The Miami Heat have a 2-1 lead over the Boston Celtics in the second round of the NBA playoffs, but LeBron James is turning up the heat on and off the court. Gossip blogs are reporting LeBron is having an affair with American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.
The singers has been catching headlines for her slim down figure and has caught the attention of the King of Miami. LeBron’s high school sweetheart is 6-months pregnant with the couples third child. This is not the first celebrity LeBron has been accused of cheating with. Past alleged flames include Kim Kardashian and Ciara. Ironically both of them are currently dating NBA players.
The NBA playoffs are the hottest tickets in town in Chicago, but there were two noticeable empty seats last night at the United Center for Game 1 of the Orlando Magic- Chicago Bulls second round matchup. Just before the end of the regular season, the Bulls and Magic faced eachother. After the game, Orlando’s Jameer Nelson was caught on camera telling Bulls’ Derrick Rose, “I’ll catch you in the second round.” But Nelson ran into one small road block, the Atlanta Hawks bounced the Magic in the first round.
Luckily, the Hawks were there to help Nelson out by leaving two tickets in his name at will-call at Chicago’s United Center. Head of Atlanta Hawks PR Arthur Triche tweeted, @HawksPRGuy, “Taking a page out of [former NFL coach] Jerry Glanville’s book, I think I’ll follow through on Jameer’s request to catch Derrick Rose in the 2nd round.”
While the tickets were not claimed, in Nelson’s defense they were in the 300 section!
Despite being the No.1 overall seed in the NBA, the Chicago Bulls struggled against the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 of the playoffs…that is until Derrick Rose scored 39 points to help the Bulls come from behind and win, 104-99. After the game, Pacers guard Danny Granger described Rose’s persistence like a “crazy stalker ex-girlfriend. Every time you tell her you don’t want to talk to her, she’ll show up at your door again.”
