Carmelo Anthony was the only star on the New York Knicks but this year’s draft Kristaps Porzingis is gaining traction, FAST. It was assumed that Porzingis would be a project and it would take some time before he would become a substantial contributor but he’s shocked the world with his play and even has chants of his name ringing through Madison Square Garden. So is Anthony ready to pass the torch?
It seems like the enemy of my enemy is my friend type mess BUT Floyd Mayweather has been very supportive of Ronda Rousey since she was beat by Holly Holm (at least in the media). Following the fight, Mayweather linked up with Holm at the Clippers game and the two flicked it up. Now that she’s becoming a big star, Holm was also invited to the Canelo Alvarez vs. Miguel Cotto fight and was asked about meeting Mayweather.
Greg Hardy just can’t seem to get out of his own way but Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones might’ve finally gotten through to his defensive end. Jones met with Hardy last week to address the controversial comments he’s been making, changing his Twitter bio to declare himself innocent of the domestic violence charges and missing meetings and practices since the photos of his alleged victim were released.
Stephen Curry has been dazzling us all season but even the human highlight reel can get got. Curry put up 19 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists in 28 minutes to help the Golden State Warriors get the 118-105 win over the Denver Nuggets but he found himself on the wrong end of this highlight as rookie Emmanuel Mudiay hit him with a crossover.
New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and singer Trey Songz are MCM heaven for the ladies. The two hit up STORY in Miami and turned up in the club. It looks like good times were had by all.
Here we go, another top 5 list so let the debates begin. Tracy McGrady was quite the basketball player. Los Angeles Lakers rookie D’Angelo Russell even said (controversially) that he “might have been the GOAT.” So he knows a thing or two about NBA greats. He sat with ESPN and gave them his top 5 NBA players of all time, and he laid it out in the form of a lineup.
The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Portland Trailblazers 107-93 on Sunday, dropping them to 2-11 and the bottom of the Western Conference. The Golden State Warriors on the other hand beat the Denver Nuggets 118-105 on Sunday, bringing them to an NBA record tying (1993-94 Houston Rockets & 1948-49 Washington Capitols) 15-0 start at not only the top of the Western Conference but leading the league overall. On Tuesday night the Lakers and Warriors will face off. It’s expected by many that the Warriors will win and move up to a record breaking 16-0 start but can the Lakers pull off the upset?
A bad role model huh? While everyone is focusing on Cam Newton’s dancing and “bad sportsmanship”, he continues to be an awesome person and made another game very special for some little fans. The Carolina Panthers rolled over the Washington Redskins 44-16 on Sunday, moving up to an NFC and overall NFL best at 10-0 so far for the season. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton put 5 touchdowns on the board and gave each of the 5 touchdown balls to 5 very excited kids.
Jay Z and Beyonce were in the building watching as Roc Nation Sports fighter Miguel Cotto took on Canelo Alvarez in their highly anticipated bout. Unfortunately for the Roc crew, Alvarez won by unanimous decision.
