Likely saviour of the Sacramento Kings billionaire Vivek Ranadivé who currently owns a piece of the Warriors. Is a huge basketball fan and so is his daughter Anjali Dea who made a remix of Drake “Started From the Bottom” about her dads team. Let’s go ahead and expect a re-remix of a Kings version of this song in the near future once Ranadivé sells his stake in the Warriors in order to official buy the Kings.

Clearly this kids parents have nailed this parenting thing. BIRDMAN, BIRDMAN.
Seeing just one of Phil Jackson‘s championship rings is okay, but seeing all 13 of them comprised of two as a player with the Knicks, six as the coach of the Bulls and five as the head coach of the Lakers. Well, that’s just down right cool. It’s always a good day when the Zen Master is on Twitter.
The crazy lady who gave Joakim Noah a single freedom rocket during Game 2 in Miami, as he headed to the locker room after being ejected. Has a crazy backstory that should be some kinda Michael Bay movie. Here are five quick facts about Filomena Tobias, the most notorious Miami Heat fan of all-time.
1. She is the widow of former CNBC commentator Seth Tobias
“The woman whose one-finger salute has become an Internet sensation overnight is Filomena Tobias, the widow of former CNBC commentator and financial wizard Seth Tobias, said Filomena Tobias’ daughter, Victoria Racanati” – Sun Sentinel
2. She once tried to suck cocaine out of her husbands nose — at a dinner party — in public
“Tobias had promised Phyllis that he would stop using cocaine, but she didn’t believe him. In the fall of 2005, the couple was having dinner at Bice, a Palm Beach restaurant, with six other people. Just after sitting down, Phyllis jumped from her seat and placed her lips over Tobias’s nose and began sucking. She was searching for cocaine residue.” - New York Times
3. Her former brother in law thinks she has something to do with her husbands death
“[Tobias'] brothers, Samuel, Spence, Scott and Joshua, claim that Filomena Tobias drugged her husband and lured him into the pool, where he drowned. A former assistant to Seth Tobias has told the police that Filomena Tobias confessed to him that she had cajoled her husband, who was on a cocaine binge, into the water, promising him sex with a male go-go dancer know as “Tiger.” A lawyer for Filomena Tobias has called the claims outrageous.” – New York Times
4. She loves the Miami Heat
Filomena Tobias is a Heat season ticket holder whose family attends every game. - Sun Sentinel
5. Her third husband represented her in court in the death surrounding her second husband
Filomena’s third husband, divorce lawyer Jay Jacknin, served as one of her lawyers in the cases surrounding Seth Tobias’ death, and offered this description: “She had a great body. Women love her. Men find her fascinating. I just couldn’t afford her.” – Yahoo!
Bonus: Her daughter, upon seeing her mother flipping the bird on TV said: “I have to stay, she still looks really hot.” - Sun Sentinel
Well, this Miami Heat fan certainly seems like a nice lady. You can pay for school but you can’t buy class lady.
So yeah, this billboard of Joakim Noah using an extinguisher to cool LeBron James is a real thing. And it’s probably the best thing that’s ever happened in fire protection marketing and Chicago Bulls indirect advertising history. Congratulations to CommandSign for designing this masterpiece. You guys did it!
The same Hanson brothers group responsible for creating MMMBop in the late 90′s wrote this years OKC Thunder rally song.
“There is something special about the Thunder and the connection they have with this state and the fans,” singer Taylor Hanson, 30, said. ”That’s what you see with the Flaming Lips and Hanson doing music that works with the team. There is a organic connection and pride that the state has. It’s excitement to have a team that is a contender against the best teams around. That’s such a great thing to be able to root for and if you can have your music connect the dots.”
From Tulsa, Isaac, Taylor, and Zac are huge Thunder fans! Which makes me think they might be kinda cool after all. Maybe.
