Is Shantel Jackson Marrying Floyd Mayweather For His Money?

Is Shantel Jackson Marrying Floyd Mayweather For His Money?

Did Miss Jackson score a huge payday with Floyd Mayweather or simply good old fashion love?

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: If love looks like this, I'm in love.

Floyd Mayweather takes on Miguel Cotto this May 5. This made us take a closer look at Mayweather's luck with the ladies. Is he being played out of the ring?

Shantel Jackson and Floyd Mayweather only dated a couple of months before Mayweather popped he question. 50 Cent broke the news on his twitter talking about how Mayweather had asked him to be his best man. Taking one look at this model turned boxing inspiration, it's easy to see what Floyd's initial motivations must have been. Yet after their initial fast engagement, the couple has slowed down and taken their time. They've actually now been dating for over 5 years.

Some initially believed Miss Jackson was only into Mayweather for his millions, but  5 years later that's a tough sell fo me. This might just be a couple that simply has the money, the looks, and thel ove.

Larry Brown Mocks Allen Iverson

Larry Brown mocks AI in his SMU Press Conference.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: What goes around comes around.

Larry Brown is the new head coach of the SMU basketball program. In his press conference coach Brown couldn't help but mock his former player, Allen Iverson and his now legendary rant about practices versus games. Apparently, coach Brown loves pracitice more. 

Coach Brown is the only coach to win both NCAA and NBA championships and has already been inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. If anyone can take the SMU basetball program to new heights it's Brown and his now famous love of practice. With Iverson unemployed, broke, and scratching his head at how he managed to blow $200 million dollars in just a couple years, Coach Brown's jab seems almost too easy.

Here is the now infamous Allen Iverson rant. Everyone on the planet has already watched this video 10 times, but it's still hilarious.

High School Phenom Destroys Backboard

High School Phenom Destroys Backboard

Cliff Alexander shatters his second backboard and he's only a sophomore in high school.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Can you say recruiting war?

 

Curie High's Cliff Alexander is one of the best high school sophomores in the nation and only improving his standing as a dominant post man with monster dunks like the ones seen above in his highlight reel. Alexander is a product of Chicago hoops and currently ranked as one of the top 10 sophomores in the nation. 

The latest hoop victim to his frocious dunks crumbled in The Fieldhouse in Merrilville, Indiana. This was the destination of the AAU tournament where his D-Rose squad was competing. Although Alexander admits he had no idea the backboard was going to break, it made him feel great. If the smile on his face is any indication of his intentions for future backboards throughout the nation, we haven't seen our last Cliff Alexander victim. 

Link to video of the backboard Alexander destroyed this week.

Michael Jordan Buys $12.4 Million Home in Golf Development


Oh, to be the G.O.A.T. With enough money in the bank that his son can burn through $50K in one day in Vegas without flinching, it's not particularly surprising to see Mike drop a huge wad of cash on property. This time, it's being reported that Michael Jordan has spent some $12,400,000 on a new house situated in a super-exclusive golf development owned by Jack Nicklaus.

Even with waterfront homes still available for sale, Money opted for something a little more secluded, copping what is believed to be the most expensive spot in the development without direct access to the water. The property also includes a guard house, a guest house and a pool house, all of which is spread over a sprawling 28,000 square feet in sunny Jupiter, Florida. While Jordan's initial financial commitment totals $12.4 million ($4.8 million for the land and a further $7.6 million for the construction), it's expected that he'll have ploughed a cool $20 million into the home when all is said and done.

If Mike's looking for some competition on the links, he may ring the doorbell of neighbor and friend Tiger Woods, who snapped up three adjacent properties on the development to create his own megahome.

Kobe Bryant Makes Cameo in Call of Duty: Black Ops Commercial

As one of the most recognizable athletes on the planet, KB24 has a habit of popping up here, there and everywhere. Still, I can't have been the only one who was surprised to see Kobe Bryant make a cameo in the new Call of Duty: Black Ops commercial. In the one-minute TV spot Kobe appears for just a few seconds, wielding a heavy-duty firearm in the middle of a simulated combat situation alongside various other civilians.

Michael Jordan’s Son Blows $50K in One Day in Vegas

While the tweet disappeared fairly quickly, it was online long enough for us to get a little insight to the life of Michael Jordan's son. Marcus Jordan, a 6'3" guard for the University of Central Florida, may not have inherited his father's otherworldly talents, but the ability to burn through stacks of cash in Sin City certainly seems to be genetic. A tweet recently posted by the twenty-year-old Son of G.O.A.T. revealed that he dropped a cool $35K in a Vegas nightclub called Haze, and a total $50K over the course of the day. Here's a screenshot of the tweet:

Did Shaq Propose to Hoopz?

If you're horribly confused by the title of this piece, you're not alone. For those not in the know, the "Hoopz" in question is a young lady by the name of Nicole Alexander. If that doesn't ring any bells, you may wish to cast your mind back to a little show called The Flavor of Love in which everyone's favorite viking-helmet-wearing former Public Enemy hypeman Flavor Flav looked for love. Ms. Alexander managed to beat out nineteen other hopefuls in the first season of the show, although surprisingly she and Flav did not end up living happily ever after.
