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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
The Miami Heat won. LeBron James got his first ring. Blah, blah, blah. What was first on our minds as the final buzzer went off last night was whether or not the ladies of #TeamBJNBA were going to stay true to their word. After a little bit of partying Angelina Castro and Sarah Jay quickly put any worry to rest, letting us know that the BJ train is going to run according to schedule. Details need to be ironed out, but don't worry fellas, there will be BJs...lots of BJs. JUMP!
Let's be honest here, LeBron James celebrating his first NBA title at Club LIV this morning with LMFAO is about as bad as it gets in the celebration category. There were no Ace of Spades bottles that we know of. No massive speeches from the King. No giant bar bills (more on that later this morning). Just LeBron rapping with the douchiest club group of the 21st century. JUMP!
Here is your Miami Herald front page this morning with its 'Reign Begins' headline. This might be the worst hometown A1 championship celebration design we've seen in multiple years. You're only going four columns wide on LeBron's first ring? Weak. In other Heat news, LMFAO just happened to be in Miami for the celebration party at LIV. Yes, LeBron rapped with LMFAO. Yes, that will be a major story today. Yes, we'll pile on. Let's get rolling!
In case you were watching the College World Series and didn't realize the Heat & Thunder played Game 5 tonight, word on the streets in Miami is that Bron Bron got his first ring via a blowout. Maybe you missed this tweet from Terrelle Pryor. It's one that'll warm the heart of anyone who has sports rooting interests in the Buckeye State. Sweet dreams, Ohio. See you in the morning.
BC broke the news earlier today that Indianapolis cheerleader coach Megan Crafton was involved in some serious sh*t. By serious sh*t we mean a 17 year old boys private parts. She admitted to giving the student a BJ in a parking lot and is now facing legal action. Knowing the repercussion the online community was about to send her way, Crafton acted swiftly and deleted her Twitter. Turns out she wasn't quick enough! BC has secured some scandalous twitpics, JUMP!
In the market for a multi-million dollar house that is currently owned by a professional athlete and the house must have a cool pool? Sure you aren't, but it's not a crime to look. Maybe you work at Facebook and need a house near San Francisco? Barry Zito is trying to sell a mountainside retreat with what has to be the best pool view in athlete houses currently on the market: $11.45M. Looking for a grotto? You can buy Devin Harris' house: $2.1M. More - JUMP!
Yep, we have another chick in power taking advantage of high school boys. Indiana police say cheerleading coach Megan Crafton has admitted to performing oral on a 17-year-old basketball player during a January grocery store parking lot tryst. Yes, she admits to it. Does that lead have your attention? JUMP!
For those not in the know, Micky Arison owns the Miami Heat. He thought it would be funny last night to tweet out this shot of Dan Le Batard's huge (we assume) hairy ass during his hotel bodypaint session. Last shot of Dan's ass, we promise. In NBA news, the Heat are -3.5 tonight. Suggestion here is to jump all over that number. LeBron gets his first ring after the Thunder collapse late in the 4th. Heat win by seven and go straight to Club Liv. Let's get rolling!
We'll keep this one short because there's never a good reason for Dan Le Batard to be in a Speedo. So Le Batard and Charles Barkley had a bet during last year's NBA Finals. Barkley took Dallas. Le Batard took his home team. Loser would wear a Speedo. So here we are looking at Le Batard paying off his bet this afternoon during his ESPN 790 show. Someone has been drinking lite beer. Barely a fat roll over the suit. Impressive. JUMP!
If you haven't seen Dwyane Wade's glasses from last night's presser, well you're looking at 'em. Sad thing is, we used to really like Wade. However, his douche level is off the charts. These new glasses are entering into territory we haven't seen before with Wade. Flip downs? Are you serious? JUMP
Our friends at Deadspin brought to light this afternoon that Indiana Pacers goon Tyler Hansbrough had a solid weekend in Wrightsville Beach, N.C. The big news here is that Psycho T doesn't mind to brown bag his 40 oz-ers when hanging with fellow whities. A little more digging into Hansbrough's summer reveals that this guy has been slightly enjoying his free time. The Internet is slowly taking notice. JUMP!
