Brandon Jennings Gained 25 Pounds Over the Summer

Hosted by: http://www.slamonline.com/nba/brandon-jennings-gained-25-pounds-summer/

Jennings also admits that his first year in Detroit – with averages of 15.5 points on 37.3% shooting, and 7.6 assists – was the worst year of his five-year career, and says he’s ready to help lead a turnaround for the Pistons. Per the Detroit News:

“I’m about 185, 190 on my good days,” said Jennings, noticeably thicker but still wiry.

 

He said (president/head coach Stan Van Gundy) reminds him of his first coach in Milwaukee, Scott Skiles. […] “He’s really big on details and he said you’re gonna have to play defense and give your all, every night,” Jennings said. “He already said it, I’m not expecting you to lock guys up one on one. Guys are just too good. But what we can do is give a good effort and play team defense.”

 

“I’m gonna be honest. It was my worst year,” said Jennings, repeating it for emphasis. “Dealing with all types of things. The fractured jaw, losing weight, not being able to play preseason, missing games. Then getting into a rhythm, then Mo (Cheeks) was fired and I’m back down again. It was just the worst season ever, a roller coaster.”

Giant LeBron James Billboard Could Return to Cleveland

Hosted by: http://www.slamonline.com/nba/giant-lebron-james-billboard-return-cleveland/

According to the Plain Dealer, the newly-proposed mural would depict LeBron and the ever-present Swoosh in front of an adoring crowd of Cavs fans:

Images submitted to the Cleveland City Planning Commission on Tuesday show James with his arms stretched, once again, across the eastern face of the Landmark Office Towers, the Sherwin-Williams headquarters complex at the back of Tower City.

 

The LeBron banner would replace a brightly toned sign depicting Cleveland landmarks and bearing the paint company’s logo.

 

The new image harkens back, of course, to the iconic Nike Inc. banner of James that greeted drivers entering downtown until mid-2010. Crews tore down that display after James announced he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to play for the Miami Heat.

Blake Griffin Performed Standup Comedy at the Laugh Factory

Hosted by: http://www.slamonline.com/nba/blake-griffin-performed-standup-comedy-laugh-factory/

It was part of an ongoing campaign for Vizio, and Griffin read from skits that premiered as ads online this week. Per Fox Sports:

Griffin was the fourth act in a building where the late Robin Williams, Adam Sandler, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, Jimmy Fallon, Ellen DeGeneres and so many others have done their routines.

 

Griffin was well received, even if it was just a small crowd. He wasn’t nervous. […] “No, because I was able to look down and reference and read,” Griffin said. “It’s a little different being on stage like that by yourself.” […] “The first laugh is always key,” Griffin said. “I’ve done some improv stuff. Once you get your first laugh, you’re good. Up until that point it’s a little nerve-racking.”

 

“It’s amazing you can come here and catch an amazing comedian on any random night,” Griffin said. “That’s what’s great about a place like this, being Los Angeles, and going to comedy clubs.”

Hosted by: http://www.slamonline.com/nba/dwight-howard-ran-10-red-lights-license-suspended/

Howard owes the state $285 for having sped through an impressively-dangerous ten red lights during a two-year period.

Per TMZ:

According to official records, the NBA superstar was captured by those red light cameras in Orange County, FL over and over again starting in 2012, when he was busted 9 times in 10 months.

 

Then, after a year-and-a-half without a violation, Howard struck again in 2014 — blowing through another red light on July 1st, his 10th overall infraction.

 

Officials from the Orange County Clerk of Courts tell us Howard’s license can be reinstated if he pays a $285 fine.

Atlanta Hawks to Unveil a Dominique Wilkins Statue

Hosted by: http://www.slamonline.com/nba/atlanta-hawks-unveil-dominique-wilkins-statue/

The Hawks will unveil the sculpture of ‘Nique in March. Wilkins, who works for the team as a vice president and homer TV analyst, ended his Hawks career with the most points in franchise history (23,292), and also ranks second in steals, fourth in rebounds, sixth in blocked shots and seventh in assists. Per the AJC:

A group has contracted Hall of Fame sculptor Brian Hanlon to do the art work many believe long over due. Hanlon worked with Wilkins when he created the bust for his 2006 enshrinement. The sculpture will be unveiled on March 6, the day the Hawks host LeBron James and the Cavaliers.

 

“The first thing that comes to mind is that it immortalizes you,” Wilkins said Tuesday. “There is no better feeling in the world to know that you will be recognized for the rest of your life and even after you are gone it’s still going to be there.

 

“One of most important things, not just for me but for the city of Atlanta, is it’s a sign of appreciation for what they’ve done for me. This city made me who I am.”
