Former Boston Celtics & Miami Heat multi-millionaire Antoine Walker has fallen pretty far since his (kind of) glorious NBA days. Walker is having a little financial difficulty. He filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and was just forced to sell his 2006 NBA Championship ring. It fetched a nice price, but isn't going to come anywhere near paying off Walker's debt. Oh, and did we mention Antoine is playing in the D-League? Gotta make a paycheck somehow, we guess. JUMP!
It was nearly a storybook finish... until stupidity took over. Down by three with four seconds left, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Martell Webster steals the inbounds pass, races down court and... goes directly in for an awesome dunk! Timberwolves lose. We've got the video, which showcases not only the stupidity of the play, but also the reactions that followed. Let's just say, we weren't the only ones dumbfounded. Check it!
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio has game, but that doesn't mean he gets a pass from rookie hazing. No, the Spaniard gets the same treatment as all first-year players. Thanks to veteran center Brad Miller, Rubio will be sporting a Justin Bieber backpack off the court for the remainder of the season. It's a sweet little number too... if you're a 10-year-old girl. We fully endorse Miller's choice. Check it!
Things are bad in Minnesota. Real bad. Their sports teams are so wretched they went and named a WNBA player their sportsperson of the year. Yeah, we know the Minnesota Lynx won the WNBA title... or at least we do now. They really had no other choice but to name Seimone Augustus their sportsperson of the year because, well, the rest of their teams blow. Here's a look at how this all went down. It ain't pretty. Check it!
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!
