Blake Griffin Dog Attack Victim Files Motion To Dismiss Lawsuit: Report

Blake Griffin was in the midst being sued back in February after an alleged incident in June where his dog attacked a 64-year-old man who was eating at A Votre Sante in Los Angeles. Emmanuel Aframian claims that he was eating and minding his own business when all a sudden, the dog lunged at him in a vicious attack. During the time the lawsuit, Aframian said that he had endured “disabling and permanent” all while claiming that the dog had a past being violent towards people.

According to The Blast, Aframian filed a request to have his lawsuit against the Detroit Pistons star dismissed. It’s an interesting development considering Aframian appeared to be adamant about his charges in February. As right now, it’s unclear as to whether or not Griffin settled with Aframian out court. If they did, that is certainly the reason why this lawsuit would be dismissed so suddenly.

Griffin has been keeping a low prile since being swept from the playfs against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Pistons big man was recently asked about future NBA draft pick Zion Williamson, where he explained how the Duke star could be one the best dunkers to ever play the game.

Dennis Rodman Accused Of Slapping Man Across The Face At Birthday Party: Report

What’s been going on with Dennis Rodman lately? Just weeks ago he was accused robbing a Newport Beach, California yoga studio twice, and now it’s being reported that he’s shown a man “what the five fingers said to the face.” TMZ Sports has obtained a report that states Rodman was celebrating his birthday by hosting a shindig at the Buddha Sky Bar in Florida on May 17. A man named Jeff Soulouque told the Delray Beach Police Department that he was an attendee at the event when all a sudden Rodman “unprovokedly turned around and smacked him.”

According to Soulouque, the retired NBA star immediately apologized for the hit and to make amends, invited Soulouque out to dinner the following evening. It must have been one helluva slap because later on, Soulouque was in so much pain that he visited a hospital where he was diagnosed with a left corneal abrasion. On May 18, he decided to file a police report.

A witness to the incident named David Lee Roth—no, not the singer Van Halen but another guy with the same name—corroborated the alleged victim’s story. The police report reads, “Roth stated he was about twenty feet away and he saw Rodman turn around and open hand smack Soulouque two times.” Investigators are hoping that the Buddha Sky Bar has surveillance footage the evening that shows whether or not Soulouque is being truthful. Meanwhile, Rodman’s lawyer told TMZ Sports that his client is innocent.

“I’ve spoken with people who were with Dennis the entire night the alleged incident at Buddha Sky Bar,” he said. “No one saw any such incident occur and Dennis was sober the entire night. Currently the matter is in its preliminary stages but we fully expect after a thorough investigation that no such incident will be substantiated. Dennis denies any such incident occurred.

Ne-Yo Awarded $6.4 Million From Ex-Manager Convicted Of Stealing His Money

Crime doesn’t pay, and Kevin Foster is learning that the hard way. The former accountant and business manager to Ne-Yo and Brian McKnight was recently convicted in Columbus, Ohio a slew crimes including wire fraud, money laundering, and tax evasion. The 43-year-old was reportedly also accused convincing Ne-Yo to invest $2 million into a sports drink company called OXYwater without alerting the singer that Foster was both the CEO and the CFO. He also allegedly took $1.5 million from Ne-Yo’s bank account without permission and forged the singer’s signature to open a line credit worth $1.4 million.

The U.S. Department Justice wrote that Foster used the cash to fund his luxury lifestyle. He reportedly purchased a Mercedes, a Bentley, a Jaguar, a Rolls-Royce, expensive jewelry, and extensive wardrobe, lavish vacations, and season tickets to NFL and NBA games. Foster was sentenced to 89 months (over seven years) in prison and now both Ne-Yo and McKnight can celebrate being awarded restitution. Ne-Yo will receive $6,456,250 and McKnight will be paid $151,675.

“Foster deceived his victims into believing they were investing in a pritable sports beverage company when, in reality, he was using their money as a personal slush fund for his lavish lifestyle,” U.S. Attorney Benjamin C. Glassman said in a statement, according to justice.gov. “His ongoing and systematic deception also included stealing millions dollars in additional funds. Not only did Foster betray the trust his clients who believed he would act in their best interest, but he also used his accounting expertise to fraudulently report his income and live a virtually tax-free life.”

LaVar Ball Thinks His Sons Will Be The NBA’s First On-Court Billionaires

There is no denying that LaVar Ball is a great father in the sense that he has a never-ending belief that his sons will be great. LaVar’s sons have been pretty successful as far as basketball goes. Lonzo is on the Los Angeles Lakers, while LaMelo has quite a bit potential to make the NBA some day. LiAngelo hasn’t been as successful as his brothers but he is an adequate basketball player nonetheless. 

In a recent interview for this month’s Slam Magazine cover story, LaVar spoke about his sons and fered a bold prediction when it comes to the wealth they’re going to acquire while playing in the NBA. 

“My boys are gonna be the first ones to be billionaires playing on the court. I got other stuff in line to get that,” Ball explained. “Whatever my boys are playing for on the court, that’ll be chump change. You don’t have guys doing that. One guy gets a championship and next thing you know he wants his own team, bigger contracts.”

LaVar is currently in the midst relaunching the Big Baller Brand and as he explained, the Ball brothers will never have to play for money, because they’ll already have enough from their business ventures.

“My boys will go 15, 20 years without breaking up. You don’t get that anymore,” Ball said. “They’re not playing for the bag. It’s not, ‘If you don’t give me $50 million, I’m gone.'”

Once again, LaVar is proving why he’s one the most entertaining father’s in all sports.

Patrick Beverley Reacts To Being Left Off NBA All-Defensive Teams

Today, the NBA unveiled the ten players that make up its NBA all-defensive teams. The all-defensive first team includes Giannis Antetokounmpo, Eric Bledsoe, Rudy Gobert, Paul George, and Marcus Smart. Meanwhile, the second team has Jrue Holiday, Klay Thompson, Joel Embiid, Draymond Green, and Kawhi Leonard. While all these players are deserving, there has already been quite a bit debate surrounding those who were snubbed from the list. One the players many people thought deserved a spot was Los Angeles Clippers player Patrick Beverley.

Beverley was an absolute terror while defending Kevin Durant in the first round the playfs as the two were embroiled in a pretty intense beef throughout that six-game series. With Beverley’s staunch defense, it was expected that he would at least make it onto the NBA all-defensive second team list but clearly, that wasn’t in the cards.

The Clippers player took to Twitter today where he simply said: “Lol that’s funny!!!” after the list had dropped. Three simple words but they conveyed his thoughts perfectly. It’s obvious the Clippers star knows his worth and felt he was absolutely deserving the honor.

Do you think Beverley should have made it and if not, was the current list good or does it need an update? Let us know.

NBA Announces All-Defensive First And Second Teams

The NBA has today announced the 2018-19 All-Defensive First Team, featuring Milwaukee Bucks teammates Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe, as well as Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George, and Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart.

Giannis, Gobert and George – the three finalists for the 2018-19 Kia NBA Defensive Player the Year Award – finished with nearly identical point totals as the top vote-getters for the NBA All-Defensive Teams.

Gobert led all with 196 a possible 200 points (97 First Team votes), as he earned First Team honors for the third consecutive season. PG received 195 points (96 First Team votes) while Giannis earned 193 points (94 First Team votes) en route to his first First Team selection. The winner the 2018-19 Kia NBA Defensive Player the Year Award will be revealed at the third annual NBA Awards on Monday, June 24 at 9pm ET on TNT. 

The 2018-19 NBA All-Defensive Second Team consists New Orleans guard Jrue Holiday (90 points), Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (82), Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (80), Warriors forward Draymond Green (61) and Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard (39).  This is the first NBA All-Defensive Team selection for Thompson, a five-time NBA All-Star.

According to NBA.com, the NBA All-Defensive Teams were selected by a global panel 100 sportswriters and broadcasters.  Players were awarded two points for each First Team vote and one point for each Second Team vote.  Voters selected two guards, two forwards and one center for each team, choosing players at the position they play regularly.  Players who received votes at multiple positions were slotted at the position where they received the most votes.

Did Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Signature Shoe Release Date Leak Early?

Giannis Antetokounmpo was one the best players in the NBA this season thanks to his monstrous dunks and staunch defense. The Greek Freak is one the three finalists for the MVP award and he is easily one the most deserving. In addition to his great play on the court, Giannis is set to receive his very own signature shoe with Nike dubbed the Nike Zoom Freak 1.

So far, there have been leaked images the shoe including the blue and orange colorway which can be seen below. There has been very little information regarding this shoe and its release date, although now we may have a hint. Solestory, a Swedish retailer, recently added the shoe to its Release Calendar, with a “TOTAL ORANGE/MIDNIGHT NAVY-WHITE” colorway set to drop on June 29th this year.

The Bucks star has yet to play a game in his new shoe and there hasn’t been much information in terms pricing on the sneaker. It seems as though Nike is trying to keep everything a secret right now so it’s surprising to see this information come to the surface.

Stay tuned for updates regarding this shoe as we will be sure to bring them to you.

Memphis Grizzlies Expected To Trade Mike Conley: Report

The Memphis Grizzlies are reportedly locked in on drafting Murray State point guard Ja Morant with the second overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft on June 20, which will likely signal the end Mike Conley’s tenure in Memphis. 

According to The New York Times’ Marc Stein, the Grizzlies “are widely expected to use the No. 2 pick on Murray State’s Ja Morant and trade the ever-reliable Mike Conley.” The 12-year veteran was selected fourth overall by Memphis out Ohio State in 2007, and he has spent his entire career with the franchise.

The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor recently reported that the Utah Jazz are among the teams expected to pursue Conley. O’Connor notes, “multiple league sources said this week that the Jazz are expected to make another push”for the 31-year old lefty.

Last season with the Grizz, Conley averaged a career-high 21.1 points with 6.4 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 70 appearances this season. The issue with Conley, however, is his hefty contract. He is guaranteed $32 million in 2019-20 and any team looking to make a trade would also have to be willing to pay him $34.5 million in the 2020-21 season as part his original five-year, $153 million contract.

Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer which will clear up some cap space if the team does want to make a deal for Conley.

NBA Youngboy Offers To Pay Funeral Costs For Man Who Died In Shooting: Report

It’s been a trying time for Youngboy Never Broke Again. While his entire career has been plagued by legal issues, he’s dealing with even more troubles in his life. Earlier this month, the rapper was in Miami for Rolling Loud where he was scheduled to perform. While he was leaving the Trump International Beach Resort Miami, the rapper was targetted in a shooting. The rapper wasn’t hit but a man nearby was killed by a stray bullet. Now, it’s being reported that he and his record label, Atlantic Records, are trying to give the victim’s family some sort financial ease.

Mohamad Jradi, 43, was identified as the man who was shot and killed in the shooting that targetted Youngboy Never Broke Again. The man worked as an employee at Hertz Rental Cars. According to The Blast, Youngboy and Atlantic Records are “heartbroken” over the man’s death and have fered to cover the costs for the funeral. Reps have contacted Florida ficials to help them track down and speak with Jradi’s family.

Although Jradi was the only victim who died, three others were injured in the shooting including a five-year-old boy and Youngboy’s girlfriend.

Although Youngboy is currently locked up on possible probation violation charges, his lawyer issued a statement, saying the rapper was a victim an “assassination attempt.” He added, “Youngboy] told me, ‘I wish they would have gotten me, not him,’” 

NBA Finals 2019 Schedule: Dates, Times, Where To Watch

Last night, the Golden State Warriors punched their ticket into the NBA Finals for a fifth-straight year. Tonight, the Toronto Raptors take on the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 their Eastern Conference Final matchup. With the series at 2-1 in favor the Bucks, the Raptors can force a minimum six games with a win. This would certainly help the Warriors who will have a lot more rest than their potential opponents. 

The NBA Finals will begin on May 30th and according to Sporting News, Game 7 the ECF would be on May 27th. This means the winner that series would only have three days rest, while the Warriors would have nine. Check out the full NBA Finals schedule below.

May 30 Game 1 at Milwaukee/Toronto 9 p.m. ET (ABC)
June 2 Game 2 at Milwaukee/Toronto 8 p.m. ET (ABC)
June 5 Game 3 at Golden State 9 p.m. ET (ABC)
June 7 Game 4 at Golden State 9 p.m. ET (ABC)
June 10* Game 5 at Milwaukee/Toronto 8 p.m. ET (ABC)
June 13* Game 6 at Golden State 9 p.m. ET (ABC)
June 16* Game 7 at Milwaukee/Toronto 9 p.m. ET (ABC)

If watching on TV isn’t your speed, you’ll be able to live stream all the games through Watch ESPN which is certainly an adequate alternative. 

Who do you think the Warriors will be playing against and do you think they have what it takes to win their third-straight title?

NLE Choppa Snaps At Fan Who Compares Him To NBA YoungBoy

In his music, NLE Choppa has been compared to NBA YoungBoy on numerous occasions. The two rappers have similar styles, both hailing from the south and spitting rhymes about their experiences in the street. Choppa is a newer face than YoungBoy but considering the fact they’re both teenagers, sound similar and have near-identical come-ups, the comparison makes sense. In the past, Choppa hasn’t been too disturbed by the YoungBoy talk. After all, the 19-year-old is insanely successful and has one the biggest followings in the world. On another note though, Choppa wants to stand out from the crowd so the Memphis spitter finally clapped back at a fan when he got sick hearing about YoungBoy.

The 16-year-old Choppa posted a photo himself with some Jamaican slang as his caption, writing, “Dread Headed Don DaDa NO RAP CAP.” One fan hopped into his comments to make a comparison that, at this point, has simply run its course. “Wanna be youngboy so bad,” said the hater. The comments section has since been disabled but according to Akademiks’ page, the artist came back with some words to differentiate himself from NBA YoungBoy. 

“Bitch u sound dumb ash,” he said. “I’m half Jamaican and don dada is a Jamaican slang/term shut yo dumb ass up yall mfers think youngboy started everything so if younoy tryna be Jamaican fytb.”

Clearly, NLE Choppa has had enough the back-and-forth and he’s ready to move past the constant shadow NBA YoungBoy.

Here's a List of Every PledgeMusic Board Member

Who’s on the mysterious PledgeMusic board of directors?  These guys.

Earlier this week, the PledgeMusic board of directors with a terse statement on the PledgeMusic site.  The statement emerged as investigations and potentially criminal charges loom, depending on the severity of what occurred prior to PledgeMusic’s bankruptcy.

The statement offered no assurances that artists or funders would be paid or reimbursed.  Artists were encouraged to download all of their materials previously uploaded to the site.

Initially, top executives at the company were blamed for the sordid situation that featured frozen funds, outright lying to artists and their backers, and disastrous crowdfunding campaigns.  But separate sources to Digital Music News have also been pointing the finger at the company’s board for creating a company potentially guilty of financial fraud, embezzlement, and other malfeasance.

But who’s on this mysterious board?  On that note, one source pointed DMN to a recent filing with the UK Companies House, which lists all of the company’s directors — past and present.

All of this information is publicly available.

Andre Iguodala Say Steph Curry Is "The Second Best Ever"

Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors are headed to the NBA Finals for the fifth straight season, despite the fact that Kevin Durant has been sidelined with a strained right calf. In KD’s absence, Curry has been absolutely stellar, averaging 36.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.3 assists in the Western Conference Finals, while shooting 46.9% from the floor, 42.6% from behind the arc.

The two-time NBA MVP, who received some criticism following a lackluster first two round the playfs, appears to have quieted the haters for the time being. That said, the true Curry supporters never really left.

According to his teammate Andre Iguodala, Curry is the second best player to ever lace ’em up.

“I think he’s the second best ever,” Iguodala said, according to Marcus Thompson The Athletic. “I always thought that about him. I knew but other people didn’t know. So I wasn’t surprised when he took over that series. But I always gave Tony Allen credit. Playing against him made you understand the grind how hard it is to win. It’s supposed to be hard. You’re supposed to have to find another way. It’s supposed to be uncomfortable. He just embraced that. Just ingrained that into his system and it’s been there ever since.”

Thompson later clarified that Iggy has Michael Jordan as the only player that ranks above Steph.

Pelicans Are Confident Anthony Davis Will Want To Stay In New Orleans

It was no secret this season that Anthony Davis wanted to get as far away from the New Orleans Pelicans as possible. After a successful postseason last year, the Pelicans were abysmal this season which led to Davis publicly stating that he wanted a trade out the city. After weeks speculation, a trade never happened and as a result, Davis had his minutes limited. Davis took the pettiness one step further during the last game the season when he wore a “That’s all Folks” t-shirt.

Since then, the Pelicans’ fortunes have changed as they won the NBA Draft Lottery, giving themselves the first pick in the draft. It is expected they will take Zion Williamson with the pick which would be a big draw for Davis to rethink his willingness to leave. For Pelicans president David Griffin, the team now believes it’s in a position to keep Davis on board.

“We’re very confident that we have a compelling situation for him here,” Griffin said, according to SNY.

Whether Davis stays or not remains to be seen but there is no denying just how powerful Zion could be in this equation. If Davis chooses to leave, the free agent period is going to be filled with some pretty juicy trade speculation.
