Talking ‘Bout Biggie And More: NBA’s John Starks Has Answers For ESPN’s ‘Highly Questionable’ (Video)
This episode of ESPN’s Highly Questionable will be highly memorable for one reason: Starks stuck to the ‘G’ Code… No snitching! Former NBA standout John Starks declares that Notorious B.I.G.’s song “I Got A Story To Tell” was not about him. It was about one of his New York Knicks teammates… You can guess all you want though… ’cause Starks will NOT speak on it!
But watch the whole video though. Memories and chuckles shared by the bag boy turned pro baller Starks.
Well, the United States basketballers beat New Zealand handily in their bid to win the FIBA World Cup. But New Zealand won the crowd, and the moment, with its pre-game war chant, the Haka. Several of the American athletes looked on with wonder and amazement at the spectacle. Great clip!
I don’t know if you ever did… but back in the day, I actually remember looking around before I laughed at a Iron Mike Tyson impression; wondering if the boxing champ could take a joke or would go off and randomly whupp an azz or three including me. Not saying I’mo just go out like a punk; but back in the day… squaring off with the Baddest Man On The Planet wasn’t good for your general health. Ask any prize fighter he dropped on the ring mat in 90 seconds or less.
But now, with his appearances, movies and stage plays and interviews poking fun at himself and even his past, the world gets a different Mike; less Iron, more amiable. And definitely funny! But who could have known just how funny? Well, Adult Swim on Cartoon Network had a clue; and now there is a series to prove it. Spoofing the ever spoofable “Scooby Doo Mysteries” cartoon show (and its many, many reboots), the “Mike Tyson Mysteries” will be on the Toon tube very soon (due out Fall 2014).
Check out the hilarious trailer above.
Too bad Chelsea Handler’s run on E! is almost done. This is a cool clip with her putting the NBA’s Chandler Parsons in the hot seat. She does that. A little ‘sex talk’ on Chelsea Lately.
Chelsea: “Are you allowed… to like have sex… They say you can’t have a lot of sex when you’re performing at that level, right?”
Chandler: “There’s…there’s definitely some sort of penetration during season.”
Hmm. Why is Chels so curious though? A li’l Handler on Chandler after Lately maybe? Heh… Seriously though, I’ve always dug the way Chandler Parson’s game when he was playing the Houston Rockets. I’m looking forward to him doing great things with the Dallas Mavericks.
Hahaaaa! Maybe call this clip ‘Minnesota Burning’ … without all the animosity or flames of the civil rights framed film (or of the first half of the Cleveland-Lebron saga). In fact, some might say…
Leaving is the most ‘Minnesota’ thing Kevin Love can do.

Well… Good luck in Cleveland, Kevin. Say hi to King James. Come back anytime.
Confirmed. Every athlete wants to be a rapper… EVERY… athlete. So, finally the Brothers Manning (Peyton and Eli) admit and act on the fantasy… together! HILARIOUS! Relax, it’s a spoof video for a fantasy…football league. It’s not like they’ll retire soon with major accomplishments in the sport, money, and a lot of time on their hands to pursue a post-NFL passion.
Okaaaay… we HOPE it’s a spoof video. Really…It’s for a DirecTV Fantasy Football ad (this time).
Lebron James Homecoming Party In Ohio Not Much Different Than The Miami Heat’s 2010 Pep Rally (Video)
Here’s the full video of Lebron James’ Homecoming party in Akron Ohio. In this full-length video Lebron states that he doesn’t plan on eventually leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers or the state of Ohio. It’s rather ironic how hypocritical fans & the media have been since Lebron decided to return to his home state. The Miami Heat inherited all of Lebron’s hate when he left & even protected him while he was playing in Miami. The pep rally & everything the Miami Heat did when Lebron & Chris Bosh joined D-Wade in Miami was criticized by the media, but his homecoming pep rally in this video was celebrated. You can say that now the Miami Heat have officially become ‘Villains’ or ‘Anti-Heroes’ largely because of Lebron. It wasn’t like that prior to 2010. Personally I don’t feel he should have left Miami after the way the Cavs owner Dan Gilbert & some of the racist comments & taunts from fans in Ohio acted. Ultimately it’s Lebron’s life to live and he ultimately has to do what’s best for him & his family. Barring injury or any other unforseen circumstance I believe he will be considered to be the best ever to play the game. We’ll see how things turn out up there for the long haul though because as Lebron said himself, he didn’t come back to make himself happy….He came back to try to make his city & state happy.

Considered to be Atlanta’s answer to NY’s Rucker Park, the AEBL (Atlanta Entertainment Basketball League) continues to grow quickly in popularity in only what I believe to be it’s second full season of existence. NBA stars such as Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard & many other entertainers have come out in support & to take in the games. This weekend proves to be no different & only better. It’s playoff time with the ‘final four’ of the tournament games taking place tonight at 6pm & the final championship game on Sunday in addition to a 3-point & Slam Dunk contest. If you happen to be in Atlanta, this is something you may definitely want to come out at Central Park 400 Merrits Ave in Atlanta. Shouts out to @AEBLHoops!
He’s not exactly ‘White Chocolate’ by looking at his hairstyle or swagger, but 6’1 basketball player Jordan Kilganon got busy up in New York City’s Rucker Park last week with a series of ill dunks. I believe the host of the event gave him the nickname ‘Mission Impossible’ loosely based on Jordan’s Tom Cruise inspired hair cut. Hahaaaaa! No matter what it’s easy to see ‘Mr. Mission Impossible’ has some hydraulics in his legs. Skill is skill son & Woody Harrelson’s character in the 1992 film ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ would be proud. Maybe he’ll come down & make an appearance in Atlanta this weekend with NBA stars like Dwight Howard for the ABEL (Atlanta Entertainment Basketball League)‘s upcoming 3-point & Slam Dunk contest this Sunday 8/8/14. The ABEL is Atlanta’s version of what goes down at the Rucker in New York City with games taking place Saturday at 6pm & contests on Sunday. Shouts to HoodMixtape & @AEBLHOOPS
Cool Cam Newton documentary. Covering mostly his moves in the off-season. Behind the scenes, rehab, return to his Auburn University stomping grounds (to go back to school mainly). Great stuff. All part of his story as told by the Huddle Up series from Greenlight Productions and sports clothier Under Armour.
This is just the first episode. Catch all the upcoming episodes as they are released at the Under Armour site.
Okay, direct comparisons aside, have you ever directly compared Kobe Bryant to Michael Jordan… move for move?
“Can’t we just agree that these guys are like phenomenal players and just move on?”
Nope! We gotta watch this cool montage of videos showing each mega-baller doing the same moves the same way; and appreciate NBA greatness mirroring NBA greatness!
Watch… Looks staged. But it’s okay. As long as it’s entertaining… “Have some water” (bwaaaahahahaaa).
I know what the video was ‘meant to show’ but I put dots together differently. Truth: We have had no real reason to get hyped about the heavyweight division in quite some time. But… Shannon Briggs? Last fight I saw him in was against Jason Statham in one of the “Transporter” movies. Even Statham has moved on.
But boxing history holds that the ring retires great fighters, especially heavyweights. In other words, a fighter keeps fighting until someone throws him a bonafide can’t-be-denied azz whuppin in the squared circle. Sure, every now and then you get a Lennox Lewis, who retires on high; but most heavyweights who were on top either fight in relative obscurity OR they had that one ‘ewww daaamn someone oughta stop this’ match (ex: Ali v. Holmes, Tyson v. Lewis… and Hollyfield should have been “retired” by the two that Lewis gave him).
To his credit, I don’t think Shannon got his “retirement whuppin” … but this hounding for the champ’s attention is long after what would be considered his career peak. Now, George Foreman had two careers, in essence; winning the title again well after what most would say was his prime. BUT even he had some “retirement” (once from Ali, sorta) and another from Axel Schulz, an German bruiser who was declared the loser that night even after knotting Foreman’s eye so high his shades rose off his face.
Perhaps the Klitschkos (Wladimir and Vitali work as a unit) deserve to work the game as a weakened division and early politics kept them out for a bit. Some (pointing at myself) say Lewis got away with murder …with a VERY controversial win over Vitali (watch the proof here for a few seconds) back in the day and retired without making it right. Maybe the Klitschkos feel justified in leaving like Lennox Lewis, still pretty, pretty healthy, and pretty much in a sound state of mind.
Oooh, @ojones1 are you saying this Briggs rah-rah is a set up to fuel promo for a title fight with he and Wladimir INSTEAD of facing true contenders? Well…I wrote it, huh? Guess I threw the brick. Can’t hide my hand now… It follows that someone would ask/blurt, “Well, who are these so-called contenders, O?” I’m glad you asked, me-acting-like-someone-asking-me-a-question… Allow me to quote Bleacher Report in my response:
Klitschko has not lost a fight since 2004. Since then, the gigantic heavyweight with fast hands and nimble feet has put together one of the more remarkable championship runs in heavyweight history. Klitschko is top dog at heavyweight. So is [Bryant] Jennings the guy to dethrone him? Is he the guy to bring the title back to the United States? Will he be the guy to bring American heavyweight boxing back from the doldrums?
“I think so,” said Jennings. “But I can’t do it alone. Trust me. I can’t do it alone. I’m one of the guys. I think that it’s just going to take more than one guy.” Jennings said he and fellow undefeated prospect Deontay Wilder were probably the two most exciting heavyweights in America right now, to go along with the United Kingdom’s Tyson Fury. He said a group of guys like that, which might include other fighters who have yet to emerge, could make the heavyweight division real exciting.
– Bleacher Report
AND Wilder has whupped MUCH azz (29-0, ALL KNOCKOUTS)… AND Wilder is from Tuscaloosa (where we make champions, Roll Tide)… AND Bleacher isn’t even touting him in the above writeup.
Yeah, there are more worthy fights to be made than Briggs v. Klitschko. So I say good try to this ‘smoke screen.’ But I don’t care wither way. For one, no one cares about the heavyweight division now (maybe that’ll change, but not now). But second, I like Pro Wrestling… and this ‘drama’ outside the ring leading to a pay-per-view showdown in the ring… works for me!
So… Who’s bringing the folding chairs? Gotta hit somebody with a folding chair to make it a pay per view, right?
Miami to Daytona to Atlanta to New York… to get on planes… to land… and get to Edinburgh… to London to Paris to Barcelona to Ibiza… woooo!
