The Cleveland Cavaliers earned a convincing 4-0 series clean sweep against the Detroit Pistons in the opening round of this year’s NBA playoffs but can LeBron James and co. go on to win the title? Well, they’re certainly hitting form at the right moment and the Cavaliers definitely have enough star quality to challenge the likes of Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs for the crown. If nothing else, Cleveland have difference-makers on both sides of the ball and their top talents can more or less win matches by themselves when they are at their very best.

With the Golden State Warriors on the cusp of securing their place in the next round of the playoffs, Cleveland will have it all to do if they are to emerge victorious at the end of what could be a gruelling postseason. The Cavaliers have a much easier route to the NBA Finals than the defending champions, especially as Golden State – who may be without Stephen Curry for the next few weeks – could face the San Antonio Spurs in the not-so-distant future. If nothing else, Cleveland could take advantage of the less testing schedule and the Cavs may be fresher for the seven-match series for the title. Read the rest of this entry »

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Houston Rockets

Swaggy P almost made a huge mistake, but lucky for him Iggy Azalea was around to stop it from happening.  Halfway through a terrible back tattoo, Nick Young’s beau Iggy Azalea noticed something was off.  Check it out for yourself: Read the rest of this entry »

On April 28th in the heart of Grand Central’s Vanderbilt Hall, Gillette Clinical Clear Gel antiperspirant/deodorant and basketball superstar Carmelo Anthony will unveil the Gillette Pressure Chamber, where commuters, tourists, and local New Yorkers alike will have the unique opportunity to participate in an on-the-spot polygraph test.

LeBron
Could you imagine that the sports that you play could make you a millionaire? Sports were once something you do to relax, have a rest from a daily routine. It was never considered a serious job. Let us take a closer look at to what sports offer other than just some physical training and a break from reality.

Many famous sports stars have enjoyed success marketing themselves in the world of games. Often, sports players will act as the cover stars for games to promote them. Examples of this are Lionel Messi on the front of the FIFA games, and the EA sports game – Rory McIlroy PGA Tour. The famous ex-basketball star, Shaquille O’Neal, has also offered his name to slot machines and blackjack. With Kobe Bryant about to retire, could he follow the same path as his “frenemy” and former teammate?

Slot games

What makes branching out to casino games the perfect yet untrodden path for a retired sports star? At the moment the online casino business is booming, with slot machines being one of the most popular games around. The modern slot machine is designed in such a way that makes it ideal to be sponsored by stars, TV shows, or films, as each slot machine has its own theme. The design of the slot machine is very much based around its theme, so the Jurassic World game at 32Red slots uses dinosaur symbols on the reels, and the Incredible Hulk slot at Slot-Mania features cut scenes from the film along with Hulk-themed icons.

Turn on any nationally televised San Antonio Spurs home game, and you’ll hear a woman screaming and cheering for her team the entire time.  “Wooooooooooo!” “Come on, Timmy!”  “Go LaMarcus!”.  It never ends, and it’s been going on for at least 3 years.  A few years ago the woman in the above picture was identified as said fan.  I just hope the Spurs do the right thing and revoke (or at least relocate) her season tickets.

You’ve probably seen the ESPN commercial featuring a Latvian rap song repping the Knicks’ rookie phenom (I’m completely on board) Kristaps Porzingis.  The entire song is fire.  I understand nothing except “Kristaps Porzingis” in the entire song, but it’s currently in heavy rotation in my iTunes or Apple Music or whatever the kids are calling it these days.  Peep the commercial and the full song after the jump.

Lloyd Christmas: You know, I don’t really recall. Starts with an S! Let’s see. Swim? Swammi? Slippy? Slappy? Swenson? Swanson?
Harry Dunne: Maybe it’s on the briefcase.
Lloyd Christmas: Oh, yeah! It’s right here.
Lloyd Christmas: Samsonite! I was way off!

Dumb and Dumber.  That’s how I describe my first couple of articles about the Knicks’ Rookie Kristaps Porzingis.   Read the rest of this entry »

Godzingis. Porzin6is. Slim ‘Zingis. The Human Scarecrow. Whatever the youngbloods are calling Kristaps Porzingis nowadays, the Knicks’ rookie has impressed early this season.  The kid is a putback dunk machine.  Kristaps claimed another victim tonight when he threw down a putback slam on the entire country of Canada.  Check out the vine: Read the rest of this entry »

MarioHezonja

Immediately after the New York Knicks drafted the “Real-Life Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm-Flailing Tube Man” Kristaps Porzingis, the Orlando Magic picked “Super” Mario Hezonja.  Not only is it less of a mouthful to say his nickname, Hezonja has shown out as a possibly dominating force at the NBA’s Summer League while Porzingis has played OK, I guess (or a little better than anticipated) in Las Vegas.  I can’t help but wonder, did the Knicks draft the wrong international prospect?  Let’s take a look at how both rookies shined this summer: Read the rest of this entry »
