Team USA Just Won Gold In Men's Basketball, And Carmelo Anthony's Reaction Is EVERYTHING!

no title

Yet another sport dominated by the Americans!

Today at the Olympics, the US men's basketball team ran away with the gold medal, enjoying a 30-point win over Serbia and continuing to assert themselves as the best basketball nation in the world (especially after the US women won gold yesterday, too!).

The 96-66 win for the men today might have been a bit anticlimactic, but the most touching, poignant moment of the hoops tournament — and one of the better moments of the entire Olympics — turned out to be star forward Carmelo Anthony's reaction to the gold medal.

The hoops star, who plays for the New York Knicks in the NBA, got very emotional when speaking with reporters after the game!

See, Anthony was part of the US men's 2004 Olympic team that disappointingly won a bronze medal, the only time the US did NOT win a gold since 1992.

Driven from that embarrassment, Anthony

Put him in, koach!

Lamar Odom has miraculously been recuperating from his nearly fatal overdose for about ten months now, but he's still not 100 percent in peak condition — but don't tell him that!

In fact, the 36-year-old former NBA player is already looking to get back into basketball, judging by the latest Keeping Up with the Kardashians teaser.

Move over, Michael Phelps — you've got competition!

The Olympic star may be the best swimmer in the world right now, but as far as his ten-year-old self goes, he was beat… by a man Kim Kardashian West knows very well!

In 1995, Phelps set the record for the fastest 100-meter butterfly swim for his age class (at ten years old) in the entire United States, so it shouldn't be a surprise as to how successful he is now.

But there was one ten-year-old better than Phelps that year, and it was Kris Humphries!!

NBA Pulls All-Star Game From North Carolina Over Anti-LGBT Legislation!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzLegal MattersPolitikBasketballNBAViral: NewsTransgenderLGBT

Way to go, NBA!

The NBA has had enough of North Carolina's anti-LGBT bullsh*t!

On Thursday, the Association announced that it will NOT be hosting the 2017 All-Star Game at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena because of the state's controversial bathroom bill.

This comes less than a week after NC's lawmakers had a chance to change up HB2 — which notably forces transgender individuals to use the bathrooms associated with their biological sex, rather than the gender with which they identify — but instead left the law intact.

And now, Commissioner Adam Silver has had enough.

In a new statement, the NBA explained that they can't wait any longer for the awful legislation to change, saying:

"The NBA has decided to relocate the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte with the hope of rescheduling for 2019. Since March, when North Carolina enacted HB2 and the issue of legal protections for the LGBT community in Charlotte became prominent, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets have been working diligently to foster constructive dialogue and try to effect positive change. We have been guided in these discussions by the long-standing core values of our league. These include not only diversity, inclusion, fairness and respect for others but also the willingness to listen and consider opposing points of view."

The basketball league also explained that the discriminatory bill does not uphold the NBA's values:
