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.

Bleeding Edge TV 489: Fiesta Movement Pro Wrestling 101

Okay, if you don't know, I used to be a pro wrestler. That's right, I'd put my tights on every week, step through the curtain, and enter a 20 x 20 wrestling ring to entertain a crowd of people, and I loved it. That was a long time ago, and now I bring you the hottest news in the consumer electronics world, as you know.

However, now that I am a Ford #FiestaMovement agent, you should expect to see something a bit more unique here on my channel each month. I'll be doing some pretty unique missions as part of the Fiesta Movement, using the Fiesta ST that was given to me for the duration of the Movement to bring you some cool stuff. This month? I'm bringing you into the world of professional wrestling as part of the June #Fitness theme.

Why pro wrestling? Well, I didn't want another agent to grab this mission and turn it into a comedy act! I saw this as an opportunity to educate the masses about this truly unique artform. I head to the Buddy Wayne pro wrestling training facility to chat about what it takes to become a professional wrestler. Buddy should know. After all, at just 5' 6", he has made a career in the land of the giants, having wrestling for both WWE (formerly WWF or the World Wrestling Federation) and WCW (World Championship Wrestling.) In wrestling, you only look as good as your opponent allows you to look, and Buddy was able to make his opponents look great for 12 years.

Britney Spears Fell for David with Golf

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Dating,

Britney Spears and David LucadoBritney Spears fell for her new boyfriend when he taught her how to play golf.

The "Piece of Me" hitmaker - who split from her fiance Jason Trawick in January - is currently dating David "Lucky" Lucado after being set up by her father Jamie Spears and the pair instantly clicked as he gave her a personal lesson in the putting sport.

"They first met when Lucky gave her a golf lesson. They totally hit it off which I'm not surprised by, everyone loves him. He got her number and asked her on a date and the rest is history. He treats her like any other person and is really special. As corny as it sounds he really cares and is such a good person," David's friend Caroline Harrison told Star magazine.

While Britney is smitten with her new man, her father, who is co-conservator of her affairs, initially had him undergo a background check and sign a non-disclosure contract as a matter of precaution. "Before David started spending time with Brit, he had to undergo a background check, and sign a confidentiality agreement, all arranged by Papa Spears. David had absolutely no problem with it, and completely understood why it was being done," a source said.

David Beckham Buying US Soccer Team

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports,

David BeckhamDavid Beckham is "close to" buying a US soccer team.

The sportsman recently quit Los Angeles Galaxy to focus on "one last challenge" and is thought to be planning to play in Europe but leaving the club doesn't mean he is completely bowing out of the game in America.

Speaking to Ryan Seacrest on Kiis FM, he said, "Yes. That will obviously comes into play now. It only came into play once I finished playing here. I'm excited about that. My commitment when I came here six years ago was to take this league to another level, and my commitment stays the same. I might not be playing here but I will become a owner of a franchise and it's something that I'm excited about. We're close to a decision on that, but I can't say it right now. I'm close to a decision on that!"

Announcing the end of his contract with LA Galaxy recently, David spoke about his ownership ambitions.


David Beckham to Host Sports Talk Show

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports, Talk Shows, FOX, Gossip, Rumors,

David BeckhamDavid Beckham is being inundated with offers to host his own talk show.

The 37-year-old footballer - whose rolling one year contract with Los Angeles Galaxy is up for renewal in December - has reportedly been offered the chance to front his own sports show by Time Warner Cable. A source told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper, "We want David on board whether or not he continues to play for the Galaxy. We are on our way to becoming the world's biggest sportscaster and he is a key part of our future."

The insider said that the US-based company has offered the midfielder a "multi-million" contract and is "desperate" to secure the father-of-four to host a twice-weekly show on its new sports network. The proposed format would see David interview his fellow athletes, discuss tactics and give him "free reign" to cover any sports of his choice.

But rivals FOX are said to be hashing out a massive counter offer in a desperate bid to lure the successful British star to its network and he is considering his options after being advised to cash-in on his celebrity status.

Helena Bonham Carter ‘Sent Off’ by Tim

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Sports,

Tim Burton and Helena Bonham CarterHelena Bonham Carter gets "sent off" by partner Tim Burton if he disapproves of her behavior.

The Dark Shadows actress says the filmmaker - with whom she has two children, Billy, eight, and four-year-old Nell - is obsessed with soccer and mimics the disciplinary process used in the game to reprimand her: "He's become a real soccer fanatic, so he has yellow cards and red cards. I'm always being sent off. It's pretty playful but that's good for me. We do have a laugh!" Helena - who lives in London with Tim and their kids - went on to explain she receives yellow card warnings for things such as twitching eyebrows and moving hands.

In Dark Shadows - a comedy vampire film directed by Tim - Helena plays psychotherapist Dr. Julia Hoffman and based her research for the role on her mother, who held a similar profession. However, the 45-year-old star admits she used to "resent" her parent's job because she always took a professional stance to her daughter's moods when she was younger.

Acura, Cadillac, Honda, and Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial sneak peeks

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Transportation, Videos,

It’s that time of the year where we can freely get down on junk food, trash talk, and look forward to the commercials just as much as the big game. We're talking about the Super Bowl (oh, and don't forget to enter our Big Game Giveaway!) Each year millions upon millions are dumped on commercials for mere marketing purposes.

Without a doubt, Volkswagen had one of the most successful commercials last year (see video after the jump to jog your memory) and is aiming to repeat its success again this year staying with the Star Wars theme. However, Volkswagen is not the only one fighting for airtime during the big game. Honda, Acura, and Cadillac have aired their Super Bowl commercials early this year and I want to focus your attention on the creativity of the ads.

Manufacturers know that millions will be watching the game on the 5th, and one would think that they would put effort into creating an entertaining commercial. Well one would think, but that’s not always the case. Let’s take a look at the Cadillac ATS spot, above.
