This is America people, the land of capitalism. A blizzard hit Buffalo dropping 70 inches of snow in some areas. That included Ralph Wilson stadium where the Bills were supposed to host the New York Jets today. The NFL decided to move the game to Detroit and hold it Monday night. Also as a good gesture, the league gave away free tickets to the game. They began distributing tickets at 10 a.m this morning but fans scooped up all 500 tickets — with a two-ticket limit per person — within 10 minutes. Of course some scalpers were there bright and early and scooped up a few and decided to sell the tickets they were given for free; ALL profit man
Uhhhh… what? The Detroit Pistons are currently 3-10 at the 14th spot in the Eastern Conference and it mostly because their offense is absolutely abysmal. The Pistons lack of offense is so bad and Brandon Jennings revealed a shocking reason why.
Oh JaVale McGee, Shaqtin’ a Fool has missed you so. It was only a matter of time before McGee got right back to his antics. On Friday night as the Denver Nuggets played the New Orleans Pelicans, McGee made one old lady’s night pretty special.
Yes, it’s still very early in the season but a lot is expected of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. He teamed up with Kyrie Irving and traded for Kevin Love to form a new “Big 3″ and super team. Unfortunately things haven’t quite worked out yet. They have a first-time NBA head coach in David Blatt and everyone is still trying to adjust to their new roles and playing together. The team is currently on a four-game losing streak and their latest loss came to the Toronto Raptors 110-93 on Saturday night. LeBron James has come forth saying that he isn’t setting a great example for the team and it definitely looks that way.
The Sacramento Kings beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 113-101 on Saturday night. DeMarcus Cousins came up huge once again with 31 points and 18 rebounds.

Shabazz Muhammad however may have had the highlight of the night.
Turns out Dwight Howard isn’t ducking Kobe Bryant (crazy people) or the media in his child abuse case, he genuinely is injured. There is no timetable for Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard’s return after he underwent platelet-rich plasma therapy to treat his strained right knee, coach Kevin McHale said before Saturday night’s 95-92 win against the Dallas Mavericks.
The main fear when reporting live is that you never know what’s going to happen. It can make for good TV or you can have a random person do something or scream something that shouldn’t be aired on live TV. Case in point, the “f*ck her right in the p*ssy” guy. It originated with Cincinnati’s CBS-affiliated WKRC-TV. While “reporting” on a local Ohio oil spill, the unidentified female reporter turns to an older man in a black hoodie for more insight on as to how locals are suffering. His response: “I was sitting on my front porch, grabbed a beer, and f*cked her right in the p*ssy!” The clip turned out to be a hoax as confirmed by the news station who says the woman is not affiliated with them. None the less, the clip still went viral with numerous people getting their 15 minutes of fame by repeating the phrase on live TV. And now here’ssss SportsCenter.
Famous Jameis is dominating headlines once again, and once again it’s for something negative. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston remains the most talked-about college football player in America and lately it appears all bad as the NFL Draft draws closer and closer. The defending national champion, Heisman Trophy winning quarterback led No. 3 Florida State to another comeback win Saturday, pulling out a not-so-pretty 20-17 win over Boston College but it was one thing he did during the game that had everyone talking.
Kobe Bryant signed a two-year, $48.5 million contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers making him the highest paid player in the league (before taxes & fees) at 36-years old.

Many people have been critical of the contract especially with star players like Tim Duncan and Dirk Nowitzki taking pay cuts. Well Kobe Bryant says he took a pay cut too!
