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!
Hopkins is the taller of the two guys, wearing sunglasses, 21 hour stubble. No idea who the short dude is, but he's part of what is now the outing of Erin Andrews and Cougartown actor Josh Hopkins as a new couple. Good for EA. And word up to Hopkins, her clock is ticking. Hopefully this dude is aware of the baby talk she's muttered over the past couple years. Bro, you're walking into a hurricane. Ready? JUMP!
17 years have passed since Jalen Rose was photographed in his red draft day attire. Yesterday, the ESPN analyst added to his Google Image search results with an orange jumpsuit mugshot that TMZ immediately slapped with its watermark. But don't cry for Rose, who'll be serving somewhere around 18 days for his DUI conviction. He won't get the normal inmate treatment at a suburban Detroit jail. JUMP!
Our good friend and BC contributor Peter Burns hit us up on Twitter this afternoon to tell us his old homeboys from the San Antonio radio days tell him that David Robinson is selling his giant estate. The big news here is that The Admiral lived in a gated community so this is like trying to bust into Fort Knox to figure out the details. We know a few details on the pad: there are very high ceilings, a basketball/tennis court and plenty of neutral décor. JUMP!
Hey, all the douchebags are doing it! Get a leg tattoo of your favorite ballers face and you'll be the coolest douchebag on your block! But hurry, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James have already been taken, so act fast before all the awesome players are gone. If you are willing to get Briant Cardinal tatted on your leg, email us and let us pay for it. firstname.lastname@example.org
Kevin Love may play for one of the worst teams in the NBA (Minnesota Timberwolves), but he's still a hell of a player. So, when he says something, people listen. Love, who's doing duty as a beach volleyball player during the lockout, didn't pull any punches when he was asked this week about the Miami Heat. Sounds like someone might be a little drunk on the Cuervo tequila he's pimping. The quotes - JUMP!
Of course it was surprising to get the mail yesterday and find a piece of mail with a Los Angeles mailing stamp and no return address. Trying to rack our brain as to which road beef this might be, it became apparent upon opening the card that this was coming from the Kim Kardashian camp. Nope, no L.A. road beef for us named Kim. To our disbelief, Kim's handlers actually sent BC a card for that napkin we bought for her wedding - JUMP!
Where do we start with this one? That weird wood bench? The plastic gloves? The panda looking like it's smiling? Carmelo Anthony's face? The blue surgical suit? WTF is going on with those NBAers who are traveling around Asia. Folks, we are honestly just a couple of more panda dry humps away from losing an NBAer to the Far East. Step up, Stern. Ban travel to China. Ban panda candids. We cannot possibly let this happen to U.S. basketball. JUMP!
Gilbert Arenas really knows hot to drive the MediaTakeOut.com crew, and white people who are totally offended by black athletes talking about their road beef, crazy. It seems that some time last night, Agent Zero uploaded a new avatar for his Twitter account and it just happened to be a screen shot of his BlackBerry road beef categories. Of course they're offensive. Of course an NBAer categorizing "Girls Who Gave It Up" will drive Skip Bayless nuts. JUMP!
Planking is all the rage among athletes these days, which is probably because most of them -- especially those in the NBA -- have too much time on their hands. It's even caught on in the typically stuffy world of golf, where Bubba Watson has taken the fad to Denmark. This, and other great moments in athlete planking for your enjoyment. JUMP!
Yes, Kevin Love was actually jumping up and down to swat a volleyball in the middle of Times Square this afternoon as part of his new endorsement deal with Jose Cuervo. You might remember the most famous NBAer to ever play beach volleyball. Cuervo, in its marketing materials, mentions Love as a possible qualifier for the Jose Cuervo Pro Volleyball Series stop Aug. 26 in California. But for today, he teamed with lovely Jess Gysin for some press publicity. JUMP!
Remember whitey Mark Madsen and his goofy NBA championship celebration dances? Yeah, he was regaled in the black community as a laughingstock and his street cred was about as low as humanly possible. Well, black man, looks who's back and has his name in a court case over a domain name, $110k and eBay. A guy is going to jail and it's all over a web domain. After this story you won't be laughing at Ellsworth ever again. Seriously. Details - JUMP!
Our dream of Kim Kardashian going to Vegas this weekend and having her giant ass deflated during a skydiving incident over the Stratosphere didn't come to fruition. Instead, how about a giant stuffing of Bachelorette/Bachelor weekend fun from the Kardashian/Humphries camps? Oh, yes please. Over/Under on how many years Kris Humphries can take of this garbage? 1 year, 9 months. Midget male stripper - JUMP!
