Juuuust in case you missed it…here it is. The worst moment of Jason Terry‘s career thus far. BOOM!!!
Bryant joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387), Karl Malone (36,928), Michael Jordan (32,292) and Wilt Chamberlain (31,419) as the only players to tally 30,000 or more points in the NBA, per Basketball-Reference.
Not only is Kobe the youngest player to reach this milestone, at the age of 34…he also the only player to do so while playing for just one club. The M. congratulates you! 🙂
So apparently it pays WELL to stfu! Circulating through the sports and entertainment world currently is the news that NBA baller Stephon Marbury agreed to pay his former personal chef/side chick $900,000 to keep quiet about their short lived fling. According to news sources Marbury hired Thurayyah Mitchell back in 2006 as the personal chef for his family. The two alledgedly has consensual sex about 5 times after which Mitchell claims she felt pressured to have relations with her then boss (and Tasha Marbury’s husband) in order to keep her job. Stephon fired her shortly thereafter BUT…agreed to pay her the $900,000 if she would agree to keep quiet about the affair as to not embarrass him or his family. Fair trade you say? Soo then, why are we talking about it now you ask?
Oh…because alledgedly after sticking with the agreement up to about the $600,000 mark, ol’ Stephon decided to stop paying. Apparently, Ms. Mitchell wasn’t having that! She went to an arbitrator to get a ruling on the remaining $300,000 that she said she was owed…and won! The filing became public on friday after her lawyers asked a judge to enforce the award. There has been no official statement from Marbury himself but rumor has it that his wife Tasha will be on the next “Basketball Wives“. All I can say is that must’ve been some goood…nevermind. The M as always wishes all parties involved…the best. 😉
Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade is set to release a memoir of fatherhood. The book titled “A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball” details his personal experiences as a parent and the transformation of being raised by a single parent, to becoming one himself.
The book is scheduled to hit shelves Sept. 4th 2012. Best wishes D. Wade 🙂
Los Angeles Laker Metta World Peace rocked a Vancouver Grizzlies jersey this weekend as he took the stage to entertain patrons at a Vancouver bar….question…is it just me or is it kind of messed up to wear another team’s jersey when your team is paying you $33 million. Ijs.
He does have us wondering if he’s trying to make a point though. Hmmm…we’ll see.
Metta is also slated to star in a Lifetime Movie alongside former 90210 actress Jennie Garth, titled “The Eleventh Victim”. The movie is scheduled to debut this upcoming Fall.
So…after all the talk (and money) surrounding Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s pending divorce, sources say the two are working towards reconciling. Within the past few months it’s said that Vanessa and Kobe have been at a good polace with each other, and considering staying together. Though Vanessa was awarded 3 homes while the couple were working out the legalities of their situation…she has not yet signed any final documents for the divorce. The two of them are reportedly still living seperately but have been spotted out together. The M. loves these two and hopes for the sake of the children they can work it out…and Kobe can keep it in his pants, if that’s the issue. 🙂
