Twitter is such a powerful force. Not powerful enough to make the NBA playoffs go a certain way, but if it was based on twitter mentions alone, there would be some surprises throughout. Some of the favorites would be knocked out early if it were up to the fans. Twitter put together a bracket based on team mentions since the start of the season. Hit the jump to see the image and who has the loudest fans. It is pretty dope. If you are a Miami Heat hater though, just look away now.
Win that money, spend that money! Manny Pacquiao made a guaranteed $20 million for his rematch against Timothy Bradley and he is far from selfish with his money. He treated his 50 person entourage to a shopping spree and even bumped into Floyd Mayweather’s boy Justin Beiber in the Apple store. Hit the jump.
The heat is already rising between the Los Angeles Clippers & Golden State Warriors ahead of their first round playoff matchup. It is no secret that these two teams do not like each other after their meetings this season which were all very physical, chippy and led to multiple players being ejected during the different games. A normally quiet member of the Warriors decided it was time to throw a jab towards Blake Griffin and he is just brushing them off.
Guys in the NBA need to chill with all that flopping because it is setting a bad example for youth players who think it is a good way to steal a call. I have seen more flopping in the past three seasons alone than what seems like the previous 20 years. This youth league baller is the best example of it. The background story with this video is the play just before, the kid who is flopping in this video got his ankles broke by the kid he was guarding. So his revenge is taking the flop, smh.
The two men suspected of being involved with Aaron Hernandez in the death of Odin Lloyd both had their charges upgraded today as they were indicted for murder.

Tony Romo has gotta be used to hearing the choke word when he is playing for the Cowboys but now he can’t even escape it away from the field. An NFL related twitter account posted a pic of Romo with Tiger Woods in honor of the Master golf event that is currently taking place. They posted the pic with the words #captionthis and a former rival on the field couldn’t help himself. London Fletcher played for the Redskins from 2007-2013 and faced Romo twice a year so he knows all about the famous ability to choke that Romo displays. He replied with a classic caption. Hit the jump.
WWE execs are scrambling to put together a worthy tribute for the Ultimate warrior who tragically passed away earlier this week. The warrior was easily one of the most popular figures in the sport and deserves to be praised as such. The company is actually planning two separate tributes, one which will air during Monday Night Raw next week and the other to air on the WWE Network. Hit the jump.
Colin Kaepernick is not going to allow TMZ to smear his name without speaking on the situation himself. He took to twitter to clear the air about him allegedly being involved in a sexual assault case in Miami earlier this month. The story was first reported by TMZ but even Police have said that they took the police report out of context and just ran with it. Reports from Police as of now say there does not appear to be anything suspicious or foul that Kaepernick was involved in. Hit the jump to see how he responded.
LOL, if this stat line were true, Timofey Mozgov would literally be the best player of all time, even better than Jordan. After the Nuggets beat the Warriors last night 100-99, TNT interviewed Mozgov because he played a huge role with 29 rebounds in the game. But the stat people apparently thought he also scored 93 points, even though he only took 15 shots. So unless the NBA magically changed the rules to have shots that are worth more than 3 points it is pretty impossible to score 93 points only taking 15 shots. Not sure how they missed it but it temporarily made Mozgov a legend. It was pretty funny though. Hit the jump.
