Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders is still recovering from the broken finger he sustained in a nightclub brawl at Milwaukee nightspot ‘Apartment 720′ last month.
Surveillance footage has now emerged of the altercation, however #BTHype’s investigative team was able to obtain never before seen footage with full sound from the nightclub that night.

I’ve always been a big fan of the Miami Heat’s intro videos. Over the last few years, they’ve had some great videos. Notably:
2012/13′s “Seven Nation Army” video was quite cool too. A nice shoot & had all the players in a box, working out, practicing their game, pulling faces. The intimidation factor for it, is high. Just what you want to see from an intro video.
This seasons one, seems like it has been inspired from the 2012/13 video. Once again “Seven Nation Army” has returned. Plus, this year, instead of having a few shots of players working out with their shirts off… This year, we have the entire roster… shirts-off, pumping their guns, working out, in a room that’s on fire.
This season’s intro video could go down as one of the most awkwardly erotic NBA intro videos of all-time.

I don’t really know where they were coming from with this, I actually don’t think i’ve laughed as hard at something that was meant to be so serious since Sarah Palin was running for Vice President in 2008.
Although, the video did kind of remind me of the music video for the 1981 Olivia Newton-John classic hit ‘Let’s Get Physical‘… So, naturally, we made a version of it to ‘Physical’.
I think that the video now makes a bit more sense… Check it out!

Breaking up is hard to do… Especially when your favourite team ‘breaks up’ with their All-Star & franchise guy. This is exactly what happened yesterday when the Philadelphia 76ers traded 2013 NBA All Star Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans for the 6th Pick Nerlens Noel, a 2014 Protected 1st Round Draft Pick & the 42nd Pick, Pierre Jackson.
In light of this, #believethehype’s own Benyam Kidane, a noted 76ers fan, delivered a moving eulogy after hearing the news that General Manager Sam Hinkie was going to blow up the team by trading Holiday, parting ways with the most loved guy in the ‘City of brotherly love’ & essentially killing any (be-it, small) chance the team had to be relevant next season.

Better late than never! Found a few interviews that #believethehype did with Jimmer Fredette, Vince Carter & James Johnson from February’s #TexasTour… Unfortunately, due to the busy week we had in Dallas, San Antonio & Houston, the videos were on the cutting room floor until now… However, the audio from Fredette & Carter did appear in the #TexasTour Day 1 Podcast.
Interviews took place on the 13th February after the Sacramento @ Dallas game in which the Mavs won 123-100 in a special night in the career of Vince Carter who scored 26 points to pass Larry Bird on the NBA’s career scoring list.
Benyam & I spoke to Fredette, Carter & Johnson about the game, VC surpassing ‘Larry Legend’, what they were planning on doing for the All Star Break, Valentines Day & more!

At Media Day during NBA All Star Weekend, along with asking the serious questions that the players had been asked about 500 times each, we thought we’d delve into some of the more ‘serious’ & ‘burning questions’ that our listeners want to find out…
- After Russell Westbrook was caught singing Ke$ha on national TV a couple of weeks ago, what female artist would you be caught singing?
- Jay-Z or Kanye West?
- Mighty Ducks or Cool Runnings?
Plus, excitingly, we finally put to bed the epic battle that has raged over the last year on the podcast with the MDvCR debate…
**NOTE: apologies on the editing error during Zach Randolph (you’ll know what I mean)**
