Giants' slugger Barry Bonds told San Francisco's KGO Radio that he is receiving death threats before he renews his chase of Hank Aaron's career home run record. Bonds, who needs 22 homers to break Aaron's career record, simply wants to be careful about the alleged threats. "I'm mostly gun-shy of what can happen. Once this is all over and done, whether I get lucky enough to do it or not, I'll be able to release just a little bit of the anxiety and fear of what can happen.

You know how we know that the Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard is just starting to break the ceiling of NBA stardom? He's hanging out with porn stars. Specifically, amply bosomed former gubernatorial candidate Mary Carey, who tells the story of meeting Howard in a Luke Is Back, apparently a well-read porn blog....continue

LMAO @ ol' boy thinking his hoes was worth over $80,000! Why did Pac Man have a trash bag full of money again??
Haynes (Nelly) had tossed hundreds of $1 bills on the stripper stage, an action known in street slang as "making it rain," and Jones joined in. An announcer told all the dancers to go to the center stage, and about 40 strippers soon were on the stage. Mitchell told the strippers from his Houston club to pick up the money, which apparently was only supposed to be used for visual effect. One of the dancers than took the trash bag filled with Jones' money and a "melee broke out. Jones became irate about the loss of his money, and the fact that girls were in a frenzy, picking up the money at their feet," Review Journal

You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don't like it. It shouldn't be in the world or in the United States." ....When asked if he would accept an active player's coming out, such as that of retired NBA center John Amaechi, Hardaway replied: "First of all, I wouldn't want him on my team....."And second of all, if he was on my team, I would, you know, really distance myself from him because, uh, I don't think that's right. And you know I don't think he should be in the locker room while we're in the locker room. I wouldn't even be a part of that," he said.
**smh** Being black, I hate it when other black people say that they hate a certain kind of person. How can you say that "I hate gay people" when you don't know them all? Just like I can't understand a white person who "hates black people" when that's just impossible as far as I'm concerned. If you don't agree with homosexuality because of religious purposes, that's understandable. BUT to be homophobic is stupid , and I don't get it. I could at least admire his honesty, but (just like everybody who publically says dumb shit) he later apologized. What an ignorant man.

The Cavaliers’ LeBron James said he is unsure how he would react if he knew one of his teammates was gay, but the biggest issue for James is whether a teammate would keep his homosexuality a secret. “We’re like family and you take showers with each other,” James said Wednesday. “We’re on the bus together and we talk about a lot of things and if you’re not trustworthy, like admitting you’re gay, you can’t be trusted. It’s a trust factor.”
If a person doesn't admit he's gay he can't be trusted??? Hmmmm....I don't see how trust and sexuality are related.

Mike Tyson has checked himself into rehab for "various addictions." I don't know what those addictions are, but I'm sure that I wouldn't be surprised if those "addictions" were made public. He's at a "secret" rehab in Phoenix and will supposedly remain there until he has to go to court Feb . 26 for his little drug arrest in December. Everytime I hear something about Mike, I just get a quick (real quick) feeling of sadness. He's a living tradegy! Well good luck gettin that monkey off ya back Mike...

Bulls' Rookie Tyrus Thomas is one of four players participating in the All-Star dunk contest. When asked how he felt about his first ever dunk contest he responed: "I'm just going to go out there, get my check and call it a day." When asked how he felt about being around the game's greats, and etc. he replied: "I'm just into the free money. That's it. I'll just do whatever when I get out there." ....and now his ass will be fined $10K.
What was he thinking?? Was he having a bad day or something?? Was the jewelry store out of $200,000 chains? Did bird shit get on his shiny rims?? Why would you make those statements?? He's a ROOKIE who has the opportunity to showcase his "talent" and represent the legendary Chicago Bulls in front of none other than Micheal Jordan himself, and he's like "fuck that, where my check." What happened to humility and excitement?? I didn't think that players started feeling that way until AFTER they've been in the league for a few years. Well since he likes checks so much, he'll be writing one...for $10,000. Maybe his agent can (as my older folks say down here in the south) LEARN him how to shut the hell up.
Just ask Paul Pierce. Whatever it is, it's serious enough for him to be hospitalized for 24-48 hours. Pierce had swelling in his elbow and a low-grade fever. After an examination it was determined that he had infection in his elbow....I swear, you can get anything these days. He better stay away from the groupies, one of them hoes dun infected his elbow!!!! Now that's some shit.
....the 6-10 center who played at Penn State and a few seasons (five to be exact) in the NBA??? Well, he's written a book and in the book he "comes out" and announces his gayness making him the first NBA player to come out publicly. NO this is no big deal, and NO I won't be buying this book BUT I thought it was interesting that he's the FIRST player to come out. Surely there're waaaay more players (past and present) who are gay. SO why hasn't anybody else been outward with their sexuality? It doesn't really make a difference to me if my favorite player is gay. That doesn't take away from his stats or anything. I know he's disappointed the hell out of a few ladies because he's all tall and handsome!! As a heterosexual female, I want all homosexual males to be short and ugly.

I just may actually watch the Dunk Contest this year. How bout...Michael Jordan and Dr. J are gonna be two of the five judges on All-Star Saturday night!
Also judging will be Dominique Wilkins, Vince Carter, and umm...um...(what's his name??)...OH YEAH, Kobe Bryant. I don't think I've actually watched a dunk contest since the Vince Carter arm in the net days. That was the shit!!
You can lose $2.5 million in one night AND still be rich!!! Charles Barkley claims to have lost 2 1/2 mill in a six hour period while gambling last year. Chuck admits to having a gambling problem but doesn't plan on stopping or getting help for it. He doesn't always come up on the losing end....he won $700, 000 just over the weekend AND he even bet on the Colts in the Super Bowl and won an undisclosed amount of money for that. He says that he can afford it, he likes to gamble, and everybody can kiss his ass.
That's what's up b/c I remember losing about $200 in the casino one night and I was contemplating suicide.

Damn it!! I should've put money on this game because I made a fairly accurate prediction as far as the winner and score is concerned. But...I didn't so oh well. I'm happy that the Colts won (Yay!). HOWEVER, the best part of the game was Prince's performance. I loooove Prince and how appropriate was it that he sang Purple Rain in the....rain.

The NBA All-Star reserves were announced on last night and Carmelo Anthony was not selected!! Melo was hoping that his 15 game suspension and the whole New York fight situation wouldn't prevent him earning his first All-Star spot. HOWEVER, LaLa's baby daddy and the NBA leading scorer will probably have to wait until next year to have his All-Star virginity broken.
***There's a possibility that the Commissioner could add him due to a few players who may miss the All-Star game***
