This comes from Tuesday's LSU-Auburn basketball game which was won by the Tigers, 65-58. Thankfully Dari Nowkhah didn't pop out his nuts & slap them against 'Dylan's' face. Nope, won't be an investigation here. As for a Rob Lowe update, his kids are giving him sh*t over the Peyton Manning retirement Twitter fiasco. As for the Indy Star, editors there didn't even write a story on the story. They used a USA Today wire story. Good work. Let's get rolling!
About an hour ago on American Idol we had the chance to meet Charlotte Bobcats dancer Brittany Kerr and hear her audition with Joss Stone's Spoiled. Brittany's soulful voice, ripped jeans and exposed belly helped her land a coveted ticket to Hollywood and we instantly have a full-fledged sports angle to this season of Idol. Kerr, currently on the dance team, had a viewing party tonight & things went fairly well. Yes-no-yes. JUMP!
Most of your celeb sites this week have been paying attention to Playboy Playmate Fracesca Frigo because she's obviously super hot, has a giant fake rack and is in a bikini while the rest of America freezes its ass off. But we dug deeper. Found a sports angle. Made Ms. Frigo relevant to you guys who like your women to have a sports angle. It seems Ms. August 2010 is a basketball fan and even owns a baseball hat of a certain NY team. JUMP!
Former Los Angeles Lakers center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was named U.S. Cultural Ambassador by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whom he towers over like he towers over most everyone else. Kareem looked somewhat befuddled when Clinton gave him a children's book after he gave her a Lakers jersey. Just another great moment in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar towering over short people. We've got a gallery. Check it!
Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade celebrated his 30th birthday over the weekend in Miami. It was a star-studded event. In addition to Wade's teammates stopping by, celebrities like Common, TI and Usher were in the house. Kelly Rowland serenaded Wade with Happy Birthday. Oh, and dude got a new McLaren MP4-12C, which retails for about $230,000. All in all, we'd say it was a pretty good birthday. Check it!
Received this one from at least 6-7 of you guys but Pete in Muskegon was quicker on the trigger. "Guaranteed winner in Vegas...tomorrow night," Pete wrote. Since it's not late February I'm not even sure if MSU is #9 or #19. Someone wake me in March. In other news this morning, the guy who invented inflatable shoes (sued the shit out of Reebok over Pump) and NFL's flak jacket, died over the weekend. Also, money pouring in on the Patriots. Let's get rolling!
This is not a Photoshop job. It's really three basketball players from Ole Miss in perfect positioning this weekend. One thing led to another and the blogosphere lost its shit over this because 93% of us are white & are always feeling inferior to black dudes in the dong market. Here's the Ole Miss roster. As for the NFL, the GMen are getting +2.5. Our best bet is N.E. -7.5. T.J. Yates had opportunities. Tom Brady won't throw the INTs. Let's get rolling!
Nice mustache Skylar MacBee. Do us all a favor and shave that horrendous facial hair off for the good of college basketball. The number 2 Kentucky Wildcats traveled to The Summitt to take on the Tennessee Volunteers. John Calipari got pissed off at one of his players, hot Tennessee cheerleaders, and a weird giant cardboard face all after the JUMP!
Via News 11 (Little Rock): Officers arrested the Physical Education teacher and Assistant Girl's Basketball Coach at Maumelle High School, just after she left campus Thursday morning. "We had gotten tips from people at the school that they believed she was doing drugs on campus," said Lt. Jim Hansard with Maumelle Police. Woah, woah, woah. Don't jump to conclusions, Jimbo. What makes you think Brit is a meth head? The eyes? The caved in face? Cops, sheesh.
The football season might be over but that just means that our guy, Asher, in charge of the Cheerleader of the Week turns his attention to basketball. As many of you know, the bigger NCAA schools have football cheerleaders, a separate basketball cheerleading unit and then a basketball dance team. Asher, ever the sleuth, has infiltrated the Alabama Crimson Cabaret to introduce you guys to Hart. Nope, not giving you freaks her last name. JUMP!
First of all, good luck to J.R. Smith's sister when she disappears in China & ends up handcuffed to a Nike factory chair where she'll be making Jordan Concords with just her left hand for 17¢/ day. What's this all about? Smith, a six-year NBA vet, went to China to play ball this year because there is massive cash to be made. He took his sister & girlfriend along for the adventure. Then last night sh*t hit the fan. His sister threw a bottle on the court and started brawling. JUMP!
Look, we're not publishing this blog post to show you the high school girls' basketball fight last night in Kingston, New York. Some black chicks decide to start brawling while the white girls on the teams try to find a rock to hide behind. A few black parents come out of the stands and it's on. Fists start flying and aggressions flow over. But it's the P.A. announcer who steals the show in our minds. This white guy, obviously not used to calling street brawls, gets all white. JUMP!
It's nearly impossible to tell when all 65 Fox affiliates are showing live basketball anymore because they don't put 'live' in the upper right corner so we thought this was some replay of Mavs-Pistons. It's actually 'live' tonight and we just happened to be 65 channels beyond where our normal surfing ends. Not even five minutes after turning it to the game, we came across these bros with the best NBA seats they'll ever get - between Vince Carter and Delonte West. Anyone got a blunt? JUMP!
So you see #34 in white. That's Cole Vanderbilt. Looks to be a center on the Connell High School (WA) basketball team. The kid is getting destroyed across America today (front of Yahoo!) for his antics in a December 22 game against some dorkwads from Highland H.S. How crazy have things gotten today? There's a Facebook page floating around that has phone numbers for Cole and his thug teammate who took part in a couple rough foul calls. You make the call - JUMP!
While the douchebags at Around the Horn are debating whether Mark Cuban is right about the NBA being jerkoffs for not scheduling them into Washington D.C. to visit the Prez, we were investigating reports of Mark in Miami for New Year's. What we know is that Cuban was hammered (or just looked that way) at Wet Bar Miami, according to those in attendance, including a Notre Dame nose tackle. Frosted Flakes shirt on New Year's for a 53-year-old-man? Ok. JUMP!
It's the typo that is causing lots of LOLs around the basketball and newspaper world as the Charlotte Observer seemed to have some deadline issues with this morning's sports page. Of course newspaper/media insider Jim Romenesko went searching for answers. A sports editor tried to explain how a copy editor went to correct the disc spelling to disk and instead ended up with dick. Ahh, old media, so embarrassed by a random 'dick' in the newspaper (via @RosinskiBill)
While the Hollywood gossip blogs are concentrating on news Olivia Wilde and SNL funny guy Jason Sudeikis dating news, we're busy comprehending what this means to Kansas basketball. You see, Sudeikis is from Overland Park, Kansas. He's a diehard KU fan. And now he's responsible for taking his hot chick to see the Jayhawks destroy Howard last week, 89-34. Need proof that funny guys can still pull A-list poon? This is case study #1. JUMP!
How big was last night in the sports world? Huge if you're Savannah Brinson, longtime girlfriend & baby mamma of LeBron James' two boys, the youngest born in 2004. LeBron, during a birthday/New Year's party, asked Savannah to marry him. Of course the ring is gigantic. We're not wasting time looking up the value. Let's just say it's worth more than your house. Brinson has been with LeBron since high school, making her the most patient woman in NBA history. JUMP!
Thanks to the guys at The Big Lead we get to see Mr. Cunnilingus this morning saluting the ladies during overtime of the Pacers 98-91 win over the Cavs. We're guessing Indiana student, Christmas break, climbs mountains (hence the North Face coat) and had at least 5-6 cold ones during this classic tilt. Now comes your part. Name his ass. Let's find a woman who can either support or reject Mr. Cunnilingus. This shouldn't take too long: email@example.com
Things are bad in Minnesota. Real bad. Their sports teams are so wretched they went and named a WNBA player their sportsperson of the year. Yeah, we know the Minnesota Lynx won the WNBA title... or at least we do now. They really had no other choice but to name Seimone Augustus their sportsperson of the year because, well, the rest of their teams blow. Here's a look at how this all went down. It ain't pretty. Check it!
Michael Jordan is engaged, this we know. Jordan popped the question to Yvette Prieto on Christmas & on Tuesday morning he didn't jump in Air 1 & didn't take off from Miami for the Virgin Islands. There's been wild speculation that the couple was celebrating their engagement on the French Riviera, which would be impossible since MJ was sitting with Cam Newton during last night's Heat-Bobcats game in Charlotte. But his insane jet is in the Virgin Islands. JUMP!
WCNC is Charlotte is reporting that Michael Jordan has popped the question to longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto. The source responsible for the engagement news leak says that MJ did the deed on Christmas Day. He then watched the Bobcats season opener with Derek Jeter on Monday. Boss move, Prieto. That's how a guy puts his foot down and claims his turf. You get a ring, access to his millions and His Airness gets to talk Nike with Jetes. PHOTOS of Prieto - JUMP!
He's only in sixth grade, but ESPN has already called him the next hoops phenom. And with good reason. Damon Harge has some sick moves on the court for anyone, much less someone who's 12. He dominates the top talent his own age and he holds his own against high schoolers. That's right, he plays at the varsity level against some college-ready talent. Wanna see what all they hype is about? Check the video.
We'd read earlier this year that Mark Cuban had this weird way of getting ready for a Mavs basketball game, especially during the 2011 NBA Finals. The guy literally gets on a stair climber and gets in a workout. Oh, & because he's a showman, Cuban also allows the media in to ask questions. Take this Sunday. There was Cubes, 30 minutes before showtime on his stair climber, catching the end of the Celtics-Knicks and just showering the Dallas media with billionaire sweat. JUMP!
Ever get a bank account boner? Let me paint a picture for you. Imagine buying Cam Newton's game-worn BCS pants before Newton is even drafted. You spend $1,500 and are instantly called a "f-ing moron." Then the guy is drafted #1 overall and then goes out and accounts for 34 Panthers' TDs. Rookie of the Year, rookie records destroyed, blah, blah, blah. But then the guy shows up at last night's Hornets game & is a fashion icon. That's a bank account boner. Let's get rolling!
You probably haven't heard of Justice Winslow yet, but you will. Winslow is only a high school sophomore at Houston (Texas) St. John's School, but he can jump out of the gym and has a wicked crossover to boot. Over the holidays, Winslow threw down one of the wickedest slams we've seen from a high school kid. The only problem is, he did some taunting immediately following it, collected two technicals and got tossed. Here's the video. Check it!
Look, Jill Martin's face isn't getting any younger, but that rack somehow manages to stay as lovely as ever. It was just 25 days ago that we introduced you to the Knicks MSG 'features' sideline reporter and the rack is still holding together nicely from what we can see yesterday in Miami. Usually 25 days for a chick of Jill's age (what, late 30s) is like an eternity. All hell can break loose. But there the rack was, in shape. Hands down best sideline reporter rack in the NBA. JUMP!
Wow, who would've ever thought Dick Vitale would be embroiled in a Christmas Day Twitter war like he was in last night? What could possibly anger Dickie V. to the point of blocking a Twitter follower? Of course it was something so vulgar and disgusting to Duke fans around the world. Of course it involved J.J. Redick and a Jerry Sandusky reference. You want to get on Vitale's bad side? This is how it's done. Say Vitale was plowing Redick and it's on! JUMP!
For those of you not in the know, Sunday is opening day for the NBA & the NFL is holding its normal Sunday games tomorrow. That means all eyes will be on Dallas where the Mavs open their shortened defense of the NBA title against the Miami Heat (2:30 EST, ABC). Blah, blah, blah. It's still the NBA and we're still bored by the sport until early June. For now we're fixated on the dancers and how Shaq is doing in the TNT booth. Today we get to know the Mavs Dancers. JUMP!
Merry Christmas, fool. So there was this big release last night at midnight for Michael Jordan's new shoes, Concords. That meant street thugs, whitey, gangbangers and ever other form of punk you could think of broke away from his/her video game marathon to hit the mall. Then all hell broke loose. Thugs tore doors off stores, busted down doors and brawled in the Brooklyn streets. The shoes retail for $180 and there were limited supplies. Powderkeg! JUMP!
Everything we thought we knew has just been turned upside down. Well, not really, but we're still a little befuddled. We heard about Kayte Christensen today because she was given some made-up position by the Phoenix Suns. Kayte used to play for the Phoenix Mercury, which is a WNBA franchise. Here's the rub -- she's actually hot. She can probably actually walk in heels too. So, in honor of her new job and the fact that she's an anomaly, we've got a gallery for you. Check it!
We're getting the basketball season started off appropriately! That is to say, with a sexting scandal! Golden State Warriors guard Monta Ellis is getting sued by a former team employee for allegedly texting her pictures of his junk. The organization is being sued as well. The woman, Erika Smith, says Ellis' advances and junk picture were unwanted. Here's the story and a laughable video from our Taiwanese friends at NMA. Check it!
You used to wait anxiously all year for Christmas Day when there would be a Nintendo, a Ken Griffey Jr. 1989 Upper Deck rookie card, a super-cool Alf doll or even a Cabbage Patch doll for those of you metrosexuals who were of age during that period. Now you've grown up and just want to sleep late and wake up to a woman such as those on our 2011 Sexy WAGs of Christmas Past & Present. Of course they're in a relationship, but 'tis the season to dream big and remember what the Christmas spirit is all about. We have Adriana Lima, Danielle Lloyd, Erica Ellyson, Gemma Atkinson & more celebrating the Yuletide. JUMP!
Not sure what the hell was going on last night at the Knicks-Nets game but we have photos of Kate Upton & Walt Frazier promoting Daily Burger's (new MSG burger joint). So many ways to go with this. The original thought was 'Kate Upton Now Dating Walt Frazier - WTF?' or 'Creepy Dude About To Eat Kate Upton.' Kudos to the marketing genius who was able to get Upton on the day she killed the Internet. Let's be honest, best promo shoot of the year. JUMP!
'Tis the season for rich guys to have their Christmas cards end up online. We're told the photo (left, of course) is Mark Cuban's Christmas card complete with the NBA Championship trophy. Hopefully LeBron got a card in the mail. What else is going on this morning? Kate Upton is staying silent about her relationship with Mark Sanchez. Meanwhile, the NYJ have gone from -2 to -3 for Sunday's game. Gamblers liking Dirty in this spot. Let's get rolling!
The Toronto Raptors have unveiled the first camouflage uniforms in NBA history. Yep, that's right -- the Raptors. They will wear their unis four times during this season, the first time on March 21. The Raptors are doing the honorable thing by honoring their troops, but we have to ask "Why in the hell is the NBA allowing the first camo unis to be worn by the Canadian team?" Aren't we the United States -- the baddest ass, most ass-kicking military on the planet?
