While one gets engaged...

...the other gets ready for divorce. First off, congratulations on Michael Jordan's engagement to Yvette Prieto. It is always nice to see former NBA greats, especially Air Jordan, display positive headlines.
Not so much Kobe Bryant though.
Yes it is old news that Kobe and Vanessa Bryant are planning to cut ties rather soon. For our Friday funnies, FunnyorDie.com makes light of the situation while Kobe Bryant held a press conference this week talking about the divorce and how much this is affecting him. One person though, might have a say on trying to stop this fiasco. Enjoy!

Miami Heat Intro Video

Chris Bosh

There are no words for this.  I just...I can't...oh dear God.

Dwayne Wade looks like the captain on a Carnival Cruise. Lebron James is trying to be tough in a mint green sweater.  No one has or ever will look tough in mint green.  And then there's Chris Bosh who looks like that uncle everyone has that doesn't know how to buy clothes that fit.

Oh and then there's a bunch of other random guys in flashy clothes starring intensely at the camera.

End scene.

King James Celebrates 27 Years

2012 is almost here but not before LeBron James turns 27. The young NBA star has to go big for his birthday celebration. I'm sure another win tonight would be icing on the cake.

Ladies of the Heat Prepare for the Game

Gabrielle, Adrienne and Savannah...Need we say more?

While the men of the Miami Heat were warming up for their game against the Boston Celtics last night, the ladies of a few players were looking fabulous and posting pictures for the world to see.

Showing off their expensive name brand gear, but would you expect anything less from the ladies claiming Dwayne Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh?

Lebron and Wade mock Cam Newton with his signature Superman celebration

Wade and James do the Superman for Cam Newton.

Dwayne Wade may have been mocking Cam Newton by doing his signature Superman move after his game-winning basket against the Bobcats, but Newton should be flattered.  Having an NBA superstar acknowledge you and mimic your touchdown pose, is pretty fantastic., especially as a rookie.

Not sure why Lebron felt the need to jump on the bandwagon and play along in the background though.  Get your own shtick, Lebron.  

Hawks President Chats at the GA Aquarium

Atlanta Hawks President, Bob Williams was recently at the Georgia Aquarium doing an interview with Emmy Award winning television journalists, Shaunya Chavis-Rucker and Kimberley Kennedy for their television show, The Chat Room.
Bob Williams makes the guest list for The Chat Room

During his interview, Williams discussed his thoughts on the new NBA season and how the lockout impacted his players. He also mentioned several of the players and how they have improved and will play a crucial part on the team this season.

Of course Williams couldn't come to the interview alone. Williams brought two surprise guests with him, Atlanta Cheerleaders Crystal and Juliana.

To see the full interview you'll have to wait until this particular show airs in January.

Heat: All Of The Lights...For 2011-2012.

With all the attention elsewhere during the frantic post lockout off-season, the Miami Heat have not received as much talk as they did say 12 months ago. That may do them some favors but they still want us to know they are around. So to ensure that they released this video. Enjoy!

Well we love the song but now we really like it because the Heat did it right!

Shaq vs. Big Show @ Wrestlemania 28

It looks like recently retired Shaquille O'Neal is beginning to pick up new talents in his post-playing career. Shaq is in talks to wrestle the Big Show at Wrestlemania 28.

Who ya got - Shaq or the Big Show?

LeBron Stops Dunking on Minors

James dunks during 1st game of the season against Boston Celtics
In light of the NBA lockout ending, LeBron James can now take his dunking skills to people his own size, or at least his own age.

James spent time during his offseason dunking on and knocking over little kids. Knocking them over wasn't intentional, but it sure was funny to watch.

James and the Miami Heat hit the court again for the first time last night. James was back in full swing as the Heat defeated the Boston Celtics, 115-107.


Humphries Can't Catch a Break

Most people would think scoring 21 points and grabbing 16 rebounds in a season opener would be a pretty awesome game, right? Well, not if you're Kris Humphries. In the Nets 2011-2012 season opener against the Washington Wizards, a 90-84 victory, Humphries was booed the entire time. During introductions, every time he touched the ball, when he scored, you name it, he was booed.

Humphries has obviously been in the public eye over the past several months for his marriage to reality superstar Kim Kardashian. The marriage, which included the wedding be shown on television, lasted an entire 72 days before the two divorced. Clearly, Kris has rubbed the public the wrong way regardless of his play.

Tell me what you would do if you go to a Net game this year - boo or cheer for Kris Humphries?


Pound The Rock

As a coach, you always try to find that specific motto or quote that tries to get your team going. This is especially true when you have had a few years as the bottom cellar team. The Toronto Raptors haven't had very successful seasons, and with the loss of Chris Bosh last year, finishing 22-60. Dwayne Casey is now at the helm, and with a shortened season, he feels that this would be a great time to take over with such a young roster. So, to start, he has a 1300 pound boulder sitting right in front of the Raptors' locker room explaining that they need to “pound the rock”. A quote from the Associated Press:

A 1,300-pound boulder sits just inside the front door to the Toronto Raptors’ dressing room, a reminder of the mentality Dwane Casey is trying to instill in his new team.

Heading into what the Raptors coach is calling a “building” season, Casey has introduced a new motto: Pound the Rock.

“I knew we were going to be a work in progress, every time we walked on the floor we were going to have to have something to get us to think about … how we have to get better, we’ve got to work to get better,” Casey said this week. “It’s from a story about a stonecutter. Every time a stonecutter hits a rock it may not break. You may have to hit it 100 times but on that 101st time you hit it, now you crack the rock.”

It may seem crazy, but the Spurs and Greg Popovich have the exact same motto and type of rock sitting in their locker room. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers also had the same approach when Jon Gruden was head coach in 2002, and ironically enough, it landed them a Super Bowl trophy. If this $500 piece of stone is the tool that sends the Raptors to bigger and better things, this could be a fad that could possibly sweep the entire nation.

Life is Good for MVP D. Rose

One week after signing a $94 Million contract extension with the Chicago Bulls, Derrick Rose is on the verge of signing the highest paid sneaker contract in the NBA with Adidas.

Can't we all agree that Rose is on quite a run since winning the MVP back in May?


Jordan... Engaged...?

So Mike couldn't contain himself. He once vowed to never marry again after his marriage with Juanita dissolved a few years ago. The nature of wanting that close mate has gotten to MJ again as he landed on one knee and asked his longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto. She has been a fixture at MJ's side for quite a while now and knows what comes with that territory so obviously MJ feels she is his off-the-court Pippen to us a hoops analogy.

If at first you do not succeed, try again. We know Mike doesn't like losing and that can sometimes carry into the personal life. We wish them the best.

NBA on TNT's new video of past and present players playing together on the same team. D Rose bumping fists with MJ, Amar'e and Patrick bumping chests, this video celebrates athletes of all generations.

One of the best NBA videos in recent years? Tell me what you think!

Over the weekend, Lou Williams got out of an attempted robbery because the robber noticed Williams for the charity work that he had done in the mans neighborhood.

Everybody thinking that Lou Williams will continue his charity work after this event like I do?

Classic Jordans Released...Folks Go Wild

Well just in time for the NBA season opener the classic Air Jordan 11's-aka "Concords" were released. Now ANY shoe Jordan has released is always filled with hype, long lines and usually sellout within minutes. Yet when it comes to this pair, people seem to go all out. These were the pair that Stern fined Jordan for in his comeback season as they "were not in the color scheme of the team" (Jordan was also fined for switching to No. 23 during the playoffs during the '95 season.

The following season he rocked them enroute to leading the Bulls to an NBA-record 72 wins. So put all of that with the sleek design of the shoe and release it oh what 14 years later and your going to have mayhem across the country, that released date was today and well...folks lost their mind..

Via the AJC... "DeKalb police arrested a woman who left two children, ages 2 and 5, in a car while she went inside to buy a pair of the $180 Nike Air Jordan “Concords.”

Now leaving your kids in the car for J's isn't maybe the smartest thing but we ask how long were you there, maybe those kids were sleep by the time you could get in the line.

We love the kicks and would love to have them but at the rate that some are going to obtain a pair is just insane to say the least.

As Dad told me in 1996.... "Son you don't have to have them today, trust me they will come out again". Oh he was right but they are even more insane measures that you have to go through to get them and they are going for $200 (were rounding up) which is more than what they went for in 1996.

How do you think Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, and Al-Farouq Aminu feel about getting traded?

I came across this picture the other day while reading the All Ball Blog from NBA.com. It was a blog by Zettler Clay titled "Pictures don't lie...right?" In the blog he had the picture to the left of Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, and Al-Farouq Aminu - the three main pieces the New Orleans Hornets got in return from the Los Angeles Clippers for Chris Paul. Now, if the whole "Pictures speak 1,000 words" thing is true, then Gordon, Kaman, and Aminu are definitely not to happy that they got traded. Although I have never personally been to New Orleans, I hear it is an awesome town, but I kind of have to side with the three on this one. I don't think that too many people would want to leave the spotlight that is Los Angeles, playing with one of, if not the best, young talents in the game in Blake Griffin. Who knows, maybe New Orleans will surprise some people this year, but having to leave L.A., Gordon, Kaman, and Aminu definitely got the short end of the stick on this trade. If you don't believe me, just take another look at that picture.
