“Tebowing”… soooo 2011. “Griffining”… soooo 2012. 2014 is the year of “LeBroning.” It’s what all the crazy kids are doing on Vine nowadays. LeBron James, aka the face and identity of the NBA is known to exaggerate his body in order to get a foul called, otherwise known as “flopping.”
Flopping- The art of de-masculating yourself and contorting your body in such ways to gain attention of the referee in the hopes of getting a foul called against your opponent.
Teenagers and pathetic adults have taken to the popular social media platform, Vine, to post their own renditions of “LeBroning.” Forgive the piss-poor YouTube clip, but you should get the picture. If the YouTube post doesn’t do the art of “LeBroning” any justice search Twitter or Vine under the hashtag #LeBroning and you’ll get it.
Michael Jordan recently participated in a game of beer pong and was taken to school by a couple regular bros. You can’t hold it against MJ for not being the pro you expected, but you should probably expect him to be better than you at anything else in life. Pretty cool for MJ to stop in with a couple rando’s at the Ritz Carleton in Miami and have a little fun.
If the circumstances of Ron Artest’s acting debut couldn’t be any more strange than he is, we’d be lying to you. Artest, or Metta World Peace, whatever his name is, stars alongside former 90210 star, Jennie Garth in a Lifetime movie written by resident CNN psychopath, Nancy Grace called The Eleventh Victim. Artest plays a detective named Garlin Fincher. Notice the warmth and compassion that Artest displays at the end of this clip. The hug he shares with Garth just has Emmy award written all over it. You can’t make this stuff up folks
Blake Griffin appeared this week on Conan and discussed some of the new features of the upcoming NBA 2K13. Griffin also revealed the Clippers secret weapon for the 2013 season, Conan O’Brien himself. Griffin shows a clip where Conan was inserted into the game setting him up for a monster alley-oop Sadly, CoCo might not have been such a secret because in the next clip he’s show in Celtics uniform draining a three.
Hats off to Carmelo Anthony for this prank. Melo was recently brought to life in Manhattan at Madame Tussauds. Fans got an up close and personal experience with the Knicks superstar.
You gotta start em’ early when it comes to calling out a bad call. Sometimes good parenting gets put on the back-burner for a greater cause. Well, maybe allowing your daughter to be out of diapers before she drops an F-Bomb would be slightly more appropriate. Check out this upset Celtics fan ranting at his TV as the fruit of his loins is expressing her disgust right alongside him.
In Carmelo Anthony’s return to the Knicks starting lineup, thins got a little tense in the locker room with overnight sensation Jeremy Lin. Not really, but this is still worth the share and should at least warrant a little laughter.
