If you’re a professional athlete, specifically in the NBA, it’s one thing to be flamboyantly gawdy, with diamonds or ice dripping all over your body and gators snapping at your feet in every color. But to dress like you skip through meadows instead of smash on rims is a horse of another fashion color.
What exactly is going on with the NBA’s fashion? Are certain members being courted by the fashion world in an attempt akin to the approach designers take to get actors and actresses to wear their couture on the red carpet? Some ballers’ styles are a little more interesting than others. (more…)

The Baltimore Ravens are the reigning NFL champions, but they are at a loss in different positions on the team. Ray Lewis left a gaping hole in the heart of the team when he retired from the inside linebacker position he held and replacing him is not going to be easy.
So far, Rolando McClain has been officially signed to a one-year, $700,000 deal on April 12, as the team’s attempt to fill the position. But, the 23-year-old linebacker has been riddled with problems on and off the field…but mostly off. A week after he signed he was arrested in his hometown of Decatur, Georgia, for some sort of disturbance that included police, according to the Baltimore Sun. (more…)

Have you ever experienced something so ridiculously funny yet no one around you really gets the joke? Well, good, because you might not get this joke, but you’re definitely going to laugh.
Philadelphia Fox 29 hosts of Good Day Philly Mike Jerrick and Sheinelle Jones, broke out in laughter after a recent interview with Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte. They tried to get him to divulge details about himself and his upcoming reality show “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” It didn’t take much to render him speechless and their interview was essentially a non-interview with the difficulty Lochte had answering their questions.

Serena Williams has to be one of the baddest athletes to ever grace a tennis court. Her athleticism shows off in the rock hard frame she sports on the court, but now she’s taken it to the beach in swimwear that’s sure to make some of you salivate incessantly.
She was seen striking several poses during a photo shoot on a beach in Miami, Florida, but some of the photos look like she either wasn’t ready to pose or she was trying to get in place. But whoever was snapping the photos submitted every movement and some of them are more attractive than others. (more…)

On April 4, we reported on the abuse that former Rutgers’ basketball coach Mike Rice, was doling out to the Scarlet Knights basketball team. But when Athletic Director Tim Pernetti, saw Rice hurling anti-gay slurs, kicking, punching, and throwing things at his players, he only slapped him on the wrist with a $50,000 fine and a three-game suspension. Well, once video of Rice in action surfaced on ESPN, we expected that Pernetti was going to get the same pink slip that the university eventually gave to Rice. But, we had NO CLUE both of them would walk away on a RED CARPET!
Retired Los Angeles Clipper, Eric Murdock, who broke the story with video of Rice’s actions, is also under scrutiny, but we’ll get back to that later in the story. First, let us detail the severance packages given to Mike Rice and Tim Pernetti. Both the coach and the athletic director were given over $1 million dollar as Rice was FIRED, and Pernetti decided to RESIGN. (more…)

Finally, the story we’ve been following since May 25, 2012, comes to a triumphant close, yet also a glorious beginning for Brian Banks. He was exonerated after serving five years in prison for being falsely accused of rape at the age of 17. In total, he served 10 years for the crime with five years on probation and lost his promising football career.
Banks lost out on the football scholarships he earned to Michigan State University, University of Southern California, and University of Kansas because of the accusations. But he will get a chance at the life he was meant to have after being drafted by the Atlanta Falcons, Wednesday, according to the NFL.com. (more…)

When your kid takes up sports, you expect for them to be yelled at a bit, receive some crucial criticisms and maybe even physically pushed to get in position. But, when the coach crosses the line of calling names, kicking, snatching, and hitting your kid, all bets are off! You might even say, “Hell! I could’ve done that!”
These are all elements of FORMER Rutgers coach Mike Rice’s program that have now lead him to the unemployment line. Even Governor Chris Christie demanded answers from the university after seeing him bully the basketball team. (more…)

On Sunday, we all watched in complete horror as Louisville’s Kevin Ware went up to block a shot, and came down on his right leg which seemed to shatter upon impact. The bone came through his skin and everyone in the arena was stunned. Some members of the audience as well as his teammates, including Coach Rick Pitino, were seen crying as he writhed in pain. Some of Ware’s teammates became ill and vomited.
But according to the New York Daily News, the seemingly career ending injury that everyone witnessed, including the Louisville team, was just a little “setback” to Ware, who is already up on crutches and ready to play as soon as he can. (more…)
