Who’s hotter: The Heat or Erik Spoelstra’s girlfriend?

Who’s hotter: The Heat or Erik Spoelstra’s girlfriend?

I have new respect for Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. It has nothing to do with his team’s 18 game winning streak, but rather his smoking hot girlfriend. According to BSO, the 42 year old Spoelstra is dating former Heat dancer Nikki Sapp, 25. You may remember Sapp as the winner of our 2009 Dancer Madness [...]

Video: Steph Curry drops 54 on the Knicks

If you missed Steph Curry last night, you missed one of the NBA’s all-time great shooting exhibitions.  Curry shot 18 of 28 from the field, including in insane 11 of 13 from 3.
