This is one of those “C’mon Man” type of stories, smh. If you can’t afford to live a luxurious lifestyle then don’t fake it. Milwaukee Bucks OJ Mayo, who has made millions during his career is being sued by a private jet company for not only ditching out on the fare price, but also using drugs on the flight. The company claims the employees were put at risk by his drug use, but they never specify what drug. I can only assume the Bucks don’t want to hear something like this.
New Surveillance footage from the night Ray Rice hit his then fiance’, Janay Rice, was released by ABC and at least on video it appears the couple really wasn’t upset with each other by the time security and police step in. You can see the couple talking as security approaches and separates them. As time passes police eventually show up and take them right back into the same elevator but instead of punches, they exchange kisses between each other. Both Ray & Janay are put in cuffs, with charges against Janay eventually being dropped.
It will always be one of those history questions about the NBA. Similar to when people ask who was drafted before Michael Jordan in 1984, people will always ask who was drafted ahead of Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade & Chris Bosh in the 2003 draft. The Pistons had the second pick that year and after the Cavs took Lebron, Detroit chose seven-footer Darko Milicic instead of those other guys and they are still kicking themselves till this day. Darko, a non-factor his entire career until he realized he was never going to amount to anything and retired, is still an athlete, but in a much more violent sport. He had his first pro kickboxing match this week, a match he lost after a huge gash opened on his leg. Check the video. Maybe he has finally found his calling. Sorry, Pistons.
President Obama is feeling the wrath of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco! Well not really, but the POTUS got him confused with actor James Franco while speaking about the movie “The Interview”. The president was talking about the Sony cyber attack and the movie saying, “a satirical movie starring Seth Rogen and James FLACCO. I love Seth, I love James.” Flacco couldn’t resist the urge to mess with the leader of the free world and threw a couple funny jabs at him via twitter. He even welcomes James Franco to the family since their names get confused. Check the gallery!
The Toronto Raptors have been climbing the competitive ladder in the NBA, especially in the eastern conference and honestly they look like a total different team than the Raptors of years passed. They must feel the same way because they are changing their logo and unveiling new uniform’s in the near future so it really will be a new Raptors team. Drake was in on the new logo design phase, being the ambassador and all it was only right. Check out the video below and the pictures in the gallery. I like the new design, it looks more sleek and more meaner than before.
This is a dope story of athletes trying to do all they can for something they believe in. As you all know last month prior to a game, a few members of the St.Louis Rams came out with their hands raised showing their support for the “Hands up, Don’t Shoot” protests that were going on around the country as a result of what happened between Mike Brown and officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson. Well even though the local police tried to scold them they decided to take a step further and help out.
Olympic hero Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in U.S. history plead guilty to drunken driving in Baltimore almost three months after he was arrested. For agreeing to the plea deal he avoided jail time and was instead sentenced to 18 months of probation. The 18-time gold medalist was arrested on Sept. 30. Documents show that the 29-year-old Phelps was leaving the Horseshoe Casino in downtown Baltimore when he was pulled over for speeding and crossing the double yellow line while driving in a tunnel. Police say Phelps registered a .14 percent on a blood-alcohol test. The legal limit to drive is .08 percent in Maryland. Phelps was arrested for the same thing back in 2004 as well. Hopefully he learned his lesson.
These ain’t Nike’s or any other Air Jordan’s you might be used to, but sneakers MJ wore during his freshman year at UNC fetched about $33,000 at auction this week. The sky blue Converse to match the UNC colors were auctioned off this week along with other sports collectibles. How many pairs of Jordan’s have you ever heard sell for this much? By now the sneakers obviously aren’t in great shape, but Michael did sign them and for being 30 years old they actually don’t look too bad. Definitely a nice piece of sports history to own. Check the pics.
This looked like they had so much fun and I wish I was there. Nicki Minaj has been going hard promoting her album “The Pinkprint” and in the process she has been converting some sports fans into Nicki fans with all her appearances lately on sports related programs. Last night on Inside the NBA, Her, Shaq, Grant Hill, Kenny Smith and host Ernie Johnson popped off with a freestyle cypher that was hilarious and entertaining. Nicki obviously killed them all but the guys were too damn funny. Shaq at one point asks Nicki to marry him while he is rapping and he uses her answer immediately in the next line and has everyone on the show dying. Whoever has Nicki on all these shows is a very smart person! Check out the cypher and pics.
