The biggest news for the NBA this past week was the trade that sent Steve Nash to the Los Angeles Lakers to be their new point guard (have they really even had one?) alongside Kobe Bryant.

The Yankees smell like success

There aren’t many business ventures that the New York Yankees fail in, and at first thought, many felt that a Yankees cologne would never get out of the gate. But, according to recent sales figures, it reeks of awesomeness. The Cloudbreak Group began selling the MLB licensed fragrance back in April, and have reportedly exceeded projected sales by nearly 40%. Macy’s is selling...

Photo: Andris Biedrins had some fun with a solo cup

Something tells me that Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson is shaking his head but wanting to give his center, Andris Biedrins a high five after pictures surfaced online of him having fun with his friends and a female companion. We included one pic that isn’t overly racy, but it appears that he is receiving oral sex in he backseat of a car, while his red solo cup takes...

Miami affiliate reports Ray Allen signing based on fake Twitter account

As sports fans, we are always trying to find out as soon as possible, the moves being made by our teams. The media isn’t much different. This has led to those (myself included) being faked out on Twitter and retweeting a report from a bogus account. How about reporting news from a fake account to your entire viewership? That is exactly what happened with WSVN in Miami, when they...

Video: Mike Miles may be the greatest elementary school basketball player of all-time

It is believed that he is already receiving recruiting letters from several top-flight programs. Just kidding. But it wouldn’t be a complete shock at this point with the way college basketball has been operating, even reaching out to eighth graders. This is Mike Miles, who has unbelievable skill for a kid that is only in the 4th grade. As you can tell from the video, he has...

Happy Hour – Lakers Pick Up Nash, Will It help?

Seems like something big happens in the sports world on July 4th and yesterday was no different. The Los Angeles Lakers have themselves a bona fide PG after completing a sign and trade deal with the Phoenix Suns, for Steve Nash. As many people that saw this as a great move for the Lakers and a significant upgrade over Ramon Sessions, there were others who were quick to decry Nash’s...

Toomer: Romo is better than Eli

Hard to believe that we are only 4 weeks away from the start of training camp, and it was during last years preseason that New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning referred to himself as an elite QB.  Now, former teammate and Giant Amani Toomer is saying that Eli isn’t even the best QB in his division. He says that honor belongs to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. “Tony...

Terror raid near Olympic village leads to six arrests

They haven’t had to use the missiles (and hopefully they don’t) but British police did use smoke grenades and a stun gun in an early morning raid that led to the round up six alleged terrorists. CBS Sports reports that although the five men and one woman were under surveillance near the site for the Summer Games, their alleged plot does not have a direct tie to the event: Intelligence...

Steve Nash parodies 'Dark Knight Rises'

Earlier today, a statement from Steve Nash was released saying that he wanted to be traded closer to home to be near his kids and family. But, if we are to watch this parody of the upcoming Batman flick, I think we can surmise that Nash just wants to be closer to Hollywood. This is hilariously awful. I hope these keep coming, and by Nash’s own admission that he wants to focus...

Justin Upton doesn’t care what the fans think

Just in case he didn’t get booed enough, Justin Upton of the Arizona Diamondbacks has assured that the fans will continue to rain the jeers on him for the time being. Upton has been having a really rough season after playing so well a year ago. He had an 0-5 outing last night, and the fans at Chase Field let him know that they are not really appreciating his struggles with a chorus...

“Bath salts” make their way onto the golf course

It seems that Zombie Apocalypse 2012 has finally made its way to sports, kinda. The most recent incident of an individual that was allegedly high on the synthetic drug, happened at a golf course Lilburn, Ga. Karl Laventure, 21, was the latest flesh-eating maniac, and he attacked police with a golf club at the local course while making “animal sounds” and ranting about Biggie...

Muse releases official Olympic song

Don’t know who Muse is? You probably don’t have a family member or girlfriend that is obsessed with the Twilight books or movies. The author of the books, Stephanie Meyer, informed her fans that she would often listen to Muse for inspiration. That’s ironic. This helped to raise the bands profile exponentially, as well as being a part of the soundtrack for the movie. Their...

Video: Charlotte Bobcats have their 2012-2013 promo trailer ready

I like how the Charlotte Bobcats used a Kanye West song called “Mercy” for the upcoming 2012-2013 season. Ironic. selection after just completing the worst season in NBA history. These promo videos are always hysterical for teams that are struggling, especially when it comes to season ticket sales. I cannot believe that any fan makes the decision to spend money because of...

Steve Nash headed to LA and we all laugh at the New York Knicks

The media wanted to make us all believe that the New York Knicks had the lead to land former MVP point guard Steve Nash. But, the Lakers made the decision to move along some extra cash and draft picks and picked the Canadian, who once was one of the greater foes for Kobe Bryant. Nash and Bryant on the perimeter will be fun to watch, even if it is only for a short period of time...

The Minnesota Wild were hoping they could land just one of the top two free agents on the market this season, with many believing that they had a real solid shot at winger Zach Parise, since he is from Minneapolis.
