Spurs Tony Parker injured in Chris Brown-Drake brawl over Rihanna

Tony Parker might want to start avoiding nightclubs. While Parker is used to having his name in tabloids from his days with ex-wife Eva Longoria, it's hard to fathom the French hoops player would ever end up in the same headlines as rapper Drake and singers Chris Brown and Rihanna. (Although he did have a brief hip-hop stint let's not forget.)
But leave it to the W.i.P nightclub in New York to bring them all together. It turns out Parker was in the wrong place at the wrong time on Wednesday night. Or Thursday morning, rather.
The San Antonio Spurs guard says he suffered a scratched retina on one of his eyes during a brawl at the New York City nightclub involving Brown and members of Drake's entourage. The fight was reported to be over singer Rihanna.

Parker, wearing dark sunglasses, described the incident Friday in Paris during a news conference posted on YouTube. He said he expects to be sidelined for about a week while the French team prepares for the Summer Olympics. Parker described the incident: "I was with my friend Chris Brown and me and my friends took some punches, so I'll be missing the start of the French team because I can't do anything for a week except keep the lens in and then take drops."
Police said Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard were among several people injured during the bottle-hurling fight early Thursday.
Parker said "they started throwing bottles everywhere. I don't know what happened. At first it was OK, but then it started getting worse and when the plane landed it was really hurting so I went straight to the ER."
The Spurs declined comment.

Brown tweeted a picture of his chin that had a large, open gash, shortly after the fight was said to have taken place.

Miami Heat Spend Entire Plane Ride To Game 1 Planning Victory Parade

OKLAHOMA CITY—Sources within the Miami Heat organization reported Tuesday that the Eastern Conference champions spent their entire flight to Oklahoma City planning their NBA championship victory parade. "We should each get our own victory float with our own music, and the whole city will come out for the biggest celebration Miami's ever seen," Chris Bosh told his teammates 24 hours before the tipoff for Game 1 of the Finals, as Udonis Haslem eagerly joined in to describe all the beautiful bikini-clad who would be dancing throughout South Beach. "Then when we get to the stage, fireworks go off while we just spray champagne all over. God, I wish it were next week already so we could just start the victory party." Moments before the flight landed at Will Rogers World Airport, head coach Erik Spoelstra demanded his players settle down, be quiet, and focus on how cool it would be if he arrived in a helicopter to deliver the Larry O'Brien Trophy to the rest of the team on a big stage.

Raiders rookie gets out of ticket because he’s a Raider; tells the world about it on Twitter

Here's some free advice that evidently, no one ever gave to Oakland Raiders rookie defensive lineman Christo Bilukidi: If you happen to slip up some day and break the law, try not to follow that up immediately with an act of public stupidity. It's best to space these things out.
After recently breaking the law and getting away with it, Bilukidi took to Twitter with this:
Ran a red light n got pulled over, cop ask me what I do n I said I'm a Raider, I dodged a 428$ ticket. #BigLeague
Yes. #BigLeague. Also #DumbLeague.
When a cop gives you a gift, it's probably best to not turn around and humiliate that cop on Twitter. By letting an offender go because of their "celebrity," he is failing to do his job. Congratulations on being #BigLeague and all, but maybe you could find a method of celebration that doesn't include railroading the cop who just did you a favor.
That cop ‒ though he may deserve it ‒ probably does not want his superiors and/or the rest of the world to know that he's going around letting Raiders flout the law at their whimsy. The next time he pulls someone over, he probably does not want to hear, "Come on, man, don't give me a ticket. You let that Raiders guy out of a ticket, and the Raiders haven't been over .500 since people still respected the work of M. Night Shyamalan."
As a side note, does it surprise anyone that cops are out there giving Raiders a break? Imagine what the history of that franchise would look like if the cops were out to get the Raiders. Yikes.
Anyway, Bilukidi deleted the tweet, which is a good sign. Perhaps he's learned a valuable lesson about Twitter here, and if he has, that'll serve him well through the rest of his career. Of course, he wouldn't need that lesson if he'd just stop running red lights, but that's a lesson for another day.

Manny Pacquiao Fight Was the Fix In?

Manny Pacquiao lost a VERY controversial split decision last night to Timothy Bradley, setting the stage for a rematch ... that seemingly was already in the works! Something smells fishy ...

The internet set on fire last night when Pacquiao was declared the loser ... even though anyone with two eyes (or even one) could see he won the fight easily.

Bradley tweeted a photo of a poster for the rematch back on May 29. Most experts agree that a decisive Manny victory would have meant no rematch.

So we gotta ask ...was it fixed?????

Welcome to the "Jungle" LeBron James and Dwyane Wade!

Boston Celtics fans are all class all the time. In a closeout game that absolutely everyone in the national media seemed sure they’d win, the Celtics choked at home and lost 98-79. After that loss, the fans that were oh so certain that they would be celebrating on Thursday night were understandably salty – so one of them threw a drink at LeBron James' head.
