The final event will take place on Sunday at MSG, where there will be a double header between the USA and France followed by China versus Puerto Rico. What do you think about the cartoon players that have been used for promotion? #ILoveBasketball

Jamie Dimon’s Chicago Home 07/23/2010

25 East Banks Street Chicago, Illinois 60610. That is the address of where Jamie Dimon, the CEO of monster bank JP Morgan, resides when he is not busy handling business in NYC. So you ever wonder how the man spends his $17 million in stock and options? This may be a good guide to where a small portion of it goes. He bought the home in 2000 for $4.68 million and originally put it on the market several years ago for $13.5 million. It was at $10.5 million when we checked it out last year but had a price cut earlier this year to $9.5 million, according to Sotheby’s. The only property listed for more in the Gold Coast area is Bill Wrigley Jr.’s penthouse space. The eight-bedroom home was built in 1870 but has been lavishly adapted for the modern executive. The home is spread out over four stories and includes a whopping 900-square-foot rooftop terrace outfitted with ample seating in both sun and shade. There is a second floor master suite, winevault, an elegant gold and eggplant media room and gym decorated with sports memorabilia and crowned with a starry dome. Hit more for additional pictures and a full blown tour of hands down the hottest and finest piece of real estate within the Chicago area. (more…)

This transformation commercial is super dope. Apparently, the snowboarding mogul Shaun White will be releasing his own skateboarding line. Items include shoes, shirts, shorts and other accessories. *UPDATE* after seeing the google searches and  the results people wanted to know what song was being played in the background of this video. The answer is a band called The Coasters and the song is titled Down In Mexico. Listen and download below! You Can #ThankMeNow.

Hahahah, this skit was amazing. Paul Rudd impersonated Jim Grey, while Steve Carell handled LBJ’s script. For all of those who missed the ESPSYs a few nights back, this is when it was aired. Personally, I thought Seth Myers did a great job hosting the award show. Between ripping on Tebow and Farve, Myers got the best of just about everybody including Shockey. Conclusively, Steve had a good run with Chili’s, but tonight it is just right at Outback Steakhouse. The only part I think they messed up on was that Steve Carell wasn’t rocking the neck beard as Lebron was. #BloomingOnion.

Alright haters. The KING has made his deicsion and it is to play with the Miami Heat, along with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. There is no denying it is impressive to see three stars drop their egos, sacrifice maximum money and be willing to share the basketball in order to win championships. I am ashamed and appalled for the Clevland fans for the way they reacted and burning his jersey. Yes he did turn his back on them, but for all that he has done for that organization his jersey should be retired. 28 ppg, 7 reb and 7 ass in 7 seasons??? That is unheard of!!! Well, I believe myself and the rest of the world is happy this Lebronathon is finally over and the next season in the NBA shall reveal a whole lot.

LA Lakers Win 16th NBA Championship 06/18/2010

Congratulations to the Lakeshow on winning there 16th championship in franchise history. What was an ugly game up until the final minute and a half, turned out to be quite the thriller. The Lakers rallied back from a 13 point deficit after shooting a pitiful 27% in the first half. Kobe was not feeling it tonight, to say the least, therefore it was the supporting role that got it done tonight. Despite his 6-24 shooting, the Black Mamba pulled down 15 rebounds and distributed the ball well when the Celtics attempted to double and triple team him. I tip my hat to Queensbridge’s finest for the outstanding performance both offensively and defensively in the game tonight. Ironic how the man who got his first championship was the X factor in the game, let alone 6 years ago being suspended 73 games for The Malace At The Palace. It was an epic seven game series in which the NBA or the fans can ask for much more.

With the release of his new album Thank Me Later set to be released this Tuesday, Drake is the feature of a detailed article in the New York Times article about his past and recent successes. The writer gives quite a bit of props to Drake about his songwriting and flow.

“I believe in myself, in my presence, enough that I don’t feel small in Jay’s presence. I don’t feel small in Wayne’s presence.”  BOSS

It’s definitely an entertaining read… Enjoy

Scott Mescudi was arrested Friday on charges of felony criminal mischief and criminal possession of a controlled substance, a spokesman for the New York Police Department said. The lonely stoner allegedly destroyed his girlfriends phone and broke her apartment door off its hinges, according toTMZ, which first reported the news. When the PO9 was snooping around the crime scene they found a glass bottle of a controlled substance. I guess the Kid is having more trouble finding How To Make It In America than everybody thought…

Now that the Theophilus London/Mickey Factz show is in the past, its time to get back on our grind.  Special thanks to MaxB, we got Theo to leak us a track of his upcoming mixtape I Want You due to be released April 28th (CHECK OUT THE INTERVIEW!!!).  Below, you can hear/download that song called “Oops”, plus another track off I Want You called “Accept The New” which I’ve been loving.

Im also throwing in three more tracks that have have been released recently.  The first is the new LCD Soundsystem single off their upcoming album This Is Happening.  I’m a huge fan of the steady, head nodding piano/drum beat, and the synths add in a nice relaxing element.  The entire album is streaming here.  The next song just got leaked today and it’s off The National‘s upcoming album High Violet.  The song, called “Afraid of Everyone,” is a dark, almost spooky ballad that erupts with a National-esque drum beat and intense lyrics over some background strings.  It’s a dirrrty track, take a listen.  The last song I’m including is a remix of the song “We Are The People” by Empire Of The Sun.  It’s a classic electro jam, but I find this remix to be a little more accessible.  It’s easy listening with a little Daft Punky flavor…  Hit the jump for streams and downloads of all 5 tracks: (more…)

The new Tiger Woods brand began today as Nike aired the first commercial of Tiger since the scandal. The commercial is the voice of Earl Woods, Tiger’s deceased father questioning his son’s actions as Tiger solemnly stares into the camera. Nike would not discuss the context of Earl Wood’s comments but this is some pretty heavy shit for a Nike ad. To read the full quote from Earl, hit more. (more…)

2010 Final Four Is Set 03/28/2010

While most people’s brackets are in shambles, it is hard to stay mad when we have been blessed with the excitement that March Madness has brought us this year. Michigan State, Butler, West Virginia and Duke have all punched tickets to play in next week’s Final Four in Indianapolis. No doubt that hindsight is 20/20 but it is now pretty easy to see why these four teams reached the Final Four. Michigan State made it to the finals last year with much of the same team still intact and in the last 12 years, Tom Izzo has made a remarkable six Final Fours. Butler had a 20 game win streak entering the tournament and has not lost a game since December. West Virginia was ranked #5 in the country, won the Big East conference tournament (arguably the toughest conference tournament) and has a star in Da’Sean Butler who is capable of single-handedly carrying his team. Duke has three experienced players who average more then 17 points per game and a coach who boasts 11 Final Four appearances. To read more about my predictions for next week’s games and to see highlights of all the games from the Elite 8, click more. (more…)

A quick note for all of our loyal readers. The best time of the year has arrived, although a tad late, in which we take a break from our busy lives to enjoy life itself in the most relaxing manner possible.  TRJ and myself are departing to Acapulco, Mexico in a matter of hours and I thought it would only be appropriate to notify all of you, so when your wondering where all the new music releases are you will understand why it is not up. Our fellow bloggers MaxB & ZG are currently in two of Americas sin cities being Miami and Las Vegas. We will be back in a week to catch up on all that we missed.

MGMT has released its new album Celebration via an online stream on their website.  They say on their site that the album leaked and they wanted you to hear it from them first.  Now, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that this album is fucking trash.  Sorry MGMT, but this new shit simply sucks the D.  None of it is catchy, and none of it has any solid hooks.  You can judge for yourself by clicking here.

In unrelated news,  two new songs are available as a stream or pay-to-download off Broken Social Scene‘s hyped up Forgiveness Rock Record which I posted about here and here.  The two new songs are equally as good as the first single they released called “World Sick.”  I highly recommend checking these two new tracks out by clicking here

HBO’s drama series, The Wire is arguably one of the greatest dramatic television shows ever. Thankfully, creator David Simon and company are back at it with their newest drama show titled Treme. Treme explores the lives of several struggling musicians and other New Orleans locals in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The show is titled Treme because it tries to capture and envision the working class neighborhood in the Mid-City district area of New Orleans in which citizens such as musicians, chefs and other residents try to rebuild their lives. The show will be an hour long each week beginning with an 80-minute pilot airing Sunday, April 11, 2010. The cast will star Steve Zahn, Oscar-nominated actress Melissa Leo, John Goodman and Wendell Pierce AKA “Bunk,” the hilarious and cynical detective from The Wire. To see a trailer for Treme, hit more. (more…)

Today is like Christmas for any college basketball fan. The brackets are printable! The committee has announced the field of 65 with Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse and Duke claiming the #1 seeds. It’s now time for the best sporting event of the year to begin and the millions of brackets to be filled out. This year’s field seems to be more “open” than in recent years as no team appears to be the clear cut winner leading me to expect more upsets this year than in previous years. Filling out a bracket this year has been difficult and left me with a great feeling of uncertainty, a feeling I haven’t experienced in years past. On a side note, yesterday, I stumbled upon a sick new website that allows users to click their favorite teams and see their greatest NCAA tournament moments in recent years. Embrace the madness!

Jay Baruchel, maybe better known as the kid from Knocked Up who got pink eye after Jonah Hill farted on his pillow, is starring in a comedic film that hits theaters this weekend. Although not a Judd Apatow film, She’s Out Of My League looks pretty funny and should put Baruchel on the map for future comedies. Hit the jump to read a synopsis and see the trailer. (more…)

Cover art for the new MGMT album Congratulations

MGMT just released the first single off their new album Celebration this morning.  It’s not like any MGMT we’ve ever heard.  There are about 8 different sections and there is no consistent head-nodding hook that we know them best for.  It’s got a modest mousey-kind of feel.  The second newbee is a track from a brand new band that nobody even knew existed until this track started circulating on blogs this week.  The group called Cults doesn’t even have a myspace and their practically non-googlable.  I think it’s super catchy with great vibes, have a listen.  The third track is a remix I recently stumbled upon remixing the xx with Biggie and Tupac.  Shits hot.  Hit the jump to hear em.
