Kobe’s back-handed comments after the game probably didn’t squash any of th ongoing animosty between the two former teammates, but now a fan has posted a court-side video from the game where you can clearly hear Kobe calling Dwight “Soft as a mother****er.” Read More »

Steve Ballmer, Clippers Fans

We’ve always been suckers for a good hype video. This year’s Clippers team has a new owner, a coach and GM under a new long-term deal, and they’re dreaming of a Larry O’Brien trophy in their not-too-distant future. After suffering the ignominy of working for Donald Sterling, and after the painful, drawn-out process leading to his decades-late exit, a supercharged former Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, is now sitting at the top of the Clippers’ hierarchy. Their new ad compaign launching tonight, like their new owner, should enliven even the most detached NBA fans. Read More »

Carmelo Anthony, Taylor Swift, Amaré Stoudemire

Apparently Carmelo Anthony isn’t comfortable letting people believe he’s a fan of Taylor Swift. In a photo of the New York Knicks megastar, teammate Amar’e Stoudemire, and the 1989 singer, Anthony affects a blasé attitude befitting a man that doesn’t bang hits like “Love Story,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” and “Shake It Off.” But we’re not buying it. Swift’s tunes are too catchy for even a man of ‘Melo’s cool to not cue up on occasion. Read More »
