From BC Afternoon Editor Monty: You'd think an NBA player not named Doug Christie would wear the pants in his relationship. Apparently, we need to think again when it comes to Jimmer Fredette & his WAG Whitney Wonnacott after seeing their Halloween costume. Oh yes, it's coordinated! It's wholesome! And it's also totally unmanly. That's why we're revoking Jimmer's man card until future notice. Check it!
Hell, he's got nothing else to do, so Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hung out at Carolina Panthers practice today. While he was there he threw footballs at the goal post with Cam Newton & Co., which, it turns out, is a game players play in their free time. We didn't see Newton come through, but Curry did... and then he posed for the camera. Here's the video. Check it!
Dick Vitale isn't taking the Joe Paterno news very well. Look at the bags under his eyes as he opens his morning paper at the Broken Egg on Siesta Key. He's upset, has been lashing out at Paterno and Jerry Sandusky on Twitter and wants answers. He's even going off on Mike McQueary. The guy just tries to get some breakfast and sign some autographs and has to deal with this collegiate tragedy. We have an intern just tracking Vitale. Here is the report card. JUMP!

It's the best basketball news we've heard in years. Brooklyn Decker, on Twitter today, announced that she'll be playing in a game of H-O-R-S-E with Magic Johnson & James Worthy during halftime of the UNC-Michigan State game on the USS Vinson. It's the same boat that carried Osama bin Laden's body to its watery grave. What a great way to give back to troops on Veterans Day - Brooklyn Decker shooting hoops. Your HORSE hero explains - JUMP!
As the NBA and the NBA Players meet today with David Stern promising a war the athletes don't want if they pass on his 50-50 revenue split offer. In other words, either the players call Stern's bluff or take the deal. If Stern isn't bluffing, the NBA season will, in effect, be over. The players will dig in. So will the owners. The real losers here are all those workers caught in the crossfire, such as Miami Heat dancer Ashley F. Her career hangs in the balance. JUMP!
Via BC Assignment Editor Monty: So, (I) really feel weird about saying this, but it almost looks like Lamar Odom's wife, Khloe Kardashian is suddenly passable as a woman. We know. Read that sentence again. We gotta give credit where credit is due, though. We were really disappointed in Lamar for a long time. He married the ugly Kardashian sister, but hell, she got rid of the adam's apple and found a gym. Check it!
Okay, it's true. We pretty much hate everything about women's basketball. However, once in a while something comes our way that says, "Hey! Pay attention to women's basketball!" Frankly, this isn''t it. Women's basketball is still a joke. The thing that isn't a joke is Elena Sichkar. Really. You need to see this. This broad was in the Russian version of Maxim under the title of "Erotic Basketball." Women's basketball has never looked so good. Check it!
The Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries joke marriage is no more and the people are sad. Some fans got together in New York this week to hold a candlelight vigil in honor of the fake nuptials and we've got the photos to prove it. We've also got the latest prop bets on Kardashian's next target from BoDog.com. Tiger Woods? Sure, why the hell not! Actually, we're not taking that action. There are some nice bets, though. Check it!
Our old friend Lonnie Hanover is at it again. The New York strip club vet has introduced a genius marketing plan during the on-going NBA lockout. The Rick's Cabaret Basketball League. Of course Lonnie sent an invite to our partners at Coed Magazine to attend today's presser. Of course Coed was there with a camera. Rick's is planning for their ladies to play 2 games over 2 days – November 17th and 18th. If only they can get A.C. Green to ref. JUMP!
It's the story that the Internet will be choking on this morning. We've already linked this story out, yet found some interesting videos of last night's Kevin Durant flag football appearance on the Oklahoma State University campus. Skip Bayless will turn this into a three-day series of debates. "Kevin Durant could start in the NFL - RIGHT NOW!" And "Kevin Durant has enough QB skills to play for Seahawks - RIGHT NOW! KD35 throwing picks - JUMP!
Of course we are upset at the sham that was the Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries wedding. Of course we feel as if both of them were co-conspirators in this racket to make millions off a fake marriage. Busted Coverage has sent a letter in Kim's name to E! Entertainment requesting $29.50 or the 24" Dove Grey napkin we purchased for Kardashian-Humphries to be returned. It's a simple request for a woman who made an estimated $17,000,000 off the sham wedding. JUMP!
TMZ has the exclusive this morning on how Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce and has suckered your stupid wife/GF into more of her 'reality' garbage. 72 days. That's all. Not even through one meaningful holiday. TMZ says,"We're told even though the marriage was short, she will not seek an annulment." Well, divorce sells many more magazines than that stupid 'annulment' word. Like, what the hell does that mean anyway. JUMP!
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.
