Tempers were high during Game 6 of the NBA Playoffs where Ray Allen and Mario Chalmers got into a little bit of a fight. Chalmers was guarding Allen pretty tight but didn't do anything out of the ordinary. Allen retaliated by shoving Chalmers and getting in his face. Apparently the refs weren't watching and decided to give Chalmers a technical foul for doing nothing but getting abused by Ray Allen. If the Miami Heat lose tonight, they get eliminated from the playoffs. JUMP!
If LeBron is the epitome of everything fans hate about NBA morons, Kevin Durant has to be on the other end of the spectrum. It's nearly impossible to hate the guy. Hugs his mother without kissing her on the lips like LeBron. Durant plays well with others. Shoots 53% in the Spurs series. And, he doesn't wear stupid hipster glasses during press conferences. Now he's headed to an NBA Finals at 23. Here's your morning newspaper in OKC. (via @jordanrichison)
It has come down to this in Oklahoma City. A Game 6 at home to win the NBA's Western Conference Finals. A possible passing of the torch. Of course it's a young franchise with guys in their early 20s and porn stars Bibi Jones & Jesse Jane as two of the Thunder's biggest supporters. It's like a Busted Coverage NBA dream come true. Hell yes we're riding Durant, Harden, Jones & Jane straight into the NBA Finals. JUMP!
Urban Dictionary defines 'baller' as: A thug that has "made it" to the big time. Originally referred ball players that made it out of the streets to make millions as a pro ball player, but now is used to describe any thug that is living large. Enter this photo of Mark Cuban chest traying a Bud Light Platinum at Tao Vegas back in May (via @chelsealcaswell). This photo just might be the best Cuban pic we've ever run. The epitome of Internet/NBA baller. JUMP!
Nope, wasn't just dorky, suburban white guys attacking D. Wade's post-game lenseless glasses. Black America has officially seen enough of the nerdy glasses and reacted last night. Black chicks hated the look. Black dudes are dropping "gay" references. It appears that the walls are collapsing on Wade and LeBron and the lenseless glasses just might have pushed people over the top. Are we watching the end of an empire? If you listen to Twitter, then yes we are. JUMP!
Wait, wasn't the return of Chris Bosh all it would take for the Miami Heat to win Game 5 and the ECF? Bosh had 9; LeBron dropped 30; Wade had 27. So sad for the Big 3. It has all come down to a Game 6 on Thursday for ESPN's Dream Team of the 21st Century. Guess who didn't show up to the post-game presser? Yeah, Wade and LeBron. They're rattled, can't perform with games on the line and don't want to show off their hipster glasses. Let's get rolling!
This was posted at about 11 p.m. EST on the NBA on ESPN Facebook account. Guess who won 94-90? Yeah, Boston did and is one win from the Finals. Good work, ESPN.
Amare Stoudemire, in case you were in bed, celebrated his recent engagement by breaking out the gayest Miami-inspired costume he could possibly find for tonight's game. After all, it's Miami. Larry The Cable Guy. Rick Vaughn. Tribute to Adam Yauch. That's all the comes to mind with this look. By the way, is that a Jewish star? Honorary Jew? And where do I get a jean vest these days? Levis selling those? Gap? So many questions. More screencaps - JUMP!
At first we just thought Michelle Beadle was being all witty with this tweet last night during Game 5 of Thunder-Spurs. Her dad wouldn't really be sitting courtside sucking on a cigar, would he? So one thing lead to another and Beads really confirmed to us that this is her father, Bob Beadle, sucking on a handmade. Was the cigar necessary? Probably not, but this is just how Bob Beadle rolls. Have a problem, punk? JUMP!
Why do certain single black mothers always seem to act like morons at events where being civil, quiet and reasonable is the norm, not the exception? Take this high school graduation in Florence, South Carolina. Parents were told not to cheer when their kid was announced. Just sit there on your ass and act like a reasonable human being. Not Shannon Cooper. Police had to take her cheering ass to the county jail. JUMP!
We made the normal background inspections into this Portland, Maine newscaster chick Meghan Torjussen who is getting killed this afternoon on the Internet for her report that last night's Celtics-Heat Game 4 ended in a tie. It seems Meghan isn't the normal sportscaster. She handles hard news in Maine. School board reports. However, she went to Boston U., is from New Jersey and 'LIKES' Anchorman. She's now infamous for all the wrong reasons. JUMP!
It's all over, Jimmer Fredette's virginity (if you believe his first night was on his wedding night) is history. The Kings shooting guard and his girlfriend Whitney Wonnacott got married Friday night after causing a UFO scare on Thursday night during their rehearsal dinner. Not kidding. Had half of Colorado terrified that there were UFOs in the sky. Nope, just flaming luminaries. Again, not kidding, these idiots released flames into the sky in Colorado. JUMP!
The tambourines on "I And Love And You" have never sounded so sweet as they did this weekend when everyone's favorite German 7-footer stood in with the Avetts. Should we even be surprised Dirk is an Avetts fan? Um, of course not. Biggest panty dropping tour of the summer. Chicks just ripping off clothes at the sound of a banjo. Shaking their asses to the stand-up bass. Cheerleaders finally banging band dorks playing weird instruments. Viva Avetts! Let's get rolling!
Dirk Nowitski of the Dallas Mavericks was invited on stage by the indie rock band The Avett Brothers. Dirk chose to play the tambourine to one of their songs called "Sally's Lover". We already knew that Nowitski likes to listen to David Hasselhoff before a game but we never knew he was a fan of indie rock. Nowitski was even kind enough to put on a t-shirt of the band and take some photos with it. JUMP!
The University of Connecticut is actually going to make this horrible t-shirt and actually sanctioned it. The UCONN Alumni aren't exactly happy about this t-shirt being sold at their alma mater's official website. If you purchase 50 dollars or more of these, you can get 50 percent off! What a deal. If I went to a rival school of the University of Connecticut, I would have some photoshop fun with this. Full t-shirt after the JUMP!
BC Cheerleader Expert Investigator Asher was ordered to start compiling intel on the San Antonio Spurs dancers because we figure they'll be in the NBA Finals by Wednesday or so. He came back with a little firecracker, Mandy, who is a big fan of the Kardashians, Tony Parker and I Love Lucy. Hell yes that's a well-rounded girl right there. She also has a decent collection of Twitpics for her 97 Twitter followers. How does a Spurs dancer only have 97 followers? Mind-boggling. JUMP!
The day he divorces his right hand. The day he marries the love of his life. The day he loses his virginity. It's finally here for Jimmer Fredette. The Kings shooting guard & BYU legend will marry his longtime girlfriend Whitney Wonnacott tonight at a Denver LDS temple. Yes, we bought the couple a nice present, a red spatula. The big question we have, is how long will this guy be able to perform on his wedding night? 3-4 minutes? 1:37? JUMP!
Is there a bigger dickhead move in Oklahoma like some rich bastard sitting courtside sucking on a stogie in an arena with a no smoking policy? Who do you think you are, Sam Farha? I learned years ago, if a chick wears hoop earrings she usually puts out on the first date for a guy sucking on a cigar at Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Oh, the Thunder won by 20. In NHL news, the Stanley Cup keeps getting disrespected. Let's get rolling!
Charles Barkley, in 2006, said that “Oklahoma is nothing but vast wasteland. No place for black people. The Oklahoma Sooners and the Hornets are the only brothers in town.” Of course the local media hasn't forgotten that quote so it's one storyline for Thursday's Game 3. The other being the 2-0 hole OKC finds itself in. Anyway, a Barkley sighting is a big deal in the city which made his jog this afternoon through downtown a big deal. JUMP!
