    In a couple of weeks LeBron James will join the Cleveland Cavaliers’s training camp and begin his quest to bring a real, honest-to-God professional sports championship to the city of Cleveland. Yesterday, however, he had some other business to attend to at the Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. That business? Unveiling the brand new Nike LeBron 12 sneaker. The […]

    The New NBA 2K Introductions, Brought to Us by LeBron James (Video)

    The new NBA 2K introductions are here. At least they are for the Cleveland Cavaliers. How do we know? Because LeBron James was nice enough to share them with us. He could have picked any NBA team, but he picked HIS team. Kinda selfish, but not a surprise. The graphics look…ok. Not amazing, but better […]

    Danny Ferry Audio Gives You The Racist Remarks Firsthand (Video)

    Finally, the Danny Ferry audio recording has surfaced, allowing us to hear his allegedly racist comments regarding Luol Deng firsthand. Without reliving too much of what was said, Danny Ferry, a former NBA player with the Cleveland Cavs, made an insensitive (at the least) remark about Luol Deng having “some African in him” as a […]

    DeMarcus Cousins Stops JUST Short of Punching Jonas Valanciunas (Video)

    DeMarcus Cousins exercised something we haven’t seen a lot of recently in sports: restraint. After receiving an elbow to the throat from Spain’s Jonas Valanciunas, DeMarcus came up swinging. Almost. He stopped himself at the proverbial 11th hour, possibly aware he was on a global stage surrounded by lots of cameras covering the FIBA World […]

    LeBron James 9/11 Tweet Gets Truly Baffling (and Gross) Response

    A Lebron James 9/11 Tweet reminded us, once again, that no good deed goes unpunished. After a brief, heartfelt mention of 9/11 and its significance, Lebron James‘ 9/11 Tweet was met with a surprising, and truly disgusting, response. Of course, the response was made all the more vulgar because it was in response to United […]

    He Does It Again: The Jeremy Lin Wax Statue Prank FTW (Video)

    If you thought that Madame Tussaud’s in San Francisco was missing a Jeremy Lin wax statue…so did Jeremy Lin. In another of his glorious line of pranks, Lin took to the tourist trap to pose as a Jeremy Lin wax statue, only to scare the crap out of those that cozied up to him/it. At […]

    Roy Hibbert Witnesses Police Officer Giving Boots to a Homeless Man (Pic)

    Strictly speaking, a police officer giving boots to a homeless man has nothing to do with sports. However, when that act of charity is witnessed and then publicized by a very famous professional athlete—in this case, Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert—then it kinda becomes a sports story, doesn’t it? Hibbert was driving around Indianapolis on […]

    Manny Pacquio Is Way Better at Basketball than Singing (Video)

    The other day I said Manny Pacquiao was a renaissance man who, in addition to being one of the greatest boxers in the world, was also a politician, pro basketball player, and a fantastic singer. Of course, I was lying about the singing part. Pacquiao really does have a few records to his name, but […]

    Brittney Griner Delivers First Dunk in WNBA Playoffs History (Video)

    Brittney Griner has made a lot of history in her relatively short professional basketball career.

Then she came out as gay in 2013, and in 2014 she announced she is engaged to fellow […]
