I’m sure it was all in good fun but Aaron Gordon didn’t have to hit that poor little girl with that crossover LOL. The No.4 pick in the draft, selected by the Orlando Magic, hosted the Magic FIT program. According to Magic.com, it was a “fitness and nutrition education program for youth”, and hundreds of children from local community centers joined in on the fun. Gordon ran drills with the kids and decided to play a little pickup game where he made the young girl hit the floor. Hopefully he’s ready to do that in the big leagues.
Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and his former fiancee Miss Jackson decided to part ways.

Several teams are vying for the chance to trade for Kevin Love from the Minnesota Timberwolves. So far the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors have all made substantial offers but Timberwolves coach and president of basketball operations, Flip Saunders hasn’t bit yet.

Stephen A Smith finds himself at odds with a colleague at the ESPN network today after his comments about domestic violence, which came after a discussion about Ravens running back Ray Rice. Michelle Beadle, who works at ESPN and usually hosts SportsNation said she if deeply offended by Stephen and “will never feel clean again” according to her. If you heard the show you know Stephen A was not trying to be offensive, he just didn’t word himself correctly. I am not defending him but it was clear the way Beadle tried to take it was not the way Stephen was trying to present it. Beadle herself said she was in an abusive relationship in the past said “I’m thinking about wearing a miniskirt this weekend…I’d hate to think what I’d be asking for by doing so @stephenasmith. #dontprovoke”. She is trying to turn it into something bigger than it is or was meant to be by Smith. She has also grandstanded in the past when the Jets signed Mike Vick she said she would no longer root for them if they like to employ people like him. Forget the fact Vick is changed person and that dog fighting issue was over six years ago. Do you guys think she has the right to take Smith’s comments to heart? Check the video.
Carmelo wants people to know he doesn’t care about money at this point, despite staying with a bad Knicks team for much more money. While speaking with reporters, he also let it be known how close he was to really signing with the Bulls and leaving NYC in his rear view.

Shaq is ready to make his return to the rap game, even if for just one short moment. Shaq is campaigning Pharrell to let him get on the soundtrack for the NBA 2K15 game. Pharrell has been given the task of laying down the tracks for the game and Shaq is making it clear he wants in. Check out what he had to say.
Damn, I can only imagine what Floyd is thinking right now. Nelly just posted a topless pic of Miss Jackson herself, referring to her as “homie” and wishing her a happy birthday. The pair have never officially said they have dated or had any relations, but this pic might speak for itself. There has been talk about them ever since they showed up together courtside for a Charlotte Bobcats game a few months back. Fans have been going crazy over the pic, making sure they @ Floyd on Instagram so he can see it. Hit the jump for the pic .

This is just mean, but still funny. Orlando Magic rookie Aaron Gordon was part of the team’s summer camp for kids this week and he gave a young camper a memory that she may want to forget. Gordon was dribbling she the young girl tried to play defense and he winds up spinning her around with the dribble until she drops to the court. He makes it worse by laughing about it after and walking off. I felt bad just watching lol. Hit the jump.
