The Rock Stopped By ESPN’s ‘Numbers Never Lie’ To Talk ‘Hercules’ And His Diet

YouTube Numbers Never Lie hosts Jemele Hill and the finger-locked Michel Smith recently conducted an action hero draft, and neither one of them thought to select any of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s characters. Instead, Hill kept things relevant with Chuck Norris while Smith picked Robert Downey Jr.’s character from Tropic Thunder, and I’m sure that the show’s fans loved...

Rondo talks about Melo and Love during appearance on ESPN’s “Numbers Never Lie”

Rajon Rondo made an appearance on ESPN’s “Numbers Never Lie” earlier today, with host Jemele Hill.  It wasn’t laced with typical athlete clichés, as Rondo’s public commentary rarely is.  While they discussed some of his incredible career triple-double numbers and how they rank with the likes of Magic Johnson and LeBron James, the discussion did get around to both Carmelo...

Caption the Photo: Old Lady Not Impressed by Johnny Manziel on Flight

This really is just more funny than anything else, but here is Johnny Manziel riding the middle seat probably on his way back from Vegas. The image of him being squeezed in with that older lady is just priceless.

Video: ESPN debates whether LeBron James or Larry Bird was better in their prime

Not sure why ESPN decided to debate this topic now and obviously we're a little biased over here, but Jemele Hill thinking LeBron James is a better player than Larry Bird was in his prime is nonsense. As Michael Smith contested (not the Michael Smith of WTHHT legend), "Larry Bird was the baddest son of a gun on the planet."LeBron is a polarizing figure, but I give...
