Let’s start this off by clearing something up. Kevin Durant is not saying Kobe is better than Michael Jordan. He is just saying that they are on the same level when it comes to skill. Believe me, there is a difference. In a recent interview, KD gave the Black Mamba high praise and you could tell he really means it.
Devin Brooks of Creighton University may forever be known even if he doesn’t play in the pros one day. During the Big East tournament last night at Madison Square Garden, he threw an assist to a teammate that you couldn’t draw up a million times if you tried. It led to a wide open three pointer as Creighton started to pull away. Check it out.
This looks like it seriously hurt. I don’t think people realize how much contact can happen between two NBA players when one of them is trying to take a charge. Another grown man coming at you full speed just to run directly into you takes some guts. In this case it also took some blood as well. Bulls Mike Dunleavy held his ground as Rockets Chandler Parson drove to the rim. Unfortunately for Dunleavy he caught a mean elbow in the process and looked like he just finished a 12 round fight. But he was tough. Went and got stitched up and came back and scored 21 points after the play. Hit the jump.
Knicks fans will not want to hear this. It is already bad enough that Carmelo Anthony will be a free agent and places like the Lakers and Bulls have been mentioned as serious destinations for him. The Bulls have the better overall team so that seems to be the more likely place if Melo was to leave the Knicks. But now an even better team is saying they are going to go after him as well. Hit the jump.
Richard Sherman seems to have gotten under more peoples skin than he may of thought. Yesterday he had a back and forth on twitter with patriots running back LeGarrette Blount about who was the best cornerback in the NFL. Now he has a debate going back and forth with DeAngelo Hall who actually plays the same position. Things got personal between these two. Hit the jump.
Fans are usually very passionate about their teams, especially when it comes to college sports. But there is a difference between passion and ignorance. 22 year old Tyler Austin Black is a diehard Kentucky basketball fan and got a tattoo to prove it. Problem is he got a tattoo saying “2014 national Champions” but Kentucky has no shot in hell of winning the title. He even went as far as to spell the word national with “Nati9nal” which signifies that it would be Kentucky’s 9th title. He tried to put a positive spin on it saying “It’s part of my story. If we don’t win, I’ll remember it as the year so many thought we could do it and we didn’t.” Hit the jump for the pics.
The things people do for money, smh. Liz Dickson, who was working at a playboy golf tournament back in 2012 is now suing Playboy and the golfer after a stunt went wrong. She claims she was instructed to lay on her stomach and comedian/golfer Kevin Klein was going to hit a golf ball off of her a**. Things didn’t exactly work out as expected. Hit the jump.
For those that do not know, Magic Johnson is known for tweeting the most obvious things on twitter but doing it as if he is dropping knowledge. He is repeatedly made fun of by followers who see his tweets and have to let him know about himself. But a tweet that he sent yesterday about the Miami Heat and the Spurs might literally be the most obvious thing someone could say about a basketball team. You have to scratch your head sometimes with Magic cause you know he is worth alot of money, but he just doesn’t seem too intelligent. He was smart enough to get his worth where it is today though so I guess he has to have a brain in there somewhere. Hit the jump for his tweet.
These are the type of stories I love to see. Five year old Miyah is battling cancer and her only wish to feel happy at the moment is to meet Nicki Minaj and get a pink wig from her. Lucky for Miyah she has a friend in a high place. John Wall did his best to make the wish come true for Miyah going on Instagram and getting the word out to Nicki. It did not take long for Nicki to reply to the little princess. Check the jump for the photo and video.
More details have become available regarding a former Detroit Lions player being hired as a hitman to kill someone. He was allegedly hired by a skin care specialist with numerous celebrity clients to kill one of her competitors. The woman, Dawn DaLuise is in jail being held on $1 million dollars bail after bragging to a friend about hiring Chris Geile, who played for the Lions in 1987. Hit the jump.
