Barack Obama was recently injured playing pickup basketball at the white house, getting elbowed in the mouth and receiving twelve stitches as a result.
Taiwanese news team Next Media Animation relays the news in animated form, which has led to worldwide fame. They broke onto the sports scene after their Tiger Woods incident video, and have since produced videos related to Brett Favre, Tony Parker-Eva Longoria and now the president of the free world himself.
The news report seems like an accurate representation. Maybe Obama’s secret service should include a basketball coach from now on, who could tell him it’s not practical to try and guard his opponent outside the arc in a pickup game.
I don’t know if you could call it a downfall since they were never on top, but Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban apparently told LeBron James and Maverick Carter during the summer that the Heat would struggle to succeed.
Before the Heat faced Cuban’s Mavs on Saturday night, LeBron revealed the billionaire entrepreneur to be a “very sly guy.” Cuban apparently texted James during the summer to warn him about a potential talent-taking to South Beach.
Cuban also confirmed this.
“When he was making his decision, what I told him, and I told Maverick, was that no team had ever blown up a team of all their core, then added a couple of free agents and won. It’s always taken someone to come into a good team to make it better and put them over the top. That’s what I told him.”
The Mavericks beat the Heat to drop their record to 9-8, and no doubt leaving a subtle smirk on the face of Mark Cuban.
Adidas launched a viral campaign featuring actor Ken Jeong, Dwight Howard and Derrick Rose entitled ‘Fast Don’t Lie.’
The marketing scheme was designed to sell Rose’s new shoes, but thanks to the auto-tuning Gregory Brothers it has been transformed into a catchy tune as well.
The Gregory Brothers are the same people behind ‘Bed Intruder’ and ‘Double Rainbow,’ and have a webs series on YouTube called Songify This. They gave Slim Chin and the series a tuneup to create a legitimate song.
Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller made headlines during the winter Olympics this year after leading Team USA with a couple of spectacular performances.
He has also seen the ultimate guy film Caddyshack close to 100 times, according to the Vezina trophy winner himself. Apparently that’s at least one too many times submerged in the classic 1980 film to take on the role of Carl Spackler, originally played by Bill Murray.
ESPN made him film-ready and set him up with all he needed, a golf club and some flowers.
