The father of UCLA standout, Lonzo Ball, as well as two younger sons who are also committed to UCLA, has said that Lonzo is better than Steph Curry, has claimed that his sons will get a $1 billion dollar sneaker deal and has even said that he personally was better than Michael Jordan back in the day and he was dead serious.
image via: twitter The Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Denver Nuggets last night, a loss that allowed the Oklahoma City Thunder to creep withing a half game of the Clippers for the fifth seed in the western conference playoff race. Still, it wasn’t a total loss for the team as Chris Paul had some fun making Mason Plumlee look silly in the first quarter.

The team has had internal talks about going after Adrian Peterson in free agency and that is still a possibility but the news of them inquiring about Lynch certainly changes things.

His response was exactly the “I don’t give a f*ck” that we have come to expect from Russ.

He told a crowd in England during his tour over there that he is officially coming out of retirement to fight Conor, which is something he didn’t confirm in the past. He seems to be pretty set on making the fight happen and is getting fed up with Conor and all the extra nonsense that involves everything but the actual fight.
image via: twitter Saturday night’s game in San Antonio between the Spurs & Warriors was supposed to be one of the marquee games of the entire season. ABC decided to make the game it’s prime time game of the week for Saturday night but they can pretty much bet on having terrible ratings after it was announced that most of the best players on both teams won’t be playing. As you might expect, fans who paid extremely high resale prices to get into the arena are very angry after dishing out lots of money to basically watch the reserves from both teams.
image via: IFWT IG Is Andre Drummond the next NBA player to try his hand in the booth? According to him, not really but that didn’t stop him from spitting alongside a rapper from Detroit named @NateNixen. Even though Drummond doesn’t want to pursue rap in a serious way, his verse actually wasn’t bad. We have definitely heard worse from guys who are paid to rap.
image via: IFWT IG You know you just did something epic on the basketball court if the GOAT reacts to it. Last night in Charlotte, the Hornets blew out the Orlando Magic by 38 points but that wasn’t the story of the night. Nope, the story of the night belonged to the gruesome, posterizing dunk that Marvin Williams threw down over Bismack Biyombo.

Simpson” and ESPN’s 30 for 30 “O.J. Simpson, Made In America,” that draw in huge ratings. With the possibility of Simpson being paroled this year, some producers may be thinking getting an O.J. reality show would be huge.
