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.
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.
