High school senior Nicole Muxo reached out to Dwyane Wade with this youtube video asking him to come to her prom as her prom date and after no response Wade arrived at the prom on the night to surprise her.
She already had a date organised,who claims he was cool with D-Wade coming, but lets face it, you get all excited for prom and the D-Wade subs in for you….ouch, but then again D-Wade is hanging out with you at prom, so that’s pretty cool.
Today, with 5.09 left in the 3rd Quarter of the Memphis Grizzlies 88-84 series clinching win over the Oklahoma City Thunder… We unfortunately saw what could only be described as:
“The ugliest moment in towel waving history.“
After a year of solid bench gee-ups notably by bit guys Robert Sacre, Chris Duhon, Kent Bazemore, Patty Mills & Aron Baynes, we saw something from Grizzlies starter Tony Allen that would shame the fore-mentioned towel waving legends.
Allen, finding some rare minutes on the pine… Got “happy with it” & waved a towel around when Derek Fisher was taking a 3pt shot in-front of him. Unfortunately, whilst performing the move what Mills has dubbed “the smoke alarm”, Allen accidentally picked up 2 towels & threw one onto the court, right next to where Fisher was shooting.
The ruling – technical foul – basket counts – 1 shot.
People just shouldn’t be waving towels when it’s not their role, someone could have got hurt… Fisher could have slipped on the towel & done his knee, or worse yet… Allen could have in-fact dislocated his shoulder through the un-usual rotations & air-density that towel waving causes for someone who’s not used to the practice.
Stick to the court Tony & leave the towel waving to the guys who get paid to wave towels.

There are so many R.Kelly jokes I want to make about this…
Today in Dallas, the NBA Board of Governors voted 22-8 to let the Kings remain in Sacramento over re-locating to Seattle.
An amazing day in the history of the franchise after a lot of lobbying by the city & Mayor Kevin Johnson to pull together an ownership group & get a deal for a new arena down town to ensure that Sactown remains an NBA town.
Kings owner George Maloof, obviously dissapointed as his preferred option was to sell the team off to a Seattle based group lead by Chris Hansen (not the To Catch A Predator guy, another guy).
According to Sactown Royalty who was in Dallas for the decision, when Maloof got out of the meeting, he was chased across the hotel lobby by the media scrum, taking solace in the hotel’s Bell Stand…
After a number of minutes “trapped in the closet”, Maloof peered out to see if it was ok to byline the scrum, it wasn’t & Maloof remained in hiding for a small while.
Maloof then came out, answered a few questions jokingly until a PR rep quickly got him out of the situation & into the safety of a car.
Just another great moment in Maloof history.
Prior to Miami’s game four victory over the Chicago Bulls, Dwyane Wade nearly broke Twitter and the internet with his pre-game outfit…….well mainly it was the polka dotted capri pants.
Personally i’m a fan of the rolled up pants and while everyone is searching for answers behind Wade’s fashion forward get-up, look no further than Milhouse Van Houten, fashionable and practical.
Everything’s coming up D-Wade!
No NBA Playoff games today, not a problem! #believethehype still managed to bring a very comprehensive wrap-up of everything that happened…
Yesterday, the Bulls pulled off one of the biggest upset wins of the Playoffs so far this season. The undermanned Chicago team with injuries to key players including Derrick Rose & Kirk Hinrich pulled off a surprise 93-86 away victory in game 1 of their Conference Semi Finals series against the defending champions Miami Heat off the back of & a superhuman performance by 5’9 guard Nate Robinson (27pts, 9asts).
Of course, after a win like this, most teams would declare “on to the next one” then have a night in before an early morning of recovery, video & then drills to ensure that they can have a repeat performance in a couple of days time.
Not this Chicago Bulls…
It was off to the South Beach nightlife for some of the guys – Rip Hamilton, Vladamir Radmanovic, Nazr Mohammed, Taj Gibson & co champagned & campaigned in style with none other than Lil Wayne!
Classic Weezy move considering the former Miami Heat superfan’s dislike of Dwyane Wade & LeBron ignoring him courtside during times throughout the last few seasons. Add to this, he was kicked out of American Airlines earlier on this season for supporting the visiting the Los Angeles Lakers…
To add insult to the wounds that i’m sure the Heat don’t really want to hear or even feel, at a concert in February, he told the audience to yell out F*** NBA, Miami Heat, LeBron, Wade & then ended the rant by claiming that he had engaged in coitus with Chris Bosh’s wife.
So I guess, it was to be expected that Lil Wayne would become a Bulls Bandwagon jumper!
I look forward to seeing Lil Wayne courtside at the United Center in Game 3 & 4.
In addition to this, it should be noted that Vladamir Radmanovic is now leading the Nightclub Flat Brim Power Rankings by sporting that old school red Bulls cap.
So its official, LeBron James is the 2012/13 NBA Most Valuable Player, joining Kareem Abdul Jabbar (six), Michael Jordan (five), Wilt Chamberlain (five) and Bill Russell (five) in the “we got at least four MVP’s club.”
Russell and LeBron being the only players to win four MVP honours in a five year span. Not bad.
In a season which included an outrageous 27 game winning streak for his Miami Heat and averaging an even more outrageous 26.8 points, eight rebounds and 7.3 assists, shooting a career-high 56.5% from the field and a 31.6 PER, its fair to say LeBron was more than deserving of each of his 120 of a possible 121 first-place votes.
“I try to be the best player on the court every night when I step on the floor,” James said in his acceptance speech. All I can say is job done.
Congratulations LeBron from #believethehype, i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, LeBron James is very good at basketball.
Check out his full acceptance speech:
After Stephen Curry & the Golden State Warriors lost 107-100 at the Pepsi Center to the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 of their Playoff Series. When walking off the court, Curry exchanged in a colourful conversation with a Nuggets fan…
What was said? Well, our lip & body reading expert team here at #believethehype have come up with some possible scenarios:
- Fan: “Yo Steph, Cool Runnings is waaaaaaaaaaay better than Mighty Ducks!” Steph: “Maaan, are you cereal? Russ Tyler, Averman, Banks, Two Way Hockey! Ducks is all time bro, get with it.”
- Fan: “Yo Steph, how cool was it on Game of Thrones last night that Daenerys Targaryen’s Unsullied select Grey Worm as their leader?” Steph: “WTF brah? I’m only up to episode 4! Thanks for ruining to for me? Watch yo mouth before you open it kid!”
- Fan: “Yo Steph, I bet you can’t ski Aspen Bowl as well as I can…” Steph: “Man, i’d smoke you in a ski race… I’m legit on planks. Give me a time, a place & a location & i’ll towel you up on the POW!”
How do you think the exchange went down? Put your answers below…
It’s been a long year of Andrew Bynum… He’s been busy sitting down, getting cool hairstyles, purchasing & repping $2 suits, bowling, pop-a-shot, refusing to go back to his High School for a visit & not playing basketball for his Philadelphia 76ers. So to get away from it all, Bynum’s gone to Madrid for a holiday including some flamenco dancing at a local restaurant…
Luckily for us, the restaurant Cafe De Chintas caught the moment on video… Bynum’s sporting a very funny Ferrari jacket – official apparel of Italian homeless people & anyone from Michael Schumacher’s 2004 Christmas list.
