Diddy is almost in the clear from his assault on UCLA assistant coach, Sal Alosi. The district attorney for L.A. county declined to bring any felony charges against him, despite him initially being charged with assault with a deadly weapon and making terroristic threats.
Let us know how you really feel Coach K! I’m not sure how close of friends Coach K and Phil Jackson are, but it’s safe to say Phil is not going to be a fan of Mike Krzyzewski’s criticism of the triangle offense that Mr. Eleven rings continues to shove down the throats of Knicks fans and players.
At one point Al Harrington was the main piece on the New York Knicks playing some of the best basketball in his career, averaging 19.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 32.7 minutes per game in those two seasons. Unfortunately those were still dark times for the Knicks and they didn’t make the playoffs in either season. Dark times have struck the Knicks again. Many fans were looking forward to this offseason as the Knicks had the No. 4 draft pick and plenty of money to spend during free agency. They chose Kristaps Porzingis in the draft and struck out on coveted free agent Greg Monroe who chose the Milwaukee Bucks instead, despite the Knicks offering the same amount of money. Since the Knicks still haven’t picked up anyone significant, Harrington hit Twitter to show his interest and confusion about players not wanting to play in the “Mecca”.
There were reports a while back about Drake and Serena Williams hooking up. Well it looks like the two may be relighting the flame as Drake was spotted at Wimbledon to watch his old boo light up the court before leaving with the tennis champion.
The fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao netted about $600 million, making it the most lucrative fight in boxing history. The bout made the two boxers record breaking amounts of money but Pacquiao’s net take will be significantly reduced after paying off his promoter, Bob Arum and Top Rank, a fee that Mayweather doesn’t have since he owns his own company. So how much did Mayweather make? Enough to eclipse the careers of NBA legends in the making.
NBA free agency kicked off yesterday and it’s already been pretty crazy. Greg Monroe was a coveted free agent by the Knicks but after meeting with them and the Lakers, he ultimately decided to roll with the Milwaukee Bucks! Yup times are changing.
