Russell Wilson and Ciara are the entertainment industry’s hottest new couple and continue to prove the doubters wrong. The couple attended an event when Wilson impromptu called for Ciara to run a route while he passed the football to her. Ciara caught the ball like a champ and the crowd went crazy. They’re such a cute couple.

Twitter Reacts to Meek Mill Replying to Joe Budden’s Nicki Minaj Joke http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/twitter-reacts-to-meek-mill-replying-to-joe-buddens-nicki-minaj-joke/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/twitter-reacts-to-meek-mill-replying-to-joe-buddens-nicki-minaj-joke/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 06:12:32 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=330015 Joe Budden Meek Mill

It’s not everyday that you can pinpoint exactly where a rap beef began but thanks to a podcast and Twitter we can trace the exact moment Joe Budden and Meek Mill began going at each other.

This all began when Joe spoke on Meek & Nicki Minaj’s relationship on his podcast, “I’ll Name This Podcast Later,” and Meek obviously wasn’t a fan of this statement.

Part of my problem with that is that Meek’s music is too hard. Meek’s music is too hard for me to look at him with this f*cking sappy f*ck sh*t. Be the hardcore guy that I’m sure she was attracted to at some point. It’s nasty. I hate everything about it. I’m glad a dark-skinned guy is behaving this way. Light-skinned n*ggas, we’re not moving like that…

Light-skinned guys, we’re used to getting the bad b*tch. He’s like this b*tch just stepped off a f*cking Mars and is the only girl. Oh my God, I just hate it all. But I do appreciate them both keeping the hope of love alive.

This statement was part of a much larger conversation and in context didn’t seem to be a jab at Meek at all but like many other things, perception is what matters. When read in print Joe’s sarcastic and dry sense of humor doesn’t come across which leads to people adding a different narrative to the comments.

Joe’s podcast co-host were quick to lend their opinions of his comments.

Other’s couldn’t make out the difference between Joe BUDDEN and Joe BIDEN:

Meek had no time to care about the context of the comments, he just released an album, and he went with the general public’s perception of the statement. That led to a pretty long Twitter rant.

Either Mark Cuban is trying to convince himself or he really believes he knows more about DeAndre Jordan than everyone else does.

People see Jordan as a defender, high percentage shooter (not free throws) and someone who dunks on people.

Not the second coming of Wilt Chamberlain, but Cuban is handing him the keys to the franchise.

Cuban said that Jordan was “like the eighth option” on the Clippers, and he could be the first option on the Mavericks because superstar 37-year-old Dirk Nowitzki was no longer interested in that role.

Dirk could be 67 and would be a better offensive option in my opinion, but it is up to DeAndre Jordan to prove us wrong and Cuban right.

Report: Cavs Interested in Rodney Stuckey http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/report-cavs-interested-in-rodney-stuckey/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/report-cavs-interested-in-rodney-stuckey/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:48:58 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=330020 Rodney Stuckey

The Cavs have been linked to a few point guards during free agency and another one has made the list. Free agent guard Rodney Stuckey has made the list after playing only one season with the Indiana Pacers.

I’m sure the Cavs are looking to get the biggest bang for their buck with a large portion of their money tied down to players like LeBron, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. For the right price Stuckey could be a nice pickup.

Mark Cuban Thinks DeAndre Jordan Has Shaq-Like Potential http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/mark-cuban-thinks-deandre-jordan-has-shaq-like-potential/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/mark-cuban-thinks-deandre-jordan-has-shaq-like-potential/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:46:04 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=330017 Mark Cuban says he likes Dwyane Wade now.

Mark Cuban has to stop drinking before he gives interviews.

No knock on DeAndre Jordan, but Shaq is one of the top 5 centers of all-time. So, if that is what Cuban is expecting from Jordan, he is going to be sorely disappointed.

“We see him as “Shaq-like” but never having been given the opportunity,” Cuban told the radio show. “We told him if he came to the Mavs, he would be a focal point. He would grow into being a franchise player.”

We will see how all that works out, if Jordan can be 70% of what Shaq was, the deal was worth doing.

Clippers Looking to Get Rid of Jamal Crawford http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/clippers-looking-to-get-rid-of-jamal-crawford/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/clippers-looking-to-get-rid-of-jamal-crawford/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:07:54 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=329830 Crawford and doc rivers

The Los Angeles Clippers suffered a major blow when DeAndre Jordan turned down their offer and decided to sign with the Dallas Mavericks. Jordan wasn’t a big part of the Clippers offense but his defense, rebounding ability and physical presence on the court was unmatched. Just hours after losing Jordan, coach Doc Rivers and the Clippers are going with ‘Plan B’ which includes using guard Jamal Crawford as trade bait.

The Clippers also lost center Spencer Hawes who was traded away and now they find themselves without a big man. Crawford is an elite scorer in the NBA and several teams could use his services. If I’m the Cleveland Cavaliers I’m getting on the phone right away to gauge the Clippers interest in one of their bigs. Timofey Mozgov played a major role for the team after they acquired him in a trade when Anderson Varejao went down with a season ending injury. They recently re-signed Kevin Love to a 5-year deal and with Tristan Thompson’s long deal expected to follow, Mozgov, Varejao or maybe even Brendon Haywood could spark the interest of the Clippers who will soon be in desperation mode.

Matt Barnes On Why Fans Should Blame Lakers Management Not Kobe http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/matt-barnes-on-why-fans-should-blame-lakers-management-not-kobe/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/matt-barnes-on-why-fans-should-blame-lakers-management-not-kobe/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 04:38:50 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=330001 Matt Barnes Kobe

Kobe probably isn’t the reason free agents aren’t coming to Lakers. If the Lakers were a better overall team players would come.

But, the fact Lakers aren’t good and Kobe is still there, free agents are just going elsewhere. It is more of Kobe’s presence on a bad team than Kobe himself.

Something Matt Barnes confirms in this quote to SI.

​​“The reason people don’t want to go to the Lakers is because of management,” Barnes tells SI.com. “Kobe can be the scapegoat all they want but if you play hard, Kobe likes you. And if you bulls— around, he doesn’t. It’s plain and simple. He’s not a vocal leader. He just expects you to play as hard as you can every minute on the court, like he does.”

Matt Barnes played with Kobe when he still in his prime and the Lakers were at least competitive, the same can’t be said today.

Cops Are Still Dismissing Southern Church Fires As Natural Causes http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/cops-are-still-dismissing-southern-church-fires-as-natural-causes/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/cops-are-still-dismissing-southern-church-fires-as-natural-causes/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 04:00:41 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=329982 mt zion ame 1

Mount Zion AME church in Greeleyville, SC was yet another of numerous african american church in a southern state that was recently set on fire. Police are saying that after investigating the scene lightening was the cause of this fire. But a burnt door doesn’t provide enough evidence to confirm that conclusion. Now coincidence or not? This same church was set on fire by the Ku Klux Klan 20 years ago, and is also not far from the church in Charleston where 9 african americans were shot and killed in last month.

mt zion ame

The investigation is said to still be ongoing even though police are not giving much insight other than attempting to put it aside as a natural cause and nothing more. But one thing is for certain and that is that we need an answer to the big question swirling around lately asking #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches ?

Phoenix Mayor Trying To Woo Aldridge With Hashtags http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/phoenix-mayor-trying-to-woo-aldridge-with-hashtags/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/phoenix-mayor-trying-to-woo-aldridge-with-hashtags/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 03:35:29 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=329985 Aldridge, luckLooks like Phoenix is working overtime to persuade Aldridge to make the decision in choosing to join their team. Aldridge seems to be the hot free agent this summer. He has been receiving multiple offers from countless teams and it looks like one team even got the Mayor on board.

Once the Mayor starts campaigning, its pretty serious. Aldridge has yet to make a decision despite multiple reports, but we definitely know he’s enjoying those free meals.

Isaiah Thomas Trolls Kings Signing Of Rondo http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/isaiah-thomas-trolls-kings-signing-of-rondo/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/isaiah-thomas-trolls-kings-signing-of-rondo/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 03:08:49 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=329975 Isaiah Thomas throws sick dime

The Sacramento Kings go through point guards, like sprint cup teams run through tires. Darren Collison was the Kings starting point guard before the deal for Rajon Rondo.

Aaron Bruski was breaking down the emotions Collison must be feeling over the arrival of the four-time all-star.

Bruski received several retweets, including one from a discard Kings point guard.

Sacramento parted ways with Isaiah Thomas last offseason, and replaced him with the duo of Darren Collison and Ramon Sessions.

Harris played in 68 games for the Magic last season, averaging 17.1 points on 47 percent shooting (36 percent from three-point range) and 6.3 rebounds per game.

Aaron Hernandez Has a Glimmer of Hope in His Murder Appeal http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/judge-allows-investigation-of-anon-tip-in-hernandez-case/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/judge-allows-investigation-of-anon-tip-in-hernandez-case/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 02:18:33 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=329961 Aaron Hernandez Guilty

Looks like Aaron Hernandez and his team have caught a small break; Judge Garsh has agreed to allow the investigation of the alleged misconduct of a juror.

Judge Garsh has authorized Hernandez’s lawyers to subpoena Verizon for phone records that would reveal the identity of the person who provided an anonymous tip to defense lawyer James Sultan regarding the alleged juror misconduct.

The tipster told Sultan that the juror in question was present for discussions regarding the separate double-murder case pending against Hernandez, arising from an unrelated shooting in Boston nearly a year before Lloyd was killed. Evidence regarding the other case was barred from the trial regarding Lloyd’s murder.

“Whether the defendant can make a colorable showing sufficient to warrant a post-verdict interview of the juror may well depend on specific details yet to be proffered by the caller and the caller’s credibility, all of which cannot be determined as long as the caller remains anonymous,” Garsh said in the written ruling, via the Courant.

The Judge is allowing the Hernandez team and police to see if this tip and caller is credible. When calling into a murder investigation, I’m not sure how confident that person was thinking they would remain anonymous especially in a murder investigation. Looks like this Hernandez trial is far from over.

NCAA Investigating Ole Miss After Tunsil Agent Allegations http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/ncaa-investigating-ole-miss-after-tunsil-agent-allegations/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/ncaa-investigating-ole-miss-after-tunsil-agent-allegations/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 00:02:51 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=329947 laremy-tunsil-agents

Following Laremy Tunsil’s stepfather’s allegations that he was meeting with agents the night of their recent family brawl, the NCAA has decided to investigate Ole Miss.

Here are some details from the Clarion-Ledger:

NCAA officials were here Friday and interviewed the stepfather of Ole Miss tackle Laremy Tunsil about allegations of multiple rules violations by the University of Mississippi football program.

The trip made by NCAA officials comes one week after Tunsil was arrested and charged with domestic assault against his stepfather, Lindsey Miller. According to an arrest report by the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Office obtained by The Clarion-Ledger this week, Miller claimed the fight was a result of his warning to Tunsil about having contact with player agents.

Miller confirmed to The Clarion-Ledger Friday that he met with NCAA director of enforcement for football Chris Howard for what he estimated was three hours.

Calls to Howard’s cell phone were not immediately returned.

An Ole Miss spokesperson told The Clarion-Ledger that the school has not had contact with the NCAA and was unaware of any representatives being in the area.

Miller declined to comment further on his meeting with Howard and one other unnamed NCAA official, saying he agreed that their talks would remain confidential.

But on Thursday, Miller alleged to The Clarion-Ledger that in addition to the contact made by agents he is aware of violations that occurred during Tunsil’s recruitment as well, including claims of falsified academic records and gifts made by the university.

Miller also alleges that the agents have provided Tunsil with other benefits outside of transportation, including gifts of cash, clothes, help with car insurance payments and more.

I think it is interesting that the stepfather decided to snitch on Tunsil given the circumstances. He is definitely salty about the whole fight situation, and he went right after Tunsil and his eligibility by snitching.

It will be interesting to see if the NCAA comes up with anything after their investigation.

Report: WBO to Strip Mayweather of Title on Monday http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/report-wbo-to-strip-mayweather-of-title-on-monday/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2015/07/report-wbo-to-strip-mayweather-of-title-on-monday/#comments Fri, 03 Jul 2015 23:38:20 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=329932 Mayweather WBO Belt

Floyd Mayweather has more boxing titles than he knows what to do with but the WBO (World Boxing Organization) feels as though stripping him of their title will hit him where it hurts.

It is being reported that Mayweather will be stripped of the 147 lb title on Monday for not complying with WBO rules.

image

The WBO expected Mayweather to vacate his titles in the 154lb division in order to receive their title. Mayweather claims to have never received his WBC belt after his win over Manny Pacquiao, so his trophy case may be void of two belts soon.

This move won’t affect who Floyd fights in September so it’s all for nothing. Floyd should be focusing on his next opponent and not which title Bieber will carry to the ring.

The Rockets are having a decent day after they were able to resign Patrick Beverley and Corey Brewer, and they are hopeful that the latter signing will aide them n their pursuit of LaMarcus Aldridge.

While the Rockets are still holding out hope on Aldridge, I think his most likely destination within the state of Texas is San Antonio. It just makes too much sense in my opinion.
