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!
That white guy is famous movie star Hugh Jackman. He writes on his Twitpic account: "And I thought I was tall! so cool 2 meet Lebron. only time I have seen my son star struck & me too" Hugh, obviously high on Bron Bron aura, forgets to add that he promptly told his son that if he ever catches the boy wearing his hat like that there will be a Wolverine on his ass like white on rice. Look for LeBron in a Take A Sheet commercial. It's coming.
On Wednesday, we introduced you to the lovely MMA Ring Girl Iryna Ivanova who also happens to be an Arizona grad working on her M.B.A. She's also making her world magazine debut as Playboy's Miss August 2011. Lucky ass 5 Questions Editor Joe Student got to work on his Russian pickup lines and he learns about a specific NBA player Iryna would like to see naked. Dwight Howard, you have an admirer. JUMP!
People do stupid things to cars to celebrate their favorite athletes or teams while most of us just attach the car flag to the window on game day. Today we get a look at the Paul Pierce El Camino that screams load of mulch in the afternoon and chick machine after dark. Ladies, don't resist the urge. You know riding in this will be the highlight of your single life. Jump in and let this El Camino show you a good time. JUMP!
Yesterday we learned that Mavs gunner JJ Barea had knocked up his Puerto Rican girlfriend, Zuleyka Rivera. Yeah, she just happens to be the 2006 Miss Universe. BC also recently heard through the gossip sites that Mavs' Rudy Fernandez has been spending quality time with the lovely Helen Lindes. She just happened to be 2nd runner-up in the 2000 Miss Universe competition, giving the Mavs a huge advantage over other NBA WAGs. JUMP!
Remember 8 weeks ago when we said JJ Barea should waste no time figuring out a way to marry his girlfriend Zuleyka Rivera. Yeah, well the Mavericks shooting guard picked the NBA Finals to make things happen and impregnate the 2006 Miss Universe. A radio station rumor in Puerto Rico yesterday turned into the truth and now the island nation is bracing for its first super baby of the 21st Century. Details - JUMP!
Were you in Vegas last night and happen to see a 6'6" former five-time NBA world champion wearing a lace spaghetti strap top and an Ed Hardy hat? Yeah, it's no big deal. Just Dennis Rodman celebrating his 50th birthday. The best part of the night? His birthday meal that reminded us of death row inmates chowing on their final meal. Oh, and have no fear, Rodman did make it rain for the women. So. Much. Fun! Details - JUMP!
BC received a bitchy email yesterday from Pete in Orlando where the question was raised about the new Busted Coverage Cribs series. "Dude, seriously, who cares if an athlete is selling his house. More cheerleaders and less Scottie Pippen putting green." Um, Pete, it's July. Finding cheerleader material is nearly impossible. But locating an athlete who's been trying to sell a mansion is easy & we are providing a service. Today - J Rich. JUMP!
Over the weekend we showed you video of Michael Jordan making tee box bet with some bros who gave total effort trying to get into the head of the legend. Today we get clearer audio and an insane close-up of Jordan coming in for his stash of what we assume are Benjamins. Would you dare make a golf bet with Mike and be throwing down $20s? The guy flies in this plane. He wipes the windows with $20s. Full video - JUMP!
Our blogging buddy, Rick Chandler from NBC's Off The Bench, was in Tahoe over the weekend to cover the American Century Classic. Of course the boating crazies were out and one pack of bikini chicks came armed with a poster board message for Jimmer Fredette. Best sign we've seen in 6 months? Not even a competition. Congrats, ladies, you've officially guaranteed yourselves a permanent ban from Utah - forever.
Our Busted Coverage Cribs series rolls along with a venture into the head of Scottie Pippen, who is best known for squandering his NBA fortune. How bad off is the former Chicago Bulls' legend? He actually had a yard sale earlier this year. But it's not all gloom & doom for Pips. He's sitting on a Fort Lauderdale house that he bought in 2000 for $1.34mm. The asking price in 2011 - $16,000,000! Who's dumb with cash now, homies? JUMP!
The numbers cannot lie. Jimmer Fredette's rookie campaign at the American Century Classic Championship was a dude. Like worse than Charles Barkley dud. 83 - mostly sports figures - entered the tourney & only one guy walked away with the "Worst Golfer In Sports" label. Jimmer. How bad was it? Scoring a -30 (with the very relaxed scoring system) is nearly impossible, but Jimmer hit that mark. Barkley? -16 after 4 days of drinking.
Ho hum, Chris Bosh got married this weekend in Miami and the biggest news from the event was LeBron James and his shaved face. Seriously, for the 'urban' community this event is totally bigger than the Ben Roethlisberger wedding coming up THIS SATURDAY! But leave it to some rich white dude to be the guy responsible for uploading the only 'insider' pics from Bosh's bash. Repeat, a white guy. PICS - JUMP!
Here is what we learned about Jimmer Fredette's day of golf today at the American Century Classic: he's out of his league. As if being a bad golfer wasn't enough of an embarrassment, the ACC folks just had to partner him with Tim Tebow and Herm Edwards. Two holy rollers & Mr. Speech Pathologist. Snoozer. Meanwhile, Jimmer's girlfriend was being hounded by the horny bros walking the course. JUMP!
