Jay Z Beyonce Lebron Savannah

Last night, Beyonce and her husband, rapper Jay Z, far left, attended the 2012 Sportsman of the Year event honoring exceptional athletes who excelled in their sport this year. Naturally, LeBron James, 2nd from right, who led his Miami Heat team to the NBA title, won the highest honor of the night. His fiancee, the lovely Savannah Brinson, far right, was there to cherish the moment with her man. It was obvious from her body language that she loves LeBron unconditionally -- despite rumors of infidelity which every woman faces at some point in their lives. On the other hand, Beyonce's body language indicates she is over Jay-Z.

Tim Duncan Tony Parker Halloween photo

A Halloween prank photo circulating the Internet may keep the San Antonio Spurs in David Stern's dog house.

The NBA commissioner slapped the Spurs with a $250,000 fine last week for sending their starters home to rest rather than play the defending champs Miami Heat during a nationally televised game in Miami.

The photo shows Spurs superstars Tim Duncan, left, and Tony Parker, right, dressed in Halloween costumes and holding guns to the head of a party guest dressed like NBA ref Joey Crawford.

The photo of Duncan wielding a sawed off shotgun -- and Parker holding a toy automatic weapon -- to the guest's head was taken during a party at a hotel or private residence.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall suggests that some NFL players may be popping Viagra for the drug's performance-enhancing capabilities.

We know that a few well-known rappers regularly pop Viagra, but it seems professional athletes are abusing prescription drugs to give them an unfair advantage over their opponents.

Deanna Nolan and Dorothea Sanchez-Nolan

Last week the news broke about the arrest of former WNBA star Chamique Holdsclaw who took a bat to her ex-girlfriend's car and fired a handgun into it.

Holdsclaw isn't the only WNBA player to be arrested for assaulting or threatening her lesbian lover.

Professional basketball player Deanna "Tweety" Nolan, 33, was arrested earlier this year for beating the air out of her wife and mother of her 2 children.

Very little, if any, news coverage was given to the Deanna/Dorothea fisticuffs.

Lakers Fire Coach Mike Brown

The LA Lakers front office handed coach Mike Brown his walking papers after just 5 games.

The Lakers landed at the bottom of the NBA Western Conference with a dismal 1-4 record after breaking the bank to sign Steve Nash and Dwight Howard.

Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant reportedly expressed frustration with Brown's coaching strategy in the days leading up to his sacking. Bryant's angry stare at Brown in the closing seconds of the Lakers' loss to Utah on Nov. 7 set tongues wagging.

Brown becomes the 3rd Lakers head coach to lose his job due to Kobe's tantrums.

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.

    Rap mogul Jay Z will officially open the brand new Barclay's Center with a concert tonight. The 675,000-square-foot arena in Brooklyn, NY is home to the Brooklyn Nets. Without Jay Z's influence this night would probably never happened.

    The 42-year-old rapper, real name Shawn Carter, used his political clout and business connections to move the former New Jersey Nets to Brooklyn, which is just a stone's throw from his former stomping grounds where he dealt drugs as a wayard teen.
