LATEST NIKE SHOE CONSPIRACY THEORY

September 15, 2010

Team USA just won the FIBA World Championship in basketball with two rookie guards, Tyreke Evans and Stephen Curry, on the team. Ever wonder why fellow rookie star Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks wasn’t selected to the squad? According to Jennings, it must be the shoes.

Jennings told Yahoo! Sports he wasn’t chosen for Team USA simply because he doesn’t endorse Nikes. Jennings has a shoe contract with Under Armour. By the way, both Evans and Curry have endorsement deals with Nike.

There have been other Nike shoe conspiracy theories in the past.

BUCKS BRANDON JENNINGS BECOMES YOUNGEST PLAYER TO EVER SCORE 50

Milwaukee Bucks rookie guard Brandon Jennings broke a record held by LeBron James Saturday night as he scored 55 points in a win over the Golden State Warriors. The double nickel makes Jennings the youngest NBA player in history to score 50 points in one game. The previous record had been held by James.

James is just the third player in Bucks history to score 50 points joining Michael Redd (57) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (51.) It was also the most points scored by a rookie in over 40 years-since Earl Monroe scored 56 in 1968.

IS ANDREW BOGUT THE BIGGEST DICK IN THE NBA?

October 27, 2009

ANDREW BOGUT

You can now add “liar” to “hypocrite” as character traits officially possessed by Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut. Remember last year when Bogut decried the “materialism” of NBA players? Yeah, about that…

The New York Times yesterday spotted Bogut driving his Ferrari.

Just to refresh your memory, here’s what Bogut told a newspaper from his native Australia, the Sydney Morning Herald:

“The public’s image of NBA players is true. A lot of them get caught up in the hype and do video clips with rappers and all that crap. They want bling bling all over themselves and drive fast cars. But that’s just the way the culture is in America – if you’ve got it flaunt it and if you don’t, you can’t.”


Several NBA players took offense to those comments. Washington Wizards center/poet Etan Thomas even wrote a rebuttal piece. Bogut’s comments might even appear to be a bit racist except for the fact that he criticized ALL Americans. His social commentary may have carried a little more weight, except for the Ferrari.

Following a barrage of “hypocrite” accusations in the media, Bogut denied that he owns a Ferrari on his Twitter account. He’s lying. At the start of training camp, the Milwaukee paper did a feature on the various cars that Bucks players drive. Bogut’s Ferrari was prominently mentioned.

COACH BANS NBA PLAYER FROM TWEETING

Milwaukee Bucks coach Scott Skiles has banned forward Charlie Villanueva from making any more posts via Twitter during his team’s basketball games. Skiles was furious that Villanueva was “tweeting” during a recent Bucks/Celtics game.

At halftime of Sunday’s game against Boston Villanueva wrote on his Twitter account:

 

“In da locker room, snuck to post my twitt. We’re playing the Celtics, tie ball game at da half. Coach wants more toughness. I gotta step up.”
