The "Jimmer Fredette is kinda like Tim Tebow" train rolled into Sacramento this weekend with the introduction of the franchise draft picks at the Arden Fair Mall. Yes, a mall. With that crappy high school stage bunting. Yes, with a cheesy intro DJ. And lots of bored Sacramento fans ready to jump on the back of a 6-2 gunner from BYU. This is what basketball has become in Sac Town. Catch the fever - AFTER THE JUMP - with a mall full of Jimmer fans.
Oh, look! Dick Vitale, Wes Welker, Welker's girlfriend Anna Burns and two blondes hoping to use Vitale as a reference to move up in the Hooters bikini calendar world. People, as BC mentioned Saturday morning, it's Dick Vitale's world and we're all just witnesses to a 72-year-old machine. He was in Miami all weekend to host the Miss Hooters International 2011 and to see how many photos he could upload to his Twitpic account. Full recap - JUMP!
From all indications it was a slow Friday night in the sports world, but we were required to show you Shawn Marion visiting the Hooters pageant in Miami. If for no other reason, just take a moment to appreciate what a 6-7 Marion looks like next to Mini Me who's throwin' up peace signs. Of course Dickie V was in the house because as we all know, there isn't much that guy doesn't like other than chicken wings, implants and a microphone. Pics - Jump!
Winding down the work week here at Busted Coverage and look what pops up on the Twitter feed. Having already nearly puked over the site of Pirates' closer Joel Hanrahan getting a pedicure and his nails painted, it seems we have a theme this week. Yes, that is an Asian chick filing Kevin Durant's nails. Seriously. Giant calluses. Warts. All of it - JUMP!
It's OFFICIALLY hot - culturally - to hate the Miami Heat when Kanye West wears a Dallas Mavericks "snap back" (as the kids are calling these hats) to a Louis Vuitton show in Paris. It's an even bigger insult when Dwayne Wade is at the same show and both are big supporters of the Louis brand. Here are the two sharing a smile backstage at the Louis show. Notice where that Mavs cap is. No pics of Kanye and Wade together with that hat. Multiple pics - JUMP!
That tall black dude is Bismack Biyombo. Michael Jordan fell in love with him the other night and drafted him. Or so we thought ESPN was telling us. Then we see he's wearing a Sacramento Kings cap in his interview with Mark Jones. Come to find out, the Kings still had rights to the pick, pending an approved NBA trade to the Bobcats. Seriously, NBA. Between names we cannot pronounce and guys wearing the wrong caps, the NBA Draft is a JOKE. It's a complete cluster@#$% &.
UPDATE: Eva Photo Overload! Never heard of Jan Vesely? Same here. But the guy put on a show with his girlfriend after her was selected by Washington with the #6 pick. Who is the blond that started grabbing Jan's hair? Her name is Eva Kodouskova and in true Busted Coverage style, we've traveled the world to dig up some photos of the hottest blond NBA Draft followers have seen in years. Photos - JUMP!
BC Associate Editor Monty sent us this dispatch: I know it's disappointing, but your plan to be totally original and get a tattoo of Dallas Mavericks' forward and NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki tattooed on your ass is going to need some work. Someone has already beat you to it. His name is Derek Dilday and he did it because... well, he's a dumbass.
They honored their new favorite son J.J. Barea with a parade in San Juan, Puerto Rico this afternoon. Unfortunately, a motorcycle rally broke out during the sad, one-float parade for the World Champion Dallas Mavericks guard. And where is the Miss Universe girlfriend? Wait until you see what Barea says about a Puerto Rico parade vs. a Dallas championship parade. The nerve! JUMP!
It's been a whirlwind 10 days for Tyson Chandler. He's won an NBA championship, been a guest judge on the Miss U.S.A. pageant and then closed Monday on the sale of his Chicago mansion that had been on the market for 4 years. Yes, 4! Originally purchased for $4mm and then listed for $5mm, Chandler finally succumbed to the real estate market with a sale of the 7,309 sq. ft. home in Northfield, IL for $2.1mm. Photos and details of what Chandler just sold - JUMP!
Mark Cuban, still riding high from taking a leak with the Larry O'Brien, has filed court papers that serve as a response to 2010 papers filed by Ross Perot Jr. claiming that Cuban was a "careless" owner. It's well documented that Perot Jr. is a nutjob who once spent millions to set a world record as first person to fly a helicopter around the world. These court papers should once and forever keep Jr. quiet and busy cleaning those sweet lenses. JUMP!
Possibly sensing his days in San Antonio are numbered, Tony Parker threw a HUGE house party Sunday and allowed half of San Antonio to show up for a DJ'd blowout bash. We're not talking Hollywood elite at the $7.1mm house that he and Eva Longoria started to build in 2008. This was straight up hood rats that seemed to be handpicked off Twitter. Think: hoochies that Eva would never let on her 16.5 acre spread. See Tony's bash and this insane pool - JUMP!
The biggest day in the life of Jimmer Fredette's girlfriend, Whitney Wonnacott, is just 3 days away when her boyfriend and future meal ticket is expected to be a lottery pick in the NBA Draft. We've been tracking Whitney's tweets as she gets manicured & pedicured for the moment when ESPN cameras catch her balling over news that Jimmer has just made her a multi-millionaire WAG. Whitney's NBA Draft tweets and photos - JUMP!
Our coworkers at Coed tipped us off to a chick on Twitter who goes by the handle @Heathero14 who who already her Dallas Mavericks NBA Championship shirt. As an added bonus, Heather took the time to do some mirror shots of the new shirt. This combination of skin, her fandome and our need to post a gallery of Heather's greatest work has resulted in her being named "World's Sexiest Dallas Mavericks Fan." Those wishing to compete with Heather are encouraged to email us. email@example.com Gallery! JUMP!
The people are starting to line the parade route in Dallas this morning for the Dallas Mavericks attempt to regain some thunder after Vancouver Canucks fan one-upped Sunday's Club LIV performance. But, Mark Cuban ain't going down without a fight. He's even bringing out the obese male dancers. We're hearing that AT&T service is pretty much useless in downtown as an estimated 250,000 fans have gathered to cheer the Mavs for destroying ghetto basketball. Stay tuned. Gallery coming soon.
The guy wearing the "How's My Dirk Taste" shirt after the Mavs returned to Dallas after winning the NBA Championship has been arrested in Dallas for public intoxication. Surprisingly, DeShawn Stevenson DID NOT party with the rest of the Mavs at Club LIV after Gm 6. He actually played cards & thought about his pregnant wife at home, Dan Steinberg blogs. Full details of how DShaw hasn't slept in days and was arrested last night - JUMP!
The Giant Ass was on Leno last night to tell the world how the engagement process went down between her and Kris Humphries (yes, this is our job to track such stupid garbage). That crap bored us to death, but the moneyshot had yet to be dropped. Um, yes, Kim says there will be a prenup which has our hands wringing. Remember yesterday? Yeah, we bought a $22.50 napkin for these millionaires. More Giant Ass pics & Kim's prenup reasoning - JUMP.
Leave it to German newspapers to make the NBA Finals into a race story. Welt Online, one of Germany's largest daily papers, is considered to be a conservative voice of the citizenry. The paper is also now famous within the sports blogosphere as the rag that allowed Peter Schelling to turn Dirk vs. the Heat into Dirk vs. black guys who have tats and "wrinkled faces," as Pete writes. Seriously, this guy will probably never drink for free at Club LIV. More of the racist barrage - JUMP!
And the photos keep rolling in. At some point we figured there would be a shot of Mark Cuban doing something crazy with the Larry O'Brien trophy but it never crossed our minds that someone would snap the billionaire going boss move by taking the goods to take for a leak. That's exactly what Busted Coverage came across this afternoon. Mark's legend officially grows. FULL SFW PHOTO - JUMP!!
