Steve Nash is still really embarrassed by his cowboy photo with Dirk and Mark Cuban.

From Grantland:
How much do you regret the photo, from all those years ago, with you, Dirk [Nowitzki], and [Mark] Cuban — the one with the cowboy hats? 
Oh my god. I don’t really believe in regret [laughs], but it’s highly embarrassing. That was for [Sports Illustrated]. 
I hadn’t actually remembered which outlet ran that thing. 
I think it was gonna actually be the cover, but it ended up just being an article. It was right when we won our first playoff series. But, yeah, I’m just glad it wasn’t me on someone’s back. But, really, it’s all bad.
Cowboy hats, awkward tween smiles, unnatural poses, and a "Mavericks Intensity" shirt, I can see why Steve is still embarrassed.

Charles Barkley may or may not have wet his pants in this photo with a fan.

Chuck is a real man of the people. Dude was probably making a beeline to the washroom, when this gentleman in the fancy jacket above, asked him for the picture. Respect.

Kyrie Irving and Nate Robinson goes head to head at Nike Pro City.

Kyrie Irving finished with 47 points and got the W. Nate Robinson scored 44 points and won the hearts of every short person ever. Summer league defense is still the greatest.

It's decided. Thanks to this video, I totally going to start working out again on the first day of August. *crosses fingers*

Nerlens Noel does the "Gangnam Style" dance with kids.

So Nerlens, I take it you heard about the Dwight Howard therapy, and before you proceed any further with the treatment, here is a warning. It didn't actually work. It was just another classic Dwight Howard lie. Your knees will not return to the way things were by just doing the Gangnam Style. Just go back to your regular scheduled rehab, and take your time. You play for Philly, they will understand. They appreciate a good head of hair.

Tyreke Evans crosses up the Mayor of Seattle at Jamal Crawford's Pro-Am game.

Not many can recover after getting Shammgod'd at half-speed, so shout-out to the 53 year old Seattle Mayor for the sweet no-look pass.

Learn to speak with a Boston accent with Paul Pierce.

15 years. Paul Pierce has been with the Boston Celtics for 15 years. It's going to be weird not seeing him in green anymore and faking knee injuries (totally joking, please don't hate me). Anyway, get well soon, Celtics fans, learning that you lost your franchise player over pizza can't make this break-up any worst.

John Wall's super weird dance on the sidewalk.

Nope. No comment. There are just no words to describe what just unfolded before my eyes.

Dwyane Wade inhales helium from a balloon for fun.

I have always wondered what I would sound like as Alvin the Chipmunk, but nooo, mama said helium balloons were dangerous. Which is probably right, because if I had some chipmunk gas and sang Boyz II Men, I would surely have all the girls in seventh grade back then, and maybe the girl in the ponytail that's always hanging by the monkey bars would have noticed me. *sadface* Who knew girls weren't into dandelions picked from the school yard. I thought I was a genius at the time too.

Getting squished by a 7 foot, 350 pound (I know it says 325 in his playing days, but this is in his Cleveland years, dude moved like he got shot in the legs) monster will do this to a man. I feel for you, Joakim. I once had judo sparring practice in gym class with a 6 foot 2, slightly obese 250-something pound man, (keep in mind, I am only 5'8") that nearly crushed my rib cage. He also drenched me in his sweat. So, my traumatic experience wasn't too different from yours, bro.

Kyrie Irving's NBA Live 14' cover and my tragic story.

I still remember it vividly, the last time I played NBA Live was in 07', I was using the Phoenix Suns (because at that time, the Steve Nash to Shawn Marion fast break alley-oop combo was nearly unstoppable even on the highest difficulty), and was playing against a friend who was using the Miami Heat. The game was close mostly due to the fact that neither of us could play defense (or hit any free throws), and it went down to the wire. Up 2 with merely 3 seconds left, I thought I had the my bragging rights in the bag and I was ready to go all up in his ear too. But 2 seconds of choppy animation later, video game Shaq launches a half court shot, wins the game, ruins my life for the next two weeks, and that was the last time I ever played a NBA Live video game. To this day, I still haven't forgotten the animation of a grieving Steve Nash, pounding his chest in pain. It broke my little Canadian heart.

Anyway, as you can see, Kyrie Irving is on the cover of NBA Live 14' and he looks super old.

Here's a video of his introduction to the game.

Hate you, NBA Live.

And when they sell out (which they will, make sure you release limited edition hairstyles), then you can go back to making bobble-heads but instead of just putting springs in the head, you place them in the knees too, for realism of course, and totally not as a sick joke that I am probably over-doing.

LeBron James has his own personal 24/7 hotel room DJ.

Okay, I get how this is kind of cool, to have your own 24/7 DJ, but after 365 days of waking up to Lion King's "Circle of Life," and leaving the toilet to the Rocky's "Gonna Fly Now (training theme)," right after a huge dump, there's no way you would not get sic... WAIT! I THINK I JUST CONVINCED MYSELF THAT THIS IS IN FACT TOTALLY AWESOME AND I WANT ONE, LIKE NOW. Hopefully he can get here before my first coffee tomorrow morning.

Paul George says Larry Bird is still very good at shooting a basketball.

GREATEST MUSTACHE OF ALL TIME. (Jerry Wachter/Getty Images)
In a recent interview with SLAM, Paul George reveals that the Indiana Pacers team president, and one of NBA's greatest players, Larry Bird, can still shoot the lights out of the gym at the age of 56.
SLAM: I believe you had talked about seeing Larry shoot in the gym. 
PG: He picked a ball up that had rolled over. He rolled up his sleeves and made about 15 in a row and just walked out like nothing just happened. It was the craziest thing I've seen. 
SLAM: How did you and the rest of the team react? 
PG: We were speechless. We didn't know whether to keep shooting or just to end practice. It was sweet, man.
Of course he still got it. He is Larry "M----- F------" Bird. This is the man who once played a half of a NBA basketball game with just his left hand, scored 20 of his total 47 points with it, and got the W. He's a bad dude.

No, really, you guys. It's true. And it is going to be the best thing ever, probably. 

From ESPN:
Former NBA player Rasheed Wallace has agreed to a two-year deal to join the Detroit Pistons' coaching staff and was on the bench Monday during the team's summer league game against the Boston Celtics. 
Wallace also had a notorious reputation for being one of the most volatile and temperamental players in the league. He routinely led the league in technical fouls and finished with 317 for his career. Moments before his coaching debut Monday, Wallace said he was ready for a change of pace and joked he would remain calm in his new job. 
"I'm not expending the energy out there, running back and forth, [telling referees], 'I'm out here busting my [tail] and you're not giving me a call,'" Wallace said about keeping his emotions in check as an assistant coach. "Being over there on the sideline, you try to be more of a motivational inspiration for the kids."
Yea okay, Sheed. You are not getting this one over anybody. Not even your player could vouch for you.

I am now taking any over/under bets on the number of "ball don't lie(s)" and technical fouls per game. My guess would be ALL OF THEM, because you know, he's Sheed.

I didn't care when you went back and forth with your decision, but this, this is unforgivable.

From Forbes (Via: PBT):
“Chandler was relentless,” explained a source close to the situation to FORBES. ”[Chandler] called and texted [Dwight] every day, even face-timed and would answer every question Dwight could potentially have. We would drive to his house in the hills and talk to him. Basically Chandler Parsons recruited him like Nick Saban and a 5-star defensive tackle; they hardly knew each other at beginning of process.”
Chandler, this is your fault too, in a midst of your chase for Dwight, you completely forgot who was the most important person in your life, I am so telling Jeremy. I always knew you were going to break his heart. You boy band types are to never be trusted.
