Kanye West showed up on set of ‘The Decision’ last summer to support LeBron James in his new situation with the Miami Heat, but it appears the rapper’s alliance has shifted.
West has been spotted before in a Mavericks’ hat, but he also wore it to a Louis Vuitton event in Italy where Dwyane Wade was also present. The two got together to take a picture, and in one way or another the hat came off.
Kanye is doing his best to cover the logo and keep a level-headed smile with D-Wade’s arm on his shoulder. We all know the Heat have egos, so I bet Wade was hit hard when he saw one of the most popular icons in entertainment donning the apparel of the team that defeated him. Woud have been interesting to have seen his first reaction.
After all of the comparisons to Michael Jordan, it was LeBron James’ Finals counterpart and enemy that attained a similar phrase to MJ.

Hill even looks like he pulled off the serious role in this one. Watch the ‘Moneyball’ trailer after the jump. View full article »

Listen below as he explains the book’s premise and we get into the current division races in baseball, and the exciting championship finals in the NBA and NHL. I don’t know what’s causing the echo towards the middle of the recording, hopefully I will have this fixed by the next episode.
The NFL lockout couldn’t have come at a better time for Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.
