Looks like Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving has a new boo. Kyrie is dating Clippers’ head coach Doc Rivers’ daughter Callie. If you recall, Callie dated Pacers Paul George, and her ex was a college basketball player at UNC.

So, you know there’s more to it than that, right? Here’s where things get a bit tricky. You ready?? :: takes a deep breath::

So Kyrie went to college at Duke with Callie’s brother Austin. Down the road at UNC was Callie’s then boyfriend Dexter Strickland. Dex allegedly wasn’t the greatest boyfriend, and Kyrie – who was a friend of Dexter’s – was a supportive shoulder. Sometimes those bonds lead to hook ups later. Maybe that explains these tweets from Callie in early December.



Kyrie hit for 37 on the Knicks in the Garden on that date by the way…


OK, let’s add another layer to the story. Kyrie used to date Chantel Jeffries -you know Chantel as the former boo of Redskins WR DeSean Jackson, and Justin Bieber. Callie and Chantel were friends too at one point.

Like I always say, they love a referral.

OJ Mayo accused of not paying $19K Private Jet bill Sat, 20 Dec 2014 17:41:50 +0000 When you’re a professional athlete, flying is probably stressful. Many are too big for the seats – even in first class sometimes – who wants to be bothered with lines, baggage check in fees, etc. I guess it’s much more practical for some to fly private. That had to be the thought process of Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo.


Mayo apparently used private as his preferred method of travel. Maybe he didn’t realize just how expensive the “PJ” life actually is. Per TMZ Sports, Mayo is being sued for $19k because a charter airline company claims he didn’t pay for their services, and was using “illegal narcotics” during the flight.

According to a lawsuit filed today by Quantum Jets … Mayo booked a flight from Houston to L.A. on July 16th, but couldn’t pay for the entire flight. The airline agreed he could give them a down payment, and pay the rest the next day.

But Quantum claims he never coughed up the dough. Further, they say he used illegal narcotics during the flight. The suit doesn’t specify what kind of drugs.

I’m going to assume the “illegal narcotic” was weed.

Damian Lillard scores 43 in Blazers triple-overtime win over Spurs [Video] Sat, 20 Dec 2014 16:32:45 +0000  


During last season’s NBA playoffs, the Portland Trailblazers shocked many by knocking out the Houston Rockets in the first round. Point guard Damian Lillard was huge in that series hitting a buzzer beating long three to send Dwight Howard and teammates fishing.

Cut to the second round, the Blazers were up against the seasoned San Antonio Spurs who made light work of the team. We know what the Spurs went on to do in the playoffs.

Last night Damian and the Blazers got a bit of revenge, beating the Spurs in triple-overtime, 129-119. After a 10-point fourth quarter, Damian Lillard scored 16 in overtime for a career-high 43 points.




This was the Spurs second triple-overtime defeat in three days.

New video shows Ray & Janay Rice kissing in cuffs after elevator incident [Video] Sat, 20 Dec 2014 15:56:55 +0000 ray-rice-janay-palmer-married

I know you thought there wasn’t anything else to see from that infamous February night in Atlantic City, where former Ravens RB Ray Rice knocked out his then-fiance, Janay. You’d be wrong, more footage has been released of the aftermath.

In the video via ABC News, you can see Ray and Janay hug and kiss while in handcuffs as police escort them away from the casino.

In a recent interview with the “Today Show,” Janay stated that she and Ray didn’t speak the entire ride home because she was angry about what took place. I guess that part started after Ray was released from custody. In this video at least, Janay is the one who looks to be apologizing.

Nick Young ejected from Lakers vs. Thunder for flagrant 2 on Steven Adams [Video] Sat, 20 Dec 2014 15:32:04 +0000 Nick-Young-Steven-Aams

Lakers star Nick Young isn’t the type of guy that gets up in your face. That changed on Friday night during a home match up against the  Oklahoma City Thunder. Young was ejected after being given a flagrant 2 foul in the fourth quarter when he got tangled up with Steven Adams.

“I lost my mind a little bit, checked into the crazy house, got back out,”

“It’s not my first rodeo with him,” said Young. “Just little hits here and there, when they’re coming off screens, he’ll stick his knee out and stuff like that. I’m not here to tell on him or anything like that. He’s doing his job. He did his job today to get me out of the game. That’s what they put him in the game to do.”

Adams seems to evoke this sort of response from a lot of players. Last season, 5 different players (Nate Robinson, Vince Carter, Jordan Hamilton, Larry Sanders and Zach Randolph) were ejected or suspended after altercations with Adams.

Byron Scott had this to say about Adams:

“He’s going to grab and hold and do things to irritate you, and Nick definitely overreacted. He’s too valuable for us to overreact and get kicked out of the game like that.”

Lakers loss by one.

Darren Sharper case: Testimony reveals text messages: “She’s on the potion. She’s ready” Sat, 20 Dec 2014 15:12:26 +0000 Darren-sharper-rape

Former NFL star Darren Sharper is facing state and federal charges in Louisiana. On Thursday, an FBI agent testified yesterday about questioning former sheriff’s deputy Brandon Licciardi, who is charged with distributing drugs and witness tampering.

Licciardi told investigators he went to a convention in Las Vegas attended by NFL players, and a player warned Licciardi that drinks had been spiked with drugs, FBI Special Agent Robert Blythe testified. Questioned by Licciardi’s lawyer, Ralph Capitelli, Blythe declined to name the player Licciardi mentioned, or other NFL players at the convention.

Blythe said he might not recall the name correctly. “It’s possible I could mess it up. There are a couple (names),” Blythe said.


And what did those other NFL players call the drinks mixed with a “substance,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Miller asked Blythe.

“I believe Mr. Licciardi called it ‘horny juice,'” Blythe replied.

Licciardi was concerned that investigators might find incriminating text messages on his phone, Blythe testified, including a message in which Sharper allegedly referred to drugging a victim.

“She’s on the potion. She’s ready,” Sharper wrote in a text, Blythe said.

A different FBI agent testified that Licciardi worked for a bookie and recruited Sharper, who bet large sums on sports, including NFL games.

Sharper currently faces charges in Louisiana, California, and Arizona, and an investigation into similar claims in Nevada is ongoing.

50 Cent inks $78 million deal with underwear brand Fri, 19 Dec 2014 18:45:55 +0000 50 cent

50 Cent has inked a $78 million deal with FRIGO Revolution Wear to promote men’s underwear. The brand previously worked with former Yankees short-stop Derek Jeter and current New York Knicks player Carmelo Anthony.

“Fiddy” announced the deal on Instagram Monday, before appearing on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” to endorse the $100 briefs.

50 Cent admits that the product was designed prior to his involvement, but he is quick to defend the hefty price tag. He told Meyers, “Women spend so much money on lingerie; it’s the right project for men.”

FRIGO Revolution Wear boasts that their products “were created to revolutionize the underwear industry by offering men optimal comfort, moisture-control and support, with style and practicality in mind.”

Now if he can only make his boxing promotions biz and SMS Audio pop… No shade, I think 50 is a great business man. I just don’t know whose in the market for his latest products.

Matt Kemp to Padres official after concerns over arthritic hip Fri, 19 Dec 2014 17:03:17 +0000 Matt-Kemp

A week after it was announced, the trade between the LA Dodgers and San Diego Padres is official. The hang up to the deal being formally announced was reportedly over the health of outfielder Matt Kemp.

Kemp reportedly has arthritis in both hips. Some how that news was leaked and a new beef has formed between the two franchises front offices.

There could be some lingering ill will between the Dodgers’ front office and first-year Padres general manager A.J. Preller because of the belief that Kemp’s physical results were leaked to help San Diego pry further concessions out of its NL West foes, sources said. The Padres did ask for additional compensation from the Dodgers after Kemp’s physical, but Los Angeles refused.

I wonder how Matt and Padres’ Carlos Quentin will get along. The two had a scuffle back in 2013.

I’m sure Matt wants to get back to his 2011 form. I predict he’ll get a steady girlfriend, settle in, and then bounce to the Diamondbacks within the next two years.




It is with a lot of emotion that I say goodbye to the city and the fans who have been there since the beginning of my career. You have given me so much. Your faith and support for the last 9 years through good times and bad, homestands and home runs was showcased through the volume of your cheers and the love for your team. I’m thankful to the Dodgers organization for taking a chance on an Oklahoma kid. I believe we control our paths. The paths we take, control our destiny. I’m excited for the future. God Bless

Shaq, Kenny Smith & Grant Hill freestyle with Nicki Minaj on “Inside the NBA” [Video] Fri, 19 Dec 2014 16:29:48 +0000 We know, most rappers wanted to be athletes, and most athlete’s wanted to be rappers. When the two link up, some sort of hijinks usually ensues. Thursday night Nicki Minaj dropped by the “Inside the NBA” set to promote her new album, “The Pink Print.”

Back in the day, Shaq changed the sports game by becoming the first NBA player to go platinum, Grant Hill is married to a platinum selling artist – Tamia- and Kenny Smith’s daughter is a singer. Makes sense for the four of them to break out into a cypher, right?

Hilarity! Shaq was in his element, we know his freestyles always lead to some comedy. Never forget, “Yo Kobe, tell me how my a$$ taste”

And in case you missed Nicki grinding it out to her new song with Beyonce, “Feeling myself,” I got you.

It was Twerks for the kids Wednesday, that was the same night that Amber Rose and Blac Chyna did it for the gram also.

Rajon Rondo traded to Dallas Mavericks Thu, 18 Dec 2014 23:55:01 +0000 rajon_rondo

The competition in the Western Conference just went up a notch. The Boston Celtics and the Dallas Mavericks have reportedly agreed to a trade that will send all-star point guard Rajon Rondo to Dallas for Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder, Jameer Nelson and a future first- and second-round draft pick.

Rondo will be a free agent at the end of the season. The Lakers were interested in Rondo’s services as well- he and Kobe just recently went to breakfast- but reportedly thought it was more important to hold on to the draft pick and potentially make a run at Rondo during 2015 free agency.

This move definitely sets the Mavs up to make a run for the finals. The biggest question is chemistry. Rondo is known to be an “a$$ hole” in his own words.

The Cleveland Cavaliers had their worst lost of the season Wednesday night. The Cavs loss 127-98 at home to the Atlanta Hawks. In his post game, head coach David Blatt said he was embarrassed and wanted to apologize to their fans.

A reporter asked LeBron if he was embarrassed about the loss. Let’s just say that King James wasn’t here for the “negativity.”

“Do you always ask negative questions?” The reporter responded and told LeBron what Dave Blatt said, but by then, it was too late.

Brandon Jennings explains why he passed up an open lay up for a jump shot Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:34:31 +0000 Brandon-jennings

During Pistons vs. Mavericks, point guard Brandon Jennings passes up a lay-up to dribble back out and shoot a jumper… Jennings is shooting 36% from the field this season mind you.

After the game, BJ took to Twitter to explain what happened:
