The big news from tonight's Team USA vs. Brazil game in D.C.? Obama wouldn't kiss Michelle when the two ended up on the Verizon Center Kiss Cam. Seriously, fans booed, according to Huffington Post. Of course snubbing the Kiss Cam deserves a good boo. It's a non-partisan issue. Anyway, there was basketball and LeBron showed off against some Brazilian scrubs. JUMP!
It's been a wild couple days for New York Knick fans. Between the Jeremy Lin offer sheet fiasco and the Jason Kidd DUI, tabloids have material for days. The Knicks have a pretty decent (and old) roster on paper, but there are good portions of their fan base who are at wits end. They are dreading seeing Carmelo Anthony shoot 30 times a game. They are pissed to see Jeremy Lin skipping town for Houston. They hate the teams owner James Dolan. JUMP!
Remember, kids, you don't want to forget to fill your ESPN cutlines before going live with graphics because there is a guy out there waiting to bust your ass for the error. Next thing you know it's on Twitter & dorky Internet guys are LOLing at you. In other sports news, the halo on a Joe Paterno mural in State College has been modified. The halo has been painted over! Meanwhile, there seems to be an Ozzie-Bryce Harper pine tar feud. Let's get rolling!
Steve Nash of the Los Angeles Lakers just had some fans pass him some Keystone Light while he was driving in LA. He seemed to love it so much he posted it on TwitVid. He even said "the fans have been pretty good so far". These fans are going to love Nash until he misses a game winning shot but in all likeliness, Nash will stay clutch as usual. The Lakers look like a team to be reckoned with next year with their recent acquisitions. Video after the JUMP!
This, my friends, is desperation in its finest state. Former Chicago Bull/Milwaukee Buck/New Orleans Hornet Marcus Fizer must be hurting for cash because he is selling his 1999 Mercedes Benz CL500 for $10,000. Might not sound that outrageous, but he dropped $20,000 into customization alone. Chalk this up to another stupid athlete binge purchase early on in their careers. Act fast because the auction is ending in four days! JUMP!
All you gun nut, Republican, NRA members out there can chill out. We aren't posting this photo to "bring attention to gun violence in the United States." Like we care what you guys are doing with guns. This is all about image for the NBA. Nothing scares David Stern like one of his young white guys holding a handgun, especially when that whitey is wearing a 'Speed Kills' shirt. Guess that whitey! JUMP!
Listening to Robinson Cano get booed last night at the home run derby brought back so memories for us and the history of Busted. Think way back to Christmas week 2009. Cano and the Yankees had just come off a World Series title, he batted .320 and finished in the MVP voting. We received an email that week from a woman named Maria. She wanted us to see Robbie bending over a blonde in Miami. JUMP!
ESPN The Magazine unveiled its 2012 Body Issue covers today and as you can see there is a naked Rob Gronkowski, Candace Parker (WNBA) and Tyson Chandler. There will be a total of six covers. According to ESPN, "Distribution of covers is completely random," so it's possible you'll have a naked Gronk in your mailbox. Or maybe Tyson Chandler's bare ass stares at your mailman all day. It'll be random. Collect all six on eBay. JUMP!
It's been quite a while since our last #TeamBJNBA update. 12 days to be exact. We were going through withdrawal, wondering what Sarah Jay and Angelina Castro were up to. Well, it appears that the girls ran into some trouble when the NBA sent them a cease & desist order. Apparently the lawyers didn't appreciate the two busted porn "stars" using the NBA logo and the likeness of Wade, James and Bosh on their site. JUMP!
Yes, we get it Internet, that's Rick Pitino in a pool throwing up the Ls. Now let's all put our collective heads together and figure out whose pool he's enjoying. It's not the pool at the house Rick's trying to sell for $2.2 million. Who are the the chicks and the pencil in the photo? No idea. How is it even remotely possible this is the only photo from Pitino's pool day to hit the Internets? No idea. JUMP!
Yep, Ray Allen is taking his old three-point shooting abilities to South Beach next year where the Heat are quickly becoming the New York Yankees of the NBA. The sad news to this deal is that Ray Ray will only make $3 million next season, much less than the 2-year/$12M offer from the Celtics. Hell yes, black dudes went nuts on Twitter. The reaction from black guys, usually mixed, was unanimous - Ray Allen is a "f*ck nigga." JUMP!
The city of Birmingham, Alabama is trying to get it's own NBA team "not only for the entertainment but also to help local businesses and create jobs in the city of Birmingham". The movement has it's own official website, Twitter account, their own song, and videos about them. According to the website, this movement was started by a 15 year old and is gaining steam. Would you go to an NBA game in Birmingham, Alabama? JUMP!
Durant-Kobe-Gasol-Nash. Not a bad team at all. Not sure how they'll mesh during the playoffs, but should be good enough to compete with LeBron-Boshzilla-Wade-Allen. Can't wait for that NBA Finals. In golf news, here we thought Tiger Woods was OFFICIALLY BACK. Oops. Missed cut. And finally, in Chicago, police & fire rescuers, yesterday, had to save over 60 kayakers from the Chicago River. 30 boats capsized in high winds. Let's get rolling!
In case you missed it, Tony Parker was caught in the middle of an ugly scrum between Chris Brown and Drake last month. Things escalated and Parker ended up in surgery after shards of glass ended up in his eye. Enter the new specs. We understand he needs to wear them to prevent blindness, but we're just not feeling it. Not sure if its the stupid face he's making or the glasses themselves. JUMP!
Ever since Jeremy Lin made his Knicks debut last season, literally anything the guy does is newsworthy. That's why when he signed an offer sheet, the internet nearly imploded. People are so damn confused by this. Half of Twitter thinks that he is already heading to Houston. The guy signed an offer sheet and odds are the Knicks match it. Relax Twitter nation, no need for all this NSFW Lin hate! JUMP!
And the husband let her have the aisle seat. Ain't that some bullshit on the 4th of July? Of course the aisle is a man's domain. It's where he acts as an air traffic controller. The one who flags down the beer guy. The one who inspects the poon walking into his section. Grow a pair, dad. (via @Merredith). In NBA news, Steve Nash is headed to the Lakers, if you didn't hear. Here's how a guy with only 4,200 Twitter followers got 3,500 RTs out of the news. Insane. Let's get rolling!
Ever since professionals were allowed to play in the Olympics in 1992, the United States has been a force to be reckoned with. Well, other than the debacle in 2004. Did we really expect a team coached by Larry Brown and led by Allen Iverson to handle the Olympics well? That year aside, the U.S. has done nothing but dominate, winning gold in 1992, 1996, 2000 & 2008. Hell yes the U.S. is going to London to drill punks from Spain & Tunisia JUMP!
For only $3000 dollars, you can buy this custom painted Oklahoma City Thunder car that has all of the player's faces on it. The car has James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, and Kendrick Perkins on it as well as a window on the driver's side that doesn't work. It's only got 125,000 miles on it and can be purchased on Craigslist. The car may have been worth a lot more if the Thunder were able to knock out the Miami Heat. JUMP!
David Stern, last night, was booed unmercifully from the minute he walked onto the stage all the way through the first round. The Jersey/NYC bros treated Stern like a corrupt, third-world dictator. After about two hours of harassment, we thought Stern was done bathing in the hate, but we were oh-so-wrong. Twitter came through once again and all the idiots came out of the woodwork to let the world know how they feel about the evil commish!
Via: A Deerfield Beach couple was arrested after they allegedly used fake media credentials to get into the press section of Game 4 of the NBA Finals. James Kauff, 60, and his wife Ruth Kauff, 52, were stopped by security at a ticket checkpoint inside the arena during the game on Tuesday of last week, according to Miami Police. They each had a fraudulent pass that said “Media Miami Heat” and had their photo pasted on it, the Sun Sentinel reported.
That NBA Draft was a crazy good time, right? Could it get any more boring? And, where are all the foreigners? How is it possible the modern NBA Draft goes all the way into the 2nd round before a Euro was picked? The big news: 6 John Calipari players drafted. Ho-hum. In other NBA Draft news, Metta World Peace last night went nuts on Twitter over trade rumors. Our favorite: Metta traded for 15 7-11 Slurpies. Hilarious! Let's get rolling!
It's the biggest mystery of the 2012 NBA Draft: Who is Tyler Zeller's girlfriend? We've scoured Google, Twitter, MySpace, etc. and can't come up with a name. In 2012, how is that even possible? Shouldn't this concern the Cleveland Cavaliers (his new team) that Zeller is so secretive that he doesn't even reveal his girlfriend until the Draft? One of you has a name to drop on us. Facebook photos too much to ask tonight? JUMP!
Now it makes sense why Landry Fields couldn't make a damn jump shot last season for the Knicks. The guy probably couldn't stop think about his girlfriend. Elaine Alden, his model girlfriend, is all about Twitpics and posted a gem earlier today. She's stupid hot and she knows it. After going through her library of twitpics, we pulled the best of the best...65 to be exact.JUMP!
Maybe you heard the big news from the Supreme Court about Obamacare. Of course we're not here to get into the new health care law that was ruled constitutional (yes, there was the tax language; blah, blah, blah) by the court. It's much more fun when athletes try to show off their political science skills on Twitter. Today's combatants are: Raiders 3rd string QB Terrelle Pryor vs. 76ers 7-footer Spencer Hawes. DEBATE! JUMP!
The 2012 NBA Draft kicks off tonight at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN. We have all read countless reports and mock drafts so to break up that monotony, we took this post in a different direction...the worst suits in NBA Draft history. Many of these young players aren't used to the limelight and attention that is coming their way so oftentimes they make some questionable wardrobe choices. Some guys look like butlers, some look like they're going to prom and some just look like total ass-clowns. JUMP!
The wait is over gentlemen. We have finally received some details on Sarah Jay and Angelina Castro's BJ bonanza. Although the exact whereabouts are still TBD, we have a date...August 2. We do know it is going to be somewhere in Miami, so if you have any desire to experience all that Sarah and Angelina's mouths have to offer, start finalizing up your travel plans. Twitter is abuzz and their followers are going to show up (by the thousands!?). Will you be there? JUMP!
Looks like Greg Oden is putting his new found free time to good use! Multiple reports are surfacing that Oden has returned to his alma mater, Ohio State, and enrolled in some economics/math classes. The guy who has only played in 82 games throughout his career is putting two and two together and realizing that this basketball thing might not work out. JUMP!
Last week the fine folks at Samsung invited us to one of their NYC soirees for the Samsung Galaxy SIII. It just happened that in attendance were Steve Nash, Walt Frazier, Bill Walton, Kevin Love and Steph Curry. Of course the name that stuck out to us was Nash because we've been jonesing to interview this guy about his days with the frosted tips and if he had better hair than Dirk Nowitzki. Oh, we also asked Clyde Frazier about his suits. Fun was had by all - JUMP!
In case you didn't hear, the 2012 NBA Draft is Thursday at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. Basketball fans are excited for a new, young crop of talent to enter the league, but BC could theoretically care less about a bunch of one-and-dones from Kentucky. You're telling us that twig Anthony Davis will be able to bang with Dwight Howard for rebounds? Wait, he's going to play shutdown defense on Kobe? Shall we keep going? Let's just worry about the girlfriends hitting the lottery. JUMP!
BC's favorite Miami Heat fans, #TeamBJNBA members Angelina Castro and Sarah Jay, were all over Twitter this morning. They have been kind of mum on when the BJs will begin, but they did drop the news that they are in New York City. Of course NYC followers thought this meant the BJ bonanza was about to go down in the Big Apple. No dice, New Yorkers. You better get a plane ticket. JUMP
In case you weren't watching the Heat celebration bash at American Airlines Arena, you missed this guy who was actually introduced and allowed to fist bump the Larry O'Brien. Biggin' has to be some sort of nephew or son of Mickey Arison. Biggin' was also spotted riding in one of the double-decker buses. One of you Heat bangwagoneers knows his name. Share it with us: email@example.com
Amar'e Stoudemire (@Amereisreal) who plays for the New York Knicks was not happy with a fan (@BFerrelli) that told him he needed to step his game up next season. In fact, he told that fan "F&%k you. I don't have to do any thing fag,". Probably not the best choice of words for the Knicks superstar. It seems like social media may destroy more careers than all of the drugs, girls, and money in the world. It may be best to leave Amar'e alone on Twitter for a few days. HT Mengus22 JUMP!
How crazy did sh*t get for Miami Heat fans as LeBron was about to get his first ring? So crazy that some guy went nuts when his wife accused him of shady business with Game 5 ticket sales. Bradley Wasserman's wife got all bent out of shape when she thought he was using ticket sales proceeds to go gambling. He took offense and allegedly drilled her in the face with his gun. Oh, & there's more from Bradley. JUMP!
Heat fans went wild last night! Or did they? This looks like the lamest championship celebration BC has ever seen. Sure, not everyone could fork up the rumored $1000 cover charge to get into the official post-game party, but there has to have been better options than this. It is Miami, there are other bars/clubs than just LIV. The street celebration has to get old after like 15 minutes, especially when all that is going on is Heat chants and break dancing. Enter beer belly guy. JUMP!
You knew it was coming. The LeBron haters were going to be in full force after his NBA Finals victory and they took to Twitter to alleviate their frustrations. It's no surprise that we're not the biggest fans of LeBron at BC, but we aren't out there wishing death upon him. These people need to come down to earth and realize that the best player in the NBA was bound to get a title one day. JUMP for some of the most vicious/funny/inappropriate tweets to The King.
Nope, never thought we'd be setting Miami Heat championship bar tab gambling lines, but that's exactly what happened last night on Twitter. A simple tweet suggesting the Heat would ring up at least a $147,000 bar tab at Club LIV turned into an actual bet thanks to our friends at SportsInteraction.com. Still not following @bustedcoverage? You guys are missing all the fun. JUMP!
