Ron Artest’s New ‘Do

It has long been thought that the only player who could challenge Ron Artest's craziness was former NBA player Dennis Rodman. Artest has finally taken the final step to emulating The Worm. We told you yesterday that he was dying it, but here's the finished product.

Shaq Blew $200,000 Gambling

 Somebody gave a video camera to music producer/freelance leprechaun Jermaine Dupri, and the handsome little guy used it to record a series of video segments detailing his post-Janet Jackson existence as a dude with a decent amount of money.  Naturally, his baller lifestyle took him to All-Star Weekend 2010 in Dallas, where he ran into the inimitable Shaquille O'Neal.  As always, the big guy only needed a chance to talk and entertainment flowed forth from his general direction.  If you want to skip ahead, the big guy shows up a little after the 3:20 mark.

In the Paint: Tattoos of the NBA and the Stories Behind Them

Ten years ago, Dennis Rodman was the only NBA player with tattoos worth mentioning and back then he was considered a freak. Now around 70% of the league is "tatted out." The game is played so fast that it’s hard to tell what even the most obvious tattoos actually are. And some of the most interesting ones are hidden behind jerseys or under socks. Allen Iverson has more than two dozen tattoos — some you can see, some you can’t. Some are obvious, like his nickname, "the answer," and some are cryptic like "Jewelz," or "NBN." What’s on Stephon Marbury’s forearm? What’s covering Cherokee Parks’ entire body? In the Paint takes you in the locker room and as close as you can get to the tattoos and the stories of the NBA.

Get under the skin of your favorite NBA players including:
— Doug Christie
— Penny Hardaway
— Mateen Cleaves
— Antonio Daniels
— Corey Maggette
— Moochie Norris
— Karl Malone
— Jalen Rose
— Quentin Richardson
— Sean Rooks
— Lorenzen Wright
— Eric Williams

LeBron James, Fan of Eminem

Last night's game showed off not only LeBron James' game, but also his close knowledge of Eminem lyrics.  Check out the clip below to see LeBron rap along to Eminem's verse on "Forever".

For anyone who watches MTV (and apparently some still do), it would come as no surprise that LBJ knew Em's verse word-for-word.

Dwight Howard Impersonates Charles Barkley on TNT

Dwight Howard may have come under fire lately for his inconsistent production, but the former Sprite Slam Dunk champion obviously hasn't lost his sense of humour.  Prompted by Ernie Johnson, D12 happily breaks out his Charles Barkley impersonation to the amusement of the TNT crew.  Check out the clip below and let us know if you think Dwight Howard's Charles Barkley impersonation hit the target or if, like Howard's face-up game, it needs a little work.
