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?
Biggest LeBron news this week? Dude's hairline is out of control and yet he refuses to just go with the Jordan shaved look. Of course Black America is going nuts. White America, from what our researchers tell us, don't really care because most of us are fat and balding anyway. Name a black athlete that left his balding hair this long and won an NBA championship. That's right, you can't. Your call, Lebron. Time to face the facts. This isn't a good look, bro. JUMP!
It's that time of year when the major sports teams across this great nation sacrifice a few of their cheerleaders or dancers for a worthy cause - the troops. The Busted Coverage team doesn't have ties to the military but we know there are many of you who, if you can get it through the military censors, check BC for some T&A while you're serving around the world. If we could afford mascots and cheerleaders, your asses would be getting this Okinawa treatment. JUMP!
Danny Woodhead is 5' 7" short. Gheorghe Muresan is 7' 7" tall. The two bros met this week and put to rest what it would look like when Woodhead met Muresan. It looks about like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar meeting Olivia Munn earlier this year. One's tall, the other is short. Of course this becomes a freak show that flies around the Internet because you guys have the thoughts rolling around in your empty brain whether Woodhead could kick Muresan's ass. Full shot - JUMP!
Don't think Dick Vitale reads your mentions on Twitter? Pfft. Take Saturday after the Kentucky-Indiana game. @loganwow typed: @DickieV do you live to hate/rag on Kentucky?
#pathetic. Protecting his slurping history, Vitale shot back: Give me a break - ur players & coaches always thank me 4 the kind words I say about them. Suck it, Logan Wow. Vitale won't stand for your petty bullshit snipes from Twitter-land. (Also, we noticed Dickie is still infatuated with Khloe.)
A brawl broke out at the Xavier Cincinati game on Saturday leaving Kenny Frease bloody and screaming on the court. There was less than 10 seconds left in the game when the fight broke out and the benches cleared. Cincinnati Bearcat player Yancy Gates threw punches and kicks towards Xavier player. The DJ then played "Run This Town" by Jay-Z afterwards. Well played DJ. H/T to @Bubbaprog. JUMP!
Dick Vitale unloading on Twitter: Lamar Odom a no show @ Lakers camp according to reports . - Whast would u rather do stay home with
@khloeKardashian or run sprints? Look at Vitale trying to start a shitshow with the Kardashians. You want war, Vitale? That giant bitch is about to unleash hell on your old ass. Obviously you haven't seen what those bitches did to Kris Humphries. Poor guy was called gay on a magazine for God's sake. Your move, Vitale. We'd delete that tweet.
He's the man of the hour. The f-bombs directed to Dan Gilbert were coming in so fast 30 minutes go that we could barely keep up. You put a white guy in front of Black America and tell them he's pulling strings in the NBA and you have a Twitter war. Danny done gone and pissed off an entire race by sending that email to Stern, which helped nix the CP3 to L.A. scenario. Of course there were slave references. Of course there was venom. Of course we were there to document. JUMP!
Just wake up? Haven't heard the news about the three-team trade that was supposed to send Chris Paul to the Lakers, was nixed by David Stern? Haven't heard that Dan Gilbert allegedly sent Stern a letter about competitive balance that led to the NBA nixing the Paul-to-Lakers trade? Here is the report from Cleveland.com on how it all went down last night. Of course Gilbert became enemy #1 and the natural progression of the story was to destroy his Wikipedia page. JUMP!
So the big sports news yesterday - besides Pujols to the
Cardinals Angels - was Chris Paul in a three-team trade with Houston getting in on the fun. Or something like that. But no, the trade was nixed after certain owners complained about the formation of a super team. And all hell broke loose within the Twitter world. White guys were instantly going berserk over Stern caving to Dan Gilbert. Listen up, it's the N.B.A. It's been bullshit for 10-12 years. Wake up. Let's get rolling!
Back in September the Wall Street Journal dropped a real estate news nugget that Alonzo Mourning was trying to unload his Coral Gables mansion. Guess that Florida millionaire mansion market isn't moving very well because 'Zo is still waiting on an idiot to drop $14,500,000 on this place. What is Mourning doing with 13k sq. ft.? Housing Shawn Kemp's kids? JUMP!
Just imagine the high-fives being thrown around last night in Nigeria when God's Gift Achiuwa stepped up to the free throw line and ESPN's director called for his PPG graphic. It must've been pandemonium. Dudes throwing malt liquor in the sky like they were up in an Atlanta strip club. God's Gift is from Nigeria and the guy comes from a batshit crazy family. Wait until you see the names of his siblings. C-R-A-Z-Y! JUMP!
For those of you who get the MSG channel or maybe pay attention to the Today Show, you know who Jill Martin is. She's that chick who 'interviews' celebs and sh!t before NY Knicks games. In other words, her job is to look hot, throw some cleav in your face and prevent you from changing the channel. Well, Jill is prepping for the new NBA season by getting a little sun and fun in Miami. What does it all mean? It means Jill gets her rack on BC. Congrats, babydoll. JUMP!
Taylor Young is the name of the Michigan State cheerleader who was smashed against the Breslin Center floor last night in a freak cheerleading accident. It was an emotional moment and even Mike Tirico was a little choked up. However, Taylor's father, Charles, got on Facebook and posted what has to be one of the greatest injury updates in the history of cheerleading parenting. You see that booty shot via the AP? Yeah, well dad went there. JUMP!
Remember how Don King used to promote fights in which he was the promoter for both boxers? Remember how Don would always end up with a smile from ear to ear and in the corner of the winner? Yeah, well that's Dick Vitale. Just look at him slurping on OSU's big man, Jared Sullinger, after last night's destruction of Duke. Look at the box score. Duke had nothing on the inside. Dickie is cheating on his Dookies & he's not the least bit shameful. Let's get rolling!
For some strange reason we wondered this afternoon what Bruce Pearl has been up to now that he's no longer a college basketball coach. One search led to Bruce's wife, which then led to the Twitter account of Bruce's busty daughter Jacqui who seems to have a great sense of humor. Imagine the grin on our faces after discovering that 'He loves it in the ass,' shirt in her Twitpics. Brilliant! Of course it was perfect time to point that finger at Bruce. Had to. Sorry, chief.
Washington Wizards forward Rashard Lewis is about to take a bath on his Florida man lair. The pad is on the market for $500,000 less than he paid for it, but hey, the dude probably needs the money. He's been locked out by the league and rumor has it, when the NBA offseason finally begins he's going to get axed by the Wizards, who can take advantage of a stipulation in the new collective bargaining agreement to wipe his salary off the books. Time to unload! Check it!
Of course our friends at Rick's Cabaret are going through with this Stripper Basketball League plan that was announced a few weeks ago when the NBA was still locked out. And they've even pulled a major name in the basketball world to be head coach of the Rick's New York franchise. None other than Spud Webb has agreed to lend his basketball expertise to strippers who are used to posting up on poles instead of opponents. This should be interesting. JUMP!
We understand that sports collectibles are big business, but what exactly do you do with someone's sweaty gym shoes? I guess that's for people with a lot of money to throw around to figure out. You can now own a pair of autographed Air Jordans worn by Mike himself in the 1985 NBA All-Star game. It wasn't the greatest all-star game Jordan ever had, but someone is still ready to drop more than $6,000 on them. Here's the rundown. Now get out there and throw some money around! JUMP!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Jimmer Fredette -- he'd probably be playing NBA basketball right now if he could be. Instead, he's playing in charity games &, well, making white people look good! Before a charity game at UC Davis, Isaiah Thomas challenged Jimmer to a dance-off. Turns out, Thomas was a fool. Jimmer breaks it down & not even John Wall -- Mr. Dougie himself -- wants any of it. Check it!
It's not that Front Row Amy is asking for help to land front row tickets to a Wisconsin basketball game on 12/15 against Savannah St. She's going to the game & tells us she has great seats - just not front row. "But I'll be near the front :)," Amy tells us on Twitter. Listen up all you Wisconsin dorkwads, you make a visit right now to @BrewerGirl823 & offer her a front row seat. This is the Ripken of sports fans. You guys can't possibly let this travesty become reality. JUMP!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Metta World Peace, isn't happy about the NBA lockout. He's more than happy to use Twitter... nonstop, to talk about the lockout, though. As you might assume, a nutjob who changed his name to Metta World Peace actually has some pretty funny stuff to say about the league's labor situation. Whether he's taunting Michael Jordan or David Stern or missing Jack and Denzel, Metta is definitely entertaining. Check it out for yourself!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Clippers big man Chris Kaman got to go deer hunting in his native Michigan for the first time in years. The rifle season opened over the weekend & although Kaman didn't drop any trophy bucks himself, he did document his adventures -- much to the dismay of some of his followers. Kaman didn't seem to care though. He simply called those who didn't agree with him douche. He ended the weekend by gutting a friend's kill. Check it!
That's right, Hope Dworaczyk is now 27-years-old. You are allowed to feel old for a minute. You remember her as the ex-girlfriend of Jason Kidd who famously wore a painted Dallas Mavericks jersey over her naked body. It still ranks as one of the most influential moments in NBA history, right up there with Bill Russell dunking on white guys for the first time. Hope is now a businesswoman with an insane lingerie Internet collection. Happy birthday, Hope. JUMP!
Is this Jason Kidd's way of telling Jason Kidd that his days as a Dallas Mavericks PG are over? The Dallas condo goes on the market during the NBA lockout which looks like it's going to deep six the entire season. Kidd turns 39 in March. We're pretty sure this is the sign that homeboy won't be spending very many more nights in his 21st floor Azure condo. $1.6 million gets you Dallas views and a gourmet kitchen. JUMP!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose doesn't pay for sex, at least not when you don't charge him up front. Rose allegedly stiffed a prostitute after a meeting in Memphis... or so we learned via Twitter today. You can take this for what it's worth, since we don't really know anything about the person who tweeted the story, other than she learned her whorin' techniques from a white girl. We should all be so lucky. Check it!
From BC Afternoon Editor Monty: You'd think an NBA player not named Doug Christie would wear the pants in his relationship. Apparently, we need to think again when it comes to Jimmer Fredette & his WAG Whitney Wonnacott after seeing their Halloween costume. Oh yes, it's coordinated! It's wholesome! And it's also totally unmanly. That's why we're revoking Jimmer's man card until future notice. Check it!
Hell, he's got nothing else to do, so Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hung out at Carolina Panthers practice today. While he was there he threw footballs at the goal post with Cam Newton & Co., which, it turns out, is a game players play in their free time. We didn't see Newton come through, but Curry did... and then he posed for the camera. Here's the video. Check it!
Dick Vitale isn't taking the Joe Paterno news very well. Look at the bags under his eyes as he opens his morning paper at the Broken Egg on Siesta Key. He's upset, has been lashing out at Paterno and Jerry Sandusky on Twitter and wants answers. He's even going off on Mike McQueary. The guy just tries to get some breakfast and sign some autographs and has to deal with this collegiate tragedy. We have an intern just tracking Vitale. Here is the report card. JUMP!
We've got a real value for you today and you can also help out an NBA players while he's not getting paid! Miami Heat forward Mike Miller's Miami mansion is on the block for just $9 million. We're talking three stories, six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a bomb-ass pool and a piece of land right next to the ocean. Not only that, but you'll help Miller make close to $4 million in profit. Here are the details and the photos. Check it!
It's the best basketball news we've heard in years. Brooklyn Decker, on Twitter today, announced that she'll be playing in a game of H-O-R-S-E with Magic Johnson & James Worthy during halftime of the UNC-Michigan State game on the USS Vinson. It's the same boat that carried Osama bin Laden's body to its watery grave. What a great way to give back to troops on Veterans Day - Brooklyn Decker shooting hoops. Your HORSE hero explains - JUMP!
As the NBA and the NBA Players meet today with David Stern promising a war the athletes don't want if they pass on his 50-50 revenue split offer. In other words, either the players call Stern's bluff or take the deal. If Stern isn't bluffing, the NBA season will, in effect, be over. The players will dig in. So will the owners. The real losers here are all those workers caught in the crossfire, such as Miami Heat dancer Ashley F. Her career hangs in the balance. JUMP!
Via BC Assignment Editor Monty: So, (I) really feel weird about saying this, but it almost looks like Lamar Odom's wife, Khloe Kardashian is suddenly passable as a woman. We know. Read that sentence again. We gotta give credit where credit is due, though. We were really disappointed in Lamar for a long time. He married the ugly Kardashian sister, but hell, she got rid of the adam's apple and found a gym. Check it!
Okay, it's true. We pretty much hate everything about women's basketball. However, once in a while something comes our way that says, "Hey! Pay attention to women's basketball!" Frankly, this isn''t it. Women's basketball is still a joke. The thing that isn't a joke is Elena Sichkar. Really. You need to see this. This broad was in the Russian version of Maxim under the title of "Erotic Basketball." Women's basketball has never looked so good. Check it!
