Someone in the 407 (Orlando) texted this screencap to us last night. "Did they change the points awarded for a free throw," the capper asked. Our first question has to be how three even got into the mix to begin with. Try saying "Free Three Throws" like 10 times & I guarantee your ass will need a glass of water. Anyway, the Lakers "get back into the series," as the experts like to say, with a 99-96 W. The Lakers were 41-of-42 from the line & Kobe was 18-of-18. Let's get rolling!
We wind down the week with this from San Antonio Spurs fan via @calebjsaenz. Of course San Antonio is the last place we'd expect to see a personalized DJ Kevin 69 jersey. This is something you'd expect from Philadelphia Flyers fan. Or Blackhawks fan. But in the NBA? Dude must get laid more than Peter North with this kind of game. That's it, we're out of here for the night. Remember to get really, really drunk and send pics. - BC
Just a random search this morning for what Mark Cuban is up to these days turned up the billionaire Mavs owner at some restaurant called Blowfish and his hand on the neck of some blonde. Normally this wouldn't be worthy of a post, but then the guy goes and makes a pucker face. BOOM, instant post. Could totally care less about the blonde. Obviously cute and motorboat worthy. The big news here is that we can add a new pic to our growing Mark Cuban photo gallery. JUMP!
This guy @BrentMills seems to be an OKC Thunder fan, according to his Twitter wallpaper. Would he trade the Pacers cashing an NBA title-winning ticket over the Thunder winning a championship? Is $2,250 worth it? Shall see. The guy also has $150 on the Thunder at 4/1. Obviously not quite the same payoff. In NHL news, the L.A. Kings continued to roll in the Western Conference Finals. With a 3-0 lead, this one is all but wrapped up. Let's get rolling!
That's Lance Stephenson. He's a Pacers scrub that doesn't play for the Pacers. Yet, there he was making a choking gesture after LeBron missed a free throw in the 3rd quarter. Guess who is now down 2-1 and can't score 80+ in an NBA playoff game? The Heat. Guess which bench is dominant in this series? It wasn't a terrible performance from LeBron. He was 1-of-3 from the line and 10-of-22 from the field. Still, he's a fun punching bag.
Nothing is more exciting than the final two minutes of an NBA playoff game, especially when that game includes Kobe Bryant. But when Kobe doesn't take the final shot and some white guy named Steve Blake does, Twitter goes absolutely nuts. Sure, Blake taking a three in the 2nd quarter is no big deal. However, it's a HUGE deal when the Lakers are down 1-0 to OKC. Of course you know what happened last night. Blake missed & black guys on Twitter went HAM. JUMP!
Someone let us know what TV station ran this World Peace "Lakers Idiot" caption during
last night's sportscast. This comes in via @Ten_Foot_Midget, who isn't known to Photoshop screencaps. Sure looks like an iPhone flash on the right side of the screen. Stand up, TV station. Let yourself be congratulated. In other Lakers news, Kobe's team is down 2-0. Hope you didn't have the OVER. 77-75 final. Why'd the Lakers lose? 13% from 3-point range. Let's get rolling!
Jimmer Fredette and Whitney Wonnacott will finally get married June 1 (yes, it's a Friday) at the Denver LDS Temple. You know what that means for these two in June: steamy sex. It also means that we went searching for a wedding gift to send the lovely couple. Jimmer might make $2.3 million a year, but that didn't stop him and Whit from registering at Bed, Bath & Beyond and Williams-Sonoma. We're thinking of buying the $10 can opener. JUMP!
Hmm, so the Miami Heat only have two guys who can score. What about guys you trust to make free throws down the stretch? LeBron and Wade, right? Guess who missed two free throws with :54 left on the clock. Blah, blah, blah. Meanwhile, we were trying to figure out what the hell Bears fan was doing in the middle of a white out. And what's up with the coat? A black guy cold in Miami – in mid-May? In NHL news, the Kings get another W. Let's get rolling!
The athlete housing market had slowed to a trickle over the past seven days or so until Jazz guard Devin Harris went and listed his 7400 sq. ft. Dallas mansion for $2.1 million. Remember Harris? He had the four seasons in Dallas before being traded to the Nets in the Jason Kidd deal. During Harris' time in the Big D he bought this giant house. What do you get in this deal? Lots, and we mean massive amounts, of stone. And pools of water. JUMP!
Looking to get a Kobe Bryant cut and airbrush in the back of you hair for Game 2 of the NBA Playoffs? Get down to Marcus Hatch's shop ASAP. The only problem is that you'll need to head to El Paso, Texas where Hatch runs MP's Cutt. He caught our attention last night via some of his Kobe pieces that have been tweeted out. You live near El Paso and your kid is getting picked on lately? Get his head turned into a Kobe piece of art. His struggles will be over. JUMP!
Asher is all over the NBA dancers lately for two reasons: (1.) The guy is in love with cheerleaders. Like thinks about them pretty much every day and (2.) He's on the hunt for the NBA dancer with the craziest college major. Today he makes a return trip to Oklahoma City to visit with Alexis. Her major: Chemistry. Not going to find one of those on the Lakers Girls. Once again, this is just how they roll in OKC. JUMP!
Don't mind NBC L.A., they're just confused on which Kings team is in the NHL playoffs. Can you blame them? Kings hockey hasn't been in the news this much in 20 years. Of course confusing the Sacramento Kings and the Los Angeles Kings officially cost a USC intern his/her career at NBC. Over. In NBA news, the Thunder thumped the Lakers, 119-90, and gave us this great front page photo of James Harden in The Oklahoman. Let's get rolling!
A Stephon Marbury statue was unveiled on the lawn of the MasterCard Center where the Beijing Ducks won their first ever CBA championship. If it wasn't weird enough that China has a Stephon Marbury statue then guess who gave the commencement speech? Dennis Rodman. Why did Dennis Rodman give the commencement speech? We have absolutely no idea. JUMP!
Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics thought it would be a good idea to try an alley oop to his teammate who was ahead of the defense. Well, Ryan Hollins, was not prepared for the alley oop but went up for it anyways. He ended up catching the ball, missing the dunk, and landing flat on his ass. It's just good television. The Boston Celtics lead the Philadelphia 76ers 1 to nothing in the NBA Playoffs. JUMP!
Future NBA player and former University of Kentucky Wildcat player Anthony Davis was seen at a local fast food restaurant operating the fryers. Davis is expecting to go as the first pick in the NBA Draft and make insane amounts of money. The unibrowed phenom showed off his wingspan while stretching over about 10 fryers. This could be his back up plan in case he is forced to play for Michael Jordan. HT Kentucky Sports Radio JUMP!
FINALLY! You guys realize the first round of the NBA Playoffs has taken like 27 days. Seriously, longer than a Kim Kardashian wedding. We'll finally end the madness with the Lakers tonight & the Clippers on Sunday thanks to the Grizzlies getting a road win last night, 90-88. In NFL news, Vince Young has found another job, this time with the Bills. As a friend told me, VY is going to hate life in Buffalo during the winter. Won't be able to go shirtless. Let's get rolling!
Would you blame Craig Sager if he was poon hunting during the NBA playoffs. Like (ex) porn star poon hunting? Not us. We're HUGE supporters of Sager chasing any poon, let alone white poon that used to perform in black dude videos. This one pretty much has it all. Porn. NBA. Intrigue. Sager. Playoffs. Big question from us: Does Craig Sager have road beef in each NBA city? JUMP!
Looks like the Oklahoma City Thunder will be looking for a new public address announcer for the second round of the NBA playoffs. Jim Miller, a high school teacher & the arena voice of Thunder basketball, was arrested last night for lewd or indecent acts with a child under 16. We have the arrest affidavit & it's not good for Jimbo. Seems that the guy has an Internet porn and masturbating problem. JUMP!
It's all good, though, Kobe has this one under control. Headed home for Game 7. Saturday night in L.A. Gotta figure Pau Gasol will shoot better than 1-of-10 from the field and that someone off the bench will step up. Oh, the poor Lakers. What seems to be the problem? Andrew Bynum & Gasol are giant pussies and Kobe knows it. In sad NFL news, 60,000 are expected to attend a public tribute to Junior Seau tonight at Jack Murphy. Let's get rolling!
This popped up on Twitter this morning. According to a salesman (@JPwithanaccent) at Karl Malone Toyota: Karl Malone's Tundra is for sale. Specially equipped for hunting and outdoors and has less than 10,000 miles. Hmm, looking at that bed, doesn't look like you can get a dead bear into that ride. Will effort the salesman to get an estimate on how many dead animals it'll hold. Figure on a response in the morning.
Asher has spent the better part of three weeks investigating the Clippers dance team. His mission? Find the chick with the craziest career goals. That led to Katrina, just another hot chick using her dance career to get into the nursing field. Or that's just what she tells her parents. Nursing seems like a giant waste of time when she could just marry right into millions and not have to waste time wiping down old dude asses. Her call, though. JUMP!
You might remember last summer when BC blasted the Indianapolis Colts for shooting a bikini calendar along the banks of the Ohio River – driftwood, tires, sludge and all. It was easily the worst locale for a bikini calendar shoot in our years of doing this gig. Then, last week while perusing the Oklahoma City Thunder dancers photo galleries, we happened upon the 2nd worst bikini calendar locale. Some river bed in the middle of BFE, Oklahoma. JUMP!
Solid effort from Green Mask Bro at last night's Clippers-Memphis game. Of course we're tired of all the suits sitting courtside with their implanted arm candy. It's about time some 'normal' guy wearing a green mask and Empire Strikes Back shirt can score courtsides. Only bad news here for Grizz fans? They're still down 3-2. As for how the NY Post handled the Knicks elimination story, the paper ran this Flame Out headline on the back cover. Let's get rolling!
Deadspin has a piece today on how OSU tell-all walk-on journo Mark Titus is rapping about how Greg Oden became an alcoholic, was offered work in the porn world and had to be dragged out of his house after the dong photos ended up on the Internet. Someone get Titus a full-time ESPN gig – stat. Anyway, Oden's life and times are well documented on BC. He's now so down-and-out that trips to NYC include stops at the meat missile cart. JUMP!
First of all, solid offensive performance by the 76ers last night against the Bulls in Game 5. 32% from the field, 70% from the line and 69 points. Evan Turner's line: 2-of-7, 4 TO & 4 points. It almost seemed like something was bothering him. Poor, poor night for Philly as a whole. The 76ers lose, the Flyers get knocked out of the NHL playoffs & the Phillies lose to the Mets, giving them last place in East. Let's get rolling!
BC reader Shawn C. sent an email this afternoon announcing that his Oklahoma City Thunder beer pong table is ready to debut on the Internet. This isn't just another beer pong table, according to Shawn. "I built an OKC Thunder Beer Pong Table with an Automatic Ball Washer, LED Lights, 5 speakers and a 10in Sub. It is all parts ridiculous, but was a pretty fun build." Did he just say automatic ball washer? JUMP!
Anything worse than being pressured into going to a stupid parade with the GF/wife/lesbian lover and sitting there without any poon to peruse? The chick clowns are always old hags who plays Bozo's wife on weekends and fire candy at your face. The National Cherry Blossom Festival this year changed parades forever, in our minds, via the inclusion of the Washington Wizards and Redskins cheerleaders. It was pretty much a huge butt-off between the ladies. JUMP!
Why do we want the Atlanta Hawks to prolong their home season as long as possible, even though they're down 3-1 against the Celtics in the NBA playoffs? Simple answer: Crystal Hopkins. She's one of the team's dancers & BC Cheerleader Stalker Asher put the pieces together on this 23-year-old who also has dreams of being a country singer. Did we mention the great rack and her dancing ability? God, please let the Celtics fold and the Hawks advance. JUMP!
After the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Dallas Mavericks, Russell Westbrook was asked some questions by reporter Johnathon Tjarks. Tjarks, who works for RealGM.com, asked Westbrook if he would consider James Harden a maximum contract player. Westbrook dodged the question and responded to Tjarks with a "No more questions for you bro". Video after the JUMP!
Chris Paul brought his son to the post game press conference after the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Memphis Grizzlies. Chris was discussing a specific part of the game and asked his son to imitate Blake Griffin's game face. The kid did a spot on imitation of it and the crowd loved it. Thanks kid for creating a meme for us. The LA Clippers lead the series 2-1 against the Memphis Grizzlies. JUMP!
Is this some sort of fake Lakers fan that the Nuggets placed behind the basket for last night's game? That's the only excuse for some dirtbag picking her nose while Kobe is trying to sink a free throw while the Lakers are getting drilled. As for the game, the Nugs got a victory, making the series 2-1 L.A. Just another warning this morning, Erin Andrews says her Derby hat this year will be simple. Lots of flowers. Sad to hear there will be no more giant saucers. Let's get rolling!
We have boots on the ground in Denver this weekend for the Nuggets-Lakers series and they tell us Kobe Bryant might have pulled a Kobe move last night at the Tilted Kilt. Our ESPN TV sources tell us that the divorced Bryant had a particular problem with the waitresses at the notoriously busty brew pub. What was Kobe's issue with the waitresses? JUMP!
Everyone was going nuts last night about Marc Gasol getting two in the stink during the Grizzlies-Clippers game. Of course the emails rolled in this morning. "Why are you guys late on the Gasol video?" Sorry, woke up a little foggy this morning after a Wednesday night bender in NYC. That meant lots of whiskey and like 5 hours of sleep. Anyway, Gasol got fingered and the Internet went nuts. Ho-hum. JUMP!
Keep your eyes on the Chris Kaman Twitter account the next couple of days. Ted Nugent's love child packed up his ass kickin' trucks today and is heading back to Michigan where he'll spend the next few months blowing up sh*t and digging piles of dirt. Not kidding, the exploits of Kaman in Michigan are well documented. You should see these rides he's taking back. Suck it, gas mileage. You're dead to Kaman. JUMP!
Poor Derrick Rose. It's bad enough to have a blown out ACL, meaning you'll miss the Eastern Conference Finals against Bron Bron. But then the Bulls go and throw you into an empty suite. As of this writing the Bulls have a 53-45 lead. I'm on a 6 a.m. flight right now so you can go watch SportsCenter to get the final score. In fishing news, do you need some extra cash & live in Washington/Oregon? Go fishing & get paid. Let's get rolling!
