Colin Cowherd is very outspoken and took his chance to jump on the “I hate Chad Johnson bandwagon”. Colin has never been a ochocinco fan and has told anyone who would listen. Cowherd took to the airwaves to slam Johnson over his recent arrest and financial problems. The ESPN host even boasted about refusing to work with Johnson on Sports Nation.[espn]
Spike lee joined ESPN First Take to discuss the Knicks’ playoff loss and how he’s recovering. The long time Knicks’ fan was so depressed he called friend Denzel Washington for comfort. Spike was in such a slump he chose not to attend the President Obama commencement speech at his alma mater Morehouse College. [via. espn]
A Broward County judge was not in the mood to hear Chad Johnson’s excuses. After turning himself in, Johnson appeared in front of the judge for a probation violation. The judge pressed Johnson about why he failed to complete the required domestic violence classes. Both Chad and his attorney did not give clear answers why the classes were not finished and the judge wasn’t happy. Obviously the Judge was not impressed by ochocinco and gave him an earful.[via.tmz]

Adrien Broner can’t get enough of himself on YouTube. Whether he is promoting his show “About Billions” or posting 3 on 3 pick up games to twitter he is defiantly into self promotion. While training for his up coming fight against Paulie Malignaggi the champ took time to play Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson in 3 on 3. Broner’s team beat Lawson’s with Adrien scoring the winning basket. As someone who is currently on a NBA roster who just lost in the playoff’s, Lawson should be ashamed of himself loosing 21-14. Ty should refer to the attached video of Kyrie Irving “Getting Buckets” in a recent pick up game. When asked about it on twitter Lawson gave a lame response. [via.@adrienbroner]

Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel hit batting practice before a recent San Diego Padres game. The Texas A&M QB stepped to the plate and smashed out a home run. Manziel has been on a world tour and is focused on everything except football. With all this non- football attention it will be interesting to see how well the “Aggies” do this season.

Stephen A. Smith co-host of ESPN’s First Take is taking the Knicks’ loss to heart. Smith tweeted: “I’m DEPRESSED right now, Ladies and Gentlemen. Not going to lie. Can’t sleep. Won’t eat. Don’t wanna work! But I’ll be on FIRST TAKE in AM.” Stephen A. followed up with a second tweed asking to be left alone. Although, I’m sure the ESPN personality is joking and is not really depressed, “Quite Frankly” the Knicks’ loosing shouldn’t have been a surprise. The Pacers are a better team and have a new theme song from their biggest home town fan, comedian Mike Epps . [ftw]
