ESPN along with the NBA on ABC have definitely stepped up their music game the past few years. What the studio crew lacks in entertainment, the music between segments is enough to make you nod your head and forget about it. Last year ESPN used Mobb Deep’s “Survival of the fittest” record off the classic “The Infamous” album to promote their playoff baseball coverage and it was such a hit that this time they had the duo actually remix the song exclusively to be used during the network’s coverage of the Western Conference finals.
I have no idea what the point of sharing this video was, other than to just get attention for herself, because nothing is really going on here. She is pouring champagne for Lamar while he is apparently in a shoe store and he seems to be trying to talk to her but not really at the same time. Odom can talk to who he wants since his wife Khloe has no problem flaunting other relationships, but this particular video just seems more about the chick thinking she is cute than anything else.
The Lebron hate is real! It is amazing to know there are people out here who are so blinded by hate or completely dumb that they think 52 year old Michael Jordan is better than the current version of Lebron. MJ is the GOAT but people need to come back to earth if they really believe this.
Odell Beckham Jr has become pretty good friends with Lebron James and is a big supporter of the King. After Bron hit the epic game winner to take game four, OBJ posted a video going crazy, but last night he was all about trolling the Bulls. The way Chicago just faded and appeared to give up gave OBJ all the ammunition he needed to make it worse for Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and the rest of the failures. I would never call them failures just for losing but it’s the way they just gave up and showed no heart.
A jury just ruled that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be put to death for his role in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. The execution ruling required a unanimous decision from the jury, which convicted Tsarnaev last month of all 30 counts against him.
This clearly is not a good thing for Brady, the Patriots or the NFLPA. Yesterday Tom Brady officially filed his appeal of the four game suspension he is facing for his alleged role in “deflate gate”. The Players Association had asked for an independent person to hear the appeal, but because of the power Goodell has, he declined and instead appointed himself as the person to hear the appeal, which obviously is a clear conflict of interest.
This is either a story of a former NFL player just trolling, looking for attention, or one of those things where you don’t realize how serious someone was until later on. Ryan Mouton, who currently plays in the CFL, used to be on the Tennessee Titans and during a game against the Patriots, he helped tackle Aaron Hernandez and his helmet came off. What happens next is up for debate.
Allen Iverson had one hell of a career and is still idolized by the masses for the way he carried himself and for his huge heart. Nobody played the game as fearlessly as AI did and that’s part of the reason why he is still so relevant. Iverson has a documentary releasing this weekend on Showtime titled after his last name and he is currently doing the media rounds. While on the Doug Gottlieb show yesterday he was asked about his regrets, future and more and he got very deep when talking about former coach, Larry Brown.
The WNBA just announced that both Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson were going to be suspended for the first seven games of the season. The couple just got married last week and appear to have moved on from the domestic incident that got both of them arrested last month. The WNBA still was yet to have it’s say and today they give their ruling.
Argentine soccer player Emanuel Ortega passed away nearly two weeks after suffering a brutal and accidental injury during a game. Ortega, of fifth-tier club San Martín de Burzaco, suffered a double skull fracture on the pitch two weeks ago in a match against Juventud Unida.
