I’m actually pretty disappointed in James Harden & Dwight Howard. These two guys are more self absorbed with themselves than they appear. Earlier this month Chandler Parsons decided to sign a new three year contract with the Dallas Mavericks after the Rockets decided not to match the Mavs offer of $46 million. Questions immediately arose about if the Rockets would feel the effects of losing Parsons who was a solid contributor on the team and is on the cusp of all-star appearances. Both Howard & now Harden have kinda thrown Parsons under the bus and downplayed his skills and made themselves seem like they are on a mountain looking down on the rest of their teammates. It got to Parsons so bad that even his brother jumped on twitter and got personal towards Harden. Hit the jump.
I guess this sounds legit right? A older couple is blaming their lack of sex in the relationship on the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings! Confused? Yes you should be. The couple says things have not been the same since they went to a birthday party for their granddaughter back in January. The party was held at the L.A. Kings Icetown sports center in Riverside, CA where according to reports, a puck came flying at the head of the wife, Trina Adam and knocked her out cold. They claim there has been many after affects from that day that are hurting their relationship. Hit the jump.
This young man just can’t seem to keep his head on straight and stay focused. Justin Blackmon, who if we are going off talent alone has the potential to be one of the best receiver’s in the NFL was arrested again yesterday for marijuana possession and this time the whole ordeal is captured on police dash cam. Blackmon was already currently suspended indefinitely from the Jacksonville Jaguars for violating the NFL drug policy and adding this arrest to that situation is making things really bad for him. He has continued to have trouble off the field the past few years and it is likely he will be suspended for this entire upcoming NFL season. Hit the jump.
People need to really get a life of their own. Who even has the time to do something like this. According to reports, someone claiming to be Daniel Gibson filed divorced papers to end the marriage he has with wife Keyshia Cole. The couple has been having problems for a while now and it seems Keyshia has been ready to end things but just hasn’t actually done it yet. When these fake papers were filed she was reportedly shocked, but Gibson says it wasn’t him and he would never file for divorce. Hit the jump.
Chris Paul is playing no games with current Clippers owner Donald Sterling! Ever since his racist remarks were leaked to the world a few months ago, the NBA has been doing all it can to remove Sterling from control of the Clippers. Previously Chris Paul and Doc Rivers had mentioned the idea of boycotting but that scenario went somewhat quiet for a while. With the end of summer approaching fast and training camps arriving before we know it, CP3 is once again talking boycott if Sterling still has control of the team when players report back. The way Sterling is handling things in the courtroom it is very likely he still will be the owner for a while before anything is settled and that does not sit right with Paul.
Everyone knows Dwight Howard & Kobe Bryant never really got along as teammates on the Lakers. There has been rumors to things that may or may not of happened but Dwight & Kobe themselves never really gave specifics on their relationship. Fans and media have gathered enough info on their own but there is nothing that compares to hearing it from someone directly involved. Phil Jackson knows exactly what happened including the details on the private meeting that occurred prior to Dwight choosing to sign with Houston.
Nick Young had to be there to support his girl Iggy after the BET awards. By now everyone knows the rumors and whispers that Nicki Minaj threw a shot towards Iggy when she made comments about female rappers not writing their own lyrics and how she was the realest and basically the queen of this rap game. She said she wasn’t talking about anyone specific but people gonna assume what they want anyway. Apparently it affected Iggy after the show but Nick was there to hold her down. Hit the jump.
Dez Bryant usually can back up what he says on the field. So when he says Richard Sherman wouldn’t dare talk to him the way he talked about Michael Crabtree he might be feeling some type of way. But he says it is all out of respect and not much else. A cameraman caught Dez while he was out eating and asked him what he felt about Sherman. Hit the jump.
Most running backs in the NFL don’t enjoy being hit by Packers linebacker AJ Hawk, so why would this crazy fan ask for it? A guy in the crowd at a celebrity golf outing literally begged to get hit by Hawk and he got what he asked for. I am surprised Hawk actually did it cause if he would of somehow got a freak injury from driving dude into the ground then it would of been the worst. The guy took a pretty good hit too. Hit the jump.
Lebron may be back in Cleveland but he still doesn’t know what jersey number to go with. He was obviously #23 with the Cavs in his first stint with the team before changing to number 6 with the Miami Heat. The number 6 is also is team USA number. James’ website, LeBronJames.com, briefly showed him in a No. 6 jersey, but that was soon replaced. James took to social media Friday to get the input of his fans. Sources have told ESPN that James was also considering No. 32, which he wore his freshman year of high school when 23 wasn’t available. The people who are waiting his decision the most are retailers looking to cash in on the influx of jersey sales that will occur once he makes up his mind. Hit the jump.
