post backpage for a white guy. Efforting the last time a white NBA player made backpage. Has to be years. Let's get rolling!
That is a full-page advertorial in today's Crimson White, the University of Alabama student newspaper. Easily the greatest filler ad in Alabama newspaper history & that's even counting daily newspapers. What's the occasion? Oh, the Auburn Tigers are in town for an 8 p.m. EST basketball tip. The Crimson Tide are 19-9, presumably a couple wins away from an NCAA bid & the Tigers are 14-14 & planning Spring Break trips. [Watch live on ESPN3]
BC Spirit Editor Asher sent word today that he was investigating a cheerleader he'd been hearing about at Arkansas State. Not that she'd done anything wrong. It was just that his sources were telling him that there were come wild chicks in the Sun Belt Conference. This is exactly why we hired Asher. He's not just reposting USC Song Girls pics. He's giving the mid-major cheerleaders a chance to shine on the Internet. JUMP!
Is there a Holy Grail of athlete real estate? Yes, there is and it's the mansion in Highland Park, IL that Michael Jordan is trying to sell. We go through these athlete real estate deals on a daily basis and this $29,000,000 pad speaks for itself. Even Pete Sampras's mansion can't compete. Ever wanted your own basketball arena? Ever wanted 27,000 sq. ft. of house? Are you a new Facebook millionaire? Jump on this one!
While the Lakers are bitching about one thing or another, the Los Angeles Clippers are having a good time and leading the Pacific Division. Yeah, we still don't believe it either, but maybe it's because they're a bunch of stupid kids who don't understand the significance of the Clippers leading anything. Take center DeAndre Jordan, who likes to take photos of his teammates sleeping. Creepy, but also funny. Here are some of the best. JUMP!
Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah just had a birthday. He went to St. Bart's to celebrate. Neither of these things are important, though. What is important is who he celebrated with. We don't know her name, but the ugliest dude in the NBA was actually spotted with a fairly hot lass. We can only attribute how this happened to the fact that he's rich. There's really no other explanation. Here's a look. Won't you please tell us more? JUMP!
Seems kinda odd that Scott Skiles, head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, would put this massive house on the market in late February. His team is 13-20, but he's under contract through the '12-13 season. Is he just tired of the 4,700 sq. ft. of spaciousness? Is he just downsizing to a 2,500 sq. ft. pad to cut down on window cleaning? Skiles doesn't seem to be a dumb guy. Dude won't need this place in about 8 months. JUMP!
Been wondering what former Georgetown legend Michael Sweetney is up to? He's actually alive & playing in the Puerto Rican league. That's his current photo (left) and Sweets in 2010 (right). As you can see, he's been cutting weight. He's listed at 288 pounds. Of course that's generous. This guy actually averaged 15 ppg & 25 minutes played per game in 2011. Does your NBA team need a big body down the stretch? Sweets is all ears. (via @JohnnyNBA)
What did we learn this weekend in sports? Did you watch that all-star game? LeBron still wants someone else to take the last shot. We had one guy saying he wasn't open to take the final shot. Dude, he's supposed to be the world's best basketball player. Just needs a field goal for the tie. Instead, Bron Bron takes another dump. True, it's an all-star game. Still. In racing news, the unemployed get to enjoy a Monday green flag at Daytona. 12 p.m. EST on Fox. Let's get rolling!
What's the best part of the NBA season? The dunk contest hands down. This year's contest definitely did not disappoint and we caught the best dunks on video for you. Diddy came out to help Chase Buddinger make a dunk in which Chase jumped over Diddy. Another guy came out and dunked over a motorcycle. Kevin Hart showed up again after getting kicked out of the game yesterday to be a prop. JUMP!
Spike Lee showed up in Orlando wearing his most hilarious Jeremy Lin shirt representing his New York Knicks fandom. The shirt is absolutely hilarious and there is no lack of celebrities in town this weekend. They brought in Jay-Z and Kanye West to do the intro song to clips of basketball that was fantastic. The skills competition and the dunk contest all after the JUMP!
Yeah, she isn't as jacked as Anna Watson the muscular Georgia cheerleader but she is packing a pretty good punch. Look at those biceps. The Kansas Jayhawk mascot looked just as creepy as he does in every game but looked especially creepy as they took on the Mizzou Tigers. A sign in the crowd referenced "John Brown's Final Battle". All of this and more after the JUMP!
Every week on College Gameday, the crew refers to how much swag Jay Bilas has or how trill he is. The crowd seems to love Jay Bilas and keeps making signs for him like this one saying "Trill Recognize Trill". A Jeremy Lin spinoff sign was spotted in the crowd with Lin crossed out and Lamb added who is a UCONN player. Digger Phelps looked like he was having a stroke on live television. JUMP!
