Michael Jordan is all over this North Carolina basketball thing today. The Tar Heels meet arch rival Duke tonight and the greatest player from either side threw out a little memorabilia via Twitter. Air Jordan posted pictures of a recruiting letter he was sent by Dean Smith and his letter of intent. These, of course, would help UNC win the 1982 National Championship. As for Duke, well, they can pretty much suck it. The letter - JUMP!
Butler Bulldogs guard Ronald Nored just suffered the most disgusting injury of the college basketball season. While diving for a loose ball in today's loss to Detroit, Nored's face bounced off the floor and he cracked... no, broke one of his front teeth. So while the loss and the Bulldogs' mediocre record might be painful, we suspect this injury hurt a little bit more than either of those things. We've got the gnarly photo. Check it!
Florida Gators fans have a question for you Vanderbilt Commodores: U Mad Bro? These signs were spotted court side of the game courtesy of @RowdyTownMayor. There were more cheerleader and dazzler pictures in this game than any other game I have covered. Also, can anyone tell me what this Florida fan was wearing or what the hell Kevin Stallings was doing. Check it after the JUMP!
A Mizzou student dressed up as a zookeeper for College Gameday in preparation for the Mizzou Tigers and Kansas Jayhawks game. This bitter rivalry yielded some funny signs in the crowd such as the meme "BEAT ALL OF THE JAYHAWKS". A girl begged Jay Bilas to follow her on Twitter via a sign and Rece Davis stood next to the most awkward looking tiger mascot possible. All of this and more after the JUMP!
Blake Griffin ain't shit. Okay, maybe we're going a little overboard. He's definitely got a rival for the monster dunk he threw down over Kendrick Perkins on Sunday and it comes from a college player. And it's a college player we've never heard of. Well, we've heard of him now and so should you. Arkansas-Pine Bluff guard Savalace Townsend had a rim-rattler this week that's every bit as good as Griffin's. It may be even better. Check it!
When the Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin posterized the Oklahoma City Thunder's Kendrick Perkins on Sunday everyone pretty much went ape shit. Well, Perkins' teammate Kevin Durant was not one of those people. The NBA's third-leading scorer says Griffin's dunk was nothing more than a layup. While we may not agree with that assessment, Durant does raise an interesting point about what a dunk is. Check it!
Who is Mark Turgeon? It's okay, we didn't know either. He's the basketball coach at Maryland. You know, the guy who took over for Gary Williams. Well, it turns out people were about excited as we are about Mark Turgeon and Maryland basketball this season. So, several Maryland students decided to dress up as the coach for games to show their support for the him and the team. They look like fools, but their hearts are in the right place. Check it!
Why Adam Morrison this morning? Because he's all two thumbs up, like, "Dude, life could be worse." In case you care, Spicoli is now launching triples in Turkey on a one-year deal. Anyone know how the drugs are in Turkey? Gotta figure they have top-notch bud or it's easy to score. Also, this morning: make sure you read Matt Youmans' (LVRJ) piece on the wacky Super Bowl prop bets available in Vegas. There are even four props on the Pats punter. Let's get rolling!
Charlotte Bobcats center DeSagana Diop has always been an embarrassment to basketball, but over the weekend he raised (or lowered) the bar by becoming an embarrassment to humanity. That's because Diop missed a free throw so badly we're pretty sure he doesn't deserve to set foot on a basketball court ever again. If you like train wrecks, you should love this. Here's the video of Diop's futile attempt at trying. Check it!
Portland Trailblazers PR guru @KrisKoivisto uploaded this shot on Saturday: A happy Greg Oden rocks the 3 Goggles at Player Palooza
#blazers @ Rose Garden Arena. It's good to see Greg smiling since the last time we saw him he was frowning while standing next to some Amazonian chick wearing nipple tassels. Quick math for you today: Oden has played 82 career NBA games & has earned $21.8mm. That's $265,853 per game. Tell that to your coworker.
Duke is a very prestigious academic institution so you know what that means. The girls aren't as hot. Here is an example of that except with a cheerleader. Sir'Dominic Pointer of St. John's gave us his best confused face. Like a hoard of zombies, the Cameron Crazies taunted the St. John's player and all tried to tough them. Check out the Blue Devils taking on St. John's after the JUMP!
It's probably not a very good idea to fear a Guy Fawkes mask anytime other than November the 5th. Well this Arizona bro decided to do it and it got him on College Gameday. The signs today were all pretty bad ass. We caught a guy who made a face hole for his sign. many internet memes, and a "Washington is Tuuurrable" sign. The Arizona Wildcats take on the Washington Huskies tonight. Check out the madness after the JUMP!
Our ex-wife, Adriana Lima, was in St. Barts today taking part in multiple bikini photoshoots that you'll probably be seeing soon in a Victoria's Secret magazine or some other catalog. Honeybuns seems to be all the way back after pumping out a kid with her former NBA d-bag husband Marko Jaric. It still pains us that he enjoys sex with this Brazilian beauty. We figure the payback is that he is now a loser mooching off his wife's bikini modeling skills. Photos - JUMP!
Here's what we know about the NBA career of Greg Oden - it's over. Face it, the guy is never playing again. But, we're still left with a guy who can take a random moment with a chick wearing nipple stickers and turn it into Internet gold. The short chick is named Teyana Taylor. Black dudes in the Harlem 'hood know who she is. We're really white so she's about as important to us as Elisabeth Hasselbeck is to a black dude. Anyway, this is what Teyana uploaded to Twitter. JUMP!
The big news flying around the Internet tonight centers around the women's basketball game at Central Michigan who is facing Ohio. Of course we only care about this because of the oddity. It's not like women's basketball players throw down that often, especially in the MAC. Boots on the ground say there were punches thrown, coaches on the floor and even ejections. (Um, someone get us the name of that blonde ref, NOW!) JUMP!
We're told by @JJMandros that this is from last night's Desert Mountain vs. Chaparral (Arizona) basketball game where DM beat its rival and rush the court for an impromptu #Tebowing. First rush the court #Tebowing in high school basketball history? Seems to be unless one of you sends in proof of another: firstname.lastname@example.org. And here we figured the craze would die out when Baby Jesus went back to building hospitals in the Phillippines. Nope.
