Lance Stephenson Shows His Flopping Game Is Already in Midseason Form vs. Bulls

Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich made contact with Charlotte Hornets star Lance Stephenson on this play in Sunday’s preseason game. However, nobody is buying that Hinrich made that much contact, Lance.

It’s only the preseason, but Stephenson’s flopping game is clearly in midseason form. With his level of theatrics, the former Pacer better have plenty of money set aside for fines this season.

Lance Stephenson Shows off Rapping Skills in New Freestyle

Lance Stephenson took care of business by signing a contract with the Charlotte Hornets earlier this offseason. With his immediate basketball future settled, he’s now demonstrating some of his off-the-court talents with a basketball-themed freestyle rap. 

The 23-year-old gave some love to Indiana in the song and shouted out his new teammate Kemba Walker. Unfortunately, Stephenson failed to mention LeBron James or the ear-blowing incident.

Warning: Song is NSFW.

Looks like the Hornets can always draw upon their new 2-guard if they’re in need of halftime entertainment.

Kevin Durant Shows What It Takes to ‘Be the Baddest’ in New Foot Locker Ad

Kevin Durant‘s shoe endorsement future is currently up in the air, but for now, he is still with Nike. That means that he is still “The Baddest.”

The Oklahoma City Thunder superstar showed what it takes to be “The Baddest” in this new Foot Locker ad.

As ESPN’s Royce Young tweeted earlier this month, Durant is currently negotiating with both Nike and Under Armour. If he ends up switching companies, this commercial could be his last with Nike.

Reddit Survey Shows Which College Basketball Teams Are Most Hated in Each State

It’s probably easy to guess which college basketball programs are the most hated around the United States, but thanks to one Redditor, we are able to get a better idea of which teams are the most hated based on a state-by-state breakdown.

We have already seen which college football teams (Note: Links to the lists of the most hated teams of the NFL, MLB, and NBA are also included in that article) are the most hated around the country. Now, we have a look at which college basketball programs are the most hated.

Off the top of your head, you could probably guess that Duke and Kentucky would be the leading vote-getters. After that, there are a lot of mixed results around the country.

It’s no surprise that Kansas is the most disliked team in Big 12 country. The Jayhawks’ dominance of the conference in recent years has many Big 12 fans frustrated.

There weren’t too many surprises from the results. The traditional powers received a lot of hate, and most states went with their regional rivals. However, it’s curious as to why the state of Wyoming hates Ohio State the most. Could it be because Wyoming fans are still salty over the fact that the Buckeyes beat the Cowboys back in the 1986 National Invitation Tournament final?
