Apology in 5,4,3..He post fight comments received more press than his actual fight. Hit the jump to see the infamous comments that Broner suspended.

via Bleacher Report

A bit unsurprisingly, Adrien Broner‘s poor choice of words have earned him a suspension from the World Boxing Council.

The WBC announced its decision on Wednesday, a little less than a week after “The Problem” made racially insensitive comments following his victory over Carlos Molina:

Michael Jordan Slams Donald Sterling

Screen Shot 2014-04-28 at 11.54.28 AM

After being pretty much a nonexistent voice concerning issues in Black America, Michael Jordan finally comes out and makes a bold statement against Donald Sterling.

via USA TODAY

“I look at this from two perspectives – as a current owner and a former player. As an owner, I’m obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views. I’m confident that Adam Silver will make a full investigation and take appropriate action quickly. As a former player, I’m completely outraged. There is no room in the NBA – or anywhere else – for the kind of racism and hatred that Mr. Sterling allegedly expressed…. In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot and must not tolerate discrimination at any level.”

[video] Stephen A. Smith Speaks on DeSean Jackson Getting Dropped Over Gang Ties

Screen Shot 2014-03-29 at 1.04.06 PM

Bravo. I definitely agree with Stephen A. but Desean Jackson must also look at his actions and see how they are effecting his career on and off the field. There has been a multitude of times where he has thrown up the Rollin’ 60’s gang sign in music videos, on the field, and out partying. This is the NFL and whether we like it or not this type of behavior whether it is harmless or not, can cost you your job and millions of dollars.

[video] adidas Training & RGIII | “Blow Up” — All In For Week 1

Dope commercial from one of the young stars of the NFL, Washington Redskins quarterback RGIII.  From reading the comments read on youtube, numerous people have indicated the Dark Knight heavily influences this commercial with which I wholeheartedly agree. Robert has kinda walked back in recent tweets that he will not sacrifice his career on a whole just to be ready for week one of next season after tearing his acl in the playoffs. I say he was just he was downplaying expectations but that he has internally made this his ultimate goal.

Kobe Bryant set to play in ITALY during NBA lockout

This should not sound strange at all. He actually grew up there and I believe speaks fluent Italian.

via SI.com

Kobe should be in Bologna by Wednesday or Thursday with his visa in hand for medical visits and then we can deposit the contract with the league,” Sabatini said. “I want to make clear that right now there are still no signatures. We’ve got to write the contract, which will then be read over and over again.”

Mike Vick gets $100 Million, 6 Year Deal with Philly

So happy for this guy and he has fought adversity and his own stupid mistakes to rise again. Don’t f*ck this up Mike!

The National Football Post’s Andrew Brandt is reporting that Vick and the Eagles have agreed to a six-year, $100 million contract, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter writes that the deal includes about $40 million of guaranteed money.

His deal, if you look at it from an average salary per year aspect, is less than Manning (five years, $90 million, $54.5 million guaranteed), but it’s comparable to Brady (five years, $78.5 million, $48.5 million guaranteed).* At the very least, it’s in that same stratosphere.

Fomer NBA’er arrested on charges of murdering mother of four

between this. the lockout and Basketball Wives LA, David Stern has to be livid at how the game is being portrayed in the media. Anyway this is a disturbing case.

via Huff Post

Police in Atlanta had obtained a murder warrant for Crittenton in the Aug. 19 shooting of 22-year-old Jullian Jones, a mother of four young children, as she was walking with two men. Police believe one of the men with her was the target.

Serena Williams deletes sexy Twitter background after online backlash

You guys know I love me some Serena, but I do think this pic was a bit too sexy for a Twitter background. She made a mistake people get off her back and the stalker dude was bugging out way before this so to try and connect this is stupid. Check out some criticism below:

via Daily Mail

‘It’s a sexy photo, she looks great and it’s not pornographic. To be honest, I would actually find it to be somewhat artistic if it weren’t for the serious business of stalking women,’ Greg Couch of The Sporting News wrote.
‘What was her message anyway? What was she trying to say? Just this: Look at me. Instead, what she was saying was this: Peep at me, but don’t stalk me. Huh?
‘Someone must have gotten to her and suggested something about common sense and hypocrisy.’

The tennis star was forced to remove a half-naked picture of herself hours after she used it as her avatar Twitter, amid online outcry.

Everything You Know About Fitness is a Lie by Daniel Duane

Well it is the beginning of the year where people rush out and get gym memberships in a quest to fulfill their New Year resolutions to be fit. Having started last July, I understand the daunting task of getting into a regular workout program and actually staying on it. It is not an easy thing to do and takes focus and effort in order to achieve significant results.

The one thing the masses of people in your local gym don’t do is come with a plan. They usually just show up and use the “shiny” machines and began to misuse worthless equipment and convince themselves they are working out. For those of you who are determined to get in shape and want some education on Fitness, I beg you to read this article “Everything You Know About Fitness is a Lie” which is no less than incredible, because it gives you the ins and outs of working out and exposes the gyms as not really wanting you to get fit at all. Props to Daniel Duane for such and in depth article:

via Mens Journal

I hate the gym. At least, I hate “the gym” as imagined by the modern American health club: the mindless repetitions on the weight machines, halfhearted crunches, daytime TV during the treadmill. Such a sad, unimaginative excuse for a life, when I could be out rock-climbing, surfing, or, hell, even just scrubbing the bathroom floor. But I love working out the way I’ve come to understand it, and two big discoveries made all the difference.

First, I realized that we all live in a kind of Fitness Fog, a miasma of lies and misinformation that we mistake for common sense, and that makes most of our gym time a complete waste. Second, and by far the bigger news, I finally figured out what gyms good for and exactly how a man can use them to make himself healthy and fit in the truest sense: strong, capable, and durable in the long-lasting way that doesn’t just ward off chronic disease but actually lets a 35-year-old desk drone carry both of his laughing children up a mountain, simultaneously, and take on serious skiing at age 40, trusting his knees to bend deep and firm.

Muscle withers away if you’re not constantly building it, and muscle withers faster as a man ages. Fading muscle mass gives way to fat gain, stiff joints, stumbling-old-man balance, and a serious drop-off in weekend fun, not to mention self-esteem. But if you fight back right, it can all go the other way. And this means getting strong. The bottom line is that not only can lifting weights do as much for your heart health as cardio workouts, but it also provides you with a lean-muscle coat of armor against life’s inevitable blows — the way it did for my own father, who broke his back in a climbing accident at age 69, spent months in bed, and recovered strong only because he’d been lifting for 35 years.
