Michael Jordan’s surprise appearance at Rucker Park

Michael Jordan’s surprise appearance at Rucker Park

So by now you know I'm in New York covering Nike's World Basketball Festival… much of which is happening at Harlem's world famous Rucker Park.   Friday morning… after Dwyane Wade was done brutally rejecting the shots of young children, the crowd was surprise when the MC announce the arrival of his airness himself…. Michael [...]

Kobe Bryant was actually likable today

Kobe Bryant was actually likable today

I was all prepared to hate Kobe Bryant today.  He is fresh off beating the C's for a title (ugh, still hurts) and he made me wake up way too early to cover his event.  So I was looking forward to just flat out hating on him all morning long.  And I couldn't do it.  [...]

Video: Dwyane Wade blocking, taunting children

I was at Rucker Park today for a few different World Basketball Festival events.  Among the festivities was a clinic in the morning that featured Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Michael Jordan.  DWade apparently likes a little negative reinforcement in his basketball instruction… because he had a little fun with these kids by [...]

Both shoes played hard

Both shoes played hard

You might not have noticed… I sure as hell didn't… but Rasheed Wallace did something in game 4 that he hadn't done in 10 years. He wore different shoes. For the first time in over a decade though, during the first half of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals series between the Boston Celtics [...]

LeBron’s “Knicks” shoes are fakes

LeBron’s “Knicks” shoes are fakes

I pretty much eviscerated LeBron James and Nike last week over their supposed Knicks-themed LeBron shoe.  Turns out… they're fakes. [James being a member of the Knicks is] so surreal that a hoax was perpetrated on the Web in the past days — reporting Nike had released pictures of a soon-to-be released new Knicks LeBron shoe [...]

LeBron & Nike are making money by screwing with fans’ heads

LeBron & Nike are making money by screwing with fans’ heads

LeBron James is a free agent this summer… blah blah blah… we know all that.  It's been beaten into our heads that he MIGHT go to New York… which would decimate Cleveland to a point where they're counting ping pong balls for the foreseeable future.  I understand that LeBron is under no obligation to reveal [...]

Ray Allen’s sneaker is actually for basketball

Ray Allen’s sneaker is actually for basketball

Yesterday, we brought you KG's new Chelsea-themed all-blue Addidas (which Chuck later dissed on "The Two Man Game"… more on that in a second). This is the Air Jordan Elements Ray Allen PE.  It's an actual Celtics-themed basketball sneaker. More photos… including the "Sugar Ray" custom stitching on the tongue… after the jump.  But first, [...]

Waiting on Baby details

Waiting on Baby details

Last night was a pretty typical summer night for me:  Red Sox on the TV, TweetDeck and my Google reader open on the laptop, and a beer on the table.  Don't tell me I don't live it up. And it's a good thing the Red Sox and Yankees spent forever trying to score runs.  If [...]

The LeBitch Dunk Video (Better Version)

The LeBitch Dunk Video (Better Version)

2nd UPDATE: I replace the original EbaumNation clip with this one. It's shorter and won't play everytime the page loads. UPDATE: This video shows Jordan Crawford dunking on LeBron James. It's from Ebaum Nation and much better quality that the TMZ video (below). [...]

LeBron video hitting the web tonight!

LeBron video hitting the web tonight!

Here's more proof that LeBron and Nike are idiots for confiscating that tape of him getting dunked on. There's one video of the dunk… and it's going to go up on TMZ.com just before 7pm.  That's right… TMZ.  So instead of it living on somewhere as a funny little YouTube moment… TMZ is now involved.  [...]
