This certainly didn’t take long, but reports are claiming that Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has been gauging the interest of people for months in regards to selling his interest in the team. He is completely open to giving up his majority ownership, but of course for the right price. That price is not going to be cheap, especially considering the recent $2 billion dollar sale of the Clippers. I can’t say I am surprised about these reports though because things aren’t exactly working out for the team the way the owner expected. Hit the jump.
The school that already has the best uniform & jersey game in the country, The University of Oregon, stepped it up another notch last night in odes to Breast Cancer. The #2 ranked Ducks didn’t look so good on the field, losing 31-24 to an un-ranked but tough Arizona team, but all eyes were on their pink & black uniforms. They already get whatever they want from Nike thanks to alumni Phil Knight who just happens to have helped start the company. Each week you never really know what they are gonna be wearing as they run out of the tunnel but no doubt the uni’s from last night were dope & eye catching. Quarterback Marcus Mariota’s Heisman chances took a big hit last night but at least he can know he looked good in defeat. Hit the jump.
Johnny Manziel is obviously getting accustomed to his NFL salary because he finally made a move that most new players to the league do. He upgraded his car game! Johnny traded in his humble 2014 Nissan Titan SL, for the second fastest production car, a 2015 Nissan GT-R. The new ride comes complete as a special edition with black interior, which ran about $110,000! The catch is he autographed the dashboard of his Titan which he traded in and the truck is on full display at the dealership in Cleveland for $43,720, which they admit includes a higher price cause of the signature on the dashboard. Guarantee you someone buys it, likely from Texas once they put the truck on Ebay. Check the pics.
Rajon Rondo will not be on the court for the Celtics when they open training camp next week. He also will likely not be on the court when the season starts either and all of this due to a clumsy move at home. Rondo apparently fell at home and when he tried to brace his fall, he wound up breaking his hand. “The team confirmed that Rondo “underwent successful surgical fixation of a left metacarpal fracture” and said the “injury was a result of a fall at his home (Thursday) night.” He’s expected to miss the next six to eight weeks”. Rondo has been the subject on many trade rumors and an injury like this will put any of those talks on hold until he heals up. The Celtics need everyone they have this season after a ugly season last year.
As if he doesn’t already have enough going on with law enforcement, Adrian Peterson was recently investigated for sexual assault but was cleared of any wrongdoing. The complaint stemmed from an alleged incident back in 2011 in Minnesota where a woman claimed AP assaulted her, but Peterson said nothing happened that the woman did not want. After an investigation it appears Peterson was the one telling the truth.
He may be 45 years old, but Roy Jones Jr, is still collecting checks from fighting. He knocked out his opponent Hani Atiyo barely one minute into the fight with a left hook to the body. From the video the punch doesn’t look that hard, but it is easy for me to say that from where I am sitting. Hit the jump.
I can’t see Kobe being cool with this but there are reports that his wife Vanessa, will be joining the cast of the “Real Housewives Of Orange County” starting next season. She really does not strike me as the type to be all caught up in the nonsense and ignorance of most reality television shows, but who knows, anything is possible in Hollywood. The show is looking for a new face and it appears they have zeroed in on Vanessa. Hit the jump.
Seeing Lebron in a Cavs jersey still feels weird, but the excitement it is causing heading into this NBA season has not been matched since when Bron bolted Cleveland for the better weather in South Beach. Today was Cavs media day and it was the first time in over four years that Lebron was wearing the Cavs colors and if you are a fan of that team you gotta be more than ready for this season to start. Bron spoke on many topics during the media day, focusing on the fact he needed to ask permission from his kids to move back to Cleveland and you can tell he is dead serious. It is all in the past now and Bron and these Cavs are ready for the season to start along with the rest of us. Hit the jump.
Mario Chalmers better reign in whatever way he is feeling about Lebron. During media day today he decided to take a slight jab at Bron and act almost as if he was nobody. Although it was just a small little jab, you know he was feeling like he wanted to say more and thought better of it. This would be the second time this off season that Chalmers talked about Bron in not so favorable of a light. Chalmers better realize Lebron is basically the only reason he has enjoyed a decent and successful career up to this point. If you think Lebron won’t remember this when the Cavs & Heat play you better think again. Check out the tweet from one of the members of the media covering the Heat for media day and how Chalmers referred to Bron!
There were alot of stars on hand last night for an erotic party at the Penthouse nightclub in West Hollywood last night. Boobie Gibson looked like he was enjoying himself without Keyshia being around, while Meagan Good, Vivica A Fox, and other well known stars were in the building. The party was complete with a see through glass shower with some very attractive women keeping guests entertained. Pistons Brandon Jennings made sure he jumped in a pic with his new boo as well. Hit the jump.
