THE NEw YORK KNICKS HAVE A NEW POINT GUARD
The NBA free agency period is fully underway and the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bull’s have agreed to a trade that will send former all-star point guard Derrick Rose to the Big Apple. Once considered the face of the Bull’s franchise, Rose has struggled ever since his 2011 MVP season, dealing with various knee injuries, and constant media scrutiny which questioned his toughness. The New York Knicks in return immediately get an upgrade at the point guard position and will surely be in the mix for several free agents this summer. Do you think it will help the Knicks become a championship caliber team?

Magic Johnson apparently isn’t much of a trash-talker. However, he did decide to talk some trash on MJ during a scrimmage for the “Dream Team.” The result only ended with Michael Jordan going hammer, so yeah, don’t talk shit on the greatest of all-time.
He also talked about the time he played basketball with Prince:
Dude Perfect just put out this recent trick shot video that features them breaking a bunch of world records. The guys broke a total of 11 records all involving basketball trick shots. I just wonder how many attempts it took to get each one.

Last December, LeBron James signed a lifetime deal with Nike and immediately everyone jumped into guessing how much the deal was worth. Well, thanks to an interview with his manager Maverick Carter, GQ was able to discover that it could possibly be worth more than a billion dollars.
Apparently, Carter did not verbally confirm this, but when asked about a line in Kanye’s song “Facts” stating the deal was worth a billion, Maverick simply smiled and pointed up. However much the number is, it’s the largest deal in Nike’s history. And for LeBron James, it’s certainly worth it.
Take a look back at some of LeBron’s signature shoes with Nike:

Once upon a time right before being drafted, Shaquille O’Neal spent $1 million in just a day. In this video, he explains what he spent the money on. I can’t say that I blame him, probably would have done the same thing myself.
For the past 30 years, the NCAA has put out a “One Shining Moment” highlight tape that recaps the NCAA Tournament. Every year an artist contributes their vocals singing the classic David Barrett song. Someone decided to change things up and use Future’s “March Madness” instead. It’s pretty great.
