Chris Bosh is the butt of alot of jokes, but today we need to keep him and his family in our thoughts as he battles a potentially very serious health issue. Bosh was admitted to a hospital in Miami last night after having chest pains and other symptoms and it turns out it could be worse than imagined.
DeAndre Jordan attempted to put on a one man show last night against the Spurs. He hurt the feelings of Marco Belinelli with a vicious throw down, that was literally more of a throw down than a dunk, but still left Marco looking up at the arena ceiling. DeAndre was feeling good after that because a short time later he attempted to jump over the seven-foot Tim Duncan, and almost pulled it off. Had he finished the dunk it would have been one of the best dunks in history!
Marshawn Lynch barely speaks publicly, but when it does you can believe it is something he is passionate about. TMZ dug up footage of Beast Mode speaking from the heart at The New Parish in his hometown of Oakland, CA in the summer of 2014. Lynch tells the crowd he’s extremely proud to “represent where I’m from on the national mother f**king stage” … but says, “I’ve been losing too many of ya’ll.” Marshawn is obviously referring to the fact that Oakland is consistently ranked among the most dangerous cities in the country … and had the 2nd highest rate of violent crime in 2014. “We need to be here for each other,” Lynch said … who also explained why it’s IMPERATIVE that the young people hear his message. This is the Marshawn the media needs to take the time to get to know.
You can pretty much kill any rumors you may have heard after Floyd Mayweather spoke with David Aldridge during the NBA All Star game. You knew Aldridge was going to have to ask about the fight and the rumors that he and Pacquiao agreed to a $250 million dollar fight. Floyd flat out said that was false and that neither himself or Manny have signed anything, which disputes everything we have been told about Manny allegedly already signing. At this point nobody even wants to hear about who hasn’t signed what. Let us know when something is actually signed.
The 49th NBA All Star game did not disappoint the fans at all, with the West winning a shootout 163-158 over the East. Russell Westbrook and Lebron James both set the tone early, with Russ finishing with 41 points and taking home the MVP trophy. James Harden, Steph Curry and many other players all showed out and the fans in attendance and watching on tv got to see a show. Check out some of the best plays of the game.
The injury filled era of Amar’e Stoudemire with the Knicks appears to be over. According to reports, just a little while ago he agreed to a buyout with the team. After the buyout, he will become eligible to sign with any team, and the Spurs, Mavs and possibly Warriors are all favorites to add the veteran for a playoff run.
The stars are putting on the type of show you might expect to see at the Mecca of it all, as the West leads at halftime 83-82 over the East. There have been some dope plays so far, including Lebron setting things off with a tough alley oop, which was eventually followed by Steph Curry & James Harden hooking up for a mean throw down as well. Russell Westbrook is the star of stars so far though with 27 points and a couple jaw dropping plays.
New York City and MSG are considered the Mecca of basketball, but we all know New York is the Mecca of hip hop as well. With that said, what other better way to set this night off than with a performance from one of the greatest ever, NAS!! Sure Christina Aguilera actually opened up the show, but once she introduced Nas she was pretty much forgotten about. Nothing like hearing “New York State of Mind” at an event that has the focus of the world right now. With the opening performance so dope, hopefully it’s a prelude to the rest of the night being amazing as well.
For the first time in a while, NBA fans can say All Star Saturday night is back! After a immensely deep field in the three point contest didn’t disappoint us, we had to wonder would we get another crappy dunk contest to cap the night? It started off shaky with the first two dunkers, but then Victor Oladipo and Zach Lavine saved the night. Oladipo set it off with a dope 540 degree dunk that brought the crowd to their feet and rightly so! But then Zach Lavine shut down all hope of anyone else winning besides himself with some of the best dunks in YEARS!!
Steph Curry went OFF in the final round of the three point contest, finishing with a score of 27, as he out-dueled fellow splash brother, Klay Thompson & Kyrie Irving to claim the trophy in the Barclays Center. This was easily the most anticipated shootout in years and it damn sure did not disappoint! Check out what Steph did in the finals! Trust me, tonight EVERYONE has the Drake line in their head……Steph Curry with the shot!
