NBA 2K14

Earlier today 2K Sports released the new trailer for NBA 2K14, giving a look at a few of the 3,000 new animations, moves, and dribbling techniques you can expect from the game. LeBron James is the cover athlete for this year, and he also happens to be the soundtrack curator for the game as well. The trailer consists of Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC game footage (all of which will be released on October 1,) a disappointment to those who were hoping for a glimpse of Xbox One and Playstation 4 gameplay footage, but 2K Games says that's coming soon in a separate trailer. You can pre-order NBA 2K14 now, and be sure to check out the trailer after the jump.

Lamar Odom Leaves Dallas Mavericks

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports, Television,

Lamar OdomKhloe Kardashian's husband Lamar Odom has left the Dallas Mavericks.

The 32-year-old basketball player - who arrived from the Los Angeles Lakers in December - has come under fire from supporters for a number of poor performances this season, which insiders believe are down to the pressure of his celebrity lifestyle and being in front of the cameras on reality TV show Khloe and Lamar.

"When he wasn't playing well, it meant he looked bad. And when you have a show about your life, when you are off-court, you have to deal with the producers asking all those questions. He had a horrible summer, but ... he was more concerned about the cameras and how he looked," an NBA source told the New York Post.

"The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it's in the best interest of both parties for me to step away," Lamar - who took a leave of absence in February after his father fell ill - confirmed in a statement.

Kim Kardashian to divorce Kris Humphries

Kim Kardashian divorce

Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce today, Halloween 2011, after just 72 days of marriage. The 31-year-old reality TV star married basketball star Kris Humphries in a lavish televised ceremony in August but after rampant speculation their relationship was trouble, 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' producer Ryan Seacrest has confirmed a divorce is imminent. He wrote on Twitter: "Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins"

Kim - who attended a Halloween party in New York over the weekend but did not bring Kris along - has reportedly hired divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who has previously represented Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Angelina Jolie and Ryan Reynolds and will cite "irreconcilable differences" in her divorce papers, and is not seeking annulment. Sources close to the pair told website TMZ that their arguments over where to live were responsible for the breakdown of the union, with Kris wanting to live in Minnesota while Kim didn't want to leave Los Angeles. Although this has been a source of tension for some time, they decided to try to figure it out after the wedding because they were so caught up with being in love. Kim has previously revealed her marriage to 26-year-old Kris wasn't ideal because of the publicity surrounding their union and said they were finding it hard to get some alone time. She said: "It's not been ideal because you're newlyweds and you want privacy."

Kim and Kris tied the knot in a fairytale ceremony in front of 440 guests in Montecito, California with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney as matron and maid of honour, and her nephew, 23-month old Mason, as ring bearer.

EndScore Report: LeBron James is Better Than Us

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NBA, Playoffs,

LeBron James is better than usIn this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris speak on the LeBron James situation in which he initmated he was better than us regular folk. Maybe it was just sour grapes on his part after his Miami Heat lost to Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals, but still, LeBron should have some class. I don't know how Dwyane Wade is going to deal with this for several more seasons. Yeesh! Anyway, give it a LISTEN!

EndScore Report: In Your Face Pippen and Goodell

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NBA, News, NFL,

Scottie Pippen says that LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan. Really, Pip?In this edition of "In Your Face," DV and Chris throw down on Scottie Pippen for his remarks last week of LeBron James being better than Michael Jordan. To paraphrase a new movie coming out, six titles is all the argument you need to say that Jordan is the best. Well, on top of everything else, like him transcending the sport of basketball like Babe Ruth for baseball. We also wag our finger at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for taking sides. Sure, he's employed by the owners, but when it comes to settling arguments between them and the players, he should at least try to be neutral to make sure there's football in the fall. LISTEN UP!

Google’s Taking Over TV, Too

It’s official: Google is in charge of the modern world. The Internet giant recently signed a deal which brings together HBO, Netflix, Pandora and the NBA under a new banner: Google TV.

It’s all part of Google’s multimillion-channel TV system, which will launch in the fall. The system runs on Google’s Android OS, making it possible for Web viewers to watch content on their television sets. And next fall, Google’s going to present Google Mind, which allows users to plug their brains directly into their computer systems. (We’re just kidding about that last bit … or, are we?)

NBC Universal, Time Warner and Twitter will also be involved, offering apps which will allow users to access content from their TVs. alone plans to offer 600-plus hours of programming (which just about covers the first two seasons of The Sopranos), and the NBA has created an app which will keep viewers updated on games and scores in real time. Google is hinting that even more news will unfold in the next few weeks.
