It has to be one of the best feelings to be able to financially provide for the same people who took care of you and that is what Marcus Smart is doing. Before he spends any of his new found wealth on unnecessary things Smart took care of home, buying a mini mansion for his parents just outside of Dallas. Marcus said ‘She picked out an awesome place. It’s incredible. I love it, so she did a good job. It was crazy. I looked at my mom and she was smiling from ear to ear. And my dad. And I just felt proud. It’s probably one of the biggest accomplishments as a young man, is to give your mom what she always wanted. And to take care of her, especially after she takes care of you all those years. And to make her happy. It’s a blessing. I thank God every day for the opportunity to be able to do something like that”. Hit the jump to see the pics.
Andrew Wiggins is off to a decent start in his NBA career and his off the court success is getting going as well. Adidas dropped their first commercial with Wiggins for the NBA swingman jerseys and they take a little jab at the how the trade from Cleveland worked out. It’s good to see he can have fun with it. Hit the jump.
It is still early in the NBA season, but as you might expect people are already jumping to conclusions that they are going to feel totally different about in another month. The Cavs specifically have been the target of harsh criticism due to the big 3 of Lebron, Kyrie Irving & Kevin Love getting off to a slow start with a record of 1-3. Not to mention the locker room drama of a disagreement between Bron & Kyrie and it is easy to see why fans could exaggerate the demise of the team so soon. Former all-star Tracy McGrady has apparently already seen enough and tweeted he thinks Lebron needs to work the Cavs for a trade to ditch Kyrie for another current all star point guard. Hit the jump to see.
Whoever is running the Denver Nuggets twitted account needs a pat on the back after this troll job they did on Lebron and the rest of the big 3 from Cleveland. The Nuggets host the Cavs tonight and it is no secret Lebron is good for business even for opposing teams. Fans come out to watch Lebron but the Nuggets account wanted to make sure fans knew who the real important players for the Cavs are. It is actually pretty funny. Hit the jump.
Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins strike me as two dudes who you don’t want to upset. With Kevin Durant & Russell Westbrook both out with injury there is already enough stress around the team. A report is saying there is some negative things happening beneath the surface as well and it is affecting the locker room. Ibaka & Perkins decided to “freeze” point guard Reggie Jackson out of the game by not passing him the ball after both big men became upset with his play.
Serena Williams is definitely dragging a whole lot of wagon behind her and according to her that is why she choose not to run the NYC marathon with her friend. Serena took to twitter this morning to do an “Ask me anything” type thing and someone asked her about not running. Her answers was simple, “my ass is too big”. I am sure it would get tiring having to drag that big booty 26 miles through the streets of New York. She also said she is desperate to have children and is currently single, “but not by choice”. Interesting, but in the mean time check out the pics of her and you will understand why she didn’t run.
Sports fans borderline on being fanatics sometimes and this is one of those cases. Fans like that are very anal about things and they are calling out Big Sean for being a fake a** football fan. Why you may ask? They are ripping him for his video for “IDFWU” which football plays a major role in the video. They are attacking him for such irrelevant things like what jersey number he and others are wearing and in real life players who play that position wouldn’t wear those numbers. I guess they forgot it is just a video but they go hard.
This was actually pretty funny. Last night Chuck said he will begin fasting until the Lakers win their first game of the season. The Lakers face the Hornets, Grizzlies, Pelicans, Spurs, Warriors, Hawks, Rockets, Mavericks, Nuggets, and Grizzlies between now and Thanksgiving. Charles may not eat again until his family sits down for that turkey. The Lakers are 0-5 and just look absolutely “turrible” in the words of Charles. He has stuck with things in the past that seemed funny so let’s see how long he tries to do this. Soon as he said it he immediately wished he didn’t.
