Interesting. I agree with Charles Barkley (above) & I agree with Michael Wilbon (after the jump). What came up around recent discussion/debate regarding the NFL’s Richie Incognito’s alleged bullying of Miami Dolphin Jonathan Martin has jumped the fence… from the National Football League to commentary from one of the greats of the National Basketball Association… to [once again] a national conversation. Ernie had Shaq chiming in near the end of the clip, too. Watch.
10,000 rushing yards by age 30, Steven Jackson is among the NFL’s (and history’s) elite running backs. However, now Jackson finds himself at a crossroads: joining the Atlanta Falcons after nine years with the St. Louis Rams… hopefully bringing enough steam with him to push the train down the tracks (e.g. deep into the playoffs some day soon). Jay Z’s Life + Times gives the mic and face time to Jackson this episode; so he can tell us where his mind, body, and soul are at this point in the game.
I was watching an interview with Kyrie Irving on ESPN’s SportsNation when they debuted his latest ‘Uncle Drew’ ad. This time he brings along
Chicago Bulls Denver Nuggets point guard Nate Robinson & WNBA star & Atlanta resident Maya Moore in for the fun. I gets buckets! Haha
Coach Zen tweets the Black Hippie? What’s that all about? Check out the teaser above. Guess we’ll get the whole score this Monday…
“Hear the story behind Phil Jackson’s tweet to hip hop star Kendrick Lamar in this bonus cut from The Seth Davis Show. Catch the two-part interview this Monday, October 28th and Friday, November 1st at 1:30pm ET.”
K-Won Raekwon and Ghostface Killah come in from the slums of Shaolin to Fox Sports 1′s Crowd Goes Wild to talk basketball, boxing, and blogs. Host Regis got a new shirt and a new Wu title out of the deal, too. Check it out.
“I know many are wondering ‘what the hell is Mike Tyson gonna do up here on this stage tonight?’ And you know, frankly, I’m wondering the same thing.”
- Mike Tyson
If you spent the 90s spending money to watch Iron Mike Tyson perform live on pay TV (in the ring, one 90-second knockout at a time)… but didn’t get a chance to this century… we got you. Here’s the scoop: You can watch the former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion, main event on pay TV again soon; as his one-man stage show “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth” will broadcast on Home Box Office (HBO) Saturday, November 16, 2013, at 8PM EST.
“The journey is to 3… Three symbolizes to me a lot of what I believe in – The Father, The Son, The Holy Ghost… I needed to lean on my faith…”
Suffice it to say the game is more than basketball to champions. It’s life – mind, body & soul. But to watch this D. Wade documentary – Journey To 3 – you get a real chance to see the man being real. Miami Heat basketball is definitely the context, but watch for what you learn about the athlete taking care of himself, the man persevering through adversity, and the father being with and for his family. A lot expertly squeezed into half a half-hour.

Ever been working out, and your coach or trainer is pushing you to do one more? You might do that one more… or you might cheat yourself out of that last rep. How can you guarantee that you give all you have every rep, every time? Workout extreme Russian style; that’s how!
WARNING (as if we’d have to tell you): These Russian workouts (in the clip above) are EXTREMELY Dangerous! The extreme athletes in the video are 200 meters up. One slip, trip, or second of quit… and they don’t have to workout tomorrow… or ever! Look at this sh!t. CRAZY!
Now that Drake’s new album ‘Nothing Was The Same’ is getting some play on people’s sound systems he’s now making the media rounds at various outlets like ESPN’s First Take with Stephen A. Smith & Skip Bayless. In the clip above the Toronto kid speaks on his relationship with controversial Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. There’s more video below as he also speaks on his relationship with Lebron James…
FINALLY! Someone who knows speaks on it! Everybody’s coming down on recruitment programs at colleges like Oklahoma State University as though no other Division I school does the exact same thing. Watch as Jalen Rose gives you the real deal on what goes down during college athletic recruiting visits. As a member of Michigan’s famed ‘Fab Five’ who went on to play in the NBA… let’s just say Rose knows.
The fans, the fame, the interviews, the photo shoots, the social media… put that on Johnson (
Diddy). Then Calvin can be free to be ‘Megatron’ – the machine built for domination… and speed! Check out the latest Nike commercial featuring Diddy and Calvin Johnson. The ads have been pretty good watching so far. This is the second in the series. We posted the first on here earlier.
ESPN’s E:60 takes on the life journey so far of one Darrelle Revis. “Revis Island – The Darrelle Revis Story” takes us from Revis’ small-town upbringing and career beginnings in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania… to entering the nearby University of Pittsburgh… to joining the NFL and playing for the New York Jets… to tearing his ACL… and to getting traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers… all in the short clip above. Of course, Darrelle’s story is still being written.
Pro Football’s Calvin Johnson Has a ‘Bad Boy’ Alter Ego Handling His Business In This Nike Commercial (Video)
Calvin: Wow, Johnson looks a lot like…
Johnson: Nah, I’m Johnson.
Professional Football is a business… like selling athletic apparel. Those who play for a living operate in two halves; football and the rest. Gotta take care of the football, Calvin Johnson. And, Calvin Johnson, you gotta handle the business of being… well, Calvin Johnson.
It’d help Calvin to have an alter ego that could handle rest of his biz. Enter
Cee-Lo Throws Out The First Pitch at a Dodgers Game & Fields Questions About the New GooDie MOB’s LP & Upcoming Reality Show (Video)
The opening pitch from Cee-Lo. Not bad – better than some. What’s important… his GooDie MOB brothers (T-Mo, Big Gipp, & Khujo) are there to applaud and get his back for the interview. All at Dodger Stadium on the day of their album (“Age Against The Machine”) release. During the interview, Cee-Lo also talks about the group’s upcoming TBS reality show The Good Life, as well as the album.
Drugs, sex, controversy… Probably traits of a life story that should be made into a movie. Oh, it’s Pro Football Hall Of Famer Lawrence “LT” Taylor’s life? DEFINITELY should have been made into a movie by now! Well, Showtime has done it. One of the most controversial professional athletes in history, over the top drug abuse, and crimes of a sexual nature… yeah, LT’s life will make for a compelling subject for the documentary debuting Friday, September 20, 2013, at 8pm ET/PT.
Ah! The Force is strong with this one. Lebron James actually demonstrates the type of skill on the mic during interviews that one might expect of someone who is already a color commentator at courtside… or in the TV studio. Watch King James go through an “appropriate struggle” in naming his Top 4 NBA players of all time. Most noteworthy is who he left off the list. Hmmm…
I’ve been posting interesting stories & documentaries from VICE for a few years now. And this isn’t the first time we’ve posted their reports on North Korea, but what makes this particular trip back to North Korea wildly interesting is they’ve brought along the Harlem Globetrotters & former NBA bad boy Dennis Rodman. The news that VICE was returning to North Korea & that NBA champion Dennis Rodman agreed to go with them sent shockwaves throughout the world & had everyone around the globe talking. There’s moments of hilarity in this video captured this North Korea trip but it wasn’t at all perpetuated by Dennis Rodman. It was in the cultural differences & appearances the North Korean government was trying to keep up for their guests. Overall from watching this video of the trip to North Korea it’s clear that the Harlem Globetrotters may have left the biggest impact on this diplomatic exchange.
You think he’d have gotten around to doing this at least once in his life before now… but… nope! While Iron Mike Tyson is hanging out in the Fox Sports green room, he gets to play Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out on Nintendo for the first time. I wonder if he’ll figure out the secret to beating the Champ. To do that, he must first learn how to beat Glass Joe (the video game’s first and weakest opponent)!
