Emo rapper Aubrey Drake Graham is set to host the 2014 ESPY Awards. The 27-year-old Canadian rapper is known to have an affinity for hard leg professional athletes. Although sports purists are complaining bitterly about Drake’s ESPY hosting duties, his credentials as a
team mascot “global ambassador” for the Toronto Raptors NBA franchise uniquely qualifies him to handle the ESPYs gig.
Darren Sproles’ wife Michel Sproles took to social media to express her disgust over the way the NFL’s NEw Orleans Saints organization is treating her husband. Sproles was traded to Philadelphia on Wednesday, ESPN reports. The 30-year-old running back had verbalized a desire to be released by the Saints.
The NY Knicks officially signed former Antonio Spurs guard Shannon Brown to one of two open roster sports today, Sports Illustrated reports.
There is speculation that Brown, 28, was brought in to fill the spot soon-to-be vacated by departing point guard Raymond Felton, whose legal troubles are mounting. Felton plans to be in the starting lineup for the Knicks in tonight’s game against the defending NBA champs Miami Heat.
NBA MVP LeBron James may have fractured his nose when he was blocked by Serge Ibaka during a drive to the basket late in the 4th quarter of the Miami Heat vs Oklahmoa City Thunder in Oklahoma last night. The Heat easily defeated the Thunder 103-81.
James, 29, was actually hit twice by Ibaka as he drove to the basket for a dunk to cap off his 33 points in 33 minutes night. The NBA refs did not call either foul. This is typical of the biased NBA referees who routinely look the other way when LeBron is attacked in the paint by opposing teams.
R&B Diva Monica Brown put on her game face while cheering on the San Antonio Spurs who defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 104-100 in a close game at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC on Saturday, Feb. 8.
San Antonio signed Mo’s husband, Shannon Brown, to a 10-day contract to fill in for guards Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard who are both on the injured list. Brown entered the game with 9.5 seconds left in the 4th quarter to replace Kemba Walker, who fouled out. Monica wrote in the photo caption: “#MyFaceWhenTheOtherTeamScores #RollsEyes then I won’t look for 3 seconds.”
The few fans outside of Seattle who stuck around to watch the end of last night’s boring Super Bowl game were treated to a visual of Richard “I am not a Thug” Sherman screaming his head off.
