So Long, Donald Sterling! The Los Angeles Clippers Have Been Sold To Steve Ballmer!

| Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersBusiness BlitzBasketballNBA

The Los Angeles Clippers have been SOLD

Goodbye forever, awful Donald Sterling! There’s a new owner in town and he’s totally NOT a racist!

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has officially bought the Los Angeles Clippers, after the sale was held up in court for awhile by Sterling.

The pricetag was steep though, at $2 billion! Basically, he made an offer that they couldn’t refuse!

However, the decision to allow the sale is a tentative ruling by the judge, who will need to issue a final order, and the NBA’s board of governors needs to vote to approve the sale as well.

But from the looks of everything, it’s going to be a-okay!

There’s also the issue of moving the Clippers now. Previously, Ballmer said that Seattle deserves to have a team, but in light of actually getting the Clippers, he’s reiterated that he has no plans to move them!

So, congratulations Clippers fans! Your former sucky owner is gone!

Now THIS is a homecoming fit for a King!

LeBron James was welcomed back to the great state of Ohio this weekend by more than 25,000 fans who evidently have a horrible memory!

Regardless of the fact that King James abandoned the Cleveland Cavaliers back in 2009, we guess these people put back on their #23 jerseys (if they didn't burn them to a crisp 5 years ago) and came out to support their prodigal son.

Fans lined up outside of Akron's InfoCision Stadium and waited over six hours in the summer heat in order to get prime seats to see the man they hope will finally bring their team the championship they’ve longed for.

After a performance from Skylar Grey singing her hit song I'm Coming Home, LeBron made his way onto the stage to a roar from the crowd!

The King spoke to his loyal subjects, saying:

Hot dog down!

The last leg of this weekend’s Hot Dog Derby race in Kansas City featured a photo finish! Not because it was a close race but because one little kid couldn’t stop falling down!

Oh we know we shouldn’t laugh at this but we just cannot help it!

The cute kids dressed up as ballpark franks and ran a lap around Kauffman Stadium but the boy (above) srsly needs a belt because his pants kept falling down! And when you’re running and your pants fall down, YOU fall down.

Poor guy eats it HARD down the home stretch!

Even after a member of the KC Royals grounds team runs over to help him finish, he keeps tripping over his trousers!

Awww!!!

This wiener might not be a winner by racing standards. But he’s won a special place in our hearts!

Press PLAY (below) to see the greatest hot dog race of all time!

Anything Is Possible! Purple Heart Recipient Who Lost Leg Competes In His First Wrestling Match! How'd It Turn Out?!

| Filed under: ZportzInspirationWrestling

chris melendez no leg signs tna wrestling

This is an incredible story!

Sgt. Chris Melendez was one month away from his two-year stint in Iraq being over, when he was hit with an IED explosion, back in 2006.

The blast left him without his left leg, which he saw lying on the battlefield in front of him.

But Chris didn’t let it slow him down, and within 40 days he was walking again, with the help of his prosthesis.

By 2012, Sgt. Melendez was on the way to achieving his new dream of becoming a professional wrestler, and last week that dream came true!

TNA Impact Wrestling signed the 27-year-old to a multi-year deal!

Sarge, as they call him in the locker room made his debut last Tuesday, where he won twice!

And believe it or not, he prefers to fight without the use of his leg! Sgt. Melendez explained:

“I prefer to work with it off because my agility's better, I move a little faster, I'm able to do certain things that I can't do with it on. It's actually a hindrance to have it on.”

This man is the definition of bravery and determination! We’re sure he’ll go far in the world of wrestling!
