DeShawn Stevenson

The bad history between LeBron James and DeShawn Stevenson is well-known. Soulja Boy. Jay-Z. Cleveland. Washington. It’s safe to say no one thought they’d ever be teammates, even after Stevenson tried to squash the beef just before their matchup in the 2011 NBA Finals (Stevenson was with Dallas; LeBron had moved on to Miami). Still, no one expected this: Stevenson took to Twitter this weekend to say he’s trying to become LeBron’s teammate in Miami. Read More »

Amir Johnson

The NBA is synonymous with style. Whether it’s the prime kicks the players are rocking or the clothes they’re wearing before games, after games or on red carpets, basketball and fashion have teamed up more and more as the game has achieved a larger prominence in American popular culture (bizarrely, this has all happened under the dictatorial watch of David Stern, but that irony is a post for another time). With all that being said, NBA players aren’t limited to just the clothes and accessories most people associate with style. They’ve also used their own bodies to showcase individuality that can be lost when everyone is wearing the same uniform on the court. Read More »

Derrick Rose Won’t Be Rushed; DeShawn Stevenson Fires Back at Deron Williams; Jeremy Lin Gets Destroyed

Derrick Rose

In their last preseason win over Memphis, Kirk Hinrich morphed into a red-faced monster for a five or six minute span of the third quarter, and while he had the whole crowd in the Windy City on its feet, they have to know it’s not always going to be that easy in the CHI this year. Luckily for Bulls fans, Derrick Rose told ESPN Chicago he’s not only ahead of schedule, but also that he plans to come back when he’s ready to play as opposed to sitting out the season. Read More »
