Next Stop, South Beach! Indiana Pacers Defeat New York Knicks In 6 To Advance Eastern Conference Finals.
After a 9 year wait, the Indiana Pacers are headed back to the Eastern Conference finals with their 106-99 win over the New York Knicks. George Hill who missed game 5 with concussion-like symptoms returned back for the finale at home to avoid a game 7 on the road. Hill provided a much needed scoring boost netting 25 points that was missing in game 5; even grabbing 10 boards, equaling Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin’s rebounding output.
The story of game 6 was Lance Stephenson having a career-high in playoff points with 23 to put the finishing touches on his favorite team growing up in New York City. In the 4th quarter, he even scored 9 points of the Pacers 11-2 run in the final stages to finish the series, solidifying his big performance. Carmelo Anthony did all he could with scoring 39 points (29 FGA) but ran out of gas in the 4th quarter going 2-8 from the field with little to no help from the “others” in crunch-time.

Last night during the X Games Barcelona Skateboard Big Air finals, Bob Burnquist beat out Mitchie Brusco and Elliot Sloan to capture the events Gold medal. That win now puts him even with Dave Mirra and Shaun White for the X Games medal-total record.
With that being said, the story of last night wasn’t Burnquist’s historic performance; but rather 16-year-old Mitchie Brusco landing the Big Air’s first ever 1080 on the MegaRamp quarter-pipe. Already winning the bronze in Skateboard Vert landing his first 900 the day prior, Brusco increased the stakes in successfully pulling off a 1080 in his first try.
Tony Hawk, 50 Cent (Yes, That 50 Cent) were all in attendance in awe screaming at the top of their lungs, actually seeing a 1080 in person during the MegaRamp. You can check after the jump to watch one of the most insane tricks ever pulled off in the history of X Games skateboarding.

The James Bond series could be making a major upgrade in the director category, as it is being reported that Christopher Nolan has been contacted about the position. This comes after SkyFall director Sam Mendes said he would not be returning for the followup film in the series. They can do no better than Christoper Nolan, who completely transformed the Batman franchise making it one of the more classic trilogy’s in recent memory.
There were some reports yesterday that Nolan had accepted the position to direct Bond 24, but according to sources they are just in the early stages of negotiations. One of the obstacles in the way of this is Nolan is currently directing his upcoming sci-fi fantasy film Interstellar, which is set to hit theaters in November of 2014. With the new Bond set for 2016 we don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t be able to fit it in. Stay tuned for more official details in the weeks to come.

In the last 48 hours, we’ve witnessed by far the biggest Kanye West frenzy since his emergence into the game exactly a decade ago. In 2003, Kanye West had finally stepped into the limelight with the release of his “Get Well Soon…” mixtape which he was dealing with a major life changing event after recovering from a tragic car accident. 10 years later, he’s having another life changer with the pending birth of his upcoming first child, as his career has never been at an all-time high like we’re witnessing now.
From premiering his new Kim-K dedicated track “Awesome” during the week at NYC’s “Adult Swim Upfront Party,” and last nights memorable 66-city/4 continent reveal of his upcoming music “New Slaves”; Kanye season has been in full effect, mirroring the excitement seen from the College Dropout years.
Today we felt like going back in time today to one of our favorite tracks from ‘Ye, with the Syleena Johnson-featured “All Falls Down.” When the single released, we were initially heartbroken the original “Self Conscious (All Falls Down)” version with L-Boogie never saw the retail scene, but we still managed to fall in love with it. Enjoy our Stacey Dash starring flashback video today, as Kanye gives us his first person perspective ((literally)) with special cameos from Common, Kel Mitchell and more.

Do you really know what “water” is? Did you know your day is just a big cycle of itself, and the natural default setting is just on a boring regular day? Horrible days can always show its ugly head when you least want to, its life. Or is it?
Eight years ago author David Foster Wallace was approached to give a commencement speech to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. His address caught everyone off guard, as he tells the graduates what life is all about after you studied so hard for that degree they so desperately wanted. This speech didn’t become popular until after his tragic death, which was three years ago.
This documentary shows how to truly think with all your conscience, and that there’s more to life then the same thing. With the amazing visual to his powerful words, you can’t help but rethink your situation as a whole. This is very inspirational to anybody who feels that life is just at ends with stress, exhaustion, and that state of mind to just go with the flow. Take a quick break and see for yourself, that life is truly what you make it.
