WATCH: Charles Barkley gets 53 dozen donuts for his 53rd birthday

On Saturday, Charles Barkley will turn the ripe old age of 53. To help celebrate the big event — albeit a few days early — the wisenheimers among his “NBA on TNT” colleagues decided to pull a fast — and fattening — one on the man lovingly once referred to as the “Round Mound of Rebound.” An unsuspecting Barkley was escorted into a room where 53 (!) dozen Krispy Kreme...

Stephen Curry didn’t know exactly how to react to Kanye West giving him a Twitter shout-out recently. But the Golden Warriors sharpshooter ultimately decided to take it as a compliment, regardless the nature of the rapper’s patently peculiar musings. West of course has been a prolific — not to mention amusing, controversial, bizarre and outlandish — force on social media...

MMA fighter David Rickels got over loss by ‘masturbating violently’

MMA fighter David Rickels experienced a devastating loss last November and he recently admitted — while perhaps revealing a bit too much — to a reporter the unconventional and “hands-on” way he handled things in the aftermath of the letdown. The Bellator brawler Rickels was K.O.’ed by Michael Chandler in the second round of a Nov. 6 match, and shared with Mike Bohn that...

Dan Orlovksy mocks himself to salute Jared Allen on retirement

Dan Orlovsky’s NFL career arguably — and unfortunately — can be summed up in one boneheaded play involving newly retired Jared Allen. And in a sign of class and a demonstration of a fine sense of humor, Orlovsky used self-deprecation to salute the sackmaster on his phenomenal NFL career. The current Detroit Lions backup quarterback was under center — during the team’s...

LeBron James set to ‘hit the switch’ following All-Star break

LeBron James came out like a man on a mission during the Cleveland Cavaliers’ first game following the All-Star break, outscoring the Chicago Bulls 8-2 in the opening minutes and was well on his way to a near-triple-double in Thursday night’s 106-95 victory. It could be reasonably surmised that James’ 25-point, nine-rebound, nine-assist stat line in the win was solely inspired...

Mitch Kupchak on Byron Scott’s shaky job status: ‘I’ll let you know’

Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak quickly grew weary of inquiries about the uncertain hold Byron Scott has on the team’s head coaching position when addressing the media for the first time since the All-Star break. So much so, in fact, that a Lakers PR staffer eventually was forced to run interference. “Byron is under contract, and until that changes, or if that...

Ndamukong Suh: Dolphins ‘destroyed’ Panthers in training camp

Ndamukong Suh apparently had to go pretty far back in time to glean any positives out of the Miami Dolphins’ disappointing 6-10 season, as the defensive lineman reached all the way back to an event during training camp to eke out some semblance of offseason optimism. In one of the more asinine attempts at offering up a brag, Suh chose to point out that the Dolphins far outplayed...
