Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-Point Night Newspaper Headlines From 1962

There might be a couple of you old coots reading this who remember March 3, 1962. That was a Saturday morning when you old coots woke up and read that Wilt Chamberlain dropped 100 points on the Knicks the night before in Hershey, PA. In Miami it was HUGE news. In Saskatoon, not so much. Thanks to the Internet and newspaper archives we can go back and see how those paginators played Wilt's accomplishment. JUMP!

Amber Ginn Rips Off $370 From Lockers At H.S. Girls Basketball Game [Cuff ‘Em]

Via: Amber D. Ginn, 19, attended an East Central girls basketball game on January 17. During the game, she allegedly snuck into the locker room and stole $370 from the lockers of four players. Surveillance video in the hallway outside the locker room helped lead police to identify Ginn as a suspect. According to a court affidavit, Ginn admitted to the theft. She was arrested Tuesday. Just lucky there was $370 in lockers or inside intel? This one smells.

Karl Malone Shall Now Be Called The Deliverer On Twitter

It kinda flew under the radar over the weekend that The Mailman is now making wordy deliveries on Twitter such as this gem about a witches tit in Nebraska. The choice of @TheDeliverer_32 is kinda odd since themailman_32 was available. So who's The Deliverer following? Of course the Huntsman Daughters and Karl Malone Jr. Follow The Deliverer & you'll figure out he likes to call his followers 'grasshoppers.' Why? No idea, but it's keeping us intrigued.

How Much You Willing To Pay For Kobe’s Game-Used Mask? [Morning Twitpic]

Gotta figure this mask will be auctioned off for charity once Black Mamba's nose heals. Kinda figuring a game-used NBA mask could fetch at least $5k. It's unique, has been on Kobe's face and was used in a 31 point, 8 assist, 7 rebound blowout of the Timberwolves. As for Jeremy Lin, he had a nosebleed last night which pushed him off the NY Post backpage for a white guy. Efforting the last time a white NBA player made backpage. Has to be years. Let's get rolling!

Alabama Student Newspaper’s Iron Bowl Basketball Game Filler Ad

That is a full-page advertorial in today's Crimson White, the University of Alabama student newspaper. Easily the greatest filler ad in Alabama newspaper history & that's even counting daily newspapers. What's the occasion? Oh, the Auburn Tigers are in town for an 8 p.m. EST basketball tip. The Crimson Tide are 19-9, presumably a couple wins away from an NCAA bid & the Tigers are 14-14 & planning Spring Break trips. [Watch live on ESPN3]

Cheerleaders Of The Sun Belt Conference: Arkansas State’s Mallorye [PHOTOS]

BC Spirit Editor Asher sent word today that he was investigating a cheerleader he'd been hearing about at Arkansas State. Not that she'd done anything wrong. It was just that his sources were telling him that there were come wild chicks in the Sun Belt Conference. This is exactly why we hired Asher. He's not just reposting USC Song Girls pics. He's giving the mid-major cheerleaders a chance to shine on the Internet. JUMP!

Michael Jordan Selling House For $29MM [PHOTOS]

Is there a Holy Grail of athlete real estate? Yes, there is and it's the mansion in Highland Park, IL that Michael Jordan is trying to sell. We go through these athlete real estate deals on a daily basis and this $29,000,000 pad speaks for itself. Even Pete Sampras's mansion can't compete. Ever wanted your own basketball arena? Ever wanted 27,000 sq. ft. of house? Are you a new Facebook millionaire? Jump on this one!

Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan Is NBA’s Greatest Photobomber [PHOTOS]

While the Lakers are bitching about one thing or another, the Los Angeles Clippers are having a good time and leading the Pacific Division. Yeah, we still don't believe it either, but maybe it's because they're a bunch of stupid kids who don't understand the significance of the Clippers leading anything. Take center DeAndre Jordan, who likes to take photos of his teammates sleeping. Creepy, but also funny. Here are some of the best. JUMP!

Joakim Noah In St. Bart’s Swimming With His Busty Girlfriend [PHOTOS]

Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah just had a birthday. He went to St. Bart's to celebrate. Neither of these things are important, though. What is important is who he celebrated with. We don't know her name, but the ugliest dude in the NBA was actually spotted with a fairly hot lass. We can only attribute how this happened to the fact that he's rich. There's really no other explanation. Here's a look. Won't you please tell us more? JUMP!

Scott Skiles To Be Fired? Milwaukee House For Sale; $1.5MM [PHOTOS]

Seems kinda odd that Scott Skiles, head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, would put this massive house on the market in late February. His team is 13-20, but he's under contract through the '12-13 season. Is he just tired of the 4,700 sq. ft. of spaciousness? Is he just downsizing to a 2,500 sq. ft. pad to cut down on window cleaning? Skiles doesn't seem to be a dumb guy. Dude won't need this place in about 8 months. JUMP!

Michael Sweetney One Wind Sprint From Returning To NBA [PHOTO]

Been wondering what former Georgetown legend Michael Sweetney is up to? He's actually alive & playing in the Puerto Rican league. That's his current photo (left) and Sweets in 2010 (right). As you can see, he's been cutting weight. He's listed at 288 pounds. Of course that's generous. This guy actually averaged 15 ppg & 25 minutes played per game in 2011. Does your NBA team need a big body down the stretch? Sweets is all ears. (via @JohnnyNBA)

Kansas Fan Has One Final Middle Finger, OT Loss For Mizzou [Morning Twitpic]

What did we learn this weekend in sports? Did you watch that all-star game? LeBron still wants someone else to take the last shot. We had one guy saying he wasn't open to take the final shot. Dude, he's supposed to be the world's best basketball player. Just needs a field goal for the tie. Instead, Bron Bron takes another dump. True, it's an all-star game. Still. In racing news, the unemployed get to enjoy a Monday green flag at Daytona. 12 p.m. EST on Fox. Let's get rolling!

This Kansas Cheerleader Is Pretty Jacked [PHOTOS]

Yeah, she isn't as jacked as Anna Watson the muscular Georgia cheerleader but she is packing a pretty good punch. Look at those biceps. The Kansas Jayhawk mascot looked just as creepy as he does in every game but looked especially creepy as they took on the Mizzou Tigers. A sign in the crowd referenced "John Brown's Final Battle". All of this and more after the JUMP!

Trill Recognize Trill Jay Bilas Sign Spotted On College Gameday [PHOTOS]

Hate Punks? You’ll Love Lamar Coach Pat Knight’s Press Conference [VIDEO]

And you thought Bobby Knight was retired from coaching. Oh, wait. He is. That was his son Pat, the coach of Lamar, ripping off a legendary post-game rant that would make his father proud. After Lamar dropped a game to Stephen F. Austin the other night, the younger Knight ripped into his seniors, saying, among other things, they were stealing money by being on scholarship.

Jeremy Lin’s New Condo Has Marble Bathrooms, Couches! [PHOTOS]

New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin isn't sleeping on his brother couch anymore. Hooray! No, Lin is movin' on up, as it were, although not to the east side. Lin is subletting a condo in White Plains from former Knick David Lee, who was banished to Golden State in 2010. Lee's loss, Lin's gain we suppose.

The Internet’s First Jeremy Lin Tattoo [PHOTOS]

New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin already has a legion of fans, but probably none of them are as dumb as this dude. That's right. We've found the first idiot to get a Lin tattoo. It was only a matter of time, right? The best thing we can say about the ink is at least dude didn't get Lin's face tattooed on his body somewhere. Thankfully, it's just the guy's number. Still, we doubt this will help him with the ladies. You be the judge. Check it!

Don't worry, ESPN intern guy, hardly any East Coast asshole screencappers were still awake for this one. Should fly under the radar most of the day.

Binghamton’s 344 RPI Should Adjust Now That They’re 1-26 [Morning Twitpic]

Kudos to the Binghamton Bearcats for finally getting a win this basketball season. Now 1-26 after beating Vermont, 57-53, Binghamton should expect its 344th RPI ranking to adjust accordingly. Since it's a slow Wednesday morning, you should enjoy Bam Margera being arrested at Mardi Gras. The reason? Something about swimming in a pool with his clothes on. As for tomorrow night's Heat-Knicks game in Miami, $135 gets you a seat. Let's get rolling!

LINSANITY! America’s 1st Asian Stripper Wearing Jeremy Lin Jersey! [PHOTOS]

We continue to say it. There isn't a strip club in America that 'gets it' like the minds behind Rick's Cabaret in Manhattan. You know how many strip clubs send us press releases about their dancers and pop culture topics? 1. Rick's. That's because Lonnie Hanover continues to understand men, their sports interests and their interest in strippers. Take a Jeremy Lin jersey, put it on an Asian stripper & you have buzz. Brilliant.

Ricky Rubio Will Be Carrying This Justin Bieber Backpack [PHOTO]

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio has game, but that doesn't mean he gets a pass from rookie hazing. No, the Spaniard gets the same treatment as all first-year players. Thanks to veteran center Brad Miller, Rubio will be sporting a Justin Bieber backpack off the court for the remainder of the season. It's a sweet little number too... if you're a 10-year-old girl. We fully endorse Miller's choice. Check it!

These Chicks Crush Michigan Gameday W/ Kate Upton, Whitney Houston Signs [PHOTOS]

Wasn't really planning on spending my Saturday morning in Ann Arbor for ESPN Gameday, but figured you guys would enjoy a look at the hot Michigan chicks. Didn't exactly find any.

In typical Michigan dork fashion, these two were being ignored by the bros in the crowd. JUMP!

Alabama Coach Rocking Blue Bow Tie At Tennessee Game [PHOTOS]

Nice bow tie Anthony Grant. You kind of look like a waiter at my local seafood place. The baby in the background really adds to the picture too. I also think Grant's yelling is pretty half assed.

Your Move, Lin [Morning Twitpic]

Don't blame Jeremy Lin's 9 turnovers for last night's embarrassing Knicks 89-85 loss to the New Orleans Hornets. Look right at the 3-point FG percentages. NY was 4-of-24, while N.O. went 7-of-12. End of story. It was the Hornets 7th win of the season. Yes, a bunch of gamblers got their nuts kicked in. In other basketball news, we're leaving in an hour to visit the set of ESPN GameDay in Ann Arbor. Gotta keep an eye on this Digger Phelps character. Let's get rolling!
