  • Every Alonzo Mourning Reference In Rap On One Song
    3,844 Views
    Quick, who was the first pick in the 1992 NBA Draft?  Here’s a hint, “not a Christian Laettner, not Alonzo Mourning.”  Any 90s child NBA/rap fan has heard this line from Shaq on Fu-Schnickens’ infectious 1993 jam “What’s Up Doc?

    Tensions between the Thibodeau-led Chicago Bulls and the Miami heat have been high since LeBron joined the in the 2010-2011 season, which is the same season Thibs started as head coach and Derrick Rose matured into a bonafide superstar.  Recently, Joakim Noah said on record that he "really hates the Heat," so we took some choice photos from the past five game series between the two teams to see...

    Halftime at any sporting event is usually the time when folks go to the bathroom, get refreshments and talk amongst themselves about the game. For Waka Flocka Flame, halftime is no time for an intermission. Instead, it’s a period to continue carrying the heat.   So is the case with the latest mixtape in Waka’s DuFlocka series, DuFlocka Rant: Half-Time Show The 19-track opus,...
  • All Red Nike Air Yeezy 2 Not Releasing?

    Last night on SNL Kanye West laced up a pair of Air Yeezy 2's in an all red "Raging Bull" colorway. While sneakerblogs lit up with the possibility these would release, others were skeptical. First of all, Kanye West is allowed to design a shoe with Nike every 2 years. Last year we saw the Yeezy 2, which would slate the Yeezy 3 for a 2014 release. While Kanye's exact contract is not available,...

    This week on Charts Don't Lie some of the less consistent rappers have fallen off, while others prove they're on the charts for the long-term. We already knew Justin Timberlake would be here awhile, after he went platinum in very little time following his album's debut. However, there are some chart main-stays which we couldn't have predicted when the album initially dropped-- such as Macklemore...

We encourage your opinions.  Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't...

  • 7 NBA Coaches Most Likely To Be Fired Soon
    4,686 Views
    The lifespan of a coach in today's NBA isn't very long, about 2.5 years to be exact. While there are a few powerhouses at the top who have certain futures and predetermined plans, the majority of NBA squads are simply treading water and hoping to land a franchise changing draft pick, or pull off a blockbuster trade. With that being the case, there is a good chance a bevy of head coaches this...
