WAG Of The Day: Which Clipper Dates Miss Maserati?

Blake Griffin's crazy hops aren't the only thing we should be jealous of.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Is Sabrina Maserati the hottest girlfriend in the NBA?

Blake was recently seen playing kissy face with model Sabrina Maserati. She not only has the coolest name for a girlfriend ever, she's also ridunkulously hot. Maserati was signed to Wilhelmina Modeling Agency in Miami where she was born and raised. She then attented Florida Atlantic University and was a former Orlando Magic dancer. How did Dwight Howard let her slip by? You're slipping Dwight. Her new job is apparently for Republic Records where she is a "Label Marketing Representative." I don't know what aspiring bands she is scouting, but heads up Maserati I play a mean air guitar.

Photo Bomb of the Day: Justin Beiber Photo Bombs Floyd Mayweather

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: One of these hard core rappers / athletes doesn't belong.

How on earth did Beiber get himself into this photo. It's hard to believe these are his 3 closest friends. I mean really, is he trying to build up his street cred or something. Maybe Lil Wayne just thought it was a cute little white girl and pulled her in for the photo? Anyway you cut it, weird.

WAG of the Day: Hayden Panettiere Hoops In a Bikini.

Technically, she's not dating a basketball player. She's dating a football player. Yet, the fact that these pics are of her playing bball, we thought we could make an exception and I don't think anyone will object.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Ok, if we're playing a game I get to mark Hayden.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not exaclty sure what this has to do with celebrity gossip. Hayden is playing with Scott McKnight who was waived by the New York Jets. I'll also be the first to admit that I don't really care. She's holding a basketball and looking amazing. That's about all the qualification I need. Haden Panettiere has a thing for basketball and HoopsVibe has a thing for her. You go Hayden, shoot that trick shot all day long. We'll chase the ball down for ya.

WAG of The Day: DeJuan Blair’s Girlfriend

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Back Shot Queen on top of her game.

After being introduced by mutual friends Ashley Logan and DeJuan Blair hit it off and started dating. Her nickname is The Back Shot Queen and I think we can all see how she earned that. Logan is a former video vixen having starred in rap videos from G-Unite, Flo-Rida, and Twista. Now she's transitioned to the NBA and posting up deep in the heart of Texas.

Take a Supermodel to Work: Thunder and Kate Upton Collide

Supermodel Kate Upton interns with the Oklahoma Thunder. This is funny stuff.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Kate Upton can intern at HoopsVibe any time.

This speaks to all that is good when comedy meets sports meets supermodel. Don't worry loyal HoopVibe fans out there, we've already applied for her followup internship. It would be tough to top this one though. Durant and Harden aren't bad in the vidoe either.

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.

Could RG3 Do Better?

Could RG3 Do Better?

Robert Griffin III is engaged to Rebecca Liddicoat, but could he do better?

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: She's aight, but not really all that.

Now that it's official that Robert Griffin III went 2nd in the draft to the Washington Redskins and is going to be worth millions, should he be upgrading his girl? We're not saying Rebecca Liddicoat is bad. She's cute. She seems nice. Heck, she's got a yellow dress and who doesn't love a yellow dress.
 
Lets be real. RG3 has been stuck out at Baylor where we can only guess the pickings are slim as far as ladies are concerned. Now that he's a big time NFL star his options are significantly greater. First of all, he's no longer stuck with Baylor chicks. Secondly, cute is ok, but who doesn't want to have a dime on their arm? Time will tell if these two love birds hop that broom.

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.

Vanessa Williams Molested by a Woman

Vanessa Williams Molested by a Woman

Vanessa Williams recounts molestation as a child by an 18-year old girl, her teenage abortion, and the nude girl-on-girl photo that ended her Miss America reign.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Books got to sell.

Vanessa Wiliams sets the record straight in her new tell-all book entitled "You Have No Idea." Apparently, we had no idea because this books spills the beans on a whole lot of juicy stuff. Williams appeared on the "Pierce Morgan Show" over the weeked to promote her new book and discuss some of the scandals that have rocked her life. 

 

In the interview she goes on to reveal she was pregnant both times she got married and has been in love 4 times in her life. Unfortunately she has no one in her life at the moment and so "nothing to be naughty about," but says the two biggest traits she looks for in a man are that he is available to her and not afraid of her accomplishments. With expectations set this low I'm sure Williams can expect an onslaught of dating invitations from our HoopsVibe readers.

Williams speaks candidly about how a family friend molested her on a vacation as a child. This was not a creepy old man molesting her, but a young 18-year old woman who woke Vanessa in her sleep to go down on her. Vanessa states how she knew it was wrong, but didn't say anything at the time and only reflected on it later in college that she had been taken advantage of.

HoopsVibe’s BotM for June: Seneca Shahara Brand

It's time for another Babe of the Month, and June's pick is Seneca Shahara Brand, wife of 76ers forward Elton Brand. Seneca Shahara Brand met her future husband as a student of Duke University when he visited the campus on a recruiting trip. He proposed to Seneca during a beach picnic in Los Cabos, Mexico by having a plane fly overheard with a banner reading "WILL YOU MARRY ME SENECA?". In 2006 she appeared as "Nurse #2" in the Christian Bale movie Rescue Dawn
