New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony got into it with Boston Celtics reserve Jordan Crawford after Boston extended the series with a Game 5 victory Wednesday night, exchanging words after the buzzer. Twitter and the blogosphere blew up after video and GIFs of the incident appeared to show Crawford mouthing a profane insult to Anthony about his wife, La La.
Earlier this season, Anthony got into it with Kevin Garnett after the Celtics star reportedly told him his wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios”.
On Thursday, Anthony’s wife, La La, joined the battle on Twitter and took aim at Crawfor

It sometimes just takes a pair of fresh eyes to really get to the bottom of things, even if those eyes belong to a 7-year-old. That seems to be the case with a young boy who write about four NBA teams, and was quite accurate in doing so.
When Jay-Z sits courtside at Brooklyn Nets games, he is only a few feet away from Popeye Jones. Now comes word that the two could get closer. Seth Jones, Popeye’s hockey-playing son, is the latest high-profile athlete that Jay-Z would like to sign for Roc Nation Sports.
Seth is certainly a top prize. He is enormously athletic and skilled and is likely the overall #1 pick in the NHL Draft on June 30 at the Prudential Center in Newark. He could also become hockey’s first African-American “crossover star” and with some careful marketing and promotion lead to a new audience for the sport. As one writer noted, the combination could make hockey “cool” again after its season was devastated by a long lockout.
All three of Jones sons took up hockey when he was playing for the Nuggets and the family lived in the Denver suburbs.
“All of the kids played street hockey. When it got cold, all the kids said they were going inside to play ice hockey,” the dad said. “Just being a sports guy, growing up playing basketball, football and baseball, it didn’t matter what sport they played. Sports are meant to be fun. Kids learn camaraderie and teamwork and stuff like that.”
It helped that the Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche shared a weight room, and the elder Jones received advice from Avalanche captain Joe Sakic. Seth quickly became a standout. This season, he led the United States to the World Junior Championship in Russia was officially named the No. 1 North American prospect for the National Hockey League
Jay-Z has already signed Robinson Cano and has been linked to Victor Cruz, Nerlens Noel and now Jones.
Following the Boston Celtics 92-86 victory over the New York Knicks in Game 5, the two teams had a slight altercation. Boston guard Jordan Crawford said something to Carmelo Anthony and had to be pulled away by his teammates as members of both teams crowded around
In a move that should definitely work, CBS Chicago is launching a campaign encouraging fans to write “open letters” to injured Bulls star Derrick Rose asking him to return for the playoffs. Here’s the pitch:

The Los Angeles Lakers season has come to a close in disappointing fashion, and it appears that Metta World Peace’s son is reacting accordingly. World Peace posted a photo of a collection of stuff that he claimed his son is selling because he wants to buy a pair of $8,500 sneakers.
“My son is trying to sell all this for a pair of shoes! $8,500″ World Peace wrote along with the photo you see above. “I told him to get a job. This kid is nuts!”
Included are some basics that a kid who is looking to make a buck would try to sell a keyboard, a guitar, some shoes. Oh yeah, and it also appears his Dwight Howard jersey has been thrown into the mix.
Stephen Curry confronted a fan following the Golden State Warriors 107-100 loss to the Denver Nuggets. Curry had a poor shooting night going 7-for-19 and 1-of-7 on threes, giving him 15 points in the loss.
Days after Jason Collins came out as the first openly gay professional athlete in a major sport, talking heads have been quick to debate the significance of the action. In the real world, however, fans have been eager to let their money do the talking for them.
The Washington Post’s reports sales of Collins Washington Wizards jerseys have dominated the franchise’s “personalized” section in its online store. Every single personalized jersey sold at the Wizard’s store Monday was reportedly a “Collins 98″ garment.
Collins’ number, 98, is no accident, a fact that’s only recently come to light. In a Sports Illustrated article published Monday, the athlete reveals he selected the jersey number as a secret and “small gesture of solidarity” with the gay community. With his choice, Collins subtly honors Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old Wyoming college student who was kidnapped, brutally beaten and left for dead in 1998.
“When I put on my jersey,” Collins writes, “I was making a statement to myself, my family and my friends.”
A YouTube user has done an incredible job in taking a Kevin Durant Gatorade commercial and remixing it to feature Carlos Delfino putting KD on a poster as he did in Game 4.
What is the criteria of judging an alley oop. I mean what’s more important, the pass or the finish? What do you think?
Russell Westbrook is known for his outrageous pre- and post-game fashion choices. In an apparent show of solidarity with their injured teammate, Oklahoma City Thunder players Kevin Durant and Hasheem Thabeet have chosen some memorable shirts to wear against the Houston Rockets.
A blogger for CBS Houston has been skewered by disgruntled readers this week after asking if an NBA cheerleader is “too chunky” to wear skimpy clothing.
In the NBA playoff series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets, blogger Claire Crawford commented on the appearance of Thunder cheerleader Kelsey Williams. Crawford wrote that the cheerleader is a “pretty blonde” but claimed that the young woman’s “pudginess” was being criticized “by some folks in OKC.”
“[If] she’s comfortable wearing that tiny outfit and dancing for NBA fans, then good for her,” Crawford wrote. “Besides…not every man likes women to be toothpick skinny. I’d say most men prefer a little extra meat on her bones. Am I right?”
However, despite this concession, a poll attached to Crawford’s blog post encouraged readers to judge Williams’ figure. Backlash to Crawford’s post was swift, with many readers expressing outrage at the blogger’s comments.
Russell Westbrook is nearly as well-known for his explosive fashion choices as he is for his explosive play on the basketball court. Following the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 105-102 victory over the Houston Rockets he broke out the Matrix-vintage black vinyl.

On the same day LeBron James sent out save the date card for his September wedding went public, Michael Jordan applied for a marriage license at the downtown courthouse in West Palm Beach, Fla., the Associated Press reported.
In an odd coincidence, MJ and LeBron got engaged within days of each other. LeBron proposed to his girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, just after midnight on New Year’s 2012. Jordan’s publicist announced his engagement to his girlfriend of three years, Cuban model Yvette Prieto, just three days before.
According to TMZ, Jordan and Prieto will get married on April 27. That fits within the 60-day window they’ll have after their marriage license is granted.
It will be the second marriage for Jordan, 50.
Los Angeles Clippers Jamal Crawford decided to have some fun as his team began to pull away from the Milwaukee Bucks late in the fourth quarter and went between his legs and then threw up a pass for a trailing Blake Griffin, who threw down an alley-oop.
If Rudy Gay hasn’t sold his house in Memphis, Tennessee yet he should try and hire Harold Haskin and Brian Lurie to do the job. But is that how in tuned Grizzlies fans are, that they still support a player who hasn’t been with their team since 2008?
Dennis Rodman is back from his visit to North Korea where he made a friend for life in Kim Jong Un. And if you thought that you had heard the last of Rodman and his love of the North Korean leader, well you were mistaken.
Rodman decided to visit the hotel bar at the Time Hotel on Sunday where he had more than a couple of drinks and spent his whole time telling anyone who would listen that Kim Jong Un was a nice guy.
The problem for Rodman was that no one wanted to hear about Kim Jong Un. And that eventually led to Rodman reportedly being escorted out of both the hotel and the hotel bar.
He was at the bar at Serafina for four hours,” says a witness. “He kept saying what a nice guy Kim is, and how Kim just wants to talk to President Obama about basketball. He was waving around a signed copy of the dictator’s huge manifesto, telling everyone they should read it.”
Added the witness, “Dennis was making a total jerk of himself. He wouldn’t stop about Kim Jong Un, and he wouldn’t let anyone talk to him about shutting up, or what an oppressive country North Korea is. Eventually he was escorted out by the bartender.”
