Ray Allen Knows His Move From Boston To Miami Was Hard On The Fans. But Management & Teammates, They Should Understand… It Was Business (Video)

Plain talk from former Celtics standout Ray Allen. Here he is in Shanghai, telling his side of the story. In essence, he is letting viewers & fans know that it wasn’t him wanting to leave Boston, it was the Celtics… not doing what it took to keep him there. No beef with nobody on his side, even though some folks apparently reeeeally had HEAT for him for taking his talents to South Beach.

Ray Allen spoke in an exclusive interview with Tencent’s Lisa Hsu about the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, Paul Pierce and being a champion. Tencent, ESPN’s partner in China, is hosting its annual Super Penguin Basketball Celebrity Game in Shanghai.

Makes some good points in this interview. Pro sports is BUSINESS, not personal. And there is NO loyalty. The Celts could have dropped Allen, and that would be that; not a tear shed.

Chris Paul Speaks On Leaving The Clippers And Linking Up With James Harden And The Rockets To Win A Championship Ring (Video)

This just in: Chris Paul is now a Houston Rocket.

Sorta. The news is a couple of days old. But the shock waves are still being felt, and the impact of the collapse of whatever ‘bridge’ between Paul and the Clippers organization… Well, folks are gonna try to put some scale to that in the months to come; no doubt. But the nuances in this clip – Paul’s poised (carefully worded) responses to questions, how joining James Harden on a new team might play out and even how cute Paul’s son’s (little Chris) wishes for his competitive dad “played” out – make for an intriguing watch.

Chris Paul sits down with Shelley Smith and talks about his six-year run with the Clippers, his relationship with James Harden and the challenge of stopping the Warriors.

Sorry Team Jordan, Tracy McGrady Is Picking Lebron James. Final Answer! (Video)

We agree with Tracy McGrady….. Fight us!

(Respect to Paul. He had his points. But Lebron had more points. Ha! PLUS he uplifts teammates. And he actually looks to pass the ball. But, you watch and decide, and do you.)

Sports: Lebron James’ Free Throw Style Is In A Constant State Of Change (Video)

Lebron James has had yet another stellar season, and talk of him replacing Air Jordan as the heir to the title of Best Baller Of All. His free throw game has been kind of lame (on the low) but he has been trying to fix it. Trying VERY hard. And ESPN has been eyeballing and has taken the time to elucidate every time King James has changed his style up in an attempt to do better at the line.

Damn. They even gave each switch up name!

Shaq And Charles ‘Beef’ Over Chicken Wings On Set (Video)

Alright, by now we know Charles Barkley is a Hall Of Famer… at chicken wings AND at chastizing co-color commentator Shaquille O’Neal. Oh, and at basketball. Haaa! Barkley has NO chill going at The Diesel! But Shaq pulls NO punches either in this [sort of uncomfortable] on-set ‘disagreement.’

This Inside The NBA segment goes off the rails when Shaq and Charles Barkley threaten to punch and throw chicken wings at each other while trading barbs.

Okay, okay. They both pull ‘punches’ (meaning nobody got punched). But it got tense. Watch.

Philadelphia 76’er Joel Embiid Makes A Play For Rihanna At The Bar (Video)

I mean… look at myself!

Hahaaaaa! You know how some athletes might clam up, play tough or off-brush when talk show hosts hint at blatantly push a love-life line of questionning? That is NOT Joel Embiid’s problem…AT ALL!

Shoot your shot, player! Not mad at you. Of course, you might consider that Jamele Hill is looking pretty nice and Kelly Rowland is hella sexy (as always); and they’re right there.

Because we’re considering it. Yeaaahhh, considering all that right now…

Sports: 2 Chainz Shows Out On Kevin Garnett’s Home Court At Area 21 (Video)


Remember when 2 Chainz took on The Human Highlight Reel aka Dominique Wilkins? Well, go back to that post here… AFTER you watch what we have here above… because Titty Boi 2 Pointer is balling with the Big Leaguers again. And he is giving them enough to where the NBA’ers have to give him some talk back. Get ’em 2 Chainz. Rep the ATL well!

That tape – “Putting It On KG’s Azz” (pause) – is gonna be that fire (um, pause again, just in case). Hahahaaaa!

Bonus behind the scenes trash talk from the pro-ballers after the jump. A whole other thing. Really good though.

NBA Standout Dwayne Wade Speaks On Leaving The Heat For The Windy City And Getting A Warm Reception And More (Video)

It’s only a six-minute clip but there is a lot in there (including precious seconds of screen time with gorgeous wifey Gabrielle Union). D Wade joining D Rose in Chicago certainly signals the Bulls desire to win rings, but other things ring true in this clip. Concerned about making the most of his remaining time (even referencing his long-gone youth, when he was ‘able to sit Indian style’ and dream about playing for the Bulls), getting the best contract and competitive situation for himself…all that and more…factored into Dwayne Wade’s decision to make that move from Miami. Watch him talk all about it above.

Dwayne Wade speaks with Cari Champion about his decision to sign with his hometown Chicago Bulls, his welcoming discussion with Jimmy Butler, and what message LeBron James and Chris Paul told him before signing.

(SportsCenter’s Cari Champion is definitely looking lovely in this interview, too. Bonus!)

Steve Stoute – mogul, music exec, mover-and-shaker – has partnered with Kaz of and they are making a late major move, taking the online presence over to the print industry. Interesting, very interesting, as the media world seems to be moving off-page to online (e.g. the opposite direction). But we MUST hear these guys out; especially Stoute. Why?? Don’t tell us you don’t know about Stout’s marketing agency Translation LLC, the origin story of the tagline/jingle for McDonald’s “I’m Loving It” campaign, the State Farm ads…

Nate Robinson: Is A Pro Football Career A Slam Dunk For The Former NBA All-Star? (Video)

You’ve watched sports contests on the tube, and from time to time likely thought, “Look at the big man. He could bowl ’em over on the field as easily as he bangs down low to the bucket,” or… “Dude can move! Even at his size, he’s dunking over the crossbar AFTER leaving everybody 20 yards behind!”

Let’s call them crossover [football or basketball] ballers. Now, who among the retired greats of one sport do you think could come back and do the damn thang in the other? Quickly… times up! How about Nate Robinson? Is anybody thinking Nate Robinson can do it? Well, Nate is…and he could give a damn whether you agree or not.

Nate Robinson, the three time Slam Dunk champion and one of the most dynamic athletes in NBA history is considering a run at the NFL. Friends (Jamal Crawford, Glen Davis), former coaches (Rick Neuheisel), and NFLers (Marcedes Lewis, Brendon Ayanbadejo) think Nate has what it takes. Do you?
