The Machine Getting Into Tall Fashion

"It's hard to find clothes for tall people", you've more than likely heard that for years, especially if your the "average size" person with tall friends i.e a point guard. Well were glad to see that Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic is dipping in to the fashion business to help remedy this issue for the tall folks. Sasha told the Orange County Register...

“I couldn’t find long jeans or pants, so when I had the opportunity to work with Rock & Republic, I took it,” Vujacic said. “They wanted to do something really unique for tall guys who didn’t want to walk around like Steve Urkel of Family Matters".

Hey Urkel had a little game also didn't he? So I guess it's fitting. Well see if Vujacic fashion endeavors have as much success as his self-given nickname.

Nate Rob Already Thinking About Trying Shaq?

I couldn't help but replay Nate Rob jumping on Big Baby Davis during the playoffs. So after seeing this shot I'll set the over under at 10 that Nate Rob climbs up on Shaq by season end.

Nate Rob already looks like he wants to try Shaq....foreshadowing of a dunk contest prop maybe... nah! Superman can't take too much more kryptonite!

Let's just hope Shaq doesn't drool all over the place when it happens!

Paul George And The Kids

We know the NBA Cares so we couldn't help but give Pacers rook Paul George some love for starting out on the right foot with the kids!

The hat is what makes the pic though!!

Durant Hooping At NBA Store Via Elite '11

Catch a flight do whatever you gotta do but get to the NBA Store this weekend for the EA Sports NBA Triple Double.

Durant goes from winning a FIBA World Title to hooping on EA's Elite 11 .

I can't lie, I've got to dust off the sticks. Training Camp starts for me also...Shame I had to admit that!

Hollywood: Steve Nash Debuts as Director

Steve Nash added documentary director to his resume. Like he needed more credentials. Geesh. We would've hired him.

Tweet: Chirs Douglas-Roberts Laughs at You Mo Williams

Remember Mo Williams talking about how he considered quiting basketball, leaving $26 million dollars on the table all for the loss of LeBron James from his team?


sad Mo
Well catch up here>

For the rest of you, new Bucks' player Christ Douglas-Roberts has no sympathy and cracks up really loud via twitter.


We do find Mo's statement funny. And CDR's finger pointing laughter at him even funnier.

Love: UPDATE LeBron Engaged...NOT

We've just confirmed...it was a weird rumor spreading accross the internet. Damn internet!
old post
...well that's according to Black Media Scoop, LeBron's girlfriend is now a fiance'.

Reality TV: Melo and Wife Celebrate New Show

Well aren't they laid back and chillin'. The newly weds threw a party a few days ago to celebrate the premiere of "Lala's Full Court Wedding" on VH1.

Here's some pic's from inside the private party.

Off Season: Derek Rose and Rajon Rondo ESPN Commercial Shoot

These guys: Rajon Rondo and Derek Rose, are probably BFF's by now. With the NBA 2K11 commerical and now the NBA on ESPN commerical.
Rondo is on the bus looking amused.

Rondo and J. Rose
That's Jalen Rose apparently beating Rondo in Connect Four. (Rondo, that guy doesn't like losing.)

D. Rose
And there's Derek Rose.

This commercial should be full of smiles. These are the two guys of any in the league that smile the least!


Off Season: Chris Bosh is Funny or Die

It's not time to go to work yet. Check out a behind the scenes photo of Chris Bosh on the set of a "Funny or Die" shoot.

Here's the caption from the site:

FOD Behind the Scenes
We shot a video yesterday with Chris Bosh and Hal Rudnick. If you look closely, you can probably guess which one them plays in the NBA.


Video: Brook Lopez and Ryan Anderson Scare the Neighborhood

Look what we've found! Nets young guns Brook Lopez and Ryan Anderson terrorizing the neighborhood.
Anderson and Lopez
Check it out...so funny!

Science and Technology Back At Work With NBA Uniforms

Dwight Howard Tweeted about it yesterday and today we have a few more facts. Adidas will be supplying the NBA with new uniforms that are reported to be lighter and dry faster.

The All-Star jerseys from 2010, which Dwight is wearing here...

were the final versions. Here's what Travis Blasingame of Adidas told USA TODAY about the new uniforms

"When you talk to trainers and equipment managers, the majority of (players) are changing uniforms at halftime because things get so wet. ... We believe they are going to make guys more comfortable, make guys faster". "Our philosophy is you can't grab what you can't hold," says Blasingame. "Right now, with the baggier jerseys, especially come playoff time, people are grabbing and holding and everything else."

I guess with the reduction in weight of the uniforms it's somewhat possible to increase a players speed, jumping ability and fatigue factor but please don't go back to the tight shorts of the 80's just don't do it!


Scalabrine Pointing The Way To Illtown

We just don't know why we love Scals so much but we do. And how can we forget the radio contest last year to get him voted to the All-Star game!

Well it seems that Scals is headed to Chicago and will join former Celtics assistant coach and now Bulls' head coach Tom Thibodeau.

No word on if a contest was held in Illtown to get Scals brought in or if he was highly offended by being left hanging by Celtics players during the playoffs but nonetheless he's taking his championship experience and bench warming abilities to Chicago. Hey don't you laugh, Scals has been on four NBA Finals teams, so it's apparent he breeds success wherever he goes! Go Scals!!!

Wifey: Melo's Wife says "We Ain't Going No Place"

In fact you can expect to see Carmelo Anthony at camp shortly.
According to a radio interview she did yesterday, all of this tugging and rumored speculation all summer long has been "hilarious" to them.
Huh? Why do you play with our hearts guys? *sad face*

Here's what she said:

"In the beginning it was stressful because you would hear so many things," she said. "I used to take it seriously, but now we’ve turned it more into a joke because literally every day, more than four times a day, we have moved or are moving to a different place. So, at that point it’s just funny that how one minute we’re here, five minutes later we’re there ... and none of it is true."

Vasquez said that Denver is where the couple continues to make its home, though her choice of words did not necessarily indicate that Anthony is committed to the team long term.

While Carmelo added, "I'm a Nugget. I'm not even a free agent yet."


Off Season: Dwyane Wade like the Bears

Chicago native Dwyane Wade gave some dap to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler before yesterday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Wade and Cutler
 Is this after the game...I hope. Focus! Focus!

Emmy Bound: Baron Davis' Movie get the Hollywood Nod

Congrats to Baron Davis. NBA.com reports that his gang documentary "Crips and Bloods: Made in America"is up for the Best Documentary Emmy Award.
Our own NBA FrontPage creator Dayvee interviewed last year regarding it. *plug*
Baron Davis
So again we say congratulations to Baron Davis.

Video: Rose, Lee, Rondo - NBA 2K11 (Minus the Cover Boy...again)

These videos are so cute. Oh, am I allowed to say that?
Well our young studs of the NBA are at it again.

NBA 2K11
Still no sight of Brandon Jennings in the house though. But Derek Rose and David Lee are battling, exchanging t-shirts...then surprise Rondo. He's looking for others with rings.
Just watch:

Tweet: LeBron..."3 Kings" + "U are what u wear"

"It's the Roc!" Triangles up?  Oh, there's a Bad Boy in the mix. *Sigh* I'm so confused.
Anyway, LeBron James twitpic'd this and wrote " 3 Kings!!"

Diddy, Jay, Bron
He also twitpic'd this "U are what u wear!"
The tee reads: "Me? I'm just confident. It's my skills that are arrogant."
And...he got Nike to swoosh it. Nike's still his bitch.
Bron is deep man.

Note for Groupies: Yi Jianlian is Off Limits

Thanks to our buddy at BlackSportsOnline.com for bringing this to our attention. It's quite a funny story.

Yi Jianlian

Jianlian is from China. He's been compared to a Yao MIng mini me. He's also been in the NBA for three years but still believes Chinese women are the best.
THREE YEARS into the NBA as well as the American life, Chinese basketball star Yi Jianlian doesn’t seem to have changed who he was in terms of his views on love and marriage, as he gives a point-blank “No” when asked about whether he would consider a mixed marriage.
“I’ll definitely marry a Chinese girl,” the low-profile star blushes at the question. “And it is not about aesthetic stuff, I am just not that open to a mixed marriage.”
He also reveals that he has not been chased by any women during his long stay in America.
“Foreign girls are usually more passionate. And I will not push myself on it (marriage),” he says with a smile. “It is not like making a dress, which can be done overnight.”

Off Season: Jason Kidd is a Kidd

We love seeing this picture. Mavericks Jason Kidd poses for a picture after painting around for a Jason Kidd Foundation event.

Video: Boozer on Beards

Combing the Internet, we found this amusing video of new Bull Carlos Boozer giving his take on beards...yes you read that right...facial hair around the league.

So of course! That's right up our alley!
Here it is...thanks to DimeMag.com

Barkley: Agent Money Isn't College Money

Plenty of NBA players have landed their former colleges in trouble with the NCAA for their dealings with agents. Ole Chuck just told the truth...

"I got money from agents when I was in college. "Most of the players I know borrow money from agents."

"Let me tell you something, these agents are well known, and they've been giving kids money for 30 years, and I have no problem with it. Borrowing money from an agent ain't the same as a college paying you."

Well until the NCAA finds a way to pay the student-athlete with more than the paperwork, it's still going to happen. Hence the "One and Done" players in college. I guess that's why I like the D-League and overseas ball. Gives you the choice to skip the NCAA altogether if you want.

UPDATE: Shaq Fights Lawsuit on Hacking

CNN.com reports that Shaquille O'Neal filed a motion to dismiss the claim in which a former worker accuses the NBA star of hacking into his personal accounts and attempting to frame him for using child porn.

 Basically the claim is the Shaq was being blackmailed because his "personal computer consultant" had proof of his cheating on his wife with several women.
 And Shaq says, no...that guy illegally accessed his personal information. Thus making him the "hacker."

Read the full details of the complaint here.

I'm sure they appreciated the gorgeous picture. They were posing right?

Love: Dwight Howard Sues Royce Reed

...not $5k, or even $5 millon dollars. No Dwight Howard is suing the mother of his child $500 million dollars!
dwight vs royce

The reason...he claims she is continuly bashing him in the media and secretly leaking information about him.
TMZ reports: 

TMZ has obtained legal docs filed by the Orlando Magic star in Orange County, Florida, in which he claims his baby mama Royce Reed — who stars on VH1′s “Basketball Wives” — leaked dirt about him to the media at least 11 times … thus violating a 2009 gag order.
In the docs, Howard explains that if the leaked stories reached 1,000,000 people — a safe estimate given that the stories were posted all over the Internet — the damages should add up to $500,500,000 based on the terms of their previous agreement.
A rep for Reed denies any wrongdoing — telling TMZ the leaked info originated from legal documents … which is “immune to any agreement made by the parties.”
These two stay in the press, and their dirty laundry keeps popping out the washing machine.
Why he would want to cripple the mother of his child financially (after all she does raise his own child), no matter how much he may hate her, is a point we just don't get.

We told you this was getting ugly.

Ahhhh yes GSW is taking submissions in the 140-character limit form, savvy!

Good to know they are all for Twitter cause Stephen Curry cracks us up sometimes!

Mark Cuban: LeBron Humiliated Cleveland

Finally! We love when Mark Cuban opens his mouth and gives his opinion. Damn the fines!
Mark Cuban

The Mavericks team owner commented LeBron James' moves this off season for the first time on Wednesday in an appearance on The Dunham and Miller Show on SportsRadio 1310 in Dallas.
"LeBron has every right to go wherever and do whatever, whatever team he wants to," Cuban said. "Going to the Heat was his choice, those guys working together. I don't even have a problem with the three of them working together, as long as they follow all of the NBA rules, which I think they did.
Where I think LeBron made a mistake, was in how he did it. I don’t even have a problem that he had the tv show. But it turned out to be the largest public humiliation in the history of sports. He humiliated the organization, he humiliated the state of Ohio , the city of Cleveland. All of a sudden he became a bad guy, he lost a billion dollars in brand equity, give or take a couple bucks here or there.
"I told his folks that I think he got bad advice. It’s not about 'Can he move?' He can move, he can play for any team. I think he picked the wrong team (chuckles). There’s a team in Dallas that could have used him and that would have been better served but it’s his choice. But the way he did it I thought was just a huge mistake."


Tweet: Starbury Wants Everyone to Play in China

...he got that hookup.

With the news that Allen Iverson may be considering going abroad to play, Stephon Marbury hit the twitter campagin.
S M tweet
I've heard from other players that play overseas that it does get lonely. So I understand. But, he doesn't have to and predict a definite lockout. Geesh Steph! That's pessimistic.

Uh Oh: Shaq Sued for Hacking

Shaquille O'Neal

New Celtics star Shaquille O’Neal is at the center of an explosive new lawsuit accusing him of computer hacking, destroying evidence, and indicating that he attempted to frame an employee by planting child pornography on his computer, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively. Ugh.
Here are some of the explosive allegations:
  • Shaq hacked into the voicemails and phone systems of Darling and Vanessa Lopez, a mistress who is currently suing O’Neal. He deleted Lopez’s messages and changed her password.
  • O’Neal used his law enforcement contacts, both active and retired, to obtain restricted information about one of his mistresses, Alexis Miller, while he was involved in a legal battle with her.
  • Shaq threw a personal computer holding much of this evidence in the lake behind his home.
  • Shaq conspired with active law enforcement as well as ex-members of law enforcement to frame Darling for a criminal offense and destroy any evidence that Darling might have against O’Neal.

Is this why he really wanted to become a police officer? To get on the inside of things?

Check out the promo video for NBA 2K11.

It features Derek Rose (cooking in the kitchen), Rajon Rondo (on the phone with his mama), Andre Iguodala, Russell Westbrook and Josh Smith playing the game. They're dishing about Michael Jordan's greatest moments.

I don't know whose house this is...but it's fly.

Also missing...the cover boy. Where is Brandon Jennings? Hmmm...
I can't lie...we love seeing these young stars hanging together.

Ben Gordon Clean at Perry Ellis Show

Pistons guard Ben Gordon took in the Perry Ellis show with his stunning girlfriend.

I think his outfit still fell within the league dress code!

As you can see fashion is very important throughout the Association.

Was It the Shoes...

Brandon Jennings thinks his shoes are the reason he didn't get selected to the USA team. Hmm let's see, his finished 3rd to Tyreke Evans and Stephen Curry for the Rookie of the Year award-one I thought he should have won, played overseas straight out of high school prior to the NBA and sprained an ankle at the tryouts.

Under Amour isn't exactly a household name in the hoops shoe market but that doesn't mean Jennings should have been dumped because of his kicks. 9 of the 12 players on Team USA rep Nike, with D Rose, Chauncey and Eric Gordon reppin' elsewhere. So I asked myself, who would I take, Jennings or Eric Gordon and it'd be BJ3. He has international experience, led a team to the playoffs and dimes it off like nobody's business. How many would Durant have gotten with Jennings feeding him the rock?

1st Year Heat Dancer Killed

Nancy G. Lopez-Ruiz had recently been named to the Miami Heat dance team for the 2010-'11 season.

She was killed while riding her Suzuki GSX R motorcycle this past Friday.

We just hate to hear this type of thing especially with so much excitement in Miami for this upcoming season. While she wasn't a player, how many of us love the dance team moves during timeouts, which means she was still a part of the NBA family.

We send our deepest sympathy her family.

Carmelo Enjoying His Offseason, No Hoops Talk

Ok, so Carmelo and his wife La La Vasquez were out in NY checking out the tennis action at the US Open and get hit with basketball talk questions, specifically those about trade discussions where his name seems to be involved.

I mean Melo says he was there to enjoy tennis, fashion week, why not ask him about what he enjoyed about those events. I bet they thought of that after he reiterated he "wasn't thinking about basketball". Fashion Week, tennis stars and New York, nope I'm not thinking about hoops either...during the off season.
