As much as I despise the Celtics and Paul Pierce ( I am a Knicks fan ) I still show love when its due. This is definitely one of those times. Some Celtics fans got the chance of a lifetime when they were selected to play HORSE with the Celtics captain and future hall of famer. The contest was sponsored by the Massachusetts Lottery and the fans seemed to love every second of it. Pierce himself was very engaging with the fans, joking and having a good time with it. Check the video below to see if any of the fans were able to beat Pierce.

Last night, Kobe and his gorgeous wife Vanessa, attended the celebration of Hublot’s new ambassador for the luxury watch company. The guest of honor was Kobe himself and Vanessa was there to hold him down through it. The party was the celebration of Hublot signing Kobe to be part of the company as an ambassador which will mean attending some events in the future, taking pictures, signing autographs, all things the black mamba does on a daily basis anyway. Check out the lovely couple looking good in the gallery after the jump.
Congratulations Kyle Ahrens. You are now a viral video sensation. This dunk was even featured on ESPN. Ahrens and his Versailles, Ohio high school were playing a game in the state semi-finals. The 10th grader got the ball on a fast break and took off, literally! Ahrens really got up for this dunk, and in the process embarrassed a defender from the other team. Check out the dunk after the jump.
Apple has added a two-step verification feature for your Apple ID. It is an optional security measure that requires users to verify their identity using a device before they can sign into Apple ID to manage account. Also you would have to follow the two-step verification in order to make iTunes, App Store, or iBookstore purchase from a new device and get Apple ID-related support from Apple. Turning on the two-step verification reduces the possibility of unauthorized changes to users accounts.

The ever elusive Dr. Dre says he’s inspired to get back in the studio now and he’s doing some different things with himself. At this point anything he puts out will have all ears on it, just look at his Beats franchise that changed the headphone landscape from an audio aspect to a fashionable iconic status. He spoke briefly about a music subscription service he’s been working on called Daisy and from what I hear it’s supposed to be huge and should be available at the years end. It seems Dre can do no wrong after 30 years in the music industry. In a phone call with Big Boy on Power 106 in LA he also said that Eminem was wrapping up his next album. Dre said sometimes it’s hard for him to feel inspired to get in the studio but now he’s just enjoying life and getting back to his first love, the music. He didn’t mention Detox so don’t hold your breath but I expect some smash production by Dre to come out this year for sure. Hit the jump for more.
