Eric Bledsoe Says He Was Tipped Before Game About Nerlens Noel’s Hard Foul

Eric Bledsoe, Nerlens Noel

Last night Nerlens Noel dropped Eric Bledsoe to the hardwood not more than 30 seconds into the Suns-76ers game in Philadelphia. This came after Bledsoe had said his alum, Kentucky, could beat the 0-12 Sixers in a seven-game series. It was an embarrassing proclamation, even if some believe there’s some truth to his belief. Well, it seems Bledsoe knew the hard foul was coming since a 76ers player tipped him off about it before the game began. Read More »

Rookie K.J. McDaniels’ Mom On Sixers: “Yes They Are Tanking F**king Over My Son”

K.J. McDaniels

The Philadelphia 76ers are 0-11 to start the season and it’s getting so bad some people think a dominant college program could beat them in a seven-game series (they can’t). Second round pick (No. 32 overall) K.J. McDaniels has been along for Philly’s awful opening ride in his first experience as an NBA player. But things might be getting a whole lot worse for the rook after his mom took to Twitter last night without a filter to lament her son’s lost season. Read More »

Stan Van Gundy Benches Josh Smith After “Jawing Session” About Defense

Stan Van Gundy

It wasn’t just Markieff Morris and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope who got into it last night during the Suns-Pistons game. It seems Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy and forward Josh Smith had a verbal altercation when J Smoove was subbed out with a few minutes left in the third quarter. He did not return in the 88-86 Suns win. Read More »

Justin Timberlake To Man Calling Him Bandwagon Grizzlies Fan: “I’m An Owner”

Justin Timberlake

River city native and Memphis Grizzlies part-owner Justin Timberlake is psyched about his team’s start to the 2014-2015 season. After the Grit ‘N Grind crew dispatched of the Houston Rockets last night to gain the league’s best record at 10-1, the “Mirrors” singer expressed droll excitement on Twitter. But his followers were immediately dubious, questioning the timing of Timberlake’s Grizzlies fandom. He wasn’t having it, and responded in pretty awesome fashion. Read More »

Kevin Durant Repeatedly Tells Dwight Howard, “You’re A Pu**y”

Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant

Last night’s Thunder-Rockets game was ugly. Houston scored 24 points in the first quarter, and it was the only time either time exceeded 20 points in a quarter; Houston then scored only nine in the third session. The Rockets did, however, get the win when James Harden hit a huge step-back three-pointer with 1:19 remaining to give them a 68-65 advantage they never relinquished. The ugliness of the game mirrored the junk Kevin Durant was slinging towards Dwight Howard from the sidelines. Read More »

Video: Hulk Hogan Tries To Hype Up Warriors Crowd

Hulk Hogan

A long time ago, we owned a Hulk Hogan Wrestling Buddy, and we used to mimic the Hulkster with our friends — who all had the Ultimate *Warrior* Wrestling Buddy. Last night, when the Warriors beat the Brooklyn Nets, Hogan was on hand to take over Golden State’s Twitter account and give a largely ignored speech to the Bay area crowd in an effort to get them excited for the upcoming Wrestlemania 31 (aka Wrestlemania Play).

Michael Carter-Williams Starts With A Jam, Then Gets Into Spat With Coach

Michael Carter-Williams

Michael Carter-Williams made his return last night for a Sixers team that had dropped their first seven games of the season. His presence didn’t do much to affect the woeful team from Philly, though, and MCW even got into it with coach Brett Brown after he failed to get back on defense. Read More »
