On Sunday, the Oklahoma City Thunder dealt star guard James Harden to the Houston Rockets in a trade that caught the sports world by surprise.

One of those surprised by the trade was Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade, who called Thunder’s trade of Harden to the Rockets “shocking.”

“It was shocking but they made the move they felt was right for them,” Wade said, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst. The Miami Heat beat the Thunder in 5 games to win the NBA title earlier this year.

Rapper Lil Wayne was invited to sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh inning of Game Six of the NLCS between the San Francisco Giants vs St. Louis Cardinals at AT&T Park on Sunday. Weezy wasn’t bad at all. He did surprisingly well. Also this weekend, I bumped into Weezy’s daughter, Reginae, and her mother, Toya Wright, inside Jeffrey shoe boutique at Phipps Plaza. Reginae is a sweetie pie! She even helped me pick out a pair of shoes. Reginae has good taste! :)

Alexis Welch is one lucky woman. She stood by her man, NBA star A’mare Stoudemire, when he was out sowing his wild oats, and he rewarded her loyalty by asking her to be his wife. Most women would have bounced at the first sign of cheating (especially with a public figure like Ciara). But Welch (age unknown) realized that a man is going to be a man — and regardless of what he does in the streets, her role is to be a good mother to his children.

Stiletto Jill reports that Alexis attended Fall 2013 bridal shows with Stoudemire’s credit card looking for that perfect wedding gown to wear when she walks down the aisle with A’mare at their wedding next year. Some of the designers included Ines Di Santo, Reem AcraKenneth Pool, Christos and Rivini. Good for her!

    First, the Atlanta Falcons overpowered the hapless Washington Redskins — knocking out star quarterback Robert “RG3” Griffin III in the process. Griffin, 22, left the game in the 3rd quarter following a vicious clothesline hit from Atlanta linebacker Sean Weatherspoon.

    Griffin suffered a cut lip and what the Redskins described as a “mild concussion”. It was more like a case of lost nerves. RG3’s NFL career will be brief if he heads to the locker room after every NFL-size hit. He’s playing with the big boys now. He will need to toughen up.

    The Falcons went on to defeat the Redskins by a score of 24-17 to remain undefeated at 5-0 for the first time in Falcons franchise history.

    Falcons running back Michael Turner celebrated his touchdown in the team’s win over the Denver Broncos by tossing back a few too many drinks Monday night.
