Rob Dyrdek used a very creative way to propose to his girlfriend, Bryiana Noelle. He got help from Disney and the Aladdin cast putting on a show to make his proposal part of the show and she never saw it coming. It is a good day for Rob because Bryiana is on another level and the former playboy model’s pics will attest to that. Congrats to the couple. Make sure you check out some pics of Bryiana in the gallery.
The copy cats have already started after a video was shared earlier today of Lebron throwing a basketball like a quarterback from one end of the court directly into the other basket…swish! Dwight Howard took the challenge and posted a video of him doing the same thing with a backpack on at the Mavericks arena as the Rockets were finishing up practice. For the record Lebron did it better because of the way he threw it. Both of these guys are in good spirits because they are both up 3-0 in their respective playoff series so having a little fun at practice isn’t a big deal.
Kawhi Leonard’s stock is going UP and everyone is taking notice. He was named the defensive player of the year for this season and is poised to become a perennial all star and one of the best overall players in the league period. The Spurs organization is one of the smarter ones in sports and according to reports they have no plans to low ball Kawhi this summer and in fact will offer him the max deal on the very first day of free agency.
Following the bench-clearing brawl between the Kansas City Royals & Chicago White Sox on Thursday, Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura was dealt the harshest punishment, as the 23-year-old received a seven-game suspension from the league Saturday. Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez was suspended five games, while outfielder Lorenzo Cain and reliever Kelvin Herrera got two-game suspensions. White Sox starters Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija were each given five-game suspensions.
We gotta wonder sometimes if Lebron is even human. Some of the things he does athletically at his size aren’t even fair and this is another prime example. The Cavs are in Boston and looking to sweep the Celtics, but during some down time, Bron is throwing shots up that resemble his old Powerade commercials, except this was real! Lebron took the ball and threw it quarterback style from one end of the court to the other basket and the result was nothing but net! Sounds like someone owes him some money too for betting he couldn’t do it. I can’t think of anyone else in the league who could make this shot look so easy.
Mark Sanchez might not say it publicly but he isn’t likely too thrilled to be on the same team as Tim Tebow again. The pair were teammates with the Jets and even then Sanchez didn’t like the fact of Tebow being inserted into a game for a play or two and throwing off the offensive rhythm. With them once again being paired on the Eagles depth chart along with Sam Bradford there are obviously too many names for one job. Experts say obviously the job belongs to Bradford, but that Sanchez could push him to start as well. Nobody thinks Tebow was brought in to go after the starting job, but the way Sanchez tells it, he doesn’t expect Tebow to be around period.
Drake gets a lot of flack for always supporting front running teams or the star athlete of the moment, but he does have genuine love for his Raptors. Unfortunately or him however the Raptors are basically being run out of the Playoffs by the Wizards so he might not have much time left this season to cheer for them. With that in mind, Drizzy traveled to D.C. to watch the Raptors try and get back in the series. The moment he walked in the boo’s started but he handled it like a pro, taking a couple bows and enjoying it. It was all for not though as the Raptors lost again and now are down 3-0 in the best of seven series so it is pretty much a wrap at this point.
It is safe to say Greg Hardy’s first week in Dallas could have gone a little better. The polarizing defensive end was signed by the Cowboys during the offseason with the expectation he would face some type of suspension from the league for his domestic violence issues. The suspension was handed down earlier this week and it was for ten games, so things were already off to a bad start. Then during one of his first practice’s he got into a fight with teammate Davon Coleman, who called him a “woman beater”. Now on top of all that Hardy also had to literally leave his black Bentley on a road in Dallas after it was surrounded by flood waters.
The biggest story of the NFL offseason for a while was the question of does a tape of Dez Bryant doing something despicable on camera really exist? It seemed the Cowboys were about to get the shock of a lifetime and the league as well. At one point people were on edge as footage was expected to be released any day, but then that day came & went. In the age of social media stories can snowball out of control without any real proof things are true and this, for now at least appears to be something like that.
A lot of you might think you are talking placing real money on the biggest fight in history May 2nd, but most people can’t even understand this level of money talk. Diddy and Mark Wahlberg made a wager of $250,000 on the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight. Diddy is going for Floyd, and Mark for Manny. When you are rich like these guys it’s easy to make bets like this because there is really nothing to worry about. $250K is a lot of money, but it’s small change to them. Who you think will win this bet?? Diddy probably is not used to someone calling him out for small wager like Mark does at first.
