Matt Barnes has to be going crazy in his mind knowing he wants to hit Derek Fisher n the face tonight but he can’t do it. He is doing the next best thing by venting how he is feeling with his words and if you know Barnes, you know he has never had a filter.
Iman Shumpert is back at it, dropping a mixtape on what was supposed to be the birthday of his new babygirl. She was born a little early but most importantly healthy, so Shump is celebrating in his own way. A couple of the tracks you have heard before but there is some new heat as well. Drop down below to give “Shumpman: The MD” a listen!
Former Nebraska star and NFL running back Lawrence Phillips was found dead in his prison cell earlier this week from an alleged suicide. I use the word alleged because the prison claims it was that but his friends and family are adamant that something else is going on because he was in good spirits, despite facing the rest of his life behind bars.
A very “prominent” player in the Grizzlies locker room has had enough of Jeff Green and from the sounds of things he is not the only one. Not sure how it got to this, considering Green was always a fan favorite and everyone was rooting for him after his heart surgery almost derailed his career but I guess time changes things.
I bet when Ronda Rousey uttered the words “Do Nothing Bitches” last year, she had no idea it would one day be the name of a movie she would co-star in. That is exactly what is happening after Universal Pictures signed off on the project.
Dez Bryant felt like letting the sneakerheads of the world know that they got alot of work to do to catch up to him. Dez, who has a deal with Jordan Brand, posted on his Instagram yesterday all the unreleased kicks he currently has. According to the picture all the kicks are the left shoe because that’s all he can wear at the moment thanks to his foot surgery. Included in the picture are the Black OVO 10’s, “Beach” Just Don x Jordan II, “Knicks” and “China” Jordan V Lows. The “Chicago” Jordan 1 Low was also among the group of kicks pictured. While peasants like us have to wait for release dates, Dez reminds us it’s good to have a plug. In his case, he has the ultimate plug. What’s scary is there is probably many more pairs he didn’t even put in the pictures. Check the gallery!
During the past week, ESPN has been releasing lists for the greatest players in NBA history at specific positions. Each category was narrowed down to a top ten of all time and as you might expect, the debates ensued. Regarding the small forward position, Lebron James was ranked #1 which is no surprise, followed by Larry Bird and other greats. Kevin Durant was ranked #4 which is outstanding considering he still has another 7-8 years to play but in his own humble mind, KD doesn’t think he belongs on any list like that just yet.
Apparently when OBJ isn’t making one handed catches against your favorite team, he is designing bookbags on the low. Beckham, along with Jarvis Landry and Jeremy Hill designed the bags in collaboration with an NYC company called Sprayground and the outcome was pretty cool.
Colin Kaepernick’s career in San Francisco was pretty much left for dead this past season. With the departure of coach Jim Harbaugh, Kap’s play severely declined. Harbaugh was the main guy who believed in him and worked with him and it gave him confidence. Without that system in place, Kap’s lack of certain skills really showed in what became a very disappointing season that eventually led to him being replaced. The team itself even put his jerseys and other merchandise on the clearance rack because nobody seemed to care anymore. Well the hiring of Chip Kelly may change things for Kap and his future for the better but it already is changing things off the field.
