Nope, never thought we'd be setting Miami Heat championship bar tab gambling lines, but that's exactly what happened last night on Twitter. A simple tweet suggesting the Heat would ring up at least a $147,000 bar tab at Club LIV turned into an actual bet thanks to our friends at SportsInteraction.com. Still not following @bustedcoverage? You guys are missing all the fun. JUMP!
The Miami Heat won. LeBron James got his first ring. Blah, blah, blah. What was first on our minds as the final buzzer went off last night was whether or not the ladies of #TeamBJNBA were going to stay true to their word. After a little bit of partying Angelina Castro and Sarah Jay quickly put any worry to rest, letting us know that the BJ train is going to run according to schedule. Details need to be ironed out, but don't worry fellas, there will be BJs...lots of BJs. JUMP!
Let's be honest here, LeBron James celebrating his first NBA title at Club LIV this morning with LMFAO is about as bad as it gets in the celebration category. There were no Ace of Spades bottles that we know of. No massive speeches from the King. No giant bar bills (more on that later this morning). Just LeBron rapping with the douchiest club group of the 21st century. JUMP!
Here is your Miami Herald front page this morning with its 'Reign Begins' headline. This might be the worst hometown A1 championship celebration design we've seen in multiple years. You're only going four columns wide on LeBron's first ring? Weak. In other Heat news, LMFAO just happened to be in Miami for the celebration party at LIV. Yes, LeBron rapped with LMFAO. Yes, that will be a major story today. Yes, we'll pile on. Let's get rolling!
In case you were watching the College World Series and didn't realize the Heat & Thunder played Game 5 tonight, word on the streets in Miami is that Bron Bron got his first ring via a blowout. Maybe you missed this tweet from Terrelle Pryor. It's one that'll warm the heart of anyone who has sports rooting interests in the Buckeye State. Sweet dreams, Ohio. See you in the morning.
BC broke the news earlier today that Indianapolis cheerleader coach Megan Crafton was involved in some serious sh*t. By serious sh*t we mean a 17 year old boys private parts. She admitted to giving the student a BJ in a parking lot and is now facing legal action. Knowing the repercussion the online community was about to send her way, Crafton acted swiftly and deleted her Twitter. Turns out she wasn't quick enough! BC has secured some scandalous twitpics, JUMP!
In the market for a multi-million dollar house that is currently owned by a professional athlete and the house must have a cool pool? Sure you aren't, but it's not a crime to look. Maybe you work at Facebook and need a house near San Francisco? Barry Zito is trying to sell a mountainside retreat with what has to be the best pool view in athlete houses currently on the market: $11.45M. Looking for a grotto? You can buy Devin Harris' house: $2.1M. More - JUMP!
Yep, we have another chick in power taking advantage of high school boys. Indiana police say cheerleading coach Megan Crafton has admitted to performing oral on a 17-year-old basketball player during a January grocery store parking lot tryst. Yes, she admits to it. Does that lead have your attention? JUMP!
For those not in the know, Micky Arison owns the Miami Heat. He thought it would be funny last night to tweet out this shot of Dan Le Batard's huge (we assume) hairy ass during his hotel bodypaint session. Last shot of Dan's ass, we promise. In NBA news, the Heat are -3.5 tonight. Suggestion here is to jump all over that number. LeBron gets his first ring after the Thunder collapse late in the 4th. Heat win by seven and go straight to Club Liv. Let's get rolling!
We'll keep this one short because there's never a good reason for Dan Le Batard to be in a Speedo. So Le Batard and Charles Barkley had a bet during last year's NBA Finals. Barkley took Dallas. Le Batard took his home team. Loser would wear a Speedo. So here we are looking at Le Batard paying off his bet this afternoon during his ESPN 790 show. Someone has been drinking lite beer. Barely a fat roll over the suit. Impressive. JUMP!
If you haven't seen Dwyane Wade's glasses from last night's presser, well you're looking at 'em. Sad thing is, we used to really like Wade. However, his douche level is off the charts. These new glasses are entering into territory we haven't seen before with Wade. Flip downs? Are you serious? JUMP
Our friends at Deadspin brought to light this afternoon that Indiana Pacers goon Tyler Hansbrough had a solid weekend in Wrightsville Beach, N.C. The big news here is that Psycho T doesn't mind to brown bag his 40 oz-ers when hanging with fellow whities. A little more digging into Hansbrough's summer reveals that this guy has been slightly enjoying his free time. The Internet is slowly taking notice. JUMP!
With Miami winning last night, the 300,000+ Twitter followers of Sarah Jay and Angelina Castro are now one Heat victory away from a BJ. That's right gentlemen, one more win will equal hundreds of thousands of BJs. If you are remotely attracted to either of these two broads you better follow them on Twitter ASAP. We noticed Angelina was a bit active last night during the game, posting a photo of her supply shopping for the inevitable BJ train. What was she buying? JUMP!
With every NBA Finals game there seems to be somebody who sticks out as the scapegoat. After watching game 4 and scanning Twitter, it became pretty clear James Harden is the latest. His 9 points on 2-10 shooting just isn't going to cut it if the Thunder have any chance of winning. Twitter, hateful as usual, let loose on the bearded baller. People are calling for him to pass, to shoot, to shave his beard and calling out issues with his love interest. Who is she, you ask? JUMP!
Have a plan to catch this morning so you guys aren't getting an update on last night's Game 4. I'll leave that to BC Assistant Editor, Rob, who'll be covering for me until this afternoon. What we have here is Chuck Barkley working on his Weight Watchers liquid diet where he can drink and still lose pounds. No word on which chick let the Mound do body shots. One of you at this Miami bar has video. Send it in. (via @BuzzFeedSports) Let's get rolling!
If you have been paying attention to LeBron's career, you have noticed the progression of his headband. It started out normal, but this year (and the NBA Finals) in particular it has grown to become more of a towel wrap than a headband. The thing just grows, and grows and grows. As we expected the Twitter world has taken notice and fans across the globe have posted pics of themselves modeling their own rendition of LeBron's massive headgear. JUMP!
When it comes to the NBA Finals, it seems there's always a story that is greater than the game itself. Had enough of the fabricated LeBron drama? More interested in a OKC/MIami porn star war? Of course you are. A Miami hoochie decided to up the ante last night during Game 2 by calling OKC fans ugly. Will this lead to a Twitter strip-off during Game 3? Will OKC superfans Bibi Jones & Jesse Jane be sucked into these childish games from Heat Nation? One can only hope. JUMP!
What's your hero Mark Cuban up to this week? Oh, not much, just jumping on his 288-foot superyacht 'Fountainhead' that just happens to be hanging out in the harbor of a tiny Greek village island in the Aegean Sea. Hate the guy all you want. The guy goes from his Mavs getting their asses handed to them, to admitting he lost his ass on Facebook and then to his superyacht. Get a good look, because this is the life you'll never lead, losers. JUMP!
Arguably the sexiest dance crew in the NBA, the Knicks City Dancers, are wrapping up their tryouts for the upcoming 2012-13 season. The KCD have developed quite the reputation in the past few years and these new photos are just further evidence of their...talents. The final announcements won't be made until August but, trust me, these pics are more than enough to hold you over until then. JUMP!
