NBA Commish, Jim Rome Get Heated Over Draft Lottery

Jim Rome has had some testy exchanges in the past — remember ‘Chris Everett’ and the flipped table? — but this one with NBA commissioner David Stern is probably his best.

Rome asks Stern if the NBA draft lottery is fixed, and it goes haywire from there. Stern asks if Rome “still beats his wife” and also tells him that he has to go because he has to call someone more important — Stephen A. Smith.

Twitter Fail: Michael Jordan’s Son’s Message to Porn Star

You may recall that Marcus Jordan, son of all-time NBA great Michael Jordan, got himself into a bit of trouble when he tweeted out info and pics about how he was dropping thousands of dollars in Las Vegas and drinking it up — at the age of 19.

Jordan is back for another Twitter fail, this time sending a tweet to pornstar Rachel Roxxx that was meant to be a direct message.

Whoops. Now the whole world knows that you are paying a pornstar for sex, at least indirectly. Dad will be so proud!
