Found October 26, 2011 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
PLAYERS: Al Harrington
TEAMS: Denver Nuggets
Idle time can lead to no good. Nuggets Forward Al Harrington decided to try his luck with the Bugsy Challenge. It’s an eating challenge that a Las Vegas burger spot in the Flamingo has involving a 4.5 pound burger and a 45 minute time limit. The Bugsy Challenge consists of a burger with six one-third-pound burger patties, six types of cheese (American, cheddar, pepper jack, fresh house-made mozzarella, Swiss and panko-crusted deep-fried provolone), chorizo, sautéed mushrooms, black and tan onion rings, three strips of applewood smoked bacon, three strips of cayenne peppered bacon and a fried egg, all oozing with Burger Joint’s special pink peppercorn aioli. This massive burger is accompanied by a cast iron skillet packed with two whole potatoes cut in wedges and deep fried, then smothered in cheddar cheese sauce, three-cheese blend, crumbled bacon, sliced green onions and topped with two strips of cayenne peppered bacon. The prize for completing the challenge? The meal is free… Se...

Harrington attempts giant burger challenge

Not too long ago we saw Al Harrington running through mud, crawling under barbed wire, and jumping over fire during an obstacle course event. He decided to put his body to a different kind of test recently. Harrington attempted to channel his inner Adam Richman by trying to complete the Bugsy Challenge at Burger Joint at Flamingo Las [...]

Al Harrington tries and fails to eat the best cheeseburger ever made

Last weekend Denver forward Al Harrington tried and failed to eat a six-cheese type of burger featuring two pounds worth of ground beef amongst other accoutrements, and this is both a good and bad thing. A good and not entirely inappropriate go-to joke during the lead-up and duration of this NBA lockout has asked us to guess at who will turn out to be the 2011 (or, more than likely...

The Assist: JR Smith’s Tattoo Honors Michael Jordan

Jr Smith is clearly apart of the “ink my whole body” crew. The latest tattoo pays homage to Michael Jordan. Jr has Jordan’s retired Bulls jersey and his jumpman logo squeezed into a random obscure spot on his stomach. Wait, I forgot the Jordan…2′s, I believe that’s the pair featured also. :shrug: When JR was with the Hornets he rocked #23 too. Tatted for life I guess...

Kim Kardashian Producers Called NBA Teams Looking For Single Men, Wanted To Date Danilo Gallinari Before Kris Humphires

Danilo Gallinari Was Asked to be Kim Kardashian’s Boyfriend Before Humphries?

Oh this Kim Kardashian + (insert athlete here) story line continues to get better and better. Recently we told you that Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were having marital trouble. That may be the case, but it’s likely a good thing for them because it helps keep Kim in the news. Anyway, on to more [...]

JR Smith Is A Tattoo Machine

 I’m beginning to think that JR Smith couldn’t stop getting tattoos if you paid him to stop. It’s tough to estimate just how many tattoos JR Smith has, but if you wanted to go ahead and say he that he has mad tattoos, you’d be correct sir. As you can see, no tattoo on his body can wear the number 23 as JR and his tattoo artist have retired Michael Jordan’s jersey too...

(Photo) Dang, Nuggets Forward J.R. Smith Sure Has A Lot Of Tattoos

Jeez Louise, there doesn’t appear to be one square inch on J.R. Smith’s upper torso that isn’t inked. He’s running out of skin, man. He’s like the medium character in Clive Barker’s “Book of Blood” only the ghosts that write their stories on his skin are dead tattoo artists. Note: Yes, I realize that Clive [...]

JR Smith Being Treated Well By Chinese Team

  Like former teammates Wilson Chandler and Kenyon Martin shooting guard JR Smith will be hooping it up in China this season. Another of Smith’s former teammates is playing overseas as well. Ty Lawson is in Lithuania and doesn’t appear to be enjoying it. Despite a frustrating start, it looks like JR is living quite [...]

J.R. Smith learning the good, bad of playing in China

The Chinese Basketball Association has an insanely high turnover rate for Western players who sign on. The basketball is different, but more so it’s the radical culture change that players struggle with, things like the food. J.R. Smith is getting some of that, but he’s adjusting. A fascinating post over at breaks down the…
