Take a look as Dwyane Wade surprises one of his biggest fans (Archbishop Carroll High senior Nicole Muxo) by attending her prom! Like his YouTube channel says, ‘Dwyane helps make a fan’s dream come true by showing up unexpectedly at her prom in Coral Gables, FL.’
“She actually DM’d me on Twitter and said, ‘This is the address, this is where I’m gonna be just in case,’ and when I got that I said I won’t be doing nothing tomorrow night and I can go and make this a memorable moment for her.”
Now, you gotta admit that that was kool. Bravo, D. Wade.
Take a nap… Then champagne and campaign! Now, that’s hilarious (and true). Amen, Mr. Rose. Pay attention as Jalen Rose breaks down the ‘after-work’ life of those in NBA circles – like J. R. Smith (and himself) – in a way regular working folk can understand.
‘Jalen Rose explains to David Jacoby that in an NBA player’s lifestyle going to the nightclub late at night is no different than a 9 to 5 worker going to happy hour.’

You say what you want about Miami Heat All-Star Chris Bosh but this dude is hilarious with all the situations that seem to happen with him. Self-inflicted suspect photobombs or not one thing for sure is you can’t deny the guy can play basketball. This ESPN mini-documentary with Lisa Salters exposes Chris Bosh for who he really is…..just a geeky, nerdy, yet highly intelligent former Georgia Tech student who had an interest in engineering & computer programming. To Chris Bosh’s wife he’s just a “goofball” who in more ways than one is just an entertainer at heart. Despite some of the negativity he’s received it’s kinda cool to see Chris Bosh won’t allow anything to affect his sense of humor.
Legendary NBA coach Phil Jackson has coached 2 of the greatest NBA players to have ever played the game. For years he’s dodged the primary question most sports fans & reporters have desperately wanted him to answer. Now that he’s making the media rounds promoting his new book, Phil Jackson is finally speaking out. Phil Jackson compares Air Jordan to the Black Mamba in the above video of his interview with Jay Leno. Jay referenced Jackson’s book, Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success (due out May 21, 2013; available for pre-order at Amazon) in guiding their talk in this direction. In it, and in the above clip, Coach Jackson declares that both Jordan and Bryant are world class competitors; matched up in several aspects, but there are key differences, according to one of the few men in the world who can really say so. Coach ‘Zen Master’ also talks about how he set up a meeting between the two and his near-return to the Los Angeles Lakers’ bench. Kobe recently took to twitter & didn’t exactly seem too pleased with his former coach’s comparisons. I’d have to agree with Phil though….

Ballin’ at the ball game… courtside… BAWSE! Rick Ross and his son take in game 2 of the Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls game 2 of the NBA Playoffs. Ultimate gift: Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat gives Ross’ son the shoes he wore in the game! That makes it a rather historic & special event for a young kid I’m sure he’ll never forget. As the series heads back to Miami tomorrow with the team up 3-1 on the Chicago Bulls it looks like my favorite team the Miami Heat are closer to another historic run for an NBA Championship. Let’s go HEAT! #TEAMHEAT
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. dropped by the Angie Martinez show to talk (part 1 above, more after the jump)… about his victory over Robert Guerrero, about 50 Cent, and about his upcoming fights, and more. Now that Floyd is out, and he and Manny are both still in the fight game, will they get that Pacquiao v. Mayweather fight to happen soon? Well…
An impressive montage of an impressive career so far. This is an NBA short of compiled LeBron James footage, the Miami Heat superstar having won his 4th MVP award.
Although the fight is over with Mayweather winning people may have missed this… We didn’t though. Take a look. All the Showtime’s All Access series episodes building up to the recent Mayweather vs. Guerrero fight. Sho Sports did a good job helping bill this showdown as a worthy fight. Check it out. Episode 1 above, with the rest after the jump. Narrated by Common.

NBC’s Saturday Night Live takes a shot at the recent high-cost, high society wedding of NBA great Michael Jordan to Yvette Prieto. The main ‘shooters’… Jason Sudeikis and guest host Zach Galifianakis played jugglers (Lee and Leslie Ocean from ‘Objects in Motion’) hired to perform at Jordan’s reception. Comedy ensues… with the two (and other ‘wedding guests’) poking fun at the newlyweds in the sketch clip above. Hilarious! Especially the ‘Dikembe Mutombo speech.’
Most of us have never lived the life of an NBA basketball star & its rare when you get some truly candid insight into the stuff that’s rarely ever talked about unless you speak to some of the players personally. (I’ve heard many interesting first-hand stories from NFL & NBA players I must say). While speaking with Bill Simmons on the Grantland podcast, former NBA star & current analyst Jalen Rose spoke on all the distractions that go on for NBA players. It goes without saying that some of the problems revolve around women. No matter the classification be it “wives”, “girlfriends”, “jump-offs”, or “road kill” they can all be uncomfortable distractions if you don’t know the rules & juggle them right. Hahaaaaa!

In case there’s a reader or two that doesn’t recognize, let me say this: Barry Sanders is an NFL all-time great! Check out the video above – showing how he’s been toting that pigskin like a star since high school. The former Detroit Lions’ running back now has a book, “Now You See Him.” This clip below is from the intro portion of the DVD that comes with the book.
Iron Mike cleansing his soul more and more in the media nowadays. Above he confesses: More money, more problems… and that hurting people was a high that cost him too much (his soul). Man. Deep! Check out the clip from Mike Tyson’s appearance on Howard Stern’s show. Full audio of the interview below….
ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi brings viewers JaMarcus Russell’s story: Mobile (Alabama, USA) high school football stand-out, All-SEC quarterback at Louisiana State University, Number 1 pick in the National Football League… then out of the League after three seasons. With the 2013 NFL Draft set to go down tomorrow & some NFL executives even claiming that this maybe the worst draft class in a decade, various stories past & present are surfacing of some of the biggest busts in NFL history. It’s no question that whenever people speak of the biggest busts in NFL history JaMarcus Russell’s name is one of the first that’s brought up. As a hardcore Oakland Raiders fan I was very disappointed in JaMarcus’s stint with my favorite NFL team, but I’m not knocking his attempts to make it back into the league although the odds are not in his favor.
Interesting episode from ‘Life + Times’ on Indiana Pacer Paul George. ‘Life + Times’ is curated by Shawn Carter aka Jay-Z.
‘JAY Z’s Life + Times follows Indiana Pacers’ forward Paul George in Houston as he prepares for his first appearance in the NBA All-Star game and discusses his insatiable appetite for victory.’
Aasif Mandvi (staff ‘reporter’ on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) sticks it to the NCAA… in a comical way, of course. Jon Stewart’s show is about comedy first; but a lot of what’s funny on the show is true… REALLY true! Especially on this episode clip. C’mon now. You don’t think the NCAA really cares about the athletes, do you? Sure, they care about the athletes’… ability to put butts in seats, to put eyes on tubes, to put video games in kids’ XBox console… to make dollar$$$! But not about the athletes themselves. Not for real. Just watch the vid. Get ‘em Aasif!
Well, Bubba Watson officially has the coolest golf cart ever…because it is a HOVERCRAFT!
U.S. Masters Champion Bubba Watson and Oakley set out to create the world’s first hovercraft golf cart. The result, the BW1, is is golf course transportation that can glide over any terrain type there (and water), without damaging the grass. Will this bring more folks out to the links to try the age old Scottish game of strategy? Maybe, but most may never get out of the cart!
