You want to know why this NBA lockout is starting to get to the busting balls stage? Jimmer Fredette is babysitting his nephews - all day - by himself. Is this really what we want from our future NBA superstars? Babysitting gigs? If Billy Hunter and David Stern need any more reasons to get their asses in gear, it's this disaster waiting to happen. We suggest keeping an eye on @jimmerfredette this afternoon. Could get crazy.
Should we be surprised that there's a sense of urgency from Baron Davis to unload his 9,000 sq. ft. Vegas mansion? Not really. Not like homeslice is getting an NBA paycheck. But all of you figuring this is just a lockout real estate dump need to realize Baron has had this pad on the market since '09. Now it's empty & perfect for a porn czar looking to shoot MILF videos. Just think of all the scenes available under one roof. Pool scene. Crazy ass shower scene. JUMP!
If you're in the NBA and you're a real baller, you have to let everyone know by getting a badass back tattoo. Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is in the NBA, a baller and, of course, has a back tattoo. It is, perhaps, the most unoriginal back tattoo in the league, though. Why? Rondo jacked the Rolls-Royce logo and had it burnt into his skin. Check out Rondo and the rest of the NBA's back ink in this gallery. Jump!
You play some rec basketball. Used to wear those Strength Shoes (remember the Seinfeld episode?). But the vertical has always been an issue. Driving to the rack and dropping buckets for the college intramural team has been a nightmare. Well, whiteboy, we're about to make you even more miserable courtesy of 7-2 Roy Hibbert and his standing 48-inch box jump today at Georgetown where he's working out. Roy dropped this video on Twitter about 10 minutes ago. JUMP!
LeBron James went 'All Things Liverpool Football Club' on Twitter this morning at about 5:40 a.m. EST. He even uploaded this photo of him and the boys destroying cups of tea this morning before the LFC vs. Manchester United match (7:40 a.m. EST on ESPN3.com) This is all part of LeBron's image as an international entity and it's to be expected. One man is a corporation based on name and no rings. Meanwhile, Dirk is somewhere destroying magnums and chuckling.
Cake is delicious and so when you combine cake and sports you sometimes end up with something pretty cool. New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire recently received a pristine cake featuring his new Nikes, so we thought we go on the search for some cool sports-themed cakes, whether they're made for fans or given to some athlete to celebrate a birthday, we've got a full gallery of some pretty awesome sports cakes. Check it!
Denver Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin put his ignorance on display for all the world to see this week. Martin got in a flame war on Twitter with some fans after they said he was overpaid. It culminated with Martin saying he hopes his haters get AIDS and die. He then denied making the statement and closing his account. Brilliant! We've got the blow-by-blow rundown for you right here. Check it!
A few tweets over the last 24 hours included some interesting tidbits from the Euro basketball league. It has come to our attention that Marko Jaric doesn't have a roster spot. Basketball guru @rafael_uehara writes, "European season officialy underway and haven't seen Igor Rakocevic, Marko Jaric or Bostjan Nachbar in a squad." Um, what? That 32 yr old scrub can't even find a team in Turkey? This means Adriana is now a WAG Breadwinner! JUMP!
Get this, David Robinson hadn't tweeted in four days until dropping some emotional feelings on us this afternoon. Says the Admiral: I miss Steve Jobs already. I hope the team at Apple can keep it going. Yes, that tweet came from David's iPad. What's the former Spurs great up to these days? We're pretty sure he just reads his Bible on the iPad and watches Navy football games on Saturday afternoons. In other words, he's as boring as you imagined.
Great work from the billboard artists in Phoenix and Houston where the same billboard, just different playa & colors, have made their debuts. Perfect timing, insanely cool concept. Get it? Future Has Arrived. But, your team's future will most likely be playing in Turkey or Russia. In other news this morning, Steve Jobs is dead. That meant the Westboro Baptist Church had to make a statement. "No peace for man who served self, not God," via iPhone. No shit, seriously.
The Milwaukee Bucks' Stephen Jackson has a new rap video for his song "The Season" and it's, uh... we'll let you decide. If you like videos with lots of bling, piles of money laying around, talk of the streets, dudes hangin' with the homies and stuff about the NBA lockout, this is definitely up your alley. Stack Jack, as Jackson calls himself, is no Eazy E, but he's definitely something... Check it!
Of course BC introduced you to sideline reporter Kristen Ledlow and us giving her the title of "...Future Erin Andrews." She was working last night's Florida-Alabama snoozer for ESPN Radio and ran into a couple out-of-work-loser NBAers before the game. Oh, look, there's former Gators Al Horford and Joakim Noah hanging on Ledlow. And Noah's just destroying that necklace/Red Bull combo. Ledlow's gonna be huge. We warned you. JUMP!
Orlando Magic guard Gilbert Arenas may not be so pimp on the basketball court anymore, but he's dressing up as one off it. Thankfully, we can look forward to much more of Gil's clown antics, since it doesn't look like there's going to be an NBA season. Check out the full story of Gilbert Arenas' pimp suit and the full-body photo right here. Bang it!
Maybe you've heard of Hope Dworaczyk. Maybe you haven't. If the latter, then you should get to know her work. Dworaczyk was the 2010 Playmate of the Year. She's also Jason Kidd's ex and the mother of his child. Why he didn't marry her, we have no idea. He may not be the brightest guy, but we know talent when we see it. Here's a heavy dose of Hope Dworaczyk for you to enjoy. MNF could get out of hand. If so, we have you covered with 36 pics to peruse. Check it!
Portland Trailblazers forward Marcus Camby has taken a different approach to the NBA lockout. While many of his colleagues are engaging in productive activities like playing basketball, Camby is smoking dope and hitting the buffet line. Camby was busted for marijuana possession earlier this week. Here's the story.
NBA stars including Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony were fixtures at Fashion Week, which concluded last night. Wade's fashion cred is a little higher than the others, though. The Miami Heat guard was seen in the front row with Vogue editor Anna Wintour and is rumored to be launching his own line. Check out the boys and their threads in this gallery.
