Jarron Collins, brother of “out” basketball player Jason Collins, received a T-shirt gift on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday that reads, “I’m the straight one.”
“It’ll save me a lot of time,” Jarron cracked in a guest appearance with Jason.
Jarron apparently wore the shirt on the streets afterward and posed with at least a few passers-by.
The NBA’s Board of Governors voted on Wednesday to keep the Kings in Sacramento rather than allowing them to move to Seattle. Needless to say, a lot of reporters wanted to talk to the team’s co-owner, George Maloof, after the vote was announced. Kevin Fippin of the Kings blog Sactown Royalty, was on the scene and tweeted what happened next.
“Media just chased George Maloof into the Bell Stand closet!!! UNREAL!!”
“He is in a closet guys!!!”
“George opened the door for a second and closed when he saw this!”
In last nights close out game for the Miami Heat, Chris Bosh decided to put his face up a Bulls ass but he should probably just take the butcher’s word for it.
Someone forgot to tell Memphis Grizzlies Tony Allen that he is not allowed to throw a towel at an opposing team’s player while they are trying to shoot. He was awarded a technical foul for tossing a towel in front of Oklahoma City Thunder Derek Fisher as he was shooting a three pointer.
Craig Sager is really having a blast during these playoffs. Check out his incredible photobomb of Will Smith and his son Jaden.
People spend thousands upon thousands of dollars to get their shoe game tight. Designers such as Joost Goudriaan know this and wanted to thank his loyal customers with a gift and did so with chocolate.
Kobe Bryant decided to share a surgery picture of his right leg/heel on Instagram Tuesday. He had an operation last month to repair the Achilles tendon, which he tore against the Golden State Warriors on April 12.

A woman has filed a civil lawsuit in Los Angeles against recent Philadelphia 76er and now free agent Nick Young, claiming the guard met the woman at a bar, drugged and raped her two years ago, reports CBS 2 in Los Angeles.
The woman is seeking unspecified damages. This is not a criminal complaint against the Los Angeles native who played his college ball at USC and lives in his home town in the offseason.
According to the report, the woman says the two met at the Crown Bar in West Hollywood. The report, cititng the complaint, says that Young bought the woman and her friend a glass of champagne, and the next thing that she remembers she woke up at Young’s home naked and he said they were having intercourse until she passed out, then he stopped. The woman reports she went to the UCLA Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center, where tests found GHB, a known date rape drug, in her system.
If you recall Indiana Pacers big man Roy Hibbert was on his way to dinner in Manhattan when he saw a classy gal pooping between two vehicles. After the Pacers’ 93-82 win over the Knicks Tuesday night, Hibbert celebrated with some fine dining in downtown Indianapolis, and was greeted with this totally normal scene: a man walking his pet goat.
“I know we live in Indiana. But this should not be happening outside of a fine dinning restaurant. GOAT!!!!”
Where does Big Roy need to go to have a normal dining experience these days?
Unfortunately for New York Knicks owner James Dolan, shooting 35.6% from the field in a pivotal Game 4 loss to the Indiana Pacers is one nightmare he can’t wake up from.
Dwyane Wade certainly pushes the limits when it comes to his postseason fashion choices, and this was no different as he showed up to Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls wearing capris
This Memphis Grizzlies fan, captured at the team’s Monday playoff game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, deserves some kind of award. He takes full advantage of his bald dome, and seamlessly blends a basketball and a blue grizzly bear
Mark Cuban has always been one to think outside the box. On Monday, the billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner took to his blog to announce that he’s looking to redesign the Mavs’ uniforms for the 2015-16 season, and he wants to crowd-source a design from the public.
“Who will own your design ? The minute you post it, the Mavs will. If you think its horrible that the Mavs own your design. Do not post. If you think its cool that the Mavs could possibly use your design and you will have eternal bragging rights , then post away. If we really like your design and you , I may even throw in some tickets. If we don’t use your design, it will still be here on this site for now and ever more for you to glance longingly at. If your design is close , if not identical to other designs and we pick one of the other designs, for whatever reason, then thats just the way it goes.”
Spike Lee has a long and well-documented history against the Indiana Pacers.
The New York Knicks superfan has been tormenting the Pacers organization ever since the early 1990s when the two teams saw each other in the playoffs on multiple occasions. Every one of those meetings turned out to be epic, and despite sitting in the stands, Lee played a role in several of them.
Now, in 2013, the Pacers and Knicks find themselves locked in a heated playoff series yet again. And Lee wants to be courtside for each and every game, which presented a challenge for him Saturday night when the Knicks paid a visit to Conseco Fieldhouse.
So, the 56-year-old reportedly offered a Pacers fan $40,000 to part with four tickets behind the home team’s bench, but the ticket holder turned Lee down. The man who owned the seats was none other than Stewart Reed, a loyal Pacers fan, and co-owner of Fuzzy Zoeller’s Vodka.
For what it’s worth, Lee, wearing his Knicks’ No. 3 John Starks jersey, ended up seated on the floor across the court from the Knicks’ bench for the game.
For all those fans out there frustrated that Derrick Rose hasn’t returned from his ACL injury yet, The Office’s Craig Robinson knows and feels your pain.
After having a few drinks one night some guy on Reddit named Nemoran thought he could definitely hack it in the NBA. He wrote a letter declaring himself eligible for the upcoming draft. And guess what happens next. The NBA responds!
The Golden State Warriors beat the San Antonio Spurs on the road to tie up the NBA playoff series one game apiece. The city of San Francisco and the Bay Area are doing what they can to support their young team, and it starts at City Hall. Check out the overhaul in lights that San Francisco’s city hall has gotten for the Warriors’ playoff run.
Two opposing fans who most likely in the same family master the art of using San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan to photbomb.
Tensions ran high during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat, on the floor and in the stands.
After Bulls center Joakim Noah picked up his second technical foul of the night for arguing a call from the bench in the fourth quarter, a female fan at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami was photographed screaming at him as he left the court. She was also flashing her middle finger right in his face. Her male companion seemed nearly as angry, although he refrained from making any obscene gestures.
There are no words for these shoes. Just when we thought LeBron James rainbow MVP shoes couldn’t be topped, New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert broke these Adidas shoes out.
Lil Wayne is the biggest bandwaggon fan in sports. He also has a dislike for the Miami Heat that goes back to 2011 when he complained that LeBron James and Dwyane Wade ignored him at games. He even went off on Chris Bosh in February.
Apparently Lil Wayne’s dislike for the Heat is so strong he has joined the Chicago Bulls bandwaggon.
If you were watching the fourth quarter and overtimes of game one between the San Antonio Spurs-Golden State Warriors, you no doubt heard the screaming lady yelling every time the Spurs did something good on the court that she stole the focus of the game away from the players.
According to The Guardian, at least eight players in the English Premier League have revealed to their teammates that they are gay, but have refused to go public in fear of the backlash they may receive from fans and media.
Those eight players have reportedly gained considerable support from their teammates since coming out in the locker room.
The last British professional soccer player to reveal he was gay and still continue his career was Justin Fashanu in 1990. Fashanu played for four more years before tragically committing suicide at the age of 37. Fashanu cited “heavy damage” from the backlash he received for coming out as the primary cause.
More from The Guardian:
Chris Basiurski, chair of the Gay Football Supporters’ Network, said that, although progressive attitudes had begun to infiltrate the dressing room, the fear of how supporters would react remained a problem.
“The danger is not so much coming out, but what happens next,” he said. “One of the problems Justin Fashanu found was that he was the first black millionaire player, and a lot of things were expected of him on the pitch at Nottingham Forest and it didn’t really work out. When that happened, the dressing room and the management used his sexuality as a thing to bash him with.”
Basiurski said the organisation had heard reports of professional players whose sexuality was a secret guarded inside the game: “We have anecdotal evidence that players are out within their clubs and don’t have a problem. But we are trying to create an atmosphere for people to come out safely, but at the moment there is a big barrier. The fact is, we have never really tested the fans, both home or away, on this.
“The danger is what happens when a player comes out and gets loads of support and attention, but then start playing badly. The worry is that fans will start getting on their backs and they may lose the confidence of their manager and it could be connected to their sexuality.”
The news comes nearly one week after NBA veteran Jason Collins became the first player from a United States professional sports league to publicly reveal that he was gay.
