Our friends at Taylor Strategy (P.R. barons that you get to know once you become a blogging conglomerate like BC) send word today that Kevin Love's professional volleyball debut didn't go as planned yesterday. To be honest, we didn't even think Love would go through with the plan to play on the Jose Cuervo Volleyball circuit. But there he was yesterday on Manhattan Beach impressing the Cuervo Girls. JUMP!
J.J. Redick and his cute Kellie Pickler cloned wife, Chelsea, are currently enroute to San Francisco via a Virgin Atlantic flight. Even though J.J. has made millions in the NBA, he claims to have never flown Virgin. Yeah, you learn something new every day on Busted Coverage. J.J. is so excited about his adventure that he and the wife are taking photos for their Christmas cards. JUMP!
Shockingly it has been two days since LeBron James jumped 33-feet into the pool where diving competitions were held during the 1992 Olympics without a peep from mainstream reporters. TMZ broke the ice today with two photos of The King on the platform. A Youtube video also surfaced, showing James waiting three minutes without jumping. What's this all about? Nike built a basketball court over the pool. It was an exhibition. Seriously. JUMP!
Back in early 2008 there was a lawsuit filed, on behalf of Mike Bibby, by lawyers who were trying to get the NBAers Chevy Impala back from a customizing shop. The case got ugly & ended up on TMZ. The ride eventually became another pimped ride lost to a world of shady used car lots & hucksters trying to get $35,000 on eBay. Bibby's Impala has seen better days. But it's still famous. Got some coke cash? Blow it here! JUMP!
It was the wedding of the century for women who spend their weeknights infatuated with a 'reality' star who rose to fame for a sex tape and via the pimping from E! cameras. But we were sucked into this garbage once it was announced that Kim Kardashian had bagged NBAer Kris Humphries. He went from no-name scrub to an instant heartthrob for 15-year-old girls in Dubuque, Iowa. Anyway, the two 'stars' got married last night and America went nuts - on Twitter. JUMP!
You're not invited to the Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries nuptials tomorrow and now neither is part of Bruce Jenner's family. Kardashian trimmed her guest list by 50 people reportedly because the venue couldn't hold them. We're sure no one will be angry about this. More importantly, we've got a gallery of Kim and that great ass! One more day until she's off the market. Your move, Bush. JUMP!
It looks like they've confused LeBron James with Buddha in China. James, who's touring the country, is being swarmed like a deity and Chinese are cramming themselves into places you need a shoe horn to get them out of just to get a glimpse. It must be because he's American, unless they're a nation that worships choke artists. Take a look at the lengths people are going to just to get near this fourth-quarter disappearing act. JUMP!
We now know, thanks to the i-Team at US Weekly, that Orlando Magic forward Ryan Anderson is dating reality star and model Gia Allemand. The couple has been publicly gushing over each other on Twitter and, as we're sure you expected, say they're in the perfect relationship. Of course this isn't Gia's first rodeo with a jersey. She once dated Carl Pavano and NHLer Chris Campoli. Nothing could possibly go wrong here, could it? Bikinis! Tweets! JUMP!
Yes, that photo is blurry as are the details out of China where Georgetown got into a damn nice brawl with some local yokel team. According to Washington Post reporter Gene Wang, who was there, both benches emptied in the fracas. "Chairs were being thrown. Players and coaches had to dodge water bottles hurled from stands," Wang tweeted. This all went down like 2 hours ago and we already have photos of Hoyas facing off with the Red Army. JUMP!
Three former UCLA Bruins -- Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook and Baron Davis -- have been attending classes this summer in an effort to complete their degrees. On Wednesday they were joined by music mogul and entrepreneur Diddy. No word on what class these clowns are taking, but you can be sure it isn't a class in the Molecular and Medical Pharmacology department.
Former University of Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl doesn't have much use for his gigantic multi-million dollar home these days. Since he doesn't have a job, he probably can't afford the mortgage payments either. Pearl's Knoxville home can be yours for only $2.7 million. Ever wondered what it's like to have three laundry facilities in your house. Buy this pad. Here's what you get. JUMP!
In case you didn't know, LeBron James is now on a China tour very similar to the one Carmelo Anthony, Shaq, CP3 and other NBAers went on in July. It's such a parallel trip that even LeBron had to get his obligatory panda picture. That turned into a fiasco as Twitter dorks are hammering him over his receding hairline. You know, in a way we actually feel sorry for this guy. Are there other NBAers on this trip with him? Not that we can see. Isn't the King supposed to have boys?
Just 7 days until the mega-wedding of the 21st century for E! Entertainment. The Kardashian-Humphries extravaganza is nearly here and the couple decided to get away for a relaxing final weekend before the craziness of marriage & camera crews engulf their lives. Of course one of the stupid sisters had to go along to Bora Bora because the more bikini action the better for E!. Just throwing this out there. Kim looking a little chubby wearing purple? Ask your wife/girlfriend to chime in. JUMP!
We've done gone and solved your problems once again! That $40,000 burning a hole in your pocket -- this is what you need to do with it. Rent Miami Heat center Zydrunas Ilgauskas' Soho townhouse for a month! You'll even have $3,000 left over for call girls! The place even comes with an Old School poster in one of the bedrooms. This place has it all. Check it out in the Busted Coverage real estate listings. JUMP!
It's the photo that all the Adobe Photoshop p-funk hipmasters are chatting about this week. Shaq and his new-ish girlfriend 'Hoopz' exiting a store has become the Internet's fun thanks to the 7-footer and his spray-tanned honey. When a photo gets passed from I-Am-Bored to Reddit to Buzzfeed, it can be considered to have considerable hipster street cred. See what the Photoshoppers have been up to - JUMP!
Shaquille O'Neal has a new girlfriend, Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander, who clocks in at 5-foot-1. We're not saying Shaq's girlfriend needs to be the size of Lisa Leslie but this is a tad ridiculous. Ahh, but Hoopz height isn't nearly as ridiculous as those Jorts Shaq is rocking. Where exactly does one go to buy a pair of Jorts to fit a 7-footer? And there are even more questions about the girlfriend. JUMP!
