Wow this kid is flying he almost kills defender in the process.
This is beyond messed up this guy decides to propose to his girlfriend at the Ucla game, not only did his girl say no watch & see what she does. She must have been cheating on him and felt guilty is my opinion.
2K Sports released NBA 2K12 Demo earlier this week, and by the looks of it could be the best one yet. Though the NBA 2012 season looks bleak NBA 2K12 gives fans something to look forward to.
Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton is currently wanted for murder. He has been charged in the fatal shooting of 22-year-old Jullian Jones, a mother of four who was gunned down Aug. 19 on an Atlanta street. Crittenton allegedly killed Jones with shots fired from a dark-colored SUV, police said. Investigators don’t believe Jones was the intended target. Crittenton’s motive appeared to be retaliation for an April robbery in which Crittenton was a victim. He played 113 NBA games (including 22 with the Lakers in 2007-08), and was also a key piece in the trade to land Pau Gasol. Crittenton’s pro career was derailed by a gun-related incident involving Gilbert Arenas in the Wizards’ locker room during the 2009-10 season, leading to a lengthy suspension.
CBS recently released its top 5 to the its Eyes On Basketball Elite 100 list. Their goal was to create the best ranking of players based on total value, which consisted of everything from respect, status and upside to statistical production and intangibles. Three NBA bloggers ranked every player, then they took the averages to determine their rankings.
This list in my opinion is all screwed up, who the hell was responsible for the release of this list? After his finals performance I don’t think Lebron should be #1 on this list, heck I don’t think he should be above Dirk or Wade at this point. Kobe’s a little low for me but I am a Lakers fan so I’ll just accept the ‘hes aging argument’. Blake Griffin in the top 10 is just ludicrous, as well as putting Pau and Amar’e higher than Melo and Deron Williams. I also feel Deron is a better PG at this point his career than Russell Westbrook but an argument can be made for both. Kevin Love at 18!? Your joking right? Andrew Bynum got a very generous 25 considering his injury troubles and inconsistent play (did I say I was a Lakers fan? Lol). As the list goes on it gets worse with guys like Joakim Noah and Andre Iguodala making the top 30 be for players like: Rudy Gay, Danny Granger, and Gerald Wallace. Take a look at the top 40 let me know what you think. Heres the link to 41-100 on the list: http://www.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/entry/22748484/31276005

Other Notable Screw Ups
- At 42 David West above guys like Joe Johnson (44), Josh Smith (45), James Harden (46), Luis Scola (48), Ray Allen (49), and Tyreke Evans (50)
- At 62 Elton Brand above Brandon Jennings (66) and Devin Harris (72)
- Danilo Gallinari is too high at 73 for me.
- JJ Reddick at 96 above Ron Artest (97) and Brandon Roy (100)
Kobe made an appearence at the Drew League in Los Angeles where he hit the game winning shot over James Harden to give his team the 139-137 win.
Lebron James was recently in Taiwan as part of his agreement with Nike. Somebody should have told him to bring his game and some effort on the trip with him. The video shows the Taiwanese player lunge and knock the ball away from James, leading to a dunk on the other end.
Reports are that The University of Miami football program has been implicated in an improper-benefits scandal allegedly involving dozens of players over much of the past decade. A former Miami booster, Nevin Shapiro (currently serving a 20 year prison sentence for masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme) told Yahoo Sports that he provide benefits to as much as 72 of the university’s football players and other athletes between 2002 and 2010. In the interview, Shapiro stated he gave money, cars, yacht trips, jewelry, televisions, and other gifts to a number of players. He also claims that then-Miami football and basketball coaches had full knowledge that he was braking NCAA rules. Shapiro said he once paid $10,000 to help secure the commitment of a basketball recruit, and that Frank Haith (then-Miami basketball coach) acknowledged the transaction in a conversation.
The NCAA is investigating the matter, which could lead to significant sanctions for the accomplished program. The University of Miami often refered to as ‘The U’, is known for being a football factory giving us players like: Jim Kelly, Warren Sapp, Sean Taylor, Jim Otto, Michael Irvin, Frank Gore, Ray Lewis, Devin Hester, Ed Reed, and Andre Johnson to name just a few. Miami has won five national titles since their program began in 1926, their last coming in 2001. But the program has struggled in recent years, it has also been found guilty of major violations on five occasions, most recently in 2003. This investigation could lead to the demise of a program that many of us witness dominate and produce hall of fame and pro bowl football players for most of the decade. With schools like USC and Ohio State currently on the hot seat, outsiders are beginning to notice the length at which these schools are willing to go to stay on top. Even if they have to break the rules of the NCAA.
