Charles Barkley really does not like the Golden State Warriors style of play and he isn’t afraid to admit it. He has backtracked somewhat because after a team goes 73-9 what else negative can you really say? Even with that regular season record however, Barkley is convinced the Warriors will fall short in their title mission. Steve Kerr was asked about the comments and it was clear he wasn’t bothered.
Fresh off their national championship, players from Villanova took the time to celebrate their big win with one of their smallest fans. Some players from the team surprised four year old, Blaise Davis, who is fighting a rare form of cancer but is still always strong enough to cheer on the team.
Everyone knows Common is a native of Chicago and how much he still loves his city. Turns out as a kid he had a great reason to love the city as well and that was because he was lucky enough to be a ball boy for the Bulls during the earlier parts of Michael Jordan’s career. He came up with a nice little business too when MJ started giving him game worn pairs of Kicks and Common decided to sell them rather than hold onto them.
Kanye wore a dope custom shirt for Kobe’s last game and the shirt wound up becoming a star itself. Everyone was wondering where they could get the same one, which was inspired by Kanye’s “The Life Of Pablo” collection that he has been selling. Tonight he decided to give everyone a chance to buy the shirt as he tweeted out a link to buy from his webstore. The shirt is going for $65 bucks and you can order it HERE. Make sure to check out the gallery to see the details of the shirt.
A huge number of family, friends, former teammates and fans showed up today at the Saints indoor practice facility to pay their respects at the memorial of Will Smith. His casket, adorned with a bouquet of flowers, was placed on a stage at the 50-yard line, while numerous enlarged photos of him from his playing days, as well as a make shift locker were on display for everyone to see. Smith’s wife Racquel, who was injured in the shooting, was able to attend in a wheelchair.
Each year just prior to the playoffs, Lebron always takes to twitter to let us know he is locked in for the post season with a message similar to “Zero Dark 23 activated #StriveForGreatness”. He pretty much has stuck to that every season (with the exception of last year when he got caught out there “liking” an Instagram model’s booty). This year however with the playoffs on the horizon he may do things differently.
Until the past few seasons, it was Ray Allen that was regarded as the best shooter of all time. Other names like Reggie Miller and Larry Bird are always thrown around as well but for the most part the consensus was that Allen was the best. Steph Curry decided to change that argument the past couple years and you can’t deny he has a very strong argument with his play and shooting. In fact, he has Allen ready to sign off on Curry replacing him as the best shooter of all time and with Steph fresh off hitting more than 400 three’s this season, he really has no choice.
Not surprisingly, the NBA voted last night to allow teams to wear an advertising patch on the front of their jersey, starting with the 2017-2018 season. Each team will be responsible for selling their own ad space, which will be a 2.5-inch-by-2.5-inch space opposite the NBA logo.
Bad Medina received a new gift this past week and it was all “just because” courtesy of her boyfriend, Floyd Mayweather. TMZ spoke with Floyd’s car guy, Obi Okeke, who said the champ called him and ordered a $550,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe simply because he felt like it. Okeke said “This is the 4th car Floyd has bought for her in less than two years from me. She has 3 Rolls-Royce Ghosts and now the 2016 Rolls-Royce Phantom drop.” Check the gallery!
Tyrann Mathieu has made a name for himself in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals but before he was a household name, he was just a kid from the New Orleans area who found a way out. After the horrific murder of former Saints player Will Smith earlier this week, Mathieu went off on twitter, saying he knew the shooter and called him a “hater” and “Coward” but he also singled out hip hop music for the message it has spread in his hometown. He wants rappers to be more positive and while Master P can agree with a positive message, he doesn’t agree with Mathieu that hip hop is to blame.
