There is definitely profit to be made in everything these days. Tom Brady and The New England Patriots’ infamous Deflategate scandal has opened the doors for some interesting purchases. One of the under inflated balls from the AFC championship game has sold for about $44,000!
Michael Jordan has already been inducted into the NBA’s Hall Of Fame with the 2009 class but he will be able to add another achievement to his list. Yesterday, the International Basketball Federation announced that he will be inducted into their Hall Of Fame as well.
When you are a popular athlete or celebrity, dealing with internet trolls is just part of life. It is a small price of business that will always be around, that comes when you gain wealth and notoriety. Now just because they accept that they will be there, doesn’t mean they have to stay shut. Case in point today would be Desean Jackson, who threatened someone making disrespectful comments about his girl and soon to be mother of his child, Kayla Phillips. This situation wasn’t too crazy but there is going to come a time where someone finds a troll in real life and I bet from that point on the crazy talk on the internet will relax a bit.

I love seeing nostalgic sports videos like this. The fact it’s about the GOAT just makes it even better. Someone got Michael Jordan on video, playing in a pickup game in 1986 on the UNC campus. This was just after he fully healed from breaking his foot which caused him to miss most of his second season. The killer instinct was on display even back then.
Cardale Jones has garnered himself a little reputation on twitter for just basically trying to holla at everyone. He is using the notoriety he gained last year with Ohio State to the max, to become more of a household name. During the ESPY awards he tried his luck with Ronda Rousey and she actually responded. I’m not saying anything but it sounds like Cardale might have a chance.
Authorities say the girlfriend of former NFL player Buster Barnett kidnapped and killed his wife and then killed herself. Clayton County police say 49-year-old Sandra Barnett was kidnapped by Lisa Brown at her Ellenwood home on Wednesday afternoon.
Ty Lawson‘s trade value — already not very high, Denver has been trying to move him since the draft to no avail — plummeted this week when he was arrested for his second DUI this year. But according to reports some teams are still interested in him.
