Keywords: iman shumpert, knicks, chase budinger, pacers, derrik williams, paul george, rockets, blake griffin

Rookie sensation Iman Shumpert will be participating in the upcoming NBA Dunk Contest during All Star Weekend. The cast features many players that the casual fan has probably never heard of. Paul George of the Pacers, Chase Budinger of the Rockets, and Derrik Williams of the Twovles round out the crew. This is one of the weakest dunk contest cast we have seen in years, Blake Griffin who won it last year has opted against defending his title. With very little effort being put into this, it may be about time the NBA nix the novelty act all together.




14-year old girl changes the tune of Seventeen and their photoshopping habits!

Keywords: seventeen magazine, making a difference, peace treaty

 

Your voice can make a difference. That’s what we have learned from 14-year-old Julia Bluhm, the brave teen who posted a petition on Change.org back in April, challenging Seventeen magazine to run non-photoshopped spreads that are relatable to real girls. After a petition of over 12,000 signatures, and a protest in front of the Hearst building (where Seventeen’s offices are), the magazine listened. Check out the “Body Peace Treaty” that Seventeen’s Editor in Chief, Ann Shoket published as part of her editor’s letter in the August issue. Julia’s next challenge? Teen Vogue. Her latest petition has already received more than 10,000 signatures and is growing by the minute!




Kendrick Perkins calls out Lebron as twitter war begins

Keywords: lebron james, twitter, kendrick perkins, blake griffin, dunk of the year, kobe

Following the massive dunk that Blake Griffin put upon Kendrick Perkins the twitter world went crazy. One of those tweeters happened to be Lebron James who said; ”Dunk of the Year! @blakegriffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!!! Wow! I guess I’m No. 2 now. Move over #6″

Perkins was less then amused by the Lebron response. He responded with this in an interview with Yahoo Sports:

“You don’t see Kobe Bryant tweeting, You don’t see Michael Jordan tweeting. If you’re an elite player, plays like that don’t excite you.

“At the end of the day, the guys who are playing for the right reasons who are trying to win championships are not worrying about one play. They also are not tweeting about themselves talking about going down to No. 2, I just feel Lebron is always looking for attention and he wants the world to like him.”

Now most people have not been fans of Lebron since his publicized decision to take his talents to south beach. Perkins took this opportunity to take his talents to the media and call out Lebron. Hey, Perkins is desperate to get people to stop talking about the domination Griffin thrust upon him with the dunk. Making people hate Lebron is always a good way to distract people.




Something is wrong with this picture, and I just can’t put my finger on it

I don’t mean to point out the obvious here, but, that wreath is COMPLETELY out of place on that sweater!   Whoever sewed this thing should have brought it over a couple inches to the left.   Hey guy, way to ruin the Christmas spirit at what appears to be a fun family holiday gathering.




Peyton Manning is now the proud part owner of the Grizzlies

Keywords: memphis grizzlies, peyton manning

 

Thanks to Peyton Manning, I now remember that the Grizzlies are still an NBA franchise. Yes, they have had some postseason success, but their relevance is still waining in a star driven league. But with Manning at the helm, along with Justin Timberlake and Penny Hardaway, this team finally has some buzz around em. It isn’t about what these guys can do as owners, it is what they bring to the table in marketability. Much like the Nets and Jay-Z, these superstars make the Grizzlies a hot commodity in the NBA among celebrities and fans alike. And it doesn’t hurt that Manning is a University of Tennessee alum.
