Danny Hermosillo, who goes by @jdannyh5, says he met and shook Mark Cuban's hand last week at Disneyland. Danny is a Dodgers fan, sports exactly 100 followers and seems to be a nice guy. That's not the story here. The i-Team has its sights set on the photo Danny uploaded of Cuban enjoying his day at the park. Mark and the family. A stroll. In those shorts. Wait! What? Jorts? JUMP!
What do you do when you get shipped from a city you have called home for eight years? Sell your $4.5 million mansion of course! Joe Johnson, now in Brooklyn, is looking to unload his Atlanta home. Can't imagine he's feeling too much pressure to get this beast off his hands, as he's due to make nearly $20 million this season...and over $20 million each season until 2015-16. Have $4.5 million sitting around? JUMP!
Rob Gronkowski starts getting serious about football and we move over to keeping tabs on everyone's favorite 7-foot #1 NBA draft pick bust, Greg Oden. The prerequisite to get our attention on a daily basis includes: you must drink, wear crazy pants and enjoy posing for photos with hot and/or ugly chicks because it's funny. Enter Oden on Friday at a golf tourney honoring his dead buddy, Travis Smith. JUMP!
France's Nicholas Batum seems to have lost the Olympic spirit near the end of today's loss to Spain because how else can you explain a guy drilling an opponent in the nuts? Never heard of Batum? The guy is only going to make $46 million over the next four years playing for the Portland Trail Blazers. Something tells us David Stern won't be happy when he wakes up from his nap and hears about this on Twitter. GIF - JUMP!
Remember that insane twitpic sent out back in June? The one that had Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice in a tiny white bikini. Well that same Stephanie Rice is now being linked to Kobe Bryant and the two just may be dating! According to a photo Rice tweeted in late July, the two met then and have been in contact since then. Fast-forward a few weeks and the two have been spotted multiple times since the games began in London. JUMP!
Nope, count me out when it comes time to get stretched out by this Argentinian trainer. You straddle me in front of the world and that's the final straw. Done. Would quit the team on the spot. Here is your TV schedule for Day 11 of the Olympics. It's the final night of gymnastics so make some extra popcorn. Don't miss the women's javelin this morning. It's going on right now - results. It'll be your only chance to watch Leryn Franco throw. Let's get rolling!
And here you thought hoochies wouldn't care about Greg Oden now that his NBA career is finished. Ahh, but the 7-footer made over $23,000,000 in his career and, from all indications, has plenty of spare bills to throw around. Sure, his agent got a cut. The government got its share. I'm sure there were a couple bad house deals in Portland. Maybe a sports car or two that were spur-of-the-moment mistakes. Hoochies, however, can sniff those bills. JUMP!
Tom Crean made sure to clear the air about this tweet by saying that he's been thinking about a recruit. This isn't - you know - a tweet to some road beef. "Sorry. That was to a new recruit. Wish I could tell you who. Sent it by mistake. Don't panic. Lol(.)" The IU coach added, "My wife and daughter are laughing at my lack of ability to use technology." Nice excuse, Crean. Does the recruit have long legs, a full C-cup and blonde hair? (@TomCrean)
There has been quite the controversy surrounding Team USA and their uniforms. Ralph Lauren and his team designed these threads and...how do we put it? They are pretty much the douchiest outfits we've ever seen. Every American athlete will have to rock these uniforms, berets and all, during Friday's opening ceremonies. It's great seeing photos popping up of athletes trying on the outfits, best one yet has been Anthony Davis. Unibrow is rocking the beret with pride! JUMP!
Team USA has been handling their business in tune-up games leading up to the Olympics. With the exception, of the Argentina game, each victory has been a cakewalk. However the team looks like it is trying to catch as much rest as possible, especially on the plane. Kevin Love snapped an epic Instagram pic of six of his teammates and head coach Mike Krzyzewski passed out en route to London. Impressive ability to catch all seven guys out cold. JUMP!
Gilbert, Gilbert, Gilbert. Where to begin. Back in '08 he was wrapping up the prime of his career. Arenas got on his high horse, started dropping millions into this place and before he knew it, it was 2012 and he was struggling to find an NBA team. That's about the time these morons realize that million dollar pool might not have been the best "investment". At only $3.5 million this beauty could be yours! JUMP!
Never would've guessed Karl Malone would sell his ass kickin' Toyota Tundra so that he could get better gas mileage with a Scion iQ. Wait, this tiny car gets great gas mileage, right? Try 36/city & 37 on the highway. And 6-9 power forwards don't exactly fit very well, according to this test at his Scion dealership. Get this, the specs on this ride claims you can get four people in the iQ. Seriously, says so right here. JUMP!
Just think how many hours it took some guy (because this is something that guys waste time working on) to create this LeBron James Gmail account screencap. HOURS! Sure, once you have the Gmail fonts it comes down to creativity. And this creative guy even created a great Google email ad for LeBron's account. Our favorite email on this screencap: that message from Pau Gasol. Full image - JUMP!
This guy is Tom Izzo and he coaches the Michigan State basketball team. Can you imagine him listening to the late Notorious B.I.G. (who is arguably one of the best rappers ever)? It's possible this was unintentional or just an amazing coincidence but it happened. Izzo was giving an interview and his quote was almost exactly the same as Biggie's line. Analysis after the JUMP!
If you are in the market for a massive luxury van then today is your lucky day. Current owners "John & Rosemary" have had enough of this vehicle and are trying to unload it to a lucky buyer. Yes, this tricked out van was formerly owned by Shaq himself...as if the masive Superman logo on the grill wasn't enough of a hint. Shaq was ahead of the curve when he decided to sell this beast. JUMP!
We love athlete houses with killer pools. Love 'em. Would buy one if this blog ever gets snapped up by a giant media company. Sure, Coed Media Group is cool and all, but our asses aren't going to be sitting next to one of these pools until Coed is snapped up. When that day comes, my ass is relocating to Southlake, TX where BC HQ will be at LaMarcus Aldridge's pad. Look at that pool. LOOK AT IT! So pretty.
Anderson Varejao is a complete d-bag. Always has been, always will be. Take last night, for example. The guy walks into a Brazil-USA friendly and acts like a complete jagoff, fouling guys like it's Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Of course Americans on Twitter were pissed off with a guy slamming bodies and acting like he's about to put a gold medal around his neck. Complete dick moves, Varejao. JUMP!
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!
