How about that. “Top Five” is in the top five highest grossing films at the box office. Talk of Tinsel Town to be certain. Here we have Chris Rock talking with the gang at ESPN’s First Take about the movie, some favorite athletes, use of the n-word and more. Made a quick pass at the lovely co-host, too. Ha! Chris ain’t slick…
Looks like the Fight everyone has wanted might happen. Mayweather has challenged Pacquiao to make the fight happen May 2nd 2015. Well since the last time they tried to make this fight happen Pac-Man has lost two fights so some of the luster is gone. Regardless this would be a blockbuster draw for Pay Per View. Check out what our friends over at BeatsBoxingMayhem have to say about it!

Don’t be in a rush to find the next Michael Jordan…

But c’mon Mike. If folks were to name someone close, it’d be Kobe Bryant. Great clip. Once combatants; now steadfast friends. Looks like Mike is ‘b-ball big bro’ to Kobe. Hear what the two have to say about one another above.
Great sit-down footage as “Tom Terrific” talks shop (e.g. Patriots football) with former teammate and current FOX Sports commentator Randy Moss, asking the tough questions…
“Was Gronk’s catch better than mine?”
Two outstanding players speaking on many aspects of the sport they love. Good watching.
Easy to say; but hard to do. Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Be able to say it face-to-face. Explain yourself when merited. Agree or disagree on what is being said above by Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley (and Shaquille O’neal) , this is some honest talk…
(Yeah. Honest talk. If ya say “real talk” I probably can’t trust ya…)
Yooooo. 50’s son got skills… on the hardwood! Watch.
50 Cent’s son Marquise Jackson is a 5’9″ senior point guard at St. John’s Military Academy. This weekend Marquise showed that he could knock down threes and run a team. The son of the famous rapper scored 20 points against number 1 ranked prep school in the country Brewster Academy and shot 75% from the field. Last season he averaged 19.1 points per game, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists on his way to 1st Team All Region at King’s Ridge Christian Academy in Alpharetta, Georgia.
New Orleans’ NBA Franchise Should Change Name To “Scorpions” While Anthony Davis Is Becoming A Star (Video)
It’s no question that Anthony Davis is going to be a significant star in the NBA, but I just wish New Orleans would change the name of that dang franchise. I mean c’mon man…. The Pelicans?! I’ve said it on twitter several times over they should change the name to the “New Orleans Scorpions.” Ever since the Charlotte Bobcats changed their name back to Hornets they’ve had impressive sales & huge response from fans in the city. I believe if New Orleans would switch to “Scorpions” they would do the same. I know I spent too much time on this issue instead of Anthony Davis, but I just had to get it off my chest. Make it happen New Orleans…

Oh. And Rand University? Check out where it is. Man!
A shoe game, fashion and lifestyle video short, presented as a laid back look at Allen I’s coming up in Philly, being a b-baller, relating to fans, keeping it real with himself and his folks and more.
In his own words, Allen Iverson explains the details of the VILLA x Reebok Question Pump “A Day in Philly” including his love for style, Bentley’s, Friday’s and of course the city of Philadelphia.
You know… when you grow up to be 5’5″ tall, and play basketball… you can get so far. Someone will coach you up; let you play… like through high school or so. After that you are likely on your own. At 5’5″ and want to slam dunk? Man, you are on your own!
Fine by Brandon Todd. He decided he wanted to dunk…hard. So tried hard, studied hard, worked out extraordinarily HARD and applied what he learned (about physical development)… and… well, watch!
“You see someone small. Don’t count them out!”

Great story. Inspirational. Call the kids over to watch with you.
So, yeah. CRAZY! A bike takes the starting line to race a Ferrari. Okay, a rocket bike… okay a record-breaking 400+ mile-per-hour running, track-slaying… awww f#ck it… let’s get to the… er… race (if we can even call it that).
On November 7th of 2014, on the famous Circuit Paul Ricard located at Le Castellet in South of France, François Gissy has reached an incredible speed of 333 km/h on the rocket-propelled bicycle designed by his friend Arnold Neracher. More than 300 km/h on a skinny and completely stripped bicycle, this is amazing, and crazy! Who thought that one day a daredevil on a bicycle, with a rocket under the saddle, could travel the quarter mile in less than 7 seconds?
Straight jetted and smoked dat azz. HA!
A happier, rooting-for-the-Raiders, game geared up, dressed down, chilled out Ice Cube talking to Rich Eisen. A little about his movie “22 Jump Street” DVD release and a LOT about the Raiders. Raider Nation baby! Check out the cool convo.
(Oh, and he talked up the NWA movie and his son starring as a young Ice Cube.)
Here’s a good idea… or good idea for a laugh. “True Detective” casting reboot for Season 3 with Shaq and Sir Charles playing co-leads. What do you think?
Since “True Detective” Season 2 have already cast their new pairing, we decided to get ahead of the game for Season 3. We auditioned the legendary duo of Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley. Watch to see their auditions and the trailer of “True Detective” Season 3.

Allen Iverson. One of those names that makes you envision hard hooping at a high level automatically. Now retired, from the court; but he still has much to say about the game.
Like coaching? Nah, according to Iverson himself, nobody wants that. Hahaaa. But what’s interesting in the clip above… Allen I’s all-time starting five… And remember, this is from a guy who’s recruiting class included Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Stephon Marbury, Ray Allen, Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash.
