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!
Gonna make this one short because it's Monday, it's getting late and my ass spent most of the weekend entertaining you guys because Screencapper Matt decided to work for like 2 hours each day. Anyway, here are the 3 Biggest Douchebags At Game Two Of The Knicks-Heat Series. You'd get more than three but, again, I'm tired and not really in the mood to expand this to four or five douchebags. Cool? JUMP!
Now, before you start screaming that this is just some stupid wild rumor and no human would put $1.8 million on a first-round NBA game, realize that Floyd Mayweather's track record speaks for itself. For example, Money has bet $150,000 on the Little Caesars Bowl. But what's odd about this tweet last night from Twitter sports badboy Incarcerated Bob is that Floyd isn't known to brag about his bets until they're winners. Think he was sweating down 21? JUMP!
Know why we love our readers? Guys like Jason B. are sitting on their asses on a Sunday afternoon watching the Utah vs. San Antonio game and sending us screencaps of bullshit like this from ESPN. How does shit like this happen? It's the weekend, people are hungover and some smartass intern figures nobody is watching this game so he'll slip in a Phoenix victory. Guess who's not in the playoffs? Phoenix. Now, don't mind us, we're heading off to watch our 60 Minutes DVR.
This is why you never leave your star players on the court when the game is in hand. Derrick Rose went down with an injury to what looked like his knee after falling awkwardly on it. The Chicago Bulls took on the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs where the Bulls pulled out the win. We'll see if Derrick Rose is able to return for Game 2 or if this will effect this series or series to come. HT Deadspin JUMP!
The NBA Playoffs get started Saturday with the 76ers traveling to Chicago for a 1:30 tip against the Bulls, followed by the Knicks playing in Miami against the odds-on-favorite to win the 2012 NBA Championship. Pregame.com has Lebron and the Heat as 2/1 favorites and Chicago as 4/1 to win it all. This also marks a cheerleading milestone for certain units. How about the Los Angeles Clippers dance team finally working into May, a first since '05-06. JUMP!
Newspaper reporters keep driving us nuts. They're always burying the lede. Take this story about a local Michigan athletic director leading cops on a drunken 120 m.p.h. police chase. Blah, blah, blah...AND THEN THEY TELL US HOMEBOY WAS DRUNK AFTER BOOZING & WATCHING THE WOMEN'S NCAA TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP! Biggest embarrassment ever? JUMP!
The last time Busted Coverage's star interviewer Joseph Student sat down with a Playboy Playmate he caused drama in Denver via Leola Bell's comments about loving Tebow. The magazine enjoyed our interview so much that BC got a mention in the April issue. Anyway, Student sat down today with Miss May Nikki Leigh & jumped straight into his classic line of questioning. Let's just say that Ms. Leigh begged us to help her meet Blake Griffin. JUMP!
Here's what is hard to figure out with hot chicks. Why don't they call each other out for jumping on NBA bandwagons? Guys would give each other sh*t for years if one of your buddies rooted for the Nets and suddenly became a Mavs fan during the NBA Finals. But hot chicks don't operate in this fashion. It's as if they don't care about loyalty. And it's just understood. Chick code. For example, we now learn that Arianny Celeste has climbed on the Lebron bandwagon. JUMP!
What exactly do they feed women in the SEC that makes them turn into either an NBA dancer or a boutique owner in a Dallas galleria? And they're all blonde. It's as if the Gods figured that women in the south would be good at three things: Shakin' it for NBA fans, selling fat women clothes they shouldn't be wearing and being hot trophy wives. It's an amazing world God has created. Take Mavs dancer Meghan. She's already an all star at two of the three. JUMP!
Our old friend Molly Sullivan has finally landed a big time East Coast job where sideline reporters become noticed instead of languishing in Las Vegas. We happened to be in the same Playboy fantasy football league with Molly last season with plenty of other C-listers. Little did we know that Meridith Marakovits would get called up to the YES Network & the 76ers would have a sideline opening. One thing leads to another and Molly gets the CSN job. Philly is on notice. JUMP!
What the f*ck is going on with the sports world? Are we running out of filler for the 24-hour news cycle? Dropping espionage and _____-gate makes us feel like a Walter Cronkite hologram will show up after a commercial & kick Neil Everett's ass. Jesus! Can't we get a fake Steve Phillips press conference about Albert Pujols being homerless? In NHL news, the Rangers force a Game 7 while Gary Bettman battles the shits over the Blackhawks being eliminated. Let's get rolling!
The Los Angeles Lakers took on the Oklahoma City Thunder today where some 'extracurricular' activity happened during the game. Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, elbowed James Harden in the face in completely violent fashion. Of course, Metta World Peace pretended like nothing happened while Harden layed on the ground in obvious pain. I'm sure David Stern is going to take a look at this play and possible hand out some punishments. JUMP!
Miami Heat president Pat Riley just sold his 80,000 square foot mansion for $16.75 million dollars. Not only does it overlook beautiful Biscayne Bay but it has one of the most unbelievable pools we've ever seen. This two story house is basically perfect for a guy. Not only does it come with a 103 inch plasma television, but it has it's own private beach with sand. JUMP!
And the 99 Problems jerseys just keep rolling in. We asked for submissions a few weeks ago and look what was in the inbox this morning. Indy backwards hat 99 Problems d-bag. Fact: you should never rock this look in an Indianapolis sports bar unless you have a "Ain't 1" bitch rolling with you through Dave & Busters, or wherever Indy watches games. Just sayin'. In MLB news, you MUST look at the NY Post front page. MUST, DAMMIT! Let's get rolling!
The Orlando Magic are a complete mess heading into the playoffs so the logical move from us to ease the pain for fans is to dig into the lovely dance team and pick out a favorite. Asher went digging and came up with former Florida State cheerleader Jessica. She's part Italian/Irish/German, which seems to be the perfect combination to creating the hottest NBA dancers. JUMP!
So we kinda got into it last night with Auburn nation over the Charles Barkley with greasy redneck Auburn bros during rodeo weekend photo. We thought Auburn fans/students were honored to be called greasy rednecks. Maybe coming from a Yankee it was an insult. Just reporting what we see. And the guys with Barkley look like their clothes could use a wash. Anyway, Chuck also took time out of his night for picture time with this lass. JUMP!
This past weekend just happened to be Auburn rodeo weekend, the annual frat party put on by the Alpha Psi brothers. The event is known for (A.) Booze, (B.) Dirty jorts, (C.) Daisy dukes, (D.) Rednecks. Just happened that Charles Barkley was in town and at some bar where some greasy Auburn bros stopped the Round Mound of Rebound for a photo op. Typical celebrities would brush off the dirtbags and tell them to get a shower. Not Barkley. JUMP!
Ahh, that time of year when we unleash Asher on NBA dancer Facebook and Twitter accounts. The guy is under strict orders to start building a database of the hottest cheerleaders who'll be shaking it during the playoffs. Drunk photos will result in a pay raise. Drunk photos with Mark Cuban will result in a $25 bonus. Drunk photos with Shaq & Darius Miles makin' it rain on said cheerleader is worth $100. No drunk photos today. Just Heat dancer Sophie who is from Singapore. JUMP!
And you guys thought we only picked on ESPN interns. Look, you screw up a sports graphic that's running on live TV and BC is coming after you, especially when it's as easy as spelling C-E-L-T-I-C-S. Here we have Sager doing his thing with Doc Rivers during tonight's Cel-tics-Knicks game. Kinda disappointed in Sager's coat choice. Too reserved. Knicks led 43-28 at last glance. Hope the TNT intern enjoys his/her last night on the job. (HT: @jose3030)
Yeah, we're fully aware that the other Internet outlets that cover athlete pads had this one last week. However, not a single site (Business Insider, Chicago Tribune, Curbed, etc.) called out Kyle Korver for what has to be the worst game room in athlete house history. Korver is about to sell this 16-room, suburban Chicago mansion for $1.475 million. He paid $1.38. Yep, housing is coming back! Blah, blah, blah. Now, let's rip on Korver's game room. JUMP!
Herewego! You know what basketball league we watch when the NBA gets too boring with yet another night of 58 pick and roll plays? Um, the Barbados Basketball League. You might remember in 2011 when one game turned into a brawl when a player landed a running drop kick on a point guard. If that wasn't cool enough, things got nuts Saturday night when things got crazy again. Fists, feet, and even a dude swinging a chair! It's all here! JUMP!
This graphics fail could have been a career ender for the intern working a SportsCenter Saturday shift. Look down at your keyboard and realize where the 'u' and the 'i' are located. Would've been the ESPN Intern Fail To End All Fails. Anyway, if you have time, tune in for some Rockets vs. Nuggers later this evening. In MLB news, could this be the end of Giants' closer Brian Wilson as we knew him? "Structural issues" in his pitching elbow. Let's get rolling!
First of all, damn that's an ugly baby. Let's not kid ourselves here. Not all babies are little balls of cuteness. Go to a Walmart in Knoxville, Tennessee. Near the airport. Guarantee you'll see ugly babies in that joint. Just little freak shows puking and shitting on themselves. We were there for Georgia-Tennessee in the fall and couldn't believe the little bastards these people create. Mutants. Anyway, here is Pacers mom diggin' it out last night. JUMP!
Maybe you heard the news about the Cleveland Cavaliers mascot, Moondog, suffering an eye injury last night while horsing around with the Indiana Pacers David West. This was just the kind of news that jostled our brain and reminded us that the team used to have the horniest mascot in the NBA. A quick check of Moondog's Flickr page showed us that nothing has changed. The (we're 99.9% certain it's a guy) mascot is still grinding on the ladies. JUMP!
