LeBron gets heckled at an amusement park.

You can hear people yell “I bet you miss”, “‘Bron shoot left-handed, your elbow hurts”, “Just like Game 5.” as LeBron misses all the shots that he takes at the basketball game.

Normally I’d feel bad for celebrities getting heckled in public but fuck LeBron.

LeBron James can blow me.

I heard about LeBron James’ little tweet…He’s making a list of people that said something bad about him. Well, I want to make sure my name is on that list, because I thought that little one-hour special was a punk move. I thought them dancing on stage was a punk move…Him joining Dwayne Wade’s team was disappointing to me…If he wants to take that as criticism, so be it. He know where I be. I’m easy to find. I’m on TV every week.

Chris Johnson — the superstar running back on the Tennessee Titans — got a 99/100 skill rating in the new Madden NFL 11 … but according to Chris, having the highest rating in the game just ain’t enough. Johnson tells TMZ, he’s honored his character got such a high rating in the game … but according to him, anything less than 100/100 isn’t accurate — “In real life, I’m 100% unstoppable. I got no home. I run for days.”

Will.I.Am - It’s A New Day (Mashup-Germany edit)


This is being shared for FOUR reasons:
1) Listen to how terrifically happy it is. Christ, who needs drugs anyway!

2) I have a new-found appreciation for Will.I.Am & I’m not afraid to admit it.
3) It’s been on repeat in my house ALL DAY while my mother and I drink mass amounts of wine and completely purge everything.
4) It will severely decrease the costs of therapy I owe to Vlad for listening to me ramble about anything and everything all the time.

I remember when I was inducted into the Hall of Fame and they gave me my Hall of Fame yellow blazer. I wore it for two straight days. Finally my wife was in bed and said she wanted to make love but that I had to take the coat off. I refused and kept the blazer on because I wanted to perform like a Hall of Famer on the field and off.

61-Year-Old Writer for 'The Atlantic' Passes Test That Albert Haynesworth Can't

sbnation:

bunch:

Albert Haynesworth is being paid $37 million over three years to play professional football in the NFL, and he is officially in worse shape than a 61-year old. Say what you will about rookie salaries, they’re certainly not the ONLY problem with the NFL’s player compensation approach. [via]

ESPN Officially Kills Lebron James Vegas Story, Claims Reporter Didn't Identify Himself

sbnation:

This has bullshit written all over it. Apparently ESPN doesn’t realize that once you post something to the Internet, there is no turning back. They can’t kill the story, it’s already out there.

This just goes to further prove that ESPN is taking orders from Lebron’s camp, which we already knew after “The Decision” aired. While their “30 for 30” series is incredible, they’ve crossed the line from journalism to public relations hacks. Some would say they did that a long time ago, and this is just the latest and most glaring example.

His people called, not LeBron himself, and had the story pulled: this is far more likely than trained professionals editing and publishing a story accidentally. This is not what ESPN’s official statement is, but again, we’re not accusing them of lying here—just of having a very broad understanding of “the editorial process.”

Coming on the heels of “The Decision,” the most bizarre University of Phoenix infomercial ever, this looks horrible for ESPN, whose own ombudsman condemned the network’s decision to air the hour-long LeBron interview and the lack of editorial control the network had in dealing with LeBron and his entourage. You know the network values entertainment over journalism, and they know they do, but the pretense just made me feel so much better about the whole thing. Like eating a fried chicken salad and not just the fried chicken, I liked the greenery giving me the illusion of health and balance in my diet.
